Rookie out of Western State (Colorado). Currently he is not anywhere to be found on the DS site, but maybe he should be?

October 2, 2017 7:43 PM EDT | by RotoWire Staff
Ekeler is expected to see an uptick in usage moving forward, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports. "Every drive he's in the game, we move the chains," head coach Anthony Lynn said of the running back after Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Eagles dropped the team to 0-4.
Despite turning heads throughout training camp and the preseason, Ekeler didn't see much action during the first three games of the season. However, he received his first professional carry in Week 4 and took it 35 yards to the house while clearly proving he possesses the quick-twitch explosiveness to succeed at the professional level. It's not clear if Lynn envisions the undrafted rookie as someone who could quickly supplant Branden Oliver as the direct backup to starter Melvin Gordon, but, at a minimum, Ekeler seems destined to see added work on passing downs moving forward.
