Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee, hamstring) won't play vs. the Panthers today, according to CBS' Aditi Kinkhabwala. That'll leave WRs Parker Washington, Jamal Agnew, and Tim Jones behind top dog Calvin Ridley. We're expecting a run-heavy game plan from Jacksonville today with QB C.J. Beathard at the helm.

The Jaguars have ruled QB Trevor Lawrence out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. It's not a shock, given that Lawrence's right shoulder injury has kept him out of practice all week. But it will be the first game Lawrence has missed in his three NFL seasons. C.J. Beathard will start against a Panthers defense that's been the fourth-worst matchup for QBs and WRs and second-worst for TE scoring, according to our adjusted fantasy points allowed. Carolina has been a positive matchup for RBs, though. Lawrence's absence can't hurt the opportunity count for Travis Etienne. Check our updated rankings to see where he and other Jaguars candidates land.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence (shoulder) missed practice again on Thursday. HC Doug Pederson was non-committal on Lawrence's availability for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. “If Trevor plays, we’re all-in on that. If C.J. (Beathard) plays, we’re all in on that," Pederson said. "It’s a tough decision.” We'll see what Lawrence does on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence said he won't do much at Wednesday's practice with his right shoulder "still sore but feeling better," according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Lawrence reportedly said he can't yet say whether he'll be ready to face the Panthers on Sunday. We'll keep track of the QB's progress throughout the week.

Update: Lawrence officially did not practice on Wednesday.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence has been diagnosed with a sprained right shoulder, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "It’s not believed to be a major injury to his throwing shoulder, but it’s unclear how this affects his availability this week," Rapoport adds. Lawrence has yet to miss an NFL start through three years, including playing the week after a high-ankle sprain and a concussion this season. We'll track his status throughout this week, leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Panthers

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence injured his right shoulder in the third quarter of Sunday's loss to the Bucs and did not return. "When I landed, I knew something, something was off," Lawrence said afterward. HC Doug Pederson said that Lawrence will have the shoulder evaluated on Monday. We should learn more then. QB C.J. Beathard went 11 of 15 for 94 yards and a score in relief of Lawrence today and will start vs. the Panthers next week if Lawrence is out.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence has cleared concussion protocol and will travel with the team to Tampa Bay, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport doesn't say whether Lawrence will start Sunday's game vs. the Bucs -- but we're not sure why he wouldn't, barring a setback. We'll look for further updates on Lawrence's status, but we're now projecting him in for Week 16. It's a significant boost for WR Calvin Ridley and TE Evan Engram.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence (ankle, concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bucs. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous two days. HC Doug Pederson on Friday called Lawrence’s status for this one a “coin flip.” We should get another update on his progress on Saturday when the team travels to Tampa Bay. QB C.J. Beathard will get the start if Lawrence isn’t cleared.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence (ankle, concussion) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He's now a major long shot to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Bucs. Look for QB C.J. Beathard to get the start in that one -- an obvious downgrade for Jacksonville's offense.

Jaguars HC Doug Pederson said Wednesday that QB Trevor Lawrence remains in the concussion protocol but is "progressing well." It's still more likely than not that Lawrence misses Sunday's game vs. Bucs, but we'll continue to track his status over the next few days.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence entered the concussion protocol after Sunday night's loss to the Ravens. HC Doug Pederson said Lawrence sustained the injury on one of his scrambles during the team's final drive. Lawrence obviously faces high risk of missing next Sunday's matchup with the Buccaneers, though a number of players have recently returned after less than a week in the protocol. (Whether that should be the case ... we'll leave to the neurologists.) If Lawrence can't go, C.J. Beathard would fill in for what should be an upside passing matchup. That would downgrade the key Jacksonville pass-catchers but not doom their fantasy outlooks. We'll watch the situation throughout the week.

The Jaguars are "planning" for QB Trevor Lawrence to start today's game vs. the Browns, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Lawrence's ankle will be evaluated in pregame warmups before a final decision is made. He's just six days removed from a high-ankle sprain but got in two limited practices to close the week and is "feeling better than expected," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's still tough to imagine that Lawrence will have much mobility inside or out of the pocket. Throw in the matchup against Cleveland's sixth-ranked QB defense, and Lawrence is not a recommended starter in 1-QB fantasy leagues. His availability is good news for Jacksonville's skill-position players, though.

Jaguars HC Doug Pederson said Friday morning that QB Trevor Lawrence (ankle) will be listed as questionable and "probably" be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Browns. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Lawrence looked good throwing on Thursday and that "no one is counting him out" for this weekend's game. We'll continue to keep you updated on the situation. A gimpy Lawrence vs. a tough Cleveland defense in a game with potentially bad weather wouldn't be a recommended QB1 play. But his presence would be good news for Jacksonville's skill-position players.

Update: Lawrence was limited again in Friday's practice and is officially listed as questionable.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls it an "uphill battle" for Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence (ankle) to play vs. the Browns this weekend. "I'm not saying he's not gonna play. I'm just saying he has to get a lot better very quickly in a short week to actually be out on the field" on Sunday, Rapoport adds. Fantasy owners should certainly be working under the assumption that it'll be C.J. Beathard at QB for Jacksonville this weekend. We'll keep you updated on Lawrence's status.

Jaguars HC Doug Pederson said Tuesday that QB Trevor Lawrence has a high-ankle sprain. Pederson, though, did not rule Lawrence out for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. Skill-position players usually miss multiple weeks with high-ankle sprains, but it's possible that Lawrence is back sooner -- with limited mobility, of course. Fantasy owners should still work under the assumption for now that it'll be QB C.J. Beathard starting for Jacksonville on Sunday, but we'll keep a close eye on Lawrence's status.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence has a sprained right ankle and will undergo additional testing on Tuesday, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Lawrence was in a walking boot after the loss to the Bengals but was able to stand at his locker, per NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe. We should get an update on Lawrence's injury and timeline for return later today. QB C.J. Beathard played pretty well in relief of Lawrence on Monday, completing nine of 10 passes for 63 yards. Still, Lawrence's absence would be a significant downgrade for all of Jacksonville's skill-position players.

Jaguars TE Evan Engram finally found the end zone in Week 13, finishing Monday night’s game vs. the Bengals with a team-high 9 catches on as many targets for 82 receiving yards. His 23.2 PPR points in the contest rank second among all TEs in Week 13 and stand as Engram’s highest mark of the season. As disappointing as it was to see QB Trevor Lawrence leave with a late ankle injury, fantasy managers should keep in mind that a healthy portion of Engram’s production (4 catches and 31 yards) came on Jacksonville’s final two drives with backup C.J. Beathard under center. Engram will likely remain among our top 12 weekly TEs even if Lawrence misses time.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence injured his right leg in the fourth quarter of Monday night's game vs. the Bengals. He rolled his ankle and also had his knee bent awkwardly. We'll see how the Jaguars announce the injury. Lawrence needed help getting back to the locker room. QB C.J. Beathard is Jacksonville's backup.

Update: Lawrence is officially questionable to return with an ankle injury.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence "uncertain" for Thursday night's game vs. the Saints with his knee sprain. Lawrence's injury “is not a significant thing," a source tells Schefter. But the short turnaround comes at a bad time. We'll keep you updated on Lawrence's status over the next few days. QB C.J. Beathard is Jacksonville's backup.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence injured his left knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Colts. It didn't look serious, but Lawrence has a quick turnaround for Thursday night's game vs. the Saints. We'll keep you updated on his status. QB C.J. Beathard is Jacksonville's backup.
