Austin Ekeler Not Expected To Play Sunday

Friday, September 29, 5:15 PM

According to ESPN's Kris Rhim, Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler (ankle) isn't expected to play on Sunday versus the Raiders. The veteran injured his ankle in the regular-season opener against the Miami Dolphins and has missed the last two games. As a result, Joshua Kelley has been the top guy on the depth chart the last two weeks, although he hasn't taken advantage of his additional workload, totaling just 51 yards off 24 touches. Kelley is hard to trust entering Week 4. Yet, he still warrants consideration from managers in deeper fantasy setups. Regarding Ekeler, the Chargers have a bye on the horizon, meaning he might return for the Week 6 clash with the Dallas Cowboys.

D'Andre Swift A Top-Tier RB2 In Week 4

Friday, September 29, 8:05 PM

Philadelphia Eagles running back D'Andre Swift will face the division-rival Washington Commanders in Week 4 on Sunday. The 24-year-old has put up 319 scrimmage yards over the past two weeks and scored one touchdown. On paper, Tampa Bay was a tough matchup for Swift last week, but he overcame it and averaged over eight yards per carry. This week's matchup against Washington is similar. However, they just allowed James Cook of Buffalo to over 100 total yards and average 6.5 yards per carry. The Eagles' starting back is becoming matchup-proof and should be treated as a top-tier RB2 in Week 4.
