Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

A member of Jacksonville's practice squad tested positive for COVID on Friday night, the team announced. The Jaguars are still planning on playing vs. the Lions on Sunday, but the situation obviously bears monitoring over the next 24 hours.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but HC Doug Marrone said he “looked good.” We’ll get Chark’s official status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, he’ll be a risk/reward fantasy play at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. He's unlikely to play against the Lions this weekend. WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) returned to a limited practice today. We're expecting him to suit up vs. Detroit but will get another update on his status tomorrow.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ankle) won't practice on Wednesday. At this point, fantasy owners shouldn't be planning on having him in Week 6 lineups. Chark's absence would be an upgrade for WR Laviska Shenault but a downgrade for QB Gardner Minshew.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark suffered an ankle injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Texans. He's officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for updates.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (chest, back) isn’t listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He put in a full practice on Friday, so he should be ready for his usual role this weekend. Chark was off to a slow-ish start before missing Week 3, but he’s worth getting back into fantasy lineups for Sunday’s plus matchup vs. the Bengals.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (chest, back) was limited in Wednesday's practice. QB Gardner Minshew struggled without Chark in Thursday night's loss to the Dolphins. We'll see if Chark can make it back for this weekend's game vs. the Bengals.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (back, chest) has been downgraded to out for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins. His status for Week 4 and beyond is uncertain. Chark's absence tonight leaves Keelan Cole and Laviska Shenault as Jacksonville's top 2 WRs. It might also mean an extra target or 2 or TE Tyler Eifert.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (chest) was limited in practice this week and is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins. We've heard no concern over this -- but check back around 7 pm ET tomorrow to make sure Chark is active.

Update: Chark did not practice on Wednesday after being limited the previous 2 days. The downgrade has him looking much iffier for tomorrow night.

Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook is a healthy scratch for today's opener vs. the Colts. That leaves D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault and Chris Conley as Jacksonville's top 3 WRs. Chark is a strong fantasy play, while Westbrook's absence makes Shenault a more intriguing DFS tournament play.

The Jaguars are set to hire Jay Gruden as their new OC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Gruden is coming off a failed stint as Washington's HC but did help the Redskins to top-17 finishes in total yards in each of his first 4 seasons, including a 3rd-place finish in 2016. Prior to that, Gruden spent 3 years as Cincinnati's OC. Those teams ranked 20th, 22nd and 10th in total yards. The big question in Jacksonville this offseason is what will happen at QB between Nick Foles, Gardner Minshew and potentially a rookie or free-agent addition.

The Jaguars have fired OC John DeFilippo after just 1 season. The 2019 Jags ranked 20th in total yards, 19th in yards per play and 26th in points. The offense, of course, lost QB Nick Foles to a broken collarbone in Week 1 and rolled with 6th-round rookie QB Gardner Minshew most of the year. We'll see who HC Doug Marrone tabs as his new OC.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. He was limited in practice all week, so it’s unclear how close to 100% he’ll be today. Consider Chark a risk/reward WR3.

The Jaguars expect WR D.J. Chark (ankle) to return for today's game against the Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Chark is officially questionable after missing last week's game, but he put in limited practices all week. Atlanta presents a high-upside matchup, and the 7.5-point line points to Jacksonville likely playing from well behind.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons after a limited week of practice. HC Doug Marrone said Friday that he expects Chark to play. We'll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. Seemingly still at less than 100% but in a plus matchup, consider Chark a risk/reward WR3 for Week 16.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ankle) put in his 2nd straight limited practice on Thursday. It looks like he has a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Falcons. We'll get another update on Chark tomorrow.
