Ekeler has yet to run for 600 yards in an NFL season, but he's a no-brainer RB1 anyway, thanks to some truly elite pass-game usage. Over the past three seasons, Ekeler has posted more receptions per game (4.6) than the likes of James White and Nyheim Hines â€" even more than Panthers wideout Robby Anderson. And with all due respect to White and Hines, Ekeler is no mere third-down scatback. He's also the Chargers most gifted and dependable runner, with a particularly thin depth chart below his name. Despite scoring only 3 touchdowns last year, Ekeler finished as the per-game RB11 in PPR leagues, which feels like a fair median to target for 2021. It's unlikely Joshua Kelley (3.2 yards per rush as a rookie), Justin Jackson (19 missed games over 3 years), or sixth-round rookie Larry Rountree puts much more of a dent in Ekeler's usage.
