Jacksonville Jaguars

 

Quarterback

Trevor Lawrence (Sit, QB2)

 

The Jacksonville Jaguars were probably expecting more out of Trevor Lawrence in his rookie year. Other than Week 1 he hasn’t had a multi-touchdown game and now has two games with no passing touchdowns at all. The first overall pick has a chance to get better in Week 10 against a Colts defense that ranked 31st in terms of giving up points to the quarterback position. Going from a defensive battle in Week 9 against the Bills to what looks to be a shootout in Week 10 against the Colts will probably make fantasy owners want to start Lawrence. The matchup says play him but the on-field production of only completing 59.5% of his passes and nine interceptions says not to. I think there are better options this week at the quarterback position. If you are in a 2QB league his is a fine start.

 

Running Backs

James Robinson (Start, RB2), Carlos Hyde (Sit)

 

If the Colts are good at one thing on the defensive side of the ball it’s stopping the run. They are currently ranked 3rd by CBS in giving points to the running back position. James Robinson should return from a heel injury that made him miss Week 9. Robinson has been the workhorse back for the Jags when healthy. He has 88 carries compared to Carlos Hyde who has 54 on the season. Both Hyde and Robinson have missed time this year due to injury but both should be back for Week 10. Against a tough rushing defense Robinson should be first to get a crack at continuing his 5.5 yards per carry. Carlos Hyde will go back to his change of pace role. Robinson has 16 red zone rushes compared to five for Hyde so if the Jags can get close to pay dirt Robinson has a high chance of scoring.

 

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Jamal Agnew(Start, WR2), Laviska Shenault (Sit, WR5), Marvin Jones Jr. (Sit, Flex), Dan Anrnold (Sit, TE2) Chris Manhertz (Sit)

 

There isn’t much to be excited about in Jacksonville so far this season. Marvin Jones started the season hot but has since cooled off. D.J. Chark got injured in Week 4. Laviska Shenault had a good for week stretch sandwich between weeks of lackluster performance. Jamal Agnew has come on strong in the past few weeks. It’s hard to find much to be excited about. Agnew seems to be the main guy right now but only played 54% of the team’s snaps in Week 9. Shenault and Jones are playing 73% and 90% of the team’s snaps but haven’t had a game over 35 yards since Week 6. Coach Urban Meyer traded for tightened Dan Arnold back before Week 4. Since coming to Duval County, Arnold has seen 32 targets over the 5fivegames. He is a high-end TE2 but there are probably better options out there. He should be watched going forward because he seems to be a bigger part of the offense than most people expected.

 

Indianapolis Colts

 

Quarterback

Carson Wentz (Start, QB1)

 

Carson Wentz has led the Colts back into the playoff picture after losing the first three weeks of the season. Wentz has been on a great pace since Week 4. He only has two interceptions which came in Week 8 but has 14 touchdowns through the air and added one on the ground. CBS has the Jaguars ranked 20th in terms of giving points to the quarterback position. What’s even better for Wentz is in Week 9 late in the 3rd quarter the Colts had the game more than locked up and were up by 42 to 16, the coaching staff kept Wentz in the game and kept throwing the ball. They could have saved some snaps to work towards having to send a lesser pick to Philadelphia. Wentz is a must-start right now. He has produced and has weapons around him that are making him better.

 

Running Backs

Jonathan Taylor (Start, RB1), Nyheim Hines (Sit), Marlon Mack (Sit)

 

Who’s the best running back in the NFL? At the start of the season people were tossing out names but almost never in that conversation was Jonathan Taylor. Going into Week 10 Taylor has cemented himself as a Top-3 running back. He would be there even if there weren’t injuries to guys like Derrick Henry and Saquon Barkley. He is second in the league in rushes of 20+ yards with seven, total rushing yards, and rushing touchdowns. The Wisconsin product has also been involved in the passing game. He has had nine targets in the past three weeks and has caught eight of them. That passing work has made Nyheim Hines expendable for fantasy rosters. He has lacked the production on his limited snaps. He has taken over the backup role for the Colts as Marlon Mack was inactive in Week 9 after seeking a trade that never materialized. The Jaguars have a pretty good run defense but Taylor’s talent should still get him into a Top-12 fantasy day.

 

Wide Receivers/ Tight Ends

Michael Pittman Jr (Start, WR1), Zach Pascal (Sit, Flex), Parris Campbell (Sit-IR), T.Y. Hilton(Sit-Out), Ashton Dulin (Sit), Jack Doyle (Sit, Te2), Mo Allie-Cox (Sit)

 

The Colts have been clicking on all cylinders lately, and the passing offense has been stellar despite injuries and lack of a big name. Second-year star Michael Pittman Jr is on a three-game scoring streak. He has 25 targets over those three games and is catching 76% of his targets. Zach Pascal has come into his own as the wide receiver two for the team after Parris Campbell and T.Y. Hilton have missed time with injuries. The Jags are ranked 24th by CBS in giving points to the wide receiver position. With a 47.4 spread, it doesn’t look to be a super high scoring game but the Colts seem to always have games close so the passing work will be there. If it is was projected to be a higher scoring game with less running I could see Pascal being a solid flex play. Tight ends have been a mixed bag lately. There seem to be too many there to make any of them fantasy relevant. Jack Doyle got the touchdown the past two games. He is playing on average 62% of the team’s snaps which beats out Mo Allie-Cox who is at 52.8%. Big man, Allie-Cox does have more targets than Doyle over the past three weeks but it’s still not enough to make him fantasy startable. I think in dynasty formats Ashton Dulin is a great addition for the future.
