Austin Ekeler's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Austin Ekeler to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 182 projected fantasy points puts him at #9 behind Nick Chubb and ahead of Derrick Henry. He has averaged 11.09 fantasy points in his past 17 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 13 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #7 ranked running back. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is not projected for elite value. Austin Ekeler is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #4 fantasy position rank.

WEEKLY OUTLOOK

Austin Ekeler is projected for 15.9 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #5 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Chris Carson but behind Dalvin Cook. Week 4 will be a great week where he is projected to be the #1 running back. He is projected for 20 fantasy points.
