Jaguars WR Ace Sanders facing 4-game suspension, taking leave of absence

Jaguars wide receiver Ace Sanders told reporters Tuesday that he is taking a leave of absence from football to handle some "personal issues." He also said he is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
"I've decided to go seek help and get that attention," Sanders said. "I should be fine. ... I've made some mistakes that I could have handled a little differently."
Sanders said he will seek "counseling, anybody that can give me insight" during training camp. He will likely be away from the team for all of camp and doesn't know if he will remain in Jacksonville while addressing his issues. However, Sanders said he is looking forward to playing again. He won't be eligible to play this season until Oct. 5.

Fantasy Analysis:

Sanders caught a respectable 51 passes for 484 yards as a rookie last season. He had minimal fantasy value prior to this development. The Jags' top three wideouts are slated to be Cecil Shorts @CecilShortsIII followed by rookies Marqise Lee @TeamLee1 and Allen Robinson.
