Paul Posluszny - LBPosted 6/30/15 11:19pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars LB Paul Posluszny (pectoral) is still expected to be a three-down player despite coming off a torn pectoral, according to The Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran.
Huddle Up: Posluszny averaged 140 tackles, 2.3 interceptions and 2.3 sacks during his first three seasons in J'vile, but he's on the other side of 30 now so it's going to be a little tougher for the LB to re-gain his play-making form. Let's see how the early training-camp prognosis looks, though, before we make any hasty IDP judgments.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 6/29/15 11:06pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee is slated to start behind WRs Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns, according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times Union.
Huddle Up: Sounds like we have the pecking order for Blake Bortles' receiving corps lined up, with Robinson the receiver to have if you're banking on the Jaguars' passing game for fantasy assistance.
Rashad Greene - WRPosted 6/28/15 8:25pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Rashad Greene is expected to work as the team's top slot receiver. He has impressive teammates with suddenness and his football acumen.
Huddle Up: The rookie from Florida State has the early look of a fifth-round find, but when it comes to fantasy, he's likely going to run into a numbers game in J'ville with wideouts Allen Robinson, Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee entering their second seasons and the team landing TE Julius Thomas in free agency. Will there be enough targets to go around, especially considering QB Blake Bortles is still finding his way entering his second season?
Denard Robinson - RBPosted 6/26/15 3:45pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson had a chance as an every-down back last season, but with RB T.J. Yeldon in the fold Robinson is only expected to sub in for certain situations. He might also win the kickoff return role, too.
Huddle Up: Robinson showed some fantasy spark last season, starting nine games and finishing with 706 yards from scrimmage and four TDs. The Jags, though, clearly wanted a bigger starting back and that's where Yeldon, the 6-1, 225-pound second-round pick fits in.
Bernard Pierce - RBPosted 6/25/15 3:27pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Bernard Pierce is not projected to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer Ryan O'Halloran. Pierce is believed to be in the running for the No. 4 job with RBs Storm Johnson and Corey Grant behind RBs T.J. Yeldon, Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson.
Huddle Up: Pierce was unable to take advantage of Ray Rice's departure in Baltimore last season, and it sounds like the grass most definitely won't be greener in J'ville. In case you're wondering, Yeldon -- the team's second-round pick -- is the Jags back you want.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 6/19/15 1:04pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson was described as 'unbelievable' by QB Blake Bortles Thursday, June 18. 'He's definitely a threat now in the red zone. ... He's physical. He can run and do everything out in the open field, so he's been fun to throw to,' said Bortles.
Huddle Up: Robinson showed some definite flashes (48-548-2) as a second-round pick last season, and while Cecil Shorts is no longer in the picture, the Jags' WR corps still lacks true definition with fellow second-year wideouts Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee still very much in the mix as well. Throw in the work-in-progress Bortles and the offseason addition of TE Julius Thomas, and the targets are even spread thinner. Robinson has some late-round sleeper potential, but keep your expectations realistic.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 6/17/15 2:11pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (knee) is being held out of this week's minicamp because of a left knee injury, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Bradley noted Lee will be a full participant once training camp begins.
Huddle Up: The Jags have a bevy of young receivers battling for Blake Bortles' attention, so it's not good news for Lee to be missing valuable time with his quarterback. It will make it that much more difficult for him to carve out a role in Jacksonville.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 6/17/15 10:54pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles may be throwing deeper this season, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Bradley did say that Bortles hasn't been able to throw deep much during practice so far because of the intensive heat. Bradley added that he wants Bortles to gain more confidence throwing the deep ball.
Huddle Up: The Jags have the receivers to stretch the field, and if Bortles proves adept at completing the long ball he'll take a big step forward fantasy-wise.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 6/14/15 10:11pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns health and availability have allowed him to get an early grasp on offensive coordinator Greg Olson's offense. 'I'm feeling really confident out there making plays,' Hurns said. 'I just feel really good in this system. [New coordinator Greg Olson] has done a great job of opening things up to letting us run different routes. It's a fun offense to play in,' said Hurns.
Huddle Up: The undrafted rookie led the Jags with 677 receiving yards and six TDs last season -- out-performing second-round counterparts Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee -- and remains the top fantasy prospect among the team's young WR corps. This season, he also should benefit from the off-season addition of TE Julius Thomas, who will draw defensive attention away from the WR corps.
Marcedes Lewis - TEPosted 6/7/15 3:47pm ET
The Jaguars are expected make frequent use of two- and even three-tight end packages, which would get holdovers Marcedes Lewis and Clay Harbor on the field with prize free-agent acquisition Julius Thomas. Under new offensive coordinator Greg Olson, the Jags will feature a "move" tight end (Thomas) who can line up all over the formation and a traditional tight end (Lewis) who will be on the line. Harbor also will be a "move" tight end when Olson wants to throw in a wrinkle.
Huddle Up: The Jags certainly possess some TE talent on paper, but translating that into fantasy success is going to be another matter entirely. Thomas' stock definitely has fallen going from Peyton Manning to second-year Blake Bortles, but his presence as the clear No. 1 pass-catching option knocks Lewis and Harbor even further down the fantasy TE ladder than they were a year ago when they combined for only 44 catches, 495 yards and three TDs.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 6/2/15 4:49pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RP T.J. Yeldon is expected to be the starting running back as a rookie in 2015. Yeldon has impressed early in organized team activities and shown versatility as a runner and receiver.
Huddle Up: Given the depth chart and last season's major disappointment that was Toby Gerhart, here's been little doubt that Yeldon was primed for a starting role as soon as he was selected in the second round. After the Chargers' Melvin Gordon, he should be the next rookie RB to come off the board in drafts this summer.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 6/1/15 11:36pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson (foot) was on the field for organized team activities (OTAs) Monday, June 1, for the first time in seven months.
Huddle Up: Good for Robinson to be back on the field as he looks to stake his claim to a leading role in the Jaguars' receiver rotation.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 5/29/15 1:00am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (knee) could miss the next two weeks of action as he continues to recover from an elbow injury he suffered last season.
Huddle Up: Lee also battled hamstring and ankle issues -- missing three games -- in his rookie season and the Jags are looking for a healthier and more dependable target in Year Two.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 5/27/15 12:21am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RBs T.J. Yeldon, Denard Robinson, Toby Gerhart and company could see a lot of action this season as head coach Gus Bradley has said the running game will be a point of emphasis in 2015.
Huddle Up: The Jags finished 28th in attempts and 21st in yards last season -- and those numbers/ranks likely will only see significant increases if the Jags can manage to make more games competitive. As for the individual backs, the rookie Yeldon is the J'ville back to target.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 5/26/15 4:56pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is working this offseason on improving his mechanics to become a better quarterback. He attended 3DQB, which specializes in bio-mechanics motion analysis to help improve quarterbacks' footwork and throwing motion.
Huddle Up: Bortles' mechanics and decision-making were certainly in need of upgrades after throwing for only 11 TDs and compiling a 69.5 passer rating and 21.94 QBR last season a rookie, and with his surrounding cast getting a boost this offseason, don't be surprised if Bortles morphs into a solid QB2 as a sophomore.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 5/17/15 3:36pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon will likely win the starting job and be the feature back in 2015, according to ESPN.com's Michael DiRocco.
Huddle Up: That most definitely seems to be the plan for the second-round pick as Toby Gerhart has primarily moved to FB and Denard Robinson is simply to too light at 5-10 and 199 pounds to shoulder the load.
Rashad Greene - WRPosted 5/17/15 8:16pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Rashad Greene has looked smooth in rookie minicamp and is expected to be used out of the slot when the Jaguars use three- or four-receiver sets.
Huddle Up: Greene, who caught 270 passes including 29 TD grabs during his productive four seasons at Florida State, could prove to be a fifth-round find for the Jags. The addition of the rookie, however, only serves to further jumble the team's fantasy picture as he joins new TE Julius Thomas and second-year wideouts Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns in the mix for targets.
Denard Robinson - RBPosted 5/14/15 11:12pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson will return kicks in 2015, according to general manager David Caldwell.
Huddle Up: The Jags had promised to keep Robinson involved, and this will provide guaranteed touches, supplementing his projected change-of-pace role in back of second-round rookie T.J. Yeldon.
Dante Fowler - DLPosted 5/8/15 7:16pm ET
Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars DE Dante Fowler (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during practice Friday, May 8, and will miss the entire 2015 season, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Just when the Jags seemed to be turning the corner, this horrible news flash comes out of North Florida. It's now back to pass-rush drawing board for J'ville, which was banking heavily on the the draft's third over all pick.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 5/2/15 8:17am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is viewed as a three-down back, general manager David Caldwell said Friday, May 1.
Huddle Up: Yeldon was always part of a committee in college, but the Jags are hoping he can flourish when given an opportunity to see more touches. His arrival puts a serious dent in the fantasy value of Denard Robinson.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 5/1/15 8:06pm ET
Alabama RB T.J. Yeldon was selected 36th overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft on Friday, May 1.
Huddle Up: Despite expressing pre-draft confidence in Denard Robinson, the Jags needed a bigger back to handle the the bulk of the RB carries, and they found one in the 225-pound Yeldon, who also possesses solid receiving and blocking skills. The odd-man out now in J'ville looks to be Toby Gerhart, who had a disappointing debut season a year ago with the Jags.
Justin Blackmon - WRPosted 4/24/15 3:39pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon is likely done with the Jaguars if he's reinstated into the league, in the opinion of beat writer Ryan O'Halloran.
Huddle Up: The fifth-overall pick of the 2012 draft has started 18 games in three suspension-marred seasons with the Jags, and even though the talent is there for the 25-year-old WR, it's likely for the best that Blackmon gets a new start.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 4/22/15 11:20am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles worked with quarterbacks guru Tom House during the offseason. Bortles said Tuesday, April 21, that he spent two months in the offseason in California and was mentored by House. Bortles also spent four days throwing to TE Julius Thomas, WR Marqise Lee, TE Clay Harbor and WR Tony Washington. In addition, Bortles dropped 12 pounds from his the end of last season.
Huddle Up: Nice to see that Bortles didn't settle for being the top pick and put in extra work in the offseason. Expect the team to give him some more help in the upcoming draft, and look for his development to continue on an upward track.
Denard Robinson - RBPosted 4/19/15 2:39pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson said he believes he should be the No. 1 running back in 2015, and general manager Dave Caldwell said he wouldn't forget about Robinson as he prepares for the 2015 NFL Draft. Robinson added that the foot injury he suffered during the season is completely healed and that he was cleared to do everything in February.
Huddle Up: Robinson flashed his ability with 706 yards from scrimmage and four TDs in nine starts last season, but at 5-11 and 199 pounds there are definite concerns that Robinson will be able to shoulder a full-season No. 1 RB workload so don't be surprised if the Jags come away with a back in this deep RB draft class.
Paul Posluszny - LBPosted 4/16/15 3:54pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars LB Paul Posluszny has signed a one-year contract extension with the team. The deal will keep the LB in Jacksonville through the 2017 season.
Huddle Up: Posluszny had notched at least 110 total tackles in six straight seasons, including three straight as the Jags' leading tackler, before a torn pectoral muscle cut short his 2014 campaign after seven games. As evidenced, though, by the extension, he's ready, though, to resume his spot in the middle of the J'Ville D.
Arrelious Benn - WRPosted 3/31/15 11:08am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Arrelious Benn could be an option for more time and a bigger role in the offense, as general manager David Caldwell mentioned Benn and WR Tandon Doss as in-house veterans as options to fill the team's need for a seasoned receiver.
Huddle Up: Nice to have a "seasoned receiver", but the Jaguars have a bevy of quality young wideouts and it's unlikely Benn will be taking time from Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee, or Allen Hurns.
Jordan Todman - RBPosted 3/31/15 11:08am ET
Free-agent RB Jordan Todman (Jaguars) signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers Monday, March 30. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Panthers have room behind (alongside?) Jonathan Stewart in their backfield. In fact, they've already indicated they would prefer to limit Stewart to 15 carries a game, so there are some touches available... at least until the draft.
Toby Gerhart - RBPosted 3/31/15 7:32pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart is expected to line up occasionally as a fullback in 2015 after the team released FB Bradie Ewing.
Huddle Up: With all of 101 carries for 326 yards in seven starts last season, Gerhart was a major fantasy bust. He has a long way to go to earn back trust, and this latest FB talk isn't exactly going to inspire confidence in fantasy GMs.
Bernard Pierce - RBPosted 3/20/15 5:35pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Bernard Pierce likely will face a suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy with his DUI arrest this week. Pierce will be given a chance to compete for playing time with RBs Toby Gerhart, Denard Robinson, Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson in 2015. Pierce has struggled in the NFL since his rookie season in 2012, and he's mainly been hampered by a list of injuries including back, ankle, knee, shoulder, thigh, toe and head ailments. Pierce has a chance to be part of a three-man rotation, especially if the Jaguars use Gerhart more as an H-back.
Huddle Up: After rushing for 532 yards as a rookie in 2012, Pierce's ground totals have dipped in each of the past two seasons, and it's going to be tough to count on any kind of a rebound this season given the likely suspension and the backfield logjam in J'ville.
Toby Gerhart - RBPosted 2/20/15 4:47pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart will likely be back with the team in 2015, according to head coach Gus Bradley. 'Toby's done a nice job for us,' Bradley said Thursday, Feb. 19. 'I know people may consider him a third down-type back or a short-yardage, situational back but we saw him do enough good things on first and second downs that he'll have a place with us. He is a different style of back, and we're putting tougher an offense that best utilizes his strength.'
Huddle Up: Gerhart had the second-most carries (101) of his career last season but only produced 326 yards and two scores. And while it wouldn't be a surprise to see Gerhart get another year in J'ville, it also wouldn't be surprising to see the team bring in a veteran free agent or select a RB in the draft.
