FANTASY FOOTBALL THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
The Playoff BEAST Yeldon (Week 11)
BEAST DOME NATION.
For a lot of you, the trade deadline is over. For the few that still have time left to make a deal, TJ Yeldon is the RB you want on your team for that last playoff push. Never thought I would be saying in Week 11 that the Jacksonville Jaguars have a chance to make the playoffs, but they have to be the favorites due to the fact they have the best offense in the AFC South. If you can strike a deal while keeping your Core RB studs in place while losing some depth as well as a WR who does not see your lineup often, strike a deal.
Tonight the Jaguars face the Tennessee Titans in what is really a Win or Go Home Game for the Titans as they have a small chance to make the Playoffs as well.
When the Titans have the ball, their offense is becoming very unpredictable. Which in ways is good, but also in ways has the Titans themselves guessing what they are going to do each play. Ever since Kendall Wright has gone down, it left a void for who else is consistently going to get involved in the passing game outside of Delanie Walker. Delanie needs the ball in his hands tonight if the Titans have a chance of winning, which should really not be a problem considering the other two main options are Harry Douglas and Dorial Green-Beckham. It has been an interesting rookie season for Marcus Mariota, but tonight is a good opportunity to show that he is going to be a good starter throughout his NFL Career. The Titans Running game has had a lot of different players touch the ball throughout the year, but Antonio Andrews has always been the most consistent. Expect the Titans to mix that up with David Cobb getting more touches tonight.
When the Jaguars have the ball, TJ Yeldon is going to show everyone that if you have him on your Fantasy Football Team, you have a good stretch run of the season coming up to take home the crown. While Yeldon has not been a consistent BEAST as far as the Fantasy Numbers department is concerned, he has always been a workhorse this rookie season who is seeing the ball nearly 20 times a game every game. When the right matchup comes up like this one tonight against the Titans, the Fireworks should follow with it.
Blake Bortles has been a man on a mission as well as his 3 man core of passing options; Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, and Julius Thomas ranks as one of the best 3 options in the NFL today. Bortles is making a lot of really good throws and he should be able to tear up the Titans Secondary that will have enough trouble stopping Yeldon.
Last week my 4 game winning streak was snapped, tonight we keep it rolling in Jacksonville.
