Lawrence completed 11 of 23 pass attempts for 174 yards, two touchdowns, one interception and four lost fumbles in Sunday's 29-21 loss to Philadelphia.
Analysis: Lawrence got off to blazing start with two quick touchdowns to put his team up 14-0 in the first quarter. That's where the positive reviews end for the sophomore quarterback, as he was figured out by the Eagles' defense from there on out and watched the game literally slip from his hands (career high four fumbles lost). Lawrence will get an opportunity to redeem himself next Sunday in a soft matchup against the Texans.

Lawrence completed 28 of 39 passes for 262 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Chargers.
Analysis: The second-year QB put together one of the best performances of his young career, hitting all three of his top wideouts (Christian Kirk, Marvin Jones and Zay Jones) for scores while also tossing a two-point conversion to Evan Engram. Lawrence is thriving under new head coach Doug Pederson, posting a 6:1 TD:INT through the first three games of 2022, but he'll likely need to stay productive in Week 4 if the Jaguars are going to stay competitive on the road against Jalen Hurts and the Eagles.
Sep 25, 2022 4:56 PM EST
Lawrence completed 25 of 30 passes for 235 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 24-0 win over the Colts.
Analysis: Lawrence was sharp early, as he led the Jaguars on a 15-play, 68-yard drive that concluded with a 10-yard touchdown toss to Christian Kirk. The Jaguars jumped out to a big lead from there, so Lawrence was largely asked to manage the game. However, he did well with that task, accurately finding Kirk deep down the field on a few occasions. Lawrence's performances haven't been perfect to begin the season, but he has looked far more comfrotable as a professional quarterback.
Sep 18, 2022 5:02 PM EST
Lawrence completed 24 of 42 pass attempts for 275 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 28-22 loss to the Commanders.
Analysis: Lawrence and the entire Jaguars' offense got off to a slow start, but sophomore quarterback got things rolling in the second half, highlighted by a 49-yard bomb to Christian Kirk. The 22-year-old was attempting to complete an impressive comeback drive in the closing moments of the contest, but he was harassed in the pocket and threw up a lame duck that was easily intercepted. The lack of protection seemed to be a recurring theme after last year's inconsistent line play. Lawrence's fantasy managers are hoping that the quarterback's protection problems and high rate of interceptions will get ironed out next Sunday against the Colts.

Lawrence and other starters won't play in the Jaguars' third and final preseason game Saturday against Atlanta, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL Jacksonville reports.
Analysis: Lawrence played multiple drives in each of the first two games, completing 20 of 33 passes for 228 yards and a touchdown and adding 24 rushing yards. His next appearance will come Week 1 at Washington, facing a defense that was one of the league's best in 2020 and one of its worst in 2021, as no team allowed more fantasy points to quarterbacks last year.
Aug 23, 2022 8:03 AM EST
Lawrence completed 14 of 21 passes for 133 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Steelers. He also gained 13 yards on the ground.
Analysis: Lawrence played the entire first half and effectively led the Jaguars to a pair of field goals. He showed particular rapport with Marvin Jones, connecting with the veteran receiver for gains of 16, 14 and 10 yards. While preseason statistics can be misleading, Lawrence appears far more comfortable in his second season as a pro.
Aug 20, 2022 9:22 PM EST
Coach Doug Pederson said Thursday that he'd like Lawrence and other starters to play into the second quarter in Saturday's preseason game against Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Lawrence was held out of the Hall of Fame Game before completing six of 12 passes for 95 yards and a touchdown in last week's preseason loss to the Browns. He'll face a star-studded Pittsburgh defense for his second preseason appearance, though it isn't clear all of the Steelers' big names will take the field.
Aug 18, 2022 6:30 AM EST
Lawrence completed six of 12 passes for 95 yards and a touchdown while adding an 11-yard run in Friday's 24-13 preseason loss to the Browns.
Analysis: After leading a pair of field-goal drives in the first quarter, Lawrence connected with tight end Evan Engram for a nine-yard touchdown to take a 13-0 lead early in the second quarter on his final pass of the game. Cleveland's backups staged a comeback after that, but this was an encouraging performance from Jacksonville's starters on both sides of the ball. Lawrence will look to build on this performance in Jacksonville's next preseason game, Aug. 20 against the Steelers.
Aug 12, 2022 8:04 PM EST
Lawrence and other starters will play in Friday's preseason game against Cleveland, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Coach Doug Pederson estimated his starters will play a couple of drives, after he held them out of the Hall of Fame Game entirely. Lawrence has job security, of course, but it'd still be encouraging to see him put on a decent performance after last year's disaster of a rookie season.
Aug 10, 2022 5:52 AM EST
Lawrence won't play in the Hall of Fame Game against Las Vegas on Thursday, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: With Lawrence held out and C.J. Beathard (groin) unavailable, it'll be Jake Luton getting the start and Kyle Sloter coming off the bench. Beathard vs. Luton for the backup job may be the only real competition in the QB room this summer, but it's also a crucial time in Lawrence's career as he prepares for his second NFL season with the help of a new coaching staff. The Jaguars also gave him a bit more on-field help this year, signing RG Brandon Scherff and WRs Christian Kirk and Zay Jones in the offseason. We'll likely see Lawrence in action later this preseason, if only for a few drives.
Aug 2, 2022 6:27 AM EST
Jaguars quarterbacks coach Mike McCoy said Lawrence has quickly learned the team's new offensive system and that the quarterback was already "making quicker decisions" by the end of OTAs in June, John Shipley of SI.com reports.
Analysis: The 2021 No. 1 overall pick endured a difficult rookie campaign during which he completed 60 percent of his passes for 3,641 yards with 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, and he also rushed for 334 yards and two touchdowns while losing five fumbles. The typical rookie difficulties were exacerbated by previous coach Urban Meyer's dysfunctional leadership, but Lawrence now has a fully revamped coaching staff, led by new head coach Doug Pederson. Jacksonville also spent in free agency on WR Christian Kirk, WR Zay Jones, TE Evan Engram and G Brandon Scherff, which is a significant boost over his previous supporting cast. Lawrence's outlook is certainly improved heading into 2022 compared to where he finished last season, but it remains to be seen if that results in him being even a semi-reliable option for fantasy managers.
Jul 5, 2022 2:20 PM EST
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.
Jan 9, 2022 6:32 PM EST
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.
Jan 2, 2022 3:34 PM EST
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.
Dec 26, 2021 1:23 PM EST
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.
Dec 19, 2021 2:27 PM EST
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
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.
Dec 5, 2021 5:32 PM EST
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
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.
Nov 21, 2021 2:15 PM EST
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.
