Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
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.
