Summary

T.J. Yeldon benefited in his role on the team with the addition of Fournette last year. As far as volume goes, of course Fournette ate into that but as far as effeciency goes it was a major plus for Yeldon. He only rushed the ball 49 times compared to 182 and 130 times in his first two seasons but he did a lot more with his opportunities averaging 5.2 yards a carry. (May 22)

Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon the 'clear-cut' No. 2 back (Tue Jul 10, 12:51 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is 'currently the team's best blocker and receiver out of the backfield' and the 'clear-cut No.2 back' at the moment, according to Mike Kaye of First Coast News.

Our View: Yeldon's ceiling is largely about opportunity at this point, with Leonard Fournette in front of him. But we could see him emerge as a decent third down back who, while not reliable, could fill in as an occasional flex option. If you aren't using him as a Fournette handcuff, don't take him before fairly late in the draft, but he is worth keeping an eye on.

Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon making strides (Sun Jul 8, 11:29 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is improving as a runner, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. 'You can see more explosion start to come from him,' Hackett said. 'Just his ability to pass protect and be able to catch the ball from the backfield.'

Our View: Yeldon had less carries but was more effective with what he got, averaging a 5.2 yards per carry average, up from 4.6 and 3.1 the previous two years. Do keep in mind, however, that he carried the ball less than 50 times, which makes it easier for the occasionally long run to move the needle on his average. Aside from Week 7, he never cracked 50 yards on the ground or combined for more than 70 beyond one time in Week 16. Yeldon appears to be finding his footing as a solid backup but nothing beyond that and as a handcuff he's not going to have much value. His ADP currently sits at 63 for running backs, and we wouldn't go higher than that, especially if you don't own Leonard Fournette.
