T.J. Yeldon has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Yeldon is usually a healthy inactive for Buffalo, but he is certainly good insurance for Devin Singletary and/or Zack Moss. The veteran turned 11 touches into 92 yards and a score in limited regular season action.
T.J. Yeldon has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
The Bills have announced that Yeldon has tested positive for the virus. He is obviously out for Monday night against the Patriots, and now we have to hope more players aren't in jeopardy of missing the Week 16 contest. Hopefully Yeldon is feeling better soon.
The Bills are signing T.J. Yeldon, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
It's a two-year deal, according to Schefter. Yeldon figures to slide in as the third running back for Buffalo this season, with LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore holding the top two spots on the team's depth chart. The versatility of Yeldon should help him get on the field a decent amount, particularly on third downs and passing situations; but he'll likely have limited fantasy value as long as McCoy and Gore remain on the field. This is probably a better real football more than it is one with a fantasy impact, as the Bills have one of the deepest running back groups in the league in an offense that's added a lot of pieces this offseason.
T.J. Yeldon is inactive for Week 16.
Yeldon appears to be a healthy scratch for Jacksonville. Hopefully you didn't have to trust him in your fantasy championship lineups, but be sure you don't have him starting in deeper leagues.
T.J. Yeldon handles four touches in Week 15 loss.
Yeldon rushed three times for six yards and caught a five-yard pass. The Alabama product was out-touched by David Williams (five carries for 32 yards), so his fantasy appeal is nearly evaporated heading into the fantasy championship. The Jaguars take on the Dolphins next Sunday.
T.J. Yeldon gets two touches in Week 14.
Yeldon carried once for seven yards and caught one pass for ten yards against the Titans. With Leonard Fournette back in the lineup, Yeldon is not a recommended fantasy option on an offense that's struggling to get much going.
T.J. Yeldon leads the Jaguars in Week 13 receiving.
Yeldon carried eight times for 16 yards and caught seven passes (on eight targets) for 49 yards, leading Jacksonville in targets, receptions, and receiving yards. Cody Kessler has no issue taking the check-down if that's what the defense gives him, so we'll see if Yeldon continues getting several targets per week with him under-center. Remember, workhorse Leonard Fournette was suspended for this game and returns on Thursday night.
T.J. Yeldon handles five touches in loss to the Bills.
Yeldon rushed three times for 16 yards, also adding two receptions (on four targets) for 17 yards. The impending free agent might see more action down the stretch if Jacksonville decides to scale back Leonard Fournette's workload in a lost season, but Yeldon won't be a recommended fantasy option next week against the Colts.
T.J. Yeldon handles seven touches in loss to Pittsburgh.
Yeldon rushed five times for 23 yards, also adding two receptions for nine yards. The Jaguars were unable to hold a 16-0 lead late in the third quarter, so they now sit at 3-7, which is notable because Yeldon might see extended run down the stretch if Leonard Fournette (30 touches in Week 11) has his role scaled back to stay healthy. For now, Yeldon is just a weak FLEX option in all formats heading into a matchup with the Bills.
T.J. Yeldon gets eight touches against the Colts.
Yeldon carried three times for 12 yards and caught five passes for 51 yards in the Jaguars' Week 10 loss. With Leonard Fournette back in the lineup, Yeldon is back to being more of just a PPR FLEX option in fantasy lineups.
T.J. Yeldon leads Jacksonville in receiving as they fall to 3-5.
Yeldon caught seven passes for 83 yards, also adding two carries for seven yards. The Jaguars went pass heavy with 41 attempts and just eight carries by the running backs, so Yeldon did well to come out of the game with some solid production, especially for PPR owners. The Alabama product has been great with Leonard Fournette (hamstring) out, but he's undoubtedly going to lose work coming off the bye when the 2017 first-round pick returns, limiting Yeldon to FLEX value.
T.J. Yeldon scores in Week 7.
Yeldon carried 12 times for 28 yards and added five receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown against the Texans. The score was a spectacular diving catch in the end zone for Jacksonville's only points of the game, but he also had a pass go off his hands (though it wasn't an easy catch) for an interception. New running back Carlos Hyde is expected to be active for the Jags moving forward, so Yeldon's workload is likely to decrease. Yeldon is more of just a PPR FLEX option moving forward.
T.J. Yeldon (foot/ankle) officially returned to practice today.
It was a limited participation for Yeldon, but that's been the course for him. With Leonard Fournette (hamstring) likely out again, expect Yeldon to lead Jacksonville's backfield against the Texans in Week 7. He's an RB2/FLEX option this week.
T.J. Yeldon (foot/ankle) is not expected to practice today.
It's only Wednesday, so this isn't a big concern. Yeldon has been on the injury report and missed practices often this season, so there's not much concern about his status for Sunday against the Texans.
T.J. Yeldon gets 11 touches in Jaguars' loss.
Yeldon carried eight times for 41 yards and added three receptions (on five targets) for 29 yards against the Cowboys. The Jags couldn't get much going offensively, so Yeldon didn't have as many opportunities as the team would have liked in the game. With Leonard Fournette (hamstring) set to miss another game, Yeldon is a solid fantasy option for Week 7 against the Texans.
T.J. Yeldon scores in Jaguars' loss.
With Leonard Fournette (hamstring) out again, Yeldon handled the load against the Chiefs, carrying ten times for 53 yards and catching eight passes (on ten targets) for 69 yards and a touchdown. The score was on a wheel route where he got wide open in the end zone. Corey Grant (foot) looks to be done for the season, and Fournette is fully expected to miss more time, so Yeldon should remain a workhorse in Week 6 against the Cowboys.
T.J. Yeldon totals 100 yards and two touchdowns in Jaguars' win.
With Leonard Fournette again dealing with hamstring issues in the Week 4 game, Yeldon handled most of the work in Jacksonville's backfield, rushing 18 times for 52 yards and a touchdown along with three receptions for 48 yards and a touchdown. He also lost a fumble in the game. The first touchdown was on a 31-yard catch-and-run in the second quarter, and the second touchdown was on a goal line carry on fourth down late in the game. Yeldon is on pace for 196 carries for 820 yards and four touchdowns along with 56 receptions for 500 yards and eight touchdowns; however, things would be different if Fournette was healthy. If Fournette misses next week against the Chiefs, Yeldon would be a strong option in Week 5 fantasy lineups.
T.J. Yeldon totals 90 yards in Week 3.
With Leonard Fournette (hamstring) out for a second straight game, Yeldon—despite dealing with an ankle injury coming into the game—again led Jacksonville's backfield. Yeldon led the team in both rushing and receiving against the Titans, carrying seven times for 44 yards and catching six passes for 46 yards. Fournette should have a decent shot of returning in Week 4 after he seemed close to playing this week, but Yeldon would remain a FLEX option if Fournette remains out.
T.J. Yeldon (ankle) is officially active against the Titans.
Yeldon didn’t practice on a full basis during the week, but he’s ready to go with Leonard Fournette (hamstring) out again for the Jaguars. Yeldon might be less than 100%, so he’s more of a FLEX option this week.
T.J. Yeldon (ankle) is questionable for Sunday against the Titans.
Yeldon missed Wednesday's practice but was able to become a limited participant yesterday. He could be a true gametime decision, but his status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday. Yeldon would only be a recommended fantasy option if Leonard Fournette sits again.
T.J. Yeldon (ankle) was limited in today's practice.
After missing yesterday's practice session, a limited participation was a good sign today. Yeldon doesn't need a full participation to play on Sunday against the Titans. His official game status will be released some time tomorrow.
T.J. Yeldon (ankle) officially missed practice today.
Yeldon has had a history of some ankle issues, but it's just Wednesday. Hopefully he's back out at practice in at least a limited capacity tomorrow.
T.J. Yeldon plays efficiently on 12 touches as Jaguars defeat the Patriots.
Drawing the start for Leonard Fournette (hamstring), Yeldon rushed ten times for 58 yards and caught two passes for 13 yards. It wasn't the performance that fantasy owners that rolled with him wanted, but Jacksonville had to reason to stay on the ground as Blake Bortles seemingly did whatever he wanted through the air. If Fournette is out again in Week 3, Yeldon will remain a low-end RB2/FLEX option against the Titans.
T.J. Yeldon scores in Week 1.
Yeldon worked as the clear lead ball-carrier for the Jaguars after Leonard Fournette left the game with a hamstring injury. He carried 14 times for 51 rushing yards and caught three passes for 18 receiving yards and a receiving touchdown. The score came on a short pass in the flat. If Fournette misses more time with his hamstring injury, Yeldon would be a solid option in fantasy lineups.
T.J. Yeldon handles seven touches in 24-20 loss to New England.
Yeldon rushed five times for 25 yards and caught two passes for six yards. Unsurprisingly, Leonard Fournette handled the bulk of the work, but Yeldon ended the season as his top change-of-pace option. The Alabama product should have a similar role in 2018 as he enters the final year of his rookie contract. He’s probably not worth drafting in fantasy leagues.
T.J. Yeldon makes an impact in playoff win.
Yeldon rusher five times for 20 yards and a touchdown in the 45-42 win against the Steelers. He also led the team with three receptions for 57 yards. Yeldon saw some extended play with Leonard Fournette missing time and Chris Ivory inactive, and he took advantage. He will look to have a similar impact in the AFC Championship next week in New England.
T.J. Yeldon (illness) is inactive for today's playoff game against the Bills.
Yeldon didn't practice all week while dealing with his bug, and he was a true questionable coming into the game. Corey Grant could have a bigger role in Jacksonville's backfield, but it'll likely be a lot of Leonard Fournette as the Jags look to advance to the Divisional Round.
T.J. Yeldon (illness) is questionable to play in Sunday's playoff game.
Yeldon hasn't been able to practice this week while dealing with the stomach flu, and it sounds like he's a true game-time call. Jacksonville has a deep running back group, so it would not be surprising to see Yeldon inactive against the Bills. His status will be known by Sunday morning at the latest.
T.J. Yeldon gets five touches against the Titans.
Yeldon had four carries for five yards and one reception for -2 yards in the Week 17 loss, and his regular seasons ends with 49 carries for 253 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns along with 30 receptions for 224 receiving yards.
T.J. Yeldon scores in Week 16.
Yeldon worked as the clear number two back behind Leonard Fournette against the 49ers, carrying five times for 13 yards and a touchdown along with seven receptions (on ten targets) for 64 yards. It was a very good fantasy day for Yeldon, but the Jaguars typically won't be throwing the ball 50 times in a game, so Yeldon isn't likely to get ten targets against the Titans next week.
T.J. Yeldon gets 11 touches in Jaguars' win.
Yeldon received his most amount of carries since Week 9, as Leonard Fournette (quadricep) sat out against the Texans. Yeldon carried seven times for 27 yards and also added four receptions (on five targets) for 25 yards in the blowout win. He'll contribute when called upon, but Yeldon isn't a highly-reccomended fantasy option.
T.J. Yeldon catches two passes in Week 13.
Yeldon didn't receive any carries in the win over the Colts, but he had 25 receiving yards on his two receptions. Yeldon's role isn't big enough to deliver fantasy value, but it's good to see him in the lineup and making plays for his team.
T.J. Yeldon leads team in receiving as Jags are upset on the road.
Yeldon caught five passes for 42 yards, adding three carries for 10 yards in the 27-24 loss to Arizona. The former second-round pick is averaging 6.4 yards per carry on the season, and most of that damage came against the Colts in October when he rushed for 122 yards on nine carries. That came with Leonard Fournette inactive, though, so Yeldon isn't a recommended fantasy option against Indy in Week 13.
T.J. Yeldon gets six touches against the Browns.
Yeldon carried five times for 15 yards and added one reception for five yards. The third-year back appears to be second in line behind Leonard Fournette in Jacksonville's backfield, but he's not a fantasy option as long as Fournette is in the lineup.
T.J. Yeldon gets nine touches against the Chargers.
Yeldon carried three times for 11 yards and caught six of eight targets for 39 yards in the Jaguars win. After he was inactive for nearly the first two months of the season, it's good to see Yeldon continue to contribute when given his opportunity after what must've been a frustrating several weeks on the bench. Yeldon isn't yet a FLEX option, but he's particularly worth a look in PPR leagues as a good receiver out of the backfield.
T.J. Yeldon gets 13 touches against the Bengals.
Yeldon fumbled on his first attempt of the game, but it was good to see the Jaguars go back to him. He had 11 carries for 41 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in the Week 9 win. Leonord Fournette is likely to be active in Week 10, so Yeldon might not play next game.
T.J. Yeldon plays great in his first action of 2017.
The 2015 second-round pick has been inactive for each of the first six games this season, but he finally got his opportunity with Leonard Fournette out with an ankle injury, and he made the most of it. Yeldon carried nine times for 122 yards and a touchdown while adding two receptions for 15 yards receiving. Yeldon's touchdown was a 58-yard run up the middle where he showed great vision and broke it to the left before diving in the end zone for a touchdown. It's really great to see someone that no doubt must be frustrated while sitting on the sidelines and watching all season to make a big impact when finally given a chance. Perhaps he'll continue being active when Fournette returns from his ankle injury in Week 9.
T.J. Yeldon is again a healthy scratch.
The former second-round pick is currently the fourth running back for the Jaguars, and he could be a trade candidate before the deadline. Leonard Fournette, Chris Ivory, and Corey Grant will handle the touches in the backfield against the Jets.
T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) is out for Week 2.
Yeldon is still dealing wit ha hamstring injury yarn the Jags are not going to play him until he's 100%, with Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory capable of holding things down. Look for them to combine for 30+ carries against Tennessee today.
T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) is out today against the Texans.
Yeldon was able to be limited participant on Thursday and Friday, but the team isn't going to put him out there at less than 100%. Chris Ivory and Leonard Fournette will carry the load in a difficult matchup versus Houston. Yeldon should be at 100% for next Sunday against the Titans, but check back throughout the week to see his practice status.
T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 1.
The Jaguars play in the early 1:00 PM ET games, so fantasy owners will know whether he's in or out by 11:30 AM ET. The Jags may opt to just hold out Yeldon, but if he does play he's too risky to be in your fantasy lineup.
T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) practiced today.
The third-year back was a limited participant, and it's a good sign he got out there. A full practice would be nice, but even a limited participation might put him on track to play on Sunday unless the Jaguars decide to just hold him out. We'll find out his official game status tomorrow.
T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) did not participate in practice today.
It's only Wednesday, but Yeldon being unable to get in even a limited practice might not bode well for his Week 1 status. It'd mean more work for Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory if Yeldon is unable to go versus the Texans.
T.J. Yeldon is not playing in tonight's preseason game against Carolina.
Yeldon injured his hamstring in last week's preseason game against the Buccaneers and he's still getting back to 100%. With rookie Leonard Fournette already out with a foot issue, Chris Ivory will get a lot of first-team snaps in tonight's exhibition.
T.J. Yeldon leaves preseason game against the Bucs with a hamstring injury.
Obviously this isn't good for the third-year back, as he's dealt with injuries through his first two NFL seasons. The team is calling Yeldon questionable to return with the injury. Leonard Fournette is already out with a foot issue, so Chris Ivory will handle most of the first-team reps in the game if Yeldon doesn't return.
T.J. Yeldon had two carries for no yards in Jaguars Week 1 preseason game.
Yeldon also had a four-yard reception. Because of the addition of Leonard Fournette, Yeldon is probably the third running back for Jacksonville in terms of carries, but he should remain involved in the passing game.
T.J. Yeldon has been placed on Injured Reserve.
With just one game to go and Yeldon not going to play, the Jags placed him on IR. It's Yeldon's second straight year ending on Injured Reserve. It'll be interesting to see who the next head coach is and how he will utilize Yeldon. His season ends with 130 carries for 465 yards and one touchdown, along with 50 receptions for 312 yards and a touchdown. It's hard to predict Yeldon's value without knowing the new offensive staff, but as long as Chris Ivory and his big contract are in the fold, Yeldon won't have much upside as an RB selection.
T.J. Yeldon leaves Jaguars game with injury.
Yeldon injured his ankle on the opening drive against the Titans and was downgraded to questionable at the end of the first half. Yeldon was then ruled out at the start of the second half. Yeldon finished with two rushes for 5 yards, and should be considered questionable for Week 17.
Yeldon leads team in receiving on Sunday.
Unfortunately, Blake Bortles threw for just 92 yards, so Yeldon finished with five catches for 34 yards. He also rushed eight times for 28 yards. The second-year back lost work with Chris Ivory's return, and those in dynasty leagues must be eager for a new coaching regime to come in and utilize the talents of the second-year back. He's just a weak FLEX for Week 16 against Tennessee.
T.J. Yeldon takes on workhorse role with Chris Ivory and Denard Robinson both out for the Jaguars.
Yeldon had 17 carries for 59 yards and seven catches for 31 yards against the Vikings. If Chris Ivory (hamstring) remains out next week against the Texans, Yeldon would be a very good RB2/FLEX option, even in a bad offense.
T.J. Yeldon rushed 14 times for 55 yards and caught three passes for 27 yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.
With Chris Ivory out, Yeldon split the work with Denard Robinson and led the team in rushing despite coming off an ankle injury. It was a decent game from Yeldon, but he is no more than a weak FLEX next week versus Minnesota, especially if Chris Ivory is back.
T.J. Yeldon (ankle) is active for the Jaguars in Week 13.
With Chris Ivory (hamstring) out, Yeldon could get a good workload in this game. He's a good FLEX option against the Broncos run defense.
T.J. Yeldon (ankle) practiced on Thursday.
He was a limit participant. He suited up last week, but was limited. The same thing happening this week is a possibility. If Yeldon does play he would be a risky fantasy option, even if Chris Ivory (hamstring) is out.
T.J. Yeldon (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday.
Chris Ivory (hamstring) also did not practice. If Yeldon was to practice Thursday and Friday, he could end up being a good option against the Broncos if Ivory is out. Keep checking on his status.
Surprise active T.J. Yeldon (ankle) is limited despite Chris Ivory (hamstring) exiting early.
Yeldon rushed six times for 17 yards and caught one pass for three yards in the loss. He didn't practice all week, so it isn't too concerning for Yeldon owners that Denard Robinson ended up seeing 13 carries after Ivory's exit. If Yeldon practices this week, it should set him up to be featured in Week 13 and down the stretch; if so, he'd be a good FLEX option next week versus an overrated Denver run defense.
T.J. Yeldon (ankle) is active for the Jaguars.
He tested it pregame and is good to go for the game. However, it is unlikely that he is at 100% and should not be trusted in your fantasy lineup. Chris Ivory figures to get a good amount of work and is a solid FLEX option in Week 12.
Yeldon (ankle) missed practice on Wednesday.
His absence does not bode well for his Week 12 status. If Yeldon is out, Chris Ivory should handle most of the touches with Denard Robinson mixing in as a chance-of-pace.
T.J. Yeldon exits game with ankle injury against Lions in Week 11.
Yeldon had four carries for 16 yards and two catches for 16 yards before he left. He started the game ahead of Chris Ivory. Even if Yeldon was to play in Week 12, he would not be a great fantasy option. Keep him on your roster though.
Yeldon in even backfield split with Ivory against the Texans.
T.J. Yeldon had nine carries for 32 yards and three catches for 27 yards. Chris Ivory also had nine carries in the game. Because of the limited work, Yeldon is merely a decent FLEX option.
