The Jaguars have ruled out rookie RB T.J. Yeldon for Friday night's exhibition opener because of the sprained finger he suffered Saturday. “He’s doing good and everything and it wasn’t so much holding the ball as it was [pass] protection and how he’d be,” HC Gus Bradley told Jacksonville.com. “We can’t put him out there at this time if he’s not 100 percent.” Yeldon did practice this week with a non-contact jersey on, and this doesn't seem like a particularly worrisome situation going forward. The only other significant offensive player ruled out for the game is WR Marqise Lee (hamstring).
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 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 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 T.J. Yeldon (illness) is inactive for today's playoff game against the Bills. Yeldon wouldn't have been much of a fantasy option anyway, but he accounted for 12 targets, 8 catches and 9 carries over his past 2 games with Leonard Fournette in the lineup. More available touches can only help Fournette in an already strong matchup.
