One of Justin Jackson or Joshua Kelley is going to be the starting RB alongside Austin Ekeler in this Chargers backfield. It's a mystery as to who it will be right now, but one of them is going to be valuable for fantasy football. If you can guess right, you may have a FLEX-type RB option that you got in one of the last rounds of your draft. At their current ADPs, both Jackson and Kelley are worth taking shots on.

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.
