From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 24): Yeldon re-asserted himself as the #2 back in Jacksonville and had a solid game even though the Jaguars offense didn't. Leonard Fournette is no sure to return for Week 4, which would make Yeldon a low RB2/Strong flex against the Jets.

General News (Mon Sep 24): is considered day-to-day, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 3 vs TEN (7 / 44 / 0 rush, 7 / 6 / 46 / 0 rec)

Playing through an ankle injury. You could tell he was playing through pain, but looked good enough as a runner - even behind an offensive line missing two starters. He was noticeably slow releasing and cutting in his routes early, but seemed to get more comfortable as the game went along. He got the offense out from shadow of their goalpost after a Jeremy Parnell false start put them at 1st and 15 from their own 9. He made a catch and run in the flat for 13 yards. Afterwards, he failed the conversion on 3rd and 1 on an inside run from 21 personnel where the backside pursuit stoned him at the LOS.

2018 Week 2 vs NE (10 / 58 / 0 rush, 5 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)

Despite the Jaguars having the lead with 7 minutes into the game and never looking back, Yeldon didn't receive a ton of volume - just 12 (mostly efficient) touches on the day. He did very well getting to the perimeter on shotgun runs and remains extremely reliable in pass protection. He did rotate with Corey Grant, who did excellent in the pass game. The Jaguars did the right thing by staying aggressive throughout the game - against lesser opponents (like the Giants last week) they will be more content with giving their backs the load with a lead.

2018 Week 1 vs NYG (14 / 51 / 0 rush, 7 / 3 / 18 / 1 rec)

Yeldon mixed in sporadically early in the game and took over lead back duties once Fournette went out with an injured hamstring. His first attempted touch of the game came on a pass attempt where Yeldon was split out as the weakside slot receiver in an empty formation. He won his route (a quick Out) against the linebacker, but bobbled the catch with an opportunity to catch-and-run for additional yardage. He made a big time conversion on a 3rd and 5 checkdown where he caught the ball behind the LOS and got upfield quickly through traffic. Yeldon had an impressive series of runs towards the end of the second half, including a 15 yard scamper featuring multiple broken tackles where he got the ball to the one yard line. On the following play, he scored a receiving touchdown after carrying out a play action fake and leaking to the flat. His ability as a receiver has always been there, but his strength and quickness have noticeably improved over the last two seasons. He did have another drop on an easy checkdown with under 5:00 left in the 4th that stopped the clock and set up a 3rd and 10, eventually leading the drive to a punt. Had just 4 yards on three carries when running out the clock under 2 minutes.
