2017

2016

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder with Yeldon’s rookie season. Given that he was 21 on opening day, a 4.1 YPC and 78-percent catch rate isn’t a bad return. But fantasy owners want to see more than three touchdowns from someone who touches the ball 218 times, even if a balky knee cost Yeldon the final three games. It's uncertain if Yeldon will be the primary back, but it might be more of a sharing situation anyway — physical Chris Ivory, late of the Jets, was brought in. You have to assume Ivory will get most of the short-yardage and goal-line work in 2016 — work that Yeldon struggled with last year. But perhaps this will help Yeldon stay fresh, both in the latter parts of games and into the deeper reaches of the season. The Ivory signing blocks much of Yeldon’s upside, but we’re still looking at a young player on an improving offense. And the Jags scored 35 of their 40 offensive TDs through the air last year — a ratio that’s unlikely to repeat. Even if Yeldon cedes the cheap scores to Ivory, he still has a good chance to improve last year’s end-zone count. Yeldon might not be an exciting 2016 pick, but there’s a little sneaky upside.

2015

Big things were expected from Yeldon at Alabama after he ran for more than 1,000 yards as a freshman backing up Eddie Lacy in 2012, but he never quite became a superstar, battling through nagging injuries and ball-security issues that his upright running style exacerbated. The Jaguars still saw enough in him to warrant a second-round selection in this year's draft, and Yeldon enters camp as the presumed starter ahead of third-year back Denard Robinson. Yeldon doesn't have Robinson's raw speed, but he has outstanding elusiveness and burst, allowing him to plunge through holes and get to the second level quickly. He also has good hands as a receiver, a facet of the game Robinson has struggled with, and that ability alone should ensure that Yeldon sees a majority of the backfield touches even if a committee develops. But despite possessing good size at 6-1, 226, Yeldon doesn't run with a lot of power or lower his pads to grind out extra yards, and Jacksonville's offseason additions to the offensive line and coaching staff seem more focused on helping Blake Bortles develop than on improving the ground attack.
