Jacksonville Jaguars Fantasy Duds Week 2
Jacksonville Jaguars fantasy owners are tearing their hair out. After another disappointing week for the Jacksonville Jaguars, it is getting tougher and tougher to find fantasy studs on the team. However, it is becoming a bit easier to identify fantasy duds. Without further ado, let’s get to the lists:

Allen Hurns, Wide Receiver
After having the sixth best debut in the history of wide receivers, Hurns managed to turn in a two catch, thirteen yard performance against the Washington Redskins. He had one massive play literally in his hands but managed to bobble it three or four times before it hit the earth. If he had caught it we may be having a different conversation as he would have racked up some major yards and maybe some points. As it stands, he simply didn’t go off as anticipated. He’s still worth keeping an eye on, though. Just don’t start him like I did. Let’s see if he can put together another quality game.

Toby Gerhart, Running Backs
Sunday showed that the offensive line really can’t pass block but in the shadow of the 10 sacks allowed is the meager 25 yards rushing put together by the Jags. Of those, only eight yards came from “workhorse” Gerhart, who had seven rushes for a disappointing per carry average of just over one yard. It’s pretty safe to say that if you have Gerhart on your roster you could move past him at this point because he isn’t getting near enough to the end zone to get points and the offensive line isn’t opening enough holes for him to rack up yards.

Chad Henne, Quarterback
Despite failing to hold on for a win last week, Henne had some decent numbers and was worth mentioning as keeping an eye on. In week two he showed exactly why he isn’t seen as a long term answer for teams. His 193 yards with a pick and a TD all while throwing for exactly 50% isn’t heartwarming for fantasy owners. There were a few drops, but what matters is actual, tangible production and you won’t see that from Henne at this point. Week two was a major dud for Henne, especially for those hoping he could replicate some of the early game success he had against the Eagles and turn that into some fantasy production.
