Jalen Ramsey - CBPosted 6/26/16 1:56pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) is doing well and should be ready to go when training camp opens next month.
Huddle Up: This would be outstanding news for a franchise which had the rookie season of their top-five pick a year ago scuttled by a knee injury. Stay tuned ...
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 6/26/16 8:23pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas has looked unstoppable in OTAs, according to beat writer Hays Carlyon.
Huddle Up: The 6-4, 250-pound Thomas is definitely a mismatch for DBs, but the key question is health as he's never played more than 14 games in any of his first five NFL seasons.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 6/18/16 11:15am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon's improvement in pass protection was praised by offensive coordinator Greg Olson, and beat writer Ryan O'Halloran believes Yeldon is being slotted for the third-down back role while RB Chris Ivory will handle more of the carries on early downs.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars' backfield picture is coming more into focus. Jacksonville didn't sign Ivory to back up Yeldon, and this latest development suggests Ivory handling a role similar to his gig in New York while Yeldon is the change-of-pace guy--Bilal Powell to Ivory's Ivory.
Rashad Greene - QBPosted 6/17/16 7:56pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Rashad Greene has seen a majority of his reps as the first-team slot receiver, and he said he and QB Blake Bortles are becoming more comfortable working with each other.
Huddle Up: Greene, a 2015 fifth-round pick, caught 19 passes for 93 yards and a pair of scores in nine games before finishing the season on IR, has the talent to contribute on one of the league's fast-rising offenses, but the issue is all the other higher-priority mouths to feed -- i.e. Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and TE Julius Thomas -- in the Jags' passing attack.
Denard Robinson - RBPosted 6/12/16 9:55pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson said he wants to weigh around 205 to 210 pounds this season after playing at 215 to 218 pounds last season. He will compete with RB Corey Grant for the No. 3 running back job and the kick returner job during training camp.
Huddle Up: Robinson led the Jags in rushing in 2014 (582 yards) but is now just a lower-depth chart option with the additions of T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory the last two offseasons.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 6/10/16 11:17am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns is allergic to grass, which is why he wears long sleeves and tries to cover as much of his body as possible. Hurns said he found out about his grass allergy in high school. Hurns said he doesn't experience breathing problems. His nose doesn't get stuffy or runny either. He has skin breakouts that vary in degrees. Some days they're barely there. Other days he said he has to take a medication after practice or games if it's a severe breakout.
Huddle Up: A less-than-ideal situation to be sure for a player who plays at least half of his games on natural turf each season, but he's certainly managed things so far with 115 receptions for 1,708 yards and 16 TDs over his first two seasons. In other words, don't factor this into fantasy projections unless it becomes more of an issue.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 6/7/16 12:18pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas' situation is much more stable this season, as he and QB Blake Bortles are building rapport during the offseason program. 'Julius looks good,' offensive coordinator Greg Olson said Monday, June 6. 'Guys that have been here have been relatively healthy and Julius has been one of those guys, so he's been able to get a lot of reps and a lot of work in so far.'
Huddle Up: Thomas came on last season as he got healthy and developed a rapport with Bortles. The volume of offensive weapons in Jacksonville puts a ceiling on his fantasy prospects, but he should definitely be heavily involved in what projects to be one of the more potent offenses in the league.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 6/5/16 2:11pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee has improved this offseason, according to offensive coordinator Greg Olson. 'He's been very steady and he looks good,' Olson said. 'We'll continue to push him. We wanted to give Marqise a chance to play a couple of different positions at wide receiver so it's good to have him out there.'
Huddle Up: Lee has the skills to be a strong No. 3 WR, but fantasy-wise, he remains no better than the clear fourth pass-catching option at best in the J'ville offense.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 6/5/16 10:56pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon has improved his physique after spending the offseason training with Alabama strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran. Yeldon said he's at 225 pounds, but he wants to lose five more pounds before training camp.
Huddle Up: Yeldon should be improved on a number of fronts in his sophomore season, but it's still looking like there will be a near-even split of the RB duties in J'ville with the addition of free-agent Chris Ivory.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 6/3/16 11:06am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns agreed to a four-year extension worth more than $40 million Thursday, June 2, according to a source.
Huddle Up: As an undrafted player Hurns is eligible for a new deal a year sooner than his drafted counterparts. Kudos to the Jaguars for locking up one of their exciting young receivers; next offseason they can turn their attention to Allen Robinson.
Jalen Ramsey - CBPosted 6/3/16 4:19pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) should be a full participant once training camp begins, according to general manager David Caldwell.
Huddle Up: Keep an eye on things, but it looks like the Jags have escaped a repeat of the Dante Fowler situation a year ago with their latest top-five rookie.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 6/2/16 4:08pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory participated in organized team activities Thursday, June 2, after he missed workouts Tuesday, May 31, because of a personal issue.
Huddle Up: Nothing, certainly, to be concerned about with Ivory, who will be battling second-year back T.J. Yeldon for the lead role in the J'ville backfield.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 5/29/16 9:06pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said he met with TE Julius Thomas multiple times this offseason because he wants the same chemistry with Thomas that he had last year. 'We had a chance this offseason to sit down multiple times, watch film and talk about things,' Bortles said. 'Talk about what he wanted from me and what I wanted from him and how we can quickly get on the same page to grow together.'
Huddle Up: After missing the early part of the season with a finger injury, Thomas made an impact in the middle part of 2015 before finishing with a thud (back-to-back two-catch, 12-yard outings) in the Weeks 16 & 17. Most of the other 10 games, though, were TE1-caliber.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 5/24/16 10:45am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (hernia) was limited during organized team activities Monday, May 23, due to a sports hernia.
Huddle Up: While missing OTAs isn't ideal, best that Hurns gets his injury and recovery out of the way in May as opposed to August.
Jalen Ramsey - CBPosted 5/24/16 1:43pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars CB/S Jalen Ramsey (knee) underwent surgery on his meniscus Tuesday, May 24, and he's expected to return in time for training camp.
Huddle Up: IDP leaguers and Jags Nation will be monitoring the situation in the hope it won't turn out anything like Dante Fowler's 2015 season.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 5/23/16 12:08pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) was out of practice Monday, May 23, with a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Too early to hit the panic button on last season's breakout fantasy receiver, but it's at least a little disconcerting given that hamstring issues tend to linger.
Jalen Ramsey - CBPosted 5/22/16 2:02pm ET
The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed first-round pick CB Jalen Ramsey, and his four-year rookie contract includes $23.3 million in guaranteed money, along with a $15.1 million signing bonus, according to a source. The deal also includes a fifth-year option.
Huddle Up: Ramsey's meniscus knee injury suffered last week didn't affect his deal, and now we're waiting to hear how much time the fifth-overall pick might miss. That answer might come Monday when Ramsey reportedly will get a second opinion on the injury.
Jalen Ramsey - CBPosted 5/19/16 3:52pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey, the Jags' first-round pick, suffered a knee injury, according to a source. It's believed to be a small meniscus tear, but a second opinion is coming next week. If everything is fine, Ramsey could be back by the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Yikes -- immediate flashbacks to Dante Fowler last offseason, but it sounds like there's a decent chance the fifth-overall pick has escaped a truly serious injury. We'll definitely stay tuned, however ...
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 5/15/16 11:03pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will be able to jump into offseason work right away on his own because he knows the offense now, as opposed to last year when he waiting for instruction, according to offensive coordinator Greg Olson.
Huddle Up: Bortles came out of nowhere to finish third among fantasy QBs last season, and he appears to be anything but a one-season wonder with continued improvement and a young and talented cast to work with.
Justin Blackmon - WRPosted 4/28/16 4:26pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge from December in Oklahoma on Thursday, April 28. He's scheduled to be sentenced June 8. It was Blackmon's third alcohol-related arrest and fourth arrest overall. He hasn't practiced or played since Week 8 of the 2013 season, and he's been suspended indefinitely since.
Huddle Up: Even if the troubled Blackmon avoids long-term legal trouble, a possible return to the NFL grows more doubtful by the month, and look for the Jags to release him if his suspension ever gets lifted as they're set at wideout for the time being.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 4/24/16 5:04pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is the best pass-catching tight end in the NFL, according to WR Allen Robinson, and QB Blake Bortles expects to have better chemistry with Thomas in their second year together.
Huddle Up: After missing the first four games due to injury, Thomas finished with 46 catches in 80 targets for 455 yards and five TDs. Things would've definitely looked better if Thomas hadn't finished the season with a thud -- notching only two receptions for 12 yards in each of the last two games -- but Thomas is a legit threat to challenge TE1 territory this fall if he plays close to a full season.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 4/24/16 5:21pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said it has been hard to build chemistry with WR Marqise Lee because of all Lee's injuries, but he said the receiver brings something special to the table.
Huddle Up: Lee has missed a combined nine games in two seasons and certainly has fallen behind his healthier fellow 2014 rookies Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns. But he will play the No. 3 WR role and draw 4-5 targets a targets a game as long as he's healthy.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 4/19/16 10:05am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WRs Rashad Greene and Marqise Lee are expected to compete for the No. 3 receiver job during offseason workouts and training camp.
Huddle Up: Barring injury, WR3 is the upper limit for either Lee or Greene with Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns already in the lineup. Plus the addition of Chris Ivory to the TJ Yeldon-led backfield suggests there may be a slight downturn in passing in Jacksonville this season. In other words, there may not be much in the way of fantasy upside for the winner of this WR3 battle.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 4/10/16 7:42pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns said he and WR Allen Robinson are the best receiver tandem in the NFL and are only going to improve.
Huddle Up: Hurns certainly has a case as the two second-year wideouts combined for 144 receptions, 2,431 yards and 24 TDs last season while both finishing as top-15 fantasy WRs.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 4/3/16 1:52pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Chris Ivory and RB T.J. Yeldon will be in a competition to see who opens the 2016 season as the starter, according to head coach Gus Bradley.
Huddle Up: This has emerged as one of the more interesting starting-RB battles in the league, but expect a 60-40 split of the work no matter who wins the No. 1 gig.
Clay Harbor - TEPosted 3/31/16 9:59am ET
Free-agent TE Clay Harbor (Jaguars) agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal with the New England Patriots Wednesday, March 30, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Whatever slim fantasy value Harbor might have had goes out the window as he lands behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett on the depth chart. At best he's an injury handcuff to one or both of New England's primary tight ends.
Toby Gerhart - RBPosted 3/8/16 11:41pm ET
The Jacksonville Jaguars will release RB Toby Gerhart Wednesday, March 9, a source said.
Huddle Up: Remember when Gerhart was a 2014 summer sleeper pick? That was 370 rushing yards and two TDs in two deeply disappointing seasons ago.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 2/28/16 9:33pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon impressed head coach Gus Bradley with how quickly he became an every-down back last season, and he believes Yeldon can be an elite back. 'We feel really good about where he's at,' Bradley said. 'The sky's the limit for him coming up.'
Huddle Up: Despite missing four games, Yeldon finished his rookie season with the 18th-most touches (218) in the league while totaling 1,019 yards from scrimmage. Expect more work and better efficiency in Year Two.
Chad Henne - QBPosted 2/18/16 3:08pm ET
The Jacksonville Jaguars re-signed backup QB Chad Henne to a two-year, $8 million deal Thursday, Feb. 18, that includes playing time-related incentives.
Huddle Up: Henne will return for at least a fifth straight season with the Jags, but Blake Bortles is more entrenched than ever as the starter coming off his breakout season a year ago.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 2/14/16 11:51pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson earned praise from retired WR Michael Irvin, who said Robinson reminds him of himself. 'I love the way he plays and I love his confidence.' Irvin said. 'I text him about what it takes to be great and he soaks it up with a sponge and it shows on the field.'
Huddle Up: Robinson ranks among the league's top wideouts over the last two years, especially when it comes to finding the end zone as only the Cowboys' Dez Bryant, with 16, has more combined TD grabs since the start of the 2014 season.
