Leonard Fournette said his ankle could bother him the rest of the season.

"The best way for me to get it healed is to rest, and I don’t have that much time," Fournette said. "[The coaches] have a great plan throughout the week to keep me fresh. That’s about it." Fournette did not look any worse for wear as he rumbled through a previously stout Browns run defense for 111 yards on Sunday. While he is unlikely to practice much over the next several weeks, it looks like the plan is for Fournette to gut it out the rest of the way.

T.J. Yeldon rushed five times for 15 yards in the Jaguars' Week 11 win over the Browns.

Yeldon added a five-yard catch. The Jags tried to create the perception that Leonard Fournette would be inactive or limited, but he started and dominated snaps and work. Yeldon is off the radar until Fournette's next injury.

Keelan Cole caught 3-of-6 targets for 24 yards in the Jaguars' Week 11 win over the Browns.

With Allen Hurns (ankle) sidelined, Cole was announced as a starter, but mostly rotated with Dede Westbrook behind Marqise Lee. Pro Football Focus did chart Cole as out-snapping Westbrook 45-34, but Westbrook had the same amount of catches and targets while posting more yards. Cole has been catching some passes, but there isn't any fantasy value here.

Dede Westbrook caught 3-of-6 targets for 35 yards in the Jaguars' Week 11 win over the Browns.

Westbrook had a fourth catch on a sensational sideline toe-tapper, but the replay review crew inexplicably said it wasn't a grab. Westbrook also fumbled near the end of the second quarter, but the ball squibbed out of bounds. Per Pro Football Focus, Westbrook was out-snapped 45-34 by Keelan Cole. All in all, it was a positive, if low-key, NFL debut, but not one that suggested Westbrook is about to provide re-draft value.
Nov 19 - 6:32 PM

Marqise Lee caught 5-of-9 targets for 45 yards in the Jaguars' Week 11 win over the Browns.

Lee spent some time on the trainer's table early, but was never announced with an injury. Averaging five catches on 10 targets over his past three games, Lee has solidified his WR4 value in fantasy. He offers WR3 upside, but will have a hard time hitting it most weeks with Blake Bortles at quarterback. The Jags don't score passing touchdowns. Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals are on tap for Week 12.
Nov 19 - 6:27 PM

Blake Bortles completed 17-of-30 passes for 154 yards and one touchdown in the Jaguars' 19-7, Week 11 win over the Browns.

Bortles also fumbled twice, losing one. The Jags' defense positively dominated the Browns' inept offense, but Cleveland still had the ball with a chance to win with 1:30 remaining. Thankfully for the Jags, DeShone Kizer is even worse than Bortles. The Jags' quarterback remains a major liability. He's thrown for one or zero touchdowns in 9-of-10 starts this season. He won't be on the streaming radar against the Cardinals in Week 12.
Nov 19 - 5:23 PM

Leonard Fournette rushed 28 times for 111 yards in the Jaguars' Week 11 win over the Browns.

Fournette added two catches for seven yards. After another week of injury games from the Jaguars, Fournette was not limited in any way, and became the first opposing rusher all season to have a 100-yard game against the Browns. Fournette was still shuttled off the field in most passing/hurry-up situations, but the Jags kept feeding him as Blake Bortles did nothing under center. The 100-yard rushing effort was Fournette's third in his past four games. He gets the Cardinals for Week 12.
Nov 19 - 5:06 PM

Jaguars WR Keelan Cole is listed as the starter over Dede Westbrook in Allen Hurns' (ankle) absence.

Westbrook is the more hyped prospect, but it's not a surprise since Cole has been the one playing and contributing in recent weeks. Neither receiver is a recommended fantasy option for Week 11.
Nov 19 - 11:43 AM

Leonard Fournette (questionable, ankle) is active for Week 11 against the Browns.

Fournette's ankle is still bothering him but apparently he showed enough in pre-game warmups to get the green light for Sunday's game in Cleveland. The Jaguars may be tempted to lean on their ground attack with winds expected in the range of 20-25 mph throughout the game. Even at less than 100 percent, Fournette remains on the RB1 spectrum. Inactive for the Jaguars are DB Jalen Myrick, LB Blair Brown, DT Eli Ankou, OT William Poehls, OG Patrick Omameh, OT Jermey Parnell and WR Allen Hurns.
Nov 19 - 11:12 AM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars are "optimistic" Leonard Fournette (questionable, ankle) will play Week 11 against the Browns.

The plan is for Fournette to test out his ankle during pre-game warmups, though the Jags think he'll be a go for Sunday's 1 PM ET kickoff in Cleveland. Fournette didn't look right in last week's win over the Chargers and drew the questionable tag after sitting out Friday's practice. Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon would handle the backfield work if Fournette sits another week. It would be his third absence in four games.
Nov 19 - 8:04 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Jaguars are "non-committal" on Leonard Fournette (ankle) playing Week 11 against the Browns.

Schefter reports the team will have Fournette test out his ankle pregame, making him a true game-time decision. Likely to beat the Browns regardless, it would not be surprising if Jacksonville decides to play it safe with their best offensive player. Both Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon will be usable if Fournette sits, but Ivory will be the better fantasy bet.
Nov 19 - 1:44 AM

Jaguars RT Jermey Parnell (knee) has been downgraded to out for Week 11.

The Jaguars listed Parnell as questionable, but he was never expected to play. Josh Wells should replace Parnell at right tackle. Jacksonville will also be without LG Patrick Omameh (quad) against the Browns.

Jaguars activated S Calvin Pryor (ankle) from injured reserve.

A first-round pick of the Jets in 2014, Pryor was picked up off waivers from the Browns in September. He is unlikely to play a big role on defense, but he should help out on special teams. Jacksonville also promoted WR Larry Pinkard from the practice squad, waived DT Sheldon Day and WR Jaelen Strong, and placed WR Arrelious Benn (knee) on injured reserve.
Nov 18 - 12:07 PM

Jaguars activated Dede Westbrook (core muscle surgery) from injured reserve.

This was expected with Allen Hurns out with an ankle injury. Westbrook is not expected to play a big role in his first career game, although the receiver predicted he will get 200 yards against the Browns. We will take the under. Westbrook is worth stashing in all leagues, but he is just a desperation fantasy option this week.
Nov 18 - 11:48 AM

Marqise Lee (knee) wasn't listed on the Jaguars' final injury report for Week 11 against the Browns.

His status for Sunday's game in Cleveland was never in doubt. Lee is in an excellent spot with Allen Hurns (ankle) sidelined this week and Jacksonville likely to throw more with Leonard Fournette (ankle) hobbled. He'll be on the WR2 radar against the winless Browns.
