Jaguars' Marqise Lee: Avoids broken ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

X-rays on Lee's ankle were negative, and he's scheduled for an MRI on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Lee was removed from Sunday's 45-7 win over the Texans in the first quarter, needing help from two trainers to leave the field. The negative X-rays don't necessarily rule out a long-term injury, as he could still be diagnosed with a severe sprain. With Allen Hurns (ankle) already sidelined, the Jaguars relied on Keelan Cole, Jaydon Mickens and Dede Westbrook at wide receiver in Sunday's blowout victory. Cole was one of the breakout stars of Week 15, catching seven of nine targets for 186 yards and a touchdown against a weak Houston secondary. Cole and Westbrook likely would start in Week 16 against the 49ers if both Lee and Hurns were to miss the contest.

Jaguars' T.J. Yeldon: Produces 52 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yeldon carried seven times for 27 yards and caught four of five targets for an additional 25 yards in Sunday's 45-7 win over the Texans.

In the absence of Leonard Fournette, Yeldon equaled his second-highest number of touches in a game this season. He mustered just 3.9 yards per carry, but he did tie for second on the team in targets and catches. Yeldon wasn't particularly impressive with Fournette out of commission, so any fantasy stock he carried would likely elude him if the team's lead back returns next week against the 49ers.

Jaguars' Jaydon Mickens: Scores two touchdowns versus Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mickens caught four of five targets for 61 yards and a pair of touchdowns during Sunday's 45-7 win over the Texans.

Mickens came into the game without a catch in his young career, but he received an opportunity due to the early exit of Marqise Lee (ankle). He wound up tying for second on the team in targets while catching touchdown passes of five and 14 yards on back-to-back possessions in the second quarter. Mickens' emphatic emergence certainly caught the eye, but it remains to be seen how his usage will be impacted by the possible returns of Lee and Leonard Fournette next week against the 49ers.

Jaguars' Chris Ivory: Can't take advantage of increased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ivory carried 17 times for 42 yards in Sunday's 45-7 win over the Texans.

Ivory was thrust into a featured role due to the absence of Leonard Fournette (quadriceps), but he managed just 2.5 yards per carry and had a long gain of eight yards. He's failed to take advantage in any of the three games Fournette's missed this season, averaging 2.9 yards per carry despite receiving 54 totes in that sample. Corey Grant and T.J. Yeldon were both more productive than Ivory on a per-touch basis, but none of the backs will boast a reliable fantasy outlook next week against the 49ers if Fournette is cleared to return.

Jaguars' Keelan Cole: Explodes for 186 receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole caught seven of nine targets for 186 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 45-7 win over the Texans.

Cole led the team in targets, catches and yardage in this one, finding the end zone from nine yards out just before halftime. He comfortably notched a new career high in receiving yards, thanks in large part to a 73-yard gain to set up a score. Marqise Lee (ankle) left the game in the first quarter, according to Michael DiRocco of ESPN, which opened the door for Cole to play an expanded role. He's now scored in three straight weeks, however, and should continue operating as the team's top deep threat next week against the 49ers, regardless of Lee's availability.
