| Chris Ivory was brought in to be the answer to Jacksonville's rushing attack but durability issues and ineffectiveness led to his lowest total touches since injuries limited him to six games in 2013. Jacksonville gave him the rock at least 15 times in only two of his eleven games played in 2016 and the addition of Leonard Fournette is telling of the team's confidence in Ivory moving forward. Ivory gets the job done when healthy so there is a chance he starts the year splitting carries with Fournette. However, it is more likely that Ivory serves as a caddie to Fournette and sees his touches per game dwindle into single digit territory. Unless an injury or off-the-field issue with Fournette occurs, Ivory is probably not worth owning in all but the deepest leagues.
| Thomas Rawls, T.J. Yeldon could be held out|
Gametime decision for both RBs

|#Jaguars RB TJ Yeldon (hamstring) & #Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls are in similar situations. Both practiced, both may be held out to get to 100%. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Rawls has been labeled a gametime decision. He's dealing with a high ankle sprain since August 13th. Expect to Eddie Lacy to start with C.J. Prosise and Chris Carson also seeing action. Yeldon was limted in practice this week with a hamstring injury. Chris Ivory would get more run if Yeldon sits.
|Jaguars bench Bortles, Henne to start|
Turnovers could spell the end of Bortles' time in Jacksonville

|JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Chad Henne will start Jacksonville's preseason game against Carolina, a change that could signal the end of Blake Bortles' career with the Jaguars.
Coach Doug Marrone made the announcement Wednesday, a day before the exhibition and nearly a week after he created a quarterback competition in Jacksonville for the first time since 2013. Marrone said both quarterbacks will get time with the first-team offense.
Henne, a 10-year veteran whose last start came in 2014, outperformed Bortles during training camp and through two preseason games. If Henne plays well against the Panthers, he likely will start the Sept. 10 season opener at Houston.
FFToday's Take: Jacksonville will lean on an improved offensive line and the trio of Leonard Fournette, Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon to carry the offense while setting up the passing game. Regardless of who starts under center, fantasy owners shouldn't expect Jacksonville to be a high volume passing attack in 2017. Adjust your rankings for Allen Robinson, Marquis Lee and Allen Hurns accordingly.
