  Jaguars | Julius Thomas expected to miss 4-5 weeks    Mon Aug 31, 04:30 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (finger) is expected to need surgery on a tendon in his finger and is expected to be out four to five weeks, according to a source. Thomas will receive a second opinion on his finger Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Thomas is incredibly talented, but he's injury prone and has never played a full 16-game season during his four-year pro career. Entering year five (and his first year with the Jagaurs), Thomas will miss more time. Marcedes Lewis and Clay Harbor will cover the TE spot if Thomas is out. We like what we've seen from Lewis.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles shows off legs    Sat Aug 29, 02:57 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles ran for 38 yards on four attempts Friday, Aug. 28, against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Bortles was known coming out of UCF to scramble from time to time. It's a nice asset to have in case the play breaks down. It's especially nice to be able to do that when the Jaguars offensive line is a work in progress. Bortles was sacked more than any other quarterback in 2014.

  Jaguars | Denard Robinson could start Week 1    Sat Aug 29, 02:02 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson might be the Jaguars' starting running back to start the season, according to Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: We're not totally buying this, but we'll have to see it play out over the rest of the preseason. Robinson isn't built to carry a starter's workload, but he could work nicely as a change-of-pace back behind rookie T.J. Yeldon.

  Jaguars | Julius Thomas on track for opener    Sat Aug 29, 12:31 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Things are going to be different for Thomas this year, and fantasy owners need to react. He's not catching passes from Peyton Manning anymore, and his stats should fall with Blake Bortles tossing him the rock. Thomas is still a TE1 if healthy, but he's more of a low-end TE1 than a top-5 guy like he was in Denver.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles continues solid preseason    Sat Aug 29, 12:11 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed 20 of 29 passes for 245 yards and a touchdown and ran for 35 yards in a 22-17 loss to the Detroit Lions in the preseason Friday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: So long as the Jaguars protect Bortles, he can be a decent starter. The second-year quarterback has better weapons around him this year, and it will be interesting to see what kind of progress he can make as a passer.

  Jaguars | Allen Hurns hurts hip    Fri Aug 28, 11:26 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (hip) exited a preseason game against the Detroit Lions Friday, Aug. 28, with hip tightness and will not return.

Footballguys view: Hurns has a shot at a job if Marquise Lee stays hurt, but getting put on the trainer's table himself isn't going to help. Right now, we see him as no more than a WR6, but right now we think he's a better bet than Lee who is two weeks away from being healthy.

  Jaguars | Allen Robinson bangs up shoulder    Fri Aug 28, 09:36 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson (shoulder) was helped off the field with a shoulder contusion in a preseason game against the Detroit Lions Friday, Aug. 28, but he was able to return.

Footballguys view: Jacksonville had a nervous moment there, as Robinson is the only reliable wide receiver they have. He should be a decent WR3, especially as good as Blake Bortles looked in Friday's game.

  Jaguars | Andre Branch suffers injury    Fri Aug 28, 08:37 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Andre Branch (knee) suffered a knee injury during the third preseason game Friday, Aug. 28, and will not return.

Footballguys view: They'll take it easy with him and try to get him ready for the season. The Jaguars have a decent defense, but not consist enough to trust. If you wait on selecting a defense, they might be good to pair up with another one or two squads.

  Jaguars | Rashad Greene could be No. 3    Fri Aug 28, 11:17 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Rashad Greene has a good chance to be Jacksonville's No. 3 wide receiver to start the season if WR Marqise Lee (hamstring) isn't healthy enough. Greene is already in a good position to be the Jaguars' primary punt returner.

Footballguys view: Greene is barely draftable as it stands, and with this offense--the questionable offensive line, the shaky running game, the second-year and raw quarterback--it's hard to imagine investing time or energy in a third wide receiver.

  Jaguars | Rashad Greene standing out    Fri Aug 28, 12:32 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Rashad Greene has impressed the coaching staff and is 'making strides' during camp, according to wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars could use some other players to step up aside from Allen Robinson (currently tracking as a WR3) and Greene could be the guy. He's nobody to reach for, in fact he's likely not someone to draft anywhere but in the final rounds of your fantasy drafts. He's no more than a WR8 or WR9, so expectations are low, but he does have some upside and could be an interesting depth pick or waiver wire acquisition.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles likes offense    Thu Aug 27, 06:34 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said this year's offense is the best offense he's been a part of in his three years, including college. 'I've enjoyed learning it. I've enjoyed trying to master it, and that's what I'll continue to do,' Bortles said. Bortles appreciates how offensive coordinator Greg Olson has been able to adapt to different offensive players.

Footballguys view: Bortles will be even more excited if this offensive line can protect him better. Last year as a rookie, Bortles was sacked a league-high 55 times. We'll see if the addition of right tackle Jeremy Parnell can help.

  Jaguars | Arrelious Benn placed on IR    Mon Aug 24, 03:43 PM

  Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon to make preseason debut    Sun Aug 23, 04:48 PM

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.'

  Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon out for preseason game    Sat Aug 22, 03:53 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (finger) was ruled out for the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: We'll see how serious this is next week, but for now we'll get a longer look at Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson, neither of which is really attractive from a fantasy standpoint. Robinson has come a long way and the team wants to use him quite a bit though if Yeldon is healthy, the carries will go towards the rookie. Yeldon is going in the fifth round of fantasy drafts, while Robinson is going in about the 14th (Gerhart is generally undrafted). While we see Yeldon as a solid RB3, with RB2 upside, Robinson is worth that late flier in case the rookie underperforms or gets hurt.

  Jaguars | Marqise Lee could return soon    Wed Aug 19, 03:10 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (hamstring) is on schedule to return in two weeks, according to head coach Gus Bradley.

Footballguys view: Lee needs to get on the field and impress. He's falling behind on the depth chart and now has to be considered third behind Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.

  Jaguars | Julius Thomas limited Tuesday    Tue Aug 18, 11:27 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (hand) is in a red, non-contact jersey at practice Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: That Thomas is still with the team and able to get some kind of work in helps his bid to get back on the field for Week 1. That might not happen, but Thomas's injury has overshadowed a lot of buzz about him being potentially the #1 option in this pass offense. He's a value if he falls past the 9th round or so.

  Jaguars | Marqise Lee still out    Tue Aug 18, 11:17 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (hamstring) remains out of practice Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: Lee has probably fallen behind Allen Hurns for at least the beginning of the season. He has been one of the few highly drafted 2014 wide receivers to not pan out early in his career.

  Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon limited again    Tue Aug 18, 11:15 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (finger) is in a red, non-contact jersey Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: Yeldon is going to be part of a split backfield to start the season with the team ramping up to him as more of a feature back as the season goes on according to ESPN writer Mike DiRocco. This could be consistent with that cautious approach.

  Jaguars | T.J. Yeldon to come along slowly    Sat Aug 15, 02:06 PM

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.

Footballguys view: This takes a little fun out of drafting Yeldon as your RB as we shouldn't expect his best games to come early in the season. He's still worth a pick in the mid-rounds, but temper your early season projections accordingly.

  Jaguars | John Cyprien breaks hand    Sat Aug 15, 12:36 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars SS John Cyprien (hand) will miss the rest of the preseason after suffering a broken hand in the first preseason game Friday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: Cyprien is the "enforcer" in the secondary. Any time he would miss would take some physical edge away from the team's defense.

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (hand) has a stable fracture on the back of his left hand, and head coach Gus Bradley said he hopes to have Thomas back by Week 1.

Footballguys view: Thomas might not move down much on your draft board, if at all on this news, but he was already outside of the top five. This has not been a good day for the low TE1 tier.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon has a good chance to be an every-down running back if he can improve his pass protection.

Footballguys view: Yeldon is going to be the featured back for the Jaguars. Behind him, Denard Robinson will work as a change-of-pace back for the team. Fantasy owners are taking Yeldon off the board at RB25 (5.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Jaguars | Marqise Lee wants to play in preseason    Wed Aug 12, 12:18 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (hamstring) said he is targeting the third preseason game to return to the field.

Footballguys view: That target may be a bit optimistic. Lee is failing to make the expected impact as a pro. He's clearly behind Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns in the pecking order, and he may not be healthy enough to earn a larger role later on in training camp.

  Jaguars | Julius Thomas making quick impression    Sun Aug 9, 08:21 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas has already established himself as 'the best player on the team, period,' according to LB Dan Skuta. 'He's going to be a matchup nightamre for a lot of teams,' Skuta said Satuday, Aug. 8. 'Get him on some guys that aren't used to covering him like me. That's what happens with good players. You've got to be perfect.'

Footballguys view: Thomas is a fantastic player who splashed onto the scene in 2013 and has caught 24 touchdown passes over the last two years. His numbers should go down in Jacksonville since he's no longer catching passes from Peyton Manning, but we still think Thomas is a low-end TE1 for fantasy owners.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles solid in scrimmage    Sun Aug 9, 08:13 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed eight of his 16 pass attempts for 80 yards and three touchdowns in a scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 8.

Footballguys view: We're interested to see if Bortles can take the next step forward in his pro career. He's got better weapons around him this year, should have the support of a better rushing attack and Bortles should be better protected this year too. Last season as a rookie, Bortles was sacked more than any other quarterback in the league.
