Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Draft Rankings
Leonard Fournette Note

After trying to trade him prior to the NFL Draft, Fournette appears destined to play for the Jaguars once again in 2020. With Jay Gruden calling the offense, they should be much more efficient this year, though Fournette's volume made him a great play throughout 2019. The only running backs who offered RB2 or better numbers more often than Fournette in 2019 were Christian McCaffrey, Ezekiel Elliott, Dalvin Cook, and Austin Ekeler. Do they go with more of a timeshare under Gruden? it's possible, but he should still offer low-end RB1 value.

D.J. Chark Note

It was an up-and-down season for Chark in 2019, though he certainly put his name on the map for fantasy enthusiasts. He had six games with 15-plus half-PPR points, but also had eight games with less than 9.0 half-PPR points, which is going to hurt fantasy lineups. The Jaguars also added a couple of wide receivers in the draft, including Laviska Shenault in the second round. Chark certainly has WR2 upside, but he also has a lower floor than most want to admit.

Gardner Minshew II Note

Minshew is someone who might be a bit underrated by fantasy owners coming into the 2020 fantasy season. It took an average of 15.2 fantasy points to finish as a top-18 quarterback in 2019. Minshew hit that mark in 71.4 percent of his starts, highlighting a sturdy floor, as there were just 11 quarterbacks who posted a higher number than him. With no competent backup, this is Minshew's team to run for the season, and that brings stability in 2QB leagues.

Dede Westbrook Note

The Jaguars added Laviska Shenault in the NFL Draft, but his role is a threat to Chris Conley, and not Westbrook, so I'm unsure why everyone's forgotten about the Jaguars slot receiver who finished as the WR45 last year while seeing 101 targets in 15 games. Jay Gruden is his new offensive coordinator, and if you recall, we watched Jamison Crowder flourish under him. Westbrook won't be a league-winner, but it's possible he's a steady WR3/4 option you can plug in for certain matchups. This team will be throwing the ball quite a bit.

Ryquell Armstead Note

He's probably one of the worst handcuffs in fantasy because even if there were an injury to Leonard Fournette, he'd be a mediocre RB3, which is something you can find in pass-catching backs. It seems likely the Jaguars move on from Fournette after this year, so it'd make sense for them to use and abuse him in 2020. The only hope Armstead has is that Fournette gets traded, which is possible.

Laviska Shenault Jr. Note

Chris Thompson Note

Thompson followed his old coach Jay Gruden over to the Jaguars, though it's not worth getting excited about, as Thompson has struggled to stay healthy and is going to be 30 years old later this year. He's more of a party pooper to someone like Leonard Fournette than he is a standalone fantasy asset. Even if Fournette were to miss time, Thompson's role wouldn't change much.

Chris Conley Note

Not many realize just how good of a year Conley had in 2019, racking up 90 targets, 47 receptions, 775 yards, and five touchdowns. It may not matter, though. The Jaguars drafted his eventual replacement in Laviska Shenault in the second round of the NFL Draft, so it's only a matter of time before Conley is booted from the starting lineup. Shenault did have offseason core muscle surgery, so it's possible Conley can hold him to start the year, but that's far from a guarantee.

Tyler Eifert Note

We've seen tight ends have success in Jay Gruden's offense and Eifert does have one year of experience in his offense, dating all the way back to 2013. He's on his third straight one-year deal, as no team wants to commit to him. The Jaguars will be racking up the pass attempts, but last year's draft pick Josh Oliver is also likely to be involved in the offense. It's possible Eifert has streamable weeks, but he's not in the every-week consideration.

Josh Lambo Note

Lambo had an outstanding 2019 season, hitting all but one of 34 field-goal attempts, including all four of his attempts from at least 50 yards. The Jaguars are likely to be playing from behind often this year, which could limit his chances. But given that he's hit at least 90.5% of his field-goal attempts in each of the last three seasons, he's worth considering as one of the last kickers off the board.
