Shark Bites

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence looks better now than he did a year ago at this time, according to Sports Illustrated's John Shipley. Lawrence "looks more decisive and sure of himself when it comes to delivering the ball, especially in tight windows," Shipley observed. Lawrence is coming off a disappointing rookie season. But we're expecting a big year-2 leap under a new coaching staff and with an improved group of pass-catchers. He's a value in early best-ball drafts, going in Round 10 at FFPC and Round 13 at Underdog.

Recent Shark Bites

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence says left-shoulder surgery last February kept him from getting into optimal shape in his rookie season. "I didn't really feel like I could get my body in shape the way I wanted," he said at a Monday press conference. "I was in shape, but as far as my arm, I would've liked to be a little sharper. I feel like my arm got a lot stronger this offseason." That's good to hear from a 2nd-year QB whose upside we already liked. Jacksonville's upgrades to the coaching staff and surrounding talent make Lawrence an intriguing pick anywhere in QB2 territory of fantasy football drafts.

Jaguars HC Doug Pederson announced Tuesday that QB Trevor Lawrence and RB Travis Etienne will not play in Thursday night's Hall of Fame game, the preseason opener. This is not a surprise. Starters rarely make more than a cameo in the "game." We'll see how much preseason action Lawrence and Etienne get beyond that. In the meantime, get fired up for Thursday night's Jake Luton Show. (QB C.J. Beathard also won't play.)

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence discussed part of what went wrong during his rookie year. (We’ll cast aside the Urban Meyer fiasco for now.) Lawrence tossed only 12 TDs to 17 INTs across 17 games. “Last year helped me a lot,” Lawrence said. “That was really my first time really dealing with checking in and out of things, getting us in the right play, good matchup, route, whatever it is. So last year, it was tough to think about all those things.” QB coach Mike McCoy has praised Lawrence for his leadership, work ethic and ability to pick up the new offense. With an upgraded supporting cast and a year of pro experience under his belt, Lawrence should be a QB1 spot-starter in 2022.

The Jaguars fired HC Urban Meyer. He didn't even last a year in Jacksonville. Meyer's performance was embarrassing both on and off the field. Darrell Bevell -- who has 15 years of experience as an OC -- will take over as interim HC. Meyer's departure can only be good news for Jacksonville's offense, although we still wouldn't go too crazy investing in Jaguars down the stretch.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence suffered a low-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Bills, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "X-Rays were negative, little structural issues, and he’ll continue to receive treatment as he did after the game," Rapoport adds. Lawrence was able to play through the injury in Week 9 and should be available for Week 10's game vs. the Colts.
