SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — In four years at Alabama, Damien Harris has shared the backfield with several runners who either have or will play in the NFL.
From Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry and Kenyan Drake in 2015, to Bo Scarbrough the next two years, to his current running mates Najee Harris and Joshua Jacobs, the top-ranked Crimson Tide (14-0) have always had a variety of running threats to fuel their offense.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Leonard Fournette's season-long struggles proved costly for his position coach.
The Jacksonville Jaguars fired running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley and three more assistants Monday night, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity and said offensive line coach Pat Flaherty, secondary coach Perry Fewell and defensive line coach Marion Hobby also were let go one day after the season finale.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone says running back Leonard Fournette was responding to racial slurs while yelling at a fan in Nashville, Tennessee last Thursday night.
Fournette declined to address the accusation in the locker room Monday on the advice of his agent.
Teammate and fellow running back T.J. Yeldon, however, said several fans directed racial slurs at Jacksonville players.
The crescendo of the fantasy football season also marks a shift across the NFL landscape that starts this week.
Teams learn they'll be in or out of the playoffs, others manage injuries with an eye toward January or next season, while some teams battle for playoff positions.
Understanding those dynamics and how they relate to daily fantasy can help separate you from the crowd. Here are a few spots for fantasy players to exploit during Week 13:
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars traded for Cleveland running back Carlos Hyde on Friday, adding a proven starter while Leonard Fournette progresses slowly from a strained right hamstring.
The Browns (2-3-1) will get a 2019 fifth-round draft pick from the Jaguars in exchange for Hyde, who has 382 yards rushing and five touchdowns in his first season in Cleveland. Hyde signed a three-year, $15.25 million contract in March.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed former Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles to help during Leonard Fournette's absence.
The 31-year-old Charles worked out for the team Tuesday morning and signed a one-year contract in the afternoon.
The Jaguars (3-2) lost third-string running back Corey Grant (foot) for the season and expect to be without Fournette for several more weeks. Grant was placed on injured reserve, opening a roster spot for Charles.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars are placing tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and running back Corey Grant on injured reserve.
Coach Doug Marrone says Seferian-Jenkins will have core muscle surgery but could return later in the season. Grant will miss the rest of the year with a foot injury.
Seferian-Jenkins has 11 receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown. Grant has 13 carries for 40 yards to go along with nine receptions for 67 yards.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars running backs Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon are among five players listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Tennessee.
Fournette missed last week's victory against New England because of a strained right hamstring and was limited in practice this week. Yeldon, who led the team with 58 yards rushing against the Patriots, was limited all week because of an ankle injury.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars expect running back Leonard Fournette to return to practice Wednesday, a step toward playing against AFC South rival Tennessee.
Fournette strained his right hamstring in the season opener at the New York Giants and missed last week's victory against the New England Patriots. It was the fourth game he's missed in two seasons, and the Jaguars (2-0) are undefeated without him.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have promoted running back Brandon Wilds from the practice squad, making a roster move in case Leonard Fournette doesn't play against the New England Patriots on Sunday.
The Jaguars made room for Wilds on the 53-man roster by releasing receiver Rashad Greene, a fifth-round draft pick in 2015. Greene was inactive for the season opener.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone is optimistic running back Leonard Fournette will play against New England despite missing practice all week.
Marrone says Fournette's recovery from a strained right hamstring has been "encouraging," but the coach listed Fournette as questionable on the injury report Friday.
Marrone adds that Fournette has stayed involved in meetings and game-planning, so "he'll be ready to go" if he's cleared to play Sunday.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon hasn't started a game in nearly two years, a frustrating stretch that forced him to work harder and be more patient.
He always felt like he would get another shot. He didn't expect it to be this week.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette missed practice Wednesday because of a strained right hamstring.
Fournette tweaked his hamstring in the first half of last week's season-opening win at the New York Giants.
The fourth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft ran nine times for 41 yards before leaving the game. He also caught three passes for 14 yards.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have released veteran running back Chris Ivory, who was ineffective and then inactive late in the season.
Ivory averaged 3.4 yards a carry, finishing with 382 yards and a touchdown last season. He was inactive for four of Jacksonville's final five games. The Jaguars used versatile running back T.J. Yeldon and speedster Corey Grant down the stretch to give rookie workhorse Leonard Fournette breaks.
Matchups for the AFC championship game Sunday between the Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots:
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Marqise Lee practiced for the first time in three weeks Friday, increasing his chances of playing in a wild-card game against Buffalo.
Lee missed the final two regular-season games after spraining his right ankle. He was limited in his practice Friday, but did enough to please coach Doug Marrone.
Marrone says Lee "looked better than I envisioned."
Lee leads the team in receptions (56) and ranks second in yards (702).
LONDON (AP) — Baltimore Ravens rookie offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor, born in London, is active for the first time in the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium.
Eluemunor, a fifth-round draft pick out of Texas A&M, was 12 when he saw the first NFL game played in London on television and decided he wanted to play football.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without running back Leonard Fournette, receiver Marqise Lee and cornerback A.J. Bouye for their preseason game against Carolina on Thursday night.
Coach Doug Marrone ruled out all three projected starters Monday, adding that running back T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) and tight end Michael Rivera (hand) also won't play against the Panthers.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed veteran running DuJuan Harris and waived/injured cornerback Charles Gaines.
Harris provides the team some depth heading into Thursday's preseason game against Carolina. Fellow running backs Leonard Fournette (foot) and T.J. Yeldon (ankle) are unlikely to play against the Panthers.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired former Michigan standout Tyrone Wheatley as running backs coach.
Wheatley spent the past two years coaching running backs at his alma mater. Before that, he spent five years working for new Jaguars coach Doug Marrone.
Wheatley coached running backs with the NFL's Buffalo Bills (2013-14) and on the collegiate level at Syracuse (2010-12). Marrone was the head coach at both stops.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed running back T.J. Yeldon on injured reserve before their season finale.
Yeldon injured his left ankle in Saturday's victory against Tennessee and would not have been ready to play at Indianapolis on Sunday. To replace him on the 53-man roster, Jacksonville (3-12) claimed running back Daryl Richardson off waivers from Pittsburgh.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without two offensive starters Sunday against Denver and maybe a third.
Coach Gus Bradley ruled out running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) and receiver Allen Hurns (hamstring) on Friday. He also listed tight end Julius Thomas (back) as doubtful to play against the defending Super Bowl champion Broncos (7-4).
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas won't play Sunday at Buffalo because of a back injury.
Coach Gus Bradley ruled out Thomas on Friday. It will be the second game Thomas has missed this season and his sixth in two seasons with Jacksonville. The Jaguars (2-8) placed fellow tight end Marcedes Lewis (calf) on injured reserve earlier in the week, leaving Ben Koyack and Neal Sterling to handle the workload at Buffalo (5-5).
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley says quarterback Blake Bortles "threw pretty well" in practice Wednesday despite a sore right shoulder.
Bortles adds that he got treatment and will "be good to go" when the Jaguars (2-8) play at Buffalo (5-5) on Sunday.
When the first Week 11 inactives were released Sunday, the smattering of defensive players and lineman were a heartening set of names, at least for fantasy purposes, relatively free of impact pass-catchers and running backs.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Ivory will miss his second straight game Sunday while recovering from a "general medical issue."
Coach Gus Bradley ruled Ivory out Friday, saying T.J. Yeldon will start at San Diego and Denard Robinson will get some carries.
Bradley also ruled out cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring). Without Amukamara, rookie Jalen Ramsey and Davon House will start, and Dwayne Gratz will play in nickel situations.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars say running back Chris Ivory has been hospitalized with a "general medical issue" and won't play in the team's season opener against Green Bay.
The Jaguars released a statement Sunday saying Ivory was inactive and had been admitted to a hospital. He was limited in three practices this week because of a calf injury.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars expect running back Chris Ivory to play in the team's season opener against Green Bay despite a calf injury.
Ivory was limited in practice for the third consecutive day Friday and listed as questionable on the injury report, but coach Gus Bradley says "the arrow's up" on him.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars talk every day about starting fast.
In two preseason games, they've been able to experience it.
Blake Bortles threw two touchdowns passes in three drives and gave the Jaguars an early lead against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who rallied to win 27-21 in the preseason Saturday night.
