Jacksonville Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon is a healthy scratch in Week 16 against the Dolphins. Rookie wide receiver D.J. Chark (quadriceps) and kicker Josh Lambo (groin) also remain out. Last week Carlos Hyde was a healthy scratch, but this week it's Yeldon. Hyde and rookie David Williams will back up Leonard Fournette, but neither of them have standalone fantasy value in this dysfunctional offense that is playing out the string.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back TJ Yeldon was one of the few key receiving targets that struggled in Week 14 as the Jags looked to the passing attack to mount a comeback. This performance should make any owners that were relying on Yeldon worrisome, as he typically gets the bulk of his usage as a receiving back. The Redskins do not host a scary defensive unit, but Yeldon is still a risky play in most leagues for Week 15.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon played just 13 snaps in Thursday's loss to the Titans, catching his only target for 10 yards and adding a seven-yard run to his totals as well. Yeldon had been targeted at least three times in every game before this one, and had been shaping into a solid PPR play in deeper leagues, but Thursday was a tough blow to Yeldon's fantasy prospects if this is indicative of what it will look like when both Cody Kessler and Leonard Fournette are on the field for the Jags.
