If Melvin Gordon is on the field, Jackson will have zero value outside of a darkhorse handcuff. He can be quickly released if that scenario plays out. With that said, the Gordon holdout threat is legitimate and if it happens, Jackson may overtake Ekeler as the primary back and could be a superstar in this offense if given the opportunity.Burkhead has been unable to stay on the field the last two seasons for New England but while he is healthy, he has produced as a strong RB3 thanks to his receiving and goal-line production. That shouldn't change this year with the receiver corps being virtually non-existent.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Has a direct path to significant playing time, but I expect him to be on the lesser half of the split with Ekeler while Gordon is holding out.Will need an injury to be productive on a weekly basis but if there are injuries ahead of him he will be an automatic add off the wire. He is worth the last round pick in a super deep draft.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Gordon has scored 10, 8, and 10 TDs over the past three seasons. If MelGo holds out, it seems likely that Jackson will earn goal-line carries over Ekeler. However, with a limited receiving upside, he can end up being a more TD-dependent play than Ekeler. Regardless, he's a nice value pick that likely won't go to waste in any scenario considering Gordon's injury history if he does return. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's the backup to Melvin Gordon as far as we're concerned, though his upside would be limited with Austin Ekeler having a firm hold on the receiving duties. Even with Gordon in the lineup, Ekeler averages in-between 8-12 touches, and that number would only rise if Jackson were called upon. He's a handcuff in a very good offense, but one who'd be in a timeshare if called upon, limiting him to low-end RB2 potentialIt wasn't a great year for Burkhead in 2018, but after losing Rob Gronkowski and Chris Hogan, there are some targets available in the Patriots offense. Keep in mind that during his 18 games with the Patriots, he's received 10-plus touches seven times, so he can deliver value in a pinch. He's not the worst player to keep on the end of your bench
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I'd be very surprised if the Chargers refuse to pay Melvin Gordon. They're set up for a Super Bowl run this season, and while the RB position doesn't matter all that much, it would seriously damage their chance this season. However, reports are that the Chargers are standing their ground in contract talks, so it's becoming more and more likely that Gordon won't play for the Chargers this season. If that's the case then Jackson needs to be a late round target. While his end of season numbers don't look all that impressive, Jackson had a solid rookie season. He proved to be a reliable pass catcher, and did well in his role as a change of pace back. Ideally, the Chargers would have Ekeler get the majority of the carries, with Jackson spelling him for 8-10 carries and a few targets per game. That sort of volume is a steal this late in drafts. Again, I'll always be on team RB's don't matter. But the Chargers would be making a mistake if they don't pay Gordon.
