|Rookie running back Joshua Kelley is likely the third back on the team heading into the season so his ADP will almost certainly be behind fellow running back Justin Jackson. Kelley's upside could make him a significantly better fantasy value, though, especially in dynasty formats.
Kelley isn't particularly big, but he is quick, having run a sub-4.5 forty yard dash, and he possesses better-than-average strength as well. In addition, he showcased an ability to catch passes in college with 27 receptions in his 2018 season at UCLA. Kelley isn't likely to be an elite back at any point, but he could potentially be a fairly decent replacement for Melvin Gordon in the Los Angeles offense. He costs practically nothing in fantasy drafts and could be someone to look at late in deep drafts as there's a real chance that he ends up being the primary back in the scenario that Ekeler misses time.
| Justin Jackson ruled Out for Week 10|

|#Chargers game status report vs. Dolphins
OUT: DE Joey Bosa (concussion), RB Justin Jackson (knee)
QUESTIONABLE: RT Bryan Bulaga (back), RB Troymaine Pope (neck), RG Trai Turner (groin) (Daniel Popper on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Jackson got injured on the first play in Week 9 and will now miss Week 10 against the Dolphins with a knee injury. The running back duties are expected to be a committee of Kalen Ballage, Troymaine Pope and Joshua Kelley. It's difficult to trust any of them in your fantasy lineup.
| Austin Ekeler's return imminent?|
Sidelined since Week 4 with severe hamstring strain

FFToday's Take: Ekeler posted a video of himself running near full speed Thursday. He obviously has not returned to practice yet, but it appears as if he believes he is not far away from doing so. In his absence, the Chargers have turned to an impossible-to-predict committee in which Justin Jackson, Joshua Kelley, Troymaine Pope and Kalen Ballage have taken turns leading the backfield. When Ekeler returns, it's almost certain he'll be given enough work to return to RB1 status.
