2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sometimes, a player is just a great fit for a team's personality. A 220-pounder who runs with good power and a strong motor who never quits, Armstead is the kind of back who could thrive in a smashmouth offense like the one the Jaguars hope to feature. He doesn't possess great vision or patience, but his burst allows him to widen a hole if he didn't wait long enough for it to fully develop, and while he's more slippery than elusive, he can avoid getting squared up and gain yards after contact as a result. The fifth-round pick out of Temple is a solid blocker but doesn't offer much as a receiver, so his role could be limited to giving Leonard Fournette a breather, rather than serving as a true complementary piece to Jacksonville's starter. If Fournette should break down again, Armstead profiles as an upgrade on Alfred Blue for early downs. Read Past Outlooks

Cleared from concussion

Armstead cleared the concussion protocol, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.
Armstead suffered the injury in the preseason opener and missed the following game. He should be back for Thursday's exhibition against Jacksonville to battle for backup work behind Leonard Fournette. Alfred Blue's expected absence due to an ankle injury frees up more reps for Armstead, Thomas Rawls, Devante Mays and Elijah Hood. Based on the division of playing time the past two weeks, Blue appeared to have a lead for the No. 2 role.
