Kalen Ballage records 71 yards for Chargers
Los Angeles Chargers running back rushed 16 times for 44 yards and caught 7 passes (9 targets) for 27 yards in a 34-28, Week 11 win over the New York Jets.
Ballage racked up 23 touches for a second straight week but he only averaged 3.1 yards per, more than a yard less than last week. That being said, Ballage has still cleared 70 scrimmage yards in every game as the Chargers' lead back while dominating touches, regardless of the game script. Ballage should see a voluminous role for at least one more week while Justin Jackson (knee) and Austin Ekeler (knee) are both sidelined. The Chargers will play the Buffalo Bills in Week 12.
Ballage scored 10.6 FanDuel points in Week 11 and is averaging 12.9 FanDuel points over the last three games. He has the fifth-most carries among running backs in that span and has graded as Pro Football Focus' No. 25 running back out of 44 with at least 15 carries over the last three weeks. The Bills were No. 23 in terms of rush defense efficiency entering Week 11.
