Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (illness, questionable) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Week 18.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Leonard Fournette is locked into the lead role heading into his second season as a pro, but after Chris Ivory shuffled off to Buffalo, Yeldon is in line for an increased workload. Yeldon is a solid third-down back who possesses good pass-catching skills. As Bleacher Report reminded readers, Yeldon's 2017 stats were largely boosted by one performance against the Colts, when he rushed for 122 yards on nine carries, including a 58-yard touchdown run. Outside of that game, his stats fell in line with Fournette and Ivory in the 3.5 yard-per-carry range. Still, as a third-down back, Yeldon could have a role.

Fantasy Downside

Of course, Corey Grant is also worth watching here after the Jaguars unleashed the speedy rusher/return man during the first half of the AFC Championship Game. But Grant's playing time was fairly inconsistent during the regular season and playoffs.

Fantasy Downside

Ivory's departure could open the door to more work for Yeldon (and perhaps Grant), but nobody should be in a rush to secure his services. As things stand now, there are better receiving/satellite backs out there than Yeldon, whose stand-alone value seems minimal given the Jaguars' desire to lean heavily on Fournette. That said, Fournette could emerge as a viable handcuff should the worse happen for Fournette owners.
