Jacksonville Jaguars 2016 Depth Chart Notes
The T.J. Yeldon experiment is on the back-burner at the moment, as former New York Jets back, Chris Ivory landed in Jacksonville. It seems this will push Yeldon to a third down back, so he will receive the occasional carry or two. Yeldon is just 22 years old, and rushed for a 4.1 yard per carry last season. He only scored two touchdowns, which was disappointing for fantasy owners everywhere. Jacksonville trailed quite a bit, so the second halves of games were somewhat irrelevant for Yeldon. Ivory rushed for 4.3 yards per carry last season, but did have seven touchdowns on the ground. Ivory was efficient in New York, and this Jacksonville offense has a chance to be much more versatile. With a likely improved defense, the passing game shouldn't be as relied upon, but it will still be the focal point. Ivory will be the back to keep an eye on week-to-week basis. Ivory was an efficient back against weaker opponents, and thrived even in average matchups. Despite the change of uniform, he should succeed again.
The WR3 spot is up for grabs between Rashad Greene and Marqise Lee. Greene has seen a lot of reps with the first team offense, lining up as the slot receiver, so it looks like he has a slight edge for the job. While it is a friendly passing game for wideouts, unfortunately both names are behind Allen Hurns, Allen Robinson, and Julius Thomas. They likely won't surface to much other than the occasional small slot man lines. They rank far behind those names to be in any consideration.
