T.J. Yeldon Fantasy Football News 2019

The Bills added Florida Atlantic RB Devin Singletary in the 3rd round. The 5’8, 203-pounder disappointed with an ugly 8th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine. But he was a tackle-breaking machine at Florida Atlantic, ranking 3rd in this draft class in Pro Football Focus’ 2018 Elusive Rating. Singletary checks the production box, too, racking up 4,287 yards and 66 TDs on 6.0 yards per carry over the past 3 years. He added another 397 yards on 51 catches. There’s plenty of long-term opportunity for Singletary in a Buffalo backfield with old guys LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore, plus free-agent addition T.J. Yeldon.

The Bills have reached a 2-year deal with RB T.J. Yeldon, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That puts Yeldon in a backfield with soon-to-be-36 Frank Gore and soon-to-be-31 LeSean McCoy, who is coming off the most inefficient rushing season of his career. Yeldon caught 30+ passes in each of his 4 seasons with the Jaguars, averaging 3.4 per game over his time there. He stands a shot at a decent receiving role there, but it's also a tough situation for touch volume. Yeldon's no more than a late-round flier/handcuff in fantasy football drafts.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) is inactive for today’s finale against the Texans. RB Carlos Hyde (knee) is active and will join T.J. Yeldon and David Williams in the backfield. It's a situation to try to avoid in fantasy lineups. Yeldon is the best bet if you’re desperate.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) is listed as doubtful for Week 17. He didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday and won’t play vs. Houston this weekend. RB Carlos Hyde (knee) is listed as questionable, so Jacksonville might be down to RBs T.J. Yeldon and David Williams. We’ll get the inactives by noon ET on Sunday, but this is a situation to try to avoid against the Texans’ elite run defense.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette sat out Thursday's practice with foot and ankle issues after putting in a limited workout Wednesday. He put in full workouts all last week while being listed with the foot and hadn't appeared on the injury report at all since Week 10 before that. Fournette's looking iffy for Sunday's game at Houston -- and at the very least will be a high-risk fantasy option, especially against 1 of the league's toughest run defenses. We'll see about his status after Friday's practice.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Dolphins. So it's Leonard Fournette, David Williams and Carlos Hyde in the backfield. Fournette is the only fantasy option and is a risk/reward RB2 after last week's quiet 2nd half.

Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is inactive for today's game against the Redskins. Expect a heavy dose of RB Leonard Fournette, with RB T.J. Yeldon in his usual change-of-pace role.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette's appeal of his 1-game suspension has been denied. He's out for Sunday's game against the Colts. After Fournette was booted from last week's game, Carlos Hyde carried 4 times, while T.J. Yeldon tallied 1 carry and 3 targets. Expect similar usage this weekend, with Hyde leading in carries and Yeldon playing in passing situations.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. He’s tentatively expected back after the Week 9 bye. RB Carlos Hyde will make his Jags debut this weekend and figures to share ball-carrying duties with T.J. Yeldon. Yeldon will continue to dominate pass-catching work, though, and is the better fantasy play.

Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. He didn’t have quite enough time to get settled in after the trade to Jacksonville Friday. T.J. Yeldon will serve as the Jags’ lead back, with Jamaal Charles as the #2.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and James Palmer both hear that Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde might play against the Texans today -- just 2 days after being traded to Jacksonville. Per Palmer, Hyde arrived in Jacksonville around midnight on Friday and participated in Saturday's walkthrough. If he's active, he'd have a "small package of plays." Hyde obviously shouldn't be in Week 7 fantasy lineups. And his presence would be just a small ding to RB T.J. Yeldon's outlook.

The Browns are trading RB Carlos Hyde to Jacksonville in exchange for a mid-round draft pick, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. This doesn't bode well for RB Leonard Fournette's return from his hamstring trouble. Hyde joins T.J. Yeldon in the Jaguars backfield for now, although it's unclear if Hyde will be active for this weekend's game against the Texans. Meanwhile, Nick Chubb takes over as the primary ball-carrier in Cleveland. The rookie has flashed in limited chances, averaging 10.8 yards on 16 carries. He immediately jumps into the RB2 mix.

UPDATE: The Browns are receiving a 5th-round pick.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. We’ll see if he can return for Week 8, but Jacksonville might hold him out through the Week 9 bye. T.J. Yeldon gets another game as the Jags’ lead back and is a solid RB2 play, despite a matchup with a tough Houston run defense.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (foot, ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's on track to play against the Texans this weekend.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle, foot) did not practice on Wednesday. This is the 4th straight Wednesday he's been limited or held out, and he's yet to miss a game. Yeldon should be available for this weekend's tilt with the Texans, but we'll continue to keep an eye on him.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't practice on Wednesday. HC Doug Marrone said last week that Fournette had "a chance" to return for Sunday's game against the Texans -- but doing nothing on Wednesday has that looking unlikely. T.J. Yeldon figures to get another game as Jacksonville's lead back.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone confirmed that RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't play against the Cowboys this weekend. It's the 2nd week in a row that Fournette has been ruled out on Wednesday, which is usually a sign that he's nowhere close to playing. T.J. Yeldon will again serve as Jacksonville's feature back this Sunday.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) won't play against the Cowboys this weekend, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This is more confirmation than new information. Fournette missed 2 games with the hammy injury the first time around and could be sidelined longer this time. It's possible the Jags hold him out through the Week 9 bye. With RB Corey Grant (Lisfranc) on IR, T.J. Yeldon will see feature-back usage in Week 6.

Jaguars RB Corey Grant suffered a Lisfranc injury that will "likely" end his season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Grant was playing a change-of-pace role behind T.J. Yeldon with Leonard Fournette sidelined with his hamstring injury. Fournette is expected to miss at least another game, leaving only Brandon Wilds behind Yeldon. Yeldon should see feature-back usage against the Cowboys in Week 6.
