Jackson isn't much different than Ekeler in skills. He's a flashier runner who is redundant in this offense and will be seeking a bigger role elsewhere in 2021. He could split time with Ekeler and earn significant production if rookie Joshua Kelley falters early. Otherwise, he'll need an Ekeler injury to produce to his potential. - Matt Waldman

Summary

If Jackson retains the Chargers' No. 2 role, he'll carry palpable fantasy upside. After all, Austin Ekeler was usually a flex option behind lead dog Melvin Gordon over the past three years. Jackson has flashed dynamism as a runner: last year, he picked up 9+ yards on 9 of his 29 rushes. But he's also been unable to stay healthy, missing 12 games over his first 2 seasons. As it stands, Jackson deserves a look later in drafts, but his grip on the job and speculative fantasy value are tenuous. (May 2)
