Telvin Smith Fantasy Football News 2020

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.

Jaguars LB Telvin Smith (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Colts. He belongs in IDP lineups.

Jaguars LB Telvin Smith popped onto the injury report Thursday with a shoulder issue that limited his practice participation the past 2 days. Smith is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Jaguars OLB Telvin Smith has cleared the league concussion protocol, making him eligible to return for Sunday's game against the Texans. Smith should go right back into IDP lineups, assuming he's active.

Jaguars OLB Telvin Smith (concussion) is not expected to play against the Seahawks today. The team hasn't appeared to update his status since deeming the LB questionable Friday afternoon. That's odd, because teams generally rule players out when they don't clear the concussion protocol by Saturday. Smith practiced Wednesday and Thursday but then sat out Friday. Paul Posluszny becomes a high-upside IDP starter with Smith out.

Jaguars LB Telvin Smith put in a full practice Wednesday, signaling a likely return from the concussion that cost him last week's game against the Colts. He'll still need to complete the protocol but should be ready for IDP lineups in Week 14.

The Jaguars have ruled OLB Telvin Smith out for Sunday's game against the Colts because of a concussion. LB Paul Posluszny played a season-high 72.6% of the snaps last week, when Smith left early. Poz should be in for a full-time role against Indy and makes sense as an IDP fill-in for the high-upside matchup.

Jaguars LB Telvin Smith suffered a concussion in Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Smith initially passed a concussion test and returned to the field, but he left again shortly thereafter and was diagnosed. We'll see how long the injury keeps him out.

Jaguars OLB Telvin Smith will miss a 2nd straight game because of his injured shoulder. Hayes Pullard, who filled in well for Smith last week, is questionable this time around with a hamstring issue that limited him in practice all week. It'll be best to avoid this situation in your IDP league.

Jaguars OLB Telvin Smith (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints. Hayes Pullard is expected to start in his place but is nowhere near the IDP prospect that Smith has become.

Jaguars OLB Telvin Smith played through a separated AC joint in his right shoulder and a dislocated finger in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, according to the team website. We'll see whether he can continue playing through the shoulder injury in Week 16. IDP owners will keep all of their properly located fingers crossed, given Smith's terrific fantasy production all season.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny is inactive for today's game against the Bucs. That comes as no surprised after he suffered an ankle sprain last week. It was more surprising that he showed up questionable on the final injury report. Jaguars weak-side LB Telvin Smith makes for 1 of the position's strongest fantasy plays this week.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's loss at Indy. That will almost certainly knock him out for Week 5 and often proves to be a multiple-week injury. Unfortunately for the Jags, they also have 2 more games before a Week 8 bye. We'll see if the team tackle leader can make it back before then. Look for OLB Telvin Smith to absorb more tackles while Poz is out. That only makes him look better for an already terrific matchup with Tampa Bay in Week 5. Thurston Armbrister sits behind Poz at MLB on the depth chart.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle in Sunday's win over the Browns. J.T. Thomas opens as the likely replacement in the middle, but OLBs Geno Hayes and Telvin Smith carry more IDP intrigue. HC Gus Bradley allowed that Smith's role "might" grow when talking to reporters Monday. The rookie has mostly been a nickel player but could see more snaps as the regular weak-side LB. He's not a starting option in fantasy yet but is worth stashing in deep leagues.
