| Chris Ivory ruled out for Week 2 -- Fri Sep 16 11:14 am --|
Yeldon expected to start
|Running back Chris Ivory also did not practice Friday and will miss his second consecutive game. Ivory was hospitalized with what the team calls a “general medical condition” several hours prior to the Packers game. Ivory was back at EverBank Field on Thursday and could return against Baltimore on Sept. 25. (Flordia Times Union)|
FF Today's Take: With Ivory out, T.J. Yeldon should once again see the majority of snaps at running back for Jacksonville. Yeldon saw 25 touches in Week 1 but was terribly inefficient in the run game (1.9 ypc). Yeldon is a solid RB2 against the Chargers who got torched by the Chiefs' running backs in Week 1.
| Chris Ivory still hospitalized, undergoing tests -- Tue Sep 13 3:43 pm --|
Jags RB status still developing
|Adam Schefter (AAdamSchefter) on Twitter: "Jaguars' RB Chris Ivory remains hospitalized with what team is calling a "general medical issue." Team expects to know more in next 48 hours" (Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: This isn't great -- and he's still undergoing tests this afternoon. Hopefully Ivory is good to go and this isn't a serious health issue -- just a temporary football problem. For now, it means that T.J. Yeldon could pick up extra work and vault into RB1 territory for Week 2.
| RB Chris Ivory inactive -- Sun Sep 11 11:30 am --|
|Jaguars inactives: Chris Ivory, Allen, Johnson, Reed, Walters, Alualu and C. Smith. ... House starts at LCB. (Ryan O\'Halloran on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Ivory was dealing with a calf injury but is reportedly missing this game with an illness. T.J. Yeldon gets a slight value bump with Ivory out and should see the majority of the work in the Jags backfield against the Packers.
| Ivory Questionable, expected to play -- Fri Sep 9 11:36 am --|
|Running back Chris Ivory, who has a calf injury, and defensive end Jared Odrick, who went into the concussion protocol after getting hit in the jaw earlier this week, have both been listed as questionable. Coach Gus Bradley suggested both players could have been listed as probable last year, however. Bradley added that Ivory’s calf issue is unlikely to alter the rotation in the backfield with T.J. Yeldon against the Packers. (ProFootballTalk)|
FF Today's Take: Fantasy owners need to get used to the new rules regarding the injury report. The "Probable" designation has been kicked to the curb. Many "Questionable" players will likely suit up on Sunday's. Ivory should be splitting work with Yeldon in Week 1.
