Allen Hurns - WRPosted 7/16/17 6:53pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns is one of Jacksonville's most consistent receivers, according to John Oehser of Jaguars.com, and Oehser believes Hurns will be a 'big factor' in the passing game this season.
Huddle Up: Hurns was one of the biggest busts in fantasy circles last season, but he had 10 touchdowns just a couple of years ago. He should still be the No. 2 or No. 3 option in the passing game, and Hurns is worth taking a chance on as a WR5.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 7/13/17 2:07pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson caught just four of his ten targets inside the 10 yard line last season. Fortunately, all four of those catches were touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Robinson is the Jaguars' best threat close to the end zone. He was tied for fourth in the NFL in targets inside the 10 yard line; he simply didn't capitalize on the opportunities. Plus, he has somewhat of an errant quarterback in Blake Bortles. Despite a disappointing 2016 campaign, Robinson remains a solid low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 consideration, although he's a more sensible selection in standard formats.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 7/6/17 7:44pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee will likely be given the opportunity to win the No. 2 receiver job because of his big-play ability, according to Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com.
Huddle Up: Lee enjoyed a bit of a breakout season last year, and if he opens the year with a prominent role in the passing attack, WR3 production isn't out of the question.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 6/21/17 11:35am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has committed 63 turnovers over the last three seasons, which is the most in the NFL. His 51 interceptions during that span ranks second among quarterbacks.
Huddle Up: Bortles has thrown at least 16 interceptions in all three seasons since joining the NFL but has also thrown 58 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Bortles is a risky option for owners because of his turnovers and probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 6/18/17 1:16pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns likely will line up as a slot receiver in 2017, in the opinion of the Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran.
Huddle Up: Hurns is coming off a disappointing 2016 season where he missed five games and posted only 477 yards and three touchdowns. Hurns should have a solid role in the passing game if he is healthy this season and could be considered a No. 5 receiver in some fantasy leagues.
Dede Westbrook - WRPosted 6/16/17 7:27pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (undisclosed) returned to OTAs on a limited basis this weekend, performing individual drills but observing team drills.
Huddle Up: Although the exact nature of his injury remains a mystery, it sounds like Westbrook is making progress. The Heisman finalist has game-breaking speed, but it may take him a while to carve out a meaningful role. He is just a stash candidate in keeper leagues at this point.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 6/14/17 9:42pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said that the team is 'sick and tired of being below average' and 'not being successful when we feel as though we have the ability to be a good team.' He added: 'We haven't been. It's time to make a change. It's not going to happen overnight. You have to go do something about it.'
Huddle Up: The Jaguars, especially Bortles, had a lot of promise going into last season, only to end up falling far, far below expectations. The 2014 No. 3 overall draft pick will be entering the most important season of his career, as another disappointing campaign would most likely end his tenure as the starter in Jacksonville. He may become a reliable option again in fantasy down the line, but out of the gate, Bortles won't be a recommended starter for owners in most leagues.
Mychal Rivera - TEPosted 6/11/17 8:04pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Mychal Rivera has been seeing starter-level snaps during OTAs, and head coach Doug Marrone praised Rivera for his dependability. '[Rivera] is a player that makes the plays he should make,' Marrone said.
Huddle Up: Rivera looks like the frontrunner to pick up the targets that went to Julius Thomas the last two years, but considering how sparingly Thomas was utilized, there is no reason to expect Rivera to have any more value.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 6/10/17 9:46am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (undisclosed) missed some practice time this week because of an undisclosed injury but participated in practice Friday, June 9, and should be a full participant during the mandatory minicamp next week.
Huddle Up: Ivory probably will compete for the No. 2 running back job during training camp and would see limited touches if he wins that job. Owners in most leagues probably should look for other options and can avoid Ivory.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 6/9/17 3:25pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (undisclosed) is expected to miss the mandatory minicamp next week because of an undisclosed injury. Yeldon has missed all of the organized team activities this offseason.
Huddle Up: Yeldon likely will compete with Chris Ivory for the No. 2 running back job during training camp. He probably will see limited touches if he is not starting and can be avoided in most leagues.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 6/5/17 7:15am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory continues to run with the first-team offense as rookie RB Leonard Fournette works with the second-team group in organized team activities. While most projections place Fournette in the starting role, with RB T.J. Yeldon as the third-down back, Ivory remains focused on the task at hand. Ivory also noted he will not shy away from helping Fournette learn the ropes. Head coach Doug Marrone stated Fournette will need to earn his spot.
Huddle Up: It's June ... don't get hung up on labels and who is working with whom just yet. The Jags did not invest so much in Fournette to heavily play Ivory unless they have to turn his direction. Fournette is a so-so RB2, while Ivory doesn't belong on fantasy rosters at this time.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 5/27/17 12:29pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns said he knows he has to play better than he did in 2016 and has been working to improve during the offseason. Hurns has added some weight but has cut his body fat. He has also worked on improving his change of direction during routes and has been strengthening his legs to help avoid hamstring injuries.
Huddle Up: Hurns struggled with injuries in 2016 and finished with 35 receptions and 477 yards in 11 games. He likely will be a top three receiver for the Jaguars this upcoming season and should improve on his 2016 stats. He could be a No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 5/26/17 11:08am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette impressed head coach Doug Marrone with his ability to catch the ball during OTAs, according to 1010XL AM's Hays Carlyon.
Huddle Up: One of the questions on Fournette during the draft process was his ability to be a threat out of the backfield, although LSU didn't do him many favors by rarely ever using him as one (41 catches in three seasons). If the No. 4 overall pick earns the coaching staff's trust as a receiver and blocker, he should quickly emerge as an every-down back and potential low-end RB1 in fantasy.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 5/26/17 1:12pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory looks to be in much better shape than he was in last season, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: Ivory likely will be competing for the No. 2 job during training camp with Leonard Fournette on the team. He likely will receive limited touches if he makes the 53-man roster and probably would only be a late-round pick in deeper leagues.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 5/21/17 6:02pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was more effective running behind a fullback in college, and beat writer Ryan O'Halloran believes Fournette's biggest adjustment in the NFL will be receiving carries out of the shotgun and not regularly having a fullback.
Huddle Up: While Fournette will have to adjust to running out of some shotgun sets, the Jaguars have already added a couple of fullbacks after not carrying one on the roster last year. After Jacksonville spent the No. 4 pick on Fournette, the rookie should see all the carries he can handle. At worst, he should be a volume-based RB2.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 5/17/17 12:57pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette signed his four-year deal with the Jaguars Wednesday, May 17, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Fournette likely will be the starting running back for the Jaguars in 2017 and should receive most of the carries during games. He should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most leagues as long as he can stay healthy.
Dede Westbrook - WRPosted 5/16/17 10:07am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook signed his four-year rookie deal Tuesday, May 16. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Westbrook may struggle for targets in Jacksonville behind Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns. He's more of a late-round flier in deeper leagues in his first season in the NFL.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 5/13/17 10:37am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone believes there is 'no doubt' the way QB Blake Bortles is throwing the ball this offseason 'has improved'.
Huddle Up: As always, major improvement in correcting a fundamental is only good if it sticks when a quarterback is facing a live pass rush, so owners need to play the wait-and-see game at least until preseason action gets underway. Bortles spent his offseason working with quarterback guru Adam Dedeaux, and it should be noted he worked hard on his mechanics prior to his breakout 2015 season, so there is reason for hope. Bortles is a high-upside QB2 who should be available late in drafts.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 5/13/17 2:45pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette will need to earn the starting running back job during offseason workouts and training camp even though he was the team's first-round pick, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars have Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon on the roster but Fournette should be considered the leading candidate for the starting job and likely will receive most of the carries in 2017. Owners in most leagues should consider Fournette a No. 2 or No. 3 running back if he starts.
Rashad Greene - WRPosted 5/10/17 11:45am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook will compete with WR Rashad Greene for the slot receiver job as well as the punt returner role. Westbrook may be the favorite for the job because the team likes his quickness and sudden change of direction.
Huddle Up: Westbrook was successful during his career at Oklahoma and could have a decent role in the passing game as a rookie. Owners will need to keep an eye on the competition because Westbrook could have some value in deeper leagues. He could be a solid option in keeper leagues because his role should grow over the next few years.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 5/1/17 8:24am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles had his fifth-year option exercised Monday, May 1.
Huddle Up: Bortles regressed in his third year with 3,905 passing yards, 23 touchdowns and 16 INTs, but he's still just 25 years old. He'll be a low-end QB1 or a high-end QB2 option in fantasy.
Dede Westbrook - WRPosted 4/30/17 5:26pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook was kicked out of a 15- minute interview at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine.
Huddle Up: Add this to the list of off-the-field concerns for the explosive slot receiver. There's no denying Westbrook's talent, but with all the other red flags, he is only worth a flier in dynasty leagues.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 4/27/17 5:36pm ET
The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Louisiana State RB Leonard Fournette with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.
Huddle Up: Fournette likely will be the starting running back for the Jaguars as a rookie but will lose some playing time if Chris Ivory or T.J. Yeldon remains with the team. Owners in most fantasy leagues should consider him a No. 2 or No. 3 running back.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 4/27/17 6:07pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette's ideal playing weight is around 230 pounds, according to executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin, and Coughlin said he doesn't have any questions about Fournette being able to play all three downs.
Huddle Up: While it's encouraging to hear Fournette talked about as a three- down back, he will likely lose some touches to either Chris Ivory or T.J. Yeldon, and Jacksonville's offensive line isn't an elite unit. Consider him a low-end RB2 or RB3 for now.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 4/23/17 4:13pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said the team has not decided if they will pick up QB Blake Bortles' option this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars have a few more weeks to decide on Bortles' option, but he will have to play better if he wants a long-term deal from the Jaguars. He has thrown 69 touchdowns and 51 interceptions in his three years in the NFL and should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues in 2017.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 4/16/17 9:59am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will need to 'go back and build his foundation from the beginning,' according to head coach Doug Marrone. 'We told him (in January) we wanted him to make sure his arm was ready to go because there will be an increase in reps, which will help him. I?ve been with Drew (Brees) in New Orleans and obviously he?s a Hall of Fame-type quarterback and that?s the way we approached it with him and with the team. You start with the foundation and you look to see how fast they can work through the foundation,' Marrone said.
Huddle Up: Bortles has spent the offseason with quarterback guru Adam Dedeaux in California and is still waiting for the team to decide whether or not it will pick up his $18 million option for 2018 by the league deadline on May 3. Talent is not a question with Bortles, so a bounce-back season could be in order if he doesn't abandon his mechanics and the line plays better. He's a high-upside QB2 option for now.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 4/16/17 5:31pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson said he has 'earned' a contract extension but won't let talk of a new contract impact his performance. 'If we get something done, we do and if not, I have a big year coming ahead for me and I have an obligation to my teammates to play at a high level,' Robinson said.
Huddle Up: After a dominant 2015 season, Robinson was one of the biggest disappointments for fantasy owners last year. He still managed WR3 production, and he will be one of the top bounce-back candidates heading into 2017.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 3/26/17 10:05am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is unlikely to see his fifth-year option for 2018 picked up by May 2 - the deadline to do so - according to the Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars could easily select a quarterback on either one of the first two days of the draft in order to put some pressure on Bortles, but it seems more likely they will go all-in with him one more time and try to shore up some other weaknesses instead. Bortles, who is spending his offseason working on mechanics, is very much facing a pivotal year and should be considered little more than a high-upside QB2 in fantasy drafts this summer.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 3/20/17 11:09pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said he is 'confident' with what he's done this offseason, and that he'll be able to 'come help this team be as good as we possibly can be.' Bortles is in the process of adjusting his mechanics and throwing motion.
Huddle Up: It's no secret that Bortles was arguably one of the most disappointing players in all of fantasy football this past season, but the hope is he can return to his 2015 form by working with quarterback gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux. He has a solid supporting cast around him on offense to pull it off, but owners should probably wait for him to show signs of life early on in the campaign before giving him a shot again.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 3/4/17 3:47pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan is counting on a bounce-back season from QB Blake Bortles in 2017. 'That?s our hope and it?s not just our dream. And then it?s, ?How do we make it happen?? ? Blake has to organize himself and there is only so much we can do under the collective bargaining agreement. There is a lot of stuff Blake controls. We want to do everything to make Blake successful,' Khan said.
Huddle Up: Khan doesn't have much choice. Bortles' mechanics regressed in a big way last season, which contributed greatly to his demise. To that end, he has spent most of the offseason in California training with throwing guru Tom House, like he did in the 2015 offseason. It may be too much to ask for a return to his breakthrough 2015 campaign, but Jacksonville has enough weapons to help Bortles improve if he can become more efficient with his throwing motion.
