Shows promise in upset win

Lawrence completed 23 of 32 passes for 223 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 26-11 win over the Colts. He added 10 rushes for 17 yards.

Analysis: Lawrence helped the Jaguars to an upset win and threw for multiple touchdowns for the first time since Week 1 in the process. He showed particular rapport with Marvin Jones, which culminated in a three-yard score late in the third quarter. While the Jaguars squandered good field position to settle for field goals on a few occasions, Lawrence averaged 7.0 yards per attempt and has hit that mark in three consecutive games to close the campaign. That's a relatively low mark when compared to even mediocre quarterbacks around the league, though Lawrence had accomplished that feat only three times in his first 14 games as a pro. His rookie season didn't go as planned, but Lawrence still showed flashes of promise to suggest that he is the franchise quarterback the Jaguars believed they were selecting with the top pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Throws TD, three picks in loss

Lawrence completed 17 of 27 passes for 193 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions during Sunday's 50-10 loss to the Patriots. He added two carries for 16 yards.

Analysis: Lawrence connected with Dare Ogunbowale for a score on a 28-yard screen pass, but it was otherwise another ugly performance from the rookie quarterback and the Jacksonville offense. It was Lawrence's first touchdown since Week 12, but it's hardly worth celebrating given it came late in the fourth quarter with the Jags trailing by 47 points. The 22-year-old will close out the season with another tough matchup against the Colts in Week 18.

Stuck on one TD in last eight games

Lawrence completed 26 of 39 passes for 280 yards without a touchdown or interception in Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Jets. He added 37 yards on six rushing attempts and fumbled twice, losing one.

Analysis: Lawrence was bailed out early in the second quarter, as he fumbled on the Jets' one-yard line but the ball was recovered by offensive lineman Will Richardson in the end zone for a Jacksonville touchdown. The rookie first-overall pick racked up his highest passing yardage total since Week 6, but he came one yard short of leading his team to victory, as his 4th-and-goal incompletion from New York's one-yard line in the game's final seconds was the deciding play. This loss has the Jaguars in position to pick first overall for the second consecutive season, barring an upset win over the Patriots or Colts over the final two games. Lawrence will look to end his four-game touchdown drought at some point in those Week 17 and 18 contests.

Avoids turnovers in loss

Lawrence completed 22 of 38 passes for 210 yards with zero touchdowns or interceptions during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Texans. He also had five carries for 21 yards.

Analysis: Lawrence took care of the ball Sunday after throwing four interceptions last week, but he averaged just 5.5 yards per attempt as the offense managed only one touchdown. The rookie No. 1 overall pick has thrown only two touchdowns in eight games since Jacksonville's Week 7 bye, which is contrasted by six interceptions and four fumbles (one lost) during that stretch.

Disastrous day against Titans

Lawrence completed 24 of 40 passes for 221 yards, no touchdowns and four interceptions in Sunday's 20-0 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Lawrence was fairly efficient in the first half, as he completed 10 passes on 12 attempts for 93 yards. However, things unraveled in the second half as he threw all four of his picks with Jacksonville pushing to get back in the game. On the positive side of things, he did get the ball to key playmakers such as Marvin Jones, Laquon Treadwell and Laviska Shenault thanks to the fact that he attempted 40 passes. Overall, however, Lawrence continues to struggle in his rookie campaign as he has thrown for zero touchdowns in five of his last six contests.

Dec 12, 2021 7:55 PM EST

Another bad game

Lawrence completed 16 of 28 passes for 145 yards against the Rams on Sunday.

Analysis: Lawrence and the Jaguars offense tend to do nothing good even against defenses worse than this one, so a dreary outcome like this was to be expected against the Rams. Similarly, there's not much reason to hope for anything good when Lawrence and the Jaguars face the Titans in Week 14, though the matchup is arguably more favorable than the Rams were.

Throws rare TD on Sunday

Lawrence completed 23 of 42 passes for 228 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Falcons. He also had five carries for 39 yards.

Analysis: There was a chance for Lawrence to have a breakout performance against an Atlanta defense that had allowed the fourth-most passing touchdowns (20, tied with the Dolphins and Raiders) entering Week 12 action. But he had a tough time getting in rhythm with any of his receivers, with his top three options (Marvin Jones, Laviska Shenault and Laquon Treadwell) combining to haul in 13 of 24 targets for 129 yards. The 2021 first overall pick salvaged his day somewhat with a seven-yard scoring strike to Tavon Austin in the third quarter, but he now has tossed just four TDs versus two interceptions in his last eight games. Lawrence may have a tough time righting the ship next Sunday when the Jags visit the Rams in L.A.

Nov 28, 2021 1:18 PM EST

Struggles again

Lawrence completed 16 of 25 pass attempts for 158 yards against San Francisco on Sunday, adding three carries for 23 yards.

Analysis: Lawrence managed to avoid turnovers but couldn't generate any yardage until the game was almost over, leading the Jaguars to their only touchdown (a one-yard James Robinson carry) with just about three minutes left in the 30-10 blowout. Perhaps Lawrence can do better against Atlanta in Week 12, but there's not much reason to take the leap of faith given the profound struggles of the Jacksonville offense to this point.

Struggles with accuracy in loss

Lawrence completed 16 of 35 passes for 162 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and rushed five times for 33 yards in the Jaguars' 23-17 loss to the Colts on Sunday. He also lost a fumble with 50 seconds remaining.

Analysis: Lawrence averaged just 4.6 yards per attempt and completed less than 50.0 percent of his throws for the first time since Week 2 and only his second time as a pro. The first overall pick's fumble on a strip sack at the Colts' 47-yard line with less than 50 seconds left sealed another loss for Jacksonville, ending the game on particularly sour note. The rookie also threw for under 200 yards and went without a touchdown or interception for the second straight contest, leaving his fantasy managers in a lurch. Lawrence continued to struggle connecting with his wideouts as well, as nine of his completions went to tight end Dan Arnold and running back James Robinson. His next opportunity to rectify the various wrongs come in a Week 11 home matchup against the 49ers.

Set to play Sunday

Lawrence (ankle) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's contest at Indianapolis.

Analysis: Lawrence missed six offensive snaps during the Jaguars' Week 9 win against the Bills due to an ankle injury, but he was able to gut it out and complete the contest. The eventual diagnosis was a low-ankle sprain, which limited him in practice Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, coach Urban Meyer relayed Lawrence was expected to play Sunday, and after putting in a full session he'll do just that against a Colts defense that has given up a league-worst 23 touchdown passes to quarterbacks this season.

Nov 12, 2021 12:06 PM EST

On track for Sunday

Coach Urban Meyer said Friday that Lawrence (ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Colts, Michael DiRocco of reports.

Analysis: The Jaguars have yet to go through Friday's practice, though Lawrence looks set to play Week 10 if he can avoid a setback. The rookie quarterback was able to return to last week's win over the Bills after suffering the low-ankle sprain, and it appears the injury won't force him to miss any additional time.

Nov 12, 2021 7:34 AM EST

Another limited practice session

Lawrence (ankle) remained limited at practice Thursday.

Analysis: Per Michael DiRocco of ESPN, coach Urban Meyer relayed earlier this week that the QB should be a go Sunday against the Colts. Friday's final injury report will determine whether the signal caller approaches the contest with a Week 10 injury designation or fully cleared to play in advance of the weekend.

Nov 11, 2021 3:14 PM EST

Limited with ankle injury

Lawrence (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.

Analysis: Lawrence returned to Sunday's 9-6 win over Buffalo after suffering a low-ankle sprain and likely will continue playing through the injury Week 10 at Indianapolis. It could impact his mobility, though he hasn't provided much of a rushing threat in recent weeks anyway, carrying just eight times for 26 yards over the past three games.

Nov 10, 2021 1:50 PM EST

Expected to play Sunday

Coach Urban Meyer said Monday that he expects Lawrence (ankle) to play Sunday against the Colts, Michael DiRocco of reports.

Analysis: Lawrence sustained a low-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Bills but was able to return to the contest. The rookie will undergo treatment in the coming days but doesn't require a protective boot on his ankle. As a result, it doesn't appear as though Lawrence will be forced to miss any additional time due to the injury.

Nov 8, 2021 11:16 AM EST

Reportedly has low-ankle sprain

Lawrence is believed to have suffered a low-ankle sprain during Sunday's upset win over the Bills, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Lawrence was able to return to Sunday's 9-6 win over the Bills after initially injuring his ankle, so there's some reason to feel optimistic about his chances of continuing to play through the issue. Per Rapoport, Lawrence is expected to be limited in practice this week, but the rookie No. 1 overall pick has avoided any structural damage. The Jaguars will be faced with a road matchup against the Colts in Week 10.

Nov 8, 2021 8:04 AM EST

Slogs through ankle issue

Lawrence (ankle) completed 15 of 26 pass attempts for 118 yards against Buffalo on Sunday.

Analysis: Lawrence suffered a low ankle sprain during the game, according to ESPN NFL Nation's Michael DiRocco, though Lawrence only left long enough for backup C.J. Beathard to throw two passes. Lawrence and the Jaguars offense were completely overmatched by the Bills defense, but the Jacksonville defense played the hero and willed the Jags to the 9-6 victory. Lawrence might get leadership points for the toughness he showed, but the fantasy situation remains bleak. It will be worth monitoring whether Lawrence shows up on the injury report leading up to Jacksonville's Week 10 game against the Colts.

Nov 7, 2021 1:57 PM EST

Returns to action Sunday

Lawrence (ankle) has returned to Sunday's game versus the Bills, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Analysis: The rookie signal-caller was deemed questionable to return after going down with the ankle injury, but he's back on the field after a brief trip to the locker room to be evaluated. C.J. Beathard completed both his pass attempts for 33 yards while Lawrence was sidelined.

Nov 7, 2021 11:35 AM EST

Returns to game

Lawrence returned to Sunday's game against the Bills after exiting the contest with an ankle injury.

Analysis: C.J. Beathard briefly took over at QB for the Jaguars, but the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft was subsequently able to return to the contest.

Nov 7, 2021 11:35 AM EST

Suffers ankle injury

Lawrence was forced out of Sunday's game against the Bills after suffering an ankle injury.

Analysis: As a result, C.J. Beathard has taken over at QB for the Jaguars. Prior to his exit from the contest, Lawrence completed 11 of his 15 pass attempts for 80 yards.

Nov 7, 2021 11:21 AM EST

Struggles on the road

Lawrence completed 32 of 54 pass attempts for 238 yards, one touchdown and one interception against Seattle on Sunday.

Analysis: The Seahawks defense isn't very talented, but the Jaguars offense is badly bereft of talent and compounds that issue with profound general dysfunction. Not to excuse Lawrence of his mistakes, but pressure and wide receivers drops were both issues. There's still reason to believe Lawrence is a very talented player who will become a star in both real life and in fantasy, but with this collection of players and Urban Meyer at head coach it's beginning to look impossible. It's a near certainty that little or nothing will improve for the Jaguars offense as they face Buffalo in Week 9.
