Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Rest of Season Rankings
Austin Ekeler Note

Ekeler suffered a Grade-2 hamstring injury and a hyperextended knee in Week 4 and has been placed on IR and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. It's a huge blow for the Chargers and, of course, Ekeler. He'll go on IR, where fantasy managers should obviously find a way to stash him.

Joshua Kelley Note

Kelley didn't get it done in his first shot after Austin Ekeler's injury. He played just 35% of the snaps and gained just 38 total yards against the Saints. The Chargers have a bye in Week 6 so fantasy managers will need to wait to see whether this was a one-off or a trend, but it will be difficult to trust Kelley going forward until we see both increased usage and better production.

Justin Jackson Note

Jackson shined in the first game without Austin Ekeler, totaling nearly 60% of the snaps and gaining 94 yards. He looked far more explosive than Joshua Kelley, and could be on the verge of taking hold of the Chargers backfield for the next several weeks. With Los Angeles on bye in Week 6, fantasy managers will need to wait to see whether this performance is sustainable, but Jackson should be added everywhere at the very least.
