Jacksonville Jaguars

AFC South

The Jacksonville Jaguars D/ST turned in another monster performance thanks to a game-sealing fumble return TD in the 4th quarter. The unit allowed 7 points and only 184 yards. The Jaguars recorded five sacks and 5 turnovers (5 fumbles forced, 3 fumbles recovered, and two interceptions).

Fantasy Impact: It was certainly less-than-ideal conditions for both offenses, as the Jaguars also fumbled five times, though only lost one. Normally, this game could be counted as an outlier given the matchup and weather, but the Jaguars Defense has been the best in the league this year by a wide margin, and that should continue. The Jaguars travel to Arizona next week, where they'll face either Drew Stanton or Blaine Gabbert. They'll be an elite option at the D/ST position. Their fantasy playoff schedule is Seattle (home), Houston (home) and San Francisco (away), which is extremely favorable. It may actually be worth trading for the Jaguars D/ST, as they could put up monster numbers down the stretch.

Keelan Cole caught three passes on six targets for 24 yards in the Jaguars' Week 11 win over the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Cole was actually running as the WR2 in this game, contrary to popular expectation that it was immediately Dede Westbrook's job. Cole played 58% of the offensive snaps to Westbrook's 45%. There were no game script concerns with the data, as the Jaguars led by a small margin most of the way, putting the game away late with a few turnovers. Cole tied Westbrook with six targets and three catches. Westbrook produced 35 yards, but also fumbled once (though the Jaguars recovered). It will be interesting to see how the WRs are used moving forward, given Westbrook's better pedigree but also the fumble. Neither Cole nor Westbook can be started yet, but Westbrook is by far the better stash and should be owned in all leagues, as his upside could win fantasy titles this year. S brief glimmer of hope for Dynasty players earlier this season, Cole can now safely be dropped if there is a higher upside option available.

Chris Ivory had six carries for only six yards against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Ivory is looking less and less like the handcuff to own in the Jacksonville backfield. Yeldon continues to see as many carries as Ivory while being more involved in the passing game. As of now, Chris Ivory remains the second-best handcuff option to Fournette owners.

Category: Game Recaps


T.J. Yeldon rushed five times for 15 yards and added one reception on two targets for five yards against the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Yeldon had a very quiet performance due to the Jaguars keeping Fournette heavily involved throughout the game. As long as Fournette is healthy enough to play, Yeldon is nothing more than a game-flow dependent flex play in deeper leagues or a high-quality handcuff. Having said that, it looks as though Yeldon is the backup to own over Chris Ivory in the Jacksonville backfield.

Leonard Fournette rushed 28 times for 111 yards against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: After struggling with an ankle injury for the past few weeks, Fournette looked like his regular RB1 self against the Browns in Week 11. Fournette has said that he has played with this ankle injury in the past and, "knows how to deal with it". That said, fantasy owners should still keep a close eye on this injury in the future. As of now, continue to start Fournette with confidence.

Dede Westbrook finished Sunday's matchup against the Browns with 35 yards on 3 receptions.

Fantasy Impact: Despite calling for a 200-yard game in his NFL debut, Westbrook did not have a huge day, even with Allen Hurns sidelined with an injury. As for all Jaguars receivers, Westbrook is limited by the team's dedication to the running game. He should not be in fantasy lineups this year.

Marqise Lee finished Sunday's win over the Browns with 5 receptions on 9 targets for 45 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Yet again, Lee has shown that he has a strong hold as the lead receiver in Jacksonville. However, the worth of being the lead receiver on a run-first offense is still up in the air, as Lee has yet to break 100 yards receiving in a game this season. That being said, Lee has at least proven to be a consistent flex-play each week.

James O'Shaughnessy brought in his lone target for 12 yards in the Jaguars' 19-7 win over the Browns Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: O'Shaughnessy is the second tight end option in Jacksonville and is not worthy of starting for fantasy.

Marcedes Lewis posted two catches for 26 yards and one touchdown in the Jaguars' 19-7 win over the Browns Sunday. He was targeted twice.

Fantasy Impact: Lewis had the only offensive touchdown for the Jaguars Sunday. He continues to see small target volume but has shown enough scoring potential to be worth a dart throw as a touchdown-dependent option.

Blake Bortles completed 17 of 30 passes for 154 yards and one touchdown in the Jaguars' 19-7 win over the Browns Sunday. He also lost one fumble and rushed four times for four yards.

Fantasy Impact: The weather in Cleveland was an issue Sunday and Jacksonville leaned heavily on their favored formula of Leonard Fournette and defense to win. Bortles played efficiently enough to not lose the game for the Jaguars. He is best left on the waiver wire this season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) is ruled out for Week 11. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Hurns inactive, rookie Dede Westbrook is in line to see an expanded role in his NFL debut on Sunday against the Browns. Westbrook is a deep reach Flex option whose viewed a high-end tourney-buster play in DFS formats in a plus Week 11 matchup.

Tashaun Gipson tallied five tackles and one fumble recovery in win against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Gipson had another strong performance in Week 10. Finding the loose ball and having a strong talking day. Gipson has a plus matchup in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns.

Corey Grant rushed the ball one time for 56 yards and a TD in win against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Grant is a dynamic special teams player. He was used in a similar formation against the Ravens on a fake punt earlier in the year with success. Grant doesn't have any fantasy value outside of the Jaguars D/ST.

Jalen Ramsey had a limited practice on Thursday. The Jacksonville Jaguars face the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 10. (Source: Jaguars.com)

Fantasy Impact: Ramsey's groin is a new injury since the Bengals game last week. The good news is Ramsey has been on the injury report for the most of the year and hasn't missed any time.

Marcell Dareus did not practice on Thursday. The Jacksonville Jaguars face the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 10. (Source: Jaguars.com)

Fantasy Impact: Dareus hasn't practiced this week. He will have most of the week to get over his illness. Keep an eye on Dareus's news before Sunday.

Calais Campbell recorded one sack and two tackles in win against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 9.

Fantasy Impact: Campbell took the lead with 11 sacks for the year against the Bengals. He has been getting to the opposing QB early and often. Campbell is averaging over one sack a game going into Week 10 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Josh Lambo made all 3 of his field goals, including a 56-yard attempt, while also making both of his extra points.

Fantasy Impact: Lambo has been excellent in his replacement of Jason Myers as the Jaguars' primary kicker. He is a viable option down the stretch as a fantasy starter on a capable Jaguars offense.

Sheldon Day gets sack in win

Sun, Oct 22nd 6:39pm EDT

SF

Sheldon Day recorded one combined tackle and one sack against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Day contributed to the Jaguars DST's ten sacks in Week 7. This is the first time Day is on the fantasy radar for 2017. He is deep sleeper to watch in the future but isn't worth the roster spot until he does it a few weeks in a row.

Malik Jackson recorded three combined tackles and one and a half sacks against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: Even Jackson got into the sack-frenzy on Sunday. Before Week 7, Jackson had one in a half sacks for the 2017 season. Jackson doubled his sack total in the game against the Colts. Jackson and the Jacksonville Jaguars are on bye in Week 8.

Dante Fowler Jr recorded four combined tackles and one in a half sacks against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact: That puts Fowler at five in a half sacks for the season. Fowler is averaging just under a sack a game. The downside is that he is an edge rusher and generally ends up with a low amount of tackles. Either way, he is on a team that is producing an obscene about of sacks and should be held through the bye week if you can.
