4. Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley will have his 100+ yard game of the season, score 1 TD
Tight end Evan Engram and wide receiver Christian Kirk became key cogs on the Jaguars offense last year and remain heavily involved in 2023. The former leads the team (36) with catches and Kirk is second with 33. Both of them should get their number called against the Saints but Calvin Ridley could turn out to be the biggest X-Factor.
Ridley has had a few relatively quiet games but that's not due to a lack of effort. Instead, teams are devoting lots of resources to minimize his impact. But in spite of all the attention he's gotten this season, the Alabama product has still managed to haul in 26 receptions for 363 yards with two touchdowns. His 14.0-yard-per-catch average leads the Jags heading into Week 7. Regardless of who starts behind center, expect Ridley to have his third 100-yard game of the season and take a trip to the Saints' end zone.
3. Jaguars OLB Josh Allen will continue his career year, sack Derek Carr twice
The Jaguars will have to wait at least one more week for defensive end DaVon Hamilton to return to the lineup. However, they'll have a favorable matchup against the Saints. Starting guard James Hurst and right tackle Ryan Ramczyk have been ruled out for the game. This means Allen, along with sophomore Travon Walker, will have lots of opportunities to take Derek Carr down.
Allen leads the league in pressures and Walker has shown growth the last two games. The former will get two sacks and the latter will get another one.
