The Scary Jaguars Backfield and a potential ROTY look

The emergence of Tank Bigsby adds another dynamic element to an already impressive Jaguars backfield. With the presence of rookie sensation Travis Etienne Jr., the Jags now have a formidable duo in their running game.

Etienne, known for his explosiveness and versatility, complements Bigsby's power and agility, creating a well-rounded and balanced backfield.

The combination of Bigsby and Etienne has the potential to give opposing defenses nightmares. Bigsby's ability to break tackles and gain tough yards, paired with Etienne's speed and elusiveness, creates a dynamic and unpredictable rushing attack. This duo has the potential to be a game-changer for the Jaguars and could elevate their offense to new heights.

As Tank Bigsby continues to impress during the preseason, the future looks bright for the young running back. As noted before, his performances have most likely solidified his position as a top-tier RB2 in the Jaguars' offense and have raised expectations for his rookie season.

While it will be hard to outperform Bijan Robinson or Jaymir Gibbs in the stat lines, considering they will get 15-22 carries a game; however, Bigsby's role is now expected to expand as he continues you produce. He is ranked as the 23rd favorite for the ROTY Award, +7500, but any injury to Etienne and he will rocket up that list.
