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. 
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.Benny Snell has won out in the backup battle of Pittsburgh with Anthony McFarland Jr nothing more than a name on the depth chart for the moment. It would take a lot of changes for McFarland to become in relevant player this season.
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.The Steelers have already said that if James Conner is healthy, they want him to be that "lead back" that Mike Tomlin has always leaned on. They also said they believe Benny Snell can be that guy if something were to happen to Conner. That doesn't mean McFarland will be chopped liver, but it does mean he's not going to be a 10-plus touch running back without injury. I've compared McFarland to Chris Thompson, which would make sense based on the Steelers' comments on the power running backs. If he gets 6-10 touches per week, he has enough explosion on a per-play basis to make an impact at times, but nothing you want to rely on consistently.
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.Anthony McFarland has shown the juice to be a spark plug for an offense that could develop into a full-time starter down the road. With James Conner and Jaylen Samuels ahead of him, it's unlikely that we see McFarland have much fantasy football relevancy in 2020, but he could be a great plug-and-play option if James Conner were to go down with an injury again. If I'm the Conner owner in Dynasty, I'm making sure I don't leave my draft without McFarland.

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.
