Jaguars vs. Colts fantasy football advice: Week 4 start 'em, sit 'em

Yes, the Jaguars suffered one of their worst defeats in franchise history against the Patriots. But they still had several players posting big numbers compared to their relative values in FanDuel.

Editor's Note: FanDuel is running a $2,000,000 fantasy football league in week 4. The top 90,800 teams win cash with $150,000 paid to first place on Sunday. Join now!

The Jacksonville Jaguars went into a tailspin shortly after halftime against the New England Patriots. It snowballed away from a one-possession game to a two-possession game to a God only knows how this is possible type of game.

But... even amidst a franchise record for points given up in a single game, the Jaguars still had several players posting good days relative to how much their salary was in FanDuel.

Nearly 300 yards and two touchdowns with just one interception was an above-average performance for a quarterback in Blake Bortles who had an average value assigned to him. And a garbage time touchdown gave Clay Harbor owners a lot of value for the lowest-priced tight end coming into Week 3.

So, who should be sitting and who should be starting for the Jaguars matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4?

Start 'em

Allen Robinson will be a good play at middle-of-the-road salary of $6,500 against a Colts secondary that's giving up 261 yards in the air per game and is 24th in the league in yards given up to wide receivers. Blake Bortles will get his usual 250 yards and two touchdowns, so he won't do anything spectacular, but he's worth his below-average salary for a quarterback at $6,800.

I think this is the game Marcedes Lewis finally does something worth a damn, so his league-low $4,700 salary in FanDuel is worth it. The Jaguars have shown more and more each week in getting him involved, but Blake just hasn't hit him in the right place at the right time. This week, I think he does it.

Jason Myers, at a league-low $4,500, will also be a good place to save a little bit of your roster salary. He's got a strong leg and Lucas Oil Stadium is a very kicker-friendly stadium.

Sit 'em

The Jaguars offensive line is banged up, so even with T.J. Yeldon having a moderate salary of $6,400, I wouldn't get him.

And the defense has half of their starters injured, so don't even think about getting them -- even with a cheap price tag of $4,000.
