Jaguars Beat: Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon could split carries 55/45

The Jaguars’ running back situation, chiefly how the carries will be divided between Ivory and T.J. Yeldon, is a frequent question. Most expect Ivory to be the starter and Yeldon a third-down back. But don’t be surprised if it ends being a more even split (55-45 range).

What will be interesting is if the Jaguars coaches take the Hot Hand Approach, giving Ivory and Yeldon equal first-half work and then leaning on one guy in the second half.

Fantasy Impact: 

We currently project a 53/47 split in carries between Ivory and Yeldon. Ivory is probably the better bet in standard formats, while Yeldon could end up with more points in PPR leagues.
