As expected, Jaguars RB James Robinson (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Bears. His absence leaves Jacksonville's backfield to Devine Ozigbo and Dare Ogunbowale. Neither is a bankable fantasy play.

Jaguars GM Trent Baalke said he's "looking to add to" the RB group this offseason. "We have to add some explosive to that room as well and we have to be able to take some of the carries off of James [Robinson]," Baalke added. "You can only ride a horse so long." This sounds more like Jacksonville is looking to add a complement to Robinson, rather than a true threat to his job as lead back. Robinson is coming off an impressive rookie season that saw him average 76.4 rushing yards and 24.6 receiving yards per game. But the fact that he was an undrafted free agent last year and is now playing for a new regime adds some risk to his role heading into 2021. We'll see exactly who the Jaguars add to the backfield over the next 2 months.

The Jaguars have named Darrell Bevell their new OC. Multiple teams were interested in hiring the 51-year-old, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, but Bevell opted to join HC Urban Meyer in Jacksonville. Bevell has 14 seasons of experience as an NFL OC. He spent the past 2 years in Detroit, where the Lions ranked near the middle of the pack in total yards and points. Bevell's units were better during his Seattle tenure from 2011 to 2017, with 5 of those 7 squads finishing top 11 in points. His offenses have generally leaned toward the run, with 10 of the 14 ranking among the top half of the league in rush attempts. Only 4 of them have finished top-16 in pass attempts.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (ankle) won't play in Sunday's finale vs. the Colts, HC Doug Marrone said Wednesday. Robinson finishes his impressive rookie campaign with 1,414 yards and 10 TDs, ranking 6th among RBs in PPR points per game. Dare Ogunbowale figures to close out the season as Jacksonville's lead back after handling 14 carries and 5 targets last week.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (ankle) won't play against the Bears tomorrow, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie's absence leaves Jacksonville with RBs Dare Ogunbowale and Devine Ozgibo, who have combined for 15 touches this season. Try to avoid this backfield in Week 16 fantasy lineups.

Jaguars RB James Robinson (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bears. HC Doug Marrone said Wednesday that Robinson was on track to play, but it's unclear if that's still the case after the rookie missed practice all week. It's worth noting again that the experts at ProFootballDoc.com believe Robinson suffered a high-ankle sprain last week. Fantasy owners should certainly have an alternative lined up for Week 16 lineups. Robinson's absence would leave Jacksonville's backfield to Dare Ogunbowale and Devine Ozigbo. Neither would be a bankable fantasy play.
