Justin Jackson will have more than 100 all-purpose yards
The Chargers’ backfield has been a slight timeshare between Austin Ekeler, Justin Jackson, and Joshua Kelley. Especially in their last game against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chargers rushed for 196 yards instead of the Chief’s 86 yards.
Justin Jackson may be the starting running back on Sunday, and it’s all dependent on the status of Ekeler as he tries to come off the COVID-19/reserve list. Jackson is just as good of an athlete as Ekeler is, but being behind him on the depth chart will make many people forget about you.
Jackson will be catching six passes for 47 yards and a touchdown, meanwhile rushing for 87 yards on 14 carries. It’s most likely going to end up in a Chargers’ blowout of the Texans, and Jackson will do his part to ensure that happens.
Final score: Chargers 41, Houston 21.
