Shark Bites

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.

Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) and S Tashaun Gipson (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. Each guy missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before putting in a limited Friday workout. We'll check their status Sunday morning.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (quad) is out for Sunday’s game against the Colts. Keelan Cole will again serve as the #3 WR but isn’t a fantasy option.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette's appeal of his 1-game suspension has been denied. He's out for Sunday's game against the Colts. After Fournette was booted from last week's game, Carlos Hyde carried 4 times, while T.J. Yeldon tallied 1 carry and 3 targets. Expect similar usage this weekend, with Hyde leading in carries and Yeldon playing in passing situations.

The Jags have fired OC Nathaniel Hackett and benched QB Blake Bortles. Jacksonville sits 22nd in total yards per game; 28th in points per game. Hackett’s replacement is QB coach Scott Milanovich, whose background stems from the CFL and NFL Europe. Cody Kessler takes over at QB and figures to reduce the Jags’ turnover rate. He owns just 4 picks on 248 career attempts. Of course, it’ll be tough to trust any skill player not named Leonard Fournette down the stretch. Even then, Fournette will have to overcome the loss of top OL Andrew Norwell (ankle) to injured reserve.

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

Jaguars TE James O’Shaughnessy (hip) is active for today’s game against the Colts. He should serve as Jacksonville’s lead TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.

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 TE James O’Shaughnessy (hip) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts after a limited week of practice. If active, he should serve as Jacksonville’s lead TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is not listed on the final injury report and will play against the Colts this weekend. He’s yet to make it through a full game this season, so there’s obviously some risk here. But Jacksonville has played it safe with Fournette this time, and he was a full-go in practice all week. He’s worth getting into most fantasy lineups.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He's tentatively expected back for this weekend's game against the Colts, although we'd feel a lot better about getting him into fantasy lineups if he's a full-go on Thursday and/or Friday.

Update: Jacksonville changed Fournette's participation to "full." Barring a setback over the next couple of days, he'll be safe to get into Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) participated in individual drills on Monday for the 1st time since re-injuring his hamstring in Week 4, The Athletic's Daniel Popper reports. Fournette is on track to return for this weekend's game against the Colts if he can avoid a setback in practice this week. We'll continue to monitor his status.

The Jaguars have ruled CB A.J. Bouye (calf) out for Sunday's game against the Eagles. That leaves the secondary without 1 of its 2 outside corners and its top 2 slot corners. The whole situation just might mean more upside for Carson Wentz and his wideouts.

Jaguars TE James O’Shaughnessy (hip) is out for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. Jacksonville will again roll with TEs David Grinnage and Blake Bell. Neither is a fantasy option.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. He’s tentatively expected back after the Week 9 bye. RB Carlos Hyde will make his Jags debut this weekend and figures to share ball-carrying duties with T.J. Yeldon. Yeldon will continue to dominate pass-catching work, though, and is the better fantasy play.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone announced Monday that QB Blake Bortles will start this weekend's game against the Eagles in London. Bortles was yanked in the 3rd quarter of yesterday's game against the Texans after losing a pair of fumbles. That (surprisingly) was the 1st time he'd ever been benched in-game. He figures to be on a short leash again on Sunday and can't be trusted in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was benched in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Texans. He was 6-of-12 for 61 yards with 0 TDs and 2 lost fumbles in a little over 1 half of action. QB Cody Kessler is in for Jacksonville.

Jaguars DE Calais Campbell (ankle) is active for today's game against the Texans. Campbell managed limited practices Thursday and Friday and reportedly told NFL Network's James Palmer after warmups that he's "good to go." We'd go ahead and use him in IDP lineups in nearly all cases for a high-upside matchup.

11:10am EDT 10/21/18

Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. He didn’t have quite enough time to get settled in after the trade to Jacksonville Friday. T.J. Yeldon will serve as the Jags’ lead back, with Jamaal Charles as the #2.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and James Palmer both hear that Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde might play against the Texans today -- just 2 days after being traded to Jacksonville. Per Palmer, Hyde arrived in Jacksonville around midnight on Friday and participated in Saturday's walkthrough. If he's active, he'd have a "small package of plays." Hyde obviously shouldn't be in Week 7 fantasy lineups. And his presence would be just a small ding to RB T.J. Yeldon's outlook.
