2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Jacksonville Jaguars
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Jaguars made strides last season, being competitive in more games, but still lack some talent on both sides of the ball. The defense is getting better but remains a little susceptible to the pass. The offense is the big question mark for the Jaguars. The team still lacks elite talent at receiver and the offensive line is just alright. The running game should be better but a lack of overall talent offensively will hold this team back. The Jaguars seem poised for another season under .500.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Quarterback Blake Bortles had an uneven rookie season. He showed some promise but also turned the ball over a lot more than expected. He made some poor decisions and looked rattled in the pocket at times. But he was a rookie on a bad offensive team, so this shouldnâ??t be a surprise. You have to like his talent, though. Bortles seems to have that â??itâ?? factor and looks poised to take a big step forward this season. The Jags have improving talent at receiver and an elite tight end (Julius Thomas), giving Bortles some good potential for the coming year. Plus, an improved running game should open things up for Bortles. He is ready to take his game up a notch from his rookie year, becoming a fantasy relevant quarterback.
FANTASY DUD
The addition of running back T.J. Yeldon is a blow to the value of Denard Robinson for the coming year. Robinson seemed ready to take another step forward this season, showing good things when getting a chance to start last season. Robinson should move to more of a complimentary role this season, serving more as a change-of-pace or third-down back. Robinson wonâ??t get the touches of last season when in a starting role for the Jaguars. He still has some value in PPR formats but donâ??t expect a breakout season for Robinson.
