JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars' one-two running back punch of Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory has been pretty good through the first four games of the 2017 season.

Good enough to be ranked the league's second-best backfield tandem according to ESPN Insider Field Yates.

Fournette and Ivory come in just behind Atlanta's Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, who are accounting for 42.8 percent of the Falcons' yards from scrimmage. The two Falcons have combined for 699 yards and six touchdowns rushing and receiving.

Fournette is fourth in the NFL in yards from scrimmage (410) and Ivory has added 187. Fournette has rushed for 285 yards and three touchdowns and caught 12 passes for 125 yards and one touchdown. Ivory has rushed for 118 yards and caught seven passes for 69 yards.

Among the backfield tandems that finish behind Fournette and Ivory in the rankingsInsider are Chicago's Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen and Tennessee's DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry.
