Allen Robinson - WRPosted 8/20/16 9:05pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson posted four receptions for 34 yards on five targets in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Robinson posted 1,400 yards on 80 reception, including 14 scores, and he was targeted 153 times, or nearly 10 per game. He emerged as a bona fide WR1 in all fantasy formats and he might just be scratching the surface heading into 2016.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 8/20/16 9:05pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns managed two receptions for 29 yards with a touchdown on three targets in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Hurns had a breakout performance in 2015, reaching double digits in touchdowns. The thinking is Hurns has a slight backslide this season, but he should still be counted upon as a low-end WR2 in most fantasy formats, higher if Allen Robinson suffers some sort of long-term injury and Hurns becomes the top dog.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 8/20/16 9:04pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed eight of his 11 pass attempts for 85 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Bortles connected with Allen Hurns and T.J. Yeldon on touchdown strikes, and he certainly looks like he is ready to take another step forward. As long as Allen Robinson, Hurns and Julius Thomas can stay healthy, Bortles will be a solid QB1 in all fantasy formats.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 8/18/16 7:46am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (knee) returned to practice Thursday, Aug. 18.
Huddle Up: Hurns performed through a myriad of injuries in his breakout season last year. There could be some regression from his 10 touchdowns, but he should remain heavily involved. He ranks in as a low-end WR2 in fantasy.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 8/17/16 4:06pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 17, because of a knee injury.
Huddle Up: There aren't a lot of details at this point, but seasoned NFL observers should know not to panic over every missed practice in mid-August. Hurns is currently should be drafted as a low-end WR2.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 8/12/16 4:22pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said he is happy with how WR Marqise Lee played during the first preseason game. 'It was really good to see,' Bradley said. 'He appeared to play really fast and made a play there, a couple plays. His speed, like we said, we've just got to continue now with him.' Lee finished the game with four receptions for 49 yards.
Huddle Up: The main thing is that Lee appears to made it through the game without aggravating his seemingly ever-present hamstring issues, but the former second-round pick still has a ways to go in his game of catch-up with fellow Class of 2014 wideouts/teammates Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 8/8/16 8:45am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson appears to be a different receiver in training camp so far and a much better receiver at that due to improved route-running and a more aggressive mentality in pursuing the ball in the air, according to Jaguars.com senior writer John Oehser.
Huddle Up: Robinson finished in a three-way tie for first in the league with 14 touchdown catches in 2015, so he has his work cut out for him to be "much better" in his third season. Robinson may not end up being a better fantasy receiver this year, however, as the Jaguars should have an improved defense and running game, lessening the need for the team to rely so heavily on the passing game. Still, Robinson should still be considered a low-end WR1 at worst in most leagues.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 8/8/16 6:25pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RBs Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon are listed as co-starters on the Jaguars' first depth chart.
Huddle Up: Not surprising this early in camp, and no matter who's starting, the touches figure to be a near-equal split when all is said and done -- assuming both backs stay reasonably healthy of course. The upside is there though as the Jags' team rushing TDs figure to go way up after they totaled all of five a year ago.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 8/3/16 6:13pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (ankle) participated in practice Wednesday, Aug. 3, despite suffering an ankle injury during practice Tuesday, Aug. 2.
Huddle Up: Positive early sign for Thomas, who's certainly has his share of injury issues of late, missing a combined seven games over the the last two seasons.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 8/2/16 3:39pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (hamstring) has missed four straight practices in training camp, as of Tuesday, Aug. 2.
Huddle Up: We'd label this another early-camp hamstring issue, but Lee seemingly has spent his two-plus season career on the injury report, largely with hammy problems. He can't be counted on in any fantasy format until he shows he can stay on the field.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 8/1/16 8:07am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is 'owning' the offense more this year, head coach Gus Bradley said Sunday, July 31.
Huddle Up: Bortles is coming off a big season, and he has plenty of weapons at his disposal in the passing game. He is firmly in the conversation of the top-five fantasy quarterbacks.
Rashad Greene - WRPosted 7/17/16 10:46pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Rashad Greene is expected to be the No. 3 wide receiver and play in the slot again behind WRs Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns, according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union.
Huddle Up: Greene's rookie year consisted of nine games, 19 receptions, 93 yards and a pair of TDs, but he has late-round sleeper potential given the Jags' prolific passing attack.
Denard Robinson - RBPosted 7/6/16 1:42am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson was allegedly asleep at the wheel when he drove into a retention pond Sunday, July 3. Robinson was not impaired, however, and should not face a charge for driving under the influence.
Huddle Up: Scary incident for the backup RB, who will be fighting for a spot on the roster with the offseason addition of Chris Ivory.
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.
