T.J. Yeldon on top of Jags RB depth chart

Jaguars.com - [Full Article]

T.J. Yeldon is the Jaguars’ starting running back.

That doesn’t qualify as a huge surprise, but it was perhaps the most notable “news” when the team released its Week 1 unofficial depth chart on Tuesday.

Yeldon, a rookie second-round selection from the University of Alabama, is listed as the starter ahead of veteran Denard Robinson, veteran Toby Gerhart, veteran Bernard Pierce and rookie Corey Grant.

Fantasy Impact: 

Yeldon, Robinson and Gerhart are all expected to play on offense in a heavy rotation, with Gerhart the short-yardage back, the story said. Yeldon and Robinson had been listed as co-starters throughout the preseason. We think Yeldon has some potential, but he may not see a lot of scoring chances if the Jags fall out of games. His success could also be tied to QB Blake Bortles improving over last year. If all goes right, we think he has top-20 potential this year.
