2018 Fantasy Football Projections: Jacksonville Jaguars

In addition to viewing our 2018 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2018 fantasy football projections for the Jacksonville Jaguars.



Blake Bortles509.4311.8361721.61355.1325.12.23.5243.79
In an ideal world (according to Doug Marrone), Bortles may not throw a single pass all season. In Marrone's first full season as head coach, however, the Jags were 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


Leonard Fournette338.61371.310.234.6273.310.5230.66
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. With the league's best defense and a (historically) mistake-prone quarterback, the former fourth-overall selection has a chance to lead the NFL in carries if he can stay healthy for a full season.
T.J. Yeldon86.6376.71.742.23060.80.981.47
Better in PPR formats, Yeldon had four-plus catches in four of his 10 games played. With good health, he has a chance to provide RB3 value in PPR formats.
Corey Grant34.1167.11.43.632.40.20.827.95
Tommy Bohanon4.
Brandon Wilds1.65.6000000.56

Wide Receivers


Marqise Lee53.8688.63.52.619.500.291.41
Re-signed to a four-year deal, Lee enters the season as the team's top returning wideout. Over an eight-game stretch from Weeks 6 to 14 before getting hurt in Week 15, Lee averaged 5.13 catches for 61.75 yards on 8.25 targets per game with three touchdowns over that span.
Donte Moncrief29.1366.73.50000.257.27
Still only 24 years old (turns 25 in August), 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 Westbrook33.2421.62.50000.156.96
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.
Keelan Cole25.5369.82.30000.849.18
A late-season waiver-wire pickup in 2017, Cole delivered several big fantasy performances down the stretch last year. In four games 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.
D.J. Chark10.4187.
Rashad Greene8.269.70.40000.28.97
Jaydon Mickens4.252.50.40001.28.25
Alan Lazard3.134.70.40000.15.67

Tight Ends


Austin Seferian-Jenkins44444.43.50000.165.24
Seferian-Jenkins had 50 catches for 357 yards and three touchdowns for the Jets and signed with the Jaguars in free agency. ASJ is worth a look as a streaming TE2.
Niles Paul11.6129.90.7000017.19
James O'Shaughnessy4.747.90.400007.19
Ben Koyack3.8310.300004.9
