Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said that running back Leonard Fournette will be a big part of the team's offense in 2019. "Im going to call it what it is: Hes going to be a major reason where our offense goes. Im not going to sugarcoat that. Leonard Fournette needs to be a big part of this offense," DeFilippo said. Fournette was a bust last year, missing eight games last season with injuries and one to a suspension. He finished with 439 yards rushing and five touchdowns after rushing for 1,040 yards and five scores as a rookie. The 24-year-old still has a lot of upside in a run-first offense with a better quarterback at the helm in Nick Foles, but he'll be a risk/reward low-end RB1 because of the fact he's only played in 21 games in his first two seasons in the NFL.
Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, who is in the final year of his rookie deal, reported to the team's organized team activities this week after leaving offseason workouts early. The 24-year-old has become a force on the Jags defensive line, tallying 29.5 sacks and 80 total tackles in his three seasons in the NFL, including a career-high 12 sacks in 2017. He has yet to miss a game so far in the NFL. Ngakoue is firmly on the IDP map heading into the 2019 season.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee (knee) was working/running on a side field at the start of practice on Tuesday, and he's expected to be brought along slowly this summer. Left tackle Cam Robinson (knee) also wasn't on the field for the start of practice. Lee might not return until late in the preseason, so the Jags obviously won't rush him this summer. He missed all of the 2018 season but should eventually be the team's No. 1 wideout when he returns to full health. Lee has yet to reach the 1,000-yard mark in his four seasons and had 56 receptions for 702 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games in 2017.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook and cornerback Jalen Ramsey were absent at the start of organized team activities this week. Westbrook is expected to report on Thursday. Ramsey has received criticism from the front office for his absence from offseason workouts, but he'll be there when it matters and remains one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. Westbrook took a big step last year and caught 66 passes for 717 yards and five touchdowns in his sophomore season, but he'll be the No. 2 wideout in 2019 with Marqise Lee back in the fold.
Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith announced on Instagram that he will not play in 2019 due to personal issues. The 28-year-old had a career-high 134 tackles, one sack, a forced fumble, fumble recovery and two interceptions last season. His absence this year will surely have a negative effect on the middle of Jacksonville's defense.
