Jaguars RB TJ Yeldon Out Week 6 vs Texans

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without rookie RB T.J. Yeldon against the Houston Texans in Week 6 of the NFL.  Yeldon has carried the ball 81 times this season, gaining 291 yards, but yet to score a rushing touchdown.  He has caught 15 of his 20 targets for 73 yards and caught a TD last week.

The Jaguars will turn to Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart in the backfield.  They have combined for 11 carries and 38 yards.  Robinson is a much better option in fantasy football this week, and don't forget, he averaged 4.3 yards per carry last season.  Robinson led the Jaguars with 582 rushing yards last season.

Not that you would expect Robinson or Gerhart to do so, but the Texans run defense has yet to allow a 100 yard rusher.  They did allow Devonta Freeman to score three times though!

I would expect Blake Bortles to throw close to 40 times today, and target Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Julius Thomas frequently.  The Texans secondary has been average against QBs this season.  They have allowed Mike Evans and Leonard Hankerson to go for 100 yards and last week allowed Matt Hasselbeck complete 11 passes to TY Hilton and Andre Johnson (2 TDs) who combined for 165 yards.  However, since Travis Kelce went off in Week 1 scoring twice against the Texans, Houston has allowed just 13 receptions to TEs in four games.
