Tank Bigsby News
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Tank Bigsby did not receive any opportunities in Week 2, recording 0 total yards in the loss vs. Kansas City. It was odd usage for the rookie running back who saw 21% of snaps in Week 1 and was given seven carries, one of which he turned into a touchdown. The game was a competitive grind fest throughout, so game script could be the culprit here with the Jags opting to leave their more trusted back Etienne in the game for longer stretches. It's worth noting that third-string running back D'Ernest Johnson only logged one rush, so Bigsby presumably still has the RB2 position locked up, but it's definitely a situation worth monitoring.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Tank Bigsby will look to hit paydirt once again in Week 2, this time taking on the Kansas City Chiefs. The rookie running back was used sparingly in Week 1 at Indy, receiving seven carries and only gaining 13 yards. Bigsby was also only targeted once in the passing game.

"Jacksonville coach Doug Pederson said he doesn't want to overload Bigsby early in the season." Michael DiRocco of ESPN wrote. "But it's likely his role will expand as the season progresses." Bigsby is an attractive bench stash for fantasy football. If Travis Etienne has to miss any time, the rookie would operate as the lead back in one of the league's most exciting offenses.
|RB||Travis Etienne Jr.|
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Tank Bigsby was selected in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft. His day-two draft capital suggests he could have a real role as a rookie behind Travis Etienne. Since the Jaguars' offense led by Trevor Lawrence is expected to be one of the best units in the NFL, Bigsby is an intriguing player in best ball formats and in traditional leagues as at least a handcuff to Etienne. In 2022, Etienne rushed 10 times inside the five-yard line, converting just two of...
