Jaguars Fantasy Sleeper: Jarett Dillard

The Jacksonville Jaguars don't have very many fantasy sleepers, as we've noted every Saturday when I write this. On Monday Night Football against the San Diego Chargers however, I do think the Jaguars do have a good fantasy football sleeper. Wide receiver Jarett Dillard is expected to start in place of recently released Jason Hill (who cleared waivers). Dillard has been a fan favorite for a while, but has battle injuries that have kept him off the football field.

Dillard has played in spurts throughout the season, but after the bye week his playtime increased quite a bit. Since the bye week, Dillard has caught 8 passes for 89 yards and a touchdown. The running joke is that all Dillard does is get open and catch the football, which isn't really a joke but a truism. Dillard isn't very fast, but he runs precise routes and finds himself open in holes in zone defense. He also has excellent hands with long arms and a great vertical leap. I would expect Dillard to get plenty of looks with his increased play time, especially considering his tendency to run himself open.
