Jacksonville Jaguars Roster 2020 Jacksonville Jaguars Roster

0-0, T-1st AFC South

vs IND

5:00 pm GMT, 9/13

After a successful 2017 season that saw them going all the way to the AFC Championship Game, the Jacksonville Jaguars fell apart last year. Their defense once again ranked near the top of the league at #4 but their offense was exposed. Blake Bortles was finally seen as the bust many had been speculating the offense finished the year second to last. The loss of Leonard Fournette took them a step back and the team lacked a receiver with over 750 receiving yards. This year, look for a healthy Fournette and the receiving core to step up after a subpar 2018. Not to mention, Nick Foles will take over as the starting quarterback as the team finally cut ties with Bortles.

Top 3 Jaguars Roster Questions of 2019-2020

Can Leonard Fournette return from injury and how much can he help the team?

After an injury plagued season that saw him only play two games, how will leonard Fournette fare in his third year in the league? The rookie sensation was terrific in his first NFL season, rushing for 1,040 yards and 9 TDs. Many expected his sophomore season to be better but instead, he suffered the ill-fated sophomore slump. Last year, he only ran for 439 yards and 5 TDs in only 8 games.

If Fournette can stay healthy for the duration of the season, look for big things from the third year back. He’s got the potential to be one of the best in the game and could easily be a top 5 RB by season’s end. In the past, defenses could cater their schemes into stopping him by stacking the box. However, with the change in quarterback, teams will now have to play further back in order to prevent Nick Foles from beating them through the air. If Fournette’s able to play a full 16 game season, he could easily be a 1,300 yard rusher with 10+ TDs. 

Will the Jaguars defense continue to be one of the best?

After having one of the best defenses over the past several years, Jacksonville will look to do the same this year. During the draft, the implemented a rich gets richer strategy and drafted Josh Allen, not to be mistaken with the Buffalo Bills quarterback with the same name, with the 7th overall pick in this past draft. While many projected Allen could go anywhere from 3-6, he instead fell to the Bills at 7 and will immediately give them another great pass rusher. Whether you want him to pressure the quarterback, stop running backs, or drop back in coverage, he can do it all. 

Jacksonville’s front four should be a force to be reckoned with. Allen will join the defensive end unit with Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue who are both widely talented in their own right. Up the middle, the Jaguars feature Marcell Dareus and Abry Jones who will be a great presence in the running game. The five of them should form a very solid core that will once again make the Jaguars one of the best defenses in the league. 

Is Nick Foles finally the answer?

Blake Bortles struggled as a quarterback for the majority of his career and was likely seen as a stopgap until they found their franchise starter. Enter Nick Foles, formerly known as the Eagles’ savior over the past two years. While he’s not the young QB fresh out of the draft, he’s instead a Super Bowl hero who looks ready to step back into the spotlight. Expectations will certainly be high with Foles set to receive $88 million over the next four years. 

Foles will immediately bring in a winning culture after winning the Super Bowl just two years ago. While he isn’t an elite option or franchise quarterback, he’ll make a great signal caller for the win now Jaguars. In just five games in 2018, Foles threw for 1,413 yards and 7 TDs. In a full season as a starter, I’d easily project him for a 3,500 passing yard season with 24 TDs. He’s an instant upgrade over Bortles and will look to find success as the opening day starter after serving as Carson Wentz’s backup the past few years.
