Fantasy Player Projections
Jacksonville Stadium | Sunday, October 18 | 1:00 p.m. EST (FOX)
Pick: Jaguars 13, Rams 10
165 pass yards, 1 INTBulger could be worth a desperation play as a bye-week replacement since the Jaguars' pass defense is that bad. Otherwise, avoid like the plague.
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 110 rush yards, 1 rush TDSomehow, Jackson has yet to find the end zone in 2009. Don't expect the one-man offensive show to be shut out much longer. (Though, we did say that last week.)
6 rec, 60 yardsAvery blew up last week for 87 yards receiving and a touchdown. The beginning of something special or a fantasy fluke? We're leaning towards the latter.
4 rec, 40 yardsNot worth a play in any fantasy format thanks to the Rams' anemic offense.
1 rec, 15 yardsThe rookie out of Texas Tech caught five passes for 43 yards in his first substantial action. But it's too soon to count on him for anything substantial on a weekly basis.
4 rec, 30 yardsNothing more than a bye-week replacement.
1 PAT, 1 FGThe sorry state of the Rams undercuts whatever fantasy value Brown has.
1 sackIn most standard scoring leagues, the Rams' defense ranks No. 32 out of 32. Yeah, so stay away.
160 pass yardsThe last time Garrard went up against a bottom feeder like the Rams -- Week 4 against the Titans -- the quarterback threw for 323 yards and three touchdowns. This week, he's a solid fantasy QB2.
3 rec, 40 rec yards, 75 rush yards, 1 rush TDMJD should deliver in the wake of consecutive tepid performances. The fourth-year tailback must be licking his chops about going against the lowly Rams.
4 rec, 55 yardsHe's been consistent -- with 22 catches for 306 yards -- but still hasn't managed to score a touchdown in five games.
4 rec, 40 yardsSims-Walker missed Sunday's game for violating a team rule. He's presumably back in the lineup for the St. Louis game.
3 rec, 25 yardsAwful game. Good game. Awful game. Good game. Awful game. If you believe in patterns, start Lewis on Sunday.
1 PAT, 2 FGsYou're not going to get many kicking opportunities on the wrong end of a 41-0 blowout. Start him against the Rams, when the opportunities should be more available.
2 sacks, 1 INTThe third-worst pass defense and a lower-end rush defense might not be a smart play against most NFL teams. But against the Rams? Go for it!
