WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Travis Etienne | Jaguars RB

Travis Etienne (foot) has been placed on injured reserve.

The move officially ends his season, and Etienne will now be fully focused on returning in 2022. Dynasty owners should look to buy low on the former Clemson standout—who we expect to be healthy and running behind an improved offensive line next year.

Travis Etienne (foot) is likely done for the season.

Etienne was injured on just one touch in last night's preseason game, and his season unfortunately appears to be over. This is just a brutal blow for Jacksonville's first-round pick, and he will undergo surgery with a focus on returning in 2022. In addition to the redraft implications (especially for those who already had their drafts), Etienne—who we rank as an RB1 in dynasty leagues—gets knocked down some in dynasty leagues; on the bright side, the injury shouldn't linger, but it will now be the James Robinson show again this fall/winter. Already undervalued, the former undrafted runner can easily be a top-15 option in 0.5 PPR leagues, and Carlos Hyde gets a boost towards more stable FLEX territory.

Travis Etienne suffered a mid-foot sprain.

Etienne is considered out indefinitely, but more testing should give a more defined recovery timeline. The explosive first-round pick appears to be buried on the depth chart based on preseason snaps, so that paired with the injury will certainly cause a tumble down draft boards in the coming days. Etienne is an exceptional talent, though, and hopefully he doesn’t miss much time.

Travis Etienne (foot) is questionable to return to Monday night’s preseason game.

Etienne was injured on one of his three snaps for Jacksonville, and he seems to be limping pretty good as a spectator despite not being ruled out. This news at least explains why the rookie has barely played behind James Robinson and Carlos Hyde, but hopefully this turns out to be nothing serious. Looking at the situation positively, Etienne is still watching the game from the sideline with his pads on rather than undergoing further testing.

The Jaguars have selected Clemson running back Travis Etienne with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

This is a fun one, with Etienne joining longtime college teammate and No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence as a fellow first-round pick of the Jags. Aside from being the best home-run hitter in the draft in terms of speed when he gets to the open field, Etienne is also an excellent receiver, and we view him as a prospect at the level of Jonathan Taylor—so don’t be surprised to see immediate RB1 upside in 2021 for a Jaguars offense that's going to want to run the ball under Urban Meyer. Throughout a four-year, record-breaking career at Clemson, Etienne rushed 686 times for 4,952 yards (7.2 YPC) and 70 touchdowns with a 102/1,155/8 line as a receiver. The Jags could immediately have him atop the depth chart to begin his rookie campaign as a three-down back, but James Robinson obviously had an exceptional rookie year last season after going undrafted, so we'd think both are set to get a good amount of work. Despite the presence of Robinson, the talented Etienne has a case to be immediately vaulted into top-ten dynasty consideration.
