3. Give Yeldon a chance

When it comes to the most underrated players available in free agency, the argument can be made that T.J. Yeldon deserves to be near the top of the list since when given the opportunity, the running back tends to shine.

Over the last two seasons, Yeldon has come up big on numerous occasions for the Jacksonville Jaguars whenever Leonard Fournette was out, and while the 901 yards from scrimmage with five touchdowns don’t stand out like other running backs available, it’s still impressive.

If Fournette wasn’t so much of a workhorse at running back, there’s a good chance that Yeldon’s numbers would have been a little higher, but all that matters moving forward is he finds ways to contribute on his next team, which could even end up being the Eagles.

Just like a few other running backs previously discussed, what makes Yeldon an attractive option to consider is the fact that he would be unselfish over sharing carries, and has proven on numerous occasions to be valuable at receiver as well.

Plus, for all Yeldon knows, an opportunity to join Philadelphia could put him in better position to compete for the starting job at running back, which would be awesome for him after all this time.
