Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence has "impressed the (coaching) staff with the way he has embraced (head coach) Doug Pederson's culture and offensive system" and "looked the part in each phase of the offseason," according to SI.com's John Shipley "I think he's done an outstanding job of number one, learning the system and buying into the way that we want to run and we want our quarterback to play in the system. ... The last couple of days through the OTAs, you see some of the checks that he's made the line of scrimmage. He's making quicker decisions now," quarterbacks coach Mike McCoy told Shipley.
Huddle Up: Lawrence had the misfortune of being dragged down with the sinking Urban Meyer ship last season, as he had to deal with a COVID offseason as well as losing snaps during a quarterback "competition" to Gardner Minshew in training camp. Pederson's presence and an upgraded supporting cast should allow Lawrence to flourish in Year 2. He should be viewed as a savvy QB2 option in fantasy drafts this summer with low-end QB1 upside.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Jamal Agnew (hip) believes he is "right on track" in his recovery from the season-ending hip injury he suffered in Week 11 last season.
Huddle Up: Agnew was starting to emerge as a low-end fantasy starter before the injury and was one of the few bright spots for an otherwise pathetic Jacksonville offense. He will have a much harder time repeating the feat in 2022 after the Jaguars added Christian Kirk and Evan Engram in free agency. Marvin Jones will start opposite Kirk and Travis Etienne is returning from injury, meaning Agnew probably needs multiple injuries to at least two of the aforementioned players before he has a shot at fantasy relevancy in 2022.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. looks faster, according to QB Trevor Lawrence. "He looks a lot faster," Lawrence said. "He's just going to be that guy when you get the ball in his hands, he's going to make the play. I think he's made as big improvement since last season and he's really been attacking it. I think it's showing on the practice field."
Huddle Up: Shenault is in his age-24 season and is coming off 58-600-5 and 63-619-0 lines. This could be the year he takes the next step and approaches 1,000 yards. He'll be a WR4/WR5 with WR3 aspirations in fantasy.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson (Achilles) is "not likely" to be ready for training camp, John Reid of the Florida Times-Union reported on Friday, June 17. "Etienne returning to full speed has a special significance considering starting running back James Robinson continues to rehab from a torn Achilles' tendon and is not likely to be ready for next month's training camp," Reid wrote.
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Robinson will be ready by the time the regular season rolls around, but that will be determined by how quickly he gets involved in training camp. If Robinson isn't ready for the start of 2022, that would be a significant boost for Travis Etienne, who could cement himself as a low-end RB1 in Robinson's absence.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson (Achilles) refused to give a timetable for his return to the field from a torn Achilles' tendon suffered in 2021. "When I'm ready, I'll be ready. You guys know," he said on Wednesday, June 15. Head coach Doug Pederson has previously stated Robinson could be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Robinson has been the lead dog in Jacksonville's backfield the past two seasons but may not be himself in his first season back from such a serious injury, and he's expected to cede at least some work to Travis Etienne, who is also coming back from injury. Until we see how this situation shakes out, Robinson is an RB3 with upside.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. is in attendance for voluntary workouts on Monday, June 13. The Jags were scheduled to have mandatory minicamp this week but head coach Doug Pederson cancelled it to reward veteran players and is instead opting for voluntary workouts.
Huddle Up: Shenault has struggled mightily with drops and has put together two lackluster seasons to start his career. With the addition of Christian Kirk, Shenault's already shaky value was further damaged. He isn't a viable fantasy option in 2022 until we see some better results.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne received high praise from offensive coordinator Press Taylor, who raved about Etienne's ability to grasp everything they're throwing at him. "We're throwing him in all different positions just to see what he's comfortable with, what he needs to work on as we move forward, give him plans moving further into summer coming back for training camp. But he's been really receptive to everything. He's shown an ability to grasp a lot of different things and show that he's capable of doing things," Taylor said.
Huddle Up: Etienne will be a polarizing player in fantasy. The upside is clearly there given his skillset, and the draft capital (albeit from a different regime) should give the Clemson product plenty of opportunities. However, the Lisfranc injury is no joke. Etienne should be valued as an RB2 with breakout potential if he stays healthy.
Posted 6/04/2022 3:06 am GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson (Achilles) has resumed running on the field as he continues his rehab, according to his representation.
Huddle Up: Robinson has been the focal point of the Jacksonville running game in his two seasons in the league, but his injury and the return of Travis Etienne could lead to a decline in production in 2022. Assuming he is ready for the start of the season, Robinson should be viewed as a RB3 or flex option.
Posted 6/02/2022 2:41 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. has at least three wide receivers ahead of him in the pecking order, and he has been returning punts.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs were looking at him earlier in the offseason, and a change of scenery may be the best chance for him to shine right now. He's a WR5 flyer in this situation.
Posted 6/02/2022 2:34 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) looked like his old self in pass-catching drills this week, according to SI.com's John Shipley. His explosion and ability to quickly cut and make breaks stood out during pass-catching drills. He ran one drag route and extended for a catch from QB Trevor Lawrence that showed he still has the best pure speed and home-run ability before and after the catch of any player on the offense.
Huddle Up: Etienne will have some risk and significant upside as an RB2 in fantasy.
Posted 6/02/2022 2:34 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence looks more confident and decisive when delivering the ball, especially in tight windows.
Huddle Up: Lawrence has great arm talent, but he didn't have a lot to work with last year. We should see some improvement, but he'll still be a QB2 option in fantasy.
Posted 6/01/2022 6:52 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne is open to having a role similar to the one San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel had in 2021. "Football is all about matchups, so I mean if I could be like Deebo Samuel, I would love that," Etienne stated.
Huddle Up: So would fantasy owners who have or will have stock in Etienne, who is slated to lead the Jaguars' backfield in the event James Robinson (Achilles) isn't ready for the season. If things play out that way, Etienne will enter 2022 as an RB2 with major upside, especially if he sees a Deebo-like RB/WR role in his second season..
Posted 5/31/2022 2:54 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Christian Kirk has been fielding punts in organized team activities.
Huddle Up: This added responsibility probably wouldn't add much fantasy value to him. Kirk had peaks and valleys with the Arizona Cardinals, and he'll be a WR3 in fantasy. If he can handle being a top target on the team, he could blossom into a fantasy WR2.
Posted 5/26/2022 2:23 am GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Evan Engram's 23 drops over the last five seasons are the most among tight ends in that span.
Huddle Up: Despite his issues with drops and a worrisome injury history, Engram brings legitimate upside as an athletic playmaker at a position that head coach Doug Pederson loved to utilize during his tenure with the Philadelphia Eagles. It isn't out of the question that Engram becomes a favorite target of Trevor Lawrence and finishes as a TE1.
Posted 5/25/2022 2:05 am GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Christian Kirk and QB Trevor Lawrence have developed a good relationship early on, Lawrence recently stated. "[Kirk is] really talented and we get along really well. Like I said, [we have] similar personalities and demeanors," Lawrence said. "He's great. Just from a football IQ sense, I think he's really quarterback friendly."
Huddle Up: Getting on the same page with Lawrence is huge for Kirk's 2022 prospects, but until we see this budding relationship produce targets and results for Kirk, he's a WR3.
Posted 5/23/2022 5:31 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) has been cleared to be a full-go for all practice activity as the team begins its offseason program, according to head coach Doug Pederson on Monday, May 23.
Huddle Up: Etienne's health takes on added importance this summer and (potentially) fall with James Robinson recovering from a late-season Achilles tear. Last year's No. 25 overall pick was drafted to be an offensive weapon during the ill-fated Urban Meyer era, but he is shaping up to be Jacksonville's featured runner - at least for the early part of the 2022 season - as he appears to be fully recovered from a Lisfranc injury. He could be a huge steal if his current fifth-round ADP somehow holds this summer.

Jacksonville Jaguars No. 1 overall pick DE Travon Walker is extensively working at outside linebacker in minicamps. "Just strictly working on outside linebacker things in practice I feel like I'm truly getting more comfortable with the position," Walker said. "There's always room for improvement. At Georgia we ran a lot of techniques, but once I got here, [I had to] break down a lot of those techniques that I learned at Georgia, and focus on that one thing. I (dropped into coverage) at Georgia, so I'm kind of used to it. But now, I'm working on it a lot more getting into seven-on-seven, so I'll get a lot more comfortable with dropping instead of just dropping every now and then."
Huddle Up: If Walker is added to your IDP pool as a LB, he'll probably be a low-end flex option. If he comes in as a DE, he'll be a DL1 candidate.
Posted 5/12/2022 2:45 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars No.1 overall pick DE Travon Walker agreed to a four-year, $37.4 million deal Thursday, May 12. The deal includes a $24.4 signing bonus and a fifth-year option.
Huddle Up: Walker will be a DL1 option in fantasy, but he has a big bust potential in his rookie season because he's still more a project.
Posted 4/18/2022 6:24 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Evan Engram will be utilized for his 'ability to create matchups' that stress opposing defenses, according to new offensive coordinator Press Taylor. 'When we put Evan Engram on the field, who's going to cover him? Do you need to bring in a lighter body? Do you put a nickel on him? Do you put a safety on him? Do you put a linebacker on him, which we would ask for if you had to pick? Evan kinda brings that with his speed overall,' Taylor said.
Huddle Up: Engram struggled with injuries throughout his time with the New York Giants, but the team's unwillingness to use him as a mismatch weapon as much as possible was perhaps a bigger reason why his time in The Big Apple was a disappointment overall. New head coach Doug Pederson was fond of relying on his tight ends in Philadelphia and figures to do the same in Jacksonville. Assuming he can stay healthy, Engram has a great shot at being a top 10 fantasy tight end in 2022.
Posted 4/13/2022 1:42 am GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence said he feels better prepared heading into his second NFL season. 'I feel great,' Lawrence said. 'My body feels good, and I've had some time to recover from last year - physically, mentally, just everything.'
Huddle Up: Lawrence suffered through a drama-filled rookie season, but Jacksonville made changes to the coaching staff and was aggressive in free agency this offseason. It is risky to expect Lawrence to be more than a midrange QB2 in 2022, but he remains a valuable asset in keeper formats.
Posted 4/12/2022 10:38 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) said he is about 85 percent to 90 percent recovered from his Lisfranc injury.
Huddle Up: Etienne should be ready for training camp and could also participate in some offseason workouts. There is a good chance that he will share playing time with James Robinson in 2022 and can be at least a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/29/2022 11:45 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB James Robinson (Achilles) is not expected to be back on the field until training camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Robinson is recovering from a torn Achilles tendon injury and may be limited early in the 2022 season. There is a decent chance that he will share snaps with Travis Etienne next season but could still be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy back.
Posted 3/29/2022 11:44 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Travis Etienne (foot) likely will return to the field at some point in April, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Etienne missed the entire 2021 season because of his foot injury, but it appears like he will be able to participate in most of the offseason workouts. He likely will share playing time with James Robinson in 2022 and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/24/2022 4:02 pm GMT
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. has received interest from the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: The third-year pro had 63 catches for 619 yards last season, which was a smidge better than his rookie year, but he didn't have a touchdown. If he winds up in KC, he would be an electric WR3 in fantasy.
Posted 3/15/2022 12:09 am GMT
Las Vegas Raiders impending free-agent WR Zay Jones plans to sign a three-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars worth as much as $30 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Jones has one of the better seasons of his career last season and should be a top-three receiver for the Jaguars. He could be a late round option in deeper leagues but will not be a starting fantasy option most weeks.
Posted 3/14/2022 9:47 pm GMT
New York Giants impending free-agent TE Evan Engram plans to sign a one-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars worth $9 million. The deal could be worth as much as $10 million with incentives.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars have not had much production out of their tight ends over the last few seasons, but Engram has played well at times during his career. He could be a possible low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
Posted 3/14/2022 7:19 pm GMT
Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Christian Kirk (Cardinals) reportedly agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth $72 million with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, March 14. According to reports, the deal could be worth as much as $84 million.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars were desperate to upgrade Trevor Lawrence's supporting cast and showed it with this offer. Kirk has age on his side (25 years old), but Jacksonville undoubtedly overpaid here for a receiver who was unable to crack 1,000 yards receiving yards in four years with the Arizona Cardinals. Furthermore, last season was the first time he managed to play in each of his team's games. There is a chance Kirk is still an ascending talent, but he hasn't shown nearly enough to justify a contract that makes him one of the most highly paid players at his position. He figures to slot in as a ho-hum WR3 in fantasy in 2022.
Posted 3/11/2022 3:44 am GMT
New York Giants impending free-agent TE Evan Engram is expected to be pursued by the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Engram has shown the ability to produce TE1 numbers, but he has been plagued by injuries in recent years. That being said, he'd be worth a look as an upside TE2 if he lands in Buffalo's offense.
Posted 3/09/2022 3:30 pm GMT
New York Giants impending free-agent TE Evan Engram has interest from other teams as a tight end and as a slot receiver. Teams feel he would be a matchup problem as a slot receiver, which adds to his value in free agency.
Huddle Up: Engram is supremely talented, but he has been dogged by injuries throughout his career. He'll be one to watch as an upside TE2 in fantasy.
