Jaguars DT Malik Jackson believes his days in Jacksonville are numbered.

With rookie Taven Bryan snapping ahead of him the last couple weeks, Jackson can see the writing on the wall. "In my mind, if I’m third or fourth on the depth chart making $14.5 million to $15 million, I don’t see too much future for me in Jacksonville," Jackson said. "With my situation, I’m playing for 31 other teams potentially." Jackson has just one sack this season after eight last year, but he is still getting after the quarterback. Still only 29 (in January), Jackson will have a strong market if he becomes a free agent.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there is a "growing perception" around the league that Tom Coughlin will replace Doug Marrone as the Jaguars head coach in 2019.

Coughlin, a two-time Super Bowl winner with the Giants and the Jaguars' first-ever head coach, returned to Jacksonville in a front office role last year. The Jaguars were expected to be a contender this year after advancing to the AFC Championship in 2017 but they've regressed this year, falling to 4-9. Marrone has been unable to control the locker room and could be at risk of losing his job if things don't improve quickly. Despite his impressive resume with both the Jaguars and Giants, a return to the sidelines might be ambitious for Coughlin, who turned 72 in August.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Jaguars plan to move on from Blake Bortles this offseason.

This feels obvious, but it wasn't a given after a surprise Bortles extension in February. Jacksonville is expected to make Bortles a post June cut — spreading his $16.5 million dead money over the next two years. After leading the Jaguars to the AFC Championship, Bortles hit rock bottom this season, but he should resurface in a backup role. The Jaguars will start over at quarterback.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone expects LT Josh Wells (groin, IR) to return next week.

Wells was designated to return late last month. He's been practicing the last two weeks and should return in Week 15. Ereck Flowers has been starting at left tackle in place of Wells.
Dec 7 - 6:33 PM

Carlos Hyde didn't receive a single carry in the Jaguars' Week 14 loss to the Titans.

Hyde was targeted once, but he "picked up" negative three yards. With Fournette back, Hyde holds zero value.
Dec 7 - 12:39 AM

Donte Moncrief caught 5-of-10 targets for 47 yards in the Jaguars' Week 14 loss to the Titans.

Moncrief tied Westbrook for the team lead in targets, but Moncrief wasn't able to do much with them. The former-Colt dropped a long fourth quarter pass that could have extended the drive, but it just wasn't the Jaguars night. Cody Kessler and the Jaguars are unlikely to be playing catch up against the Redskins next week, so Moncrief will be a low-floor WR4.
Dec 7 - 12:36 AM

Keelan Cole caught 3-of-7 targets for 55 yards in the Jaguars' Week 14 loss to the Titans.

Cole's targets were elevated by game script, but Cole will likely return to seeing 1-4 targets next week against the Redskins when Kessler doesn't attempt 43 passes like he did on Thursday Night Football.
Dec 7 - 12:32 AM

Dede Westbrook caught 7-of-10 targets for 88 yards and one touchdown in the Jaguars' Week 14 loss to the Titans.

Westbrook was the only receiver who was able to take advantage of garbage time. With the game already out of reach, Westbrook made a sick catch in the back of the end zone to bring his season total to five. Although the stat line is nice, don't expect this to continue. The Jaguars certainly don't want Kessler attempting 43 passes like he did tonight moving forward, so Westbrook will be nothing more than a WR4 next week against the Redskins.
Dec 7 - 12:29 AM

T.J. Yeldon rushed once for seven yards and caught his lone target for 10 yards in the Jaguars' Week 14 loss to the Titans.

The Jaguars trailed for most of the game, but Yeldon was only targeted on one of Cody Kessler's 43 pass attempts showing how little value he has when Fournette is active. Yeldon is a pure handcuff at this point, especially with the Jaguars projected to play in a close game against the Redskins next week.
Dec 7 - 12:24 AM

Cody Kessler completed 25-of-43 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown in the Jaguars' Week 14 loss to the Titans.

If you watched this game, there's no way you would have thought Kessler threw for 240 yards, but that is the power of good old fashioned garbage time. The Titans were effective in bringing pressure, which put Kessler on his back and kept the Jaguars offense out of sync. Kessler will not be projected for 43 pass attempts next week when the Jaguars face fellow USC alum Mark Sanchez and the Washington Redskins. That's, of course, assuming that Blake Bortles doesn't take the starting job back.
Dec 7 - 12:17 AM

Leonard Fournette rushed 14 times for 36 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for five yards in the Jaguars' Week 14 loss to the Titans.

Fournette found zero running room and the Jaguars opted to not design many pass plays to their best playmaker while trailing multiple touchdowns. The Jaguars need to be staying close in games for Fournette to have ceiling games, and that should be the case next week against Mark Sanchez's Redskins. Fournette should return to 20+ touches as favorites to win that ballgame, so start Fournette as a workhorse RB1.
Dec 7 - 12:10 AM

Jaguars declared RB David Williams, WR D.J. Chark, S C.J. Reavis, CB Tre Herndon, S Barry Church, OL Josh Walker, and DT Abry Jones inactive for Week 14 against the Titans.

Chark was ruled out earlier this week and Williams doesn't have a spot with Leonard Fournette, T.J. Yeldon, and Carlos Hyde ahead of him on the depth chart.
Dec 6 - 6:58 PM

D.J. Chark (quad) is out for Week 14 against the Titans.

This will be his third straight absence. The second-round rookie has had a rough go of it this year, securing just 14-of-30 targets for 174 scoreless yards over 10 appearances. He's not even remotely relevant in redraft leagues.
Dec 5 - 5:59 PM

Jaguars reinstated RB Leonard Fournette from suspension.

They cut undrafted rookie DB Dee Delaney to make room. Fournette was banned from Week 13 for fighting the Bills in Week 12. Fournette will be all systems go as a workhorse RB1 entering Thursday night's date with Tennessee.
Dec 3 - 5:14 PM

D.J. Chark (quad) was held out of Jaguars practice on Monday.

The second-round pick hasn't played since Week 11. In Chark's absence, Keelan Cole was reinstalled into three-receiver sets but has made no box-score noise.
