He had his chance and likely blew it. Kelley acted as the early-down back for the Chargers last year, but wound up averaging more than 4.0 yards per carry just four times all season, including seven games averaging 3.1 or less yards per carry. Neither Justin Jackson nor Austin Ekeler had issues running behind the line, as both of them tallied 4.6 yards per carry. The Chargers also have a new coaching staff and drafted Larry Rountree in the 2021 draft, which could make Kelley expendable, or pushed down the depth chart.

Joshua Kelley (foot) inactive for Week 14

Chargers' RB Joshua Kelley (foot) is inactive and will not play in Sunday's Week 14 contest against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Kelley was dealing with a foot issue throughout the week and was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Look for Austin Ekeler, Justin Jackson and Kalen Ballage to lead the Chargers' backfield Week 14. Kelley is mainly a stash in dynasty leagues only.
