Jalen Ramsey Fantasy Football News 2017

8:09am EDT 9/24/17

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (ankle) is active for today's game against the Ravens. He carried a "questionable" tag for the 3rd straight week but has been active each time.

The Jaguars have deemed CB Jalen Ramsey (ankle) questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He has played through "questionable" tags each of the 1st 2 weeks and did put in limited practices Wednesday and Friday (sat out Thursday). We're betting Ramsey will play, but we'll confirm his status Sunday before the 9:30 a.m. ET kickoff.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey is active for today's game against the Titans. He entered the weekend questionable because of an ankle injury. Ramsey's a marginal IDP option but hurts the fantasy outlook for Titans outside WRs.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey said he had surgery Thursday to repair a core muscle injury that he suffered in OTAs. The Florida Times-Union reports that he could be out for up to 6 weeks. He's reportedly expected to be ready for training camp, though the time line likely means he'll be limited in his early participation. Ramsey enjoyed a strong rookie campaign that included some big IDP numbers late in the year. As long as he's fully healthy before the start of the season, he'll present fantasy upside for deeper IDP leagues and be a key component for a likely ascending Jacksonville team D.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey had successful surgery Tuesday morning on the torn meniscus in his right knee, according to the Florida Times-Union. Doctors said Jacksonville's top pick might be ready for the start of training camp. “That’s great news; that’s outstanding,” HC Gus Bradley said. “That’s what we had hoped for. We knew all of the scenarios. I’m excited for him.” Ramsey did have microfracture surgery on the same knee back in high school, but it held up through college. We'll see if he's ready for the start of camp and how the knee fares through the summer. Ramsey's much more of a factor for the team D than for IDP lineups after intercepting just 3 passes across 3 seasons at Florida State (including 0 last year).

The Jaguars announced Thursday that #1 pick CB Jalen Ramsey sustained a "small" tear in his right meniscus. We'll see what the team says about treatment and timetable for Ramsey's recovery. This makes 2 straight offseasons, though, of their top pick quickly suffering a knee injury. Last year it was DE Dante Fowler suffering an ACL tear. Even healthy, Ramsey's not necessarily an exciting IDP option because of his position.

The Jaguars nabbed DB Jalen Ramsey with the 5th pick in the NFL Draft. We'll see if they view him as a corner, a safety or some combo along the lines of Arizona's Tyrann Mathieu. Ramsey will be an OK pick from Round 3 on in dynasty fantasy football leagues with IDPs.
