NFL offseason wish list: Jacksonville Jaguars

Jaguars contemplate life after football?

Welcome to our fantasy football wish lists where we’re going through each NFL team and listing three things we’d love to see them do this offseason for fantasy reasons (but also real football reasons).

It’s hard to believe that a mere 6 months ago some of the finest minds in football managed to convince themselves that the Jaguars were, in fact, good at football. 2018 saw a return to normalcy, though, with Jacksonville reclaiming their rightful spot as court jester in the AFC South. Since we’re writing one of these little things for every team in the league, here are 3 things “we” would like to see from the Jags this offseason.

I… DECLARE… BANKRUPTCY!

In a league with an ever-expanding salary cap, a league notorious for ownership-friendly contract structures, the Jacksonville Jaguars have run out of money. The Jags are the only team in football heading in to this offseason with negative available cap space. The first thing we’d like to see in Jacksonville is a little Dave-Ramsey style fiscal responsibility!

Teddy saves Florida… again?

Historian Douglas Brinkley declares Theodore Roosevelt “the savior of Florida”, of course referencing Teddy’s establishment of broad swaths of nature preserves throughout the Sunshine state. Florida may once again call on Teddy, Bridgewater this time, to preserve a little hope for Jaguars fans.

Intentional grounding

Even if the Jaguars can upgrade at Quarterback, I’d love to see Leonard Fournette get 400 touches this year. Fournette is absolutely brutal as a runner. A man that big just shouldn’t be able to do the things he does. For fantasy, Fournette should end up as a nice value when the casual fantasy fan uses last year’s numbers (Fournette finished as RB37 in ESPN scoring) to make this year’s draft cheat-sheet.
