The Jacksonville Jaguars returned to practice on Thursday, and once again cornerback Jalen Ramsey is sidelined with a back injury, according to Jaguars reporter Demetrius Harvey. Ramsey sat out all last week with the back injury, and after a Friday questionable designation was inactive on Sunday vs. the Broncos.

Fantasy football analysis, Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey

Ramsey has one more practice to get back on the field. If he sits again, he’ll likely get the questionable tag one more time. If that happens, I suspect we see him sit on Sunday vs. the Carolina Panthers. Last week with Ramsey sidelined, Emmanuel Sanders and Courtland Sutton had strong performances. Sanders had five receptions for 104 yards and Sutton had six receptions for 62 yards and a touchdown.

All of that is to say, if Ramsey sits in Week 5, D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel are strong start options in fantasy football and DFS.
