ESPN - [Full Article]

The Jacksonville Jaguars had one of the NFL's worst red zone offenses in 2014. They're not much better this year, and on Sunday it cost them a chance to beat the San Diego Chargers and earn their first three-game winning streak in two years.

Maybe things would have been different if the Jaguars had at least given the ball to their best running back a couple of times.

The Jaguars (4-7) scored a touchdown once in four trips to the red zone at EverBank Field and running back T.J. Yeldon never got a sniff. The Jaguars had 11 offensive snaps in the red zone and the rookie from Alabama -- the team's leading rusher -- didn't touch the ball once. Not a carry or a reception.

Fantasy Impact: 

This was a concern drafting Yeldon this summer. We knew he'd likely get a bulk of the workload but touchdown production was a potential drawback. The story went on to say Yeldon has touched the ball only eight times in the Jaguars' last 51 red zone snaps over the last five games: twice against Tennessee, twice against Baltimore and four times against Buffalo. It can't be a coincidence the Jaguars have scored five touchdowns on 18 red zone trips in that span.
