Jaguars not afraid to feed the ball to RB T.J. Yeldon

PFT - [Full Article]

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon got 28 touches in last Sunday’s victory over the Dolphins, a number buoyed by the loss of Denard Robinson to a knee injury but one that Jags offensive coordinator Greg Olson is fine with in the weeks to come.

“We thought as the game went on, he became more productive,” Olson said, via “We’ll wait and see how the game [against New England] plays out. I think every game plays out differently. We talked before [the Miami game] with Gus [Bradley] and the offensive staff. Gus asked what we were thinking. We said if he got 20 carries or more, we think that would be a good day. We felt like, yeah, he’s ready for that right now.”

One key to feeding Yeldon will be the scoreboard, because the Jags aren’t going to be run-heavy if they have to come from behind as they did in the opening weekend against the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact: 

Robinson is likely out, but Toby Gerhart should be available to spell Yeldon. As the article notes, Yeldon's carries will depend on how competitive the game is, but he's also able to help in the passing game.
