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 WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) got "good news" on his MRI and "has a chance" to play against the Packers on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll monitor the rookie's practice participation this week, although he probably shouldn't be in your Week 10 fantasy plans coming off this injury.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault injured his hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Texans and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

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.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. It looks like he’ll be back in his usual role, but consider him just a WR4 against a tough Patriots secondary.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Patriots. Consider Brown a WR4 against a tough secondary.

Seahawks CB Shaq Griffin officially left Sunday night's loss to the Cardinals early with a concussion. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before returning from that. But 950 KJR in Seattle reports that Griffin is also dealing with a hamstring injury. It seems we should at least expect Griffin to miss next Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.

Jaguars RB Ryquell Armstead has been hospitalized twice for complications with COVID-19 and will miss the rest of the season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This shouldn't affect any fantasy teams, given that Armstead has yet to play this season. But it at least clears the way for Devine Ozigbo to follow James Robinson if the starter goes down.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He was sidelined on Wednesday, limited on Thursday and a full-go on Friday. So the knee isn’t a real concern heading into this weekend’s game against the Falcons. But Jones has done nothing so far this season to earn a spot in your fantasy lineup.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jets. He’ll be replaced by rookie WR Gabriel Davis, who’s posted 4-81 and 5-58 lines in 2 games Brown has missed all or most of this season. Davis is in play as a deep-league and DFS flier vs. a bad Jets secondary.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to play against the Falcons this weekend. We'll get another update on Jones tomorrow.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He's looking unlikely to play against the Jets this week, turning WR Gabriel Davis into an intriguing deep-league and DFS flier.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday. We haven't heard anything about this knee issue. Jones has been brutal this season, averaging just 29 yards per game. Even if he plays in Sunday's plus matchup vs. Atlanta, he can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He was noticeably hobbled in Monday night's loss to the Chiefs, finishing catch-less on 4 targets. We'll see if Brown suits up for this weekend's game vs. the Jets, but we can't count on him in fantasy lineups until we see that he's back to 100%.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said Monday that he thinks DE Josh Allen is "trending on being able to play this week," according to SI.com. Allen lost the past 2 games to a hip injury, but it sounds like he should return to face the Chargers on Sunday. L.A. has allowed the 2nd most DL points per game so far this season, offering a solid matchup for Jacksonville's top D-lineman. The scoring has been more tackle-driven than sack-friendly, though. So the fantasy floor looks better than the ceiling. We'll watch Allen's participation level through the practice week.

3:10pm EDT 10/19/20

Bills WR John Brown (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Chiefs. He was a full-go in Thursday and Friday's practices but limited on Saturday, so it's unclear how close to 100% he is. Consider Brown a risk/reward WR3 tonight.

11:10am EDT 10/18/20

Jaguars DE Josh Allen (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Lions. He seemed to be trending toward a return with limited practices Wednesday and Thursday after missing Week 5. But Allen sat out Friday’s practice. We’ll see about his status for a Week 7 meeting with the Chargers.

Bills WR John Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. He was a full-go Thursday and Friday but limited on Saturday. That makes Brown a shaky fantasy play with the late kickoff. Rookie WR Gabriel Davis will step in as Buffalo's #3 WR if Brown is out.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Allen missed last week's game with the injury. He put in limited practices the 1st 2 days of this week but then sat out Friday. That doesn't seem to point to Allen being a good IDP play this week. We'll update his status Sunday morning, but you should plan for an alternative in your fantasy lineup.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was sidelined on Wednesday but practiced on Thursday and Friday. The rookie should be ready for his usual role against the Lions this weekend.
