Jordan Todman rushed three times for six yards and caught one pass for five yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss at Philadelphia.
Todman got a lot of reps in passing situations. It's unclear if that was planned or as a result of Toby Gerhart's ankle issues. Regardless, Todman is behind Denard Robinson for primary backup duties and is therefore well off the fantasy radar. Sep 7 - 6:02 PM

Jordan Todman had five carries for three yards in Friday night's preseason game, adding three catches for 32 yards.

Todman saw time with the first team and spelled Toby Gerhart on third downs in the first quarter. He's considered the Jaguars' best pass protector and has locked up the No. 2 running back. Todman would likely be used in a committee if Gerhart went down. He has 25 touches for 88 yards through three preseason games.

ESPN Jaguars reporter Michael DiRocco believes Jordan Todman has "locked up" the No. 2 running back job.

If so, it's certainly not because of his preseason performances; he's averaging less than 2.0 YPC. DiRocco reports Todman has had a "very good camp" and is easily the team's best pass protector behind Toby Gerhart. Denard Robinson and rookie Storm Johnson have been impressive runners. They don't have the experience in blitz pickup. If Gerhart went down, it'd likely be a committee.

Spending time with both the first- and second-team offense, Jordan Todman rushed eight times for just 18 yards in Thursday's game against the Bears.

Todman did manage to add three receptions for 24 yards, but it was not an impressive performance. The only time he stood out as a runner was when he failed to secure a Blake Bortles handoff late in the second quarter. Todman ran well ahead of Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson this evening, but that may not be the case for Jacksonville's third preseason game. The battle to handcuff Toby Gerhart has not been settled.

Jordan Todman rushed for five yards on five carries and caught a six-yard pass in Friday night's preseason opener against the Bucs.

Todman got the start in the backfield with Toby Gerhart (hip) sidelined. He was blown up early for a five-yard loss before picking up five yards shortly after. That was about all the action Todman saw. Denard Robinson (7-36-1 rushing line) was impressive against the Bucs' backups and may give Todman a run for his money as Gerhart's change-of-pace complement.
Aug 8 - 11:16 PM

Jordan Todman appears to have a "solid hold" on the No. 2 running back job.

Todman's strong start to camp has him ahead of Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson. The winner of this battle will be a change-of-pace option behind Toby Gerhart, who is expected to touch the ball 20-plus times a game.

Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch made it clear he envisions Jordan Todman as a "change of pace" back.

Toby Gerhart detractors have suggested Todman might pose a threat to Gerhart's workload or even his starting job, but Fisch doesn't seem to agree. "Those two guys are truly change-of-pace backs," Fisch said of Todman and Denard Robinson, who are vying for the pace-change role behind Gerhart. Fisch did praise Todman's "burst, speed and acceleration." Gerhart lacks a clear handcuff with Todman, Robinson, and Storm Johnson all competing for backup duties.
Jul 20 - 2:44 PM

Jordan Todman is expected to be the Jaguars' kick returner again this season.

Todman averaged 27.4 yards per on 26 kick returns last season, good for seventh in the league. Second-round rookie Marqise Lee returned kicks at USC and could provide competition for Todman this summer. Ace Sanders and Tandon Doss are expected to compete for punt return duties.
Jul 9 - 1:29 PM

Jaguars re-signed exclusive rights free agent RB Jordan Todman to a one-year, $645,000 contract.

Todman appeared in all 16 games and made two starts last season, rushing for 256 yards and two touchdowns on 76 carries. He also reeled in 14 passes for 116 yards and a score. Todman currently projects as the Jaguars' No. 2 back behind Toby Gerhart, but Denard Robinson could push for an expanded role.
Apr 18 - 9:27 AM

Jaguars tendered an offer to exclusive rights free agent RB Jordan Todman.

He'll earn $645,000. With free agent Maurice Jones-Drew unlikely to be re-signed, Todman currently sits atop the Jags' depth chart. He showed plus burst around the edge on 76 carries last season but averaged just 3.4 YPC. Todman also turned 14 catches into 116 yards and a score. He'll undoubtedly face competition, but there is an outside chance Todman could open the 2014 season as Jacksonville's starting tailback. He has some Dynasty value.

Updating previous items, Jaguars RB Jordan Todman is an exclusive rights free agent this offseason.

Todman has only one "accrued year" (six-plus games of service time) in the NFL despite entering as a sixth-round pick in the 2011 draft. So he's actually two years away from restricted free agency. It's a big difference because the Jaguars can retain Todman at the NFL minimum salary for 2014. Were he a RFA, Todman would've cost $1.389 million -- at least -- for the Jags to tender.
Feb 9 - 4:53 PM

Jordan Todman rushed twice for three yards and caught a 12-yard pass in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Colts.

Although it wasn't quite a breakout season, Todman finishes 2013 with career highs in carries (76), rushing yards (256), all-purpose touchdowns (3), and receptions (14), establishing himself as a viable NFL change-of-pace back. There is an outside chance the former Big East Offensive Player of the Year will be in the mix to start for Jacksonville in 2014 if Maurice Jones-Drew isn't retained, though Todman would surely face stiff competition. He's more of a role player. Todman is an impending restricted free agent.

Jordan Todman was held to six yards on six carries in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Titans.

He added one catch for five yards on two targets. Todman was mixed in behind Maurice Jones-Drew and used in a change-of-pace role. The Jaguars' offense isn't effective enough to support two running backs and Todman failed to do anything with his limited carries. He'll remain on the lesser half of a timeshare with Jones-Drew in the regular season finale against the Colts in Week 17.

Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) is starting Sunday's game against the Titans.

Beat writer Hays Carlyon has had a good read on this situation recently, especially from a fantasy perspective. He expects Jones-Drew to get around 16 touches and Jordan Todman to be limited to 8-10. That projection assumes the Jags are going to sustain drives and get their running backs around 25 total touches, which is certainly no sure thing. Ideally, owners will simply avoid this timeshare because the upside is capped.

Jordan Todman rushed for 109 yards on 25 carries in Jacksonville's Week 15, 27-20 loss to the Bills.

Todman got the start in place of an injured Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) and added four catches for 44 yards on a team-high eight targets. He handled the ball 29 times, while Denard Robinson chipped in just two carries. The Jaguars featured Todman around the edges, showing off his excellent speed. The only thing missing for fantasy owners was a touchdown. Todman definitely has some talent. MJD will look to test his hammy out next week in practice. If he can't go, Todman will handle all of the work against a leaky Tennessee run defense.
