Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler very pleased his fantasy football manager in Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Ekeler has always been a fantasy football stud and once again showed why with his two-touchdown performance on Monday Night Football. He rushed 18 times for 67 yards and his two scores, allowing the Chargers to dominate 20-3.
actually his 5th game of the season He also led the NFL with 20 touchdowns last season, and if things stay that way for the rest of the campaign, he’ll be in the league. Consecutive season leader. Todd Gurley is the last person to achieve this feat in 2017 and his 2018.
Back in fantasy football, Ekeler finished with 79 total yards (including 12 receiving yards on four receptions) and two TDs.That result Up to 23.9 Fantasy Points per ESPN.
However, it will definitely be interesting to see if Ekeler can match his 20 touchdowns last season. The Chargers have two games left this year, against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 17 and the Denver Broncos in Week 18.
The Chargers have yet to face the Rams in 2022 after playing against them in preseason. As for the Broncos, Ekeler scored his one Rush TD as LA beat them 19-16 in Week 6. Considering both the Rams and Broncos have nothing to play, it could be an opportunity for Ekeler to add more to his tally.
