Jaguars' Tyler Eifert: Minor involvement Thursday
Eifert caught two of three targets for 11 yards during Thursday's 31-13 loss to Miami.
Eifert led the team's tight ends with 40 offensive snaps and didn't find much involvement in the passing game despite the fact Jacksonville mostly played from behind Thursday. James O'Shaughnessy officially received the start but played only 27 offensive snaps, though he caught three of four targets for 29 yards. Eifert remains the Jaguars' top tight end, but his six catches for 55 yards and one touchdown through three games illustrates the difficulty in utilizing him as a fantasy option.... See More ...

Jaguars' Chris Thompson: Splits backfield snaps
Thompson rushed twice for three yards and caught five of six targets for 35 yards during Thursday's 31-13 loss to the Dolphins.
The veteran back and rookie James Robinson both played 30 offensive snaps during the loss, though you'd never realize based on each player's production, as Robinson had 11 carries for 46 yards and two touchdowns while catching six passes for 83 yards. The playing time clearly is there for Thompson as he's played 31 and 30 offensive snaps the past two weeks, but his 65 scrimmage yards on 12 touches better illustrates his involvement in the offense. The 29-year-old is seeing plenty of snaps in the passing-down role, but to this point Robinson is the only back on the team providing much production.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Chris Conley: Receives eight targets
Conley caught three of eight targets for 34 yards during Thursday's 31-13 loss to the Dolphins.
The 27-year-old led Jacksonville's wideouts in offensive snaps (53 of 66) and targets in the absence of DJ Chark (back/chest), but he was unable to turn it into significant production. It should have been as ideal situation for Conley with the Jaguars playing from behind most of the game, but RB James Robinson ended up being the only pass catcher to exceed 45 receiving yards. Conley has caught eight of 16 targets for 88 yards through three games and isn't a viable fantasy option, especially once Chark is back in the fold.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' DJ Chark: Slated to be 'fine'
Coach Doug Marrone said the Jaguars are awaiting the results of tests on Chark (back/chest) to determine how to proceed with his recovery, but the wide receiver is expected to be "fine," John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Operating on a short week before Thursday's eventual loss to the Dolphins, Jacksonville opted to keep Chark sidelined after he followed a LP/LP/DNP practice regimen due to back and chest injuries. Marrone's optimism regarding Chark's health is a good enough sign that he'll be available again in the near future, but fantasy managers will want to continue keeping close tabs on his status. In Chark's place Thursday, the Jaguars used a top WR trio of Chris Conley, Laviska Shenault and Keelan Cole, with Collin Johnson and Dede Westbrook occasionally filling in.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Leon Jacobs: Suffers torn ACL
Jacobs (knee) suffered a season-ending torn ACL during Thursday's loss to the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Jacobs had to be carted off the field Thursday, and Friday's MRI confirms a near worst-case scenario for the third-year pro. Jacksonville's defense has surrendered an average of 109 rushing yards per contest through three weeks, and the loss of Jacobs stands to further detract from the front seven's ability to stop the run. Cassius Marsh and Dakota Allen appear in line to handle increased defensive snaps going forward.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Myles Jack: Another 11-tackle showing
Jack notched 11 tackles (seven solo) during Thursday's 31-13 loss to the Dolphins.
Jack has put together three straight 11-tackle performances to kick off the season, thrusting him firmly onto the IDP radar as a viable option. The 25-year-old didn't have a single game with double-digit tackles in 2019, so his production may come back down, but he's slated for a prime matchup against the Bengals in Week 4.... See More ...

Jaguars' Josh Allen: First sack of 2020
Allen had two solo tackles and one sack during Thursday's 31-13 loss to the Dolphins.
Allen had accounted for three quarterback hits on the year heading into Thursday's contest, and he managed to chase down Ryan Fitzpatrick in the second half for his first official sack of the season. The second-year pro doesn't have much help in Jacksonville's pass rush, so he may have difficulties matching last year's 10.5 sack total, but he has a favorable matchup in Cincinnati on deck for Week 4....

Jaguars' Andrew Wingard: Avoids serious injury
Wingard suffered a minor groin pull during Thursday's 31-13 loss to the Dolphins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Wingard was ruled out from returning to Thursday's contest due to what was initially disclosed as a core muscle injury, but the results of his MRI on Friday have eliminated the possibility of a sports hernia. The starting safety will get the benefit of three extra days to get healthy before the Jaguars visit Cincinnati in Week 4.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Posts five catches in loss
Shenault secured five of six targets for 33 yards and rushed once for one yard in the Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Dolphins on Thursday.
The versatile rookie mainly stuck to receiver duties in the lopsided loss, a departure from Week 2 in particular, when he logged five rushes. However, his work through the air ticked up, as the six targets Shenault logged Thursday were his most yet through three games. The Colorado product figures to be progressively involved in multiple facets as the season unfolds, with the 10-day time span until a Week 4 road matchup against the Bengals potentially affording offensive coordinator Jay Gruden extra time to devise some specialty plays for the second-round pick....

Jaguars' Keelan Cole: Posts 67 total yards in loss
Cole brought in four of five targets for 43 yards and returned one kickoff for 24 yards in the Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Dolphins on Thursday.
With DJ Chark (chest) sidelined for Thursday's game, Cole was third in receptions and second in receiving yardage on the night. The 27-year-old has gotten plenty of attention from quarterback Gardner Minshew through the first three games of the season, as he's now logged 17 targets, 15 of which he's brought in for 148 yards and two touchdowns. Cole saw his role diminish last season while playing with Minshew and Nick Foles -- he slumped to a career-low 24 receptions for 361 yards over 16 games -- but his outlook appears much brighter through the first three games of 2020. Cole will look to keep up the momentum, with or without Chark available, when the Jaguars face the Bengals in a Week 4 road matchup in Sunday, Oct. 4.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' James Robinson: Top offensive weapon in loss
Robinson rushed 11 times for 46 yards and two touchdowns and brought in all six targets for 83 yards in the Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Dolphins on Thursday.
Even in a surprisingly lopsided loss, Robinson found a way to stand out yet again. Not only did the undrafted rookie free agent account for both of the Jaguars' scores, he also checked in tops on the team in receptions and receiving yardage. While game script prevented the Illinois State product from seeing the 16-carry workload he enjoyed in the first two games, he's now upped his reception total over that of the previous contest in two straight contests. Given his robust usage and the Bengals' questionable run defense, Robinson's fantasy prospects are favorable for a Week 4 road battle against Cincinnati on Sunday, Oct. 4.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Numbers go for naught in loss
Minshew completed 30 of 42 passes for 275 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in the Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Dolphins on Thursday. He also rushed three times for 22 yards and lost a fumble.
Minshew had one of the better stat lines you'll see for a quarterback on the wrong end of an 18-point decision. The second-year gunslinger once again displayed above-average accuracy while averaging 6.5 yards per attempt, but he found himself frequently under duress while taking four sacks and 10 hits overall. Minshew's first turnover, a third-quarter fumble at his own seven, was particularly costly and came on one of those sacks, while the second occurred late in the contest with Jacksonville trying to tack on a meaningless touchdown. Despite Thursday's so-so fantasy effort, Minshew does still sport solid numbers in that regard through his first three games, as he owns a 6:2 TD:INT and has quickly amassed 787 passing yards. He and his teammates will look to regroup ahead of a favorable Week 4 road matchup against the Bengals on Sunday. Oct. 4.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Cam Robinson: Ejected Thursday
Robinson has been ejected from Thursday's contest against the Dolphins, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL Jacksonville reports.
Robinson was ejected for making contact with an official. Will Richardson will slot in as Jacksonville's starting left tackle for the remainder of Thursday's game.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Brandon Wright: Leaves game with injury
Wright is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Dolphins due to a groin injury, John Shipley of Sports Illustrated reports.
Wright was promoted to Jacksonville's active roster Thursday to fill in for Josh Lambo (hip). If he can't return versus Miami, Logan Cooke stands to handle kicking duties for the Jaguars.... See More ... See Less
