Summary

2016 was suppose to be the year that the Jaguars running game started to trend upward with T.J. Yeldon looking to take the step forward from his impressive rookie season and addition of Chris Ivory in free agency. Both backs failed to deliver with Yeldon only rushing for 465 yards and Ivory 439 with a combined 4 rushing touchdowns. Yeldon offers a little extra with his catching ability as he caught 50 passes for 312 yards and a touchdown. With the high draft pick of Fournette, it is likely he will easily win the starting job moving forward and Yeldon will likely continue to have a big roll on passing plays and 3rd downs. (May 22)

Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon sitting out (Sat Aug 19, 04:02 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) is not participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 19.

Our View: Yeldon is trying to just earn a spot somewhere on the depth chart at this point in his career. He's currently third at the RB position behind rookie Leonard Fournette and veteran Chris Ivory. Yeldon's fantasy stock in dynasty leagues is incredibly low with his play and career outlook.
