2019 Fantasy Football Projections: Jacksonville Jaguars

- Updated: Friday, July 5th


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Nick Foles517.3328.5364720.1710.8636.179.40.36214.94
Now on his fourth NFL club, Foles is a fringe QB2 in two-QB fantasy leagues, but his signing provides a boost for Jacksonville's skill-position players. During his five seasons with the Jags, no quarterback had thrown more interceptions (75) or pick-sixes (13) than Blake Bortles, who has completed just 59.3 of his career pass attempts. Cutting down the number of drive-killing turnovers should especially help Leonard Fournette and the team's run-first offense.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Leonard Fournette272.11061.29.5247.53991.54212.38
Durability (11 missed games in two seasons) and inefficiency (career 3.7 YPC) are negatives, but there are some reasons for optimism. A true workhorse, Fournette has averaged nearly 20 carries per game (19.09) when he's been active and the team should sustain more drives with improved quarterback play. Season-ending injuries sidelined Jacksonville's LT/LG/C for major chunks of the season, but running lanes should be wider with their return to health and the addition of road-grading RT Jawaan Taylor in this year's draft. Plus, Fournette could be more involved in the passing game as well.
Alfred Blue67.8244.11.0216.7120.20.2944.29
Fournette's injury history means there's a good chance that either Blue or rookie Ryquell Armstead could find themselves thrust into a starting role for a game or two and become one of the most coveted waiver-wire adds at some point during the season.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Dede Westbrook69.8802.75.244.524.80114.19
In a healthy sophomore campaign, Westbrook led the Jags with a 66/717/5 receiving line on 101 targets and added 98 rushing yards. Lacking quality quarterback play, Westbrook still managed to finish as a top-35 wide receiver in 2018. Given the upgrade at quarterback, Westbrook should outperform (his current ADP).
Marqise Lee57.37222.876.844.9093.91
Lee missed all of 2018 and it's possible that he won't be ready for the start of training camp. That said, his 2019 status for the opener doesn't appear to be in jeopardy. A potential slow start as he returns from his ACL tear combined with his lack of touchdowns (eight in 53 games) means he's not much more than a low-upside WR4 despite the upgrade at quarterback.
Chris Conley31.8362.52.5400051.49
D.J. Chark24.3328.11.2200040.13

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Josh Oliver23.8264.21.5500035.72
While rookie tight ends collectively tend to struggle, the Jags used a top-70 selection on Oliver, who has earned some praise from the coaching staff during offseason workouts. Given the lack of competition on the roster, Oliver appears to be the odds-on favorite to lead the position group in fantasy points, but he's a more useful fantasy asset in dynasty formats than 2019 re-draft leagues.
