Quartet of Jaguars pitch in to Sunday win with one catch


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Several Jaguars chipped in with offensive contributions Sunday against the Browns. The most well-rounded was wideout Marqise Lee, who caught one pass for 20 yards and added two carries for five yards.

The other small contributors added one catch - Jordan Todman for 26 yards, Allen Hurns for seven yards and Ace Sanders for no yards.

Conditioning key for Ace Sanders


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"He's fired up," coach Gus Bradley told the Florida Times-Union. "He's excited. You can only imagine. ... I think it's important to see where he's at and his conditioning. It would be great to get him back here not only on offense, but on punt returns as well."


Ace Sanders back from four-game suspension


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Jaguars receiver Ace Sanders is officially back from a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Ace Sanders back with Jaguars


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Jaguars receiver Ace Sanders returned from his leave of absence and might play Thursday in the final preseason game, reports the Florida Times-Union. Sanders is suspended for the first four regular-season games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Ace Sanders could play fourth preseason game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Jaguars receiver Ace Sanders could return from his leave of absence in time to play in the fourth preseason game, reports the Florida Times-Union. Coach Gus Bradley said he won't hesitate to play Sanders if he returns in good shape.

However, Sanders remains suspended for the first four regular-season games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He took a leave of absence for what he termed "personal issues."


Jaguars have lost seven receivers so far


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) For a few hours Wednesday, the Jaguars had two healthy receivers who have played in the NFL. That's how many receivers Jacksonville has lost. ESPN.com updated the team's woes at wideout:

Mike Brown went down with hamstring tightness Wednesday after a strong camp. It's unclear how long he'll be out.

Starter Cecil Shorts left the first practice July 25 with hamstring tightness too and has not practiced since. Rookie Allen Robinson strained his hamstring July 31 and will be out at least one more week. Tandon Doss is out indefinitely with a badly sprained ankle.

Rookie Damian Copeland went on IR on Monday with a wrist injury. Rookie Nathan Slaughter sprained his foot and is out several weeks. Ace Sanders, who caught 51 passes last year, took a leave of absence for "personal issues" and will face a four-game substance abuse suspension upon his return.

"Man, I've never seen anything like it," said receiver Kerry Taylor, who started four games last year. "I don't even know what to call it."

Ace Sanders leaves Jaguars camp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/22/2014) Jaguars receiver Ace Sanders announced Tuesday that he was taking a leave of absence from training camp and beyond because of "personal issues." Sanders wouldn't specify except to say he's going to get some counseling and that he expects to receive a four-game suspension from the NFL for violating their substance abuse policy. He's not expected to participate in training camp or the preseason. 

"I've decided to go seek help, get [the] attention that I need -- hopefully somebody can help me out," Sanders said per the Florida Times-Union. "I should be OK; I just want to get better and come back and be ready to play. Sometimes life hits and it's hard."


Jaguars put four on injury lists


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) The Jaguars put receiver Ace Sanders and cornerback Aaron Colvin on the non-football injury list and cornerback Alan Ball and linebacker Dekoda Watson on the PUP list.

Jaguars counting on Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) The Jaguars have questions at receiver this season, reports ESPN.

Heading into the season, the only certainties based on experience are Cecil Shorts and Ace Sanders. After that, the rest of the group is unknown.

The report says it would seem second-round picks Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson would naturally be the next two, but both missed most organized team activities and all of minicamp with injuries. They're supposed to be fully cleared for camp, but they missed valuable time.

Next would be Kerry Taylor and Mike Brown, as well as undrafted rookie Allen Hurns. Justin Blackmon is suspended indefinitely.


Jaguars receiving corps starts to take shape


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/24/2014) The Jaguars are expected to go with Cecil Shorts, Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee, Mike Brown, Allen Hurns and Ace Sanders as their receivers this season, reports the Florida Times-Union.

The report says Sanders has an edge on Tandon Doss, and Hurns, an undrafted free agent, was one of the biggest surprises of the offseason and makes the team if he can stay on the field. Brown also earns a spot because his reliability gives him the advantage.


Ace Sanders might not make final roster


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/9/2014) Jaguars receiver Ace Sanders could be on the roster bubble, reports the Florida Times-Union.

The report says "it wouldn't be a shock because 5-foot-7 players who don't make guys miss don't have a ton of value."

Sanders, entering his second year in the NFL, had 51 catches for 484 yards and one touchdown as a rookie in 2013. But the Jaguars added rookies Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee this offseason, which could make it hard for Sanders to get playing time even if he makes the final roster.


Jaguars receivers hurting


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Jaguars rookie receiver Marqise Lee missed his third consecutive practice Thursday with an ankle injury, reports the Florida Times-Union. He was joined on the sidelines by wideouts Cecil Shorts (calf), Ace Sanders (hamstring), Mike Brown (groin), rookie Allen Robinson (hamstring), Tandon Doss (calf) and Lamaar Thomas (knee).

Ace Sanders headed for Sproles-like role?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/7/2014) Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said Thursday during a fan function that he's hoping receiver Ace Sanders can become a "Darren Sproles-type" of player, per the Florida Times-Union. 

Sanders caught 51 passes for 484 yards and a touchdown in his rookie season, finishing in the Top 5 among receivers in receptions. According to ProFootballFocus.com Sanders caught 45 of his 51 passes within nine yards of the line of scrimmage, so he's basically on his way to being in that role. Sanders has diminutive height and excellent speed, just like Sproles.  


Jaguars receivers effective Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Jaguars pass catchers were effective Week 17 against the Colts.

Kerry Taylor led the way for the Jaguars, catching eight passes for 75 yards. He also managed to catch a 14 yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Marcedes Lewis continued his strong second half, gaining 70 yards and three catches. Ace Sanders had six catches for 50 yards. 

Mike Brown caught three passes for 43 yards. Lamaar Thomas and Danny Noble each caught one ball. Clay Harbor had 11 yards before leaving with an injury. Jordan Todman had one catch for 12 yards. He also carried the ball twice for 3 yards.


Ace Sanders ready to roll


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Jaguars WR Ace Sanders is active Week 17.

Sanders came into the game with a finger injury. Despite the injury, he was able to get through full practice Thursday and Friday.


Eight Jaguars probable for Week 17 game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) The Jaguars have deemed eight players as probable for their Sunday clash against Indianapolis, including top back Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) and linebacker Paul Posluszny (groin).

The others are cornerback Alan Ball (ankle/shoulder), wide receivers Ace Sanders (finger) and Mike Brown (wrist), safeties Johnathan Cyprien (thigh/foot) and Josh Evans (shoulder) and defensive tackle Jordan Miller (shoulder).


Ace Sanders flunks Week 16


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Jaguars wide receiver Ace Sanders had another uninspiring performance Week 16 against the Titans. His five targets weren't far off from Kerry Taylor's seven or Mike Brown's six, but he had just four catches for 20 yards.

It was his third straight game with less than 30 receiving yards after topping 60 in his previous three. And unlike in Week 15, he was held without a touchdown.

Though Sanders has a role in the Jaguars passing game with Cecil Shorts on IR with a groin injury, both Brown (five catches for 71 yards) and Taylor (four catches for 45 yards) look like the bigger contributors heading into Week 17 at Indianapolis.


Ace Sanders will give it another go


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/19/2013) Jaguars wide receiver Ace Sanders, who was expected to become the preferred target with Cecil Shorts on IR, had just two catches for 17 yards in his first crack at it Week 15 against Buffalo. He scored a touchdown, redeeming his afternoon somewhat, but he had only three targets.

Most likely, things won't get much better for him Week 16 against Tennessee. The Titans rank 10th against the pass, allowing 225.9 yards per game, and have given up the second-fewest Fantasy points to wide receivers this season. They've been much more vulnerable to the run, so more likely than not, that's how the Jaguars will attack them.

Sanders still has the potential to be a high-volume receiver out of the slot, but now probably isn't the time to take a chance on him.


Ace Sanders doesn't play a big role Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Jaguars WR Ace Sanders didn't play a big role Week 15 against the Bills.

Sanders was expected to see an increased workload with Cecil Shorts out, but only caught two passes for 17 yards. He made one of those catches count, scoring on a 12 yard pass in the second quarter. Sanders was targeted just three times. He'll look for more Week 16 against the Titans.


Ace Sanders tosses score on trick play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Last week, running back Maurice Jones-Drew became the first non-quarterback to throw a touchdown pass for the Jaguars. Coach Gus Bradley decided to go back to the well in Week 14 against the Texans Thursday, and this time it was wide receiver Ace Sanders who got the chance to toss a pass.

Sanders threw a 21-yard score in the third quarter to Jordan Todman, the first pass attempt of his NFL career. Sanders, a rookie, threw just four passes in college, though two of them did go for touchdowns.

Sanders added three receptions for 26 yards, and rushed the ball once for no gain in the 27-20 win. He heads into Week 15 against the Bills with 39 catches for 397 yards in his rookie season. 


Ace Sanders worth deeper league consideration


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/3/2013) Jaguars wide receiver Ace Sanders has three consecutive 60-plus yard games, with 10 or more targets in two of the three. The 67 receiving yards in Week 13 were a season high.

Week 14 brings a matchup against the Texans, who Sanders faced in Week 12. In that game, Sanders caught four passes for 61 yards -- the only game in his last three with single-digit targets. Still, he managed to hit that 60-yard mark despite the lack of attention.

If you're going to add a player like Michael Floyd in standard-sized leagues for his string of 90-plus yard games, you might want to consider Sanders in deeper (16-team) formats, as he's essentially doing the same thing, just on a lower level.

Sanders isn't a starter in most formats, but he does have some deep league relevancy and could be a nice late-season add in dynasty formats.


Ace Sanders contributes 67 yards in defeat of Cleveland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Jaguars wideout Ace Sanders lived up to his first name Sunday in Cleveland with his finest performance of the season.

Sanders matched a season-high with eight catches and established another with 67 yards to help his team beat the Browns. He has 20 catches for 189 yards in his last three games after managing a mere four receptions in the previous four games combined, but he has yet to score this season. He will try to get in the end zone against the Texans on Thursday night.


Long catch highlights Ace Sanders' day Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Jaguars wide receiver Ace Sanders filled in nicely for injured wide receiver Mike Brown, totaling 61 receiving yards for a second straight game Week 12 at Houston. Sanders finished with four catches on five targets.

Sanders got off to a really quick start Sunday, as he totaled two catches on the opening drive, which included a 51-yard catch-and-run down to the Houston 8-yard line. Unfortunately, Sanders would total just two catches for 8 yards the rest of the game.

The Jaguars are back in action Week 13 at Cleveland.
