Stroud is learning on the job, which shows in his numbers. He's 25th in passing grade, 23rd in adjusted completion rate, and 16th in yards per attempt. Stroud could have a sneaky good day in Week 3. The Jaguars are 16th in yards per attempt, allowing the 13th-lowest passer rating and the seventh-lowest adjusted completion rate. These numbers look scary, but we also have to remind ourselves that they faced Anthony Richardson in his first career start and a "struggling" Patrick Mahomes, who has yet to get on the same page with his receivers. This is the same pass defense that last year allowed the fourth-most passing touchdowns and ranked 15th in adjusted completion rate. Last season, Jacksonville also struggled against the deep ball, giving up the second-highest passer rating and fourth-most deep passing touchdowns. What could throw a wrench in that is if Jacksonville's pass rush can get home. They are sixth in pressure rate. Stroud hasn't been good against pressure, with the 18th-lowest adjusted completion rate and second-lowest passing grade against pressure. Week 3 Positional Value: QB2

C.J. Stroud (shoulder) practices in full Thursday

C.J. Stroud (shoulder) practiced at full capacity on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

A shoulder injury has left Stroud limited at practice for the past week or so, but on Thursday he was able to log a full practice session. He should be good to go for Sunday's game but likely won't be a strong fantasy option against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
