The Jaguars are coming off a loss to the Titans, but in that matchup there were some true fantasy gems. Returning home to face a Colts’ team that is pretty terrible against almost all offensive positions in fantasy, several Jaguars’ players are likely to put up big numbers again.
Blake Bortles — Coming off his best game as a pro, Bortles will look to continue his hot streak against a Colts’ team that is ranked 23rd against opposing QB’s. In his first matchup with the Colts, he threw for 1 TD and just under 300 yards. He will look to improve on those numbers now that he has his full compliment of receivers healthy. In DFS he is still outperforming his cost and could be key to you winning money this weekend.
Allen Robinson — Simply put, he’s a beast. Coming off of the first 3 TD game of his career, Robinson is having perhaps the most impressive season of any second year WR, including OBJ. The Colts are the third worst team in the whole league against opposing WR’s and are unlikely to give Robinson much of a challenge this week. In his first matchup with the Colts this year, he failed to reach the end zone — look for that to change on Sunday. In DFS Robinson is becoming one of the pricier WR’s, but his performance is undeniable. He has a good matchup this week and could help you out big time.

Julius Thomas — Thomas has scored a TD in 3 straight games and is facing a Colts secondary that is ranked 22nd against opposing TE’s. Keep him in your lineup this week as he will likely be targeted heavily. In DFS he is still cheaper than many other TE’s with similar production and could be a valuable TE or Flex play.
Allen Hurns — The return of Hurns! Hurns missed the Jaguars’ last contest due to a concussion, but he is back and ready for action. Sure, in his last 2 games before sustaining his concussion he only had 7 catches for 61 yards total, but he is going against the Colts, who just so happened to allow Hurns 11 catches for 116 yards and a TD in their last matchup. In DFS he is a great value play as his production is far greater than his cost.
T.J. Yeldon — Yeldon has averaged over 10 PPG in standard leagues since Week 4 of this season and hasn’t scored less than 6 points in any game during that stretch. He is unlikely to have a monster day, but he is good source of points and can be relied upon as an RB2 or Flex play this week against the Colts, who are 25th in the NFL against opposing RB’s. In DFS Yeldon is a value option as his cost is much cheaper than his production would indicate.
Rashad Greene — Greene is back in action and scored a TD last week, but he simply has not been targeted enough to be a viable option. Let him ride the waiver wire until he proves otherwise, which he likely will at some point, if not this season, then next. In DFS he is simply not an option.
Marqise Lee — Lee still hasn’t had that break out game since returning from injury. It could happen this week, but he is not worth the risk as he could just as easily put up a stinker.
Jason Myers — Who knows what to expect from Myers. He’s been a mixed bag this year and did absolutely nothing last week against the Titans. After missing 2 extra points in one game it is unclear if the Jaguars’ coaching staff will trust Myers, which means you certainly should not.
Jaguars D/ST — They are bad right now — really bad. At this point it looks like a dumpster fire that can only be put out by an offseason of brining in free agents and adding young talent through the draft.
Essentially the Jaguars offense is loaded with talent — talent that has been transitioning to fantasy production quite nicely this season. Against a Colts defense that has steadily gotten worse over the course of the season, it is highly possible that any member of the Jaguars’ offense could have a big day, but we would definitely trust in the starters this week.
