Jaguars Beat: T.J. Yeldon will 'win the starting job' and become the team's 'feature back'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jaguars beat writer Mike DiRocco: "T.J. Yeldon will win the starting job and become the Jaguars' feature back. Denard Robinson will still have a significant role in the offense and Toby Gerhart will get work, too, but the Jaguars are counting on Yeldon to revitalize a run game that hasn't finished higher than 21st in the NFL since the 2011 season."

Fantasy Impact: 

Toby Gerhart struggled with injuries last season and may play more of a fullback/H-back position this season. Denard Robinson was solid in stretches, but apparently the Jaguars don’t view him as an every-down, feature-type back. Yeldon’s upside will depend heavily on the growth of QB Blake Bortles and the entire Jacksonville offense, which suddenly has a young and talented receiving corps (Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee, Allen Hurns) and a weapon at tight end in Julius Thomas.
