Chargers OC Joe Lombardi compared Austin Ekeler to Alvin Kamara, Reggie Bush, and Darren Sproles.
Lombardi's background is with the Saints, who have utilized their running backs in the pass game better than any team in the modern era. Ekeler's abilities should be maximized under Lombardi who helped turn Sproles, Bush, and Kamara into PPR cheat codes. Lombardi also mentioned using an up-tempo offense and being aggressive on fourth downs, so it's possible that the Chargers will take a leap in 2021. They certainly have the talent on both sides of the ball to do so. Ekeler belongs in the top-six mix in PPR formats. Jan 26 7:05 pm (EST)
