Jacksonville Jaguars - 2015 Projections

Jacksonville Jaguars

Overall Outlook
The Jacksonville Jaguars have had a rough couple of years coming into 2015. They are just 9-39 over the last three seasons and have not had any identity on either side of the ball since Maurice Jones-Drew got hurt a few years back. Third year head coach Gus Bradley has his franchise QB in Blake Bortles, and some solid pieces around him in Allen Robinson, Julius Thomas, and rookie TJ Yeldon. For now, expect the Jaguars to be a losing football team, but they do have upside if they develop as they hope.

Offseason Moves
Key additions: RB Bernard Pierce, WR Bryan Walters, TE Julius Thomas, OT Jermey Parnell, OT Austin Pasztor, C Stefen Wisniewski, DT Jared Odrick, OLB Dan Skuta, CB Davon House, S Sergio Brown
Key losses: RB Jordan Todman, C Jacques McClendon, DT Red Bryant, OLB Geno Hayes, ILB J.T. Thomas, CB Alan Ball, S Sherrod Martin

Offensive Outlook
The Jacksonville offense was not good in 2014 and will go through some more growing pains in 2015. Quarterback Blake Bortles is back and figures to be handing off to new running back TJ Yeldon and throwing to 2nd year guys Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson.  The Jaguars schedule looks appealing, especially late in the year, so look for sleeper value out of the you Jacksonville offense.

Projections - 2015
QB1 - Blake Bortles - Passing - 3500 yds / 20 tds 
RB1 - TJ Yeldon - Rushing - 1000 yds / 8 tds  Receiving - 40 recs / 300 yds / 2 tds
RB2 - Denard Robinson - Rushing - 400 yds / 2 tds  Receiving - 15 recs / 200 yds / 0 tds
WR1 - Allen Robinson - Receiving - 80 recs / 950 yds / 6 tds
WR2 - Marqise Lee - Receiving - 60 recs / 700 yds / 3 tds
WR3 - Allen Hurns - Receiving - 35 recs / 400 yds / 1 td
TE1 - Marcedes Lewis - Receiving - 60 recs / 650 yds / 8 tds

Defensive Outlook
The Jaguars finished 2014 ranked 26th in both yards and points allowed. The team was able to sign Dan Skuta, Sergio Brown and Devon House to sure up some spots, but the Jaguars still have a long way to go. In IDP fantasy football, the Jaguars have some studs, including Paul PoslusznyJohnathan Cyprien, and Tevlin Smith,  all of whom should be high scorers at their respective position.

Projections - 2015
DE1 - Chris Clemons - 40 total Ts / 8 sacks / 3 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
DE2 - Ryan Davis - 35 total Ts / 6 sacks / 1 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
DT - Sen'Derrick Marks - 35 total Ts / 5 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
DT2 - Roy Miller - 30 total Ts / 1 sack / 0 passes defensed / 1 total TO
OLB1 - Telvin Smith -  110 total Ts / 2 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 5 total TOs
OLB2 - Dan Skuta - 40 total Ts / 2 sacks / 3 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
MLB - Paul Posluszny - 155 total Ts / 3 sacks / 8 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
CB1 - Dwayne Gratz - 60 total Ts / 0 sacks / 18 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
CB2 - Demetrius McCray - 55 total Ts / 0 sacks / 10 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
S1 - Johnathan Cyprien - 115 total Ts / 1 sack / 6 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
S2 - Sergio Brown - 60 total Ts / 0 sacks / 4 passes defensed / 1 total TO
