Jags Beat: Denard Robinson could be team's RB1 Week 17

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson says he should be able to play on Sunday against Indianapolis.

That’s a heap of good news for the Jaguars, who can’t seem to keep running backs healthy this season.

The team put T.J. Yeldon (ankle) on injured reserve on Monday. Chris Ivory has missed four games because of various injuries and he might not be able to play this week against the Colts because of a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Things are much better if Robinson is able to play after missing three games because of an ankle injury. If Robinson would miss Week 17, it means the Jaguars would have to rely on second-year player Corey Grant, first-year player Bronson Hill, and newly signed Daryl Richardson, who has 169 carries in his career but only two since 2013.

Jags place RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) on IR

Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon will end his second NFL season in the same place that he ended his first one.

Yeldon has been placed on injured reserve as a result of an ankle injury. He spent the last three weeks of his rookie year on injured reserve with a knee issue.

Yeldon played in all 15 games this year, but his production was down across the board from his rookie year. Yeldon ran 130 times for 465 yards and one touchdown, which is lower than he managed as a rookie in all three metrics along with a drop from 4.1 yards per carry to 3.6 yards this season.

The Jags filled Yeldon’s roster spot by claiming running back Daryl Richardson off of waivers from the Steelers.

Related players: Chris Ivory

Fantasy Impact:

The arrival of Chris Ivory accounts for the drop in Yeldon’s workload, but it’s probably fair to say that Yeldon fell short of where the Jaguars expected the 2015 second-round pick to be in his second season with the team. Both backs should be back in 2017 and Jacksonville would welcome better results from each of them.

Jag RBs Chris Ivory, T.J. Yeldon leave Week 16

ABC News - [Full Article]

Jag RBs T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory left Week 16.

Yeldon tweaked his ankle on his second carry of the game. At first, the Jaguars were optimistic about his return, listing him as probable, but they downgraded him to questionable later in the first quarter before ruling him out after halftime. Ivory saw his workload increase with Yeldon out, but he got hurt in the second half, too (hamstring), and did not return.

Related players: Denard Robinson, Corey Grant, Bronson Hill

Fantasy Impact:

Denard Robinson, Corey Grant and Bronson Hill are next up on the depth chart if neither Ivory or Yeldon are able to play in Week 17.

Friday, December 9, 2016, 6:41pm

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 14. The Jaguars may push Ivory to play with Denard Robinson out for Week 14. If Ivory remains out, then T.J. Yeldon looks like a very Sneaky Start against the Vikings.

Friday, December 9, 2016, 6:41pm

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) took full practice reps all week. Yeldon was removed from the injury report so he may be approaching full health. If Chris Ivory is out, Yeldon would see a big workload, but he should still serve as the lead back if Ivory is active.

Friday, December 2, 2016, 6:13pm

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 13. With Ivory out, T.J. Yeldon (who’s dealing with an ankle injury) and Denard Robinson will likely split the backfield duties against the Broncos. Last week, with Yeldon coming off of a week with no practice, Robinson out-touched him 13-to-7. This is a murky situation that is best avoided, but Robinson does have some spot start appeal if Yeldon is limited.
