Player Outlook
It was a tale of two seasons for Etienne. In the first half of the season, Etienne challenged for RB1 overall and averaged 106.2 yards per game and over 22 touches. After the Jaguars' Week 9 bye week, Etienne had just one RB1 (top 12) and he finished outside the RB2 range (top 24) in five of his last nine games with just four total touchdowns scored. There is early talk of Tank Bigsby taking a mental leap in OTAs. If Bigsby cuts into Etienne's workload, it will be difficult for Etienne to return value at his current ADP. Etienne is coming off the board early in the third round of Fantasy drafts.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Workload to decline?

    Doug Pederson said during OTAs that the Jaguars want to lean on Etienne less during the 2024 campaign in order to keep him healthy, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports. Pederson said it's "hard to put necessarily a rep count" on Etienne's weekly touches, but that looking ahead to 2024 season the coaching staff is "making sure [Tank Bigsby] gets opportunities to get out there and take some of the pounding off of [Etienne]." As DiRocco notes, Etienne finished 2023 accounting for 76 percent of the running back touches for Jacksonville, a high workload that coincided with a disappointing rookie showing for Bigsby. If either D'Ernest Johnson or Bigsby can emerge as a more consistent backup, fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if Etienne's total touches do indeed decrease this season. While that would certainly represent a blow to Etienne's fantasy ceiling, the 2021 first-round pick does his damage more with efficiency and speed than grinding out carries between the tackles. Jacksonville picked up Etienne's fifth-year option earlier this offseason, which keeps him under contract through 2025.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Fifth-year option picked up

    The Jaguars officially exercised Etienne's fifth-year option Monday. GM Trent Baalke said Saturday that Jacksonville would pick up the fifth-year options of both Etienne and quarterback Trevor Lawrence, and the team has now made both moves official. Since missing his entire rookie season due to a Lisfranc injury, Etienne has compiled back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing campaigns and totaled 17 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Now signed through the 2025 season, Etienne is locked in atop Jacksonville's backfield for the next two years, with Tank Bigsby and D'Ernest Johnson available to back him up.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: To get fifth-year option

    GM Trent Baalke said Saturday that the Jaguars will exercise the fifth-year option on Etienne's rookie contract, John Shipley of SI.com reports. The same can be said for fellow 2021 first-round pick Trevor Lawrence, which will become official by Thursday's deadline to lock in such options. After getting drafted three years ago, Etienne's pro debut was delayed due to a Lisfranc injury during the preseason in August 2021, but he's since rushed for more than 1,000 yards in both of the last two seasons while racking up 93 catches for 792 yards in 34 regular-season contests. He'll continue to lead Jacksonville's backfield for the next two campaigns ahead of Tank Bigsby once the aforementioned option is exercised.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Reaches 1,000 rushing yards

    Etienne rushed the ball 16 times for 57 yards in Sunday's 28-20 loss to the Titans. He added five receptions on six targets for 30 yards. Etienne was scripted out of rushing attempts in the second half with the Jaguars chasing the lead, though he still managed to top 1,000 rushing yards for the second time in as many pro seasons. He also matched his season high with five receptions -- his first such performance came in Week 1 -- and ended the campaign with 476 receiving yards and 58 receptions, both of which were significant improvements over his rookie season. Given his improvement in his second year, it's almost certain that Etienne will enter 2024 as Jacksonville's lead back with the chance to work effectively as both a rusher and pass catcher.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Standout performance in win

    Etienne rushed 16 times for 102 yards and two touchdowns and brought in both targets for 16 yards in the Jaguars' 26-0 win over the Panthers on Sunday. Stymied on the ground for an extended stretch of games, Etienne put together his second-highest rushing yardage tally of the season with a big lift from a 62-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter. Etienne added a one-yard scoring rush in the fourth quarter to close out the rout, marking his first multi-touchdown effort since Week 7. Etienne will aim to help the Jaguars lock up a playoff berth in Week 18 on the road against the Titans.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Held to 31 yards on nine touches

    Etienne rushed six times for 12 yards and caught all three of his targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 30-12 loss to the Buccaneers. Etienne saw his touch count decrease for the third week in a row, but this time it was due to an undesirable game script that had the Jaguars starting the second half down 20-0. The Clemson product didn't help the situation when given opportunities, finishing with a per-carry average well below 4.0 yards for the fourth time over his last five starts. Etienne's fantasy value is heavily tied to his usage, and his recent decline in touches makes him a riskier play than usual against Carolina on Dec. 31.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Tallies 10th touchdown

    Etienne rushed the ball 14 times for 35 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Browns. He added four receptions on four targets for 37 yards. Etienne played through a rib injury that had him questionable leading up to Sunday's contest and accounted for 14 of the team's 17 touches by running backs. He was inefficient with those touches by averaging just 2.5 yards per carry, though he did manage a long run of 16 yards midway through the first quarter and also found the end zone on a one-yard dive late in the third quarter -- his 10th total score of the campaign. Etienne was also encouragingly involved as a pass catcher and has exactly four receptions in each of his last three games. While his workload isn't in question, he will face another tough defense in a Week 15 matchup against the Ravens.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Expected to play against Cleveland

    Etienne (ribs) is likely to play against the Browns on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Etienne has been dealing with an injury to his ribs since getting hurt against Houston in Week 12, but he was able to suit up last Monday in a loss to Cincinnati and appears set to do so again Sunday against Cleveland. The talented running back is likely to have quarterback Trevor Lawrence available to get the ball to him, as Lawrence is trending toward playing despite dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Etienne has only one 100-yard rushing game on his ledger this season, but he's established a reliable floor with at least 70 all-purpose yards in all but three of his 12 contests thus far.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Maintains limited practice activity

    Etienne (ribs) was a limited practice participant Thursday. Etienne doesn't appear to be any worse for the wear coming out of Monday's 34-31 overtime loss to the Bengals, despite being listed as questionable with the rib issue leading up to the contest before handling 15 touches (11 carries, four receptions) and accounting for 79 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown over his 43 snaps. The Jaguars have put a cap on Etienne's practice reps for both of their first two Week 14 practices, but there's been no indication that his restrictions are the result of any setback. He may still carry a designation into this weekend's game in Cleveland if he remains a limited participant in Friday's practice, but Etienne is still expected to be ready to lead the Jacksonville backfield come Sunday.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Still dealing with rib injury

    Etienne (ribs) was a limited practice participant Wednesday. Etienne played through the same injury Monday against Cincinnati, taking 15 touches for 79 yards and a touchdown in a game that saw quarterback Trevor Lawrence suffer a high-ankle sprain. The Jaguars haven't ruled Lawrence out for Sunday's game against Cleveland, but that could end up happening later in the week. If so, Etienne might be leaned on even more than usual, albeit within the context of a weaker-than-usual offense that's missing Lawrence, wideout Christian Kirk (core) and potentially left tackle Walker Little (hamstring).

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Scores TD prior to Lawrence injury

    Etienne (ribs) rushed 11 times for 45 yards and a touchdown while catching all four of his targets for 34 yards in Monday's 34-31 overtime loss to the Bengals. Etienne capped Jacksonville's first drive with a four-yard rushing touchdown but finished with his second-fewest rushing attempts and third-fewest rushing yards of the season, perhaps due to the lingering effects of the rib injury that limited his practice participation heading into the game. Trevor Lawrence (ankle) accounted for the team's next three scores with two passing touchdowns and a quarterback sneak prior to exiting in the fourth quarter. Etienne's 19-yard catch on a pass from backup quarterback C.J. Beathard helped set up a game-tying field goal in the final minute of regulation, but the Bengals kicked a game-winning field goal after Jacksonville failed to score on the first drive of overtime, dropping the Jaguars to 8-4 heading into a Week 14 road game against the Browns.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Questionable, expected to play

    Etienne (ribs) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Bengals, but head coach Doug Pederson is expecting the running back to play, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports. The injury designation leaves open the possibility Etienne could miss the primetime matchup, but Pederson seemed relatively confident following Saturday's practice the third-year back would be available. Expect the backup, D'Ernest Johnson, to still be a factor in the game plan, particularly if the Jaguars jump out to a commanding lead early on. Official confirmation regarding Etienne's status will arrive upon the release of Jacksonville's inactives ahead of the team's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff Monday.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Limited by rib issue

    Etienne was listed as a limited participant at practice Thursday due to a rib injury. Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson told Demetrius Harvey of The Florida Times-Union earlier Thursday that Etienne was day-to-day with a chest injury, but Mia O'Brien of 1010 XL 92.5 FM Jacksonville confirms that the running back is indeed managing a rib issue. Etienne now has two more chances to increase his practice participation ahead of Monday's game against the Bengals, but O'Brien notes that the Jaguars' leading rusher sounded encouraged Thursday regarding his Week 13 availability.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Day-to-day with chest injury

    Coach Doug Pederson said Thursday that Etienne (chest) is day-to-day, Demetrius Harvey of The Florida Times-Union reports. Pederson said Etienne will practice Thursday, which is a positive sign. The elusive running back managed to play through his chest injury during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Texans, though he briefly left the field in the first half. Fantasy managers will need to closely monitor Etienne's practice reps heading into Monday's primetime matchup against the Bengals. If Etienne ends up missing any time due to the injury, veteran D'Ernest Johnson and rookie Tank Bigsby could get a chance to show what they can do with a significant backfield workload.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Inefficient after injury scare

    Etienne rushed 20 times for 56 yards while catching four of six targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Texans. Etienne exited for a few minutes in the first half to be evaluated for a chest injury, per Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network, but he returned to the game and was stuffed from the 1-yard line on the final play before halftime. Jacksonville worked it down to the 1-yard line again in the third quarter, and Etienne was again denied on first-and-goal before the Jaguars went to the air for a go-ahead Calvin Ridley touchdown. Etienne has at least 17 touches in nine of 11 games as the clear top option in Jacksonville's backfield; however, he has exceeded 56 rushing yards only once in his last six games heading into a Week 13 home contest against the Bengals on Monday Night Football.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Checks back into Week 8 game

    Etienne returned to Sunday's game against the Steelers after leaving for a brief spell in the third quarter to be evaluated for an ankle injury, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports. After limping off the field on the Jaguars' first possession of the third quarter, Etienne headed into the medical tent on the sideline to get his ankle checked out. Tank Bigsby came off the bench and fumbled on his third carry of the drive, but Etienne received the green light to return to the field on the Jaguars' ensuing possession. Etienne looks like he'll be able to finish the game as Jacksonville's top back, and the team's upcoming Week 9 bye should afford him some extra time for his ankle to heal up.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Injures ankle, return uncertain

    Etienne was diagnosed with an ankle injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Steelers and is questionable to return. Etienne carried 15 times for 61 yards and caught one of two targets for an 11-yard gain before limping off the field following a play on the Jaguars' first possession of the second half. The extent of his ankle injury isn't known, but if Etienne is unable to finish the contest, the Jaguars will get by with Tank Bigsby, D'Ernest Johnson and JaMycal Hasty as their running backs for the rest of the day.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Two more touchdowns in win

    Etienne rushed 14 times for 53 yards and two touchdowns and secured three of five targets for 24 yards in the Jaguars' 31-24 win over the Saints on Thursday night. Etienne found the end zone from two and 17 yards out in the first and second quarters, respectively, giving him his third consecutive multi-touchdown game. The third-year back did often find running room at a premium against a tough Saints defensive front seven, as he gained just 36 yards on the 13 other carries outside of his second scoring scamper. Etienne has been at 55 rushing yards or less in three of his last four games, but his recent touchdown output has his fantasy stock surging heading into a Week 8 road matchup against the Steelers on Sunday, Oct. 29.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Contained by Falcons

    Etienne rushed 20 times for 55 yards and caught all three of his targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 23-7 win over the Falcons. Etienne struggled to find much room to run, with his long gain on the ground going for just seven yards. While he's yet to put together consecutive big games this season, Etienne garnered 23 touches for the third time in four appearances. His consistent role offers a decent floor ahead of the Bills' trip to London to play the Jags in Week 5.

  • Jaguars' Travis Etienne: Avoids injury report

    Etienne (cramps) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report ahead of Sunday's game against Houston. Etienne missed out on a few snaps in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Chiefs after experiencing cramping, though it probably didn't cost him many fantasy points with Jacksonville looking to throw at that point. He'll continue as the team's lead back in the home opener this Sunday after taking 30 of the 39 running back carries and eight of the 10 targets in two straight road games to start the season. Etienne's 76 percent snap share through two weeks is similar to what he handled in most games last season after the Jaguars traded James Robinson to the Jets.
