Week 8: vs Jacksonville Jaguars

All WR vs JAX

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. This is the first meeting of these AFC South rivals so expect a hard-fought game on both sides. Marcus Mariota played solidly against the Colts last weekend, with 22/37 for 232 yards passing, two TDs with zero interceptions thrown, and he took three sacks for -25 yards. He hit tight end Delanie Walker for one of the scores (eight targets for 7/84/1 receiving - Walker led the team in receiving last week), and also hit left tackle Taylor Lewan on a tackle-eligible play (one target for 1/10/1) for the second TD. Tajae Sharpe (knee injur) was limited in practice Tuesday, October 25 after posting six for 4/59/0 receiving vs. the Colts last weekend. Rishard Matthews (seven for 4/37/0) and DeMarco Murray (five for 3/20/0) both chipped in around the edges. Mariota is now sixth among all fantasy quarterbacks with 139/226 for 1,604 yards passing, 12 TDs and six interceptions thrown, with 29/210/1 rushing to his credit. The Titans' pass offense is going strong entering the heart of the NFL season. Jacksonville allowed 23/37 for 200 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions with zero sacks taken to Derek Carr last week; two weeks ago they allowed 30/49 for 297 net yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, and had one sack for -5 yards at Chicago. From Week Five to Week Seven of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), Jacksonville has averaged 14.8 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (fifth-least in the NFL); and 26.2 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (12th-most); with 2.7 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (third-least). This looks like a tough matchup for Mariota and company, as Delanie Walker is such a big part of this offense, and Jacksonville isn't giving up much to tight ends.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 5 vs MIA (4 / 2 / 13 / 1 rec)

Andre Johnson continued to pop up on the radar despite his lack of snaps and overall contribution to the receiving stat-page. Johnson was targeted four times and hauled in only two receptions, but one of those happened to be the first touchdown of the game from five yards out on a crossing route through the middle of the end zone. Johnson was wide open in the end zone on the play before this, and managed to get open gain to haul in the score. Regardless of his two touchdowns on the year, Johnson still is still a no-factor for fantasy purposes.

2016 Week 3 vs OAK (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

While Andre Johnson is barely getting on the field for one-third of the team's snaps, he is constantly being looked at in big game situations. For the 2nd week in a row, Johnson was targeted in the end zone and caught what would have been the game-tying touchdown. However, Johnson pushed off cornerback TJ Carrie and was flagged for the penalty. Johnson finished the day with a blank statline. Even with his touchdown upside, Johnson continues to be tough to roster.

2016 Week 2 vs DET (2 / 1 / 9 / 1 rec)

Andre Johnson was looked to only 4 times in this game, but his 1 reception for 9 yards was just what the Titans need as he hauled in a very tough catch for the game-winning touchdown. Johnson also had another pass caught right at the goal line earlier in that game-winning drive, but it was called back due to an offensive pass interference penalty called on Rishard Matthews. While Johnson is providing quite the value as a veteran presence for this young squad of Titans receivers, he doesn't bring much to the table in terms of fantasy value on a weekly basis.

2016 Week 1 vs MIN (7 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)

Andre Johnson was only targeted twice in the first half, receiving his first reception near the end of the third quarter as he showed superior hand strength to haul in a well defended 16-yard pass. One of those first half targets was what looked like a sure-fire touchdown, but it was just slightly overthrown to where Johnson had to lunge for it. Johnson did get his hands on the ball and should have had the catch, but it barely slipped beyond his reach.
