Fantasy Impact: Gipson's absence will be felt if he misses the game. Backup safety Calvin Pryor was just sent to the IR in Week 1. Hopefully this is precautionary, because the entire Jaguars secondary would be downgraded if Gipson misses time.

Fantasy Impact: Ramsey did not practice the entire week prior to Week 2 but he ended up playing all game. The limited practice is an attempt get Ramsey's ankle back to full strength.

TJ Yeldon did not suit up Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Yeldon can be dropped at this point in fantasy leagues. Yeldon does not seem to be in the Jaguars running plans and I wouldn't be surprised is Yeldon was traded or waived in the coming weeks.

AJ Bouye had six solo tackles and one pass deflected in the Week 2 loss against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Bouye was another Jaguars defensive standouts. The defensive line wasn't able to get a ton of pressure on Marcus Mariota, which put a ton of pressure on the Jaguars secondary. Bouye needs be owned in IDP leagues.

Barry Church had six solo tackles in the Week 2 loss against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Church was one of the defensive standouts for the Jaguars. He made some good open field tackles and is a player keep an eye out for in IDP leagues.

Myles Jack recorded five solo tackles, one combined tackle and the only sack for the Jaguars in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact: The entire defense struggled due to bad field position. The offense turned the ball over three times and struggled to keep possession. Jack and the Jaguars defense, will have better games in the future but will be at the mercy of the offense.

Corey Grant rushes one time for 13 yards in the Week 2 loss against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Grant has seemed to take over the change of pace back for the Jaguars. The role has been severely limited behind the two-headed monster in Chris Ivory and Leonard Fournette. Grant is a player to watch if Ivory or Fournette were to miss time.

Chris Ivory had six rush attempts for 17 yards and three receptions for 31 yards in Week 2 loss against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact: After two weeks, the Jaguars have been focusing Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory. TJ Yeldon has been the odd man out. Ivory has been productive with his touches and needs to be handcuffed by Fournette owners.

Marcedes Lewis was not targeted Sunday in the Jaguars' 37-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Lewis was not a factor for what is now one of the worst passing games in the NFL on Sunday. With the struggles of Blake Bortles and the Jaguar passing game, it is best to pass on Lewis barring a sudden uptick in usage.

Jason Myers made his lone field goal attempt of 43 yards and also converted his only extra point attempt in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: The Jaguars struggled to get anything going on offense against the Titans, limiting any opportunity for Myers to get a larger workload. The Jaguars will be hard pressed to improve their offense next week against a stout Ravens defense. Because of this, Myers should remain on the waiver wire this week.

Marqise Lee had seven catches on 12 targets for 76 yards against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: While it's promising to see double-digit targets, Lee's day was made after the Titans already had a large lead. The Jaguars could continue to trail in games late, but it's hard to rely on for fantasy each week. Allen Robinson's absence boosts Lee's value, but the Jaguars' commitment to the running game could limit any upside Lee may have.

Allen Hurns finished Sunday's blowout loss to the Tennessee Titans with six receptions on seven targets for 82 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: While the bottom line benefitted Hurns owners, the majority of his fantasy points came from a long touchdown after the game was already out of hand. With Allen Robinson out for the year, Hurns should still see an increase of usage moving forward, but it's tough to say how much that usage is worth with the Jaguars' dedication to the run game. A wait-and-see approach should be taken with Hurns.

Leonard Fournette carried 14 times for 40 yards and a touchdown while catching two passes for 21 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the late touchdown by Fournette, make no mistake about it: he struggled on Sunday. The game script didn't do him any favors, but Tennessee did a great job at stacking the box and taking away Jacksonville's running game. This resulted in Blake Bortles having to throw more, which is never a good thing for the Jaguars. This could be a common dilemma moving forward for Jacksonville's offense, which definitely puts a cap on Fournette's potential. He will face one of the better run-stopping defensive units in Baltimore next week.

Jacksonville's defense gave up 37 points to the Titans on Sunday, but had one interception and one sack.

Fantasy Impact: This unit came back to Earth after an outstanding performance against Houston in Week 1. Although they gave up 37 points, this is still one of the better defenses in the NFL. Their struggles on Sunday can mostly be attributed to the fact that Blake Bortles turned the ball over three times on their own side of the 50-yard line, leaving the defense with barely any room for error. Tennessee's offense dominated time of possession in the third quarter, as they were on the field for nearly the entire time. Once the game got out of reach, it was apparent that Jacksonville's spirit was broken. They face Baltimore in Week 3 in London.

QB Blake Bortles finished 20-of-34 for 223 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in a 37-16 loss to the Titans. He added 29 yards on four carries and lost a fumble.

Fantasy Impact: It was a classic Bortles performance, being dreadful all game and getting most of his points when the game was out of sight. The Jaguars travel to London in Week 3 and Bortles is not in streaming contention against the tough Ravens defense with much safer options available. Another performance like this and the Jaguars could make Chad Henne the starter.

Telvin Smith has big game

Telvin Smith recorded an interception and a pass defended on eight total tackles in the Jaguars' loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: A huge game for the top-tier linebacker. While the 37 points allowed by the Jaguars doesn't describe the defensive battle in the first half, it was still a losing effort. Smith and the Jaguars will look to rebound against the Ravens in Week 3.

New signed Safety Calvin Pryor is out in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans. (Source: Jaguars.com)

Fantasy Impact: Pryor is new to the team and was not in line to start over Tashaun Gipson. The injury will hurt the depth of the Jaguars secondary that is dealing with injuries.

Abry Jones had limited practices all week. Jones is questionable to play against the Tennessee Titans in Week 2. (Source: Jaguars.com)

Fantasy Impact: Jones had a solid impact in Week 1 against the Houston Texans with half a sack and two QB hits. The Jaguars are going up against a better offense in Week 2 and need all their linemen healthy for Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans.

Allen Robinson had surgery earlier this week to repair his ACL that he tore in Week 1's matchup against the Houston Texans. (Source: Ian Rapoport via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: While this doesn't affect owners in season-long leagues, dynasty owners may want to take note. This should give Robinson enough time to heal before the beginning of next season, providing confidence that he will be able to rebound from the injury. He could be a buy-low target for dynasty teams.
