The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected Snoop Conner with the No. 154 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Fantasy Impact: With Travis Etienne and James Robinson coming off season-ending injuries, Conner could see meaningful snaps this season. If Robinson starts the year on the Physically Unable to Perform list (PUP), Conner would be the RB2 behind Etienne and could steal some goal-line work.

Fantasy Impact: The 26-year-old offensive tackle has played five years with the Jaguars. Robinson's PFF grade in 2021 was 67.4, ranking him in the middle of the pack of offensive tackles. Some had believed Jacksonville might use their top pick on an O-lineman, but with this extension, it appears the No. 1 overall selection will most likely come from the other side of the ball.

Fantasy Impact: The Bears, who have been quiet in free agency, continue to pick up small depth guys like O'Shaughnessy. He won't come in and make a major impact on the team, but he will be a solid depth piece at the position. Fantasy managers can expect him to have very little, if any, fantasy value this season.

While speaking with reporters Tuesday, Travis Etienne stated that he is 85-90% recovered from the Lisfranc injury (foot) that kept him sidelined for the entire 2021 season and he expects to be fully cleared by training camp. (Source: ESPN)
Fantasy Impact: Etienne’s rookie season was derailed before it started when he suffered a Lisfranc injury to his left foot during a preseason game against the New Orleans Saints. Almost a year later, Etienne appears to be on track to make his much anticipated NFL debut in 2022. While at Clemson, Etienne was one of the most explosive players in all of college football and displayed excellent receiving skills for a running back, traits that fantasy managers salivate over. Heading into the 2021 season, Etienne was expected to share time with undrafted phenom James Robinson. Robinson tore his achilles late in the 2021 season and he is in jeopardy of missing early season games in 2022, opening up the door for Etienne make his case to be the primary ball carrier in Jacksonville when both backs are fully healthy.

Dylan Moses has been waived by the Jaguars, according to Ari Meirov. (Source: Ari Meirov of PFF on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: The former standout linebacker at Alabama was signed by Jacksonville in 2021 as an undrafted free agent. He missed all of last year due to injury but could be an appealing player on free agency due to his age and level of production in college.

Ian Rapoport reports that other teams are not inquiring about Jacksonville's No. 1 pick. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: This isn't surprising given the lack of top-heavy QBs, the group that usually drives this type of movement. With Jacksonville most likely hanging onto the first pick, many mock drafts have them choosing between elite defensive players, Aidan Hutchinson from Michigan or Travon Walker from Georgia.
After trading Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins, the Chiefs are reportedly "inquiring about" WR Laviska Shenault Jr. in a trade, according to insider/analyst Jordan Schultz. (Source: Jordan Schultz on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Schultz adds, via an HC, that "[Shenault is] a baller. We loved him in the draft. …Only a matter of time before he really pops.” A Year 2 WR in fantasy last season, or as some consider the archetype of WRs to target in drafts, Shenault Jr. disappointed. The WR totaled 63 receptions on 100 targets for 619 scoreless yards. A change of scenery in Kansas City with Patrick Mahomes as his QB is a welcome development for the WR's fantasy value, though. We'll have more on this as news develops.
The Jaguars and Laquon Treadwell have agreed to a one-year deal. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: The former first-round pick played in 12 games for Jacksonville last season. He tallied 33 receptions for 434 yards and one touchdown. Having a second year with the same QB and a different coach could make him a viable WR3 in fantasy.
The Jaguars and kicker Ryan Santoso have agreed to terms on a new contract. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Santoso has kicked for Tennessee, Carolina, and Detroit in his two NFL seasons. He has only kicked four field goals in his career with a long of 35.
Free agent linebacker Foyesade Oluokun has agreed to terms with the Jacksonville Jaguars. (Source: Jacksonville Jaguars on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Oluokun is a high-impact signing for a Jaguars defense in need of a leader in the middle. Oluokun led the league in tackles this past season and will have a prime opportunity to do so once again on the Jaguars. An LB1 for IDP purposes, his value remains unchanged despite no longer having to share the field with Deion Jones. The Jaguars released veteran linebacker Myles Jack in a corresponding move, who has since signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Aaron Wilson of PFN reports that the Texans have signed running back Dare Ogunbowale. It's a two-year deal worth $3.3 million and includes $550,000 guaranteed. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Ogunbowale spent 2021 with the Jaguars. Injuries (and drama) involving Travis Etienne, James Robinson, and Carlos Hyde forced him into a larger role late in the season. Over the final three weeks of the season, the 27-year-old totaled 44 touches, 195 scrimmage yards, and two total touchdowns. He won't be a starter in the Houston backfield and isn't fantasy relevant heading into 2022, but he should have no trouble competing for a depth rrole.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran linebacker has been one of the most productive players for Jacksonville and even led the team in tackles last season. The Jags seem to be moving in a different direction as they have spent heavy on playmakers for Trevor Lawrence early in free agency.

According to Adam Schefter, Former Jaguars WR D.J. Chark Jr. intends to sign one-year deal with the Lions. (Source: Adam Schefter)
Fantasy Impact: The former Jaguars WR is intending to sign a one-year, $10 million deal with the Lions. WIth the Jaguars signing both Christian Kirk and Zay Jones on Monday, it seems Chark pivoted his contract negotiations elsewhere. Adam Schefter is reporting that Chark's contract could be worth up to $12 million. With the addition of the veteran WR to the Lions, Amon-Ra St. Brown, who has become a trendy WR in redraft and dynasty, is expected to take a slight hit in his production.

Fantasy Impact: Check back shortly for the fantasy impact.
Carlos Hyde's agent confirms that Jacksonville has released the veteran RB. (Source: Josina Anderson on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: The 31-year-old played in 12 games last season for the Jaguars. He rushed for 253 yards with one touchdown.
Jaguars TE Dan Arnold has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's Week 17 game vs the New England Patriots. (Source: Dov Kleiman on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Arnold has not played since Week 12 due to a knee injury that landed him on IR. Despite the fact he has since returned from IR, trusting him in the week of the fantasy football championship was going to be a tough sell for season-long fantasy managers anyhow, but being added to Reserve/COVID-19 only makes that sale tougher. Continue to monitor his status as the week progresses, but Arnold is likely off the fantasy radar regardless.

Marvin Jones Jr. caught 2-of-4 passes for 14 yards in the Jaguars Week 15 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: After catching 6-of-7 targets last week against the Titans, Marvin Jones stock looked to be on the rise, but it came crashing down again Sunday with Jones only being able to haul in 2 catches for 14 yards. Despite drawing arguably the worst defense in the NFL, which was missing a multitude of players due to COVID-19, Jones and the Jaguars weren't able to get going. However, Marvin Jones Jr. will look to get back on track in Week 16, as he and the Jaguars face off against another cake matchup in the New York Jets. The Jets are the worst defense in the NFL when it comes to points allowed, and they're second in yards allowed per game, which should keep Jones Jr. in FLEX consideration.
Trevor Lawrence completed 22 of 38 passes for 210 yards with zero touchdowns during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Texans. The rookie quarterback kept the ball out of harm's way, the one bright spot of his performance after coming off a four-interception game last week against the Tennessee Titans.
Fantasy Impact: The struggles continued this past Sunday for Lawrence and the Jaguar's offense despite the firing of Urban Meyer. The number one overall pick has struggled tremendously in his rookie season. Since Jacksonville's Week 7 bye, Lawrence has only thrown two touchdowns to go along with six interceptions and four fumbles. If you still believe in the talents of Lawrence, now would be the time to buy him in Dynasty formats, as his value will most likely never be lower than it is now.
Tavon Austin caught both of his targets for 21 yards and a touchdown during the Jaguars 14-21 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Austin saw a boost in usage with Jamal Agnew out and managed to find the end zone for the first time since 2019. Other than being happy for Austin, he operated behind Laquon Treadwell and it makes no sense to dig for value on this Jacksonville offense. Austin won't be a recommended fantasy play against the Rams in Week 13.
