Notes for Player Combination
 
Joshua Kelley
RB - LAC
Expert 
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.The Darrynton Evans hype is beginning to explode as the young Appalachian State runner slots in behind Derrick Henry in the run-friendly Titans offense. While Henry has shown the ability to handle the workload, there's always a risk he breaks down and that makes Evans a good handcuff. He also has very limited PPR standalone value.
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.If you haven't looked at the depth chart behind Derrick Henry in Tennessee, you should know that Evans is the only one who should be considered his handcuff. The Titans worked out a long-term deal with Henry, so Evans may not even be in their long-term plans at the position even after they drafted him in the third round. But although he may not be built like a workhorse back, he has the potential to be electric in a run-heavy offense. The Titans would be wise to give him 5-10 touches even when Henry is healthy, though there's no guarantee that will be the case.
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.Darrynton Evans slides in as the perfect compliment to Derrick Henry. Evans will receive some work that could put him on the edge of fantasy relevance, but he carries tremendous upside if Derrick Henry were to miss any time due to injury. If you're the Henry owner in Dynasty, I'd consider reaching to ensure that you secure Darrynton Evans.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
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.
