Jaguars HC Doug Pederson announced Tuesday that QB Trevor Lawrence and RB Travis Etienne will not play in Thursday night's Hall of Fame game, the preseason opener. This is not a surprise. Starters rarely make more than a cameo in the "game." We'll see how much preseason action Lawrence and Etienne get beyond that. In the meantime, get fired up for Thursday night's Jake Luton Show. (QB C.J. Beathard also won't play.)

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone announced Monday at his press conference that he'll start QB Gardner Minshew against the Ravens in Week 15. Minshew relieved Mike Glennon in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Titans but posted only pedestrian numbers. He completed 18 of 31 passes (58%) for 178 yards (5.7 per attempt), 1 TD and 0 INTs. Baltimore actually rates as only a slightly tougher-than-average scoring matchup for fantasy QBs on the season -- both by raw fantasy points allowed and our Strength-of-Schedule formula -- but we're certainly not chasing Minshew for Week 15 fantasy lineups. The Ravens will bring a tougher defense than the Titans did last week, especially in the 2nd half of a blowout Tennessee win.

Jaguars QB Mike Glennon will start against the Browns this weekend, HC Doug Marrone announced on Wednesday. QB Gardner Minshew evidently isn't ready to return from his thumb injury, and the Jags have seen enough of QB Jake Luton. Glennon at least has 801 NFL pass attempts under his belt, completing 61% and averaging 6.4 yards per attempt. He's not a Week 12 fantasy option but should be an upgrade over Luton.

The forecast for today's Jaguars-Packers game calls for sustained winds of 25 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. Temperatures will be in the mid-30s with a chance of snow showers. Those are obviously tough conditions for the passing and kicking games. We've updated our Jaguars and Packers projections.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said Monday that QB Jake Luton will "likely" start against the Packers this weekend. QB Gardner Minshew is expected to remain sidelined with his thumb injury. Luton flashed in his debut yesterday, notably on a 73-yard TD strike to WR D.J. Chark. But he graded out just 21st among QBs on the week, according to Pro Football Focus. Luton remains just a lower-end QB2 for Week 10.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) is out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. 6th-round rookie QB Jake Luton is expected to get the start but is well off the fantasy radar.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone confirmed on Monday that QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) is out for Sunday's game against the Texans. Marrone also said that QB Jake Luton will take most of the starter reps in practice this week. That obviously makes him the favorite to start over QB Mike Glennon. Luton is a 6th-round rookie out Oregon State who posted a mediocre 62% completion rate and 7.6 yards per attempt in his lone full season as starter last year. Luton did at least toss 28 TDs vs. 3 INTs. He doesn't bring any rushing upside, though, and won't be a Week 9 fantasy option.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) is not expected to play against the Texans next Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Veteran Mike Glennon and rookie Jake Luton will reportedly compete for the Week 9 starting job in practice. Neither guy will be a bankable fantasy play, despite the plus matchup. It's unclear if Jacksonville will go back to Minshew once he's healthy.

X-rays this week revealed that Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew has multiple fractures and a strained ligament in his right (throwing) thumb, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Minshew has reportedly been experiencing discomfort in that thumb since the Texans game back in Week 5. That at least partially explains his uneven play over the last 3 games. Minshew has a Week 8 bye, but it's unclear if he'll be able to play come Week 9. If not, Jacksonville would turn to either veteran Mike Glennon or 6th-round rookie Jake Luton.
