Fantasy Football analysis: Chargers RB Joshua Kelley
Kelley rushed for 49 yards and a touchdown on 10 attempts to go along with 33 receiving yards, catching both targets that went his way in a 30-28 win over the Cleveland Browns. Austin Ekeler is clearly the top running back, but Kelley out-carried Sony Michel 10-1 as the team’s second-best option in the backfield.

Kelley is nothing more than a top-40 running back option behind Ekeler, but he could have a ton of fantasy value if Ekeler has to miss any time with an injury.
