RB - JAC
Expert NoteView More Notes
Urban Meyer is certainly known for valuing speed on the football field and the Jaguars have not been shy about their intent to draft Kadarius Toney if he were there at pick No. 25 in the NFL Draft. With Toney off the board, they went with the explosive RB prospect that can absolutely fly in Etienne. My belief is that the Jaguars intend to deploy Etienne as a traditional RB, but then also as a player that they will use all over the formation and simply get the ball in his hands. If that's the case, Etienne's going to be extremely valuable for fantasy football right away. He's a true home-run threat and he's an excellent receiver out of the backfield. As we sit here in early June, I wouldn't be shocked if Etienne finishes as a top-15 RB in fantasy right out of the gates. My Very Early Projection: 184-881-5 rushing & 71-607-2 receiving.

Travis Etienne and the Jacksonville Jaguars agree to terms
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Jaguars have agreed to terms with former Clemson RB, Travis Etienne, who was selected 25th overall in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Jaguars have now signed both of their Clemson first round selections from the 2021 NFL Draft, with the latest being Etienne. The specifics of the deal are still unknown, but there will be no offset language with a large signing bonus upfront. Even though the Jaguars already had 2020 rookie RB sensation, James Robinson, they still elected to draft Etienne back in April. At this moment the expectation is that Eitenne will be the primary pass-catching back for Jacksonville as evident by his cross-training at wide receiver. For fantasy purposes volume will likely be an issue for Etienne as he will have to contend with Robinson and Carlos Hyde. Etienne is currently the RB 24 on FantasyPros for PPR purposes, but does have decent upside depending on how quickly he picks up the offense and could very well earn more playing time as the season progresses, making him a solid stash for 2021.
