Summary

With T.J. Yeldon leaving via free agency, the Jaguars went out and signed Alfred Blue to be the guy behind Leonard Fournette. Blue has spent his five-year career in Houston before this signing and has always been a role player who can contribute here and there. Over 73 career games in Houston he averaged 33 rushing yards per game and had a total of 10 touchdowns over that span. (May 3)

Jaguars | Alfred Blue to miss preseason game (Sat Aug 17, 02:16 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars RB Alfred Blue (ankle) will not play in the third preseason game because of his ankle injury.

Our View: Keep an eye on this situation. Blue is behind the oft-injured Leonard Fournette and Jacksonville has to be ready if (when?) Fournette is banged up again. That could be Blue, but this ankle injury has opened the door for rookie Ryquell Armstead to emerge as a handcuff option in deeper leagues.
