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. 
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.It seems that Penny will start the year on the PUP list after tearing his ACL towards the end of last year. That would knock him out for at least the first six weeks, which is not something fantasy owners should be looking to draft. Even when he returns, we don't know where he stands on the depth chart, as they still have Chris Carson, then drafted DeeJay Dallas in the fourth round, and also signed Carlos Hyde in free agency. Unless you have an IR spot, Penny should be on waivers to start the season.
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.Penny is expected to start the season on the PUP list which means he'll miss at least the first six weeks of the season. Unless you have an extremely deep bench or multiple IR spots, I wouldn't draft Penny this year.
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.Penny seems destined to start the season on the PUP, which pushes him significantly down draft boards. With the uncertainty surrounding his recovery, plus the competition for touches in the Seahawks backfield, it's probably best to let Penny go to the waiver wire. Keep him on your radar though to pick up a couple weeks before his return if his recovery is going well.
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.Rashaad Penny has another injury and while that news isn't shocking, sadly the injury is. It's a shame to see him go down when he had an actual chance but it seems a good chance this season is a write-off unless Chris Carson goes down late. That makes him essentially undraftable unless you have an IR spot and noone to stash there.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Penny looked finally poised to capitalize on Chris Carson's fumble issues last year when he suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 14. Pete Carroll may be the most optimistic coach in the league when it comes to injuries, but even he seems resigned to the fact that Penny is going to need to start the year on the PUP list. Carlos Hyde's signing only further reinforces the likelihood of Penny needing to miss significant time. If so, Penny would be out until at least Week 8, and it seems unlikely that he'll be relevant this year. He's not worth a late-round pick until or unless we hear better news.

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.
