|Yeldon largely serves as the counterpunch to Fournette's bruising style and only receives significant rushing work when Fournette is out with injury. In 2017, he served as the third option behind Fournette and Chris Ivory and only managed 49 carries for the season. With Ivory now in Buffalo, there's a chance Yeldon could see that total increase, but it's also conceivable that he falls below Corey Grant, as well. Yeldon enters this season coming off of three consecutive seasons with at least 40 targets and 30 receptions. In PPR leagues, he could serve as a desperation fill-in flex option because of this role, but Yeldon has been mostly uninspiring as a fantasy asset and is probably best left as a free agent for now.
| Leonard Fournette doubtful|
Foot, ankle injury

|Did not see Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette during the open media viewing portion of Friday's practice. He did not practice on Thursday because of a foot/ankle injury. Not a good sign for his availability on Sunday at Houston. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Fournette is going to miss the season finale and Carlos Hyde is questionable with a knee injury. If Hyde misses, David Williams and T.J. Yeldon would likely split the workload against the Texans.
|Leonard Fournette suspended one game|
League bans RB for throwing punches in Week 12 loss
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 26, 7:35 pm
|Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette has been suspended one game for violations of unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: It's another blow for the few remaining teams that were able to survive Fournette's earlier absence due to his injured hamstring. T.J. Yeldon and Carlos Hyde figure to form a committee in the likely event Fournette doesn't win his appeal. Yeldon will be the preferred play, if only because the Jaguars figure to be in negative game script against the Colts in Week 13.
