The veteran picked up a touchdown in Week 2 against the Chargers but has otherwise been a near-nonfactor in the Jacksonville offense. He has only eight catches for 97 yards on the season and hasn't been targeted more than three times in any of the Jaguars' five games. Julius Thomas is firmly the tight end to own in Jacksonville, though even he has been disappointing as a fantasy commodity this season, and that trend continued Sunday (two catches, 28 yards).
Ellis boosted his chances of making the Titans roster with a strong red zone performance, but the undrafted free agent's chances are still bleak with established veterans Delanie Walker, Anthony Fasano, Craig Stevens and Phillip Supernaw already around. He scored just one touchdown in two years with the Tennessee Volunteers, so don't expect a repeat of this performance any time soon.
Wolff suffered a hamstring injury during Jacksonville's third preseason game against the Bengals. However, no timetable has been provided for his return.
The news shouldn't come as a surprise, as the defensive tackle was told he would miss the remainder of the season after tearing his Achilles tendon in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. The team promoted Richard Ash from the practice squad to fill Miller's roster spot.
While the Jaguars' offense struggled mightily for much of the day, Lee was the lone bright spot, as he notched the first 100-yard game of his career. Lee has quietly emerged as a quality No. 3 receiver behind Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns and has seen at least seven targets in each of the last five weeks. The former USC star is yet to reach the end zone this season, however.
Davis played in 13 games as a rookie last year. Amerson has played in 31 games over the last two seasons.
Koyack needed surgery in late September to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, but recovered swiftly and was able to participate in every practice this week, ultimately logging a full session on Friday. However, he remains buried behind on the depth chart behind Julius Thomas and Marcedes Lewis.
Day has been injured for the past few weeks, but could still make the final roster given he performs well throughout the rest of the preaseason and gets back to full health. He won't have much IDP value, as he's buried on the defensive line depth chart.
After being released by the Bills in September, Hill was picked up by the Saints and finished out the year on their practice squad. The Eastern Michigan product could have a tough time cracking Cincinnati's roster purely as a running back given the team's depth at the position.
Parnell sat out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday nursing his groin injury. The fact that he returned to practice without any limitations gives the impression that he should be ready to play Sunday.
Posluszny has been doing what he does best over the last four games, as he's averaging 10 tackles to go along with 1.5 sacks. As he's proven over the last three years, he'll consistently average nearly 10 tackles per contest while chipping in with a small number of sacks and interceptions. There are few players that provide the weekly stability that he brings to lineups in IDP leagues
Sample was injured during the preseason with what was believed to be just a stinger, but the issue appears to be more severe than originally expected as he's been placed on injured reserve. The 24-year-old safety will look to get back to full health before trying once again to make an NFL roster.
Grant's pick-six, a 39-yard return, was the first score of the game. Expected to compete with Senquez Golson and first round draft pick Artie Burns for defensive snaps, Grant may have an opportunity for increased playing time after Golson (foot) underwent Lisfranc surgery and is expected to miss four months.
Taken fifth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Jaguars, Blackmon hasn't played in an NFL game since being suspended indefinitely back on Nov. 1, 2013 for a violation of the league's substance abuse program. Though he remains listed on Jacksonville's roster, the the 26-year-old wideout seems increasingly unlikely to play for the team again.
Myers connected from 22, 46 and 49 yards, and he's now 7-of-9 overall on the season, with both misses coming from beyond 50 yards. The consistency, or lack thereof, of the Jaguars' offense may be Myers' biggest hindrance, though he remains a mid-tier kicker in most fantasy formats. The Jaguars are on bye in Week 5 before heading to Chicago for a Week 6 matchup with the Bears.
Ramsey, the Jaguars first-round draft pick back in April, made his NFL regular season debut on Sunday. He drew the start at cornerback, but temporarily left the game with a minor ankle sprain. However, Ramsey returned later in the contest and finished with two tackles, which suggests the injury is unlikely to be a factor moving forward. Unless he's limited at practice throughout the week, expect Ramsey to be a full go moving forward.
Hurns served as the leading receiver on a night where Blake Bortles was able to accumulate plenty of stats in the second half due to a large deficit. The third-year wideout saw double-digit targets for the third time this season and came up just short of his first 100-yard effort of the campaign as well. With 56 looks through the first seven contests, the former Miami Hurricane is firmly entrenched as the Bortles' second-most targeted pass catcher, keeping him viable in all fantasy formats.
The Ohio State product has been underwhelming in the early going. Although he appeared in 13 games for the Jaguars last season, Bennett was only able to tally 10 combined tackles. The revamped Jaguars defense is hoping that a healthy Bennett could be a solid return on investment during the regular season.
Grant was questionable heading into Sunday's game against the Bears before ultimately being ruled inactive. The toe injury does not appear to be too serious at this point given his full participation at practice Wednesday.
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.
It wasn't as if Robinson was flush with production prior to Chris Ivory returning to the the lineup as he had collected just five touches in the first two weeks of the season. Ivory's return is a back-breaker for Robinson. Only Chicago has run the ball less than Jacksonville through Week 3, so it isn't as though there are a boatload of opportunities to be had. With two quality backs and a mobile quarterback, it's fairly safe to say that Robinson will be relegated to being the runt of the litter.
Yeldon now has just nine carries over the last two games, but his four catches Thursday equaled his second-best reception total of the season. Due to the Jaguars falling into a 27-0 hole by halftime, rushing opportunties were at a premium, as Yeldon and backfield mate Chris Ivory combined for just seven carries on the night. With neither back truly separating themselves from the other to date and the Jacksonville offense in a significant state of disfunction most weeks, Yeldon's fantasy prospects continue be both capped and clouded at best.
Amukamara appears to be ready for Thursday's tilt against the Titans after seeing limited reps in practice both Monday and Tuesday. If he suffers any kind of setback, look for Aaron Colvin to see additional reps at cornerback.
Woodard had torn an Achilles' tendon during the team's offseason program and was never expected to be ready for the regular season opener. Now, he's officially ineligible to play until Week 7. However, it's unclear what sort of role he'll serve when healthy.
Joeckel, the starting left tackle, will give way to his backup, Sam Young. His absence will provide a slight boost to the Miami defense.
"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.
While Smith can still add some polish to his game, he's been among the Jaguars' most reliable defenders over the past two seasons. The Florida State product notched 104 combined tackles as a rookie and followed up with 128 tackles in 14 games last season. The Jaguars added high-upside rookie Myles Jack in the second round of the draft, and while Jack is expected to gradually take on a larger workload as the season progresses, his development isn't expected to result in significantly fewer snaps for Smith. In Week 1 against the Packers, Smith will be tasked with helping slow down Eddie Lacy, and he'll be tested in coverage against tight end Jared Cook.
By placing Josh Wells on IR, the Jaguars effectively created another roster spot to resign Benn. The 27-year-old is likely to serve as a depth receiver behind the likes of both Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.
Brown's three-year tenure with the Ravens ended abruptly Saturday, but he has found a new home with Jacksonville. Despite the fact that he has never started an NFL game, Brown appeared in all 16 games for Baltimore last season.
Thomas helped break the ice for the Jaguars with his 10-yard score, but the touchdown came after they were already facing a 27-0 deficit early in the third quarter. However, it marked Thomas' second straight game crossing the goal line, and third time overall on the season. While he hasn't cleared 28 yards since Week 2, the veteran tight end has seen five or more targets in all but one game this season. Although he continues to be a third option for Blake Bortles behind Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson, the sixth-year pro has established himself as a solid red-zone threat.
Cyprien has now recorded at least nine tackles in three different games, and he's averaging eight stops per contest on the year. Although he's failed to record a sack or interception, his tackle numbers make him a viable option as a defensive back in IDP leagues.
Sterling returned to the practice field on Tuesday and seems likely to play in Thursday's tilt with the Titans. The tight end hasn't played the past two weeks due to his foot aliment, but would likely serve in a reserve role on Thursday should he be cleared to play.
Nix hoped to add some depth to the defensive line. He was competing with Montori Hughes and Jay Bromley for a backup role at defensive tackle. The Notre Dame product recorded four tackles in as many preseason games with the team.
Colvin had recorded two tackles before exiting the contest. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, but Prince Amukamara figures to see an increased role while Colvin's sidelined.
The Jags' No. 1 receiver was considerably inefficient with the whopping 15 looks he received, hauling in less than half his targets for the second time this season. The first occasion was in the opener, when Robinson had the exact same catch-to-target figures. The 23-year-old has now failed to score in three straight games and has yet to record his first 100-yard effort of the season. He's also managed to bring in just 32 of his 70 targets to date (45.7 percent), a notably poorer success rate than the 52.2 percent he tallied in his breakout 2015 campaign. With the team in a freefall, Robinson will try to help right the ship against the Chiefs in Week 9.
Henne played the entire second half, leading Jacksonville to a pair of touchdowns on six drives, and eventually kneeling twice to end the game. He doesn't have competition for the No. 2 quarterback job, though the Jags might retain sixth-round rookie Brandon Allen as a developmental project.
With the Jaguars in a 27-0 hole by intermission, the running game was largely a luxury they couldn't afford for the balance of the game. Ivory thus ended up with his lowest amount of carries and yards on the season and given his persistent ball security issues, he may see his touches considerably reduced irrespective of game flow going forward.
Washington went down with hamstring earlier in the week which evidently will keep him sidelined for an extended amount of time. The Jaguars decided to instead part ways with the wideout instead of keeping him on the IR. The second-year man could hope to return to Jacksonville once completely healthy.
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).
With left guard Luke Joeckel (knee) placed on injured reserve, the Jaguars evidently needed reinforcements along their offensive line. Enter Harris, who has 34 games of regular season experience though wasn't able to survive the final roster cuts in Atlanta prior to the start of the season. He'll now serve as depth to begin his tenure in Jacksonville.
Jackson, who signed a six-year deal with the Jaguars this offseason worth up to $85.5 million, said he spoke with coaches during OTA's and took their advice to heart. "The two things they talked to me about before we left for our break was losing weight and my cardio," Jackson said. "Coach Wash pulled me aside and said that's what I needed to work on." The 26-year-old played at around 308 pounds in 2015, when he recorded 5.0 sacks and 45 combined tackles, helping to lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl victory. As the headliner of a seven-man Jags free agent class, expectations will be high for Jackson, but head coach Gus Bradley is pleased with what he's seen thus far. "He has done a good job," Bradley said Friday. "I'll tell you what, he does a good job working on the edge. You know when you see him on a guard. Good technique and conditioning, he plays on the edge a little bit more and he shows some rushing."
With Greene inactive, Marqise Lee could see more looks as a returner for the Jaguars on Thursday.
Jack has been an impressive youngster throughout the early portion of the preseason and will likely receive first-team snaps at middle linebacker during Sunday's matchup with Cincinnati. According to Bradley, the game appears to be slowing down for the rookie. Jack projects to carve out some sort of meaningful role with the Jacksonville defense in his first season.
Walters was released by the Jaguars last week, but it did not take long for him to return. It appears the Jaguars want a little more depth at wide receiver. The 28-year-old failed to take the field in both games he played with the team prior to his release last week.
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.
While the overall stat line paints a largely different picture, Bortles once again couldn't keep the offense on sustained drives consistently. He was unable to get his team into the end zone until early in the third quarter-- after the Jaguars already faced a 27-0 deficit-- when he capped off an 11-play, 75-yard drive with a 10-yard scoring pass to Julius Thomas. Bortles then added a pair of touchdown passes to Allen Hurns and Bryan Walters in the last three minutes of the game, but the numbers just served as window dressing in the double-digit rout. The outing was Bortles' third 300-yard performance of the season and his fourth with double-digit touchdown passes, so he continues to be serviceable for fantasy purposes, even as he has been frequently ineffective in a real-world football sense. Bortles and the Jags will try to improve on their 2-5 record when they take on the Chiefs in a Week 9 road tilt.
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.
Odrick was unable to practice during the week, rendering this status unsurprising. The short week likely did not help for his recovery. Tyson Alualu will presumably see an expanded role with Odrick sidelined.
