T.J. Yeldon will get 15+ carries: FACT

If you want to credit the Jacksonville coaching staff with one thing this season, they sure know how to react and “adapt” when certain things don’t work. They can’t get the ball in the endzone with 4 straight runs in Buffalo? They try some fades and combination routes the next game. That doesn’t work? Throw Denard Robinson in there for 3 straight runs the next week.

The Jaguars exclusively passed in the redzone last week to no avail, so guess what they are going to do this week… run the ball.

The one thing the Jaguars haven’t really tried this season is utilizing Yeldon in the redzone. It was actually baffling to see him utilized so little last week against the Chargers after he had so much success running and catching the ball in their first drive. The Jaguars are going to stop being cute in the redzone and let their bellcow back try to get it in.
