Chargers RB Joshua Kelley rushed for 28 yards on nine carries and added five receptions for 31 receiving yards in the Chargers' Week 9 loss to the Raiders.
Fantasy managers who own Kelley were probably thinking he'd be unleashed once Justin Jackson left the game in the Chargers' first series. However, that was not the case. Enter Kalen Ballage - that's right, the guy who was recently cut from the Jets and one of the worst backs in the NFL for the Dolphins last season. Kelley still mustered 28 yards on the ground and 31 yards through the air, but he was out carried and outgained by Ballage. Kelley is still worth owning in all leagues, but temper expectations as Ballage may have crept ahead of Kelley on the depth chart. The Chargers take on the Dolphins in Week 10.
