Fantasy Impact: O'Shaughnessy tore his ACL in Week 5 last year. He likely won't make much of a fantasy impact for the Jaguars this season. The team signed Tyler Eifert in free agency to be their starter.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew II has been activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A bit of a scare for Minshew fantasy owners when he went on the list a few days ago, but he’s now cleared and good to go heading into the preseason. He could surprise people as a solid QB2 option this season with QB1 upside due to his rushing ability.

Fantasy Impact: Armstead necessarily didn’t test positive for Coronavirus, but has been with contact with someone who has. QB Gardener Minshew was also placed on the COVID-19 list as well. Fantasy owners should monitor the situation and check for updates as they come in. Armstead is expected to backup starting running back Leonard Fournette and is worth stashing in dynasty league formats.

Fantasy Impact: The LB/DE hybrid had a great 2019 for the LSU Tigers, recording 60 tackles and 6.5 sacks. He’ll join a rebuilding Jaguars team that isn’t expected to win very many games this season. Chaisson is expected to come in and produce immediately as a starting OLB in the Jaguars 3-4 defense. Jacksonville has now signed all 12 of their 2020 draft picks.

Second-round pick WR Laviska Shenault Jr. out of Colorado signs his rookie contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Doug Marrone envisions Shenault filling a variety of roles for the Jaguars this season. “You can put him in the backfield, he can play wildcat [quarterback], he can play the ‘F’ tight end,” said Marrone of his new weapon. Shenault figures to be given ample opportunities right out of the gates in Jacksonville and is an intriguing late round add in redraft fantasy leagues. He’s an ever better target for those playing in dynasty leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Hamilton will be paid $4.82M over four seasons on the standard rookie deal for a third-rounder. The 6-foot-4, 320 pound interior lineman recorded six sacks his senior season for Ohio State, propelling him into the 3rd-round of the NFL Draft.

Jaguars sixth-round pick TE Tyler Davis has officially signed his four-year rookie deal with the team. (Source: John Reid on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Johnson joins a Jacksonville squad with a veteran TE in Tyler Eifert and an up-and-comer in Josh Oliver, who the team drafted in the 3rd round just a year ago. Davis is viewed as more of a run-blocking tight end, which could come in handy early on as both Eifert and Oliver are seen as pass-catching tight ends.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed fifth-round pick WR Collin Johnson to a four-year rookie deal. (Source: John Reid on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A four-year player for the Texas Longhorns, Johnson was the 165th overall pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He joins an impressive group of receivers, including D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault Jr., Dede Westbrook, and Chris Conley. Johnson stands at an impressive 6-feet-6 and may be used as a red-zone weapon for Gardner Minshew this season. He’s just a deep dynasty stash at this point as he works his way up the Jaguars depth chart.

New Jaguars offensive coordinator Jay Gruden says D.J. Chark will be featured all over the formation this year, including the slot. (Source: Hays Carlyon on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Chark already ran 24% of his routes out of the slot last season so this might mean a major change in his role. However, it's nice to hear that Gruden wants to line him up in different spots throughout the season. The 23-year-old wideout went over 1,000 yards and scored eight touchdowns in 2019.

The Jaguars are declining Leonard Fournette’s fifth-year option and he should become a free agent after the 2020 season. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Fournette reportedly has been shopped around by the Jaguars all off-season. The team has declined his fifth-year option as they are ready to move on from the 25-year old running back. He could be traded at some point this season, but for now Fournette will remain in Jacksonville for at least one more season. Fournette logged 265 carries for 1,152 yards and three touchdowns across 15 games in 2019. He is currently 17th among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings.

According to Dov Kleiman, wide receiver Keelan Cole signed his one-year tender with Jaguars worth $3.2 million. (Source: Dov Kleiman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cole totaled 34 receptions for 361 yards and three touchdowns last season for the Jaguars. The Jaguars are hoping that Cole can illustrate some glimpses of his 2017 form when he had a career year posting 42 receptions for 748 yards and three touchdowns. Cole is worth a flier in deep dynasty leagues if fantasy owners have the space on their rosters.

A source has told Ian Rapoport that the Jaguars are releasing WR Marqise Lee. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lee, 28, has played five seasons with the Jaguars. He only played in six games last season as he was nursing a shoulder injury. He is reportedly feeling healthy and medically cleared. He could be a great addition to a team in need of a slot receiver with good hands.

CB Darqueze Dennard and the Jaguars were unable to come to an agreement on final terms on original three-year, $13.5M deal, making him a free agent once again. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dennard is back on the open market after his representation and the Jaguars couldn’t come to final terms on the contract. After spending six seasons in Cincinnati, Dennard finds himself as a free agent once again. The Jaguars were in desperate need of a corner after trading away both Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye in the last six months, but it looks like Dennard will not being filling in that hole for Jacksonville this season.

Per his agent, Jordan Woy, former Jaguars S Cody Davis has signed a deal with the New England Patriots. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Davis started his NFL career with the Rams in 2014 after going un-drafted out of Texas Tech. He didn’t really ever find his footing with them, but very much so resurrected his career as a special teams standout in 2019 for the Jaguars. Davis will now take his talents to New England, where he’ll have the opportunity to learn from one of the best to ever play the game on special teams, Matt Slater.
