Lewis, who will turn 32 in May, will thus reprise his role as the Jaguars' No. 2 tight end behind Julius Thomas. On the heels of a 2015 season in which Lewis caught just 16 passes for 226 yards and no touchdowns, the veteran TE is off the fantasy radar as long as Thomas can stay healthy.
The Jaguars had been using rookie Rashad Greene on punt returns, but he was placed on short-term injured reserve prior to Week 3 against the Patriots. New England never had to punt in that game, so we never saw Greene's replacement. Marshall is a rookie who did some returning in the preseason.
Wolff was absent from the last three practices with what he described as soreness in the knee. He missed all spring workouts despite Chip Kelly declaring that he had been cleared by the doctor.
He was a full participant, however, when training camp began and said he was feeling as good as he had in over a year, per the Philadelphia Inquirer.
"The doctor is going in there to take a look at everything and hopefully we'll go with the quick route," Miller said. "If they can trim it, I'll be back on my feet the next day. If not, you have to wait for it to stitch together and then you take precautionary steps and that's maybe a couple of months."
Miller sat out the final two games of the season before opting for surgery. He signed a four-year, $16.25 million contract extension five days after the injury. His season ends with 30 tackles and one sack.
The third-year receiver has dealt with several injuries, namely to his hamstring, over his first two seasons in Jacksonville, which have prevented him from taking off after an electric college career at USC. Quarterback Blake Bortles said Wednesday that he and Lee have been able to work together extensively this offseason, calling the opportunity "huge." "It's been hard to get on the same page and work for an extended period of time, so I'm excited he's here and he's healthy," Bortles said. "What he can do is really special and he's super talented." Lee, who has 52 career catches for 613 yards and two touchdowns, will have an opportunity to grab hold of the third receiver spot behind Pro Bowler Allen Robinson and entrenched No. 2 receiver Allen Hurns. However, with Julius Thomas also back for his second season in Jacksonville, Lee may have to settle for being Bortles' fourth option this season, assuming he's able to stay healthy for more than a few weeks at a time.
Day fell this far for a reason -- he's a small tackle at 6-foot-1, 293 pounds and doesn't boast standout athleticism to make up for it -- but there's reason to believe he has the skill set to overachieve despite his modest athletic attributes. Day was a four-year contributor at Notre Dame and one of the team's best defenders over the last two years, and he should provide Jacksonville with a high-energy, disruptive rotational piece on the defensive line.
After a fractured hand kept him out of last week's game against the Colts, Posluszny returned to the field in a big way for the Jaguars on Sunday. Despite the loss, the veteran middle-linebacker recorded his third interception of the season, and brought his tackles total up to 114 on the year. He's the best player on the Jaguars' defense and he's a very solid IDP at his position when he's healthy.
Werner's signing comes just over a week after he was cut by the Colts, who drafted him 24th overall in 2013. He put up low numbers in his first two seasons, combining for 68 tackles, 6.5 sacks, one forced fumble, and five passes defensed, but he dropped off almost completely in his third season, recording just 13 tackles in 10 games. A return to the quality of play of his first two years will likely only be enough to net him a backup job at defensive end with the Jaguars.
Blackmon, who hasn't played since October of 2013, remains under contract with the Jaguars, but it seems increasingly unlikely that he'll play for the team again. At this time, the 25-year-old wideout remains under an indefinite suspension from the NFL.
Davis has posted 10 sacks over the past two seasons, while also combining for 30 tackles, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries over that span. In signing with the Jaguars, Davis provides depth and stability to Jacksonville's front-seven.
The big free-agent addition from the Packers hasn't been all that effective so far - he's recorded just seven tackles and hasn't forced a turnover in 177 snaps this season - but his presence will be needed when Jacksonville takes on Indianapolis this Sunday.
Myers has made 22-of-26 field goals on the year, but he's struggled mightily with extra points. After Sunday's pair of misses, which ended up costing Jacksonville a chance to tie the game, he's now misfired on six extra points this season. While he's certainly a candidate to be released this offseason, it seems unlikely that he'll be cut with only four games remaining.
Ramsey had surgery in May to repair a partial tear in his right meniscus, but was back running just a month later, easing concern over his status. Now, with Caldwell deeming his rookie first-rounder full-go for camp, Ramsey's knee problem appears to be in the past. The fifth overall pick in this year's draft, Ramsey has all the makings of a top-tier defensive back and should compete for a starting role once the Jaguars open camp Thursday.
Hurns, an undrafted free agent out of Miami, has developed into one of the top targets in the Jaguars' offensive attack. Last season he racked up 64 receptions for 1,031 yards and ten touchdowns. The 24-year-old's new deal assures him $20 million in guarantees.
T.J. Yeldon (groin) once again handled the bulk of the workload, but Grant received two carries on the day. One went for 11 yards, but the other was a disaster, as Grant blatantly fumbled on a toss play deep in Jacksonville territory. The Buccaneers were able to recover for a touchdown and Grant, understandably, did not see another carry the rest of the way. If Yeldon misses any time, Grant could see a slight increase in snaps, but Toby Gerhart and Bernard Pierce are probably ahead of him in the pecking order. Grant also handled kick return duties Sunday, logging 93 yards on three returns with a long of 42 yards.
"Right now, I’m not starting, and I understand that things aren’t always going to go my way," Gratz said. "I’m going to have to work for it in the offseason. Hopefully, one day I’ll get that spot back."
Gratz opened last season as a starter after being drafted in the third round in 2013, but he was replaced by McCray after four weeks. He again received a chance to start later in the season due to an injury to Alan Ball, but the Jaguars hit the free-agent market during the offseason for an upgrade at the starting postion.
"He’s really matured," coach Gus Bradley said. "I see a completely different mind-set this year than he was his first year. Sometimes, you’ve got to externally motivate guys, or get after them or challenge them. That’s how I felt Gratzie was. I remember two years ago or a year and a half ago, I told him until he changes his mind-set, we’re going to have to continue to motivate him. Well, he’s not motivated through that anymore. It feels all more internally. I think he’s made really good strides. We’ll see how it carries over, but his mind-set, I really like how it is."
Lawrence was a healthy scratch for his two games on the active roster, and with the Jaguars suddenly needing another running back, the 23-year-old wideout was a casualty. Lawrence will likely revert back to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Robinson reportedly fell asleep at the wheel of the car and partially drove the vehicle into a retention pond. He was deemed sober by the responding officers, however, and, fortunately, neither he nor the lone passenger were injured during the incident. 'Shoelace' should be full-go for training camp, where he will be competing with Corey Grant for kick return duties, as well as a reserve role at running back behind both the newly-signed Chris Ivory and incumbent starter T.J. Yeldon.
With Ivory in the fold, the Jaguars have two starting-caliber running backs, but it's unclear whether they favor one over the other at this point. The more experienced Ivory is likely to open the season as the No. 1 back, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he and Yeldon end up sharing carries relatively evenly when all is said and done. Ivory topped 1,000 yards last season, though Yeldon may have done the same had he not suffered a knee injury in December.
Amukamara has missed 25 games in five seasons since the Giants used a first-round pick on him, but has proven to be a solid cover cornerback when healthy. Coming off 63 tackles and one interception in 11 appearances last season, Amukamara could very well earn the Jaguars' No. 1 corner position, and adds more experience to a Jacksonville secondary that also signed talented safety Tashuan Gipson this week.
The severity of the injury is still unknown, but the undrafted cornerback will now begin his training camp on the sidelines. The 5-foot-9 corner can be taken off the NFI list at any point.
Joeckel, the starting left tackle, will give way to his backup, Sam Young. His absence will provide a slight boost to the Miami defense.
The Dolphins are 6 1/2-point favorites.
"Wells did a pretty good job when he stepped in," coach Gus Bradley told the paper. "The reason why we had him up [active] over Sam Young is because of his flexibility. He could play left tackle and right tackle. Sam does a good job at right tackle so we'll talk more about that, but it will be one of those two."
The Jaguars host the Texans on Sunday.
The 2014 fifth-rounder finishes up his 2015 season with a fantasy-friendly 128 tackles, to go along with 2.5 sacks and a pick in 14 games. He's on track to reprise his starting outside linebacker role for the Jags in 2016, an assignment that will make Smith -- whose shoulder issue will not require offseason surgery -- worthy of continued IDP utility next year.
Thomas underwent surgery on his finger after suffering an injury during the preseason, which kept him out of the Jaguars' first four regular season games. He got off to a slow start in his first game against Tampa Bay, catching just two passes for 20 yards but was able to get on track the following week, hauling in seven catches (13 targets) for 78 yards and a score in a loss to Houston. Thomas' production varied greatly week-to-week, but he came into his own midway through the year when he reached the endzone in four straight games between Nov. 19 and Dec. 13. Included in that span was a nine-catch, 116-yard performance in a loss to the Chargers, a game that would prove to be his most productive in a Jaguars uniform. Coming off of a relatively disappointing first season, Thomas has the makings of a decent buy-low candidate in 2016, as he'll have an entire offseason to get healthy and jell with quarterback Blake Bortles and the rest of the Jaguaras' young receiving corps.
Fowler sustained a torn ACL on the first day of May minicamp and underwent surgery. He has begun rehabbing, but will not play this year.
Sterling thrived at Monmouth (N.J.) with 212 receptions for 2,615 yards and 22 touchdowns in 43 games.
Colvin will remain eligible to participate in offseason and preseason activities, but will be sidelined for four games once the regular season kicks off. With Colvin out, offseason signing Price Amukamara becomes increasingly likely to start opposite Davon House at cornerback to begin this season.
While the specifics of the injury remain unclear, Robinson was unable to practice with the team on Friday. Coach Gus Bradley indicated he wasn't sure if Robinson would participate in the Jaguars' upcoming mandatory minicamp that starts on Jun. 14, so it's definitely something to keep an eye on over the next week or so. Robinson exploded for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns on 80 receptions last season and should remain the team's top receiving threat once back from what is widely considered a minor hamstring injury.
Henne hasn't taken a snap since the midpoint of Week 3 during the 2014 season, but his experience under offensive coordinator Greg Olson provides the Jaguars with an insurance policy for Blake Bortles.
Ivory signed a two-year deal with Jacksonville after spending the previous three seasons in a Jets uniform. The veteran, who rushed for 1,070 yards last season, will split duties with second-year back T.J. Yeldon, and at this point it's unclear exactly how the workload will be shared. The expectation is that Ivory will technically be the No. 1 back, though the Times-Union suggests the number of carries could be close to even. It's also possible that, with two capable backs, the Jags opt to ride the hot hand on a series-to-series basis.
With Marqise Lee downgraded from probable to questionable, Washington was called up to provide some receiving depth. He's still firmly behind Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Bryan Walters on the depth chart, so it's unlikely he will see many targets Sunday at New England.
Those include quarterback Blake Bortles (foot), center Luke Bowanko (wrist), defensive end Andre Branch (groin), defensive end Chris Clemons (knee), running back Toby Gerhart (ribs), wide receiver Cecil Shorts III (shoulder) and wide receiver Tommy Streeter (abdomen).
Gray doubled his workload in his second game in Jacksonville from five touches to 10. His total yards decreased, however, from 31 to 27. Though the diminished production no doubt has a lot to do with going from playing one of the league's worst defenses in New Orleans to one of the best in Houston, Gray showed nothing that would indicate that he'll challenge T.J. Yeldon for carries in 2016.
The report notes that the defensive lineman's anticipated five or six-year deal with Jacksonville is expected to average in the range of $15 million per season. Jackson is coming off a 2015 season in which he recorded 45 tackles and five sacks for the Broncos, with the Florida Times-Union suggesting that Jackson seems likely "to play the three-technique defensive tackle position" with the Jaguars, while splitting time with Sen'Derrick Marks.
With Corey Grant (hip) landing on the IR and T.J. Yeldon (groin) still very much a question mark for Sunday's game against the Bills, Banyard was promoted to provide some depth at the running back position. Considering Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson will likely get most of looks out of the backfield, Banyard shouldn't be viewed as a viable fantasy option at this time. However, that could easily change if Robinson or Gerhart suffers an injury of their own.
Greene has seen a reduced role in the receiving game with Marqise Lee returning to full health, but he remains Jacksonville's primary punt returner. After taking one back last week against Indianapolis, Greene was limited to only 17 combined yards on two punt returns Sunday.
Jack was forced to miss rookie minicamp while completing the rest of the academic year, but the linebacker will now join the rest of his teammates as team activities begin to ramp up. The second-round pick is expected to be a difference-maker in Year 1, and his sideline-to-sideline speed could keep him on the field in third down situations from the start.
The status of Walters is of more import to the Jags' depth at wideout that than it to fantasy owners, with Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns (on hand to man the team's starting WR slots on Sunday.
Ngakoue might not be especially well known after playing for a bad Maryland team, but he was very productive over the last two years, totaling 19 sacks and 28 tackles for loss. He'll be a fine prospect to groom in the Chris Clemons role of the Jacksonville defense.
Bortles remade his throwing motion with the help of House last offseason, but stated this year's monthly "tune-ups" are focused on his hips and shoulders. After enjoying a statistical breakout in Year 2, Bortles seems motivated to further improve his mechanics heading into his third season, which could result in less erratic play overall.
The former category consists of linebackers LaRoy Reynolds (neck) and Jeremiah George (ankle). The probables are quarterback Blake Bortles (wrist), defensive ends Andre Branch (groin) and Chris Clemons (knee), safety Josh Evans (elbow), cornerback Demetrius McCray (ankle) and wideout Cecil Shorts (illness).
The best of the bunch was wideout Allen Robinson, who caught five passes for 60 yards. Tight end Clay Harbor chipped in with three catches for 28 yards while running back Jordan Todman added three receptions for 27 yards and two rushes for six yards. Also contributing were tight end Nic Jacobs (1-14) and wideouts Marqise Lee (1-13), Ace Sanders (1-10) and Allen Hurns (1-9).
Running back Toby Gerhart managed two yards on four carries for Jacksonville, which has embarked on its bye week.
Marks was a participant during individual drills for the first time this offseason after suffering torn triceps during November of the 2015 campaign, leading to an injured reserve designation. "It felt good just getting back, trusting the process, going out and not having any hiccups," Marks said Friday regarding his return to the practice field. The 6-foot-2, 294-pound veteran also believes he'll be a full participant for training camp, which begins in late July. He's expected to receive a lighter snap load throughout the 2016 regular season regardless, one reason being the addition of Malik Jackson in free agency.
Gipson, who turns 26 in August, will bolster the Jaguars' free safety position, an area that the team has been trying to beef up. He's coming off a 2015 season in which he notched 60 tackles in two picks in 13 games, though in 2014 Gipson's ball-hawking skills were evident, as he picked off six passes in 11 games for the Browns.
Skuta's arrest reportedly occurred in Orlando on June 19, and the Jaguars are aware of the situation but gathering more information at the moment. Although whether Skuta's situation will impact his availability in unknown right now, the 30-year-old is expected to battle rookie Myles Jack for a starting outside linebacker role this season.
Odrick, 27, spent his first five seasons in Miami with the Dolphins. He posted 29 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble while playing every game last season.
