Patriots sign TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins

ESPN - [Full Article]

In their first personnel move at tight end since Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement in late March, the New England Patriots have agreed to a one-year deal with Austin Seferian-Jenkins, a source tells ESPN's Field Yates.

Fantasy Impact:

With the retirement of Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots had a big hole to fill at tight end and Seferian-Jenkins was probably the best available option. Still just 26 years old, Seferian-Jenkins is a great athlete but has never been able to capitalize on his considerable potential. He caught 21 passes for 338 yards and four touchdowns in seven games back in 2015, but has never cracked 400 yards receiving or caught more than four touchdowns in five seasons. The Patriots represent his best opportunity to date, and if he gets the requisite playing time, he could turn into a streaming/TE2 option.

Marrone: Jaguars WR Marqise Lee expected back 'late in the preseason'

Doug Marrone said he expects Marqise Lee to be back “late in the preseason.”

Fantasy Impact:

It's not even April and it looks like Lee is already expected most of the offseason.

Steelers sign WR Donte Moncrief to a two-year deal

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Former Jaguars’ WR Donte Moncrief reached agreement on a two-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

Moncrief will help to shore up the depth behind JuJu Smith-Schuster and James Washington.

Jaguars to sign QB Nick Foles to a four-year deal

Monday, March 11, 2019, 5:18pm

Albert Breer - [Full Article]

New Jaguars QB Nick Foles gets a four-year, $88 million deal, with upside to $102 million, source said. In the first 2 years, Foles pulls down $46.625 million. Really solid deal, and his own team to run.

Fantasy Impact:

In his last 12 full games for the Eagles, Foles averaged 20.3 PPG, throwing for an average of 271 yards, 1.75 touchdowns and 0.83 interceptions per game. The Jaguars lack the weapons in the passing game that the Eagles have, though that could still change this offseason. He'll likely be ranked as a low-end QB2 in August.

Chiefs sign RB Carlos Hyde

Ian Rapoport - [Full Article]

Former Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is signing with the Chiefs today, source said, agreeing to a 1-year deal worth just under $3M. Solid depth and experience before the madness begins.

Fantasy Impact:

Hyde has averaged 3.56 since the start of the 2017 season, so it's unlikely that the Chiefs are looking to give him lead back touches after the emergence of Damien Williams late last year. Hyde isn't much of a pass-catcher--he only has one season with more than 30 catches in his career. If the Chiefs don't use an early-round draft pick on a running back then Williams should be in line for 15+ touches per game.

Jaguars hire John DeFilippo to run the offense

Wednesday, January 16, 2019, 4:48pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Ex-Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator John DeFilippo is expected to become the Jacksonville Jaguars' new OC, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday, per sources informed of the situation. The team later confirmed the acquisition.

It's a vital hire for Jags coach Doug Marrone, who needed to inject some creativity into his ground-and-pound offense.

Fantasy Impact:

DeFilippo was replaced as the OC of the Vikings 13 games into the season because he wasn't calling enough run plays. As the Browns OC in 2015, his offense was 11th in pass attempts and 27th in rush attempts. The Vikings were 6th and 27th, respectively. This hire doesn't jibe with Tom Coughlin's conservative run-oriented mindset.

Jaguars: RB Leonard Fournette's remaining guarantees now voided

Monday, December 31, 2018, 9:18am

News4Jax - [Full Article]

A person familiar with the situation says the Jacksonville Jaguars have notified running back Leonard Fournette that his suspension late last month voided the remaining guarantees in his four-year rookie contract.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Sunday night. The person said the Jaguars notified Fournette of the action weeks ago. Fournette could challenge the decision.

Fantasy Impact:

Fournette's future with the franchise has become increasingly uncertain, the story said, and his standing with the team reached a new level of unrest Sunday in the season finale at Houston. Fournette and fellow running back T.J. Yeldon spent most of the game on the bench, disengaged from teammates. Top executive Tom Coughlin ripped both players for being "disrespectful" and "selfish," adding that their behavior was "unbecoming of a professional football player."

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette officially doubtful for Week 17

Friday, December 28, 2018, 8:38pm

Jaguars official injury report

Leonard Fournette (ankle) has been listed as doubtful for Week 17.

Fantasy Impact:

There is no reason for the Jags to push Fournette in what has been a disaster of a season for both. Look for T.J. Yeldon to get the start with Carlos Hyde questionable as a late-week addition to the injury report.

Friday, December 28, 2018, 6:29pm

Jaguars K Josh Lambo (right groin, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 17.

Friday, December 28, 2018, 6:29pm

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (quadricep) took full practice reps all week.

Friday, December 28, 2018, 6:29pm

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle, foot, doubtful) missed practice again Friday and is doubtful for Week 17. Carlos Hyde (knee, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 17. T.J. Yeldon and David Williams could split the work with Fournette likely out and Hyde iffy.

Friday, December 28, 2018, 6:29pm

Jaguars QB Cody Kessler (right shoulder) took limited practice reps all week.

Friday, December 21, 2018, 6:10pm

Jaguars K Josh Lambo (right groin, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 16. Kai Forbath will kick again for the Jaguars.

Friday, December 21, 2018, 6:10pm

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (quadricep, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 16.

Friday, December 21, 2018, 6:10pm

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) took full practice reps all week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s good to go. Fournette will be fine to face the Dolphins but given his limited Week 15 workload, he’s no longer a no-brainer fantasy RB1.
