Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon down to 'a better 225' in an effort to increase his YPC
To help increase his yards-per-carry average of 4.1, Jaguars T.J. Yeldon spent the off-season training with Alabama strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran while finishing his degree.
“I’m at 225; it’s a better 225,” Yeldon said. “I’m still going to try and lose five more pounds before camp. I feel like I’ve gotten a lot stronger to hold off the bigger guys [on defense].”
Prior to the Chris Ivory signing, Yeldon was an intriguing middle round pick thanks to a large projected workload, but the duo is expected to split carries with Ivory getting most of the goal line work. Yeldon figures to be the primary pass-catching back, so his value is a bit higher in PPR formats.
