Huddle Up: He'll miss the entire season, but he's worth stashing in dynasty formats.

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Aug. 24.
Huddle Up: The move officially ends Etienne's season before it can even get started. While the good news is that this injury happened in August, Lisfranc injuries can be tricky and might affect his burst even into next season. The bad news for his fantasy managers is that a player they likely invested a fifth- or sixth-round pick in this summer turns out to be a wasted pick. James Robinson should vault up boards as a result of this injury, although it would be premature to expect a repeat of last season with Carlos Hyde around to steal a few snaps.

Updating earlier reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) will miss a minimum of 12 weeks with a significant tear of his plantar fascia. He'll have surgery as soon as possible with a chance to come back later in the season.
Huddle Up: Carlos Hyde has RB3 value in PPR formats, and James Robinson looks to be a strong RB2 with staying power. Etienne can be stashed in keeper leagues.

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) will have tests Tuesday, Aug. 24, that will likely determine how long he's out with a Lisfranc injury. X-rays were negative, which leads belief that it's just a sprain.
Huddle Up: Carlos Hyde's value catapults for at least the first four weeks as it will take some time before Etienne will be full speed when he's healthy. View Hyde as a PPR flex option for the foreseeable future. Etienne still has a chance to be an RB3 in PPR leagues when it's all said and done with a speedy recovery. James Robinson's value doesn't change all that much, but he could have a longer shelf life with Etienne up against the 8-ball entering the year.

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) sustained a mid-foot sprain during the team's game Monday, Aug. 23, and is expected to be sidelined indefinitely, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: Obviously this isn't great news for Etienne, but minus a more concrete timeframe for recovery it would premature to significantly adjust his value. Keep an eye out for news on Etienne's condition, though bear in mind that NFL teams aren't obligated to provide much in the way of injury updates during the preseason.

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) was spotted in a walking boot after the game against the New Orleans Saints on Monday, Aug. 23, and is scheduled to undergo further testing after the team returns home from New Orleans, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: Etienne has seen surprisingly little work this preseason and this isn't going to help his readiness for the season. Until the severity of his injury is known, it is pointless to speculate what it will mean to his fantasy value for the season. Based on his usage this month, however, it seems as though he needs to be viewed as more of a low-end RB3 or RB4 rather than a strong flex option.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) is listed as questionable to return after suffering a foot injury versus the New Orleans Saints on Monday, Aug. 23.
Huddle Up: Etienne was spotted on the sideline late in the second quarter, so the odds are the injury isn't serious even though he was spotted walking with a limp. Stay tuned in the coming days for more updates. If the injury is more serious than expected, James Robinson would likely see a significant spike in work.

Jacksonville Jaguars first-round pick RB Travis Etienne agreed to terms on his rookie, four-year deal Monday, July 19. Financial terms weren't disclosed, but the deal includes a fifth-year option. The deal also includes no offset language.
Huddle Up: Etienne is an RB3 option in PPR that could boom or fizzle. Watch him in camp to get a better feel on his trajectory in the pros.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne will be used in multiple roles in order to create big plays for a Jacksonville offense that ranked last in the NFL with 16 plays of 20 yards or more in 2020.
Huddle Up: Head coach Urban Meyer has already made it clear that Etienne will be used as both a running back and a receiver, and while sharing touches with James Robinson will lead to inconsistent results, his big-play speed will make him a flex option with upside as a rookie.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne will take all of his rookie minicamp repetitions at wide receiver, Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer said Saturday, May 15. 'Worst-case scenario you have a running back that's elite with receiver skills,' Meyer said.
Huddle Up: Etienne caught 48 passes for 588 yards and a pair of TDs as a senior at Clemson and looks to at least have a rookie role as a pass-catcher to complement sophomore James Robinson. He's pushing for flex consideration in PPR leagues.
