Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. He missed practice Thursday and Friday with an illness. We'll see about his game status. Yeldon's obviously not a strong fantasy option but is in play for DFS because of the small slate.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Titans. That's excellent news for RB Leonard Fournette's pass-catching role. The rookie is a borderline RB1.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll make his 2017 debut against the Titans on Sunday. Yeldon isn’t a fantasy option, but we’re curious to see how much pass-catching work he steals from RB Leonard Fournette.

11:09am EDT 9/10/17

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. RB Corey Grant is active, along with Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory. We’re curious to see how much action the rookie gets on passing downs. He’s a mid-range RB2 in this tough matchup.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. For what it’s worth, the Florida Times-Union’s Ryan O’Halloran expects Yeldon to play. He’s not a fantasy option, but his absence would boost RB Leonard Fournette’s target projection.

The Jaguars nabbed LSU RB Leonard Fournette with the 4th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. Only 3 RBs have ever been selected higher. Fournette was a man amongst boys, even in the SEC. He racked up 3,830 rushing yards with 40 TDs over the past 3 seasons. And that was despite fighting through an ankle injury most of last year. He was at his best in 2015, when he ripped off 1,953 yards and 22 TDs on 300 totes. Fournette boasts a generational combination of size and speed, even drawing a Bo Jackson comp from 1 scout. He checked into the Combine at 6’0, 240 pounds and clocked a 4.51-second 40 time. It earned him the top Speed Score in this year’s RB class. The concerns? Fournette sometimes struggles with lateral movement on tape, registered a poor 28.5-inch vertical at the Combine and didn’t complete any of the agility drills in the pre-draft process. He also totaled just 41 catches across his 3 college seasons — and dropped 8 balls, according to Pro Football Focus. Fournette joins a crowded backfield in Jacksonville that also includes Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon, but consider Fournette the heavy favorite to lead the way in touches this season.

The Jaguars have named Doug Marrone their new HC. He served as interim HC for the final 2 weeks of this past season, leading Jacksonville to 1 of its 3 wins. Marrone's only other experience as an NFL HC came in Buffalo during the 2013 and 2014 campaigns. He compiled a 15-17 record with the Bills, with those squads finishing 19th and 26th, respectively, in total offense. The 2013 squad led the league in rushing attempts and ranked 2nd in rushing yards. RBs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller both topped 1,000 total yards that year. Marrone could bring a run-heavier attack to the Jaguars, who have ranked among the bottom 8 in run rate in 5 straight seasons. Marrone's biggest undertaking, though, will be fixing QB Blake Bortles.

The Jaguars have placed RB T.J. Yeldon on IR because of the ankle injury that knocked him out of Sunday's game against the Titans. That should help RB Chris Ivory's touch count for the season finale against the Colts. Ivory posted a 14-45-1 rushing line against Tennessee, adding 4-69 receiving on 6 targets. He'll hit Week 17 as a decent fantasy RB2.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is done for the day with an ankle injury. He carried just twice for 5 yards before exiting. Chris Ivory will operate as the lead back the rest of the afternoon.

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) put in a full practice on Friday and isn’t listed on the final injury report. We’re still betting on T.J. Yeldon leading the backfield in touches against the Texans this weekend, but Ivory’s return puts a significant dent in Yeldon’s floor and ceiling.

Jags RB T.J. Yeldon totaled 90 yards on 24 touches vs. the Vikings. He was used in a workhorse role with both Chris Ivory and Denard Robinson inactive. Ivory should return next week vs. Houston, making Yeldon a mere flex option.

11:43am EST 12/11/16

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Vikings. RB Denard Robinson (ankle) is also out, leaving T.J. Yeldon as Jacksonville’s feature back. He’s a borderline RB2 with a shot at 20 total touches.

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Vikings today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. RB Denard Robinson (ankle) has already been ruled out. Jacksonville promoted RB Bronson Hill from the practice squad, but RB T.J. Yeldon figures to dominate backfield touches. He put in 3 full practices this week, so the ankle issue that was previously bothering him shouldn't be an issue. Volume makes Yeldon a lower-end RB2.

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. HC Gus Bradley suggested earlier this week that Ivory will be a game-time decision. At less than 100% in a negative matchup, he shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups. The healthier T.J. Yeldon is a good bet to lead Jags RBs in touches. RB Denard Robinson (ankle) is out.

Jaguars RB Denard Robinson has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, HC Gus Bradley said Monday. That figures to cost Robinson multiple weeks, and possibly the rest of the season. RB Chris Ivory's status remains unclear with his hamstring injury. His absence would leave the backfield to T.J. Yeldon. He's been dealing with an ankle injury but racked up 17 touches in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

Jaguars RB Denard Robinson injured his ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Broncos and did not return. He was operating as the lead back before going down, turning 18 touches into 64 yards. RB T.J. Yeldon took over the rest of the way, finishing with 82 yards on 17 touches. RB Chris Ivory missed the game with a hamstring injury.

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) is out for this weekend’s game against the Broncos. RB T.J. Yeldon, meanwhile, will play through his ankle injury. But just how much work he’s able to handle will be a game-time decision, HC Gus Bradley said Friday. RB Denard Robinson might be the best bet for touches in Jacksonville’s backfield this week, but it’s a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory injured his hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Bills. He's officially questionable to return. RB T.J. Yeldon, a surprise active today with an ankle injury, is now Jacksonville's lead back.

11:28am EST 11/27/16

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Bills. It’s a surprise after he missed practice all week. Yeldon can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups, but his presence makes Chris Ivory a riskier play.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) a "long shot" to play against the Bills today. That was the expectation after he didn't practice all week. Yeldon's absence makes RB Chris Ivory a good bet for 15+ touches, with the potential for 20+.
