Qualcomm Stadium | Sunday, September 19 | 4:15 p.m. EST (CBS)
Pick: Chargers 27, Jaguars 17
205 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 15 rush yards, 2 INTGarrard tossed three touchdown passes in Week 1, but he threw for just 170 yards on 21 attempts in the game. Garrard's attempts will go up in Week 2 against the Chargers, but the touchdowns will go down.
6 rec, 50 rec yards, 105 rush yards, 1 rush TDJones-Drew ran for 98 yards in Week 1, but he will face a Chargers run defense in Week 2 that finished in the bottom half of the league a year ago. As he usually does, expect Jones-Drew to play a big part in the Jaguars' offense in Week 2.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 10 rush yardsJennings is nothing more than Maurice Jones-Drew insurance at this point. He received just four carries in Week 1.
5 rec, 85 yards, 1 TDSims-Walker was shut out by Denver's Champ Bailey in Week 1, but he'll get involved in Week 2.
3 rec, 40 yardsThomas had a big Week 1 performance with six catches for 89 yards, but he is still not as strong a fantasy option as teammate Mike Sims-Walker.
2 rec, 25 yardsLewis caught just two passes for 31 yards in Week 1, but both his receptions went for touchdowns. Lewis could be the Jaguars' top receiving option in the red zone, so he could be worth a gamble this week.
2 PATs, 1 FGThe Jaguars don't figure to put up a lot of points on the road in San Diego, so Scobee's production will be limited this week.
1 sackEven without Vincent Jackson, the Chargers still feature a potent passing offense and can put up some points. Avoid for this week.
280 pass yards, 3 pass TDThe Chargers like to throw the ball and the Jaguars aren't very good at stopping it, so Rivers should have a big performance in Week 2. Expect him to throw multiple touchdown passes.
3 rec, 30 rec yards, 1 rec TDMathews should see the majority of the work for the Chargers in Week 2. If they are able to build a bit of a lead early, he could see a lot of action in the second half.
1 rec, 15 rec yards, 10 rush yardsThe lead back in front of Sproles is the only difference in the Chargers' running game this season, so Sproles will see limited carries and catch a few passes. Use other options this week.
4 rec, 50 yardsFloyd's size gives him an advantage over most cornerbacks, and he should see a few downfield targets. Floyd has some value against a weak Jaguars pass defense.
3 rec, 40 yards, 1 TDNaanee could benefit from the attention paid to the team's other receivers and is a sneaky Week 2 option against a Jacksonville defense that is vulnerable through the air.
2 rec, 35 yardsCrayton will be the Chargers' third receiver in Week 2, so he should see some action out of the slot. Wait to see how he fits into the San Diego offense before rolling with him.
9 rec, 110 yards, 1 TDAs the top option in the Chargers passing game, Gates should be counted on for consistent production on a weekly basis. He should be able to find the end zone against Jacksonville.
3 PATs, 2 FGsKaeding reached double digits in eight games last season and benefits from the Chargers ability to move the ball on the ground and through the air. He should see plenty of opportunities in Week 2.
3 sacks, 2 INTThe Chargers defense was only average a year ago, but the return of Shawne Merriman makes them more dangerous in the pass rush. They have some Week 2 value with Jacksonville on the schedule.
