Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

According to John Reid of the Florida Times-Union, Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette plans to be at 224 pounds when training camp opens, which is 11 pounds less than his playing weight last year when he ran for 1,040 yards and helped them to the playoffs.

″I feel like I play my best at that weight – 223, 224 – that’s what I played in college,″ Fournette said. ″Why not? I don’t want to be average. I want to be above average, be the greatest one to play this game. I feel lighter, quicker and I have a lot of my burst."

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say Fournette is hoping that playing lighter can help with endurance and burst. He averaged 3.9 yards per carry over the course of the season, but 3.5 yards per carry in the playoffs. Part of that was because of the attention defenses paid to him.

Jaguars say they will be more aggressive on offense

Jags OC Nathaniel Hackett promised a different approach this season because of what they saw from QB Blake Bortles last year.

“We’re in a great situation, because a very good line, and we have very good running backs, which will allow us to run the ball,” Hackett said. “Now it’s going to allow us to be a lot more aggressive, because you can trust that Blake is going to make right decision more consistently.”

Fantasy Impact:

The story said the team went back to the beginning with Bortles because all he knew how to do was throw deep to Allen Robinson, the story said. But last year Bortles began to check down to RBs and change plays. The team feels this year he can take another step thanks to what is around him in the offense.

The Dallas Cowboys are signing WR Allen Hurns to a two-year deal.

Fantasy Impact:

Hurns broke out in 2015, catching 64 passes for 1,031 and 10 touchdowns. However, he's dealt with injuries the past two seasons, appearing in only 21 games. He now joins a Cowboys WR corps that includes Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley, and the recently signed Deonte Thompson.

Jaguars release WR Allen Hurns

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released another WR named Allen—Allen Hurns. The Jaguars let Allen Robinson walk earlier this offseason, and Hurns has joined him out the door. Robinson and Hurns were the team's top two receivers in 2015, combining to catch 144 passes for 2,431 yards, and 24 touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact:

After a breakout 2015 campaign in which he caught 64 passes for 1,031 and 10 touchdowns, Hurns has caught a combined 74 passes for 961 yards and five touchdowns the last two seasons. Injuries have played a factor in his declining play, as he's only appeared in 21 of a possible 36 games in 2016 and 2017 combined.

The Jaguars will now feature a WR group that consists of Marqise Lee, Donte Moncrief, Dede Westbrook, and Keelan Cole.

Jaguars sign TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins

After adding Niles Paul earlier, the Jaguars have signed another tight in Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Fantasy Impact:

Last season turned out to be a comeback season for ASJ, who flashed the potential many saw in him when the Buccaneers used a second-round pick to draft him in 2014.

ASJ set career-highs in targets (74), catches (50), and yards (357) in only 13 games last season. Paul, Marcedes Lewis, and ASJ top the Jaguars' tight end depth chart.

WR Donte Moncrief to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars

After letting Allen Robinson walk and re-signing Marqise Lee, the Jacksonville Jaguars are bringing Donte Moncrief into the fold.

Fantasy Impact:

Following a somewhat breakout season in 2015, when he caught 64 passes for 733 yards and six touchdowns, Moncrief has been pretty quiet the last two seasons. He did score seven touchdowns in only nine games in 2016, but he caught only 26 passes last season without Andrew Luck. He will join a crowded WR depth chart in Jacksonville.

Jaguars re-signing WR Marqise Lee

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 3:14pm

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

After letting WR Allen Robinson test the free agent waters, where he promptly signed with the Chicago Bears, the Jaguars aren't letting WR Marqise Lee go. Adam Schefter reports Lee will remain in Jacksonville on a four-year deal worth $38 million, with $18 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact:

With Robinson injured for most of last season, Lee stepped up to become the Jaguars' No. 1 WR and he led the team in targets (96) and catches (56). He finished the season as the No. 41 scoring receiver in PPR leagues last year, and should be on your fantasy radars as a WR2/WR3 option.

TE Trey Burton intends to sign with the Chicago Bears

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 11:36am

Mike Garafolo - [Full Article]

After news broke last night that the Bears intend to sign WR Allen Robinson, it appears they are adding another offensive playmaker in the form of former Eagles TE Trey Burton. Ian Rapaport reports that it's a four-year deal worth $32 million.

Fantasy Impact:

While he played second fiddle to Zach Ertz at the tight end position in the Eagles' offense, Burton still managed to lead the position in touchdowns with five. He has shown that if given the chance he can produce, as evidenced by his five-catch, 71-yard, two-touchdown game in Week 14 last season.

He easily becomes the Bears' top tight end and should be on your fantasy radars come draft day.

WR Allen Robinson to sign with the Chicago Bears

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Adam Schefter is pulling a late-night shift in the NFL breaking news department. First, he broke the news that QB Case Keenum plans to sign with the Denver Broncos, and now he's reporting that WR Allen Robinson will become a Chicago Bear as soon as free agency opens.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bears clearly need a No. 1 WR, and Robinson fits the bill. He only played in one game last season, but he's not that far removed from a breakout career season in 2015, when he caught 80 passes for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Kendall Wright led the Bears last season with 59 catches for 614 yards. No Bears receiver caught more than one touchdown last season. A healthy Robinson should quickly become a favorite target of Mitch Trubisky.

Jaguars re-sign Blake Bortles to three-year extension

Sunday, February 25, 2018, 12:14pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Jacksonville Jaguars have re-signed quarterback Blake Bortles to a three-year contract extension through the 2020 season, the team announced Saturday.

The deal is for $54 million and could be worth up to $66.5 million with incentives, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal also includes $26.5 million in guaranteed money, according to the source.

"Blake's growth and development last season was a key to the success we had as a team," said Tom Coughlin, the Jaguars' executive vice president of football operations. "Blake has proven, with toughness and dependability, that he can be the leader this team needs going forward. Along with this contract come high expectations that he will continue to improve and help our team accomplish its ultimate goal."

Fantasy Impact:

Working backwards, Bortles has finished No. 13, No. 9 and No. 4 at his position. That's not a good trend, but he still has three straight seasons finishing in the top 13, and this contract is a vote of confidence from the organization. If Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee stay in Jacksonville, Bortles should have a deep and talented receiving corps to throw to.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) took limited practice reps all week. Fournette is good to go to face the Patriots, who have yielded 4.7 yards per carry on the ground. The Patriots have given up the fifth-fewest rushing attempts since they spend so much time with a lead. The Jaguars will need to stay patient with the run if they hope to pull off the upset in Foxboro.

Friday, January 19, 2018, 6:07pm

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 20. Burkhead didn’t play last week but looks like a good bet to play against the Jaguars. Dion Lewis is the best play in the New England backfield, but Burkhead was hot prior to his injury.

Friday, January 19, 2018, 6:07pm

Patriots QB Tom Brady (right hand, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 20. Apparently, he needed four stitches on his knuckle after his hand hit a teammate’s helmet. Brady is expected to play against the Jaguars, but the status of his hand is a question mark.

Friday, January 19, 2018, 6:07pm

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right wrist) took full practice reps all week. Bortles was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go.
