Ekeler’s Edge is back and better than ever before. Los Angeles RB Austin Ekeler joins Matt Harmon to kick of the show’s third season with a mission to provide the best real, and of course fantasy, football conversations and content this fall.

Ekeler and Harmon start off the pod by recapping a rather tumultuous season for Ekeler and the RB position in the NFL. The seven-year veteran explains how the narrative around the running back’s value to a team has gotten out of control and why the franchise tag is hurt, not helping, players try to maximize their earning potential.

The two then breakdown Dalvin Cook and Ezekiel Elliott’s landing spots and why both will help, not hinder, the RB1s in place in New York and New England. Ekeler then reveals the RB he’s most intrigued to watch this year and then takes us ‘Under the Hood’ of training camp to explain how fast he’s learning Kellen Moore’s new offense in LA.

The two end the show by providing their boldest fantasy prediction for 2023.
