Who is Justin Jackson

Justin Jackson was drafted in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL draft, which had some incredible running back talent including: Saquan Barkley, Nick Chubb, Rashaad Penny, and even undrafted running back talents such as Phillip Lindsay and Darrel Williams. While he commanded most snaps in college, his NFL career has not been the same.

Through his first three years, his Next Gen Stats are uninspiring, specifically his yards created metric, ranking above 50th once in his first three years of his career. There have not been many opportunities to start for the Chargers, but when the opportunity has presented itself, he has made the most of it. In his career he has had two games where he had 70% snap share or higher. The first game was against the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2018 season where he had 85 total yards and a touchdown. The other opportunity was against the Houston Texans in the 2021 season where he erupted for 162 total yards, and two total touchdowns, where he earned the title of finishing the week with the No. 1 fantasy ranking among running backs with 34 fantasy points that week.

A small light of hope with Jackson is that Los Angeles allowed him to contribute as a pass catching back. When starting these games, his routes run was in the double digits for his starts, and he had only two drops over the year. His contract with the Chargers has expired, and he will be rolling into free agency looking to compliment an NFL backfield, but it will be highly unlikely we see him take full control of a backfield and command most of the snaps in 2022. His ADP will remain relatively low even if he does change teams.
