Jacksonville Jaguars WRs Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee will be looking to give the team their first 1,000-yard receiver since 2005. TE Julius Thomas is expected to be a focal point in the passing game, but there have only been 35 cases of a tight end reaching that goal in NFL history.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas and Robinson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely will have the most value among the team's receivers this season. Both players could be middle-round options in drafts, while Hurns ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and Lee ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) could be options in the late rounds. Thomas will miss the first few weeks of the season because of a finger injury.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas could be out up until around Week 4, so Harbor could see more looks to begin the season. Still, he's nothing more than a low-end TE2, and he'll likely go back to a backup role whenever Thomas is healthy.

Fantasy Tip: This injury puts Thomas into low-end TE1 or high-end TE2 territory. Marcedes Lewis and Clay Harbor will take over the reins at tight end, with Lewis holding more fantasy value. Lewis might be a good option on FantasyScore to start the season, but he's not worth drafting in seasonal leagues.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles improved his mechanics in the offseason. He shortened his windup, lengthened his follow-through and cleaned up some footwork. The tweaks have improved his accuracy. He's hitting receivers in stride on crossing routes, fitting throws into small windows and putting balls where they're going to be catches by his receivers or incompletions this preseason. He has a 65.0% completion percentage. Bortles has also been sacked just twice this preseason.
Fantasy Tip: Bortles is a QB2 that has the upside to enter the low-end QB1 range.

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (finger) is expected to need surgery on a tendon in his finger and is expected to be out four to five weeks, according to a source. Thomas will receive a second opinion on his finger Tuesday, Sept. 1.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas suffered an injury in the first preseason game and will miss more time if he needs surgery. Thomas could still be a No. 1 tight end when he returns, but owners will need a strong backup that can fill in while Thomas is out. Marcedes Lewis likely will start with Thomas out but is not a great fantasy option. Clay Harbor could also see an expanded role but probably should be avoided by owners.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles was second to Russell Wilson with seven rushes of 20 or more yards last season. In total, he ran for 419 yards in his rookie year. If Bortles can improve his passing and maintain his effective running, he'll be a nice sleeper this year, but still shouldn't be drafted as a QB1.

Fantasy Tip: Yeldon should start eventually, but Robinson has played well this season and has looked more ready for real game action. Robinson has some sleeper potential if he starts enough games. Yeldon is in low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 territory.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has missed most of the preseason because of a broken hand but should be ready for the season opener. Thomas should receive plenty of targets this season and could be a No. 1 tight end in most leagues.
