Travis Etienne Jr.
RB - JAC - IR
Week 13 Outlook
Expert NoteView More Notes
Etienne is a home run threat every time he touches the ball. He's a speed demon that has improved dramatically as a receiver throughout his time in college too. He shows good vision in between the tackles and often times knows exactly where the gap is going to open up. However, he struggles with horizontal change of direction, which can limit his ability to cut across multiple gaps. If he's put in a wide zone scheme where he's able to identify the gap, plant his foot, and accelerate quickly up field, he'll be nearly unstoppable. Otherwise, he tends to struggle in between the tackles. Tremendous burst and should be unparalleled in this class. Has the ability to go from 0-60 like few other human beings on this planet and he's gone if he sees green grass. This can sometimes be a detriment though as he often has problems slowing down his momentum to cut or find a new running lane if they one he had identified closes up. Needs to continue to work on harnessing this ability and knowing when to slam the foot on the gas versus gearing up. Struggles to change direction horizontally. This can be for multiple reasons, but it has a lot to do with the way he runs - very upright - and the aforementioned issues with struggling to harness his momentum. He's shown improvement in his willingness to engage in contact and lower his shoulder. Doesn't have the size or frame to move defenders backwards, but has the toughness to engage and fight off tacklers. Should light it up at the NFL Combine in the 40-yard dash. Tremendous top-end speed. Excellent contact balance and able to keep his feet underneath him. Isn't constantly shedding tackles, but able to fight off poor tackling attempts that knock him off his course and keep his foundation. Excellent pass-catcher and has improved drastically throughout his college career. Won't be the type of player to soak up 60+ targets in a season, but certainly should be utilized in this capacity in the NFL. Excellent in pass protection as well. Willing to step in and engage with blitzing LBs and holds his own. Etienne should have the draft capital behind him to be a top-5 2021 Dynasty rookie pick and he has the talent to be one of the leagues best RBs almost immediately.
