Former Jaguars HC Gus Bradley has agreed to become DC for then Los Angeles Chargers, per sources.

Fantasy Impact:

Bradley coached back-to-back top 7 defenses (points allowed) in Seattle in 2011-12 before being hired to lead the Jaguars for four seasons. Last year, Jacksonville allowed the 6th-fewest yards while giving up the 8th-most points, an uncommon disparity.

Jaguars name Nathaniel Hackett the offensive coordinator.

Fantasy Impact:

Hackett was promoted to OC in Week 9, and the offense actually got worse on a points per drive basis (1.76 before/1.56 after) and in YPA (6.62/5.86). The two noticeable differences were that the Jaguars had more rushing attempts (19.1/28.7) and Blake Bortles' interceptions (1.29/.78) dropped to a respectable level. However, his passing yardage (272/223) and touchdowns (1.71/1.33) were down.

ESPN - [Full Article]

Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray, who led the AFC in rushing yards, could eventually need surgery to repair a toe injury he suffered in Week 8.

Murray said he suffered a torn plantar plate Oct. 27 in a Thursday night win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The plate is the ligament on the ball of the foot connected to the toe.

Fantasy Impact:

Murray said the injury impacted his ability to plant and explode. He said rest is the assigned treatment for the toe now.

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right wrist, right shoulder) took full practice reps all week. Bortles will be out there in a nice matchup with the Colts.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Colts QB Andrew Luck (right shoulder) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Luck should be fine to play in the Colts’ meaningless finale against the Jaguars.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 17. Ivory should lead the Jacksonville backs in touches with T.J. Yeldon on injured reserve.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (ankle) took limited practice reps all week. It looks like he’ll back up Chris Ivory.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Jaguars WR Arrelious Benn (concussion) took full practice reps all week.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (hamstring, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 17.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (hip, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 17. The Jaguars haven’t shown any sign that they’re shutting Lee down for the season, so he should be out there against the Colts.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Jaguars WR Neal Sterling (concussion, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 17.

Friday, December 30, 2016, 6:42pm

Jaguars TE Ben Koyack (knee) took limited practice reps all week.

Jags Beat: Denard Robinson could be team's RB1 Week 17

Tuesday, December 27, 2016, 5:15pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson says he should be able to play on Sunday against Indianapolis.

That’s a heap of good news for the Jaguars, who can’t seem to keep running backs healthy this season.

The team put T.J. Yeldon (ankle) on injured reserve on Monday. Chris Ivory has missed four games because of various injuries and he might not be able to play this week against the Colts because of a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Things are much better if Robinson is able to play after missing three games because of an ankle injury. If Robinson would miss Week 17, it means the Jaguars would have to rely on second-year player Corey Grant, first-year player Bronson Hill, and newly signed Daryl Richardson, who has 169 carries in his career but only two since 2013.

Jags place RB T.J. Yeldon (ankle) on IR

Tuesday, December 27, 2016, 11:57am

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon will end his second NFL season in the same place that he ended his first one.

Yeldon has been placed on injured reserve as a result of an ankle injury. He spent the last three weeks of his rookie year on injured reserve with a knee issue.

Yeldon played in all 15 games this year, but his production was down across the board from his rookie year. Yeldon ran 130 times for 465 yards and one touchdown, which is lower than he managed as a rookie in all three metrics along with a drop from 4.1 yards per carry to 3.6 yards this season.

The Jags filled Yeldon’s roster spot by claiming running back Daryl Richardson off of waivers from the Steelers.

Related players: Chris Ivory

Fantasy Impact:

The arrival of Chris Ivory accounts for the drop in Yeldon’s workload, but it’s probably fair to say that Yeldon fell short of where the Jaguars expected the 2015 second-round pick to be in his second season with the team. Both backs should be back in 2017 and Jacksonville would welcome better results from each of them.
