CBS' Jonathan Jones came away from Chargers camp believing Justin Jackson has a "stranglehold" on the #2 RB job. That jibes with insider Gilbert Manzano's take that a healthy Jackson should win the #2 job. Durability has been an issue for Jackson, but he's been efficient when on the field and easily out-played RB Joshua Kelley last year. We'll continue to monitor this situation -- and whether any Chargers RB behind Austin Ekeler will be a fantasy factor.
Lions RB Justin Jackson (hip) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bears. Craig Reynolds is active as Detroit’s #3 RB, but Jackson’s absence could be a slight boost for RB D’Andre Swift.
Lions RB Justin Jackson (illness) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He should continue to serve as the #3 RB behind Jamaal Williams and D’Andre Swift.
Lions RB Justin Jackson has been downgraded to questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Jets due to an illness. He's averaged 4.3 carries and 2.0 targets over the past 6 games, so his absence would open up some opportunity for RBs Jamaal Williams and D'Andre Swift.
The Lions signed RB Justin Jackson. The 26-year-old has flashed over 4 NFL seasons, averaging 5.0 yards per carry and 7.8 yards per catch. But he's reached double-digit carries only 6 times and had trouble staying healthy. It's also notable that Jackson had to wait until August 1 to land a job. We'll see if he can push Jamaal Williams for Detroit's #2 RB job. Jackson's arrival shouldn't impact RB D'Andre Swift's role.
