Quarterbacks

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDFLPoints
Blake Bortles537.3326.73842221453.2313.92.13.5250.67
In an ideal world (according to Doug Marrone), Bortles may not throw a single pass all season. In his first full season as head coach, however, the Jags were perfectly balanced -- 527 pass attempts and 527 rush attempts -- with Bortles throwing it more than 100 times less in 2017 than 2016. Despite five interceptions in the last two regular-season games, Bortles played extremely well down the stretch with multiple passing scores and 300-plus yards in three of the four games through Week 16. Over the past three seasons, Bortles has finished as the QB4 (2015), QB10 (2016) and QB13 (2017) and he has the potential to once again outperform his ADP.

Running Backs

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDFLPoints
Leonard Fournette318.51385.510.235.3282.41.20.5234.19
Missing three games as a rookie, Fournette was less than 100 percent for several others but managed to finish as fantasy's RB8 (RB10 in PPR) in Jacksonville's run-first scheme. Down to his lowest weight (223 pounds) since high school, Fournette's drop in weight should help with explosiveness and durability. An NFL rushing champion-to-be based on my statistical projections, Fournette could be even more involved in the passing game in 2018 as well.
T.J. Yeldon81.9356.31.939.7287.81.20.981.21
Better in PPR formats, Yeldon had four-plus catches in four of his 10 games played, but he should cede some work to Corey Grant in the competition for non-Fournette running back touches.
Corey Grant56.3275.92.311.71100.70.755.19
OC Nathaniel Hackett has talked up Grant, calling him a "major change-of-pace back." Grant has just 68 career rush attempts, but he has averaged 6.1 YPC as well as 9.9 Y/R on his nine career receptions.

Wide Receivers

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Keelan Cole50.4730.84.50000.898.48
A late-season waiver-wire gem, Cole delivered several big fantasy performances down the stretch last year. From Weeks 13 to 16, Cole had either 100-plus yards and/or a touchdown in all four games with a total of 19 catches for 442 yards (23.26 Y/R) and three touchdowns during that span. With the season-ending injury to Marqise Lee, Cole should be the team's most-productive fantasy wide receiver.
Donte Moncrief45.2569.55.40000.288.95
Still only 25 years old, Moncrief received a one-year, $9.6 million deal from the Jaguars in free agency. Limited due to injuries (11 missed games over the past two seasons), Moncrief has an impressive combination of size and athleticism.
Dede Westbrook46.6596.53.70000.181.65
As a rookie, Westbrook had 27 catches for 339 yards and a touchdown over seven games. There should be an opportunity for him to improve last year's numbers on a per-game basis in his second season.
Rashad Greene13.8117.30.60000.214.93
D.J. Chark4.988.20.41600.311.22
Jaydon Mickens1.2150.10001.22.7
Alan Lazard0.33.400000.10.14

Tight Ends

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDFLPoints
Austin Seferian-Jenkins49.950450000.180.2
Seferian-Jenkins had 50 catches for 357 yards and three touchdowns for the Jets and signed with the Jaguars in free agency. Especially with the injury to Marqise Lee, ASJ has is worth a look as a streaming TE2.
Niles Paul14.8165.80.9000021.98
James O'Shaughnessy7.980.60.6000011.66
