Jacksonville Jaguars Fantasy Football News 2019

The Jaguars have ruled LBs Najee Goode (toe) and Quincy Williams (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Jaguars OLB Najee Goode left in the 1st half of Sunday's win over the Bengals with turf toe and did not return. He had started his 2nd straight game since replacing rookie Quincy Williams. Jacksonville was using S Jarrod Wilson at nickel LB at 1 point in the 2nd half Sunday, so we can't just assume Williams will reclaim his previous role if Goode misses further time.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (back) is inactive for today's game against the Saints. It'll be his 3rd straight missed game since the Thursday night win over the Titans that followed Ramsey's trade request. Ramsey's absence can only help a matchup that was already positive for Teddy Bridgewater and Saints receivers.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints. He put in limited practices all week. Team owner Shad Khan also reportedly said after a "heart-to-heart" with Ramsey this week that he believed the star corner would play. We'll see.

The Jaguars have ruled CB Jalen Ramsey out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Ramsey will miss his 2nd straight contest with a back injury that he says has been an issue throughout his career. "Jalen's been working extremely hard to get back with this low-back issue and it hasn't been getting any better," HC Doug Marrone said Friday, according to ESPN's Mike DiRocco. We'll see where this goes.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey is inactive for today's game against the Broncos. He returned to the team following the birth of his 2nd daughter, but a back issue will keep Ramsey out of the game. That's good news for Denver's wideouts, if you're starting either of the top 2 this week.

Jaguars MLB Myles Jack sustained a concussion in Thursday night's win over the Titans. The longer layoff before a Week 4 trip to Denver should help his chances of completing the league protocol in time.

The Jaguars have ruled CB A.J. Bouye out for Sunday's game against the Texans. His absence makes the matchup much friendlier for Houston WR Will Fuller.

The Jaguars have ruled DE Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Texans. CB A.J. Bouye (hip) is questionable after limited workouts Thursday and Friday. If he's inactive Sunday, the matchup gets better for Houston WR Will Fuller.

Jaguars MLB Myles Jack was ejected against the Chiefs for hitting an opponent in the face. We'll see whether the infraction draws further league discipline.

Jaguars DT Marcell Dareus (elbow) is out for today's game against the Chiefs. He put in limited practices all week, so we'd guess he'll be back for Week 2.

Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue ended his 11-day training camp holdout Sunday and reported to the team, despite not getting a new contract. ESPN reports that Ngakoue passed the conditioning test in the morning and assumed his usual starting spot in full-team drills. He also sits with the starters in the initial depth chart on the team website. HC Doug Marrone deemed Ngakoue "ready to go and in great shape." It looks like we can proceed as normal in IDP leagues, where Ngakoue supplies double-digit sack upside but a low tackle floor.

Did Jaguars top pick Josh Allen slip in your dynasty league's rookie draft amid concern that he'd play LB? Well, drop that concern. "Josh Allen was drafted to be a defensive end," DC Todd Wash told the team website Thursday. "He did a real nice job of dropping [into coverage] in college. I can't honestly say -- being a D-line [coach] that I get too excited about a 15-sack guy dropping into coverage. Hopefully, you won't see too damned much of that." Allen finished his Kentucky career with 17 sacks and 21.5 total tackles for loss last season. He has a shot to prove immediately relevant in IDP leagues.

Jaguars OLB Telvin Smith announced via Instagram on Thursday that he'll be taking 2019 off from football to "get my world in order." After the announcement, the Jaguars released a statement saying they wouldn't have a comment until after they had "a conversation with Telvin to understand the situation and the circumstances." That indicates Smith hadn't even been in contact with the franchise about whatever's going on in his life. We'll see where this goes. Bet on open competition for the weak-side job in Jacksonville this year. Smith's absence raises the tackle ceiling for MLB Myles Jack.

The Jaguars spent the 7th pick of the NFL Draft on DE Josh Allen. The former Kentucky star exploded for 17 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss in his senior season, after tallying 14 sacks and 19 tackles for loss over his previous 2 seasons. Allen should work into the edge rotation right away. Jacksonville has Yannick Ngakoue and Calais Campbell starting at DE currently, but Campbell often moves inside for passing situations. Most importantly for IDP owners, going to Jacksonville's 4-3 base scheme should start Allen with a DE designation. That helps his value for dynasty rookie drafts.

Jaguars CB A.J. Bouye (toe) is out for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Jaguars S Tashaun Gipson (ankle) and CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) are active for today’s game against the Colts. Neither is a strong IDP option, but they’re available if you want them.
