Leonard Fournette

Outlook: Fournette had a strong year on paper last season. He needs to find more consistency as he continues to grow within the Jaguars' offense. Last year's fourth overall pick will continue to serve up stiff arms and wave at opposing defenders for the foreseeable future.

Kaye's Take (Staying or Going?): He will be back ... Yes.

T.J. Yeldon

Outlook: Yeldon showed that he could be a strong third-down running back during the second half of last season. He should be the top backup at running back this year.

Kaye's Take (Staying or Going?): Entering his fourth season, Yeldon is in need of a big year. He will be a free agent next offseason, so he will have to prove he can be more consistent in what could be his final year in Jacksonville.


Corey Grant

Outlook: Set to become a restricted free agent in March, Grant put on a show during the first half of the AFC Championship Game last month. If he returns, Grant should be primed for a larger role on offense. Grant is also one of the best special teams players on the roster.

Kaye's Take (Staying or Going?): Grant will be back next season. He will continue to work as the team's starting kick returner. He will also get a shot at being an offensive weapon.

Tommy Bohanon

Outlook: The "Texans Killer" was the lead blocker on the NFL's top rushing offense. The veteran fullback also scored three regular-season touchdowns against Houston, an AFC South rival.

Kaye's Take (Staying or Going?): Bohanon should return to Jacksonville next season. He will probably face some form of competition during the offseason.
