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 kind of crazy how fast everyone fell off the Bernard bandwagon, as he was once considered a borderline RB1. He is obviously behind Joe Mixon on the depth chart, but that's the only player standing between him and a 15-touch role. Mixon is also in a contract year and has threatened a holdout without a new contract. If we get closer to the NFL season and Mixon still hasn't been locked up long term, Bernard should be someone you consider in the late rounds.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Had Bernard not missed six games in 2016 that artificially kept his numbers down, he'd be coming off three straight years of declining touches. As it is, he's been nothing more than a change-of-pace back for the last two seasons, who occasionally factors into the passing game but rarely does anything noteworthy. Even with an injury to Joe Mixon, it's doubtful that Bernard would carry the load himself given his age and size, so he's best ignored in fantasy circles.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 He's never had fewer than 40 targets, or 30 receptions in a season, plays consistently around 40% of the time, and also gets to play with Joe Burrow, strange they don't sub him out when Mixon comes off
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.

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.
