Austin Ekeler Officially Inactive For Week 4

Sunday, October 1, 2:51 PM

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler (ankle) is officially inactive for Week 4 versus the Las Vegas Raiders. Ekeler has now missed three consecutive games heading into Los Angeles' bye week. Joshua Kelley will operate as the Chargers' lead back once again, though his stats over the duration of Ekeler's absence have been uninspiring. Here's merely a fantasy RB3/FLEX at this point.

Khalil Herbert Goes Off In Week 4

Sunday, October 1, 9:36 PM

Chicago Bears running back Khalil Herbert made easy work of the Denver Broncos defense in Week 4. Before the game, the expectation was that Roschon Johnson was going to see a majority of the carries. However, that wasn't the case during Sunday's contest. Herbert rushed 18 times for 103 yards, while hauling in four receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown in the loss. This was an odd outburst in usage for Herbert who saw only 14 carries combined during the past two games. It remains to be seen what kind of role he'll have in the Week 5 matchup against the Washington Commanders. Herbert will be a low-end flex option for that contest.
