Fantasy Tip: Lee has been dealing with a nagging knee injury this offseason, possibly giving Hurns a head start on staring opposite Robinson. This, of course, could depend on how quickly Lee recovers and how long it will take for him to acclimate to normal playing time and conditions. Lee is more of an attraction from a fantasy standpoint if he's healthy, but both should be taken as a WR5 for now.

Fantasy Tip: Greene is worth a late-round flier on draft day, as he could quickly emerge as a viable fantasy option sooner rather than later.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders isn't expected to have much in the way of fantasy appeal unless injuries create a more significant role.

Fantasy Tip: Lee is projected to be the No. 3 wide receiver behind WRs Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns. Unless he can leapfrog one of the two and find his way into a starting role, he is best left to the waiver wire on draft day.

Fantasy Tip: Harbor could re-emerge as a viable fantasy option, but he will need an injury to Thomas to see significant reps.

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis is in what is expected to be his final season with the team, and with TE Julius Thomas now in the mix Lewis should see time as a blocker and less as a pass catcher.
Fantasy Tip: If Thomas is able to stay healthy then the fantasy appeal for Lewis will be negligible, especially with Clay Harbor projected to be the primary backup.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson had a chance as an every-down back last season, but with RB T.J. Yeldon in the fold Robinson is only expected to sub in for certain situations. He might also win the kickoff return role, too.
Fantasy Tip: Shoelace emerged as a viable RB3 or flex play in fantasy leagues last season, but he will likely need an injury or two like last season to see a significant amount of touches. On draft day, it's best to stay away.
Wed, 24 Jun 2015 19:41:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gerhart wasn't that attractive last season, even as an every-down back, but he is especially less attractive with significantly fewer reps. Fantasy owners in leagues of 12 or more teams will want him in the later rounds for depth, but that's about it.

Fantasy Tip: Yeldon might work in a crowded committee with Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson, but Yeldon clearly has the most upside. He wouldn't be a bad RB3 or flex fantasy option worthy of a late-round pick on draft day.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Bernard Pierce is not projected to make the 53-man roster, according to beat writer Ryan O'Halloran. Pierce is believed to be in the running for the No. 4 job with RBs Storm Johnson and Corey Grant behind RBs T.J. Yeldon, Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson.
Fantasy Tip: Even if Pierce can wiggle his way into a job in Jacksonville, he has a lot of work to do before he re-emerges as a fantasy threat again.
Wed, 24 Jun 2015 19:38:02 -0700
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Corey Grant is projected by beat writer Ryan O'Halloran to serve as the No. 4 tailback on the 53-man roster, edging out RBs Storm Johnson and Bernard Pierce. Grant is believed to have the edge because of his ability as a gunner on punt coverage and kickoffs.
Fantasy Tip: Grant isn't expected to have much in the way of fantasy appeal unless injuries decimate the Jacksonville backfield.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon said he sees himself at the bottom of the running back depth chart and wants to work his up to the starting position. "I got myself as last, and I'm still trying to work my way up to the top," Yeldon said. "I'm just out there to compete and work my way up to the top, see what I can do." Yeldon said he believes he can be a three-down back for the team but wants to take things one step at a time.
Fantasy Tip: Yeldon probably will have to compete for carries during training camp but has a good chance to be the starting running back. Yeldon could be an option in the middle rounds of drafts this season as a No. 2 or No. 3 running back on a team.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles started 13 games in his rookie season, and he projects to be unchallenged for starts in 2015. Bortles has some new toys on offense, and he has the upside to become a fantasy option, but he'll enter the season as a high QB2.
Thu, 18 Jun 2015 18:14:26 -0700
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Clay Harbor (calf) said Thursday, June 18, he expects to be ready for the opening of training camp July 31. Harbor said he could probably play if there was a game this coming Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: Harbor is the second 'move' tight end in the Jaguars' offense, behind Julius Thomas. Harbor won't be an option for fantasy drafts, but he could be a nice FantasyScore play, if Thomas misses any time due to injury this season.
