Joshua Kelley’s role increases: The Chargers backfield went from a three-man rotation to a two-man rotation against the Raiders.

  • Kelley had missed a month and a half of football during October and November while on injured reserve.
  • He returned last week and split playing time with rookie Isaiah Spiller as Austin Ekeler’s backup.
  • Kelley made this a two-back committee, playing the majority of third-down snaps, as well as a good amount on early downs and short yardage.
  • This likely won’t be enough playing time to give Kelley standalone value this season, but it makes him the clear handcuff in Los Angeles.

The Raiders' backup running back situation is unclear: Josh Jacobs was limited all week with a calf injury, leading some to speculate about who should be picked up if Jacobs misses time.

  • Jacobs played basically the same role as usual. However, he has typically played two-minute drills, and Ameer Abdullah took those snaps this week.
  • Zamir White played the second-most snaps on early downs this week. Abdullah had the second-most last week, and Brandon Bolden the week before that.
  • Backups saw the most snaps on early downs in Week 8, where White and Abdullah tied with five.
  • We could very well see a rotation of running backs on early downs, with no clear back seeing a majority of carries if Jacobs misses time this season.

Table Notes

Snaps include plays called back due to penalties, including offensive holding or defensive pass interference. The other three stats have these plays removed.

Targets may differ from official NFL sources. The most likely discrepancy would be from a clear thrown-away pass, where the NFL may give the target to the nearest receiver, while this data will not.

Carries are only on designed plays. Quarterback scrambles won’t count for the total number of carries in the game.
