Week 12: at Arizona Cardinals
All TE vs ARI
FBG says: Neutral matchup. Blake Bortles struggled mightily last week as he could only muster 154 passing yards and one touchdown against the Browns. Bortles also coughed up two fumbles, losing one. The Jaguars are a run-first team as Bortles has had very much of a game-manager role for most of this season, passing for over 300 yards in just one game and only one game with more than one touchdown. Bortles has had exactly one passing touchdown in each of his last five games, so don't look for much upside out of him on a regular basis. Marquise Lee has been the only reliable receiving option for the Jaguars this season, but he was dealing with a knee injury for most of the last week and had a relatively mediocre game because of it. Lee is averaging just over 50 receiving yards per game this season but has only one game with over 80 receiving yards and just two touchdowns. Overall, this is a passing offense to avoid for all intents and purposes.
The Cardinals passing defense has definitely been exploitable this season as they have given up the fifth and sixth most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks and wide receivers respectively. Most of this production, however, has come from receivers NOT facing Patrick Peterson--as Peterson has been one of the best shutdown cornerbacks in the league. Marquise Lee should see the pleasure of facing Peterson this week, meaning the rest of the Jaguars receivers should have a decent shot at some production. Rookie Dede Westbrook finally saw the first catches of his career last week, but he was out-snapped by their other rookie receiver Keelan Cole. Westbrook has game-changing speed, so if he can get more snaps, he could be a boom or bust candidate for a big play against the struggling Cardinals safeties.
