LSU hoping to reverse trend of last-drive collapses versus Alabama

LSU is hoping to snap a four-game losing streak versus its fierce SEC West rival. Not only has Alabama's defense put the proverbial clamps on the Tigers' offense, but the Crimson Tide's offensive unit has also demonstrated clutch play at the ends of games. In both 2012 and 2014, LSU has relinquished points on the final drives of games -- which ultimately resulted in losses. The...

Why TJ Yeldon makes perfect sense with the Jacksonville Jaguars

This is not to say the comparisons are there, but here is something to ponder. When the Jacksonville Jaguars picked Fred Taylor with the ninth pick in the 1998 NFL Draft, they chose a player who was 6’1” and 228 pounds. We all know how that turned out.  Tonight, the Jaguars drafted TJ Yeldon at 6’2” and 226 pounds. Maybe I should stop there. You cannot help but get excited...

POLL: Tevin Coleman or T.J. Yeldon

The Cowboys need for running back high on the list, and could be as high as #27 in the 1st round of this year’s draft, but could also be addressed in the 2nd-3rd round at the very latest. The running back class is deep, but the talent is solid, so there will be “runs” on these guys. For me, I’ve narrowed the Cowboys likely choices between two backs: Tevin Coleman, Indiana...

TJ Yeldon may be the running back the Jacksonville Jaguars are looking for

The one thing Jacksonville Jaguars fans can be sure of in the 2104 NFL Draft is that at some point this team is going to select what they hope to be the franchise running back of the team’s future. While many names have been bantered about, from Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon, should they all into the top part of the second round, to possibly someone like an Ajay Ajayi of Boise...

T.J. Yeldon’s Fit with the Dallas Cowboys

I won’t sugar-coat it; T.J. Yeldon is one of the most fascinating players in the entire draft to me. If you would’ve asked me where I would have drafted Yeldon after his freshman year at Alabama, I would’ve said first round. I may have even said in the top 10. Yeldon was one pace to be one of the greatest players in Alabama history. But in the next two seasons, Yeldon was often...

T.J. Yeldon's ability to catch will drive up his fantasy value as a flex guy

One skill we always value when it comes to drafting fantasy potent running backs is the ability to catch the football. Now, you might think a good receiving running back is only valuable in PPR (points per reception leagues) but that is simply not true. While receiving running backs definitely have more value in PPR leagues, they're also highly draftable in redraft leagues. Of the...
