News: 6 days agoJackson carried the ball four times for 21 yards and also caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.
Spin: Jackson still didn't see his first snaps until the second half, but at least the undrafted free agent out-snapped Larry Rountree albeit by a slim 16 to 10 margin. It appears as if Jackson is more trusted in come-from-behind situations, at least as a substitute for all-world pass catcher Austin Ekeler.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Jackson is entering his fourth year in the NFL having yet to play more than 16% of the Chargers' offensive snaps in a single season. The 2018 seventh-round pick has flashed at times (4.9 YPC and 2.0 YAC on 138 career carries) and has some decent pass-catching ability (6.1 YPT on 54 career targets), but he's yet to carve out a consistent role in the pros. The 26-year old-will, once again, battle for primary early-down complimentary duties behind Austin Ekeler in 2021, but he's unlikely to find his way to weekly flex consideration. Even if Ekeler misses time, Jackson will work in a committee and could struggle for RB2 production. Jackson is no more than a late-round flier.
