The Jacksonville Jaguars are in desperate need of a get right game.

The Cincinnati Bengals are winless, without their top two cornerbacks, and have the worst run defense in the league.

On paper, this looks like a game where several Jacksonville players could be in for a big day, but let’s take a closer look at who you should stash away on your DraftKings roster.

RB Leonard Fournette

Literally everything is screaming for Fournette to have a big day. The Bengals defense is in ruins — their top two cornerbacks are out and they’re giving up an astounding 184.5 yards per game on the ground. The Jaguars will want to limit the amount of pressure they put on Gardner Minshew to win this week, so I think a big chunk of the offensive game plan is going to involve Fournette both on the ground and through the air.

Fantasy projection: 4 receptions, 135 yards, and 1 touchdown

QB Gardner Minshew

Just because they want to keep the pressure off Gardner Minshew to win all by himself doesn’t mean he’ll be neutered. The blueprint is there to beat him — contain him in the pocket and take away DJ Chark. But the Bengals don’t have the defensive personnel to execute the same strategy he saw last week.

Fantasy projection: 260 total yards, 2 touchdowns

K Josh Lambo

The Bengals are giving up the fourth most points to opposing kickers in the league right now. With an emphasis on the run game, drives could easily stall within the 30-yard line and Lambo could rack up the points.

Fantasy projection: 3-for-3 field goals, 3-for-3 extra points, 12 total points
