Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: Gets 10 carries as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon rushed 10 times for 58 yards and caught two of five targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 31-20 win over New England.

Yeldon was Jacksonville's primary running back with Leonard Fournette (hamstring) sidelined, and he led the team in carries and rushing yards. He wasn't called on to do all that much, however, as quarterback Blake Bortles stole the show with 377 yards and four touchdowns through the air. Yeldon's known as a strong receiver out of the backfield, but eight of his teammates also managed at least 13 receiving yards in this one. While Fournette will probably be back for next week's tilt against the Titans, Yeldon would once again dominate touches out of the backfield if the starter can't suit up.

Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: Busy in passing game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon took 10 carries for 39 yards and caught five of six targets for 73 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings.

Leonard Fournette had five touches before Yeldon got involved, but the fourth-year pro finished the first half with six carries and five targets, leading the Jaguars in both rushing and receiving yards. Yeldon also got some work in the third quarter after Blake Bortles left the game, whereas Corey Grant got his lone carry in the fourth quarter and only played four snaps on offense. Yeldon moved a step closer to locking down the No. 2 running back job, with his prowess on passing downs making him a fitting complement to Fournette. Grant is probably the more explosive runner, but he hasn't shown it this preseason with only 10 yards on nine carries.

Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: Facing competition from Grant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Corey Grant likely will push Yeldon for backup work, Mike Kaye of First Coast News reports.

With Chris Ivory out of the picture, Yeldon is a clear favorite to play in obvious passing situations, but that doesn't necessarily mean he would get the majority of carries if Leonard Fournette were to miss time with an injury. The 2015 second-round pick has averaged 4.0 yards on 361 career carries, typically struggling when tasked with a large workload. Grant's career stat line (6.1 YPC) is distorted by gains of 58 and 56 yards from fake punts, but he's also done well with his limited opportunities on offense, including three catches for 59 yards in last season's conference championship game. It won't come as any surprise if Grant gets the nod ahead of Yeldon when the Jaguars need to rest Fournette on early downs.

Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: No longer on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon (illness) is not listed on the Jaguars' injury report in advance of Sunday's playoff game against the Steelers.

Yeldon, who missed the team's wild-card win over the Bills this past weekend, is healthy enough to suit up Sunday. If he does, he'd re-enter the backup mix behind Leonard Fournette, who logged 21 carries for 57 yards and caught three passes for 21 yards against Buffalo. With Fournette clearly the team's lead back, Yeldon's fantasy utility is restricted to deeper PPR formats these days.

Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon (illness) is inactive for Sunday's playoff game against the Bills.

With Yeldon unable to rally in time for the contest, Chris Ivory is in line to serve as Leonard Fournette's top backup Sunday, with Corey Grant also on hand.
