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 in Week 2. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sep 25 - 8:20 AM

The Jaguars are expected to be without CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) for Week 3 against the Ravens.

It's a plus to Joe Flacco's matchup. Without Amukamara in Week 2, the Jags were utterly torched by Philip Rivers for four touchdown passes while ceding a mammoth game to Travis Benjamin and a long touchdown to Tyrell Williams.
Sep 25 - 8:19 AM

Jaguars TE Ben Koyack underwent knee surgery on Saturday.

He'll miss multiple weeks with a torn meniscus. The injury leaves Neal Sterling as Jacksonville's No. 3 tight end.

Jaguars added CB Davon House to the injury report as questionable with an illness.

House missed Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury, but he was a full participant Friday. Things are not getting any better a secondary which is likely to be without Prince Amukamara (hamstring, questionable) and could be without FS Tashaun Gipson, who was listed as questionable after picking up a hamstring injury Friday. Joe Flacco is set up for a big game.
Sep 24 - 11:35 AM

Jaguars FS Tashaun Gipson was added to the injury report Friday with a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable for Week 3

Late-week additions are never good, but coach Gus Bradley thinks Gipson will "be fine." Gipson agrees, saying there is "no doubt" he will play. With Prince Amukamara (hamstring, questionable) unlikely to play after sitting out practice all week, an already struggling secondary could be shorthanded against the Ravens.

Sep 23 - 6:44 PM

Jaguars LT Kelvin Beachum (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Luke Joeckel figures to slide over from left guard to man Blake Bortles' blind side. It's a big downgrade. Starting C Brandon Linder (knee) is questionable. It's unlikely this line creates many running lanes Sunday.
