While it is no guarantee Jackson will have anywhere near enough touches to be fantasy relevant, or even that he is the surefire #2 to Austin Ekeler, there is a ton of upside here and if you are using a late-round pick on anything but raw upside, you are doing it wrong. Chargers' head coach, Anthony Lynn, has said that this Chargers backfield will be another split workload like last year. It seems as though Jackson, who is extraordinarily talented, mind you, has a chance to fill the Melvin Gordon role from the get-go.

Justin Jackson has a short leash as team's No. 2 back?

Daniel Popper of The Athletic writes that Justin Jackson's "leash won't be long" as the Chargers' No. 2 back this year.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson dealt with injuries in 2019 but posted a highly efficient 6.9 yards per carry. Reports from Chargers camp have been pretty positive in regards to Jackson's role with the club this year, but fourth-round rookie Joshua Kelley will be pushing him for playing time. Jackson will begin the season as Austin Ekeler's primary backup, however.
