Week 4: at Jacksonville Jaguars
All WR vs JAX
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Andrew Luck threw for one more yard passing than Philip Rivers last week, and had one more passing TD (24/347 for 331 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown) as the Colts defeated the Chargers 26-22 during Week Two. While Donte Moncrief (shoulder injury/fractured scapula out four-to-six weeks) was sidelined, T.Y. Hilton came to the forefront for Indianapolis with 11 targets for 8/174/1 receiving. Tight end Jack Doyle continued his strong play with six targets for 65 yards receiving, while Dwayne Allen dropped a possible TD with five for 3/35/0 - nobody else on the team went over 30 yards receiving on the day. The Colts' passing attack is going strong entering Week Four.
The Jaguars' pass defense is ranked seventh in the NFL right now, averaging 201.7 net passing yards allowed per game, with six TD passes given up vs. a low two interceptions and a mediocre six sacks generated to date. Last week, Joe Flacco was frustrated by the Jaguars (29/40 for 199 net yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -15 yards). Over the first three weeks of the season, Jacksonville has averaged 23.1 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (ninth-most in the NFL); and 26.6 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (10th-most); with 4.9 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (11th-least). This is a so-so pass defense overall.
Luck and company are capable of explosive games, and they have a neutral matchup to work with in front of the Londoners this weekend.
