Week 16: vs Tennessee Titans

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Blake Bortles suffered a mid-foot sprain last week, and since the Jaguars go on Thursday Night Football this week, it seems likely that Chad Henne will be back under center for Jacksonville. However, head coach Gus Bradley said on Tuesday that Bortles is progressing rapidly in rehab - the situation is in flux as of Wednesday afternoon. Neither quarterback (Bortles: 253/416 for 2,675 yards passing, 10 TD passes and 17 interceptions thrown, Henne: 42/78 for 492 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown) has been particularly effective as a fantasy starter, so we'd advise avoiding this situation during fantasy championship week. The Titans' pass D is ranked 18th in the NFL averaging 239.1 net passing yards allowed per game, with 24 passing scores given out vs. 12 interceptions and 34 sacks generated so far (15th- and 13th-ranked in the NFL, respectively). Last week, the Jets tossed 16/28 for 163 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions at Tennessee (three sacks taken for-16 yards), while two games ago Houston posted 13/19 for 135 net yards, zero TDs and zero interceptions thrown. This looks like a neutral matchup for the Jaguars, but don't get too excited about this cellar-dwelling passing attack.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs NYG (3 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)

Lewis is perennially underused by this offense, but his numbers are going to be especially low when the offense itself isn't functioning as designed. His first target became a reception, but it only went into the flat for a short gain late in the third quarter. Late in the fourth quarter, Lewis caught his second target of the game on a short curl route.

2014 Week 14 vs HOU (4 / 3 / 69 / 0 rec)

The veteran tight end was forced to wait until the second quarter for his first target. He caught that target on an out route before turning down the sideline for a first down. Later in the second quarter, Lewis caught his second target after Blake Bortles extended the play into the left flat. In the fourth quarter, Lewis caught a screen pass that he carried down the field for a big gain.

2014 Week 15 vs BAL (3 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)

Lewis saw his first target on the Jaguars' first drive of the game. He was wide open on a crossing route after play action, but dropped the ball. Bortles went back to Lewis for a short completion midway through the first quarter. In the fourth quarter, Lewis caught a deep out route for a first down after running away from a defender in man coverage.
