Week 3: vs Tennessee Titans
FBG says: Tough matchup. Gardner Minshew held his own through his second NFL game, completing 70 percent of his passes for 213 yards and a touchdown. He played very poorly through the first half of last week's game, but he improved during the second half to bring the Jaguars within a few feet of a victory. He still has plenty of room for improvement, though, as Minshew held on to the ball far too long while making a few terrible throws that could have otherwise been big plays. D.J. Chark was his favorite target this week and hauled in the only touchdown of the game for Jacksonville. Chark has started hot this season with 11 receptions for 201 yards and two touchdowns, but he was listed on the injury report with an ankle issue. While he is tentatively expected to play on Thursday, keep an eye on his status leading into game time. Both Chris Conley was also on that injury report and could be at risk of sitting Thursday, but as of now, he is expected to play. Conley has had a solid start with Minshew under center with 12 target netting out to 10 receptions for 170 yards and a touchdown. Dede Westbrook, on the other hand, hasn't had a great connection with Minshew to start. He managed to catch just one-of-five targets for three yards last week--this coming after amassing just 30 yards with a touchdown in Week 1. Leonard Fournette has seen a consistent workload through the air though, seeing six targets in each game while hauling in a total of eight receptions for 68 yards to start this season. The Titans defense had another strong showing against the Colts last week as this secondary continues to impress with their playmaking abilities. The Titans have allowed the second-fewest passing yards per game (182.5) and have forced a league-leading (tied) five turnovers, four of which are interceptions. Logan Ryan has two of those interceptions while also ranking tied for fourth in the league with four passes defended and notching 1.5 sacks to bolster his early-season resume. He has looked like the best cornerback for the Titans and will give slot receiver Dede Westbrook a hard time this week. The other Jaguars wide receivers will also be in for challenges against this Titans secondary, particularly given the strong support coming from these safeties. The Titans pass rush has also been above average with strong showings from the veteran defensive end Cameron Wake and linebacker Jayon Brown. The Jaguars offensive line will have its work cut out for them to defend Gardner Minshew while trying to find open receivers against what should be tight coverage from the Titans secondary.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 2 vs HOU (5 / 4 / 73 / 0 rec)
Conley only saw five targets on Sunday but he largely made the most of them. He dropped one 3rd down pass on the offensive's final drive, but the good far outweighed the bad as he turned in a four catch, 73-yard performance. Conley's best play came on a 31-yard deep shot connection from Minshew, the offense's biggest gain of the day. He beat the defensive back on the release to gain separation and then battled physical coverage to not only catch the pass but also keep both feet in bounds. He has become a consistent contributor this far.
2019 Week 1 vs KC (7 / 6 / 97 / 1 rec)
Conley led the team in targets with seven, which he turned into six catches for 97 yards and a touchdown. After a quiet preseason he made the most of his starter reps on Sunday and provided a safety blanket for both Foles and Minshew, showing the ability to become the team's possessions receiver who they hope can move the chains. This was evident on his 3rd-and-18 catch in the first quarter, as he shielded himself and the ball away from the defender to ensure a first down for Jacksonville.
