Chargers Expected To Let Austin Ekeler Explore Free Agency

Monday, February 26, 7:02 PM

The Los Angeles Chargers are expected to let impending free-agent running back Austin Ekeler explore free agency in 2024, according to league sources, which means they won't use the franchise tag on him. Ekeler was one of the biggest early round fantasy busts in 2023, as the 28-year-old finished with 628 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 179 carries in 14 games in his seventh year with the Chargers. He also had 51 receptions (74 targets) for 436 yards and one touchdown through the air. Ekeler has never had 1,000 yards rushing in his career and could face an uncertain future if he leaves LA. He's not going to be a first-round fantasy pick in fall drafts, but Ekeler has bounce-back potential if he's healthy and in a significant role, whether it be with the Chargers or another team.

Zamir White With A Huge Workload In Week 18

Sunday, January 7, 7:23 PM

Las Vegas Raiders running back Zamir White got the start again and handled another huge workload in Week 18 against the Denver Broncos. White had 25 carries for 112 yards on the ground. The Raiders running back around brought in one of his two targets for nine yards in this contest. White finished his season strong and made a great case to be the team's starting running back if Josh Jacobs departs in the offseason. White and the Raiders have been eliminated from the playoffs, so their season has ended. Fantasy managers and Raiders fans will be interested to see what transpires before the beginning of next season for this team that cleared house in the middle of the season.
