Chargers fans don't want to hear this about one of their favorites, but Ekeler's time in Los Angeles might be over. And that wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing after how he played in 2023.

Ekeler had to perform well in a contract season after the relationship between him and the organization soured last offseason when the Chargers refused to give him a contract extension. Yet, he ended up putting together one of the least productive seasons of his NFL career.

He finished with 3.5 rushing yards per attempt and five rushing touchdowns in 14 games. He continued to be a weapon in the passing game as well. However, Ekeler wasn't as effective on that side either, finishing with one receiving touchdown for the year.

According to PFF, Ekeler is the 56th-ranked running back, which is probably much lower than where Chargers fans see their star offensive weapon.
