Free Agent Focus

Week 15 Free Agent Focus

By Draft Sharks Staff 10:12pm EST 12/9/18


Justin Jackson, RB, Chargers

Blind-bid recommendation: 75-100%

Jackson totaled just 35 yards on 9 opportunities in Sunday's win over the Bengals. But a neck injury to Austin Ekeler could elevate his role for Week 15.

Ekeler, who had dealt with stingers in recent weeks, reportedly aggravated the issue against Cincinnati. Further testing this week will determine the severity, but the quick turnaround to Thursday night's clash with the Chiefs will challenge Ekeler's availability to rebound -- even if the injury's not serious.

Jackson remained available in about 57% of ESPN leagues Sunday. He'll be worth adding in plenty more this week if Ekeler's trending toward missing the game. We'll also have to watch Melvin Gordon's status. There's reportedly a chance his injured knee will be ready for a Thursday night return.
