This dude any good? Ended up with him on one team but don't know a ton 

 

Where do people have him ranked for the week? 

I think the general consensus seems to be he’s not being ranked very high by a lot of analysts. Possibly they’re just playing it safe with their rankings. Or possibly they’re right. 

 

But he’s got a juicy matchup, so I think many feel that he’s a good play this week over other options who have bad matchups.

I have a feeling Ekeler is going to surprise us this week, but both are startable in fantasy.

Lol good call, my friend!

 

 

I honestly thought he was being super funny and since that guy was saying he was Austin (as in austin ekeler) he was going with the joke and complimenting the post lol.  Accidental wit...

Here is how it will go down

 

Chargers muddle around, score 13-7 for a bit, Eckler looks good while Jackson has minimal impact, Jackson owners worried, Chargers score more, up big soon, second half Eckler rests for the late year Charger run and Jackson get 20 touches producing a 20 pt PPR fantasy day

 

 

My crystal ball just rolled off my desk, hold on let me grab it.....

I can see Ekeler coming out and taking the load.  Just my dumb luck of being screwed a bit here.

Yeah something is telling me it's a setup but the matchup is too good. Lynn did say Ekeler is wearing down though

Yes, this one. That's why I asked. Thanks though.

Or maybe go back and read the previous few pages where everybody is discussing this very topic instead of asking somebody to put together a synopsis for you? That's what pastor was referring to.

No thanks. Someone helpful helped me. You are both just derailing the thread

I may be completely wrong, but to me it seems to be an easy decision...

1. Ekeler has not shined as a lead back, looked mediocre vs Pitt.

2.  Jackson looked really good against same Pitt D.

3.  HC says Ekeler is worn down.

4.  Real juicy match up vs Bengals.

 

So on paper it looks lovely like an easy decision, but then again, it’s fantasy football....after all, D Henry turned into Earl Campbell last night.

HC said Ekeler is starting. I see this as another hot hand situation and ekeler with a shorter leash. 

 

I’m not trying to pump up Jackson too much but this really doesn’t mean a whole lot when the coach names a starter. It could still end up being Jackson getting the majority of the carries.

Are you willing to gamble on that this week though? I guess it all depends on your options

I love how player outlook threads are mostly positive for guys who have a sample size (jeff wilson, justin jackson) but it's more pessimism around guys who have been consistent like Michel because they are coming off a down game.

 

This match up is tempting though but:

 

Week 6 he had 3 carries for 4 yards

Week 7 he had 2 carries for 3 yardds

 

Last 2 weeks he had 7 and 8 carries and has been very efficient. The big question to me is how many touches could he get vs the Bengals with Ekeler in the picture.

from what anyone sees, any jeaopardy of gordon missing week 15 and jackson being relevant for moire than this sunday?

 

of course ... all "indications" are that MGIII will be back next Thursday, but i've yet to see anything concrete as far as solid optimism goes.

The team can not afford for Ekeler to get hurt, they should have a pretty easy day against Cincy. JJ will probably get the majority of the touches. Gordon isn’t going to get rushed back into action since they have a good lead on the other WC teams. SD is probably throwing around 20 passes and that leaves 30+ runs. Huge day coming for JJ.  It’s an easy call.

Nobody really knows outside of Gordon and the team. Sure some analysts might be able to give an estimate based on previous player injury history data but at this point until there is more concrete data it's merely speculation. Plus, even Gordon does come back sooner rather than later who knows how much he will still be dealing with the injury and thus how effective he will be on the field.
