  Jaguars | Jalen Ramsey suspended one week    Sun Aug 12, 07:07 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey has been suspended by the team for one week after criticizing the local media for what he believes is unfair treatment of some of his teammates, according to sources.

Footballguys view: This is probably just a blip and forgettable, but it does show some friction between Ramsey and the team, which could come up again if these kinds of differences mount as Ramsey gets closer to free agency.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook working on routes    Sat Aug 11, 04:54 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook said Saturday, Aug. 11, that he is a better route runner in his second season in the NFL, and it is something he has been working on to improve. 'I was pretty much running by people (in college). When you've got defensive backs like (CB Jalen Ramsey) and (CB A.J. Bouye), you have to fine-tune your routes,' Westbrook said.

Footballguys view: Westbrook is an electric athlete with quickness and speed to get around defenders. If he becomes a better route runner then Westbrook could be the most dangerous receiver on the Jaguars roster. As it stands right now, Westbrook is third on the depth chart behind Marqise Lee and Keelan Cole.

  Jaguars | Dante Fowler activated from PUP list    Sat Aug 11, 11:53 AM

The Jacksonville Jaguars activated DE Dante Fowler (shoulder) from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: In the final year of his contract, Fowler needs to stay healthy and produce in order to create a large demand for his services. The Jaguars declined his fifth-year option earlier this year and there has been buzz the team could end up trading him.

  Jaguars | Cody Kessler sharp in preseason    Thu Aug 9, 09:57 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Cody Kessler completed 14 of his 17 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown in a 24-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Kessler did a lot to solidify his status as Blake Bortles backup in the preseason opener. The Jaguars might not be as inclined to trade for Teddy Bridgewater if Kessler keeps playing like this.

  Jaguars | Andrew Norwell a late scratch    Thu Aug 9, 07:03 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars OG Andrew Norwell (calf) has been ruled out of the first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9, after dealing with some calf tightness during pregame warmups.

Footballguys view: Norwell's addition could take the power running game for Jacksonville to the next level, but it looks like we'll have to wait at least a week to see what their line looks like with him in the starting lineup.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook more comfortable in offense    Thu Aug 9, 11:30 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook's knowledge of the playbook this preseason has given him a comfort level, and he is making tough catches during training camp.

Footballguys view: With Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson gone, there's room for Westbrook to make a splash. He didn't do a ton in the seven games he played during his rookie season, but this could be a sign he might be in line for some targets. We're still not sold until we've seen some preseason action, and it seems like Fantasy GMs are also holding off on grabbing him as his ADP is currently at 67th receiver off the board.

  Jaguars | DJ Chark still learning    Sun Aug 5, 09:28 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR DJ Chark has made plays during training camp, according to head coach Doug Marrone, but Marrone said Chark still has a ways to go.

Footballguys view: Chark is far from a finished product. During his college career at LSU, Chark showed off incredible speed and the ability to get on top of a defense. He also showed inconsistency to his game. The rookie will get plenty of time to develop as he's fifth (likely at best) on the Jaguars depth chart.

  Jaguars | Calais Campbell back on field    Sun Aug 5, 08:02 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Calais Campbell (calf) participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 5.

  Jaguars | Donte Moncrief a full participant    Fri Aug 3, 06:14 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Donte Moncrief (knee) will be a full participant during practice Friday, Aug. 3. Moncrief has been limited lately because of a knee injury.

Footballguys view: Hopefully Moncrief can stay on the field now. Injuries have held back his development and they could hamper his bid to be a productive starting receiver for the Jaguars and earn a good contract next year.

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Calais Campbell (calf) is not participating in practice Friday, Aug. 3, because of a calf injury.

  Jaguars | DJ Chark making a strong impression    Fri Aug 3, 01:20 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR DJ Chark has shown dependable hands and looked comfortable pretty much wherever the coaching staff has lined him up during training camp, according to Philip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars have five receivers who can all play solid roles in the offense this year, and at least three who can be deep threats. While it's not good for predicting weekly projections among the receiver group, it could be a boon for Blake Bortles. Chark is more of a dynasty stash right now, but if Donte Moncrief and Marqise Lee can't stay healthy, he could be a waiver wire pickup this season.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook making some noise    Thu Aug 2, 10:13 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook continues to 'flash' during training camp, according to John Oehser of Jaguars.com.

Footballguys view: Blake Bortles gave Westbrook a lot of work on third down last season, and the then-rookie responded. The Jaguars receiving corps is in a state of flux this year, with Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson gone, and there is room for Westbrook to make some noise. His wide receiver ADP is hovering in the 60s right now, and we wouldn't kill ourselves to grab him earlier, but he's worth watching.

  Jaguars | Leonard Fournette in better condition    Thu Aug 2, 10:08 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette said he is already feeling the benefits of playing lighter and showing more consistent burst.

Footballguys view: That should keep him producing all through the playoffs this year. Fournette is rated as one of the top running backs for the season and is going off the board in the top ten for fantasy drafts. We expect a very productive year from him.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville's top four WRs set?    Thu Aug 2, 02:47 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WRs Marqise Lee, Donte Moncrief, Keelan Cole and DJ Chark are set atop the team's receiver depth chart with WR Dede Westbrook the front runner for the No. 5 spot, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco.

Footballguys view: The biggest question here is really what happens with Blake Bortles. While he had some really nice moments in 2017, his production continues to drop, though his completion percentage improved over previous numbers. How he goes will directly impact his receivers. Right now, even assumed No. 1 Marqise Lee is suffering from a mediocre ADP of 51st receiver overall. Now, Lee is battling a shoulder injury, but he has the ability to be higher. We just don't trust that he has the quarterback to throw him the ball. The wide receiver group is dragged down by the quarterback, and lacks the ability (in Lee's case) or the experience (in the case of DJ Chark) to overcome that in the way that Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson did for a time.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook lined up as an outside receiver as well as a slot receiver during practice Friday, July 27.

  Jaguars | Two Jaguars to PUP    Mon Jul 23, 09:58 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Dante Fowler (undisclosed) and TE David Grinnage (undisclosed) opened training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, July 23.

Footballguys view: Just a few days ago we learned the NFL suspended Fowler one game for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Fowler's undisclosed upper body injury has reportedly caused him to lose muscle mass during his recovery. The Jaguars failed to pick up Fowler's fifth-year option so the former first-round pick is set to hit the free agent market in 2019.

  Jaguars | Dante Fowler Jr. suspended for opener    Fri Jul 20, 03:28 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Dante Fowler Jr. was suspended without pay for the first game of the 2018 season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy on Friday, July 20.

Footballguys view: This suspension stems from an arrest last summer. "We were informed today of Dante's one-game suspension and we will abide by the league's ruling," Jaguars VP of football operations Tom Coughlin said in a press release. "We'll work to get Dante ready to play when he is able to return." Fowler's fifth-year option was not picked up by the Jaguars this year meaning he's set to hit free agency in 2019.

  Jaguars | Taven Bryan signs rookie deal    Tue Jul 17, 11:10 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars DT Taven Bryan signed a four-year, $10.2 million deal Tuesday, July 17. The deal includes a $5.5 million signing bonus and a fifth-year option.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars first-round pick out of Florida was one of the most disruptive players in the 2018 NFL draft. Bryan only adds to a tremendous defense that can make plays on all three levels. The rookie is country strong and a fierce competitor who hustles to the echo of the echo of the whistle. The Jagaurs are the first defense taken in many current fantasy drafts, going off the board at D1 (9.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Jaguars | Marqise Lee the master of crossing routes    Sun Jul 15, 05:15 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee received 30 of his 91 targets in 2017 on crossing routes and turned those into 24 catches for 286 yards and two touchdowns, good for a NFL-high receiver rating of 128.6. Lee's 15 first down conversions on those routes ranked second in the league.

Footballguys view: Lee might have the highest floor of the Jaguars receivers this year, and he has a good proven rapport with Blake Bortles. He also has a checkered injury history and lacks a big play profile. He is best used as a bye/injury option in PPR leagues.

  Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon the 'clear-cut' No. 2 back    Tue Jul 10, 12:51 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is 'currently the team's best blocker and receiver out of the backfield' and the 'clear-cut No.2 back' at the moment, according to Mike Kaye of First Coast News.

Footballguys view: Yeldon's ceiling is largely about opportunity at this point, with Leonard Fournette in front of him. But we could see him emerge as a decent third down back who, while not reliable, could fill in as an occasional flex option. If you aren't using him as a Fournette handcuff, don't take him before fairly late in the draft, but he is worth keeping an eye on.

  Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon making strides    Sun Jul 8, 11:29 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is improving as a runner, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. 'You can see more explosion start to come from him,' Hackett said. 'Just his ability to pass protect and be able to catch the ball from the backfield.'

Footballguys view: Yeldon had less carries but was more effective with what he got, averaging a 5.2 yards per carry average, up from 4.6 and 3.1 the previous two years. Do keep in mind, however, that he carried the ball less than 50 times, which makes it easier for the occasionally long run to move the needle on his average. Aside from Week 7, he never cracked 50 yards on the ground or combined for more than 70 beyond one time in Week 16. Yeldon appears to be finding his footing as a solid backup but nothing beyond that and as a handcuff he's not going to have much value. His ADP currently sits at 63 for running backs, and we wouldn't go higher than that, especially if you don't own Leonard Fournette.

  Jaguars | More big plays from Blake Bortles?    Wed Jul 4, 07:33 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has earned the trust of offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, and Hackett said Bortles' improved decision making will allow him to be 'a lot more aggressive' with his play calling.

Footballguys view: What Hackett is saying, but we're not sure who Bortles is throwing to. At this point we don't recommend him as more than a low-end QB2.

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Dawuane Smoot (undisclosed) missed all of the offseason workouts because of an undisclosed injury.

  Jaguars | Dante Fowler update    Tue Jun 26, 11:07 AM

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars DE Dante Fowler (upper body) missed the offseason program due to an undisclosed upper-body injury.

Footballguys view: Reports and rumors are swirling about Fowler's future in Jacksonville and the potential he could be traded to a team like the Jets when healthy. Fowler has lost sizeable muscle mass in his upper body, and his status for training camp is unknown. Jacksonville did not pick up his fifth-year option, so Fowler is in the final year of his rookie contract.
