2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 2018 seventh-round selection was forced into action during Week 12 of his rookie campaign thanks to injuries to Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler. He ended up recording 190 rushing yards, 116 receiving yards and two touchdowns during a four-game stretch, which also included his lone start. This offseason, the Chargers didn't add any notable options to their running back depth chart, but they do have some turmoil in the form of Gordon's contract holdout. Jackson and Ekeler are getting the first-team snaps at training camp, potentially headed for a committee in September if Gordon can't work things out with the team. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, $1.71 million contract with the Chargers in September of 2018.

Jackson (calf) is officially inactive for Monday's game against Kansas City, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
It will be the seventh game missed in the past eight for Jackson, who just can't seem to shake the calf issue. In his stead, duties at running back shift to Melvin Gordon, Austin Ekeler and Troymaine Pope.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Jackson was a wrecking ball during his four-year collegiate career with Northwestern, eventually finishing as the university's all-time leading rusher with 5,440 yards. That production was thanks in part to an uncharacteristically high workload, but the added wear and tear shouldn't mean much in the immediate future given he figures to merely be a rotational option for Melvin Gordon. Not necessarily known as a receiving threat, Jackson will likely cede snaps to last year's standout rookie running back, Austin Ekeler, but should Gordon suffer an injury, it wouldn't be a surprise for Jackson to see the majority of the carries.
