Player Outlook
There was early talk of Bigsby earning a significant role as the No. 2 option behind Travis Etienne as a rookie but he was ultimately surpassed on the depth chart by D'Ernest Johnson. Bigsby has gotten more work with the first-team offense in early OTAs and if he has taken the leap, he projects as an interesting late-round option with upside in standard scoring formats as a preferred red-zone option. Consider him with a late-round pick in all formats.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Improving after rough rookie year

    Jaguars running backs coach Jerry Mack said Bigsby's offseason priority has been to "refocus," and that "now things are starting to slow down for him" entering Year 2, Juston Lewis of the Jacksonville Florida Times-Union reports. Coach Doug Pederson said back in May that the team hopes Bigsby will be able to spell starter Travis Etienne more often during the 2024 season, but for that to happen the 2023 third-round pick will need to improve upon a lackluster rookie performance. Last season, Bigsby logged just 50 carries for 132 yards (2.6 YPC) and two touchdowns across 17 games. Mack noted that as a rookie "everything was extremely fast for [Bigsby]," but said that this offseason "he's understanding the ins and outs of the offense a lot better." D'Ernest Johnson and rookie fifth-round pick Keilan Robinson could offer competition for the No. 2 role, but if Bigsby can indeed improve entering the 2024 campaign and retain a complementary role behind Etienne, he could provide value as a post-hype sleeper in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Could spell Etienne more often

    Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson said last week that he would like Bigsby to get more playing time to "take some of the pounding off of Travis [Etienne]," Demetrius Harvey of the Florida Times-Union reports. Jaguars brass made similar comments last offseason after drafting Bigsby in the third round, but he had just three games all season with more than three carries and none with more than 17 snaps. A pair of lost fumbles on his first 24 touches didn't help, and the Jaguars eventually preferred D'Ernest Johnson as the running back to give Etienne occasional breathers. While Johnson is back with the team in 2024, Bigsby's combination of draft capital, college production (2,903 rushing yards) and size (six-foot, 213 pounds) should allow him another shot to win the No. 2 role. Whether the Jaguars actually end up trusting him enough to take a significant chunk out of Etienne's workload is another question.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Quiet rookie campaign

    Bigsby rushed three times for 16 yards and returned four kickoffs for 99 yards during Jacksonville's Week 18 loss to Tennessee. He finished the season with 50 rushes for 132 yards and two touchdowns plus one catch for six yards. The rookie third-round pick opened and finished the season as the Jags' primary backup tailback, but he worked in the No. 3 role from Week 12 to Week 16. Starter Travis Etienne played in all 17 games and was the clear workhorse in the backfield, leaving minimal opportunities for Jacksonville's other backs. The only other running back on the roster, D'Ernest Johnson, is set to become a free agent, so Bigsby has a strong chance of opening 2024 in the No. 2 role once again.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Totals 32 yards in win

    Bigsby carried 10 times for 32 yards and wasn't targeted during Sunday's 26-0 win against the Panthers. The rookie third-round pick entered the contest having played just six offensive snaps over the previous five games, but he tallied a career-high 10 carries as Jacksonville dominated Sunday from start to finish. Bigsby out-snapped D'Ernest Johnson, 17-12, and may have reclaimed the No. 2 job in the Jaguars backfield heading into Week 18.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: No touches Week 13

    Bigsby played two offensive snaps during Monday's 34-31 loss to the Bengals. It's just the second time this season the rookie third-round pick didn't receive a carry, as D'Ernest Johnson has settled in as Jacksonville's No. 2 tailback the past few weeks. Travis Etienne remains locked in as the starter, leaving Bigsby in a depth role heading into the final month-plus of the campaign.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Falls into tertiary role

    Bigsby had one carry for six yards during Sunday's 24-21 win against the Texans. The rookie third-round pick played a season-low two offensive snaps and now appears to be clearly behind D'Ernest Johnson on the backfield depth chart. Bigsby has 36 carries for 86 yards and two touchdowns through his first 11 NFL games, but he's unlikely to see many opportunities down the stretch if Johnson and starter Travis Etienne stay healthy.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Does little with nine carries

    Bigsby rushed nine times for 21 yards during Sunday's 34-14 win over the Titans. Jacksonville was in control throughout Sunday's contest, which allowed Bigsby to set a season high in carries. The 22-year-old also set a season high in rushing yards, though it wasn't an efficient performance. D'Ernest Johnson had a similar workload with more yardage for the second straight week, and Bigsby could be losing his grip on the No. 2 job in Jacksonville's backfield.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Three carries Week 8

    Bigsby carried three times for nine yards and lost a fumble during Sunday's 20-10 win against the Steelers. The 22-year-old saw six offensive snaps as starter Travis Etienne received 27 touches for 149 yards and a touchdown while playing an 89 percent snap share. Etienne continues to operate as Jacksonville's workhorse back, leaving minimal opportunities for Bigsby in the No. 2 role.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Week 4 Waiver Priority List

    Bigsby hasn't done much to warrant starting for your Fantasy team, but I still want to stash him on my bench. If something happens to Travis Etienne, Bigsby could be a lottery ticket. He has two rushing touchdowns in three games for the Jaguars, but he's capable of being a three-down running back if given the chance. He's worth stashing for 1 percent of your FAB.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Scores TD in loss

    Bigsby rushed twice for 10 yards and a touchdown and failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's 37-17 loss to the Texans. The 22-year-old played just nine offensive snaps in the blowout loss, but he received some run early in the third quarter and punched in a one-yard touchdown after a long pass-interference penalty set up Jacksonville at the goal line. D'Ernest Johnson had a similar workload while starter Travis Etienne dominated the backfield with 23 touches for 138 yards from scrimmage. Bigsby has just nine carries for 23 yards through three games, though he's received some goal-line work with a pair of scores.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Sleeper RBs

    I'm expecting the Jaguars to be playing with a lead this week against the Colts, which should give Jacksonville the opportunity to use Bigsby in tandem with Travis Etienne. We saw in the preseason just how much the Jaguars like Bigsby, and he rewarded them by averaging 5.7 yards per carry in three games. Etienne remains a must-start running back in all leagues, but Bigsby could be a sneaky flex option in deeper formats.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Week 1 Waiver Priority List

    Bigsby is one of my favorite stash candidates this season since he'll be the No. 2 running back in Jacksonville behind Travis Etienne. We'll see how much he works in tandem with Etienne, and Bigsby looked impressive in the preseason when he averaged 5.7 yards per carry in three games. He could surprise us with his role in the passing game and work at the goal line, and Bigsby has lottery ticket appeal should anything happen to Etienne. I would add Bigsby for at least 5-10 percent of your remaining FAB budget if he's still on waivers.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Key fumble in preseason finale

    Bigsby rushed six times for 37 yards and lost a fumble in the Jaguars' 31-18 preseason win over the Dolphins on Saturday night. Bigsby took the third carry of the game for the Jaguars after Travis Etienne unsurprisingly logged the first two, and the former was impressive on a per-touch basis. However, the rookie made a critical mistake when he was stripped of the ball at the shadow of the goal line to short-circuit the Jaguars' first drive. Bigsby saw just one more carry after the miscue, but he did parlay that into a 14-yard gain. Despite the costly turnover, Bigsby averaged 5.7 yards per carry over three preseason contests and should serve as Etienne's primary backup beginning with a Week 1 road matchup against the Colts on Sunday, Sept. 10.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Paces backfield again

    Bigsby carried the ball 13 times for 70 yards in Saturday's 25-7 win over Detroit in preseason action. He also recorded one reception for -2 yards. Bigsby was the first back on the field for Jacksonville, though Travis Etienne didn't participate. He was effective with the opportunity, ripping off big gains of 17, 13 and 11 yards. Coach Doug Pederson has praised Bigsby throughout training camp, and the rookie back continues to take advantage of every opportunity.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Leads team in rushing

    Bigsby rushed nine times for 52 yards in Saturday's 28-23 preseason win over the Cowboys. Bigsby was already having a strong camp prior to Saturday's impressive rushing performance, drawing praise from coaches for his work in the film room. The rookie out of Auburn was the second back to enter the game behind Travis Etienne (five carries for 22 yards), so he hasn't jumped higher than potentially second on the depth chart as of now. With a 6-foot, 210-pound frame, Bigsby adds some size to Jacksonville's backfield, potentially warranting goal-line looks. The rookie's next chance to impress will come on the road against the Lions on Saturday.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Pushing for touches

    Coach Doug Pederson said Saturday that Bigsby has been "a sponge" when it comes to learning the offense, John Shipley of SI.com reports. The rookie third-round pick made a strong impression in rookie camp and has performed similarly in training camp. Travis Etienne was Jacksonville's workhorse tailback last season after James Robinson was shipped to the Jets and is expected to have a similar role in 2023, but Bigsby could see consistent touches week-to-week if he continues to build on the early foundation he's laid.

  • Jaguars' Tank Bigsby: Added by Jacksonville in third round

    The Jaguars selected Bigsby in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 88th overall. Bigsby isn't a guarantee to back up Travis Etienne, especially in Week 1, but Bigsby ought to be able to displace JaMycal Hasty, D'Ernest Johnson and Snoop Conner early on in the 2023 season. Whether the Auburn product can amount to much more than that is less clear, but Bigsby was reasonably productive in college (2,903 yards and 25 touchdowns on 540 carries) ,and his athleticism is no worse than average (4.56-second 40 at 6-feet, 210 pounds).
