  • Isaiah Spiller Running With The Second- And Third-Team Offense

    Los Angeles Chargers rookie running back Isaiah Spiller was drafted 123rd overall in this year's draft, in large part because of a poor performance at the combine. Despite his lower draft capital, he still finds himself in a fantastic position, competing for the backup role in an electrifying offense. Spiller was reportedly playing with the second-team and third-team offense, which is not surprising for a rookie this early in camp behind Austin Ekeler. Spiller will not be handed the backup role but will have every chance to earn it. If he is able to establish himself as the No. 2 option, he will become a valuable insurance back for Ekeler that fantasy managers would be wise to target.

  • Austin Ekeler Doesn't Expect A Smaller Workload

    Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler handled a career-high in touches during the 2021 season, however, the dual-threat back doesn't expect his workload to change much as he enters his sixth season. "As far as my load, maybe it can be altered a little bit, but I don't think it will go down." Ekeler handled the most carries of his career with 206 last season while adding 70 receptions on 94 targets. With rookie Isaiah Spiller added to the mix, there is the chance we could see the rookie handle more of the load as a ball-carrier, while Ekeler sees similar usage to his 2019 season, when he handled just 132 carries and caught 92 passes. Regardless of how he will be used, the 27-year-old should be picked in the first round of fantasy drafts.
