Outlook

The Jaguars made some nice moves this offseason and seem to be headed in the right direction. But they are a young team and still are missing some pieces on both sides of the ball. This team should struggle once again, especially the offense. The Jaguars need Blake Bortles to emerge as that franchise quarterback to give the offense an identity. Until that happens, expect plenty of struggles from the Jaguars. Jacksonville should be a few games better than last season, though. Things are getting better for this team.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Cecil Shorts was on his way to a 1,000-yard season last year before missing the last three games of the season because of injury. We think he can take that next step this season. He is the No. 1 receiver in this offense, an offense that should be a little more consistent this season. Shorts continues to improve every season and should make another jump this season. He is likely to get the most targets on the team.
FANTASY DUD
Quarterback Chad Henne is expected to open the season as the starter but he is just keeping the seat warm for Blake Bortles. Henne might start much of the year but Bortles will get a shot at some point, especially if the Jaguars struggle, which is likely. Henne is always capable of the big game but he'll be inconsistent in a starting role. He always has played that way, so don't expect a change this season. Bortles is the future at the position for the Jaguars.

Team Notes

Sep 29, 06:13 PM Jacksonville Jaguars CB Chris Prosinski and Washington Redskins LB Gabe Miller and DT Robert Thomas cleared waivers and became free agents Monday, Sept. 29.
Sep 29, 05:03 PM The Jacksonville Jaguars released SS Winston Guy Monday, Sept. 29.
Sep 29, 04:53 PM Jacksonville Jaguars CB Dwayne Gratz (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol after suffering a concussion in Week 4.
Sep 29, 03:13 PM Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is not expected to play Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Sep 29, 02:23 PM Jacksonville Jaguars WR Ace Sanders will return this week after serving a four-game suspension. Sanders' first practice will be Wednesday, Oct. 1. He is expected to play Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, though that has not been made official.
Sep 29, 02:23 PM Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was ready to be the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Bortles was rusty in his first NFL start but provided signs of life in a previously dormant Jaguars' offense.

Fantasy Impact: Bortles is the real deal for the Jaguars. He has a bright future and could be a solid No. 2 before this season is over, worthy of getting some spot starts along the way.
Sep 29, 09:52 AM Jacksonville Jaguars RBs Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson appeared to play in a rotation Sunday, Sept. 28. Gerhart rushed 10 times for 32 yards and Robinson had nine carries for 25 yards.

Fantasy Impact: This could be a trend going forward with Gerhart not doing a whole lot with his chances.
Sep 29, 09:33 AM Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) aggravated his left hamstring injury Sunday, Sept. 28. He'll undergo testing Monday, Sept. 29, to determine the severity of the injury.

Fantasy Impact: Another setback for Shorts. He could miss more game time.
Sep 28, 06:32 PM Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) left the Week 4 game against the San Diego Padres due to a hamstring injury and he will not return.
Sep 28, 02:52 PM The Jacksonville Jaguars have declared TE Clay Harbor, CB Jeremy Harris, RB Storm Johnson, WR Tavarres King, WR Marqise Lee, OT Austin Pasztor, OG Tyler Shatley inactive for Week 4.
Sep 28, 02:52 PM Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) is active for the team's Week 4 game.
Sep 28, 02:52 PM Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (ankle) is active for the team's Week 4 game.
Sep 27, 12:42 AM Jacksonville Jaguars TE Clay Harbor (calf) returned to practice on a full-time basis this week, and he is expected to make his regular season debut in Week 4 against the San Diego Chargers. He suffered a calf injury July 28, and has been sidelined since.
Sep 27, 12:42 AM Jacksonville Jaguars TE Nic Jacobs might get the start in Week 4 against the San Diego Chargers if TEs Marcedes Lewis (ankle) and Mickey Shuler (illness) cannot go. 'When I signed I expected to be on the active roster and I expected to be playing on game day, but I didn't expect to be possibly starting,' Jacobs said. Just four days ago he was enjoying a day off as a practice squad player with the New Orleans Saints.
Sep 26, 05:42 PM The Jacksonville Jaguars waived FS Chris Prosinski (elbow) from the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Sept. 26, after the two sides reached an injury settlement.
Sep 26, 04:12 PM Jacksonville Jaguars TE Mickey Shuler (illness) has been ruled out for Week 4, while CB Alan Ball (abdomen), TE Clay Harbor (calf), DT Roy Miller (ankle), FB Will Ta'ufo'ou (ankle), OT Austin Pasztor (hand) and LB Paul Posluszny (ankle) are listed as probable. Shuler did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 26, while the other players fully participated in practice.
