McGuire. Should have an easier path to playing time and producing.

I am going to go with McGuire. For one, he is good. For 2...Who the heck is Austin Ekeler? I've read a lot about the 2017 draft class, listened to a bunch of podcast, read post on football forums...and this post is the first I am hearing of Austin Ekeler. Seriously, who is he?

I google him and read that he made the team. That's all I know of him.

Ekeler. Jets insist on using Forte when healthy and are committed to RBBC.

Oliver is nothing special and Gordon is playing injured. Typical Chargers game script gives Ekeler a chance to be Woodhead Jr if he gets the opportunity.

Normally a solid point. However, the Chargers have a new coaching staff for 2017, and so the game scripts from prior years cannot be counted on. To date, the current coaches appear to prefer a work-horse RB approach.

That approach could change, but we need to see it or at least hear it from the coaches.

I think at 0-4 something will need to change or Lynn may not be coaching much longer. Combine that with Gordon's nagging knee injury and there's opportunity to be had.

But good point - mostly new staff.
