Just another 'Bama back or is he going to light it up in the NFL?

Nice spot with no real competition! I think Yeldon is going to be successful here.

I hope so because I would like to see the Jags turn things around and become the cardiac cats we saw awhile back, but bama RBs have a lack of success in the NFL overall. I dont think he was wore down in bama though like some of the past RBs.

Fingers crossed

Perfect landing spot for him. A real chance he could be a 3 down back. Denard Robinson will still get some touches but Yeldon could be a workhorse here.

I am not a Denard fan at all. I guess he needs to play to compliment the RB position but gosh I am just not a fan

Already own Yeldon in a DEVY league. Happy with the landing spot so it is on him to prove that a Bama back can play in the NFL.

He had no holes to run through and he got crushed twice on the goal line. I think the TD was a gift. It looked like he didn't get in and he lost a fumble on the hit.

Yep, but after the called the TD there wasn't conclusive evidence to turn it back.

Tough to evaluate RB's in the preseason, they don't get a lot of touches and a lot times OL are playing out of position or young OL are getting reps. I have my doubts about him but I think he'll have a decent year.

Yeldon and Gordon looking like POS in the preseason and not getting much love. Coleman on the other hand could turn out to have the most productive year of the Rookie RB's....

Wasn't impressed with any of these overhyped RB's coming out of the draft this year. Yeldon and Gordon look like crap because this is preseason and they are learning but over time I see them becoming both usable starting rb's but nothing special.

What RB's were you impressed with this year? Your right so many players, at all positions, are over-hyped I almost solely drafted based on their situation/team vs. how they looked in college because they all look good in college.

I always get a kick out of the ironic juxtaposition of fantasy owners viewpoints... there are many who were still holding out hope for someone like TRich who is past the point of warranting any such hope, but on the other hand you have some who are either stamping rookies as studs or busts after fairly limited snaps in their first exposure to the NFL!

Quote :
Rookie RB T.J. Yeldon is listed as the starter on the Jaguars' Week 1 depth chart.
This is not a surprise after Yeldon dominated touches early in the third preseason game, but there had been rumblings Denard Robinson could open the season as the starter. While that is not true, it will be important to watch how big a role Robinson plays against the Panthers. Yeldon is a low-end RB2 play against Carolina.

Rapoport linked Miller, Ivory and Martin to Jacksonville.

General manager Dave Caldwell has a ton of money to throw around and could look to add a running mate to T.J. Yeldon. While the team believes Yeldon has the ability to be a three-down back -- don't be surprised to hear comparisons to Le'Veon Bell this offseason -- adding another back makes sense.

Uh oh. That'd be enough to worry me if I owned him.

As expected, they realize Yeldon is very average. $6 million a year!

Its really bad for both players (fantasy wise) but great for the team to have a RBBC with two average rb's.

What a mess, glad I didn't pick up any stock in Yeldon... I think he should still keep the lead role over Ivory, but it will be a RBBC so that isn't saying much, really hurts his fantasy value for 2016...

I think Yeldon is a more talented back than Ivory. The Jags have a shit ton of cap room and likely had to overpay to bring in another decent RB like Ivory because he is basically agreeing to a timeshare. $6 million is alot of money but I don't know that it guarantees Ivory anything, I think the Jags willingly overpaid just to get him to sign because they have the cap room to burn... I could totally be wrong, but that is my take on it right now...

Well, Powell was a very useful fantasy back behind Ivory last season and that's about Yeldon's ceiling now.

I feel for Yeldon though - thought he looked good last year.

I like the move for the Jags overall. Too many injuries with RBs and this is solid insurance for the team.

I am not shying away from owning either Ivory or Yeldon because one will be "golden" when the other misses time due to injury. Imagine what you could buy them for with the perceived value going down for both players. It is better sometimes to own an obvious RBBC with only 2 Rbs than to get in a mess like Detroit had with Bell, Riddick, Abdullah, Zenner (had he not been injured) This is a nightmare......owning a RB of RBBC of 2 is a breeze.

Seriously very few RBs are not in a RBBC sitch.......this one doesnt scare me.

I think Yeldon owners need to be a little surprised and disappointed by this signing. Even though the Jags have a ton of $ to spend, not sure they are dumb enough to pay $6M for a backup. Should be interesting to see this one play out.

I was never truly sold on Yeldon but I think that this makes for a potential good buying opportunity.  If I can get him for a late 1st/early 2nd and get something like a 2nd or 3rd back in the deal I'll roll the dice.  The question is whether there is someone willing to let him go at that price.

Man, if I had Yeldon I would kill to give him to you for a low 1st or early 2nd.

Pretty much follows the sentiment...

Quote :
Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said Thursday T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory "will probably split carries" in 2016.
The Jags gave Ivory a five-year, $32 million deal, so he's assured a big role in the offense. Last year's coaching staff didn't trust Yeldon in short-yardage and goal-line situations, areas in which they likely envision more-powerful Ivory contributing the most. On open-field possessions, Ivory and Yeldon could conceivably rotate series equally, hurting both of their fantasy outlooks' in the process. Ivory will be the better bet for touchdowns. Yeldon has superior versatility and could finish with more touches, but neither seems likely to handle more than 12-15 per game.

Ughh, a split rotation and losing goal line work to Ivory pretty much kills Yeldon's fantasy value for 2016... or at least until Ivory gets hurt, which is almost a given...

One thing to consider is that Jacksonville was 30th in rush attempts last season. With an improved defense, I am assuming that # rises pretty significantly. Definitely still a hit to Yeldon's stock, but I agree with Russ, I see it as a buy low opportunity.

Depends what you consider a 'buy-low'... Owners that spent 1st round picks last season on him are not going to be very excited about trading him for 4th or 5th round picks this year. They may as well hold onto him for that. If I could get a high 2nd rounder I would consider it, but any lower and he is a hold, I think Yeldon owners would pretty much agree with this, so he won't be widely available as a buy-low unless you can find the weakest and jumpiest Yeldon owners out there...

4th/5th would be stealing... I would gladly give a 2nd for Yeldon and not think twice. Those 2nd round backs are all committee backs anyway. I'd prefer Yeldon over any of them easily.
