The silver lining for those owning Yeldon is that he may come in more on passing downs as he has proven to be a solid receiver out of the backfield so far in 2016. He hasn’t been particularly productive (just 40 yards on those 12 receptions) and hasn’t found the end zone as a receiver, but he could get a few looks in Week 3.
On the whole, however, his lack of production and the return of another dominant back will make Yeldon an unreliable option at best. If you’re desperate it may even be better to find someone else on the waiver wire rather than hope that Yeldon can magically deliver after letting down fantasy owners so far this season.
After an impressive rookie season in which he averaged over four yards per carry as the workhorse back, Yeldon has been a disappointment. He needs to find his form and he needs to reinstate himself as a critical part of the Jacksonville Jaguars offense. He hasn’t done that thus far and it’s hurting those who own him in fantasy.
Sit the Jags running back in Week 3. You’ll thank me for it when the games all end.
