Fantasy Impact: An impending free agent, Robinson was lost for the entire 2017 season with a torn ACL. And while he's reportedly on track in his recovery, he has a contract to worry about. However, DiRocco notes that the Jaguars don't have any other player on the roster that garners the franchise tag outside of Robinson. And, although they prefer to ink him to a one-year incentive-based, show-me deal, the Jaguars are expected to tag the wideout if the two sides are far apart on an agreement. Expect Robinson to return to Jacksonville in 2018.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) underwent a wrist surgery on Friday. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Per Schefter, Borltes underwent a surgery to repair an injury to his right wrist which kept him lingering on the injury report for the duration of the 2017 season. And while the Jaguars and Borltes put off the surgery last offseason, they "knew it was needed now." While Bortles is under contract with the Jaguars until 2019 -- he is entering his walk year -- they team has yet to comment on his status as the team's starting quarterback for 2018. The Jacksonville quarterback situation could be one that is a mainstay throughout the offseason.

Allen Hurns caught six of seven targets for 80 yards on Sunday against the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Hurns saved one of his best efforts for the Jaguars' final game of the season, and it might have been his last game for Jacksonville. Hurns is under contract but can be cut in the offseason with no cap hit, which seems like a likely scenario. His long-term value is, therefore, obviously up in the air at this point.

Dede Westbrook caught one of his three targets for 29 yards on Sunday against the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: As in the playoff game against the Steelers, Westbrook was limited to one reception on three targets in this one. The rookie showed his dynamic talent toward the end of the season, however. With Marqise Lee likely gone, expect Westbrook to have a bigger role in 2018.

Marqise Lee caught four of eight targets for 41 yards on Sunday against the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Lee made several nice moves to gain extra yards after his receptions, but, as usual, Blake Bortles didn't go to his receivers heavily. An unrestricted free agent, Lee seems likely to find a new home in 2018, and it's probable that his value will only increase with a better quarterback throwing him the ball.

T.J. Yeldon rushed five times for 25 yards and caught two passes for six yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: As usual, Leonard Fournette carried the load on Sunday, leaving Yeldon in merely a chance-of-pace role. Under contract at minimal cost for another season, expect Yeldon to be back with the Jaguars and provide similar production to his 2017 numbers (477 total yards).

Leonard Fournette rushed 24 times for 76 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 13 yards on Sunday against the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact: Fournette ran hard all game, but the Patriots focused on taking him away in the second half and he struggled to get going. His fantastic rookie season ends with him again seeing more than 25 touches in a game. Though he averaged just 3.9 yards per carry during the season, his talent is obvious, and he should have even more success next year if the Jaguars open up the offense.

James O'Shaughnessy had one catch for four yards on one target in the Jaguars' 24-20 loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: O'Shaughnessy is not a fantasy factor as a reserve in Jacksonville.

Marcedes Lewis brought in one of three targets for a four-yard touchdown in the Jaguars' 24-20 loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Lewis made his lone grab count in the Jaguars' close loss to New England. Lewis heads into the offseason with poor fantasy prospects for next season as a touchdown-or-bust option.

Josh Lambo made all six of his extra point attempts and made a 45 yard field goal that kept the Jaguars ahead in their 45-42 win over the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact: With such a high scoring game, Lambo saw extensive use making all of his extra points. He was also able to put the nail in the coffin for the game, making his lone field goal attempt of the game. This put the Jags up two scores over the Steelers with only minutes left in the game which sealed the victory for the Jaguars. Lambo is an effective option in fantasy with only four teams remaining in the playoffs.

Keelan Cole finished Sunday's matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers with 1 reception for 45 yards.

Fantasy Impact: While the single catch is disappointing for fantasy owners, Cole's long catch set up a Fournette touchdown that was needed for the 45-42 upset against the Steelers. Cole has either been boom-or-bust recently, with the Jags leaning on the defense and run game. He will be a dart throw against the Patriots next week with Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee back in the lineup.

Ben Koyack brought in his lone target for 21 yards in the Jaguars' 45-42 win over the Steelers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Koyack posted another one-catch contest, but did not score this week. Jacksonville travels to New England for the AFC Championship.

The Jacksonville Jaguars D/ST held the Titans to 15 points on Sunday. They added three sacks, a fumble recovery, and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: The Jaguars had a whopping seven defensive touchdowns in 2017, and was the clear top option at D/ST most weeks. They should remain the top choice, or close to it, in 2018.

Category: Game Recaps


Chris Ivory rushed 17 times for 42 yards on Sunday against the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: The Jaguars leaned heavily on the run on Sunday, and it was good to see Ivory get substantial work even with both other Jaguars backs being active. He likely won't see all that much work in the playoffs absent a Fournette injury. He's under contract with the Jaguars through 2020, but unless he's traded or Fournette sustains a serious injury, he won't be a fantasy factor.

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.

Sheldon Day gets sack in win

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.
