QBDavid Garrard
165 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 20 rush yards, 1 INT
Garrard turned in a steady performance last week, easing some of the concerns about his starting position. Still, 163 yards passing yards make it difficult to justify a spot on most fantasy rosters, especially if that's considered a good day.
RBMaurice Jones-Drew
3 rec, 35 rec yards, 1 rec TD, 105 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Jones-Drew finally broke out last week, posting two touchdowns after being shut out in the first three weeks of the season. The woeful Bills are on tap, making him a great start this week.
RBRashad Jennings
1 rec, 5 rec yards, 15 rush yards
Jennings saw just five touches last week, while Maurice Jones-Drew handled the bulk in a close game. Jennings has little fantasy value except as an MJD handcuff.
WRMike Sims-Walker
2 rec, 35 yards
Sims-Walker was held without a catch last week for the second this season, raising legitimate concern among fantasy owners. Perhaps it is time to cut the supposed top receiver on this club.
WRMike Thomas
4 rec, 50 yards
Thomas should be considered the most reliable, and best fantasy receiver on the Jags right now. He's averaging just over four catches for 50 yards per game, though he has yet to score.
TEMarcedes Lewis
3 rec, 30 yards
The Jags will continue to run their offense behind Maurice Jones-Drew as much as they can, making anyone involved in the passing game a fantasy liability. Lewis does have three touchdowns so far, however.
KJosh Scobee
2 PATs, 1 FG
Scobee's game-winning 59-yarder last week was also the longest of his career and the second 50-plus yard field goal he has made this season. The Jaguars won't give him many kicking opportunities, but Scobee won't miss the few he does earn.
Defense
3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
It's the movable force meeting the stoppable object. The Jaguars haven't done a lot to limit opponents either in the passing or running game. Then again, the Bills strike fear into no one.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBRyan Fitzpatrick
140 pass yards, 1 INT
Fitzpatrick threw two touchdowns to zero interceptions last week, but a paltry 128 yards won't send fantasy players running to the waiver wires. He's the quarterback of a bad run-first offense. Enough said.
RBFred Jackson
1 rec, 10 rec yards, 50 rush yards, 1 rush TD
With Lynch out of the picture, Jackson was named the Bills' starter, which should be worth a tad more production than Spiller.
RBC.J. Spiller
3 rec, 20 rec yards, 35 rush yards
Spiller had three touches for 15 total yards last week. His role will hopefully expand now that Marshawn Lynch has been traded.
WRLee Evans
4 rec, 50 yards
Evans would have been shut out of a reception last week if not for a late reception. It's tough to blame him for his poor numbers when you consider the supporting cast. The Jags' secondary should offer a reprieve, but can the Bills really be helped?
WRRoscoe Parrish
2 rec, 20 yards
Parrish should have better numbers this week against a bad Jaguars secondary, but unless you are really in a bye-week pinch, how much can trust a guy coming off a one-catch performance?
WRSteve Johnson
2 rec, 20 yards
Johnson has caught touchdown passes in the Bills' last two outings, so it's encouraging that Johnson appears to be one of the top targets when the offense does approach the goal line. Otherwise, there isn't much to see here.
TEShawn Nelson
2 rec, 15 yards
Nelson returns from suspension this week and should be a free pickup in almost every fantasy league. There's no reason to trust any Bills offensive player at this points, however.
KRian Lindell
1 PAT, 2 FGs
Lindell kicked two extra points and had no field goal attempts last week. The Bills simply don't approach the goal line enough to make Lindell worth owning.
Defense
2 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
The Bills remain the only team without an interception this season, and are giving up over 30 points a game. The Jaguars' offense is bad, but the Bills' defense may be worse.
