Since Melvin Gordon left Los Angeles and seeing what Ekeler was able to produce in 2019, fantasy football players have been hyping up Chargers running back Austin Ekeler. The excitement to draft Ekeler has gotten so inflated, he’s now being drafted at the tail-end of the first round or very beginning of the second round. But Sports Illustrated’s fantasy football analyst Shawn Childs says that’s too high of a price and thus calls him the BUST of the year. Childs was joined by ChargerReport editor Fernando Ramirez to discuss Ekeler’s outlook for 2020.
