Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson rushed for 59 yards on seven carries against the Detroit Lions in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Jackson has rushed for at least 50 yards in each of the first two games and will continue to have a role in the running game. He could be a flex option in some leagues next week.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson will have 'a ton' of reps available to him if Melvin Gordon follows through on his holdout, according to head coach Anthony Lynn, who told NFL Network's Michael Silver that he is 'looking for big things' from Jackson.
Huddle Up: It's probably no coincidence this report is coming out when it is, as coaches have to preach "next man up" and front office personnel must do their best to create leverage in contract talks with potential holdouts on the brink of training camp. Still, Jackson did show he was at least a very capable committee partner with Austin Ekeler last season when Gordon was hurt. While Ekeler would be the favorite for more touches and a better fantasy option for however long Gordon sits, Jackson would be a strong flex option.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson lost a yard on his only carry and caught seven of his 10 targets for 47 yards in a 22-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16.
Huddle Up: With Melvin Gordon back on the field, Jackson was limited to third-down duties. His small window to be a viable fantasy starter appears to have expired.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson finished with 16 carries for 58 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 27 yards in a 29-28 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Jackson didn't exactly gash the Chiefs, but if Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler remains sidelined moving forward, he will have RB2 potential based on volume alone.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson is likely to see more playing time with RBs Melvin Gordon (knee) and Austin Ekeler (concussion) unlikely to play Thursday, Dec. 13, in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Jackson would figure to be the leading man in the backfield with Detrez Newsome slotting in behind him. It's a solid matchup, and Jackson has upside to be an RB2 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson rushed seven times for 12 yards and caught two passes for 23 yards in a 26-21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Jackson was unable to back up his strong showing from the previous week, but with Austin Ekeler suffering an undisclosed injury late against the Bengals and Melvin Gordon dealing with his own issues, Jackson could find himself with a big role against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 15. Jackson would become a must-start option if he ends up as the starter.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson didn't surprise his teammates with his performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 13, according to QB Philip Rivers.
Huddle Up: Jackson is averaging 8.0 yards per carry on 15 carries over the last two games, and with Melvin Gordon already ruled out for Week 14, he is definitely worth deploying as a flex option against a struggling Cincinnati Bengals defense.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson ran eight times for 63 yards and a score against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Jackson averaged 7.9 yards per carry Sunday night, and that was coming off Week 12 where he posted 8.1 YPC. He even added 19 yards as a receiver. If Melvin Gordon sits in Week 14, Jackson could be an enticing one-week play against the toothless Cincinnati Bengals.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson rushed seven times for 57 yards in a 45-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Jackson broke some big runs after Melvin Gordon left with a knee injury. Austin Ekeler would be the biggest beneficiary if Gordon's injury turns out to be serious, but Jackson would also be worth picking up in case he handles a decent amount of the early-down work.

The Los Angeles Chargers selected Northwestern RB Justin Jackson with the 251st overall selection (Round 7) in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Jackson was productive and durable, and he is the leading rusher in Northwestern history. He also became just the ninth player in NCAA history to rush for 1,000 or more yards in four different seasons. He has a chance to challenge for a spot as a backup, but his hands need some work.
