The Jaguars have no plans to rest starters against the Texans today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "It's full steam ahead," a Jaguars official told ESPN. "Everybody's ready and everybody's playing." The AFC South title comes down to next weekend's game vs. the Titans, but the Jaguars do still have about a 6% chance at a Wild Card spot, so today's game isn't meaningless. We're projecting Jaguars players for full playing time.

Jaguars TE Evan Engram racked up 113 yards on 7 catches in Thursday night's win over the Jets. His team-leading 8 targets constituted 25.8% of QB Trevor Lawrence's total attempts. Engram also accounted for 35% of the team's receptions and 49.3% of the receiving yards. No other Jaguar reached 30 yards on the night or exceeded 3 receptions. WR Christian Kirk caught 3 of 6 targets for 22 yards. WR Zay Jones managed just 1 reception for 14 yards on 4 targets. Jacksonville closes out the fantasy schedule (for most leagues) with a Week 17 visit to Houston. Although that matchup has favored rushing all season, it's not a scary spot for any members of the Jacksonville pass offense. For Engram's sake, the Texans matchup has also been much friendlier to TE scoring (7th best) than to WRs (28th).

The forecast for tonight’s Jaguars-Jets game calls for light rain early, potentially getting heavier throughout the night. The bigger concern is the wind. We’re looking at sustained 15-20 mph winds with gusts of 30+ mph. It's ugly weather that figures to impact the passing and kicking games — while also possibly pushing both teams to run more than they would in better conditions. We’ve updated our Jaguars and Jets projections for the forecast.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones racked up a monster 6-109-3 receiving line on 8 targets in Sunday's OT win against the Cowboys. It marked the 5th straight game of at least 7 targets for Jones and his 4th time with at least 6 catches in that span. It was just his 2nd 100-yard game of the year, though, and just his 3rd time north of 80 yards. The TDs also more than doubled Jones' season total. TE Evan Engram led the team with 8 receptions and tied WR Christian Kirk for the target lead (10). WR Marvin Jones claimed the team's other TD reception among 2 catches for 17 yards (on 6 targets).

Jaguars WR Zay Jones tallied 8 catches for 77 yards and a TD among 12 targets in Sunday's win over the Titans. It was his 3rd game among the past 4 with at least 10 targets but his 1st TD since Week 3. WR Christian Kirk endured a quieter outing, posting a 5-45 receiving line on 7 targets. Jacksonville gets tougher passing matchups the next 2 weeks in the Cowboys and Jets.

11:32am EST 12/11/22

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (chest) is active for today’s game vs. the Titans. He played through this issue last week and shouldn’t be limited today.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (chest) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Titans. He played through this issue last week and should be fine for this one. But check back around 11:30 am ET on Sunday to make sure Jones is active.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones caught just 2 of 7 targets for 16 yards in Sunday's blowout loss at Detroit. He committed multiple drops, coming off a game that set career highs in targets, receptions and receiving yards. He and the Jags face Tennessee in Week 14.

11:41am EST 12/4/22

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (chest) is active for today’s game vs. the Lions. He was limited in practice all week, but we never heard any concern about his status for this one.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (chest) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Lions. We’ve heard nothing to suggest that Jones is in danger of missing this one, but check back around 11:30 am ET on Sunday for Jacksonville’s inactives.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones set career highs with 14 targets, 11 catches and 145 yards in Sunday's win over the Ravens. It was just the 2nd 100-yard game ever for Jones, who added a 2-point conversion catch near the end of regulation for the game-winning points. WR Christian Kirk ranked 2nd on the team with 9 targets but caught just 4 for 46 yards. RB JaMycal Hasty and WR Jamal Agnew tied for 2nd on the team with 5 receptions apiece. Hasty, Agnew and WR Marvin Jones Jr. caught QB Trevor Lawrence's 3 TD passes. The next 2 weeks bring upside passing matchups with the Lions and Titans.

Jaguars WR Christian Kirk led the team in targets (9), receptions (8) and receiving yards (76) in Sunday's win over the Raiders. He also snagged the team's lone TD pass. It marked the 1st time since Week 4 that he led the team in targets by himself. WR Marvin Jones followed with 6 targets. He and Zay Jones tied with 5 receptions apiece, though each fell short of 50 yards. TE Evan Engram tallied just 1 catch for 8 yards among 2 targets. Jacksonville visits the Chiefs in Week 10.

Jaguars WRs Christian Kirk and Zay Jones tied for the team target lead with 10 apiece in Sunday's loss to the Giants. Kirk grabbed a team-high 7 catches for a team-high 96 yards. Jones caught 4 balls, tying TE Evan Engram and WR Marvin Jones Jr. for 2nd. No other Jaguar caught more than 1 pass in the game.

Jaguars WR Marvin Jones (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game vs. the Colts. He apparently hurt his hamstring in Friday's practice and might miss more time. His absence will elevate Jamal Agnew to the #3 WR role behind Christian Kirk and Zay Jones.

Jaguars WR Marvin Jones was added to Friday's injury report with a hamstring. He was limited in practice and is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Colts. Jones was a very fringy fantasy option to begin with, so you should avoid him at less than 100%. Jones' absence on Sunday would be a boost for WRs Christian Kirk and Zay Jones.
