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.

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 potential.
