Jacksonville Jaguars

 

Quarterback

Jake Luton (Sit, QB2), Garner Minshew II (Sit)

 

Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone has announced that Gardner Minshew is still on the mend and that Jake Luton will start once again this week against the Packers. Luton put up a respectable fantasy performance last week, but that was in a much better match-up against the Texans. This week, Jake must face the Packers, a defense allowing the eighth-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this year. Luton isn’t worth any consideration this week.

 

Running Backs

James Robinson (Start, RB1)

 

James Robinson set a season-high for carries last week with Minshew out, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see a similar workload for Robinson this week. The match-up is quite similar too. The Texans are allowing the third-most fantasy points to running backs this year while the Packers have allowed the second-most. James should be in line for another RB1 performance this week.

 

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

D.J. Chark Jr. (Start, WR2), Keelan Cole Sr. (Sit), Chris Conley (Sit), Laviska Shenault Jr. (Sit), Tyler Eifert (Sit)

 

D.J. Chark Jr. had a three-week streak of mediocrity, where he averaged just 6.5 fantasy points per game. Luckily, he bounced back in a big way last week with his best fantasy performance of the season. Chark had a favorable match-up against Houston but could struggle against the Packers’ secondary this week. Green Bay is allowing the fifth-fewest points to fantasy receivers. The match-up isn’t great, but this game should still be pretty high-scoring, and there’s a good chance the Jaguars will need to put up plenty of points if they want to keep the game close. Just don’t expect another monster performance from Chark this week.

Keelan Cole Sr. is still not within start-able range, especially with the tough match-up this week. His performances have been pretty inconsistent this year too. He’s scored 10.7 points or less in five games and 15.7 points or more in three games.

Chris Conley had his best fantasy performance of the season last week too, but he isn’t likely to make an appearance on fantasy rosters anytime soon. He will get seven or eight targets every once in a while but averages just 2.2 targets per game otherwise.

Laviska Shenault Jr. exited last week’s game with a hamstring injury, but the initial reports seem to indicate the rookie could suit up for Week 10. Either way, Shenault’s stock has been decreasing a bit over the Jaguars’ past three games. Given his recent downward trend and the tough match-up, I’m not trusting Laviska this week.

Tyler Eifert has not been nearly consistent enough to warrant weekly consideration. Plus, the Packers are allowing the third-fewest fantasy points to tight ends this year. Fantasy managers should look elsewhere for a start-able tight end.

 

Green Bay Packers

 

Quarterback

Aaron Rodgers (Start, QB1)

 

Outside his Week 6 stinker, Aaron Rodgers is averaging just under 26 fantasy points per game. The Jaguars are allowing the third-most points to fantasy quarterbacks and the fifth-most passing yards per game. I’m confident Rodgers will put up another QB1 performance this week.

 

Running Backs

Aaron Jones (Start, RB1), Jamaal Williams (Sit)

 

It should once again be Aaron Jones’ and Jamaal Williams’ backfield after the latter got reactivated from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Jones, fantasy’s overall RB8 with only six games under his belt, should be a lock for RB1 production this week against the Jaguars. Jacksonville is allowing the sixth-most fantasy points and the sixth-most ground yards to running backs this year. Jamaal will likely return to fantasy handcuff status this week but could still be capable of low-end flex numbers.

 

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Davante Adams (Start, WR1), Allen Lazard (Start, WR2), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Sit, Low-end Flex if Lazard inactive), Robert Tonyan (Start, Low-end TE1), Jace Sternberger (Sit), Marcedes Lewis (Sit)

 

Davante Adams is averaging 36 points per game over the past three weeks. The Jaguars are allowing the 13th-most fantasy points to receivers this year, which should be plenty for fantasy’s overall WR2. Adams has been unstoppable lately, and I don’t expect him to slow down this week.

It looks like Allen Lazard could make his return this week, but there’s a slight chance he needs one more week. The Packers’ offense hasn’t been too bad, but they have struggled a bit without a clear WR2 option over the past couple of weeks. If Lazard suits up, he should have enough opportunity for a respectable WR2 fantasy performance this week. Jacksonville is allowing the fifth-most passing yards per game this year.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling will continue to be very “boom or bust” this year. He had a good performance last week with two touchdowns, but he also only had two catches. Valdes-Scantling is an untrustworthy flex option in deeper leagues if Lazard doesn’t start for one more week.

Given the wasteland that has been the tight end position this year, you could do worse starting Robert Tonyan this week. That said, Tonyan will likely remain inconsistent this year with Jace Sternberger and Marcedes Lewis in the mix. Sternberger had a touchdown reception on a play that usually goes to Tonyan in Week 7, and Lewis also had a touchdown on a single catch last week. Still, Tonyan is the best pass-catching tight end on this team and has the best chance at a respectable fantasy performance, especially with the juicy match-up. The Jaguars are allowing the fifth-most fantasy points to tight ends this year.

    I am starting Jones/Chubb at RB and Thomas, Chark and Cooks at WR. Who then would you recommend at Flex out of the following: Hunt, Edmonds, Justin Jefferson or DJ Moore? Maybe Hunt should start over Chubb this week? (12 team ppr league) It’s an embarrassment of riches to be sure and results in a bit of a paralysis by analysis.

  2. Steve says:

    RB’s – Henderson, Edmonds, Taylor & Drake. Which 2 would you start? would you consider starting both Edmonds & drake (if he’s healthy)? Thanks. Great article. Look forward to it every week.
