Ervin returned one kick for 20 yards and two punts for six yards in Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Texans.
Starter Leonard Fournette was the only running back to receive a carry Sunday as the Jaguars continue to heavily rely on their workhorse back. Ervin should primarily remain in a special teams role, barring an injury to Fournette or backup Ryquell Armstead.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The Texans used a fourth-round pick on Ervin in 2016 and are still waiting for return on that investment two years later. He was the primary return man on both punts and kicks during his rookie season, but exhibited ball-security problems. In 2017, he was poised to add third-down back to his special-teams role. He had 10 targets over the first two weeks before his season was cut short by a torn patellar tendon in Week 4. There's still a need for both roles entering 2018, so much depends on the health of his knee. In a passing-oriented offense with the dynamic Deshaun Watson, Ervin could emerge has a receiving threat, however, he'll be no better than third on backfield depth chart behind Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue to open the season. Ervin's roster spot could be in jeopardy by mid-season if D'Onta Forearm, who begins the campaign on the PUP list with an Achilles injury, is ultimately activated.
Ervin spent most of his rookie season on special teams, leading the Texans in punt and kick returns. Head coach Bill O'Brien never really gave him a shot on offense. And why would he, with Lamar Miller having a career season. Ervin's role shouldn't change too much in 2017. The Texans do feel that he can be a playmaker in the return game.
Ervin, a fourth-round draft pick in 2016, was an explosive back during his time at San Jose State but also improved as a receiver during his final two years with the Spartans. His big-play ability is what attracted the Texans, however, we don't see him making too much of an impact on offense early in his NFL career. Where you might hear about Ervin is in the return game. Boasting a 4.41 40-time, Ervin was a four-year kick returner at San Jose State and added punt returning to his resume the last two seasons, scored five touchdowns on special teams.
