NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars-Leonard Fournette Press Conference Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

You’re drafting Leonard Fournette too early in fantasy football -
You are drafting Leonard Fournette too early. It’s not entirely your fault. Everyone else is, too. After dominating at the college level for years, Fournette was taken fourth overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2017 NFL Draft, and the hype train picked up steam. There’s always a rookie bump right after the draft. But it’s now nearly July, fantasy draft season is on the horizon, and the rookie bump hasn’t stopped with Fournette.

What quarterback, past or present, does Blake Bortles remind you of? -
Do you project his future based solely on what he’s done in his first four years? Or can you look at comparable quarterbacks — those who have similar skill sets, strengths vs. weakness, and in-game tendencies — and use their successes and failures as a road map for how Bortles will do?

After another offseason of “winning” is 2017 any different for Jacksonville Jaguars? -
It seems that making various lists of "offseason winners" has become an annual tradition for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Unfortunately for Jacksonville, so has losing 11 or more games. For the fourth year in a row, the Jaguars did good work in free agency (DE Calais Campbell and CB A.J. Bouye are the top signings) and the draft (RB Leonard Fournette and OT Cam Robinson within the first 35 picks). That raises the level of optimism about the upcoming season. To find out if 2017 will be any different from the previous three, I turned to two of my fellow AFC South writers.
