Week 15: at Jacksonville Jaguars
FBG says: Bad matchup. It's never easy to project a passing game that's decided to move on from Mark Sanchez. The 32-year-old journeyman stepped in for Alex Smith and Colt McCoy last week and was promptly benched after a horrid showing (6 of 14 for 38 yards and 2 interceptions). Fellow 32-year-old Josh Johnson took his place and will start going forward making his first start since 2011 and his sixth of his career. Johnson's second half was at least encouraging. Johnson completed 11 of his 16 throws for 195 yards, with 1 touchdown and 1 pick, and added a dynamic element on the ground. Still, optimism for this passing game must be kept firmly in check. Johnson has long been a practice squad guy, bouncing around several different rosters and attempting just 193 NFL passes. His Week 14 was a step up from Sanchez's, but he entered the game with a 40-0 deficit and faced tons of prevent defense down the stretch. Washington is shallow at receiver and will be even more so if Jordan Reed and Josh Doctson can't suit up Sunday. Jamison Crowder, Maurice Harris, and Vernon Davis would then lead the charge against Jalen Ramsey, A.J. Bouye, and the Jacksonville defense. With a week to prepare for Johnson and his torn-apart receiving corps, the Jaguars will come in with a massive advantage. It's hard to find any dynamism here, regardless of matchup, and Johnson is likely in for a brutal Sunday. The Jacksonville pass defense has lacked consistency and looked far less suffocating than last year's version. Still, it has all the makings of that dominant unit. There's tons of explosive talent throughout the pass rush and secondary, and quarterbacks rarely have a fun time navigating them. The Jaguars have been able to clamp down on some of 2018's top passers, including Deshaun Watson (12 of 24 for 139 and 1 touchdown), Ben Roethlisberger (27 of 47 for 314 and 2, with 3 picks), and Andrew Luck (33 of 52 for 248 and 1 interception). The pass rush has been inconsistent but tends to rise to the occasion, with 3 sacks of Luck 2 weeks ago and 4 against the Eagles' elite line in Week 8. And the cornerback duo remains stout, with A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey often playing shutdown roles on the outside. There are newfound cracks in this unit, particularly downfield tackling and the coverage by the safeties. But it's still strong enough to be generally feared in fantasy, and Josh Johnson looks like a sitting duck coming into this matchup.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 13 vs PHI (4 / 4 / 50 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Colt McCoy went 4-4 in the first half before going down with a fibula injury. The offense hadn't put any points on the scoreboard prior to his departure. Colt looked relatively sharp in his short stint moving the offense down field. However the production was negated by penalties.
2018 Week 12 vs DAL (24 / 38 / 268 / 2 / 3 pass, 5 / 28 / 0 rush)
Colt McCoy got off to a shaky start against Dallas and never really got in a rhythm. Colt battled all game as he made plays with his feet and arm. He threw two touchdowns on the day as he found Vernon on what seemed to be a post route for fifty-three yards. Then in the third quarter he found Trey Quinn for seven yard score. Three interceptions were the biggest factor in titling this loss as ball security was a major issue. Colt had a horrendous interception in the first quarter on a bad read. That turnover killed a nine play drive. Following the first interception, Colt attempted a screen pass that was picked off by a Dallas defensive lineman. It was telegraphed badly and DeMarcus Lawrence made an easy read to convert the turnover. He added five carries for twenty-eight yards on the day which helped extend plays. Colt didn't make as many'žoff schedule' plays as his mobility would suggest. His aggression has to be more calculated to keep the turnovers at a minimum.
2018 Week 11 vs HOU (6 / 12 / 54 / 1 / 0 pass, 5 / 35 / 0 rush)
Colt McCoy got called upon today after Alex Smith went down with a broken leg. Colt came on in the 3rd quarter and immediately made a positive contribution. He found Jordan Reed for a nine yard touchdown after keeping the drive alive with his legs. Colt ended this game as the second leading rusher for Washington with thirty-five yards. This was an encouraging sign for Washington's offense as it seems Colt can do many of the things Alex brought to the offense. He also seems to be a more willing runner which can only help Washington's offense sustain drives more often.
