Jaguars plan to use Denard Robinson as kick returner and change-of-pace back

ESPN - [Full Article]

Mike DiRocco predicts that T.J. Yeldon will start for the Jaguars at running back.

I originally had Denard Robinson here, but general manager David Caldwell said he's going to work as a kick returner in 2015. He fits more as a change-of-pace back, anyway. So the job goes to the second-round pick from Alabama. The Jaguars like his patience, running style and anticipation.

Fantasy Impact: 

Toby Gerhart is also in the mix, but he's rumored to be slated for more of a fullback/H-back role for the team in 2015. As a team, the Jaguars averaged a healthy 4.5 YPC last season, which was 9th in the league. Unfortunately, they were last in the league in points scored, so rushing touchdowns may be tough to come by. The entire offense needs to take a step forward for Yeldon to post solid fantasy RB2 numbers.
