Jacksonville Jaguars Roster
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette has never been much of a receiving threat, but based on the current construction of the roster, that looks likely to change this upcoming season. Of the four backs currently projected to make the roster -- Fournette, Ryquell Armstead, Alfred Blue, and Thomas Rawls -- only Fournette has had a season with at least 20 receptions, says Phillip Heilman of The Athletic. Barring a late signing, Fournette looks to be used as a every down back when healthy. Fournette is being drafted as an RB2 right now, but he has tremendous upside if no receiving back is brought in for third-down work.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee (knee) could start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, which would cost him the first six games of the regular season. Lee was expected to be back healthy and ready to earn one of Jacksonville's top roles on offense, but his recovery from a knee injury suffered last preseason has been slow. Lee will be fighting an uphill battle to earn a role when he returns to the field and might wind up as Jacksonville's fourth receiver when all is said and done. Avoid him in redraft leagues.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have released quarterback Tanner Lee. That leaves the Jags with three quarterbacks on their roster, including starting quarterback Nick Foles and rookie Gardner Minshew. Lee had been fighting with Alex McGough for the third-string job, but it now appears that McGough will either have that spot on the roster or the team will choose to go into the year with just two quarterbacks. This doesn't change much from a re-draft standpoint, though it does seem to suggest that head coach Doug Marrone has more trust in Minshew heading into the year, making him an intriguing bench option in dynasty leagues.
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles hasn't played yet in the preseason, but there's already reason to worry about the team's offensive line depth and how that could impact Foles this year. Jacksonville's two starting tackles -- Cam Robinson and Jawaan Taylor -- are injured, and the backup tackles have struggled in pass protection this preseason. If the Jaguars don't get healthy on the line, Foles could be under a lot of pressure. Foles is being drafted outside of the top-20 at quarterback, and while he has the upside to finish as a solid QB2, things need to go almost perfectly for that to happen. These line issues are a scary start.
In a bit of a surprising move, the Jacksonville Jaguars have taken wide receiver Marqise Lee (knee) off the Physically Unable to Perform list. While some in the Jacksonville media expected Lee to open the regular season on the PUP list and miss the first six weeks of the season, Saturday's move suggests that he'll be available in some role once the regular season rolls around. Lee's likely to be the team's fourth receiver for now, but we've seen in the past that he has the talent to eventually take on a larger role. This move means that either Terrelle Pryor or Tre McBride will likely be cut at the end of the preseason.
