Weekly fantasy football Q&A: Can T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory get back on track?

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars are 0-3 so let’s talk about what really matters -- your fantasy football team!

Greg from Carson City, CA

Q: T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory have a combined 98 rushing yards this season, and a combined 92 yards after contact. Is it safe to say neither will be starting this year in anyone's league?

A: You would be correct sir. Both Yeldon and Ivory can be assigned in a flex if you’re in dire straights, but unless they start producing on a consistent basis, they are riding the pine.

Chase from Summerville, SC

Q: I own Blake Bortles and Matthew Stafford. Who should I start for Week 4?

A: Stafford. He has one of the best arms in the league, the #1 fantasy receiver, and is playing the Bears, who have been terrible on defense.

Mark from Jacksonville Beach, FL

Q: What’s it going to take for Allen Hurns to be a decent WR2 play?

A: Consistent catches for Allen Robinson. When Robinson is consistently pulling in a larger share of the targets, defenses tend to favor his side and he sees more double teams. This is where Hurns capitalizes.

Scott from Green Cove Springs, FL

Q: So far, the Jaguars offense looks a lot worse than we thought it would. Outside of Allen Robinson and some garbage time situations for Blake Bortles, is there anyone on this Jaguars team worth a consistent look?

A: Unfortunately, no.

If you’re streaming TEs, Julius Thomas can be somewhat of a plug and play, but there is too low of a floor to rationalize the potential upside.

Peter from Chicago, IL

Q: Mike Evans, Sterling Shephard, and Eric Decker: Who would you play in the flex?

A: Mike Evans. He’s in the WR1 position and shaping up to be last year’s Allen Robinson.

While I do like Shepard, he has an incredibly tough matchup against the Vikings, and Decker most likely won’t play against another tough defense in Seattle.

Ben from Jacksonville, FL


A: Ben, if this actually happens in your league next year, I will salute you with one of the finest red solo cups around.
