2019 Fantasy Outlook
Newsome is in line to battle for a depth role with Justin Jackson, who put together a solid four-game stint near the end of the 2018 season. Newsome has some positive tape of his own, namely a solid preseason in which the undrafted free agent carried the ball 42 times for 150 yards and two touchdowns, but a stellar performance this summer will be needed in order to usurp Jackson on the depth chart. Melvin Gordon's summer holdout does add a bit of intrigue to the situation. Read Past Outlooks

Newsome joined the Chargers' practice squad Sunday, Eric D. Williams of reports.
Troymaine Pope ultimately locked himself into the No. 3 role behind Justin Jackson and Austin Ekeler, but it's possible Newsome could find his way onto the roster should Melvin Gordon eventually get traded.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Newsome is one of three rookie running backs competing for the No. 3 job on the depth chart behind Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler. The all-time touchdown leader at Western Carolina, Newsome ran for 1,000-plus yards in three straight collegiate seasons while displaying above average hands for his position – both pluses for a Chargers offense that has lost veteran RBs Danny Woodhead and Branden Oliver in consecutive seasons. Given Gordon’s injury history and Ekeler’s abilities as a scat back, there’s a realistic possibility the winner of the aforementioned job battle could see playing time right out of the gate, but not enough to warrant fantasy consideration.
