Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence is dealing with a concussion and an ankle injury heading into Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday this week and was a limited participant on Friday, and is listed as questionable.

Fantasy football analysis

If Lawrence is out, CJ Beathard will take over under center. If Lawrence is out, his absence will affect the fantasy output of the Jaguars’ receivers, including Calvin Ridley and tight end Evan Engram.

NFL DFS analysis

Lawrence comes in at $6600 in daily fantasy at DraftKings Sportsbook. The Buccaneers allow the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks.

Betting analysis

If Lawrence is out, we can expect to see the line for the game move in favor of the Buccaneers. Beathard has done a solid job filling in this season, going 12-for-14 for 77 yards in three appearances, but Lawrence’s presence will make all the difference in the Jags’ spread.
