Jacksonville Stadium | Sunday, October 03 | 4:05 p.m. EST (CBS)
Pick: Colts 31, Jaguars 10
260 pass yards, 3 pass TD, 1 INTManning is one of three quarterbacks with more than 1,000 yards passing and leads the league with nine passing TDs. The Jags have given up big chunks of yardage through the air so far, making this week's matchup a good one.
3 rec, 30 rec yards, 50 rush yards, 1 rush TDAddai never took off last week against Denver, possibly due to the knee injury that limited him in practice. With another week to rest, he should bounce back against a poor Jaguars run defense.
1 rec, 20 rec yards, 30 rush yardsThe Colts stuck to the passing game last week, and Brown had just seven carries for 12 yards as a result. The ground game could bounce back against Jacksonville.
6 rec, 75 yards, 1 TDWith Champ Bailey covering him last Sunday, Wayne's numbers took a slight dip. While his four catches for 65 yards may have been out of character, he should bounce back against a weak Jacksonville secondary.
3 rec, 35 yardsGarcon did not play last week due to a hamstring injury. Still, Collie is playing himself into a No. 2 receiver role that Garcon will have trouble overcoming even if he is healthy.
4 rec, 50 yards, 1 TDCollie recorded his second 160-plus yard receiving game last week, catching 12 passes out of a whopping 16 targets. As long as Pierre Garcon remains out of the lineup, Collie will keep garnering a lot of attention from Peyton Manning.
5 rec, 50 yards, 1 TDClark saw a lot of attention from the Broncos defense last week and still managed five receptions for 44 yards. Opponents play with fire by committing too much attention to any one target, so don't expect Sunday's average output to become a norm.
3 PATs, 1 FGThe Colts' offense is producing too efficiently for Vinatieri's fantasy owners. He has just four field-goal attempts this season, and none beyond 40 yards.
3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 FumbleThe Colts' defense has given up at least one big performance in either the running or passing game in all three games they have played this season. Their strength clearly lies with the offense.
170 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 15 rush yards, 1 INTGarrard has been awful this season, but Luke McCown's residence on injured reserve means that Garrard will remain under center for the time being. The Colts at least put up mild resistance against pass, making Garrard one to avoid.
4 rec, 30 rec yards, 95 rush yards, 1 rush TDHe was effective running the ball with 88 yards on 22 carries last week. However, Jones-Drew's six receptions through three games pale in comparison to the 13 he had last season. David Garrard's ineffectiveness significantly hampers MJD's PPR value.
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 15 rush yardsJennings' three touches last week only re-emphasized the fact that Maurice Jones-Drew is the workhorse. Unless MJD gets hurt or it's garbage time, Jennings has basement fantasy value.
5 rec, 65 yardsSims-Walker was held to two receptions last week after posting 10 the week before. Unless there's an upgrade at quarterback, expect the inconsistencies to continue.
4 rec, 40 yards, 1 TDThomas is dangerous in space, but needs David Garrard to get him the ball first. Thomas was targeted six times last week against the Eagles, but only hauled in two passes on the day.
3 rec, 30 yardsLewis was quiet last week, posting 15 yards receiving after gaining 70 the week before. He's an OK fantasy tight end prospect who would be much better if he could get some more consistency from the quarterback position.
1 PAT, 1 FGScobee is 4-for-4 on field goals this season, all from beyond 40 yards. The Jags won't put him in position to kick often, but at least he's making them.
1 sack, 1 INTThe Jaguars have given up as many passing touchdowns as any team in the league and now they have to face Peyton Manning, the league's current passing touchdown leader. Nothing about this is a good matchup.
