Jacksonville Jaguars DE Andre Branch (groin) and LB Khairi Fortt (hamstring) have been ruled out for Week 16. DE Ryan Davis (knee), FS Josh Evans (foot), DT Roy Miller (knee) and WR Tommy Streeter (abdomen) are listed as questionable, while WR Marqise Lee (elbow) and DE Chris Clemons (knee) are listed as probable.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Bortles has a chance to play in Week 16, but owners will have to check the inactive list. Bortles has a favorable matchup against the Tennessee Titans and only costs $3,800 on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find a better option.

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson (foot) has a partially torn ligament in his foot, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Recovery time is six to eight weeks, but he should be ready for offseason work.
Fantasy Tip: Robinson showed flashes in his rookie season and will be a RB2 or RB3 option in next year's drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Lee ($3,300) is a boom-or-bust fantasy option at FantasyScore. A nice matchup against the Tennessee Titans should make you a bit more comfortable in taking the leap, though, especially if Blake Bortles (foot) plays.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (foot) was jogging, throwing and moving around well while being limited at practice Tuesday, Dec. 16. He showed no signs of being limited by a right mid-foot sprain during the walkthrough session, and head coach Gus Bradley is cautiously optimistic that Bortles will be able to play in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans Thursday, Dec. 18. "I felt good," Bortles said. "It's still sore a little bit. But, I thought I was able to do some stuff and move around. I thought it would've been hard to stand around in a walking boot for another day. … I have a couple more days to get as ready as possible, but I definitely plan on playing."
Fantasy Tip: It's looking increasingly likely that Bortles will suit up for the game against the Titans on a short week. If he is indeed not showing many limitations from his injury, starting him at FantasyScore at $3,800 could pay off handsomely as a sleeper option.

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Andre Branch (groin), LB Khairi Fortt (hamstring) and DT Roy Miller (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 16. DE Ryan Davis (hip), S Josh Evans (foot) and WR Tommy Streeter (abdomen) were limited, while DE Chris Clemons (knee) practiced in full.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (foot) is expected to play in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans Thursday, Dec. 18, according to offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch. Even though Bortles didn't practice Monday, Dec. 15, Fisch is preparing as though Bortles will start Thursday. "As far as I know, it's going to be Blake," Fisch said. The Jaguars will play it by ear and see how much Bortles does in practice these next few days.
Fantasy Tip: It's good news for Bortles, but coming off an injury on a short week usually doesn't spell fantasy football success, especially for a rookie. Even with a great matchup against the Tennessee Titans, risking it with Bortles at FantasyScore doesn't seem like the greatest idea.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup is a good one, but it may be wise to look elsewhere this week. It is extremely risky to play Bortles on a short week with the injury issues he is dealing with. Chad Henne ($3,800; 7.6% of cap) would start if Bortles can't go, and is a nice sleeper option this week if he plays.

Fantasy Tip: Chad Henne ($3,800; 7.6% of your cap) would start if Bortles can't play. He has a good matchup against the Tennessee Titans, but he would be an unorthodox play on FantasyScore to load up elsewhere.
Tue, 16 Dec 2014 07:12:37 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Storm Johnson ($3,000; 6.0% of your cap) will get an extended look against a poor Tennessee Titans run defense. He's an excellent buy-low flyer this week on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Lee's new injury doesn't appear to be very serious, so we expect him to suit up Thursday night versus the Tennessee Titans. Lee had just four catches (nine targets) for 14 yards in Week 15. He's an intriguing talent, but until we see more, he's too risky of a start at FantasyScore, even with a promising matchup this week.
Mon, 15 Dec 2014 17:01:37 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Bortles is dealing with a mid foot sprain, so it's highly unlikely he'll play on a short week against the Tennessee Titans. Chad Henne would likely start in Bortles' absence, and Henne could be a fine sleeper selection at FantasyScore.
