Week 6: at Dallas Cowboys

All TE vs DAL

FBG says: Neutral matchup. With offensive engine Leonard Fournette sidelined, Blake Bortles is posting some massive stat lines. Since Week 1, he's attempting 45 passes a game and has generated 376 yards or more in each of those matchups but one. Ideally, though, the Jaguars would not be riding him this hard - Bortles remains a shaky, streaky passer prone to terrible turnovers, like last week's pick-six on a routine screen pass. (He added an airmailed interception into heavy coverage later on.) He's made progress as a deep thrower, resulting in a few long strikes to Keelan Cole, Dede Westbrook, and Donte Moncrief. But overall, he remains a mediocre passer in the traditional sense. At times, as shown in Week 4, he's capable of captaining an effective small-ball game, beating soft coverages with quick-hitters to his backs and slot men. But he's still bleeding giveaways and failing to make a consistent impact before garbage time sets in. As a result, his talented wideouts are also shaky week-to-week plays, wholly dependent upon which Bortles shows up that day. This offense is of the most frustrating type in all of fantasy football, long on volume and opportunity but short on projectable efficiency. And the Jaguars' injury bug has now spread to the tight end spot, where Austin Seferian-Jenkins was just placed on injured reserve. Converted wideout Niles Paul is the next man up, and he impressed against the Chiefs, catching 7 of 9 passes for 65 yards. Last Sunday notwithstanding, the Dallas pass defense has been a good-not-great unit thus far. The pass rush has been ferocious, notching three or more sacks in every game but last week's, and they're propping up a ho-hum secondary nicely. There's definitely been one stud patrolling the defensive backfield: cornerback Byron Jones has shifted from safety and posted a fantastic start in coverage. He played a big role in shutting down Odell Beckham Jr. in Week 2, and he played better last week than the stat sheet indicates. DeAndre Hopkins simply won several contested catches, which is nothing for Jones to be ashamed of. This isn't some fantasy-shutdown unit to run away from - they've given up an average of 288 yards over their past 4 games. But they're at least smothering quarterbacks and making things difficult for opposing attacks.
