Season Outlook

Jacksonville's offense had rough 2016 campaign, with third-year QB Blake Bortles' failing to live up to his lofty expectations. Bortles tied for the second-most touchdowns in 2015, throwing 35 scores. Last season, Bortles' touchdown total plummeted to 23 while throwing an unsettling 16 interceptions. He isn't the most accurate QB in the world, but he has a cannon of an arm that can provide fantasy owners a significant return in fantasy points. He remains an average QB1 with big play upside. Drafting LSU RB Leonard Fournette with the fourth overall pick this offseason could hinder Bortles' offensive production as the Jaguars haven't had the luxury of a threatening presence like Fournette to hand the ball to, relying more through the air. The Jaguars were in dire need, as T.J. Yeldon and his lowly 31 yards per game in 13 games started will move into a secondary role while 2015 free agent signing Chris Ivory's season was hampered by injuries and finished the season with his lowest rushing total since 2012. Fournette has RB2 upside and one of the top sleeper options at the RB position. WRs Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns are the main beneficiaries of Bortles' strong arm, with Robinson registering 1,400 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns in 2015. Though Robinson only managed to rack up 883 total yards and six touchdowns a season later, he is an attractive option as WR2 heading into 2017. Hurns showcased his big play ability in 2015 when the undrafted free agent averaged 16 yards per reception and offers value as high-end FLEX option with WR2 upside. Doug Marrone is entering his first full season as the Jaguars head coach and has brought Nathaniel Hackett to run the offense. The pair have worked together since 2009 and will implement their hybrid Air Coryell offense, which will simplify Bortles' reads as well as provide a much more balanced pass attack with the occasional option run sprinkled in.

Player Outlooks & Draft Analysis

Quarterbacks

Blake Bortles

The Jags have noted that they may have Bortles get more aggressive downfield this season, which makes sense with their personnel changes, as Westbrook, Cole, and Moncrief all have big play ability. That would be good for the offense overall and should help Bortles from a fantasy perspective, but he's never going to be throwing the ball 35+ times a game by design so his fantasy ceiling is capped.

Cody Kessler

Kessler has had marginal success as a starter in Cleveland, but he's depth here and holds no 2018 value with Bortles healthy.

Running Backs

Leonard Fournette

Fournette should be a lock for 300+ touches again this season, and the proficiency he displayed as a receiver last year should be a boon to his value. With one of the league's elite defenses the Jags are going to pound Fournette all day every day again in 2018 and he's a solid backend RB1 after some of the elite options.

Defenses

Jacksonville Defense

The Jaguars ended last season as one of the top defenses and we should expect them to pick up right where they left off. They finished the season with the second most sacks 55, and the second most interceptions 21. They have one of the best defensive cores in the league and they come in with the fourth-easiest strength of schedule this year. They scored a league-high eight touchdowns last season while allowing the second-fewest yards. In the offseason, they did lose Paul Posluszny and CB Aaron Colvin, which should prove to be significant losses. AJ Bouye and Jalen Ramsey are their two starting corners for the Jags, both which finished in the top 12 graded cornerbacks according to ProFootballFocus. Currently, the Jaguars are the top drafted defense across the industry and will likely stay that way throughout the summer.
