Jaguars RB Devine Ozigbo returned to practice Wednesday after suffering a hamstring injury late in training camp.
The news is notable as James Robinson has seized control of the Jacksonville backfield in recent weeks. If Ozigbo is healthy enough to play this weekend, it remains to be seen what kind of role he will have for the Jaguars. Ozigbo is an unproven commodity so Robinson shareholders shouldn't worry too much yet, but the addition of a new member to the backfield is always concerning in fantasy.
JAX RB Devine Ozigbo - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 1 – Devine Ozigbo vs. Indianapolis Colts
With Ryquell Armstead out, look for the Jaguars to go with a shared backfield approach between Devin Ozigbo and James Robinson in the opener. During his rookie year, Ozigbo had just nine carries for 27 yards, but will split carries with Robinson on the early downs. Chris Thompson is inked in as the receiving back and may end up seeing the bulk of the playing time if the Jaguars fall behind early. It’s advised Ozigbo remain on your bench.
