Jaguars vs. Titans fantasy football: Storm Johnson, Allen Robinson, and Josh Scobee

Blake Bortles and the rest of the Jaguars offense looked off against the Steelers, but they should rebound this week against an equally anemic Titans defense.

The Jacksonville Jaguars only scored nine points against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday. But with plenty of targets to both Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns and with the offensive line doing pretty well in pass protection it's not time to devoid your entire fantasy lineup of Jaguars players.

Start 'Em

RB Storm Johnson: He was the best running back on the field for the Jaguars and if his ankle allows him to play against the Titans he'll get the bulk of the yards, both in the air and on the ground. Over the past four weeks, the Titans defense has also been atrocious against the run, giving up more than 149 yards and 1.25 touchdowns per game to opposing running backs. Pick him up on waivers and pray for that ankle to heal.
Predicted stat line: 80 total yards, 1 touchdown

WR Allen Robinson: Another week, another leading the Jaguars in targets and receptions. Fellow rookie Allen Hurns is catching up to him, but Robinson has had better hands over the past few weeks and is a bigger threat in red zone opportunities. He was so close to getting his first touchdown last season, it's only a matter of time.
Predicted stat line: 7 catches, 75 yards, 1 touchdown

K Josh Scobee: Rookie quarterback Blake Bortles has finally come back down to earth and he's struggling in the red zone. I don't think Bortles goes two weeks in a row without touchdowns, but I do think he'll stall more often he doesn't. That means Scobee is in line for another big week.
Predicted stat line: 3-for-3 field goals, 11 points total

Sit 'Em

RB Toby Gerhart: Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley admitted that the running back position is an open competition on Monday. That's... not good for a guy like Gerhart who was supposed to be the "bell cow" back in 2014.
Predicted stat line: 50 total yards, 0 touchdown

WR Cecil Shorts III: He's 50/50 to make it back from injury, but even if he comes back against the Titans, younger guys like Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns are outplaying him. He's hampered and he'll probably only get the third-most snaps compared to other receivers.
Predicted stat line: 40 yards, 0 touchdowns

TE Clay Harbor: Yes, the Titans have been bad against opposing tight ends in recent weeks, giving up six receptions, 64.5 yards, and 1.5 touchdowns per game in the past two weeks. But if anyone is going to get a fluke tight end score, it's goal line threat Nic Jacobs.
Predicted stat line: 35 yards, 0 touchdowns
