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.
Mar 7 - 10:47 AM

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.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 04:45:00 PM

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.

Jordan Todman is starting Sunday's Week 15 game against the Bills.

Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) is inactive. The Jags were already trying to get Todman some touches as part of a committee, so now they'll get to take a long look at him as a feature back. He gets to face the Bills' No. 26 run defense, is playing at home and beat writer Hays Carlyon is expecting 17-22 touches. Todman has struggled in limited regular season work, but did post a 22/223/2 line in the preseason.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 12:01:00 PM

Jordan Todman (shoulder) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Todman is in no danger of missing Sunday's game, but Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) is. That would leave Todman as the Jaguars' starter, and borderline RB2 against the Bills. MJD owners need to have Todman at the ready.
Thu, Dec 12, 2013 05:44:00 PM

Jordan Todman (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Todman is a guy to keep a close eye on this week with Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) in jeopardy of sitting out Week 15. Todman would draw the start in MJD's place. The shoulder isn't a major concern, and he should be fine.
Wed, Dec 11, 2013 06:43:00 PM

Jordan Todman will start Sunday's game against the Bills if Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) can't go.

The Jags were already talking up Todman as a committee partner to MJD. Now there's a real chance they get to evaluate him as a true feature back. Todman has more upside than most backups thanks to the 4.4 wheels he often put on display in the preseason when he rushed 29 times for 223 yards (7.68 YPC) with two touchdowns. The Bills' No. 26 run defense just got gashed for a 22/127/1 line by a similar back in Bobby Rainey, leaving Todman with flex appeal if MJD is inactive Sunday. Denard Robinson would be the change-of-pace back.

Jordan Todman rushed seven times for 14 yards in Jacksonville's Week 14 win over the Texans, adding one catch for a 21-yard touchdown.

Todman came on for an injured Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) midway through the fourth quarter, but promptly came down with a cramp, missing a series before returning. Four of Todman's seven carries came in clock-killing mode. His touchdown was a trick play where he caught a pass from WR Ace Sanders. With Justin Forsett (broken foot) still sidelined, Todman would likely get the start in Week 15 against the Bills if MJD can't go. He'd be little more than a low-end FLEX play.
Fri, Dec 6, 2013 12:24:00 AM

Jordan Todman rushed for 31 yards on five carries in Week 13 versus Cleveland.

Todman added one catch for 12 yards on two targets. The one he didn't catch, Todman probably could have picked up close to 20 yards on a third-and-16 screen pass. As a runner, Todman showed significantly more burst than teammate Maurice Jones-Drew, especially around the edge. Todman will continue to get 6-10 touches on a weekly basis as Jones-Drew's change-of-pace complement.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 05:45:00 PM

Jordan Todman rushed 11 times for 31 yards in Jacksonville's Week 12 win over the Texans, adding one catch for five yards.

Todman was a breather back for Maurice Jones-Drew, coming in for roughly 1-2 snaps per series. An extremely low-end handcuff, there's little reason for Todman to be owned in 12-14 team leagues.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 06:17:00 PM

Jaguars RB Jordan Todman rushed three times for 11 yards and a touchdown and caught a two-yard pass in a Week 10 win over Tennessee.

Ordinarily the Jaguars' kickoff returner and third-string tailback, Todman received a slight bump in offensive playing time following a Denard Robinson fumble. Todman does not maintain fantasy value in standard scoring systems.
