Jacob Wayne
Lineups
 The 49ers originally signed McKinnon to a four-year, $30 million contract in 2018 as they expected the former Viking to be the lead back in Kyle Shanahan's offense. McKinnon hasn't played a single game for the team and hasn't played since 2017, but the team is excited about his potential impact this season. McKinnon had proven himself as an electric pass-catcher and dynamic open-field runner prior to his injuries, and while it's tough to predict where he will be at health-wise, his fantasy upside is tremendous. He's a great late-round flier.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
The fourth-round rookie out of UCLA has a realistic shot to play meaningful snaps for the Chargers this season. Despite Austin Ekeler's breakout 2019 campaign, Kelley will reportedly have a role out of the backfield and could spell the former from time to time, giving him some end-of-the-bench appeal in most formats. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We figured the Chargers might add a running back to replace Melvin Gordon, and it appears Kelley is that guy, though some are torn on whether it's him or Justin Jackson to get the bigger workload. Knowing they invested a fourth-round pick on Kelley, it seems likely that he'll get the first crack at the job. Realistically, it could be a three-headed backfield between them. This won't be the same offense it was with Philip Rivers and we're likely to lose some overall potential from a fantasy perspective. But for now, we should assume that Kelley is the handcuff to Ekeler, even though they're completely different players.It's been a while since we've seen McKinnon on a football field. He's been with the 49ers for two years but hasn't played a down of regular season football. Now that they've traded away Matt Breida, there's a role to be had, but we don't know if he's capable at this stage of his career. There's been some whispers that he may not make the team, though that may be a surprise considering they've held onto him this long. Between Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, and McKinnon, it's going to be tough to find consistent volume and production in this backfield.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
With Austin Ekeler expected to handle the bulk of the workload in Los Angeles there may not be enough to go around for three backs to have value, but two is possible. It's going to come down to Kelley versus Justin Jackson for the RB2 role for the Chargers. Whoever gets it could have some stand-alone value and will definitely be worth cuffing to Ekeler. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Joshua Kelley was a player that I came away impressed with after watching his tape. After seeing his landing spot, I may be doing my best to scoop up Kelley everywhere I can in Dynasty rookie drafts. He's a back who's not afraid to embrace contact and he moves very well in between the tackles. He's the perfect compliment to Austin Ekeler and should immediately assume the Melvin Gordon role from previous seasons. While I don't believe Kelley will instantly produce the same way that Gordon did, he's going to see enough work to be fantasy relevant each week.The last news we saw regarding McKinnon was back in May when it was reported that he has yet to resume cutting on his knee. This is concerning for any player, but with McKinnon's injury history it's something that should push him completely off draft boards. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see the 49ers move on from the once promising RB.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Austin Ekeler's partner in crime is going to have some weekly value as the little RB isn't a guy you want handling 250+ carries in a season. In comes Joshua Kelley. The UCLA man was strong between the tackles last year and should provide 6-10 carries a week with enormous handcuff upside if Ekeler goes down. There is the risk Justin Jackson gets involved and that's why you can't have Kelley too high, but he is an intriguing option.Hard to believe Jerick McKinnon was being drafted in the first three rounds of 2017 fantasy drafts. Several years later and he's barely in discussions, but the 49ers definitely still know he's there. Dropping Breida would probably not have happened if Kyle Shanahan didn't believe McKinnon would offer something this season and that should give you hope that he's worth drafting in the deepest of leagues. Just be aware there's a very high chance he does absolutely nothing, but the breakout possibility is always there in this backfield.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 McKinnon has yet to play a snap for the 49ers after signing with them prior to the 2018 season. He'll be back with the team this year in another attempted comeback, but it's a crowded backfield. With Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman leading the way, McKinnon is more likely going to be a change-of-pace back and receiving option if he can stay healthy, but his looks should be few and far between. That's not a player worth drafting in almost any format.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Lots of high opinions of #UCLA RB Joshua Kelley out there. Former walk-on who worked his way up and experienced lots of success. He was also a standout performer from the Senior Bowl.
