While he still has one more day to log at least a limited practice ahead of the Chargers Week 2 game against the Titans, it‘s trending more and more in the direction of Josh Kelley assuming the led role in LA’s backfield. After both receiving the same number of touches in the Chargers’ Week 1 game against the Dolphins, Kelley’s stock was already on its way up; he was also one of the top waiver wire additions this week. Kelley might not be the talent that Ekeler is, but on an offense that ran the ball as effectively as the Chargers did in Week 1, he has the potential to finish as a Top-12 back. This would be Ekeler’s first game missed since Week 16 of the 2021 season.
