I love Joshua Kelley this week. The Chiefs have the 31st-ranked rushing defense, and Kelley is the perfect player to exploit their vulnerabilities. The Chargers gave him 12 carries last week, too, so I expect them to trust him in Week 2. Although Kelley lacks Ekeler's passing-down utility, his combination of speed, size, and strength make him a high-risk, touchdown-dependent flex option against the Chiefs. I'd be willing to roll the dice on him in deeper leagues. 
Mike Tagliere

It was not what Ekeler owners had hoped for in his first game alongside Tyrod Taylor. Sure, he got 19 carries that amounted to 84 yards, but he saw just one target. That's an issue, especially when you see that Kelley got the lone carry inside the five-yard-line. After the game, Anthony Lynn said it's a priority to get Ekeler more involved. Expect a big bounce-back this week against the Chiefs, who allowed the most receiving yards to running backs last year. They allowed a massive 59.4 yards per game through the air to running backs while no other team allowed more than 55.7 per game. It's not just that, either. They allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per opportunity to running backs, so touches mean everything. And guys, let's not pretend that 19 carries for 84 yards isn't impressive, as that was the eighth-most among running backs in Week 1. Start Ekeler as an RB1 and expect big results. Kelley is a bit tougher to place this week, as he looked good on his 12 carries last week, but that was a neutral gamescript where they ran the ball 33 times with the running backs. Against the Chiefs, that won't happen. Opponents averaged just 22.3 carries per game against them in 2019. Still, if they get into a goal-line situation, it seems Kelley will be the guy. Seeing that Justin Jackson is dealing with an injury, we should still get 8-10 carries out of Kelley. Consider him a touchdown-dependent RB4.It seemed like he was getting close to playing last week but was ultimately scratched. He did get in limited practices on both Thursday and Friday, so I'd assume he was close to play. The Jets signed Pierre Desir to be their top perimeter cornerback this offseason, but that went south quickly, as he allowed two touchdowns before halftime in his coverage, and that got him a quick seat on the bench. Seriously, he was benched for Nate Hairston at halftime. The other perimeter cornerback (where Aiyuk figures to play 80 percent of his snaps) is Blessuan Austin, who has seen exactly 39 career targets in his coverage. He was a sixth-round pick for the Jets in last year's draft who was forced into starting. He hasn't been horrible, though he's also not someone you need to avoid. Still, it's Aiyuk's first game and he may be on a snap count. He's a boom-or-bust WR5-type option.
