Player Outlook

Ryquell Armstead could emerge as the primary backup to Leonard Fournette in Jacksonville, a good job given Fournette's past. Armstead is a bully of a runner, powering downhill through defenders with good speed. He can also block fairly well, but he's not elusive and doesn't offer a whole lot as a pass-catcher, limiting his value. If he can improve in those areas, he'll have an opportunity sooner or later to be worthy of a Fantasy roster space. You may see Armstead get taken late in seasonal leagues but that's not a good idea until we're sure of his spot on the depth chart. Until then, draft him late in long-term formats and with a third-rounder in rookie-only drafts.

Player News
  • Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Working on the side
    By RotoWire Staff

    Armstead (hamstring) got in some light work on the side in Thursday's practice, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports. It was reported Friday that Armstead is nursing a minor hamstring injury and was expected to miss the Jaguars' mandatory minicamp but be good to go for training camp in late July. The news of the rookie getting in some work on the side instead of resting completely bodes well for his recovery, but more information should surface closer to training camp.

  • Armstead has a minor hamstring injury, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. The rookie fifth-round pick is expected to miss mandatory minicamp next week but should be back for the start of training camp. The Jaguars have shaky depth behind lead back Leonard Fournette, with Armstead joining a group that otherwise consists of Alfred Blue, Benny Cunningham, Thomas Rawls and undrafted rookie Taj McGowan. Armstead averaged just 4.9 YPC at Temple and only caught 29 passes in four seasons, but he boosted his stock at the combine when he ran a 4.45 40-yard dash at 220 pounds.

  • Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Lands in Jacksonville
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Jaguars selected Armstead in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 140th overall. The uncertainty surrounding Leonard Fournette's long-term future in Jacksonville made the running back position a priority in the middle rounds for the Jaguars. Armstead fits the mold of a well-built and tough runner at 5-foot-11 and 220 pounds with surprising burst (4.45-second 40-yard dash). The Temple product is more talented than Alfred Blue and Benny Cunningham, so a No. 2 role behind Fournette in 2019 is not out of the question.
