Week 14: vs Los Angeles Chargers

All TE vs LAC

FBG says: Tough matchup. It was terrible timing for Nick Foles to have a bad outing last week as questions were already swirling about his capability to start over Gardner Minshew in this offense. After completing only half of his 14 pass attempts for 93 yards, throwing one interception, and losing two fumbles, Foles was benched at halftime in favor of Minshew to finish out the game. The Minshew era has now been revived as he will start this week against the Chargers. Minshew's mobility adds another dimension to this passing offense, but he did struggle to throw a consistent deep ball for most of his tenure as the starter earlier this season. D.J. Chark should continue to head up this passing offense, and he will be looking to get back on track after failing to exceed 50 receiving yards in three of his last four games. It has actually been Leonard Fournette to lead the team in targets in each of the last two games as he is on pace to nearly double his career-best level of production as a receiver. Minshew didn't quite feed Fournette double-digit targets on a weekly basis, but he did keep Fournette regularly involved and will likely continue supporting very fantasy-friendly stat lines for his star running back. The Chargers passing defense has been a top-tier unit for most of the season, especially in recent weeks as they have given up just the second-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks since Week 8. Since Week 4, only two quarterbacks have exceeded 220 yards and two have exceeded one passing touchdown when facing the Chargers. Over that span, this team has also forced one interception per game in all but two outings. On top of their success, things are only looking up as All-Pro safety Derwin James returned to the field last week. Having James along with shut-down cornerback Casey Hayward will make it tough on any receiver lining up against the Chargers. While Hayward did uncharacteristically cough up two touchdowns to Courtland Sutton last week, his shadow coverage will still represent a very difficult matchup for D.J. Chark this week. The Los Angeles defensive line has only managed one sack in their last two games, but this group--led by Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa--has the ability to wreak havoc on these weaker Jaguars offensive tackles. Overall, Gardner Minshew should have his work cut out for him as he tries to right the ship for this Jaguars passing offense.
