Austin Ekeler: Two TDs caps off historic season

Ekeler registered 16 carries for 64 yards and also caught five of his 12 targets for 35 yards to go along with two total touchdowns in Sunday's 35-32 overtime loss to the Raiders.

Analysis: Ekeler ultimately tied the Colts' Jonathan Taylor for the most total touchdowns this season despite playing one fewer game as the dynamic running back asserted himself as one of the premier red-zone specialists in the NFL and answered his critics by remaining mostly healthy despite a massive increase in workload. The fifth-year running back did fall short of his lofty projections in terms of receptions, but that's in large part because Ekeler was forced to take on far more carries than anticipated. The Chargers are expected to aggressively target a complimentary back to Ekeler this offseason either through the draft or free agency, but after a career year nearly across the board in his first year in Joe Lombardi's system, it's hard to imagine the genie getting put back in the bottle.
