Trevor Lawrence is on the Jaguars’ final injury report for the Divisional round of the 2023 NFL Playoffs. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

Update: As expected, Lawrence is active for Sunday’s game. His toe injury has kept him on the injury report for about a month, but he has yet to miss any game time because of it so it shouldn’t be factored into any fantasy football or betting decisions.

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence is officially listed as questionable for this week’s Divisional round game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He’s got a toe injury.

While that may set off alarm bells for some, this situation is actually a familiar one. Lawrence was listed as questionable with a toe injury last week too. And the week before that. And the week before that, etc. He played in all of those games and hasn’t missed a date all season. It’s unlikely he’ll miss this week’s game.

The Jaguars and Chiefs play on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. ET.

Fantasy impact: Trevor Lawrence (toe)

The toe issue has been an ongoing thing for Lawrence for a while now, but it doesn’t seem to be negatively impacting his performance. Despite the questionable designation last week, he still managed to throw for 288 yards and four touchdowns against the Chargers, shaking off a four-pick performance at the same time.

Still, as with any injury, it’s always worth keeping an eye on the news to confirm Lawrence will play. His backup in Jacksonville is CJ Beathard.
