Jacksonville Jaguars first-round pick RB Travis Etienne agreed to terms on his rookie, four-year deal Monday, July 19. Financial terms weren't disclosed, but the deal includes a fifth-year option. The deal also includes no offset language.
Huddle Up: Etienne is an RB3 option in PPR that could boom or fizzle. Watch him in camp to get a better feel on his trajectory in the pros.

Jacksonville Jaguars No. 1 overall pick QB Trevor Lawrence signed his four-year, $36.8 million rookie deal that includes $24.1 million in guaranteed money Monday, July 5. All rookie, first-round deals include fifth-year options.
Huddle Up: Lawrence is a question mark that will have some luster to his name in fantasy drafts. However, the position is loaded that there is no need to reach for him. Peg him as a high-end QB2 with potential upside.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. caught three or more passes in every game he completed as a rookie, and quarterbacks compiled a cumulative rating of 119 on throws to Shenault.
Huddle Up: Shenault showed promise as a rookie despite a revolving door at quarterback. Enter No. 1 pick Trevor Lawrence and head coach Urban Meyer, who wasn't shy about using versatile receivers in college, and Shenault could see a jump in production in his sophomore season. He is a WR4 with upside.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew has outperformed QB C.J. Beathard this offseason by a considerable margin, according to SI.com's John Shipley.
Huddle Up: Despite Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer's refusal to name top draft pick Trevor Lawrence as the team's No. 1 quarterback, he appears to be the heavy favorite to be the Week 1 starter, leaving Minshew and Beathard to compete for the No. 2 job. At this point in the offseason, there doesn't appear to be much of a trade market for Minshew and while he would be one of the NFL's better backup QB options, he possesses minimal value for fantasy owners. Lawrence should be viewed as a QB2 in standard leagues for the time being, although he could be a starting option in daily fantasy games when he has a favorable matchup.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne will be used in multiple roles in order to create big plays for a Jacksonville offense that ranked last in the NFL with 16 plays of 20 yards or more in 2020.
Huddle Up: Head coach Urban Meyer has already made it clear that Etienne will be used as both a running back and a receiver, and while sharing touches with James Robinson will lead to inconsistent results, his big-play speed will make him a flex option with upside as a rookie.
Posted 6/21/2021 6:43 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. was consistently making plays during offseason workouts and showed growth as a receiver, according to ESPN.com's Michael DiRocco.
Huddle Up: Shenault probably will be used in the slot most of the time this season and could be used in short passing plays because of his playmaking abilities. Fantasy players could consider him a late round pick in drafts.
Posted 6/21/2021 12:59 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson is expected to be the top running back on the depth chart. Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell has shown a past tendency to give more of his offense's rushing focus to backs with skill sets similar Robinson in the past. Robinson is the best pass-blocker of the group and is functional as a receiver.
Huddle Up: Robinson will be challenged by first-round pick Travis Etienne, but he still figures to be a low-end RB2 option in fantasy.
Posted 6/16/2021 11:54 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence is expected to be the starting quarterback this season, but passing game coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said the team is not ready to name a starter at this point.
Huddle Up: Lawrence is the heavy favorite for the job and will be the starter Week 1 unless he suffers an injury. He can be a starting option against certain opponent but should be primarily a No. 2 quarterback in standard leagues at this point.
Posted 6/15/2021 5:08 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. is unlikely to be used as much on running plays in 2021, based on recent comments made by offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who told reporters Tuesday, June 15, that he wants Shenault to develop 'as a pure wide receiver this offseason.'
Huddle Up: Reports out of Jacksonville have been glowing this offseason regarding Shenault, so his transition seems to be going well so far. Nevertheless, his potential rushing contributions took a hit when the Jaguars spent a first-round pick on Travis Etienne. Jacksonville may have too crowded of a receiver room for Shenault to return WR3 value this season, but he boasts the talent and upside to get there.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence (hamstring) will be limited during minicamp this week because of his hamstring problem, according to head coach Urban Meyer. Lawrence did not participate in 11-on-11 drills Monday, June 14, but participated in the other drills.
Huddle Up: Lawrence should be a full participant once training camp starts and will be the Jaguars starter for the foreseeable future. He likely will struggle at times during his rookie season but can be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues and could even start against certain opponents.
Posted 6/12/2021 9:40 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. showed improved route running skills during offseason workouts and was able to catch all his targets during the workouts open to the media.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars added Marvin Jones this offseason, but Shenault should see plenty of targets as the slot receiver. He could be at least a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues if he can build a good connection with Trevor Lawrence.
Posted 5/29/2021 2:57 am GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence wasn't as sharp on throws in the red zone during OTAs, according to head coach Urban Meyer. 'The field changes especially against NFL talent all over the field,' said Meyer. 'The defense had the upper hand today.'
Huddle Up: Young quarterbacks tend to struggle in the red zone, and not even the No. 1 overall pick is immune. Lawrence isn't likely to be a weekly fantasy starter in his first season, but he has enough upside to be selected as a QB2 in redraft leagues.
Posted 5/28/2021 1:30 am GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence is 'not necessarily on a pitch count' during OTAs, according to head coach Urban Meyer.
Huddle Up: Although the surgery on his non-throwing shoulder was never expected to cause major issues, it is still comforting to hear that Lawrence is practicing without any limitations. The No. 1 overall pick should be under center in Week 1 and projects as a QB2 with upside.
Posted 5/15/2021 6:53 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne will take all of his rookie minicamp repetitions at wide receiver, Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer said Saturday, May 15. 'Worst-case scenario you have a running back that's elite with receiver skills,' Meyer said.
Huddle Up: Etienne caught 48 passes for 588 yards and a pair of TDs as a senior at Clemson and looks to at least have a rookie role as a pass-catcher to complement sophomore James Robinson. He's pushing for flex consideration in PPR leagues.
Posted 5/13/2021 10:51 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence (shoulder) will be a limited participant during the team's upcoming rookie minicamp.
Huddle Up: Lawrence should be ready for the start of training camp and will be the Week 1 starter as long as he is healthy. He can be a No. 2 quarterback in standard leagues and can also be a starting option in favorable matchups.
Posted 5/08/2021 3:36 am GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne has 'more juice' than RB James Robinson, according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com, and Brooks believes the 'RB1 job is Etienne's to lose' heading into the 2021 season.
Huddle Up: Head coach Urban Meyer hinted at Etienne beginning his career as more of a third-down back, but after spending a first-round pick on the Etienne, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Meyer turn him loose sooner rather than later. His floor is probably that of a flex play in PPR formats, but his ceiling is much higher.
Posted 5/02/2021 9:00 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne may initially be used as a third-down back but could also line up in the slot or as an outside receiver.
Huddle Up: Etienne will not see a majority of the work at running back but should see a handful of touches each game. He can be a possible flex option in point-per-reception leagues and can also be a No. 3 or No. 4 back in standard leagues.
Posted 4/30/2021 3:17 am GMT
Clemson RB Travis Etienne was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the 25th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Etienne joins his teammate, Trevor Lawrence, in what should be an improved Jacksonville offense. He will likely be in a committee of some form with James Robinson in 2021, but between his explosiveness and catching ability, Etienne should be at least be a flex option with upside.
Posted 4/30/2021 12:27 am GMT
Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Lawrence was one of the top quarterbacks in college football over the last few years and will be the Week 1 starter for the Jaguars. He will be a popular option in keeper leagues and could be a possible spot starter in standard leagues depending on the matchup.
Posted 4/29/2021 10:49 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars WR DJ Chark Jr. said he has added 10 pounds this offseason and that he is running faster with the added weight.
Huddle Up: Chark will be working with a new quarterback next season and should be a popular target in the passing game. He can be considered at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/27/2021 2:55 am GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson could 'take a step forward from where he was a year ago,' general manager Trent Baalke said.
Huddle Up: Robinson went from undrafted rookie to workhorse and 1,000-yard rusher for the Jaguars. Despite the addition of Carlos Hyde, Robinson should continue to lead the way for the Jacksonville rushing attack in 2021. The volume alone should give him a RB2 floor.
Posted 3/16/2021 9:13 pm GMT
Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Marvin Jones plans to sign a two-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars worth $14.5 million, according to a source. The deal will include $9.2 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Jones is coming off a terrific 2020 season and probably will start opposite DJ Chark next season. He should be a reliable target for Jaguars and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/15/2021 11:51 pm GMT
Impending free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Seahawks) reportedly agreed to terms on a two-year contract worth $6 million with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, March 15.
Huddle Up: Hyde is just the kind of player fantasy owners of James Robinson wanted to see the Jaguars sign: someone good enough to use as a handcuff, but not a high-end talent likely to steal a bunch of work from last year's surprise undrafted rookie free agent. Hyde will reunite with his former college coach at Ohio State in Urban Meyer, but his fantasy value figures to be about the same as it was last year behind Chris Carson - a handcuff capable of being a serviceable RB2 if Robinson gets hurt but an RB5 otherwise.
Posted 3/04/2021 10:02 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson received 86 percent of the carries for the Jaguars this season, which was the highest percentage in the NFL in 2020.
Huddle Up: Robinson had a terrific rookie season and should be the team's starting running back for years to come. He should be a first- or second-round pick in fantasy drafts next season and will be a weekly starting option for players.
Posted 2/19/2021 8:20 pm GMT
Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Marvin Jones said he would prefer to join a Super Bowl contender this offseason but has not ruled out any team.
Huddle Up: Jones is coming off a solid 2020 season and should receive interest from multiple teams during free agency. He can be a top-two or top-three receiver for a team and likely will be a starting fantasy option most weeks.
Posted 2/18/2021 2:38 am GMT
Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Marvin Jones has expressed interest in joining the Los Angeles Rams to reunite with QB Matthew Stafford, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Jones was a steady target for Stafford during their time in Detroit, but he would likely have a tough time approaching his previous numbers if he joined the receiving corps of the Rams.
Posted 2/08/2021 1:02 am GMT
Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones ranked fifth in the NFL in receptions and fourth in receiving yards over the final five games of the 2020 season.
Huddle Up: Jones has averaged between 56.4 and 68.8 yards per game in all five of his seasons in Detroit, finding the end zone at least nine times in three of them. He will be a free agent this offseason, but Jones can be a WR3 candidate in the right situation.
Posted 1/30/2021 3:40 am GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. ranked eighth in the NFL with 16 broken tackles after the catch in 2020, and he caught five or more passes in each of the final four games, logging three touchdowns and 33 targets in that span.
Huddle Up: His elusiveness after the catch and strong close to his rookie season are both encouraging, and with Urban Meyer now the coach and Trevor Lawrence likely to be under center, Shenault's numbers could climb higher in 2021. Consider him a WR4.
Posted 1/26/2021 2:56 am GMT
Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Marvin Jones could be an option for the Tennessee Titans if the Titans decide not to re-sign impending free-agent WR Corey Davis this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Turron Davenport.
Huddle Up: Jones is coming off a terrific season and should receive interest from multiple teams in free agency. He would be a starter if he signed with the Titans and can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver no matter where he signs.
Posted 1/22/2021 3:19 am GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson ranked sixth among running backs with 641 snaps played in 2020 despite missing the final two games with an ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Robinson came out of nowhere as an undrafted rookie to finish tied for fifth in the league in rushing. He also added 49 catches. If the Jaguars don't make any significant additions to their backfield ahead of next season, Robinson will be a low-end RB1 candidate.
