Travis Etienne Jr.'s Touches To Be Scaled Back?

Wednesday, February 28, 2:04 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne Jr.'s 325 touches last year were third-most in the NFL for a RB, but head coach Doug Pederson said that Etienne as a workhorse back "is not the recipe" he prefers. Pederson mentioned that D'Ernest Johnson was injured in 2023, and Tank Bigsby was learning as a rookie. The head coach said he'd consider knocking some of Etienne's reps down next season in order to keep him healthy over the course of the year. All in all, the 25-year-old topped 1,000 rushing yards for the second time in his two NFL seasons, and he also improved as a pass-catcher with 58 catches for 476 yards. Etienne will remain the Jaguars' lead back and will be an RB1 target for fantasy managers, but you'll need to keep in mind that if the team has it their way, Etienne's total touches will be managed more.

Kendre Miller Returns From Seven-Game Absence, Leads Team In Rushing

Sunday, January 7, 5:18 PM

New Orleans Saints running back Kendre Miller missed a good chunk of the season with an ankle injury but returned to action for the first time since Week 9 to split backfield work with Jamaal Williams. Miller carried the ball 13 times for a team-high 73 yards and the first touchdown of his career. He also caught a pass for six yards. The rookie out of TCU was effective in his first time carrying the load and could carve out a role in the backfield heading into 2024.
