Austin Ekeler

The last time we met up against Baltimore, we didn’t have Austin on the field. I like Justin Jackson and he will get better and better as he gets more seasoned in the league, but Austin brings something different to the field when he is out there.

Austin knows how to find the holes in a zone defense to become an option for Phil in the passing game. He gets the little dump passes and makes big plays out of them. He brings a different element to the field when he is out there and is another weapon to add for Philip.

Melvin Gordon will have a good game, but this is a game where Austin’s change of pace will give Baltimore problems.

What players are you going to keep your eyes on in this game?
