Player Outlook
Spiller will battle a crowded running back room to try to supplant Joshua Kelley as the RB2 in Los Angeles behind Austin Ekeler. To do so, he's going to need a lot better second season. Spiller only played in six games last year due partially to injury and only touched the ball 21 times in those six games. What's worse is that he was miserable on those 21 touches, averaging 2.6 yards per touch compared to 5.3 for Ekeler and 4.7 for Kelley. Holding Spiller in Dynasty makes sense, at least through September, but he's irrelevant in redraft unless he beats out Kelley in training camp.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Not playing in season finale

    Spiller (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 18 game against the Chiefs. Spiller had seen his role increase a bit over the past four weeks after regularly logging DNP-CDs earlier in the campaign, but he's back to being held out for the Chargers' final game of the campaign. The running back will thus finish his second NFL season with 37 carries for 96 yards and six catches on six targets for 34 yards over nine contests. Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley will man the backfield for Los Angeles on Sunday.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Does little in loss

    Spiller lost a yard on his lone carry and caught both of his targets for 10 yards in the 16-9 loss to the Broncos on Sunday. The Chargers struggled to get anything going on the ground as they averaged just 86 rushing yards on 24 carries across seven different ballcarriers. Spiller appears to have displaced Joshua Kelley as the team's No. 2 back behind Austin Ekeler considering Spiller played 12 snaps to Kelley's six, but the increase in playing time hasn't yielded much production for the 2022 fourth-round pick.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Serves as lead back Thursday

    Spiller rushed 16 times for 50 yards in the Chargers' 63-21 loss to the Raiders on Thursday night. Head coach Brandon Staley had alluded to the Chargers' ground attack evolving into a more competitive scenario prior to Week 14, but Austin Ekeler had remained the clear lead back in Los Angeles' loss to the Broncos on Sunday. However, that changed drastically in Thursday's lopsided contest, with Spiller outpacing Ekeler by 11 carries. Spiller wasn't able to do much with the opportunity, however, and given he saw 16 rush attempts, the highly unusual game script can't really be blamed. With the team's season seemingly lost and Staley potentially coaching his last few games in Los Angeles, it remains to be seen how the workload in the ground attack will be distributed in a Week 16 home matchup against the Bills on Saturday, Dec. 23.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Increased production in loss

    Spiller recorded six carries for 19 yards in Sunday's 24-7 loss to the Broncos. Spiller had a season high in rushing yards and attempts, and out-snapped second-string running back Joshua Kelley by five. Considering the 22-year-old has only played in six games to date, it's unclear if the additional workload will be permanent moving forward, or just a one-week oddity. With Justin Herbert (finger) done for the season, the Chargers could experiment with the backfield in a variety of ways, but it seems unlikely Spiller will outright displace starting running back Austin Ekeler in the coming weeks.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Active versus Broncos

    Spiller is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Spiller has been a regular healthy scratch of late, but he'll be in uniform and has a chance to see some touches versus Denver, as the Chargers look for a potential spark in their ground game. Though Austin Ekeler remains in line to start, Joshua Kelley and Spiller are also expected to see work in the team's Week 14 backfield, with Ian Rapoport of NFL Network suggesting that Los Angeles may employ a 'hot hand' approach with its running backs Sunday.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Inactive versus Ravens

    Spiller (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Spiller wasn't listed on the Chargers' Week 12 injury report. With Elijah Dotson also a healthy scratch Sunday night, the Chargers will roll with a backfield featuring Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Good to go for Week 12

    Spiller (illness) isn't listed on the Week 12 injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Ravens. Spiller missed Week 11's date with the Packers. The Chargers' No. 3 running back, Spiller has 12 carries for 27 scoreless yards on the season. He's reeled in all three of his pass-game targets for 15 yards.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Missing Week 11

    Spiller (illness) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Packers, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports. The Chargers originally listed Spiller as questionable for Week 11 after he recorded a DNP at Friday's practice, and it now seems as if the second-year running back won't be well enough to suit up Sunday. Spiller has played a minimal role in Los Angeles' offense thus far, recording 47 total yards on 15 touches.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Lands on injury report

    Spiller (illness) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Packers. Spiller popped up on Los Angeles' injury report after he didn't participate in Friday's practice, and he seems to be dealing with an illness that could hold him out of Sunday's contest. The second-year running back has appeared in only five games for the Chargers this season, recording 27 rushing yards on 12 attempts.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Inactive versus Jets

    Spiller (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday night's game against the Jets. With Elijah Dotson also inactive Monday, the Chargers will proceed with a Week 9 backfield comprised of Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley. In five games this season, Spiller has logged 12 carries for 27 yards and three catches for 20 yards.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Playing time secured

    Spiller carried the ball five times for 12 yards and also caught both of his receptions for 15 yards in the 24-17 win over the Raiders on Sunday. At this point, it's clear Spiller has surpassed Elijah Dotson as the team's No. 3 running back behind the injured Austin Ekeler (ankle) and Joshua Kelley. With Ekeler likely to return following the Chargers' Week 5 bye, Spiller likely falls out of fantasy relevance in all but the deepest of leagues.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Sees second-string snaps in win

    Spiller carried the ball twice for seven yards in the 28-24 win over the Vikings on Sunday. Spiller wound up playing 16 snaps compared to Elijah Dotson's one, so for at least one game, it appears as if the 2022 fourth-round pick might have moved up the depth chart somewhat. Austin Ekeler (ankle) seems like he could be closer to returning, which would in turn bump Joshua Kelley and everyone else down a peg in terms of playing time.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Hardly plays in loss

    Spiller carried the ball once for three yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Titans. With Austin Ekeler (ankle) out, the Chargers relied heavily on Joshua Kelley (54 snaps) and mixed in Elijah Dotson (nine snaps), with Spiller tallying just four. At this point, it appears as if the 2022 fourth-round pick has been completely cast aside, especially considering he was a healthy scratch in Week 1.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Healthy scratch Sunday

    Spiller (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Dolphins. Spiller will stay on the sidelines as the team opts to go with Elijah Dotson as its No. 3 back against Miami. The former will try to earn the chance to suit up Week 2 against the Titans.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Solid with seven touches Saturday

    Spiller rushed five times for 27 yards and brought in both targets for 11 yards in the Chargers' 34-17 preseason win over the Rams on Saturday night. The 2022 fourth-round pick was the second running back to receive a touch behind Joshua Kelley, with Spiller entering on the second possession of the game. Kelley, his primary competition for the No. 2 running back role, logged four more carries and gained twice as many rushing yards, but Spiller helped offset that to an extent with his pair of receptions. The job battle between the two will continue to unfold during a preseason home matchup against the Saints on Sunday night, Aug. 20.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Disappointing rookie season

    Spiller finished the 2022-23 season with just 41 yards on 18 carries and caught all three of his targets for 13 yards. Spiller appeared in just six games during his rookie season, as he was the odd-man out in the Chargers' backfield. The rookie running back was unable to carve himself a consistent role on offense and was repeatedly a healthy scratch. With Sony Michel now gone, Spiller will look to live up to his status as a fourth-round pick and will compete with Joshua Kelley for a more prominent role next season.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Inactive versus Rams

    Spiller (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams. With Spiller the odd man out Sunday, Austin Ekeler, Joshua Kelley and Larry Rountree are in line to handle Chargers' backfield duties in Week 17.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Role diminished in win

    Spiller carried the ball two times for three yards while catching his only target for two yards Sunday in the 25-24 win against the Cardinals. Spiller saw his usage drop compared to the past three weeks, as he was outplayed by Joshua Kelley who made his return to action after missing four games with a sprained MCL. Kelley seemed to reestablish himself as the primary backup behind Austin Ekeler, playing 14 snaps compared to just eight snaps from the rookie running back. Even with a favorable matchup against the Raiders next week, Spiller doesn't have much fantasy value save for the deepest of leagues.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Week 12 Waiver Priority List

    Spiller is the No. 2 running back for the Chargers behind Austin Ekeler since he's played the second-most snaps at the position for three games in a row, ahead of Sony Michel. That makes Spiller a lottery-ticket to roster in all leagues for up to 5 percent of your remaining FAB. Should something happen to Ekeler, Spiller and Michel would likely split touches, but Spiller offers more upside. The wild card in all of this is Joshua Kelley (knee), who could return before the season ends. But for now, stash Spiller where available if you have an open roster spot in deeper leagues.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Stashes (RB Preview)

    Spiller was the No. 2 back behind Ekeler in Week 9. If he's the handcuff to Ekeler now, he needs to be rostered in close to half of leagues, if not more.
