Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Jaguars are just 28th against fantasy backs, Jackson should have flex value coming off his bye week. He is dealing with a knee issue, but he is also expected to play this week. 
Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
I love the Chargers backfield this week. They have an excellent matchup against the run-funnel Jaguars, a team that's giving up 27.7 points per game to the position. That said, Justin Jackson is the clear leader in this backfield. Joshua Kelley will have a role behind him, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him get red-zone work, but Jackson is the better back to start. Jackson is a mid-range RB2 for me, while Kelley is more of a low-end RB3/flex. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jackson seemed to take over this backfield against New Orleans, but we can't be sure that that was just specific to that game. With that being said, it's worth rolling the dice on Jackson's projected workload in this matchup against the Jaguars. The Jags are currently the 5th easiest matchup for opposing RBs and Jackson should bring a safe floor with his work in the receiving game. You can fire up Jackson as a solid RB2 with upside in this matchup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
In a game that was close throughout, Jackson out-touched Kelley 20 to 12. He also outperformed him, racking up 94 total yards against a tough Saints defense. Did he earn the starting job? He should've considering Kelley has now averaged 2.8 or less yards per carry in three of their last four games and offers minimal upside in the receiving department. Still, it's likely to be a timeshare. There should be plenty of carries to go around this week, as the Jaguars are a team that's faced a lot of volume. Their opponents have gone with a run play on 48.7 percent of snaps, which is the highest mark in football. That's led to a massive 31.8 running back touches per game against them, which is also the highest number in the league. Despite the fact that the Jaguars have played just six games, there have already been eight running backs who've amassed 15 touches against them, including three of them with 25 or more. It's not just a lot of touches, either. The efficiency has been rock-solid, as the 0.93 PPR points per opportunity they've allowed is the ninth-highest mark in football. In a game that was close throughout against the Saints, Jackson played 42 snaps to Kelley's 25, so we must assume he's the lead back here. Jackson should be able to be plugged in as a low-end RB2 with upside, while Kelley should still reach double-digit touches and gets into the low-end RB3/flex conversation.
