Jaguars could make RB T.J. Yeldon active on game day

Florida Football Insiders - [Full Article]

Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon couldn’t even make it onto the game day roster the first six games of the season. Now he may be in line to replace Chris Ivory as the backup to Leonard Fournette.

That’s what running for 122 yards and a touchdown will do for you. It’ll make your coaches rethink your role, which is what Jaguars coach Doug Marrone appears to be doing with Yeldon.

“I think it makes you look at things and say where are we with the running backs, what’s the situation, where are we on special teams?’’ Marrone said earlier this week.

“I’ve always tried to get T.J. up, but it’s a matter of that game-day roster number (because that) really limits you because you have to have X-amount of positions on (special) teams. That’s always been the struggle.’’

Fantasy Impact:

This is a situation to monitor since Fournette is currently sidelined with an ankle injury. He's expected back in Week 9, but has dealt with foot problems in the past so it's not out of the question that he misses another game.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 7. Fournette says that he expects to play, but a full week of DNPs are certainly alarming. If Fournette is active, he should be in fantasy lineups. If he’s out, Chris Ivory will be a great play against a very shaky Colts rush defense.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. We’re monitoring Fournette this week, but he should be able to play through the injury. Given the matchup, Chris Ivory is a Sneaky Start against the Colts.

Jags Beat: Team 'being careful' with RB Leonard Fournette's foot

Sunday, August 13, 2017, 12:49pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone says RB Leonard Fournette has a foot injury and they're "being careful with him."

Fournette did not practice Sunday.

Related Players: Chris Ivory, T.J. Yeldon

Fantasy Impact:

There were reports last season that Fournette has a chronic condition with his ankle. The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that Fournette's ankle injury, which caused him to miss five games in 2016, could need surgery and that made it an issue for teams looking to draft him. The foot was the reported issue today, but that's pretty darn close to the ankle. It's a situation to monitor moving forward for a RB we projected to have 300+ touches as a rookie.

Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (ankle) took limited practice reps all week. It looks like he’ll back up Chris Ivory.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 17. Ivory should lead the Jacksonville backs in touches with T.J. Yeldon on injured reserve.

Jags Beat: Denard Robinson could be team's RB1 Week 17

Tuesday, December 27, 2016, 5:15pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson says he should be able to play on Sunday against Indianapolis.

That’s a heap of good news for the Jaguars, who can’t seem to keep running backs healthy this season.

The team put T.J. Yeldon (ankle) on injured reserve on Monday. Chris Ivory has missed four games because of various injuries and he might not be able to play this week against the Colts because of a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Things are much better if Robinson is able to play after missing three games because of an ankle injury. If Robinson would miss Week 17, it means the Jaguars would have to rely on second-year player Corey Grant, first-year player Bronson Hill, and newly signed Daryl Richardson, who has 169 carries in his career but only two since 2013.

Jags place RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) on IR

Tuesday, December 27, 2016, 11:57am

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon will end his second NFL season in the same place that he ended his first one.

Yeldon has been placed on injured reserve as a result of an ankle injury. He spent the last three weeks of his rookie year on injured reserve with a knee issue.

Yeldon played in all 15 games this year, but his production was down across the board from his rookie year. Yeldon ran 130 times for 465 yards and one touchdown, which is lower than he managed as a rookie in all three metrics along with a drop from 4.1 yards per carry to 3.6 yards this season.

The Jags filled Yeldon’s roster spot by claiming running back Daryl Richardson off of waivers from the Steelers.

Related players: Chris Ivory

Fantasy Impact:

The arrival of Chris Ivory accounts for the drop in Yeldon’s workload, but it’s probably fair to say that Yeldon fell short of where the Jaguars expected the 2015 second-round pick to be in his second season with the team. Both backs should be back in 2017 and Jacksonville would welcome better results from each of them.

Jag RBs Chris Ivory, T.J. Yeldon leave Week 16

Sunday, December 25, 2016, 1:05pm

ABC News - [Full Article]

Jag RBs T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory left Week 16.

Yeldon tweaked his ankle on his second carry of the game. At first, the Jaguars were optimistic about his return, listing him as probable, but they downgraded him to questionable later in the first quarter before ruling him out after halftime. Ivory saw his workload increase with Yeldon out, but he got hurt in the second half, too (hamstring), and did not return.

Related players: Denard Robinson, Corey Grant, Bronson Hill

Fantasy Impact:

Denard Robinson, Corey Grant and Bronson Hill are next up on the depth chart if neither Ivory or Yeldon are able to play in Week 17.

Friday, December 16, 2016, 6:08pm

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Ivory will return this week and it will put a dent in T.J. Yeldon’s workload.

Thursday, December 15, 2016, 7:16pm

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Thursday. If Ivory returns, it will put a dent in T.J. Yeldon’s workload.
