Season Projections
There probably isn't reason to expect anything more than Austin Ekeler's 108 target 2019, but why can't it happen again? Sure, the Chargers moved on from Philip Rivers and it's only a matter of time before rookie quarterback Justin Herbert is under center but that may not be a negative when it comes to Ekeler's fantasy production. Hebert comes with the lowest aDOT in this year's rookie class, a tape history of finding the check-down if the first read isn't there, and an offense built heavily around flat routes to the running back. The stars have aligned for Ekeler again as a strong repeat candidate. We understand the hesitation in getting behind this profile on this offense, but the data says not to, especially in PPR formats.

Rushing: 426 Yards, 2 TD.
Receiving: 47 Receptions, 446 Yards, 5 TD.
