Josiah Deguara Signs One-Year Deal With Jaguars

Former Green Bay Packers tight end Josiah Deguara signed an undisclosed one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, according to a source. Deguara will head to the AFC after spending the first four years of his NFL career playing for the Packers. Green Bay took him in the third round (94th overall) in 2020 out of Cincinnati. In his four years with the team, he recorded 47 catches on 58 targets for 436 yards and only two touchdowns in 50 games played (10 starts). In 15 regular-season games (four starts) in 2023, the 27-year-old caught just eight passes for 65 yards and no scores. Deguara will mostly be useful to the Jaguars for his blocking skills on offense and on special teams, so fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to make an impact catching the ball behind Evan Engram, the team's top pass-catching tight end.

Dontayvion Wicks, Josiah Deguara Questionable For Week 13

Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Dontayvion Wicks (knee) and tight end Josiah Deguara (hip) have both been listed as questionable to play in the Week 13 contest against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday. Fellow rookie wideout Jayden Reed (chest) is also questionable, so it could mean more targets for Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs in a game in which the Packers might have to throw often. The 22-year-old Wicks was unable to play on Thanksgiving last week and has been the team's No. 4 wideout when healthy, although he had seen his role grow a bit in the weeks leading up to his injury. The Packers may be without rookie tight end Luke Musgrave (kidney) for the rest of the year, so fellow rookie Tucker Kraft is the Packers' starter at the position moving forward.
