The Jacksonville Jaguars grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory as a failed two-point conversion was the difference between 1-1 and 0-2. Gardner Minshew was impressive (for a sixth round rookie making his first career start) and the receivers were again good. Their stat lines weren’t terribly impressive, but the starting trio of Chris Conley, DJ Chark, and Dede Westbrook are filling the void better than I thought they would.
But now we have the Tennessee Titans coming to town in a game that will likely be low scoring, defensive driven, and come down to the final possession.
Who are some players you should stash away on your DraftKings roster? Let’s take a look.
I was absolutely burned by this pick in Week 1, but with Yannick Ngakoue back and Jalen Ramsey putting the spotlight on himself, I think this is a game where the defense just plays lights out. That locker room is playing for each other and I think they come out aggressive and pile on the sacks. I would also bet good money on Ramsey getting a pick-six.
Fantasy projection: 3 sacks, 1 interception, 1 touchdown
RB Leonard Fournette
Listen, I don’t like it any more than you do but Fournette is a bell cow back and opportunities will lead to production. Plus, the Titans have a stellar pass defense (allowing just 182.5 yards per game, best for No. 2 in the league) and I doubt that the coaches have let that go unnoticed. I think the plan will be to feed Fournette and I think he gets his first touchdown of the season.
Fantasy projection: 25 total touches, 120 total yards, 1 touchdown
K Josh Lambo
Again, the Titans have a good defense. They’ve allowed just 15 points a game to offenses I would say — for better or worse — are about the same as the Jaguars. We’ll drive down the field, but I think we’ll see our fair share of field goal tries out of Lambo.
Fantasy projection: 3-for-3 with one 50+ yard kick
