Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
With Melvin Gordon now in Denver, Justin Jackson should enter 2020 as the RB2 for the Chargers. Given that Austin Ekeler is much more of a receiving threat, Jackson could find himself in a good spot as the Thunder to Ekeler's lightning. It will be key for Jackson to establish himself as the goal-line rusher for him to have a chance at being fantasy relevant in 2020.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We all watched Raheem Mostert take off during the 2019 season, right? He had tremendous numbers when on the field in his earlier years, just like Jackson, who's averaged 5.14 yards per carry over his career to this point. Jackson is going to be fighting for playing time with fourth-round rookie Joshua Kelley this year trying to earn that Melvin Gordon role. It seems likely that the Chargers want Kelley in that role, but is Jackson good enough for them to change their course? It's a situation to monitor, as this will be a run-heavy team.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.
Kyle Yates

One of Justin Jackson or Joshua Kelley is going to be the starting RB alongside Austin Ekeler in this Chargers backfield. It's a mystery as to who it will be right now, but one of them is going to be valuable for fantasy football. If you can guess right, you may have a FLEX-type RB option that you got in one of the last rounds of your draft. At their current ADPs, both Jackson and Kelley are worth taking shots on.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.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
I'm backing Joshua Kelley to take the coveted Chargers big man role this season, but Jackson is still a possibility. Either way, there's rather limited upside for the winner so it's a gamble worth avoiding.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.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Jackson has been effective in limited work in his career, but has always been third in the pecking order in the Chargers backfield. With Melvin Gordon now in Denver, Jackson has a real chance to see consistent touches for the first time in his career. Austin Ekeler doesn't have the frame to stand up to a workhorse role, and he had fumble issues near the goal-line last year. Joshua Kelley is a threat to Jackson, but with a limited offseason, Jackson should get first crack at seeing roughly 10 touches per game and perhaps goal-line work behind Ekeler. 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Chargers 'still very high on' RB Justin Jackson. he's an intriguing under the radar RB. -Only RB with 30+ touches to have a juke rate over 30% in each of the past 2 seasons. -1 of 5 RBs to have 1k+ ru yds and 20+ rec in every college season. (Joined by Saquon, Dalvin, and Dobbins). @DaltonGuruFFLots 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.
