Chargers RB Austin Ekeler should be a must start week 13 after returning from his injury

Austin Ekeler Chargers
Chargers running back Austin Ekeler has been activated off injured reserve, and boy did he shine in week 12. I think he tears it up week 13.

Last week, we were not too sure how well Austin Ekeler was going to be returning from a serious hamstring injury. Well, as a Bills fan he showed up and he showed out. I would not be afraid to play him this week against the Patriots.

Ekeler provided a much needed spark to the Chargers offense. He was the lone bright spot by carrying the ball 14 times for 44 yards, and catching 11 balls on 16 targets for 85 yards. 

The Chargers did not lose the game because of a certain player, but they had horrible clock management. The Bills let the Chargers stay in the game, and Ekeler looked sharp.

It was the first time the Chargers lost by more than one score this season. Anthony Lynn said he was not going to use Ekeler much in week 12, but he used him a lot more than we expected.

Ekeler finished with 25 touches, and I expect the Chargers to feed him in week 13. He is ready, he is explosive and he is ready to go.
