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.
