2.06 – Tavien Feaster (RB – JAX)

While much of the dynasty community is in on James Robinson as a potential Leonard Fournette successor, very few are talking about the arguably equally as talented Tavien Feaster. This may be because his best season came two years ago when Feaster was a true sophomore at Clemson, but he has showed enough burst at his size to suggest he could be a serviceable NFL running back.

After splitting carries evenly in 2017, he fell firmly behind Travis Etienne in 2018, something that caused him to transfer to South Carolina for his senior season. He remained in a timeshare as a Gamecock, but was the lead back in the committee with Rico Dowdle. It was disappointing that he was unable to build on the success of his sophomore season, but showed enough to warrant an extended look as a depth piece with spot starter upside.

While he has the upside to ascend to the number two running back in Jacksonville, he does not project as a long-term NFL starter. A physical runner with good contact balance, Feaster does have starter ability, but is someone that would be preferable as a between the tackles power complement to a smaller lead back. Feaster is someone to stash on taxi squads in the deepest of leagues.
