  Bills | T.J. Yeldon fourth in RB rotation    Tue Jul 30, 02:53 AM

Buffalo Bills RB T.J. Yeldon is currently fourth in the team's running back rotation, where he is competing with rookie RB Devin Singletary for snaps with the second unit while RBs Frank Gore and LeSean McCoy see first-team work.

Footballguys view: Yeldon is on the bubble right now and probably not on the good side of it. He seems to be unable to get traction despite being a former second-round pick who showed versatility with Jacksonville.

  Bills | Buffalo could cut veteran RB    Fri Jul 19, 02:55 AM

Rival teams believe the Buffalo Bills could release someone from the group of RBs LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon, according to MMQB's Albert Breer, who notes that McCoy is set to earn far more money than Gore or Yeldon.

Footballguys view: McCoy is in the final year of his contract and his cap number is just a bit over $9 million with only $2.6 million in dead money. The Bills could go with cheaper options if they feel it's time to move on from McCoy. In addition to Gore and Yeldon, the Bills also have rookie Devin Singletary to turn to. Singletary was a third-round pick out of FAU this year and there's a bit of McCoy (but more Charlie Garner) to his game. We'll watch this position in training camp and the preseason.

  Bills | T.J. Yeldon dealing with groin injury    Tue May 21, 12:04 PM

Buffalo Bills RB T.J. Yeldon (groin) missed OTA drills Tuesday, May 21, due to a groin injury.

Footballguys view: Yeldon is getting a fresh start with the Bills this year. As a runner, Yeldon may not do much. He's best used as a receiver out of the backfield, catching 171 passes with the Jaguars over the last four years. He better impress in practice because the Bills have a jam-packed backfield with LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore and rookie Devin Singletary.

  Bills | LeSean McCoy a candidate to be dealt?    Sat May 4, 02:36 AM

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is someone that could be traded before this year's deadline, in the opinion of ESPN's Bill Barnwell, who notes the team signed free-agent RBs Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon and also drafted RB Devin Singletary in Round 3.

Footballguys view: Watch this situation closely to see if anything comes to fruition. Bills GM Brandon Beane said McCoy is still their featured back after the draft. The team could save $6.4 million if they cut McCoy before Week 1.

  Bills | T.J. Yeldon signs with Bills    Mon Apr 22, 08:24 AM

Free-agent RB T.J. Yeldon (Jaguars) signed a two-year deal with the Buffalo Bills Monday, April 22. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Yet another veteran addition for the Bills here. Yeldon is behind LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore on the depth chart in Buffalo, but he could carve himself out a role. He's somewhat disappointed as a runner in the pros, but Yeldon could catch 40 or so passes for the Bills out of the backfield.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon caught seven passes for 49 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 13. He also rushed for 16 yards on eight carries during the game.

  Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon involved in passing game    Sun Oct 28, 01:35 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon caught seven passes for 83 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8. He also rushed for seven yards on two carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Yeldon remained heavily involved as a receiver in catchup mode even though he took a backseat to Carlos Hyde in the running game. He's still end of the bench depth in PPR leagues, but possibly behind Hyde to get carries if Leonard Fournette suffers another injury.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon caught five passes for 40 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 7. He also rushed for 28 yards on 12 carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Yeldon made a terrific sprawling play on his touchdown catch but his window of value is closing with Carlos Hyde likely to suit up next week. He's not an essential hold despite his recent contributions.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars have lost three tight ends already this year. They should run a lot of three wide receiver sets against the Texans this week.

  Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon's role unlikely to change for now    Tue Oct 9, 08:18 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is expected to remain 'the guy' while Leonard Fournette (hamstring) recovers from his hamstring injury despite the addition of Jamaal Charles on Tuesday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: Charles is not the same back he used to be. The Jaguars could use him as a change-of-pace back whenever Yeldon needs a breather but we're not expecting him to have a huge role.

Footballguys view: We'll watch Yeldon's practice report tomorrow, but he should be in line for a big workload against the Chiefs on Sunday. Even if the Jaguars fall behind, Yeldon can play a big role in the pass-heavy version of the Jaguars offense too.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon rushed for 44 yards on seven carries against the Tennessee Titans in Week 3. He also caught six passes for 46 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Yeldon got the bulk of the work with Leonard Fournette out and put up respectable numbers. Fournette should be ready to return next week, but Yeldon should remain on rosters with Fournette's injury history and possibility of his hamstring issue popping up again.
