|Hyde is likely to be the player to benefit the most should James Robinson miss time for any reason. A physical banger as a runner, and a player who has played for HC Urban Meyer (at Ohio State), he knows the system and understands what it takes to be productive as an NFL back. Handcuff him to Robinson and don't be afraid to insert him in the lineup when the time comes. Meyer will trust him when the chips are on the table.
| Etienne will have foot surgery, placed on IR|
Jags lose rookie RB in second pre-season game

|Sources: #Jaguars 1st round RB Travis Etienne suffered a significant tear, a serious Lisfranc injury that knocks him out for the next several months and potentially the season. Officially, the timeline is 12 weeks minimum for Travis Etienne. He’ll have surgery as soon as possible and then would have a chance to come back late in the season if all goes well and it makes sense. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Ugh. Etienne will likely go on IR shortly but fantasy owners can go ahead and cross him of their cheatsheets. James Robinson and Carlos Hyde are solidified at the top of the running back depth chart in Jacksonville. WR Laviska Shenault can be bumped up a few spots in PPR leagues.

Jags rookie RB could miss time, extent of injury uncertain

|Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) via Twitter:
"#Jaguars RB Travis Etienne, spotted on crutches after the game, suffered a Lisfranc iniury and will have further tests today, source said. X-Rays were negative so the belief is it’s just a sprain. Exams today will determine how long he’s out." (ian Rapoport via Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: This is big blow for the Jags running game but a huge bump for the fantasy stock of James Robinson, who now has less competition, aside from veteran Carlos Hyde, for primary touches. Stay tuned.
