Julius Thomas - TEPosted 8/29/15 1:26pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (hand) appears to be on track to play in the team's Week 1 game, according to head coach Gus Bradley.
Huddle Up: Thomas injured his hand in Jacksonville's first preseason game but the team is hoping he'll be ready for the opener against Carolina. He currently has an ADP of Round 8.
Denard Robinson - RBPosted 8/29/15 4:12pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson might be the Jaguars' starting running back to start the season, according to Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners probably shouldn't read too much into this report. Robinson will have a role in Jacksonville's offense but even if he "starts" the Jaguars view him more of a change of pace back because of his size. Robinson is certainly worth a shot drafting in the later rounds but Yeldon is the better fantasy option of the two.
Rashad Greene - WRPosted 8/28/15 10:37am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Rashad Greene has impressed the coaching staff and is 'making strides' during camp, according to wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan.
Huddle Up: Greene has been a hit this preseason, but his fantasy value is thwarted by the glut of receivers on the Jacksonville depth chart and the ceiling of toiling in the Jaguars' passing game.
Arrelious Benn - WRPosted 8/24/15 9:55am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Arrelious Benn (collarbone) will have surgery on a fractured collarbone Tuesday, Aug. 25. No timetable was given for his return.
Huddle Up: Benn was fighting an uphill battle for fantasy relevancy, logjammed in Jacksonville behind a bevy of talented young receivers. If he was on the bottom of your fantasy cheat sheet for some reason, go ahead and cross him off.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 8/23/15 11:13pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (finger) will make his preseason debut against the Detroit Lions Friday, Aug. 28. 'If it was a critical time or game, he could have played last week,' head coach Gus Bradley said. 'This week, we feel better about his opportunity. I would see him getting some reps with the 1s and 2s, mostly 1s, though.'
Huddle Up: Jags fans and antasy GMs are eager for their first look at the second-round pick and projected J'ville starter who currently owns the 23rd highest ADP among RBs at 58th overall.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 8/22/15 6:30pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (finger) was ruled out for the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 22.
Huddle Up: Yeldon is practicing on a limited basis but he's missed the Jaguars' first two preseason games. Jacksonville is being cautious with Yeldon, although he should make his debut next week.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 8/20/15 5:30pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (finger) will be a game-time decision for the team's second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 22.
Huddle Up: Fantasy GMs and Jags Nation -- is there such a thing? -- are eager to get their first live game-action glimpse of the second round pick after he sat out last week's preseason opener.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 8/18/15 5:05pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (hamstring) remains out of practice Tuesday, Aug. 18.
Huddle Up: The Jags have to be growing frustrated with Lee's injury issues. In the meantime, fellow second-year wideouts Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns are surging ahead, and free-agent signee Arrelious Benn and rookie Rashad Greene aren't too far behind.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 8/17/15 12:51pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (finger) is in a red, non- contact jersey in practice Monday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: The injury isn't serious and Yeldon isn't in danger of missing the the Jaguars opener. However, Yeldon could be kept out of this week's preseason game to avoid further injury to his finger.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 8/15/15 12:06am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (hand) has a stable fracture on the back of his right hand, and head coach Gus Bradley said he hopes to have Thomas back by Week 1.
Huddle Up: Thomas is hoping to avoid surgery but this is a situation that needs to be monitored. He isn't a lock to be ready for Week 1 when Jacksonville plays Carolina. Thomas currently has an ADP of Round 7.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 8/15/15 2:44pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon will be eased into a bigger workload this season. Jacksonville is expected to divide carries among the running backs and then gradually increase Yeldon's carries.
Huddle Up: A lot of people are excited about Yeldon but he hasn't been handed the feature back role yet. Denard Robinson and Toby Gerhart could both be in the mix for carries early in the year. However, Yeldon should separate himself from the pack after the first couple of games.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 8/14/15 11:01pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (finger) suffered a 'small' finger fracture Friday, Aug. 14, according to a source, and more will be known following a scan Saturday, Aug. 15.
Huddle Up: We'll know more after the scan. Thomas's injury will either likely require surgery or he'll be able to play through it. Hopefully it's not serious and Thomas won't miss much time.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 8/13/15 2:41pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (finger) will not play in the first preseason game Friday, Aug. 14. Head coach Gus Bradley said Yeldon is fine, but the team did not want him to pass protect if his finger was not completely healed.
Huddle Up: It's good and bad news for the second-round pick. The bad is that he's missing valuable get-his-feet-wet reps, but it's likely all good as the Jags might feel he doesn't need them and/or already is too valuable of an asset to risk.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 8/9/15 11:44pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed eight of his 16 pass attempts for 80 yards and three touchdowns in a scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: Bortles wasn't horrible as a rookie, but the Jags are counting on a big leap from the second-year QB, giving him a better supporting cast, including Pro Bowl TE Julius Thomas and rookie RB T.J. Yeldon.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 8/6/15 11:06am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (hamstring) will miss two weeks with a strained hamstring.
Huddle Up: Lee was plagued by knee and hamstring injuries last year, and he's already dealt with knee issues this offseason. The Jags are hoping he can get/stay healthy and team with Allen Robinson and Julius Thomas to give Blake Bortles a quality receiving corps; thus far that hasn't worked out so well for Lee.
Justin Blackmon - WRPosted 8/4/15 9:55pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars suspended WR Justin Blackmon hasn't had any contact with the team, and general manager David Caldwell said he thinks Blackmon's absence makes it unlikely he will ever play in the NFL again. Blackmon hasn't practiced or played since Week 8 of the 2013 season. He has to apply for reinstatement and go through almost a two-month long vetting process before he can return to the field. The Jaguars haven't cut Blackmon, and Caldwell has said more than once that they don't plan on doing so. He's currently on the reserve/suspended list and doesn't count against the roster limit or salary cap.
Huddle Up: The 2012 fifth-overall pick has played in all of 20 games in three seasons, and while he have burned too many bridges in Jacksonville, it's hard not to imagine some team taking a low-risk flier on the troubled but talented wideout if he wants to still pursue a career following his reinstatement and likely release from the Jags.
Storm Johnson - RBPosted 7/29/15 3:56pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Storm Johnson (undisclosed) was placed on the Non-Football Injury/Illness list Wednesday, July 29.
Huddle Up: Johnson missed some OTA work due to a back issue during the spring, but it's not known if this is the issue that landed the second-year player on the NFI list. When healthy, Johnson is expected to compete for reserve-tailback and kick-returner positions and is well off the fantasy radar.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 7/27/15 2:13pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said the difference is 'night and day' in his readiness between this year and last. He said his head is no longer spinning at the game's pace.
Huddle Up: Bortles threw for 2,908 yards and 11 touchdowns as a rookie. He also tossed 17 interceptions and was sacked 55 times. Bortles should improve in 2015 with a healthy Allen Robinson and the additions of TE Julius Thomas and RB T.J. Yeldon. Bortles has a chance to emerge as a weekly QB2 if he can cut down on his mistakes.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 7/19/15 3:24pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon has picked up the offense at a fast rate this offseason, according to running backs coach Kelly Skipper. 'The impressive thing about T.J. is that he picked up the offense quickly,' Skipper said. 'For the most part, when he gets something, he has it [down] and we can move onto the next thing.'
Huddle Up: The starting job in J'ville has been Yeldon's to lose since he was selected early in the second round, and he's the third-highest rookie -- and 23rd overall -- RB on The Huddle's current 2015 cheat sheet and if everything goes right, he could wind up finishing as a solid RB2 this year.
Ace Sanders - WRPosted 7/17/15 9:56pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Ace Sanders was released Friday, July 17.
Huddle Up: Sanders, a 2013 fourth-round pick, caught 51 passes for 484 yards and a TD as a rookie but fell out of offensive favor this past season with only seven targets and six receptions for 55 yards as rookies Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee moved in ahead on the depth chart. The Jags then added WR Rashad Greene in the fifth round this season, simply leaving no room for Sanders, whose best shot for now will be to catch on somewhere else as a punt returner.
Julius Thomas - TEPosted 7/16/15 2:02pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is expected to help the offense in the red zone since he caught 13 passes and nine touchdowns in the red zone last season. The Jaguars ranked last in touchdowns (13) and completion percentage (39.1 percent) in the red zone last season.
Huddle Up: Getting to the red zone in the first place clearly has been a chore for the Jags, but things should definitely be better with QB Blake Bortles entering his second season with improved weaponry to work with. Thomas, though, was more TD-dependent (12 in 43 catches) as any TE in the league last season, and it takes quite a leap to expect him to begin to approach his numbers he put with Peyton Manning and Co.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 7/5/15 11:40pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was given a checklist by offensive coordinator Greg Olson before the Jaguars six-week break in offseason programs. 'A lot of it is him homing in on the protections,' Olson said. 'When he gets back here, we want him to be completely clear on what he's doing at the line of scrimmage in terms of that,' said Olson.
Huddle Up: The second-year QB most definitely has plenty of room to grow after an up and (mostly) down rookie campaign, and given his new weapons (TE Julius Thomas, RB T.J. Yeldon and WR Rashad Greene) he has the room to take a sizable leap forward.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 7/3/15 12:04am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles dealt with a shoulder injury near the end of the 2014 season, which affected his ability to throw passes, according to general manager Dave Caldwell. Bortles did not need surgery during the offseason.
Huddle Up: With J'ville missing the postseason -- again -- the rookie has had ample time to heal, and while a healthier shoulder is certainly going to benefit the second-year QB, the upgrades (TE Julius Thomas, RB T.J. Yeldon and WR Rashad Greene) made to his supporting cast are going to be a lot more vital.
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.
