It’s another Wednesday edition of “Ekeler’s Edge” as Matt Harmon and LA Chargers RB Austin Ekeler head into Week 8 NFL action. In this week’s pod, Ekeler speaks candidly about the team and himself as he has failed to live up to expectations so far this season with a current record of 2-4. Harmon and Ekeler also discuss why even the supposedly best teams in the league struggled with consistency for seven weeks this year.
The two then provide an update on the Ekeler Invitational fantasy league and why it might be time for Harmon to make some big trade moves given his 3-4 record in the league. Ekeler also suggests that Harmon trade him for himself.
In our latest edition of Trading Secrets, the two go into detail about why the Eagles are so successful at the tush push and why other teams struggle to repeat the game. Harmon also considers whether Ekeler would be a candidate for the tush push play for the Chargers. Ekeler’s reaction is priceless.
The two then close the show with their bold fantasy predictions for Week 8.
