Ekeler has not played a game since his 26-point PPR performance in Week 1 and will not see the field again until Week 6 at the earliest, with the Chargers bye falling in Week 5. It’s undoubtedly been a disappointing start to the season for Ekeler and his managers, but at this point fantasy managers can rest assured that a concrete timeline for his return is in place. He’ll have a tough matchup in Week 6 against the Cowboys, but he should remain a must start in every game he’s healthy for moving forward. Josh Kelley is slated to be the lead back once again, but he’s done very little to warrant consideration as anything besides a flex start. Keenan Allen’s ridiculous workload should continue this week against the Raiders, as well.
