Expert 
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
 Philip Rivers has heavily utilized running backs in the passing game for the entirety of his career. Nyheim Hines will fill the third-down role for Indianapolis and he has 107 catches over the past two seasons. The Colts likely won't be getting to third down too often as their offense should be efficient, and they won't be trailing in many games, but you can count on Frank Reich to find ways to get Hines involved.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
 The pass-catching specialist has brought in 107 receptions through his first two seasons in the league, and the Colts' coaching staff is reportedly planning to utilize his skillset as a receiver this season. The arrival of Jonathan Taylor crowds the backfield, but there's a good chance Hines still has a role on third down or in hurry-up situations, making him a viable late-round target in PPR formats.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
With Melvin Gordon having departed, Jackson is expected to begin 2020 behind Austin Ekeler on the Chargers' depth chart. Jackson averaged 7.9 yards on 18 carries over L.A.'s first three games of 2019 before a calf injury sidelined him until November. 
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
 The only scramble Philip Rivers has must be eggs, because it's not on the football field. His lack of mobility has annually led to a high target total to his running backs. Jonathan Taylor will be taking over the lead rusher role sooner rather than later and Marlon Mack is a sub-par receiving back, leaving Nyheim Hines as a late-round gem in drafts this season.
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.There are some who are pointing at Hines as the primary beneficiary to Philip Rivers' arrival in Indianapolis, but I'm not one of them. Did we forget that the Colts dealt with tons of injuries last year and Hines still wound up with just 96 touches on the year? This is still the same coaching staff who didn't put him on the field over a guy like Jonathan Williams. Now you add in Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman, and he's going to get a bigger role? Nah. Let someone else draft him.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
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.Hines once again finds himself in one of the most confusing backfields in all of football. There is Marlon Mack and 2nd-round rookie Jonathan Taylor to compete with which will not be an easy task. On the plus side, his new QB, Philip Rivers, loves throwing to his RB's. If RIvers and Hines build a connection early, Hines could be a major steal in PPR formats.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.Hines is a fantastic receiver out of the backfield, but with both Marlon Mack and Jonathan Taylor ahead of him on the depth chart, he's unlikely to see many carries on the ground. This means he could be a valuable FLEX option in Full PPR leagues, but he's going to lose production in any other format.
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.After the high of Philip Rivers signing with the Colts, Nyheim Hines has crumbled back to earth with the Jonathan Taylor signing. Taylor is a good pass catcher and will certainly chip into the receptions for Hines and surely reduce his carries too. He goes from a PPR flex option to no more than a speculative gamble/bench fodder.
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. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Gordon is gone, and only a fourth-rounder added to replace him. Coach Lynn already professed he loved Jackson as his pure runner so he can move Ekeler all over. He also did say he loved Josh Kelley (rookie) so this will be a wait and see before I truly send Jackson soaringWas set to be a huge riser w/ Philip Rivers, who peppers his RBs in the passing game... but J.Taylor may hinder this, esp if he pushes Mack to the 3rd-down RB role
Kevin Wheeler

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). @DaltonGuruFF
