No. 2 Jaguars player who has offered almost nothing: Tim Jones, WR

The Jaguars fortified their wide receiver corps in the offseason when they signed Christian Kirk and Zay Jones. Veteran Marvin Jones Jr., who finished the 2021 season with 72 receptions for 832 yards, would now step into a complementary role and Tim Jones was supposed to round out the group.

Jones had a productive preseason, hauling in 14 receptions for 219 yards. His 3-catch, 103-yard outing against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3 solidified his roster spot. However, the Southern Miss Golden Falcon has been a non-factor in the regular season. Even though he’s been active for every game, he’s only hauled in a measly two receptions for 27 yards.

Sure, Jones is the fourth or fifth receiver on the Jags’ depth chart but the big-played potential he showed in the preseason hasn’t carried over into the regular season.

No. 1 Jaguars player who has offered almost nothing: Foley Fatukasi, DT

The Jaguars gave defensive tackle Folorunso Fatukasi a three-year deal worth $30 million in free agency to clog up running lanes and create pressure up front. Unfortunately, the former UConn Huski hasn’t had the impact he was expected to have. Some of it is due to a calf injury that forced him to miss two games but even when you take it out of the equation production has left much to be desired.

Although Fatukasi is not the only reason the Jaguars’ defense has struggled to stop the role, he’s certainly played a role. He’s posted a mediocre 59.0 Pro Football Focus run grade and his 28.9 tackling grade is one of the worst on the team. His lack of impact led Jason Fitzgerald of Over The Cap to name him one of the 10 worst signings in 2022.
