Austin Ekeler to return soon?

To all fantasy managers that didn't drop Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler, he has a message for you.

When he says that "the time draws near," it's unclear how "near."

The Chargers have employed a committee backfield since Ekeler was injured with Joshua Kelley, Justin Jackson and even Kalen Ballage leading the backfield in different weeks.

Before leaving Week 4 early, Ekeler had 20-plus touches in the first three games of the season -- 47/236/1 rushing and 16/142 in those three games.

We have updated our rest-of-season fantasy running back rankings and moved Ekeler up to RB17.
