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 would instantly vault into the fantasy equation. Read Past Outlooks

October 15, 2019
Armstead had a one-yard run during Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Saints.
ANALYSIS
Armstead had a solid outing in Denver in Week 4 but has just three touches for seven yards in the two games since. Starter Leonard Fournette is averaging an incredible 28 touches per game over the last three weeks, leaving the Temple product with little to do. Until that trend breaks, it'd be dangerous to count on Armstead, even with the league's worst run defense, Cincinnati, on tap for Week 7.
