The Chargers are "still very high" on RB Justin Jackson, according to The Athletic's Daniel Popper. The 2018 7th-rounder has struggled staying healthy even in a limited role over the past 2 seasons but has averaged a strong 5.1 yards per carry. Popper doesn't expect the Chargers to add an early-round back later this month to replace Melvin Gordon. If that's the case, Jackson could be in for a sneaky-big role behind undersized Austin Ekeler, who hasn't topped 132 carries in an NFL season.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and spotted in a walking boot on Friday, so this might be a significant injury. Jackson, of course, was already set to drop off the fantasy radar with Melvin Gordon back. Jackson’s absence this weekend locks in Austin Ekeler as an every-down back — at least until the game gets out of hand. RB Troymaine Pope is next up on the depth chart. We’ll see if the Chargers call up RB Detrez Newsome from the practice squad.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with a calf. We'll see if he's able to practice tomorrow and then how he's listed on the final injury report. Jackson's absence would make RB Austin Ekeler an even more elite fantasy play vs. Miami.

Chargers HC Anthony Lynn told NFL Network's Michael Silver that he's "looking for big things" from Justin Jackson. Jackson has become a much bigger fantasy story with RB Melvin Gordon's holdout threat. As a 7th-round rookie last year, Jackson averaged 4.1 yards per carry on 50 attempts and 9.0 yards per catch on 15 grabs. In the 3 games Gordon missed and Austin Ekeler played in, Ekeler out-touched Jackson 52 to 21. But that split could shrink this season if Jackson takes a step forward. It'll be a situation to monitor, especially if Gordon's holdout extends deep into August.

The Chargers cut rookie RB Justin Jackson to make room for TE Antonio Gates. That only further solidifies Austin Ekeler as the #2 and handcuff to Melvin Gordon
