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 odd that Richard was re-signed to the Raiders roster when they said they wanted to get Josh Jacobs more involved in the passing game, as Richard is the primary competition. Not just that, but they then drafted running back/wide receiver Lynn Bowden in the second round. However we slice it, Richard isn't likely to top the 43 targets he got in 2019, which makes him a non-factor in fantasy leagues.

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.Richard is back with the Raiders for another season, but he's more of a thorn in the side for fantasy players than anything else. Richard isn't going to see enough passing volume to be relevant, but he's going to be involved enough in the offense to steal targets from Josh Jacobs. With the addition of Lynn Bowden too, it's unlikely that Richard ever sees enough work to be put into your fantasy lineup this season.
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.Jalen Richard was reduced to a pass-catcher in 2019 with Josh Jacobs and Deandre Washington combining for the vast majority of carries. Concerningly, that role is also on the rocks with Jacobs expected to improve his catching and Lynn Bowden brought in to mess things up further. Richard remains undraftable but may once again pop up as a waiver add in PPR once bye weeks or a Josh Jacobs injury occur.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Richard saw a dip in production with Josh Jacobs on the roster, but he'll always be the passing-downs thorn in Jacobs' side. The Raiders gave Richard a two-year extension this offseason, so despite talk of Jacobs' added involvement in the passing game, Richard should continue to hold his role. Unfortunately, that role isn't worth that much, particularly with Lynn Bowden added to the mix. Richard is worth a look in extremely deep PPR formats, nothing more.
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.The Raiders are giving Richard a 2-year deal worth $7 million, source said. He gets up to $8 million with $4.6 million fully guaranteed.
