Jack OUT vs. Buccaneers | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Jaguars MLB Myles Jack (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Buccaneers. Donald Payne will start in his place, according to the team. It's tough to know whether Payne will take over all of Jack's snaps, and Jack has spent most of this year as a disappointing IDP performer. This is not the time of year for most of us to strongly consider Payne for fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Jaguars will place LB Myles Jack on IR today with the knee injury that cost him Week 13. That should lock in Donald Payne as the MLB starter the rest of the way. Payne racked up 13 tackles against the Buccaneers last week and looks like a high-ceiling IDP option for Week 14 against the Chargers.

Jaguars LB Myles Jack (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited Friday workout. Jack has increased his tackle totals lately but spent most of the season as a low-impact IDP. Jacksonville has already ruled out S Ronnie Harrison (concussion).

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.

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.

According to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, rookie Myles Jack "will eventually be the Jaguars’ every-down middle linebacker" and "could be replacing [MLB Paul] Posluszny in passing situations" as soon as this season. That's the 1st time we've seen the specific plan for Jack, who's capable of playing any LB spot. Poz's presence figures to limit Jack's IDP upside for 2016, but the veteran could be a cut candidate in 2017. That will mark the final year of his contract, and Jacksonville could dump him with minimal salary-cap impact. We'll watch Jack's progression this summer to see how much he might cut into Posluszny's role for the coming season. We'll be adjusting our Poz outlook down for fantasy football drafting this summer, though.
