Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 4/16/19 9:56am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette won't face discipline from the team following his recent arrest for driving with a suspended license, head coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday, April 16.
Huddle Up: Fournette has RB1 upside, but he should be valued as a RB2 with all the other factors, including his injury history, included.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 4/11/19 1:08pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was arrested Thursday, April 11, for allegedly driving with a suspended license. He paid a $1,508 bond and was released. The third-year running back's licenses had been suspended last November when he was cited for driving 37 miles per hour in a 25 mile-per-hour zone. He had not paid the required fine.
Huddle Up: Fournette has dealt with injuries and been accused of having a bad attitude, now he adds this to the unflattering list of baggage. We know that Fournette is capable of achieving RB1 status, but if these distractions persist he may be a fantasy disappointment in 2019.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 3/26/19 1:23pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (knee) is expected to be ready late in the preseason as he continues to recover from ligament damage, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: Lee has the ability to be the most reliable wide receiver on the Jaguars when he's at full health. That receiving corps is somewhat of a crapshoot, but Lee owns a WR3 ceiling.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 3/19/19 9:09am ET
Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Donte Moncrief has received a two-year, $9 million contract that includes $3.5 million guaranteed at signing. He'll make $5 million in cash in 2019.
Huddle Up: Moncrief is headed to his third team in three years, and with Antonio Brown and his massive target share now out of the picture in Pittsburgh, Moncrief has WR3 upside if he adapts well to his new offense.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 3/19/19 11:55pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette has and will continue to work out with new University of Wyoming director of sports performance Ben Iannacchione, who spent six of the past seven seasons working in the strength and conditioning program at LSU - Fournette's alma mater. Fournette also spoke with executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin, who still has 'full confidence' in the player he selected No. 4 overall in 2017. 'With Leonard, a prepared Leonard coming into camp with a mindset that he discussed and we talked about ... I have full confidence in him. He does have some things he's got to prove when he comes back about his preparation, but he's a young, young player, he loves football, had an outstanding year, had a very disappointing year, and I think he wants to - we want him to be a great player and I think he's in the same mindset,' Coughlin said.
Huddle Up: Fournette was among the bigger disappointments in fantasy in 2018, twice missing an extended period of time with hamstring injuries and earning a suspension for coming off the sidelines to throw a punch in Week 12. Owners have every right to avoid him for his lack of durability, but he is also shaping up to be a value pick if he slides into the late third round area of fantasy drafts. Until further notice, he will still be the focal point of the offense. He'll also have plenty of motivation on what should be an improved offense.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 3/13/19 9:21pm ET
The Pittsburgh Steelers and free-agent WR Donte Moncrief (Jaguars) reached an agreement on a two-year deal on Thursday, March 14, according to a source.
Huddle Up: There are plenty of targets and receptions to snap up with Antonio Brown off to Oakland, Jesse James in Detroit and Le'Veon Bell to New York. Moncrief will be in the mix for a key role behind JuJu Smith-Schuster in the 'Burgh for the new-look Steelers. For now, he shouldn't be considered as anything more than a late-round flier in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 3/9/19 12:47pm ET
Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Jaguars) agreed to a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday, March 9. Yahoo Sports! writer Terez A. Paylor reports the deal is worth $2.8 million, citing a source.
Huddle Up: This makes some sense for both parties. The KC backfield is poised to lose Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware, leaving Damien Williams as the lone back with any notable experience. Second-year RB Darrel Williams will be in the mix, and Hyde is versatile enough to play long stretches, if needed. The veteran back gets a year to prove himself in a better situation than last year's messes, and he will not have to take the pounding of being a full-time guy. Fantasy owners are looking at an RB4 in most scenarios, but he has a hint of upside should something happen to Damien Williams.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 3/9/19 6:24pm ET
Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Jaguars) could see significant playing time after agreeing to a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, in the opinion of Adam Teicher of ESPN.com, because of general manager Brett Veach's preference for bigger backs. 'I kind of have a thing for 220-pound backs that can run and catch and block,' Veach said.
Huddle Up: Hyde will start the year behind Damien Williams in the pecking order, but he has shown he can handle a lead role if necessary. At the very least, he should be considered a handcuff for owners who draft Williams.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 3/8/19 8:48am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde was released Friday, March 8.
Huddle Up: Hyde is a versatile back that can help a team in a timeshare. He could still be RB3-worthy in the right situation, but he's more likely to fall into an RB4 scenario.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 3/8/19 9:42am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will remain with the team for now, a source said Friday, March 8, but that could change next week if the Jaguars land a free-agent quarterback.
Huddle Up: It looks as if Bortles avoided the Jags' roster purge Friday, but his days in J'ville -- and fantasy relevancy for the time being -- are down to a precious few.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 3/8/19 10:10am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is expected to released before March 17 when he is due a $1 million roster bonus, in the opinion of a team beat writer.
Huddle Up: Blake Bortles had his QB1 fantasy moments over the last few seasons in J'ville, but he's likely headed for a stint of backup duty in a new locale.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 3/8/19 8:45pm ET
Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Jaguars) is scheduled to visit the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, March 9.
Huddle Up: Hyde would be the backup to Damien Williams if he does end up with the Chiefs, but he'd still be worth grabbing in the later rounds, especially if you select Williams earlier your draft.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 3/2/19 9:30am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is being shopped to other teams in a trade, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Hyde rushed for 571 yards with the Jaguars and Cleveland Browns last season but did not have much success during the second half of the season. He could be a No. 2 running back for a team if he is traded but likely will not be a strong fantasy option.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 2/26/19 10:35am ET
Impending free-agent WR Donte Moncrief (Jaguars) is a target of the New York Jets, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Jets are hungry for help at the position, and second-year quarterback Sam Darnold simply needs more weapons to assist his development. Should Moncrief join Gang Green, he's a WR3 or flex in fantasy, with a hint of upside, provided he can stay healthy.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 1/26/19 11:41am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde could be released this offseason because the team would save $4.75 million in salary cap space if Hyde is let go.
Huddle Up: Hyde probably will not be able to find a starting job if he is released but could be a No. 2 running back for a team. He probably will see a handful of carries during games next season and may only be a late-round option in fantasy leagues.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins - TEPosted 1/24/19 1:29pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins tweeted Thursday, Jan. 24, that he is leaving Jacksonville, meaning the Jaguars have declined his $500,000 team option and he will enter free agency.
Huddle Up: Seferian-Jenkins has shown he's capable of being a No. 1 fantasy tight end, but he only caught 11 passes for 90 yards and one touchdown in five games last year. We need to see him get back on track before adding him to fantasy rosters.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 1/10/19 12:06pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette met with executive vice president Tom Coughlin and other members of the team's front office to clear the air regarding his up-and-down 2018 season and perceived negative attitude, according to sources. The meeting seemingly went well for both sides and they are prepared to move in a positive direction.
Huddle Up: There had been whispers of Fournette possibly leaving the Jaguars after two years, but those were unfounded and seem to have already been quenched. There is risk in drafting Fournette, leading with the fact that he has missed 11 games in his first two seasons. The talent is evident, though, and he must still be viewed as a second or third-round fantasy draft pick.
D.J. Chark - WRPosted 1/9/19 6:45pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR DJ Chark could compete for a starting receiver job next season if he can improve route running and pass catching, in the opinion of The Florida Times-Union's John Reid.
Huddle Up: Chark was limited to 14 receptions and 174 yards in his rookie season but probably will be more involved in the passing game next season. Owners in most leagues probably can pass on him during drafts, but he could be a waiver wire option during the season if he plays well early.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 1/2/19 5:41pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles believes he'll be elsewhere in 2019, saying, 'I don't think I'll be back next year. Being honest, I envision I'll be somewhere else next year.' It's also possible the Jaguars may delay cutting him until 2020, when his dead cap hit would be just $5 million instead of $16.5 million this offseason.
Huddle Up: Despite coming up just one game short of the Super Bowl only a year ago, Bortles couldn't survive this season as the starting quarterback, losing the job to backup Cody Kessler due to inconsistency. The former No. 3 overall draft pick seems more likely to leave town and compete for a starting job elsewhere.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 1/2/19 11:05pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette is not expected to be released during the offseason, according to NFL.com's Tom Pelissero. Fournette was criticized by Tom Coughlin, the team's executive vice president of football operations, for 'disrespectful' behavior during the team's Week 17 loss, and there were also reports that the remaining guaranteed money in Fournette's contract was voided by the Jaguars due to his suspension earlier in the season.
Huddle Up: Fournette has been solid for the Jags, though thus far he hasn't been the game changer that other recent first-round backs like Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott have been. The LSU product has also missed 11 of 32 games during his two seasons, creating a medical red flag moving forward. Heading into 2019 he looks like a borderline RB2/RB3 candidate depending on what changes the offseason brings.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/31/18 8:38am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was stripped of the guaranteed money in his contract due to his suspension, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: That certainly won't make Fournette happy, but there isn't much fantasy impact on this news. He is too talented not to utilize in 2019, and he'll be on the back end of the RB1 group.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 12/30/18 8:49am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde will be the starting running back for the Jaguars in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Hyde likely will receive most of the carries during the game with T.J. Yeldon being involved in the passing game. Hyde can be a flex option in standard leagues, while Yeldon can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 12/30/18 9:34am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is starting in Week 17 on Sunday, Dec. 30, in what's likely his last game with the team.
Huddle Up: Bortles has topped 20 fantasy points in only two of his last six starts and even with with the inactives and uncertainty of Week 17, Bortles is nothing more than a two-QB or deep-league QB flyer.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 12/30/18 2:22pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde rushed for 13 yards on 10 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 17. He also caught two passes for six yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Hyde likely will be the No. 2 running back behind Leonard Fournette if he stays with the Jaguars and can be avoided in most drafts in 2019.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 12/30/18 2:14pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles 15-for-28 for 107 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception against the Houston Texans in Week 17. He also rushed for 15 yards on four carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Bortles likely will not return to the Jaguars next season and will have trouble finding another starting job. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues next season even if he starts for a team.
Dede Westbrook - WRPosted 12/30/18 2:34pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook caught three passes for 10 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Westbrook was targeted at least five times in 12 of the 16 games this season but had held to under 40 yards in eight games. He appears to be a solid option in the Jaguars passing game and can be a late-round pick in leagues next season.
Donte Moncrief - WRPosted 12/30/18 2:31pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief caught two passes for 21 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Moncrief will be a free agent this offseason, so he could be with a new team in 2019. He has posted solid numbers during his career and could be a late-round pick in some leagues next season depending on his situation.
Keelan Cole - WRPosted 12/30/18 2:25pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Keelan Cole caught four passes for 45 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Cole has been a non-factor in the passing game during the second half of the season and finished the season with only one touchdown. His fantasy value in 2019 likely will depend on the team's quarterback. He could be a late-round pick in deeper leagues if the Jaguars upgrade at quarterback.
Carlos Hyde - RBPosted 12/29/18 9:28pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde (knee) is expected to play against the Houston Texans in Week 17, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hyde should handle a bulk of the early-down work with Leonard Fournette sidelined, but he's still just a flex option against a tough Houston run defense.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 12/28/18 8:47am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot) was out of practice Friday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: His status appears grim for Week 17. Carlos Hyde could be an RB2 against the Houston Texans.
