Justin Jackson performed well in a contributing role for the Chargers during the final seven weeks of the year. Despite his size, he was a high-workload runner at Northwestern for four consecutive years. He'll have an opportunity to push Austin Ekeler for a share of Ekeler's past role in the offense, perhaps a large share as a 1-2 punch with Melvin Gordon holding out.

Summary

Jackson boasts an impressive college profile and impressed in limited rookie time, posting 0.37 PPR points per snap. With so much uncertainty around Melvin Gordon's early-season status, Jackson has the look of a high-ceiling flier over a draft's final few rounds. If Gordon misses time for any reason, Jackson will pair with Austin Ekeler to absorb virtually all of the Chargers' high-impact touches. (July 25)
