  Jaguars | Yannick Ngakoue in contact    Tue Aug 11, 10:32 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue has been in contact with general manager David Caldwell, but it's unknown whether he'll report to camp.

Footballguys view: NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Ngakoue has parted ways with his agent. There has been buzz that Ngakoue would be willing to play on his franchise tag elsewhere. He has not signed his tag for the Jaguars and is a no-show for camp.

  Jaguars | Laviska Shenault Jr. turning heads    Fri Aug 7, 09:40 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. was described as a 'freak' by QB Gardner Minshew, who also praised Shenault for his route running.

Footballguys view: Shenault is a freakish athlete and could end up being one of the best receivers in this potentially historic 2020 wide receiver class. The rookie from Colorado has strength after the catch like Julio Jones and Shenault has tremendous body control to make crazy catches seem routine.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aug. 4.

  Jaguars | Four players placed on COVID list    Sun Aug 2, 04:15 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Ryquell Armstead, TE Charles Jones, WR Michael Walker and S Andrew Wingard were placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Armstead is the primary backup to Leonard Fournette. He's a handcuff for Fantasy GMs if you've got the roster space on the bench. His absence could help former Nebraska UDFA Devine Ozigbo impress in practice. Veteran Chris Thompson is also there as a change-of-pace back.

  Jaguars | Gardner Minshew on COVID list    Sun Aug 2, 04:09 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Minshew is the second starting quarterback (Matthew Stafford) to be put on the COVID/Reserve list. The COVID-19 list is designated for players who test positive for the virus or have been in contact with someone who has the virus. Minshew will quarantine for a couple of weeks and have to pass a test before he can practice. Josh Dobbs and Mike Glennon are the two QBs vying for the backup job in 2020.

  Jaguars | Three draft picks sign with Jaguars    Mon Jul 20, 07:46 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars fifth-round draft choice S Daniel Thomas, sixth-round draft choice QB Jake Luton and seventh-round draft choice CB Chris Claybrooks signed four-year contracts with the Jaguars Monday, July 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Luton is a quarterback we'll watch in super deep dynasty formats. In college at Oregon State, Luton displayed great toughness in addition to fine mechanics as a passer. He's not a rusher and won't move off his spot to avoid the rush. Luton has the makings of a player bound for the practice squad to develop.

  Jaguars | K'Lavon Chaisson signs rookie deal    Mon Jul 20, 07:45 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars first-round draft choice LB K'Lavon Chaisson signed a four-year contract with the Jaguars Monday, July 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Chaisson was one of the best EDGE players in the 2020 NFL draft. He can quickly and cleanly get after the quarterback. Chaisson does not have a fully developed game but the upside is there for him to be a perennial Pro Bowl player.

  Jaguars | Josiah Scott under contract    Fri Jul 17, 07:00 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars fourth-round draft choice CB Josiah Scott signed a four-year contract with the Jaguars Friday, July 17. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Scott could be the team's slot corner as a rookie, which will certainly interest DFS players when Randall Cobb, Adam Humphries, and Parris Campbell face the Jaguars. He is undersized at 5'9" 185, but Scott plays with competitive toughness and should be a big special teams contributor.

  Jaguars | Gardner Minshew tops in scramble rate    Fri Jul 17, 01:05 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew had the highest scramble rate (8.9 percent) of any quarterback in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus data.

Footballguys view: This can create a foundation for rushing stats, but it's also a picture of a rookie quarterback. Minshew's game should be more mature this year and he might be a viable QB2/Superflex with little to no legitimate competition on the roster. Even if the Jaguars draft a quarterback high next year, Minshew can make a resume for the other 31 teams to reference when he's a free agency in 2023 with his performance this year.

  Jaguars | CJ Henderson officially signs    Thu Jul 16, 05:10 PM

Updating a previous story, Jacksonville Jaguars first-round pick DB CJ Henderson officially signed his four-year rookie contract with a fifth-year option Thursday, July 16. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

  Jaguars | CJ Henderson agrees to rookie deal    Thu Jul 16, 01:52 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars CB CJ Henderson agreed to terms Thursday, July 16, on his four-year rookie deal that includes a team option for the fifth year. The financial terms follow the NFL's slotting rules, and Henderson will receive $20.5 million in guaranteed money with no offset language.

Footballguys view: Henderson should be a Week 1 starter with Tre Herndon the likely counterpart on the other side of the field. The Jaguars should be a choice matchup for wide receivers and quarterbacks, especially if Yannick Ngakoue is traded or holds out. Henderson is set up well in IDP leagues for an instant impact with the likelihood that he gets targeted frequently.

  Jaguars | JAX holding firm on Yannick Ngakoue    Wed Jul 15, 10:57 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Yannick Ngakoue has been in discussions with other teams about a long-term deal, but the Jaguars have been the holdup as they seem unwilling to trade him.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars appear to be drawing the line with Ngakoue after giving Jalen Ramsey the trade he was seeking last year. Ngakoue could decide to play out this year for 17.78 million and perhaps hope for a midseason trade, but he could also try the strategy of opting out of playing if the players get that right and seeing if the Jaguars will trade him next year.

  Jaguars | Laviska Shenault Jr. has chance to start    Sun Jul 12, 10:20 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. will compete with veteran WR Chris Conley during training camp to be the team's No. 2 receiver behind WR DJ Chark.

Footballguys view: Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole will also play roles in the Jaguars passing game. Only DJ Chark is sure to be fantasy relevant this year, but Shenault is the only other receiver out of the top four that will be under contract next year. Shenault could also line up in the backfield and other spots in the formation to get the ball in his hands in space.

  Jaguars | Ben Bartch signs rookie deal    Fri Jul 10, 03:58 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars fourth-round draft choice OG Ben Bartch signed a four-year contract with the Jaguars Friday, July 10. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Bartch is the first Division III player David Caldwell has drafted with the Jaguars. He played tackle at St. John's (Minnesota) but Jacksonville appears to be planning to start him out at guard behind AJ Cann. The Jaguars have signed six of their 12 picks, but have yet to get the signatures of first round picks CJ Henderson and K'Lavon Chaisson.

  Jaguars | Laviska Shenault Jr. signs rookie deal    Thu Jul 9, 05:00 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars second-round WR Laviska Shenault Jr. officially signed his four-year rookie contract Thursday, July 9. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: Shenault should be lined up all over the formation and have a chance to make an impact as a rookie. Only DJ Chark is under contract for 2021 among the top receivers, so Shenault's time to shine is coming soon.

  Jaguars | Fewer grabs for Leonard Fournette?    Sat Jul 4, 09:59 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette could see his reception total cut in half in 2020 because of the addition of RB Chris Thompson, according to Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Thompson has never been known for his durability, but he should be the leading target out of the backfield as long as he is on the field. Fournette is likely in his last year with the Jaguars, so the team could also look to younger options like Ryquell Armstead more as the year goes on.

  Jaguars | DaVon Hamilton signs rookie deal    Mon Jun 29, 03:19 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars third-round draft choice DT DaVon Hamilton signed a four-year contract with the Jaguars Monday, June 29, worth $4.81 million. The deal includes a $1.065 million signing bonus.

Footballguys view: Hamilton only started three games for Ohio State entering the 2019 season. In 2019, he started 14 games for the Buckeyes and posted career-best numbers with 10.5 tackles for loss and 6.0 sacks. At 320 pounds, Hamilton has first-step quickness and uses rip moves to apply interior pressure on opposing quarterbacks. He has violent striking hands and could work his way into the rotation quickly as an early-down defensive tackle.

  Jaguars | Leonard Fournette does it all    Wed Jun 24, 10:33 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette's contributions in 2019 were praised by head coach Doug Marrone. 'I think Leonard did everything that we wanted him to do - you talk about a workhorse,' Marrone said. 'A guy that carried the load, a guy that had a ton of receptions.'

Footballguys view: In Fournette's first two seasons, he had 58 receptions combined. In 2019, Fournette had a whopping 76 catches but that number should go down this year. The Jaguars went out in free agency and added pass-catching back Chris Thompson. Fournette should still be the banger between the tackles, but Thompson is a better receiving option and should get more catches (giving Fournette less) in 2020.

  Jaguars | Teammate praises Gardner Minshew's initiative    Mon Jun 22, 11:52 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew has reportedly organized video sessions with his teammates - in addition to the regular virtual OTA meetings run by the coaches - as players try to work through the offense together remotely, according to TE Tyler Eifert.'(Minshew) took charge, took initiative during the OTAs to get the guys together aside from our OTA meetings. We'd get on and do like a virtual walkthrough. It's just good to learn a little bit different than just looking at your installs and trying to memorize it. You've got to think on your feet a little bit,' Eifert told Sirius XM NFL Radio.

Footballguys view: Minshew looked to be in better shape than last year in recent videos too. This is his chance to establish himself as a starting quality NFL quarterback if not for the Jaguars, for 31 other teams if the Jaguars take a quarterback early next year. His dynasty value in superflex leagues hangs in the balance.

  Jaguars | Collin Johnson signs rookie deal    Thu Jun 18, 04:07 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars fifth-round draft choice WR Collin Johnson signed a four-year contract with the Jaguars Thursday, June 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Johnson is a huge target who could work well in the red zone for the Jaguars. He lacks run-after-the-catch ability but Johnson is a strong run-blocker and has soft hands as a receiver. He knows how to use his frame to his advantage and should begin his pro career as a sub-package wide receiver.

  Jaguars | Tyler Davis under contract    Fri Jun 12, 05:58 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars sixth-round draft choice TE Tyler Davis signed a four-year contract with the Jaguars Friday, June 12. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Davis is a blocking tight end who can also contribute on special teams, but chances are there's nothing there for fantasy. He did have six receiving touchdowns at UConn in 2018 and then was used sparingly in the passing game in the triple-option offense at Georgia Tech last year.

  Jaguars | Laviska Shenault Jr. putting in work    Fri Jun 12, 10:34 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars second-round pick WR Laviska Shenault Jr. (abdomen) is doing on-field work to rehab his core muscle injury he had operated on in February.

Footballguys view: Shenault had some concerns about durability in the draft but his ceiling is as high as any receiver in this draft. The Jaguars have plans to use Shenault all over the formation, but if he isn't ready for camp, that will be difficult to follow through on.

  Jaguars | A.J. Cann likely top option at RG    Mon Jun 8, 07:26 PM
