Marcedes Lewis Fantasy News

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

According to Mark Long of the Associated Press, the Jaguars have brought back tight end Marcedes Lewis on a three-year deal.

The Rams reportedly made a late push, but he decided to stay put where he’s spent all 10 years of his career.

Lewis caught just 16 passes last year and 18 the year before, well off the kind of production that once made him their franchise player.

But there’s something to be said for consistency, and Lewis lends the kind of blocking and gravity the Jaguars can use as they try to make the next step.

Fantasy Impact:

Of course, Julius Thomas will remain the pass-catching option at the TE position for the Jags.

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles reached 'a different level' on Wednesday

Jacksonville.com - [Full Article]

Blake Bortles has looked good throughout camp, but appeared to reach a different level on Wednesday. Bortles completed 10 of 15 passes in 11-on-11 work and was 7 of 8 in seven-on-seven while being more aggressive with the ball downfield than usual.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley praised Bortles’ work ethic in learning Greg Olson’s offense in the summer. Bortles says he can tell he’s playing faster in his decision making. He’s also making the right decisions more than last season.

“It’s more educated now,” Bortles said. “I’m knowing the matchup and situation better. Last year, it was like, let’s chunk it. It’s definitely more of an educated guess now.”

The Jaguars could become an efficient red-zone team with Julius Thomas, Allen Robinson and tight end Marcedes Lewis in the fold. The 6-foot-5 Bortles will have multiple reliable jump-ball targets.

“We have three guys that can go catch a fade at any moment. It’s awesome to have weapons like that. They can get up and jump and make plays. It’s definitely going to be fun to do that.”

Fantasy Impact:

Bortles averaged 12.0 fantasy points per game, which led to a #24 finish at his position. He's a passer who could make a leap in his second season if the Jaguars can give him time to throw and he can clean up his fundamentals. The receiving corps is young but talented, with Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee all capable of producing when given the opportunity. The team signed Julius Thomas to provide a dangerous weapon at tight end. Bortles averaged nearly 30 yards rushing, so he offers some baseline production as a runner. If Bortles can make a leap, the Jacksonville offense will be a lot better than expected.

Bucs' Austin Seferian-Jenkins 'most active' of 'highly productive' TE group

Buccaneers - [Full Article]

The Buccaneers’ tight ends, as a group, were highly productive during practice. But Austin Seferian-Jenkins may have been the most active. He worked with several different groups and came on strong for 11-on-11 drills during the final 30 minutes of practice.

Fantasy Impact:

New OC Dirk Koetter has a history of featuring the tight end, coaxing a 58-700-10 season out of Marcedes Lewis in 2010 to go along with the 176 catches for 1,965 yards and 16 touchdowns in two seasons with Tony Gonzalez in 2012-2013. Seferian-Jenkins had an injury-riddled rookie season, but is a breakout candidate in his second season with a new quarterback and offensive coordinator.

Bucs Beat: Austin Seferian-Jenkins 'expected to be featured' in new offense

Pewter Report - [Full Article]

After finishing 2-14 with one of the league’s worst offenses, the Buccaneers replaced interim OC Marcus Arroyo with a proven NFL offensive coordinator in Dirk Koetter, and the one player who could benefit the most is Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who is expected to be featured in Tampa Bay’s new offense.

The Bucs are so high on Seferian-Jenkins that he’s expected to be the starter in 2015 and the team did not go out in free agency and add a new tight end. The Bucs re-structured Myers’ contract to reflect the role of a backup tight end, and also re-signed blocking tight end Luke Stocker, but that’s it. The Bucs aren’t expected to address the tight end position in the draft, either, which means it’s up to Seferian-Jenkins to produce in 2015 and live up to his potential after an injury-riddled rookie campaign that ended with him on injured reserve due to an ailing back.

Seferian-Jenkins will be a featured weapon in Koetter’s offense and he should return to the form he showed in Washington when he hauled in 146 catches for 1,840 yards and 21 touchdowns in three seasons for the Huskies. While Koetter has the reputation for developing pocket passers everywhere he’s gone, he has also made stars out of tight ends.

Fantasy Impact:

Koetter has a history of featuring the tight end, coaxing a 58-700-10 season out of Marcedes Lewis in 2010 to go along with the 176 catches for 1,965 yards and 16 touchdowns in two seasons with Tony Gonzalez in 2012-2013. Seferian-Jenkins had an injury-riddled rookie season, but is a breakout candidate in his second season with a new quarterback and offensive coordinator.

Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee, doubtful) missed practice again Friday and is doubtful for Week 12. Midweek downgrades due to new injuries typically result in a missed game and the doubtful tag confirms that he’s likely to miss Week 12. There are no good alternatives in Miami, though owners could pickup and start someone like Coby Fleener, Niles Paul or Marcedes Lewis.

Allen Robinson's injury opens the door for Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee

Wednesday, November 12, 2014, 11:26am

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

Of all the rookies drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars to help the offense, the only one who hasn't made a noticeable impact at some point this season has been wide receiver Marqise Lee.

That's about to change.

With Tuesday's announcement that fellow second-round pick Allen Robinson will miss the final six games because of a stress fracture in his right foot, look for Lee to become more involved in the passing game.

Due in large part to problems with both hamstrings during training camp and early in the regular season, Lee has only 13 receptions for 141 yards and no touchdowns through 10 games.

Fantasy Impact:

There's nothing revelatory here, but it gives us a chance to discuss the Jaguar WR corps and how it might look now that Allen Robinson is out of the picture. Cecil Shorts should be the most-targeted player if he can stay healthy, which has been an issue this season. But we believe Allen Hurns will hold the most fantasy value due to his big play ability and status as the #25 fantasy WR this season. In the six games where Hurns has played more than 70% of the snaps, he has averaged 3.8 catches for 65 yards and 0.8 TD (on 7.3 targets), or 11.5 fantasy points, which are strong WR2 numbers. We can't count on the touchdowns, but the yardage is reasonable. The only issue with Hurns at this point is that he was knocked out of Week 10 with a concussion, and his status for Week 12 is unclear. As for Lee, we believe he'll serve as the team's WR3 as he hasn't played more than 40% of the snaps since Week 2. With TE Marcedes Lewis due back in Week 12, we don't see Lee as a major fantasy factor barring an injury to Shorts and/or Hurns.
