| Chris Ivory, Hurns out, Julius Thomas doubtful -- Fri Dec 2 1:00 pm --|
Jaguars down multiple offensive pieces
|The team ruled out several key players for Sunday’s game against visiting Denver: receiver Allen Hurns, running back Chris Ivory, defensive end Jared Odrick and receiver Rashad Greene.

FF Today's Take: Hurns and Ivory are both dealing with hamstring injuries. Expect T.J. Yeldon (ankle) to play but he's likely to share reps with Denard Robinson. With Hurns and Thomas out, Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee should see the bulk of targets against the Broncos. Neither are recommended fantasy plays given the competition.
| Chris Ivory unlikely to play Week 13 -- Thu Dec 1 7:25 pm --|

FF Today's Take: Ivory has yet to practice since suffering the injury, so owners can figure to see plenty of T.J. Yeldon (ankle) if he continues to make progress. With that said, the smarter move is to bench all Jaguars this week, as the Denver defense should smother Jacksonville and its mistake-prone offense.
| Julius Thomas out, Yeldon questionable -- Fri Nov 25 11:45 am --|
Jaguars down two at tight end
|The Jaguars already knew they’d be without tight end Marcedes Lewis for Sunday’s game at Buffalo.
Now, they’re without Julius Thomas as well.
The Jaguars (2-8) announced the two-time Pro-Bowl tight end will miss Sunday’s game with the Bills (5-5) because of a back injury. (Florida Times Union)|
FF Today's Take: With Thomas and Lewis out, the Jaguars are down to Ben Koyack at the tight end position. He won't be a recommended fantasy option against the Bills. Yeldon is battling a sprained ankle and missed practice Wednesday and Thursday. If Yeldon, sits Denard Robinson would see increased playing time but Chris Ivory would remain the lead back.
| Chris Ivory ruled out for Week 2 -- Fri Sep 16 11:14 am --|
Yeldon expected to start
|Running back Chris Ivory also did not practice Friday and will miss his second consecutive game. Ivory was hospitalized with what the team calls a “general medical condition” several hours prior to the Packers game. Ivory was back at EverBank Field on Thursday and could return against Baltimore on Sept. 25. (Flordia Times Union)|
FF Today's Take: With Ivory out, T.J. Yeldon should once again see the majority of snaps at running back for Jacksonville. Yeldon saw 25 touches in Week 1 but was terribly inefficient in the run game (1.9 ypc). Yeldon is a solid RB2 against the Chargers who got torched by the Chiefs' running backs in Week 1.

Jags RB status still developing
|Adam Schefter (AAdamSchefter) on Twitter: "Jaguars' RB Chris Ivory remains hospitalized with what team is calling a "general medical issue." Team expects to know more in next 48 hours" (Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: This isn't great -- and he's still undergoing tests this afternoon. Hopefully Ivory is good to go and this isn't a serious health issue -- just a temporary football problem. For now, it means that T.J. Yeldon could pick up extra work and vault into RB1 territory for Week 2.
| RB Chris Ivory inactive -- Sun Sep 11 11:30 am --|
|Jaguars inactives: Chris Ivory, Allen, Johnson, Reed, Walters, Alualu and C. Smith. ... House starts at LCB. (Ryan O\'Halloran on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Ivory was dealing with a calf injury but is reportedly missing this game with an illness. T.J. Yeldon gets a slight value bump with Ivory out and should see the majority of the work in the Jags backfield against the Packers.
