Chargers 'still very high on' Justin Jackson

The Los Angeles Chargers are "still very high on" running back Justin Jackson, writes Daniel Popper of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Popper says the Chargers "like that one-two punch" of Austin Ekeler and Jackson. A 2018 seventh-round pick, Jackson has averaged a solid 5.5 yards per touch, but he's only had one double-digit workload and been limited to 20-of-32 games due to injuries. If Jackson can stay healthy, he's in line for an expanded role next season.

Jackson averaged 3.8 FanDuel points (RB84) and 31.7 yards from scrimmage with no touchdowns in 2019. His 6.9 yards per carry was tops among the 85 running backs to record at least 25 carries. Jackson also led that group in Rushing Net Expected Points per play (0.25) and success rate (65.5 percent).
