ESPN's Adam Caplan on RB T.J. Yeldon:

Not only is Jaguars 2nd-round pick T.J. Yeldon expected to start, he could wind up being a three-down player.

Best hands of their RBs, I'm told. First time in many years their OL has depth, versatility.

Fantasy Impact: 

Yeldon should see plenty of touches, but the Jaguars' offense has been poor for some time, so he may not see the same number of scoring opportunities as some of the other running backs being drafted in the middle rounds. Denard Robinson had a very nice stretch for four weeks, but otherwise the Jacksonville running backs weren't much of a fantasy factor in 2014. The team did make an effort to improve the offensive line via free agency and the draft, so Yeldon has top 20 potential provided QB Blake Bortles shows progress from his disappointing rookie season.
