According to beat writer John Shipley, rookie running back Travis Etienne will be the Jacksonville Jaguars’ “primary pass-catcher” out of the backfield (per John Shipley)
Fantasy Impact: There’s been lots to debate about how the Jaguars’ backfield will be deployed but it seems we’re starting to get more clarity as we approach the 2021 season. James Robinson will be the lead back with Etienne getting work in the passing game. Hopefully we see a Cleveland Browns-esque backfield were both Robinson and Etienne offer high-level fantasy value in their roles. Robinson is currently ranked our RB24 this year and Etienne is our RB32.
