Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Kelley's continuing to see enough work in this backfield to be considered for fantasy football, but it's not amount to much production at all. Kelley's a mid-range RB3 that will need to find the end zone to finish much higher than that. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's clear that Jackson's injury last week affected his playing time, as he played 31 snaps while Kelley played 38 of them. The Chargers even mixed in Troymaine Pope for 12 snaps, which is something that doesn't happen when Jackson's 100 percent. Fortunately for Jackson, Kelley did nothing with his opportunity and averaged less than 2.9 yards per carry for the fourth time in his last five games. The matchup against the Broncos is not a good one for running backs, as they've allowed sub-4.0 yards per carry on the ground and just 1.20 PPR points per target to them. On the year, they've allowed just two touchdowns on 148 touches to running backs. All that amounts to just 0.67 PPR points per opportunity to running backs, which ranks second to only the 49ers. Because of the dominance against the run, teams have run the ball on just 39.2 percent of plays. Jackson and Kelley ran essentially the same number of routes last week, though Jackson turned in 43 yards while Kelley totaled 24 of them. This is clearly a timeshare but one that might be a bit more split if Jackson can practice in full at some point this week. If he does, Jackson should be the leader in this backfield, though the matchup and risk keep him in RB3 territory. Kelley is just a low-upside, low-end RB3/high-end RB4. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Denver is 3rd against fantasy running backs, Kelley is a low-upside RB3 on the road splitting carries with Justin Jackson.
