Chargers RB Kalen Ballage leads RBs in touches

Chargers RB snaps with Justin Jackson exiting on first play yesterday:

Joshua Kelley 43-of-79, 14 touches
Kalen Ballage 31, 17 touches
Troymaine Pope (concussion) inactive.

Fantasy Impact: 

Ballage came from the practice squad to take over as the lead back this week after Jackson got hurt. While Kelley played more snaps, the team seemed to trust Ballage more, and the same could probably be said last week with Pope, too. It looks like the Bolts aren't ready to let Kelley take over just yet. Heading into next week, it seems safe to assume Ballage could have a nice fantasy role if Jackson and Pope remain out of action. It also seems to be bad news for those holding out hope for Kelley this season. But with the Chargers struggling record-wise, one would think the team eventually turns things over to Kelley.
