Jags RBs T.J. Yeldon, Chris Ivory still headed for workload split

Times-Union - [Full Article]

Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles will not finish as the team’s second-leading rusher this season.

Not if running backs Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon stay healthy.

The two are starting to form the enviable tandem Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell visualized.

Both had strong efforts for the second consecutive week, combining for 54 yards and a touchdown in three possessions against Tampa Bay on Saturday night at EverBank Field.

“The better they are, the better the passing game is going to be,” Bortles said. “Those two are going to be a heck of a duo. The offensive line did a really good job letting those guys run and making holes for them. The better those guys are, the more we’re going to be able to be successful with play-action.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The bad news about the Jags running situation is this looks like a 50-50 split, and the story confirmed that again. Obviously not great fantasy potential. We have Yeldon rated higher in both formats but in standard they are separated by just one spot since Ivory should get the goal line carries. Yeldon seems to be the back to own in PPR formats.
