Jacksonville Jaguars Fantasy Football News 2020

Jaguars DE Josh Allen avoided ligament damage in the knee he injured Sunday against the Steelers. But HC Doug Marrone says Allen "will be out for quite a while," according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco. That makes the inconsistent producer fine to drop in redraft IDP leagues.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen left in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Steelers with a knee injury. Allen needed help off the field and into the locker room. We'll see about the severity of the injury.

Jaguars CB Sidney Jones (Achilles' tendon) is out for today's game against the Steelers. C.J. Henderson, Tre Herndon and D.J. Hayden look like the top 3 Jacksonville corners against Pittsburgh in a terrific matchup for the Steelers' entire offense.

Jaguars CB Sidney Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He put in limited workouts Wednesday and Thursday because of an Achilles' tendon injury. Jones then sat out Friday altogether. That certainly doesn't seem to bode well for his Sunday participation. We'll check his status on game day, though.

9:10pm EDT 10/23/20

The Jaguars have ruled OLB Myles Jack (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Dakota Allen will start in his place. Allen tallied 7 tackles (5 solo) and a QB hit at Houston in Week 5 the last time he filled in for Jack. Jacksonville has also ruled out S Jarrod Wilson. Second-year S Brandon Watson will get his 1st career start in Wilson's place.

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.

Jaguars LB Myles Jack left Sunday's loss to the Lions early after aggravating his sprained ankle. We'll see whether it was a significant setback for Jack or a matter of the team erring on the side of caution late in a lopsided loss. Jack did make it through 75% of the defensive snaps before exiting. We'll watch his participation in practice this week. If Jack misses further time, new acquisition Kamalei Correa looks like the replacement plan -- at least from a playing-time standpoint -- over Dakota Allen.

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 S Josh Jones got ejected about halfway through Sunday's loss to the Texans after a shot to the helmet of Houston WR Brandin Cooks. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that no suspension is expected to follow. Jones remained a starter with Jarrod Wilson back from IR and should remain in that role for a Week 6 clash with the Lions.

Jaguars CB C.J. Henderson (shoulder) and LB Myles Jack (ankle) are inactive for today's game against the Texans. Rookie CB Chris Claybrooks will start in Henderson's place. Dakota Allen will start in place of Jack. Both carry IDP upside, though there's also the uncertainty of less-proven players.

The Jaguars activated S Jarrod Wilson (hamstring) off IR on Saturday. Wilson missed the past 3 games and remained limited in practice this week. It's not clear whether he'll return to the starting lineup or continue to let Andrew Wingard play in his place for another game. Try to avoid the situation altogether, if you can.

The Jaguars have downgraded DE Josh Allen to out for Sunday's game against the Texans. He already looked unlikely to play through a knee injury that kept him out of practice all week. Allen's absence could mean more snaps for rookie K'Lavon Chaisson and DE Dawuane Smoot. Chaisson reached 50% snap share for the 2nd time in 4 games last week but hasn't looked like a player who belongs in IDP lineups yet. Smoot has yet to hit 50% in a game this season. Cassius Marsh could see the biggest boost at the position. His playing time has gone 19%, 62% and 32% through his 3 appearances.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen (knee), LB Myles Jack (ankle) and CB C.J. Henderson (shoulder) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. Jack is the only one worth waiting on for IDP lineups. Allen missed practice all week. The other 2 put in limited practices Thursday and Friday. We'll check the status of all 3 when the inactives come out Sunday morning.

Jaguars OLB Myles Jack left Sunday's game early with an ankle injury and did not return. HC Doug Marrone said Tuesday that he's "optimistic" about the starters lost to injury against the Bengals but that he'd know more when the practice week begins Wednesday. Dakota Allen came on and finished the game in Jack's spot. He'd likely start in Jack's spot if the latter can't go.

Jaguars CB C.J. Henderson left Sunday's loss to the Bengals with a shoulder injury. He played just 12 snaps before leaving for the rest of the game. Seventh-round rookie Chris Claybrooks stepped in to play 72% of the snaps. We'll see about Henderson's status heading into Week 5 against Houston.

Jaguars S Andrew Wingard left in the 1st half of Thursday night's game against the Dolphins with a core injury and was ruled out for the game. We'll see about Wingard's status heading into Week 4. He was already filling in for S Jarrod Wilson.

Jaguars DE Josh Allen missed practice Wednesday with a calf issue. He left Sunday's win over the Colts early with calf cramping. Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said he expects Allen to return to practice Thursday, according to Jim Wyatt of the Titans website, so it sounds like Allen should be ready to play against Tennessee on Sunday.
