Jaguars Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 4


This week could be a juicy match up for several Jaguar players, as they head to Indianapolis to face their division rival, the Colts. Which ever team comes out victorious will at least have a share of first place in the AFC South. That being said, the Jaguars do not have to win the game to have fantasy relevance. Here is this week’s Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em.

Start ‘Em

Allen Robinson – He is coming off a game in which he caught four passes for 68 yards and didn’t reach the end zone. Those numbers won’t win you your fantasy match up, but look for Robinson to turn it around this week against a Colts’ defense that gives up the 9th most points to opposing wide receivers. Add the fact that Marqise Lee and Rashad Greene are both out and a big performance could be in store for  AR-15.

Allen Hurns – Hurns hasn’t had less then 60 yards in a game this season, and is available in over 90% of leagues. If you’re looking for a WR2 or a flex play this week, Hurns could be your man. Expect him to be targeted a lot, as Allen Robinson will be followed around the field by the Colts best cornerback, Vontae Davis.

Blake Bortles – Bortles is ranked 15th amongst quarterbacks in fantasy this season. He has thrown for at least one touchdown in each game and is going up against a Colts’ defense that gives up 261 passing yards a game. If you are one of the unfortunate fantasy owners who drafted Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, or Tony Romo then Bortles could be the perfect candidate for you.

T.J. Yeldon – Yeldon is a safe play this week as your RB2. He is coming off his worst game of the season and will be ready to roll in his first game against a division opponent for the Jags. The Colts are in the bottom half of the league when it comes to giving up fantasy points to running backs and Yeldon will be looking for his first touchdown of the season. Feel comfortable starting him this week.

Jason Myers – He will get to play in a dome for the first time in his pro career. His value will depend on the Jaguars’ offense moving the ball effectively. If the Jaguars get stopped inside the Colts’ 40 yard line, then look for them to let Myers rip it. He could have a big game, in what is also his first divisional matchup for the Jags.

Feeling Lucky?

Bryan Walters – the Jaguars’ slot receiver will see increased playing time as Marqise Lee and Rashad Greene are both out with injuries. He could be worth a shot as your flex in what could be a high scoring matchup.

Sit ‘Em

Everyone else on the Jags – The Jags’ D/ST hasn’t been fantasy relevant this year and are virtually unplayable against the Colts, unless Andrew Luck, who is questionable, doesn’t play. If he doesn’t play then the Jags D/ST are a safe bet to put up some points. Marcedes Lewis, who likely isn’t on your roster, cannot be played. He has had zero fantasy impact this year and cannot be relied on.
