Fantasy Football News 2019

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.

Doctors have cleared Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny to return to practice Wednesday after he missed Sunday's game following surgery on his broken hand. That points to him returning to play in Week 15 against the Falcons. Poz belongs in IDP lineups when he's active.

The Jaguars have ruled MLB Paul Posluszny out for Sunday's game against the Colts because of the broken hand he had repaired earlier this week. That leaves 2nd-year player Jordan Tripp to make his 1st career start in Poz's place.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny had surgery Tuesday on his broken right hand, according to Jacksonville.com, but the team still hopes that he'll be able to play Sunday against the Colts. We'll see as we head toward the weekend. If Poz is active, we'd be willing to use him with the club likely to be covering his right hand.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny broke his right hand late in Sunday's loss to Tennessee. According to The Associated Press, the team is "continuing to evaluate" options for the veteran and that the Jags don't know yet how much time he will miss -- if any. HC Gus Bradley said Jordan Tripp would step in at MLB if Poz can't play against the Colts on Sunday.

ESPN's Mike DiRocco reports that Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny expects to play Sunday against Houston. DiRocco called the veteran a "nearly full" participant in Thursday's practice and said that Poz reported "no problems" with the sprained right ankle that cost him Week 5. Assuming there's no setback between now and Sunday, you should go ahead and stick Posluszny back in your IDP lineup.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny is inactive for today's game against the Bucs. That comes as no surprised after he suffered an ankle sprain last week. It was more surprising that he showed up questionable on the final injury report. Jaguars weak-side LB Telvin Smith makes for 1 of the position's strongest fantasy plays this week.

The Jaguars have deemed LB Paul Posluszny questionable for Sunday's meeting with the Bucs. It's a surprising designation because Poz left Week 4 with a high ankle sprain that's been expected to cost him at least 1 game. He hasn't practiced at all this week, but HC Gus Bradley told the team website that he and the coaches will trust Poz to tell them whether he's ready Sunday. That makes him a game-time decision but an extremely iffy option even if active. Try to find a stronger option for your IDP lineup.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's loss at Indy. That will almost certainly knock him out for Week 5 and often proves to be a multiple-week injury. Unfortunately for the Jags, they also have 2 more games before a Week 8 bye. We'll see if the team tackle leader can make it back before then. Look for OLB Telvin Smith to absorb more tackles while Poz is out. That only makes him look better for an already terrific matchup with Tampa Bay in Week 5. Thurston Armbrister sits behind Poz at MLB on the depth chart.

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.

Doctors cleared Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny on Monday to return from his concussion.  The top 5 fantasy LB missed the Week 11 loss to Arizona but should be all set for Sunday's trip to Houston.  Russell Allen, who started in Poz's place against the Cards, would slide back outside going forward.
The Jaguars have ruled out MLB Paul Posluszny (concussion) for Sunday's matchup with Arizona.  OLB Russell Allen will slide into Poz's vacated role and carry some decent tackle upside for your IDP consideration.  Don't chase after him too hard, though.  The Cardinals present 1 of the league's weakest matchups for fantasy LBs.  No player at the position has posted more than 7 solo tackles against them this year.
Jaguars LB Paul Posluszny missed his 3rd straight practice Friday with a concussion.  HC Gus Bradley said his defensive star still might get cleared in time for Sunday's game, though.  The Jags list Poz questionable on the final injury reports.  We'll keep an eye on his status through the weekend.
Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny suffered a concussion in the 4th quarter of Sunday's win over the Titans.  HC Gus Bradley said Monday that he doesn't know yet whether Poz will miss any games.  The middle man will have to go through the league's protocol before returning to the field.  We'll certainly keep an eye on his status as the week progresses.

NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reported Tuesday night that LB Paul Posluszny agreed to a 6-year deal with the Jaguars. La Canfora said that Posluszny had a tough time leaving Buffalo -- which "fought hard" for him -- but couldn't pass on a return to a 4-3 scheme. Poz will slot in as the MLB in Jacksonville, a role he filled for the  Bills before their 2010 move to a 3-4 front. The bad news for his value is that the Jags tallied the fewest plays in the league on defense over the past 3 seasons. A shaky-looking offense could create more opportunities, but the Jags should at least continue to run the ball efficiently. Posluszny will produce solid tackle numbers, but the ceiling looks lower than it did in Buffalo. This should also mean that free-agent Kirk Morrison will move on. Morrison started at MLB for the Jags last year following a trade from Oakland. He underwhelmed.

Posluszny is arguably the most interesting soon-to-be free agent for IDP purposes. The versatile Bill reiterated in a recent radio interview that he'd like to stick in Buffalo. He also conceded that he enjoyed playing under former DC Perry Fewell, who now guides the Giants defense. If Poz genuinely wants to stay with the Bills, we see no reason why the team wouldn't do what's necessary to keep him. Of course, the whole truth only comes at signing time. The Giants could stand an upgrade at MLB and make sense as a potential destination. We'll be watching him when free agency opens. Poz will be a fantasy stud wherever he lands.

Bills LB Paul Posluszny (knee) is expected to return for the team's Week 4 game against the Jets.  "The plan is to get back out there on Sunday," Poz said.  "It feels good right now."  The tackle-machine will be worth starting in IDP leagues if he's active this coming Sunday.
