Larry Rountree
22-Year-Old Running BackRB
2021 Fantasy Outlook
For the third straight year, the Chargers tabbed a running back in the NFL draft, this time around selecting Rountree in the sixth round. At 5-10, 211 pounds, the Missouri product could emerge as a short-yardage option for the team. A reported 4.62 40-yard dash at his pro day seems to confirm the lack of breakaway speed that routinely shows up on Rountree's collegiate tape, but the three-year starter was a dependable workhorse who also has experience playing on special teams. That should help his cause in what is already shaping up to be a tight competition for backup slotting, with returnees in Kelley and Justin Jackson also in the mix. Read Past Outlooks

Clearly grabs backup role

September 13, 2021
Rountree carried the ball eight times for 27 yards in Sunday's 20-16 win over Washington.
ANALYSIS
While the yardage total was nothing to write home about, the fact Rountree outsnapped supposed No. 2 back Justin Jackson by a 28-to-11 margin was certainly consequential, and the rookie ballcarrier even mixed in alongside Austin Ekeler during the many two-back offensive sets Sunday. It appears as if Rountree's excellent training camp has cemented his status as the back to roster should Ekeler go down with an injury.
