Chris Ivory (knee, ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Ivory will be good to go as a touchdown-dependent RB3 for Jacksonville's London clash with the Colts.
Sep 29 - 6:23 PM

Julius Thomas (elbow) is expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday morning's game against the Colts.

Thomas missed another practice Thursday, and is looking mighty shaky for Jacksonville/Indy's "Breakfast at Wimbledon" 9:30 AM ET tilt. We'll know early if Thomas is playing, but fantasy owners need a back-up plan. Injuries are always the risk with Thomas, who is a touchdown-scoring force when healthy.
Sep 29 - 1:14 PM

Jaguars OC Greg Olson vowed to "get this run game fixed."

Running backs have averaged just 2.24 yards per carry for the Jaguars this season, and it did not get any better in Chris Ivory's return last week. The running game has a theoretical "get-right game" against the Colts on Sunday, but Indy played much better against the run last week and are starting to get healthy. With the offensive line in shambles, the Jaguars will struggle to run the ball all season.
Sep 29 - 10:32 AM

Chris Ivory (ankle/knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Ivory tweaked both his knee and ankle in his first game action of the year after missing the first two weeks with an illness. The limited practice suggests he will be ready to play Sunday, but it is a situation to monitor all week. The Jags get the Colts in an early game in London this week.
Sep 29 - 8:47 AM

Julius Thomas (elbow) is not practicing Wednesday.

It's a new injury for Thomas. He played his normal snap count last week against the Ravens, so it could just be a minor thing. For now, we'd expect him to play Sunday against the Colts in London where he'd be a TE1.
Sep 28 - 2:00 PM

Julius Thomas hauled in two-of-five targets for 13 yards Sunday in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

After flexing his muscles with 135 yards over his first two contests, Thomas was rarely seen or heard from. Four of his five targets came after halftime as the Jaguars worked to chip away at a 16-7 third-quarter deficit. He saw fewer targets than Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee. Thomas is still a big red zone presence and will have some decent weeks, but fantasy owners need to be prepared for a few duds along the way. This was one of them. Thomas will be a mid-range TE1 next week when the Jags face the Colts in London.
Sep 25 - 5:06 PM

T.J. Yeldon turned six carries into 17 yards and caught two-of-three targets for 11 yards Sunday in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

Yeldon drew the start but was ultimately out-touched by Chris Ivory 13-8. He had zero running room behind Jacksonville’s non-existent offensive line. At least he was on the field when Jacksonville was trailing in the fourth quarter, which figures to be a frequent occurrence this year. There hasn’t been much to like about Jacksonville’s running game this season. Yeldon should probably be avoided in fantasy next week, even in a plus matchup against the Colts.
Sep 25 - 5:04 PM

Chris Ivory tallied 14 yards on 12 carries and secured his only target for nine yards Sunday in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

Ivory was absent for the Jaguars’ opening drive but resurfaced on the following possession. The good news is that Ivory out-touched T.J. Yeldon by a comfortable 13-8 margin. The bad news is that he was horribly inefficient and the Jaguars’ offensive line did almost nothing to protect him, standing idly by while Ivory and Yeldon spent the afternoon running into brick walls. Jacksonville’s running game has been stagnant all season and that probably won’t change even with Ivory back in the lineup. Ivory will be a touchdown-or-bust RB3 next week when the Jags travel to London to face the Colts.
Sep 25 - 5:01 PM

Blake Bortles completed 24-of-38 passes for two touchdowns and three interceptions and rushed three times for 17 yards in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

Bortles started off poorly, completing just 10-of-19 passes for 78 yards in the first half. He fared a little better after halftime, particularly in the third quarter when he connected on 9-of-10 throws for 87 yards and a touchdown. Both of his scores went to Allen Robinson, who played out of his mind on Sunday. Despite a few nice stretches, Bortles ultimately couldn’t get out of his own way, losing the game with a pair of fourth quarter interceptions. The first was a complete misfire to T.J. Yeldon that wound up in the hands of Tavon Young. Bortles was picked again on a desperation heave with 15 seconds left in regulation. Through three games the Jaguars have looked just as inept as they've always been despite entering the year with unusually high expectations. Coach Gus Bradley will be lucky to keep his job after Sunday’s embarrassment.
Sep 25 - 4:59 PM

Allen Robinson corralled seven-of-11 targets for 57 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

Robinson was expected to draw shadow coverage from Jimmy Smith but was mostly followed by Shareece Wright. That’s who he beat on both of his touchdowns with the first coming on a three-yard pass off play-action late in the second quarter. Robinson extended that drive with two third-down conversions. Later Robinson delivered a sprawling 11-yard touchdown on a play that was originally called incomplete but was overturned on review. It was a nice bounce-back effort for Robinson, who was mostly held in check during Jacksonville’s first two games. He’ll be back on the WR1 radar next week against the Colts.
Sep 25 - 4:57 PM

Allen Hurns secured four-of-eight targets for 40 yards Sunday in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

Hurns didn’t see his first target until the second quarter as the Jaguars’ passing game took a while to get going. He came close to reeling in a long completion that would have set Jacksonville up with a first-and-goal but Eric Weddle swatted it away at the last second. Hurns is still seeing a steady diet of targets but it’s a little bit of a red flag that he hasn’t scored yet this year. He’ll look to end his touchdown drought next week against the Colts.
Sep 25 - 4:55 PM

Marqise Lee snagged five-of-seven targets for 44 yards Sunday in the Jaguars' Week 3 loss to the Ravens.

Most of his yards came after halftime as the Jaguars actually looked competent for a stretch in the third quarter. Lee’s biggest play came on a 20-yard catch-and-run that came during an 11-play, 78-yard touchdown drive. He actually had Jimmy Smith beat on a play that could have gone for a long touchdown in the first quarter, but the ball was slightly overthrown by Blake Bortles. Despite seeing seven targets each of the last two weeks, we’re not expecting a big fantasy game from Lee against the Colts in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 4:53 PM

Chris Ivory (illness) is active for Week 3 against the Ravens.

Ivory is finally ready to make his Jaguars debut after missing the first two games with what the team is calling a "general medical issue." He won't see a full workload in his first game back but Ivory is still the favorite for goal-line carries. That makes him a touchdown-or-bust RB3. Obviously Ivory's return will put a major dent in T.J. Yeldon's fantasy value.
Sep 25 - 11:54 AM

Jaguars declared LT Kelvin Beachum, QB Brandon Allen, CB Prince Amukamara, C Brandon Linder, TE Ben Koyack, DE Jared Odrick and DE Chris Smith inactive for Week 3 against the Ravens.

Beachum is week to week with a concussion while Amukamara is battling a hamstring injury. Damon House (hamstring, illness) and Chris Ivory (general medical issue) are both active for Jacksonville.
Sep 25 - 11:43 AM

Jaguars C Brandon Linder (knee) is out for Week 3 against the Ravens.

He got hurt on Wednesday. The Jaguars will also be without LT Kelvin Beachum (concussion). Jacksonville's offensive line completely failed to open run-game holes in the first two weeks when their line was at full strength, so we wouldn't expect any improvement from the decimated group Sunday against the Ravens.
