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 Bortles518.4317.8373222.31354.43212.23.4250.98
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 Fournette331.51408.910.333.2262.310.5233.92
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 run-first offensive philosophy, the workhorse back has a chance to lead the NFL in carries if he can stay healthy for a full season.
T.J. Yeldon77.73381.639.1283.50.80.974.75
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 competition for non-Fournette opportunities.
Corey Grant46.6237.
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.
Tommy Bohanon4.
Brandon Wilds1.65.6000000.56

Wide Receivers


Marqise Lee54.7700.23.62.619.500.293.17
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 Moncrief39.4496.44.70000.277.44
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 and should start opposite Marqise Lee.
Dede Westbrook32.3410.22.40000.155.22
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 Cole32.8475.630000.863.96
A late-season waiver-wire pickup in 2017, 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.
D.J. Chark3.5630.31600.38.1
Rashad Greene5.748.50.30000.26.25
Jaydon Mickens2.632.50.20001.25.05
Alan Lazard111.20.10000.11.52

Tight Ends


Austin Seferian-Jenkins46.4468.64.60000.174.26
Seferian-Jenkins had 50 catches for 357 yards and three touchdowns for the Jets and signed with the Jaguars in free agency. ASJ has developed early chemistry with Bortles and is worth a look as a streaming TE2.
Niles Paul10.1113.10.6000014.91
James O'Shaughnessy4.8490.400007.3
Ben Koyack3.931.80.300004.98
