Chargers' Justin Jackson: Ranks third in backfield usage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson played 13 of the Chargers' 71 offensive snaps and finished with one carry for four yards and three receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's 41-28 divisional-round loss to the Patriots.

Jackson trailed Melvin Gordon (35) and Austin Ekeler (25) in terms of offensive snaps but tied Gordon for the lead among the trio in total yardage. That wasn't a particularly noteworthy accomplishment on a day in which the Patriots' 35-7 halftime advantage forced the Chargers to abandon the run early, resulting in fewer touches than normal for Gordon. With both Gordon and Ekeler under contract through next season, Jackson will be locked in as the clear No. 3 option on the depth chart.

Chargers' Justin Jackson: Active in passing game Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson played 21 of the Chargers' 63 offensive snaps (33 percent) and finished with seven receptions for 47 yards on 10 targets and one carry for minus-1 yard Saturday in a 22-10 to the Ravens.

After handling 19 touches (16 carries, three receptions) while starting in the Week 15 win over the Chiefs while both Melvin Gordon (knee) and Austin Ekeler (neck/concussion) were sidelined, Jackson dropped to the No. 2 role Saturday with Gordon returning to action. Though Gordon garnered the overwhelming share of carries, Jackson actually exceeded his output in the passing game, a somewhat surprising development given Gordon's prowess in that area this season. It's possible the Chargers wanted to ease up on Gordon's responsibilities coming off a three-game absence, so Jackson could settle into a more muted role Week 17 in Denver, especially if Ekeler is also available. With the AFC West title and home-field advantage still up for grabs, the Chargers aren't expected to rest any of their key contributors.

Chargers' Justin Jackson: Headed for reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is likely to serve as the Chargers' No. 2 back Saturday against the Ravens with Melvin Gordon (knee) returning from a three-game absence and Austin Ekeler (neck/concussion) listed as doubtful, ESPN.com reports.

When the Los Angeles backfield is at full strength, Jackson has served as the third-string option behind Gordon and Ekeler, but the rookie seventh-round pick moved up two spots in the pecking order during the Week 15 win over the Chiefs when the top two on the depth chart were sidelined. Jackson supplied 16 carries for 58 yards and three receptions for 27 yards in the starting role, but he should see his usage dwindle significantly with Gordon not expected to face any limitations in his return to action. Gordon has averaged 15.3 carries and six targets per game through 10 appearances.

Chargers' Justin Jackson: Totals 85 yards and scores
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson carried the ball 16 times for 58 yards and a touchdown, and also caught three of his four targets for 27 yards in Thursday's 29-28 come-from-behind win over the Chiefs.

Fantasy owners can't be too disappointed with 85 total yards and a touchdown, but the rookie running back could, and quite possibly should have scored on two other occasions, most notably on an under thrown wheel route during the Chargers' final possession. While 3.6 yards per carry doesn't seem fantastic, Jackson displayed a promising amount of explosiveness, often times falling forward for a handful of additional yards. With an extra couple of days of rest, Melvin Gordon (knee) and Austin Ekeler (neck/concussion) figure to be close to returning to the field in Week 16, thus ending Jackson's brief, yet entertaining run atop the depth chart.

Chargers' Justin Jackson: Added work on tap with Gordon out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Melvin Gordon (knee) inactive, Jackson is in line to lead the Chargers' backfield in Thursday night's game against the Chiefs.

In addition to Gordon being out, Austin Ekeler (neck/concussion) is sidelined, so Jackson is in a decent spot to put forth a fantasy-worthy effort in Week 15. Detrez Newsome and Troymaine Pope are on hand to work in reserve roles Thursday.
