Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler and Matt Harmon are back for another great episode of Ekeler’s Edge. In this one, Austin talks about the mistakes he made in the team’s loss to the Las Vegas Raiders and trying to overcome that disappointment to focus on the next game.
We open up Austin’s fantasy rosters to see how his teams are doing and which players helped or hurt him this season, which leads to a conversation about 2023 draft strategy and if fantasy managers should be taking QBs and TEs in the first round.
In the Ask Austin mailbag, Ekeler talks about why running backs aren’t paid as much as other positions and discusses where his motivation comes from (and why it’s good to not have a goal or direction).
Finally, Matt chats with Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb about his own fantasy team (and when his brother drafted him before CeeDee has the chance) and if he wants Odell Beckham Jr. to join the potent Cowboys offense.
