PYRO Fantasy Depth Chart

The PYRO Fantasy Football Depth Chart is a rundown of where Team PYRO projects the fantasy production for each team at each position. It is NOT an attempt to inform you of the current starters for each team. For example, we are well aware that Brandon Manumaleuna is currently the starting TE for the Chicago Bears, but if you look at the Bears Team Page, we have Greg Olsen listed at TE. Why? We’re projecting that Greg Olsen will be the most Fantasy Football relevant TE for the Bears this season. Since Olsen will be the Bears leading FF point scorer at TE, it’s his name at the top of the TE column on our PYRO Fantasy Depth Chart.

1996 Jacksonville Jaguars

Entering the 1996 season the Jaguars were only one year removed from being a expansion team, and ending their first season with only four wins. The 1997 season didn't start out much better. After nine weeks into the season, they had only three wins, and after splitting the next two weeks, it looked like they were going to head back home at the conclusion of the regular season. But, something strange occurred.

Jacksonville went on a five game winning streak, and in their last game of the season, needing a victory to get into the playoffs, Morten Andersen of the Falcons missed the game winning field goal to put Jacksonville in the postseason. Jacksonville Jaguars entered the playoffs as a wild card team. In the opening round they faced the fourth seeded Buffalo Bills, in Buffalo. Even though this was a close game, the Jaguars came on top with a 30-27 victory. This set up a match-up with the Denver Broncos. The Broncos were the number one seed, losing just three games on the season. Very few gave the Jaguars an even small chance of victory over the best team in football, who were favored by 14 points.

As predicted, the Broncos were dominating in the first quarter. They scored two touchdowns while disallowing the Jags from getting a first down. Vaughn Hebron scored the first touchdown on a one yard gain. On the Denver's second possession they scored again. This time John Elway connected with Shannon Sharpe for a 18-yard touchdown pass. This gave the Broncos a 12 point lead, due to one missed extra point that was blocked, and a failed two point conversion.

The second quarter, held redemption value for the Jaguars. They went on to score 13 points to take a one point lead (13-12). Mike Hollis connected on two field goals, and Natrone Means had a 8 yard run for a touchdown.

The third quarter saw more defense from Jacksonville. Denver only had 37 total yards on 14 plays. The Jaguars added a touchdown, when Mark Brunell hit Keenan McCardell for a 31 touchdown pass, taking a 20-12 lead into the fourth quarter.

The fourth quarter, Hollis put up another field goal, a 22 yarder, to increase their lead 23-12, with 11 minutes remaining in the game. The Broncos fought back with a touchdown of their own, as Terrelle Davis scored on a 2-yard touchdown. Denver went again for the two-point conversion and this time they were successful, shrinking the lead to 23-20. The Jaguars on their next possession drove down the field, and with just 3:39 remaining Brunell hit Jimmy Smith with a 16-yard touchdown pass, making the score 30-20. Elway led Denver down the field again, this time hitting Ed McCaffrey for a 15-yard touchdown pass with 1:50 left. Due to no timeouts remaining, and the Broncos unable to recover the onside kick, Jacksonville went on to upset the Denver Broncos 30-27.

This was probably the best performance of Marc Brunell's career. He threw for 245 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. He also rushed for 44 yards. Natrone Means was also a key componet. He rushed for 140 yards and a touchdown, while catching 7 passes for 24 yards. This was a crushing blow for the Broncos as they were good enough, and believed they were Super Bowl bound. "I'm just going to go home, sit on my couch and probably cry," Denver tight end Shannon Sharpe said afterward.

Even though the Jaguars lost the following week to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship, the victory over the Broncos will be something that the fans and team will always feel as a great accomplishment.

Spread The Fire

Jaguars Continue to Load Up On WR

Pyro's take: Dede Westbrook goes to Jacksonville as an early 4th round selection.

Fantasy Goo: Westbrook will have to fight off the likes of Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marquise Lee to have fantasy value in year 1.

Jaguars Follow Cowboys Lead

Pyro's take: Tom Coughlin's first order of business is to bring in a workhorse RB to take some pressure off Blake Bortles. Like Ezekiel Elliot last year, Fournette goes with the 4th pick. His angry running style should enhance the value of everyone else on that offense.

Fantasy Goo: Fournette has the raw abilities to finish the year as the RB1 overall. His ankle injury history is worrisome though, as he has dealt with lingering injuries through college. He should be a borderline RB1 when healthy.
P.S. He gets to face the Colts twice a year, just sayin.

Orange Julius Coming Soon In Miami

Pyro's take: Julius Thomas is projected to be traded to the Dolphins for a 2017 round 7 pick. Pending a physical he will be a Fin in '17.

Fantasy Goo: Julius Thomas produced 24 touchdowns in 27 games under Adam Gase. Don't expect numbers to be this consistent, but Thomas has shown the ability to produce multiple TD games and can win you a couple weeks. Also, he is a great option in MFL10 or other best ball leagues.

With No Ivory, That Leaves Shoelace and Grant

Pyro's take: Grant could be the sneakiest DFS play.

Fantasy Goo: The Jags face the colts who are just middle of the road when you adjust for fantasy schedule. Grant should get the goal-line work.

Jags Down Three Offensive Weapons for week 14 - 2016

Pyro's take: As if playing the Vikings with the lowest expected over/under of the week was not tough enough (just ask the Fabulous Thunderbirds), but now the Jags will be without three key starters.

Fantasy Goo: Without JT, Hurns, and Robinson, three key players, in any other situation, I would look to get some shares of the remaining players. But Bortles leads the league in INTs, nobody is scared of their ground game, and the Vikings are just too difficult to play against. Make other arrangements if needed.

Tough Marchup for Struggling Jags

Pyro's take: After a magical 2015 season these Jags WR's have not lived up to their potential in 2016. This week they will line up across from a Vikings defense missing Harrison Smith. However, the three corners are all within Pro football Focus's Top 41.

Fantasy Goo: Hurns and Robinson should continue to be avoided at all costs with this tough matchup.

No Ivory For Jags

Pyro's take: Chris Ivory has been ruled out for Week 13 vs Denver.

Fantasy Goo: As the punishing running back the Jags will need to look for more air yards. TJ Yeldon is still questionable for this week. Yeldon is a low end RB2/flex play against the strong Denver D.

Yeldon Surprise Start

Pyro's take: After dealing with an ankle all week Yeldon will be active.

Fantasy Goo: This decreases Ivory's stand alone value. Continue to stay away from the Jags backfield unless you like a little garbage time fun.

Orange Julius to Sit Out Week 12

Pyro's take: It's official, Julius Thomas is indeed out this week against the Bills.

Fantasy Goo: While there are plenty of TEs in the proverbial sea, I think this also adds to the allure of Marqise Lee. In 5 of his 6 games since their bye, he has eclipsed 50 yards. In the last five weeks, Buffalo has given up 6 WR TDs and allowed the 4th most FF Points to opposing QBs. Lee is likely available on waivers. He is strictly a matchup play, at least at this point.

Hurns Remains In Concussion Protocol

Pyro's take: Allen Hurns remains limited in practices, his status for Sunday is unclear. Go out and grab Julius Thomas, if Hurns is out Thomas and Marquise Lee should see an increase in targets. Houston is a solid D, 3rd vs opposing WRs and 7th vs TEs, but the Jags should be in garbage time again this week so expect a lot of passing.

Robinson to Get Right in Week 9

Pyro's take: Robinson is 4th in air yards in last 3 weeks. In Week #9 he will face Chiefs.

Fantasy Goo: The Chiefs have a long list of WR1s that have had their number this year. They have given up the 5th most FF Points to the position.

Jaguars TNF Injuries

Pyro's take: Jaguars:


Julius Thomas, TE, is the only fantasy relevant player with injury concerns for the Jags tonight with an ankle injury. He probably will play tonight, logging limited action at practice on Wednesday, but is having a tough 2016 to date.

Lee seeing more targets

Pyro's take: Waiver Wire after Week 6: Lee is not going to wow you, but he keeps being active for the Jags and caught six passes for 61 yards this week. He is worth grabbing if you own ARob as insurance with upside.

Ivory should have stayed at the hospital

Running back Chris Ivory made his Jaguars debut but was mostly ineffective. “There’s not much to say about it," Ivory said.

Pyro's take: Running back Chris Ivory made his Jaguars debut but was mostly ineffective. “There’s not much to say about it," Ivory said. "When you go out there, you expect to win, but it didn’t go that way.

Fantasy Goo: After sitting out due to a “Mystery illness” Chris Ivory returned to share the field with the non-exciting T.J. Yeldon. Instead of lifting the running game up, Ivory was a bummer. I would stay away from either of these two gentleman for a couple weeks or at least until one of them can rack up close to 100 combined yards in a game. Do not get fooled by a simple goal line touchdown. You want to see real production first.

Robinson can score

Allen Robinson now has four career games with multiple touchdowns.

Pyro's take: Allen Robinson now has four career games with multiple touchdowns.

Ivory Will Make His season Debut in Week 3


Pyro's take: Ivory practiced in full Thursday and Friday. He will start for Week 3.

Fantasy Goo: I am selling now on Yeldon. although I would be wary of starting Ivory this week, going forward, I think he outshines Yeldon. Ivory is a beast in the red zone and that is precisely why they went out and grabbed him.

Ivory Out for Week #2 - Yeldon a Better Play this Week


Pyro's take: Chris Ivory has been ruled out for Week 2.

Fantasy Goo: Yeldon is a much better play this week as the Chargers gave up the 3rd most FF Points in PPR last week.

Ivory a Mystery for Week 2

@TomPelissero Update: #Jaguars RB Chris Ivory has been released from hospital, doing well

Pyro's take: @TomPelissero Update: #Jaguars RB Chris Ivory has been released from hospital, doing well. No timetable set for return. Status still in question for Sun.

Fantasy Goo: T.J. Yeldon had 25 touches for 69 combined yards and an end zone celebration. Yeldon did not play spectacularly week 1 but, with the Chargers weak defense coming up for week 2, Yeldon would be a great play. The Chargers just gave up 199 rush/rec yards to Spencer Ware. Yeldon could be a bargain DFS play this week if Ivory sits out week 2. There is no word on Ivory's health concern so for now we will just call it a massive jock-itch issue.

Ivory Out for Week #1


Pyro's take: Ivory was admitted to a hospital. At this point, we are not sure if it is related to his calf. Ivory was a big question mark all week, this is not a huge shock.

Fantasy Goo: Yeldon gets a huge bump up. He will be the focal point for the Jaguars. This is going to be a high scoring affair, however the game script could call for a lot of passing as Bortles will need to sling it to keep up with the Packers. Remember, they brought in Ivory because of Yeldon’s struggles in the red zone. TJ Yeldon was ranked 35 and Ivory was 21. With the news, I could see Yeldon in the mid 20s. Again, the Jags will need to pass, and Yeldon was never a go to guy in the red zone, thus capping him for me around 28 or so.

Ivory Questionable for Week #1


Pyro's take: The Chris Ivory is listed as Questionable. He was limited in practice Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. This is one to monitor.

Fantasy Goo: IF he does go, as coach Bradley seems to indicate, I would not have concerns over his calf. But, if he is held out, then Yeldon would turn into a bargain on the DFS sites.
