  • Christian Kirk Taking Part In OTAs

    Headshot for Christian Kirk

    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Christian Kirk (knee) was on the field taking part in organized team activities on Tuesday. It looks as though Kirk will be just fine for training camp at the end of July after he hurt his knee in the playoff loss to the Los Angeles Chargers earlier this year. The 26-year-old pass-catcher finished 12th in half-PPR scoring in 2022 in his first year in Jacksonville with 84 catches on 133 targets for 1,108 yards and eight touchdowns in 17 regular season games, but Calvin Ridley is now in town and will take some targets away. Still, barring injury, Kirk will play a big role in the Jaguars' improving offense under rising young quarterback Trevor Lawrence, making him a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 target in fantasy drafts.

  • Calvin Ridley To Remain Limited Until Training Camp

    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Calvin Ridley will be a full participant in practice when training camp rolls around, but for now, head coach Doug Pederson said the team is being careful with the former Atlanta Falcon. Ridley hasn't seen game action since Week 7 of the 2021 season, so he'll be slowly eased back into action. However, Pederson said he has seen no sign of rust. Ridley posted 1,374 receiving yards on 90 receptions in 2020 before stepping away from the team in early 2021. The 28-year-old will look to be Trevor Lawrence's No. 1 WR and recapture his former upside in his first season in Duval County.

  • Evan Engram Absent From OTAs

    Headshot for Evan Engram

    Unsurprisingly, Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram is not present at voluntary organized team activities this week. This was expected with Engram still trying to secure a long-term contract extension from the team after his breakout 2022 campaign. The Jags put the franchise tag on Engram, but there is optimism that the two sides can work out something long term before the 2023 season. In his first year in Jacksonville in 2022, the 28-year-old set career-highs in catches (73) and receiving yards (766) while adding four touchdowns on 98 targets in 17 regular season games (14 starts). Fantasy managers probably shouldn't overspend for Engram, but at the very least he should be considered a solid low-end TE1 target.

  • Jaguars To Reduce Travis Etienne's Workload

    Headshot for Tank Bigsby

    Travis Etienne made his long-awaited debut with the Jaguars in 2022, and he delivered a strong season as the team’s lead running back. The former first-rounder is part of a more crowded RB room in Jacksonville, now, however, something which is expected to affect his usage rate. Jacksonville turned lead back duties over to Etienne on […]

  • Travis Etienne Jr. Could See Reduced Workload

    Headshot for Travis Etienne

    Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne Jr. took 74 percent of the snaps in the backfield last season. It sounds like the Jaguars would like to reduce that amount next season, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco. Recently, head coach Doug Pederson praised the depth this team has at running back. They've added D'Ernest Johnson and Tank Bigsby to their backfield to play alongside Etienne. The expectation is that both of those players are going to have a role as the backups to Etienne. It remains to be seen how the Jaguars decide to split up the snaps. The organization believes that having a committee at running back will help keep everyone fresh and healthy. Fantasy managers don't need to panic, but Etienne's value could be taking a hit, assuming the Jaguars do go with a three-back committee next season.

  • Travis Etienne Jr. Working On "Fine Tuning" Skills

    Headshot for Travis Etienne

    Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne Jr. entered training camp last offseason working his way back from a foot injury that cost him his rookie year. However, the 24-year-old is healthy this offseason, so he's focused on "fine-tuning" his skills. "Last year was more about getting healthy and getting back," said Etienne during OTAs. "This year, I didn't have to worry about my foot. It's great. So I'm able to work on football, all football." Although Etienne got off to a slow start in 2022-23, he still finished with 1,125 yards and five rushing touchdowns off 220 carries. He also caught 35 passes for 316 yards. Nonetheless, the former Clemson Tiger is the top option on the depth chart, so he may easily surpass his ADP projections this season.

  • Lions Acquire Riley Patterson From Jaguars

    Before the Jacksonville Jaguars released kicker Riley Patterson, they agreed to send him to the Detroit Lions on Thursday in exchange for a late-round draft pick. Patterson became expendable in Jacksonville after the Jags signed former Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus. The 23-year-old played in 17 games for the Jaguars in his second year in the NFL in 2022 and made 85.7 percent of his 35 field-goal attempts while missing just one of his 37 extra-point tries. He kicked for the Lions in his rookie season and made 13 of his 14 field-goal attempts in seven games. Patterson is now set to compete for the kicking job this summer with Michael Badgley and John Parker Romo in Detroit.

  • Jaguars Sign Brandon McManus

    Headshot for Brandon McManus

    The Jacksonville Jaguars signed free-agent kicker Brandon McManus to an undisclosed deal on Thursday, the team announced. In a corresponding move, the Jaguars waived kicker Riley Patterson. After nine seasons in Denver, the Broncos released McManus earlier this week, but he has found a new home quickly. The 31-year-old had one of his worst seasons in 2022, going 28-for-36 (77.8 percent) on his field-goal tries while also going 25-for-27 on extra points in 17 games. However, he did attempt 13 kicks from 50-plus yards out last year and was a perfect 10-for-10 on kicks from 40-49 yards. In Jacksonville, he'll have a chance to become fantasy relevant again in an offense that is on the rise under young quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

  • Calvin Ridley Impresses at First OTAs Since Being Reinstated

    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Calvin Ridley looked good on the Jags' first day of organized team activities. Offensive coordinator Press Taylor said, "I've been really impressed with Calvin. I've watched every snap Calvin's played in the NFL, just like a lot of our guys have. So we're very confident in the player we're getting." The Jaguars tweeted a video of Ridley moving his feet quickly in an agility ladder drill with the comment, "Slow feet, don't eat." Ridley caught 31 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns in five games with the Falcons in 2021, his last season of NFL action, but he was impacted by mental health issues that season. In 2020, which was his last full season, he caught 90 passes for 1,374 yards and nine touchdowns.

  • Tank Bigsby Could Be No. 2 Back

    Headshot for Tank Bigsby

    Jacksonville Jaguars running back Tank Bigsby should have the inside track to the No. 2 job in the backfield, according to John Shipley. The rookie back was reportedly impressing the team during OTAs last week. The Jags selected Bigsby in the third round of this year's NFL Draft. The Auburn product could very well earn his way up the depth chart quickly in Jacksonville. His main competition is D'Ernest Johnson and JaMycal Henry with Travis Etienne set to be the lead back. Bigsby could very well have an impactful role in the offense by the time Week 1 rolls around. He's someone worth keeping an eye on as draft seasons creeps up.

  • Jaylon Moore Placed On Injured Reserve

    The Jacksonville Jaguars placed wide receiver Jaylon Moore (undisclosed) on Injured Reserve on Wednesday and signed linebacker Willie Taylor III in a corresponding move. It looks like Moore will miss all of the 2023 season after he signed a Reserve/Futures contract with the team following last year. The 25-year-old pass-catcher has bounced around with a few teams after going undrafted in 2020, and he hasn't played in an NFL game to this point. Taylor played in the XFL for the Arlington Renegades this spring and had 11 tackles and four sacks. He played collegiately at Washington State from 2017-21 before transferring to Eastern Kentucky for 2022.

  • Antonio Johnson To See Action As Box Safety

    Jacksonville Jaguars rookie safety Antonio Johnson was Dane Brugler's second-ranked safety and 70th-ranked player overall with a second-/third-round grade, and the Jaguars were able to get him in the fifth round of this year's NFL draft with the 160th overall pick. Johnson fills a big need in the team's secondary and should see plenty of action in his rookie season in 2023 as a box safety. The Texas A&M product only had one interception in his collegiate career, which probably means he won't be much of an IDP option for fantasy managers, but he plays with plenty of speed. The 21-year-old will likely compete with Andrew Wingard and Daniel Thomas for the team's third safety spot this summer at training camp.
