Jaguars Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 13


The Jaguars head to Tennessee this week to face a Titans team that they beat just 2 weeks ago. There are several Jaguars’ players that are trending in the right direction in terms of fantasy and a couple who are not. Without further ado, here’s your Week 13 Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em.

Start ‘Em

Blake Bortles — In your redraft league, if you have Bortles, you probably didn’t spend a high draft pick on him and likely have another QB on your roster. Bortles had his worst fantasy outing against the Titans just 2 weeks ago, but he played well in the game. The Titans’ defense is pretty bad against opposing QB’s, ranking 21st in the league. Look for Bortles to play well again this week in real life and fantasy. He is not a must start, but he certainly is worth getting a start this week. In DFS he is a decent value as he is much cheaper than other QB’s with similar production — he could be the key to a money making lineup.

Allen Robinson — A-Rob has the 6th most points this year of any fantasy WR and is facing a Titans D that ranks in the bottom half of the league against opposing WR’s. Regardless of matchup, Robinson is a must start at this point in the season as his numbers are undeniable. He is a true WR1 this year. He could be in for a bigger game than normal, as he will likely see more targets than usual due to Allen Hurns being in NFL’s concussion protocol. In DFS Robinson has a fairly expensive price tag, but is outperforming many players that cost more then him. He is not a true value play, but he has the steady production that you can rely on.

Julius Thomas — Jaguars fans and fantasy owners alike have been waiting for Julius Thomas to start producing and it looks like he is finally ready to do just that. He has scored a TD 2 weeks in a row and will be looking to find the end zone again this week. With Allen Hurns likely out for this week’s matchup, it looks like Thomas will get even more targets than usual. The Titans give up a ton of points to TE’s and don’t have someone who can matchup with the size and speed of Thomas. He is a must start in redraft leagues and is also a good value in DFS. It’s truly exciting to see one of fantasy’s biggest stars return to form, and doing it for the Jags!

T.J. Yeldon — Yeldon is by no means a must start, but if you have an injury you can rely on him to get at the very least close to 10 points for you. He won’t wow you with his production most weeks, but he also won’t give you a big goose egg either. He can be inserted as a Flex play or a low end RB2. In DFS he is cheap, and could be a good value play.

Jason Myers — Myers has made at least 3 FG’s in 4 straight games. During this stretch he has only missed 1 FG. Insert him into your lineup this week with confidence and watch his hot streak continue.

Sit ‘Em:

Allen Hurns — Hurns is going through concussion protocol and won’t suit up for the Jaguars this week. He has been a consistent contributor this year, but he certainly needs to be placed on your bench for now.
Jaguars D/ST — It’s possible that the Jaguars D/ST will have a strong showing against a Titans team that only managed 13 points against them 2 weeks ago. But the Jaguars D/ST is far too inconsistent to be relied upon. With no pass rush and very few turnovers created this year, the Jaguars D/ST needs to stay on the waiver wire.
