There's been a running back narrative flip-flop in Jacksonville this week. 


Star running back and fantasy star Leonard Fournette is expected to return to practice for the Jacksonville Jaguars Wednesday after dealing with a hamstring injury that's kept him out of his last three halves of football this season. 


Meanwhile, his backup, T.J. Yeldon, who started last week, is now reportedly unexpected to practice due to an ankle issue sustained in Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. 

Yeldon has put up a respectable effort in rising to the occasion in Fournette's absence, rushing for 109 yards and catching five passes for 31 yards and a touchdown without Fournette around. 


But with a back like Fournette showing signs of making a comeback in Week 3, it's probably time for fantasy owners to move on from any emotional ties they may have created with what was likely a waiver wire pickup in Yeldon after Week 1 and focus back on a healthy Fournette.
