Jacksonville vs. Dolphins fantasy football picks: The good, the bad, the ugly

Going up against a better defense in Miami for their Week 2 opponent, playing any Jaguars players in fantasy could be tricky. But for how low-priced the players will be, there's value out there.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are gearing up to play the Miami Dolphins and while some things went how we expected (T.J. Yeldon did very well with the chances he was given and the tight ends were a non-factor), some didn't (the defense played extremely well -- giving up 13 points, making one interception, and getting two sacks).

Against the Dolphins, I can't imagine any player other than Yeldon being a good play straight up. However, if you're going to put your budget to other positions on the roster, a guy like Rashad Greene or Allen Robinson can probably be had for good value... and could sneak a score or two on your roster.

The good

T.J. Yeldon. He's good and Washington did a great job showing vulnerabilities in the middle of the Dolphins defensive line. Couple that with the fact that the Dolphins secondary is far better than the Panthers. This will be a game where Yeldon gets far more than the 12 carries he got last week. I'm excited to see what he does with it.

The bad

Blake Bortles. Speaking of the Dolphins secondary, Bortles is going to have a tough time on Sunday. Even at what will likely be a low salary, don't add him to your roster.

The ugly

Marcedes Lewis and Clay Harbor. These two will get more targets and receptions than they did last week (zero and zero) but I don't think it amounts to much. The Dolphins have a very good defense and with the way the Jaguars receivers and Blake Bortles played against the Panthers, it wouldn't surprise me to see another week of double-teamed tight ends and forcing the receivers to get separation and Bortles to make throws outside.
