For the second straight week, it appears that the Jacksonville Jaguars won’t have a key piece of their offense. 

Wide receiver Zay Jones reportedly is a “long shot” to play in Week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons in London. Jones missed the Jags’ Week 3 loss against the Houston Texans with a knee injury. 

If Jones sits, Calvin Ridley, Christian Kirk and Evan Engram will be leaned on even more in the passing game. Last week, it was Engram (seven catches, 67 yards) who led the  team in receiving. 

Zay Jones injury status for Week 4 game against Atlanta Falcons

Zay Jones is currently listed as day-to-day, but it appears he is unlikely to play in Week 4 against the Falcons. 

Update: Zay Jones has already been ruled out for Sunday's bout.

Best Jacksonville Jaguars prop bet with Zay Jones out in Week 4

Evan Engram OVER 46.5 receiving yards

This is an absolute bargain for Engram in Week 4, as he’s cleared 46.5 receiving yards in all three of his games this season. 

Two of those games came with Jones in the lineup, but the Jaguars tight end has been consistently targeted, seeing 21 looks and making 18 catches through the first three weeks of the season. 

Now, he gets to take on an Atlanta defense that let rookie Sam LaPorta run wild in Week 3 (eight catches, 84 yards and a touchdown). The Jaguars’ offense needs to get back on track, and I think getting the ball to Engram is a good way to start.
