Pick: Chiefs 20, Jaguars 13
Kansas City Chiefs
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBTodd Bouman
135 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 10 rush yards, 1 INT
Garrard suffered a concussion in the first half of Monday night's loss and Trent Edwards is hurt as well. That leaves as the likely starter somebody named Todd Bouman. Stay away.
RBMaurice Jones-Drew
4 rec, 25 rec yards, 55 rush yards
Jones-Drew has been only average the last couple weeks and he faces a stout Chiefs run defense in Week 7.
WRMike Sims-Walker
3 rec, 35 yards
Sims-Walker had another disappointing game last week, so do not hesitate to put him on the bench again this week -- especially if starting QB David Garrard sits out.
WRMike Thomas
4 rec, 40 yards, 1 TD
Thomas caught a season-high eight passes in Week 6 and will be a decent option this week against a Chiefs defense that is giving up nearly 250 passing yards per game.
TEMarcedes Lewis
3 rec, 35 yards
Lewis was quiet last week, but he is a decent option this week against a Chiefs defense that struggles to stop the pass. Make sure he stays in your lineup.
KJosh Scobee
1 PAT, 2 FGs
Scobee has already kicked 11 field goals this seaon, but do not expect him to score much in what figures to be a low-scoring game.
Defense
1 sack
Jacksonville's defense is tied with Houston for the most points allowed this season. That should be enough to get you looking in another direction.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBMatt Cassel
215 pass yards, 2 pass TD, 5 rush yards
Cassel has thrown three touchdown passes in two of his last three games, and he will face a Jacksonville pass defense in Week 7 that is ranked 28th in the league. Cassel's matchup and recent play make him a fringe starter in standard leagues this week.
RBJamaal Charles
2 rec, 25 rec yards, 1 rec TD, 75 rush yards
Charles recorded 100 total yards last week for the fourth time in five games. He has remained productive despite splitting the carries with Thomas Jones, so keep using him.
RBThomas Jones
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 55 rush yards
Jones had a big game in Week 6, and the Chiefs offense is allowing for both he and Jamaal Charles to be effective. Jones is worth a start this week.
WRDwayne Bowe
8 rec, 105 yards, 1 TD
Just a week after dropping a couple key passes in a loss to the Colts, Bowe exploded with his best game of the season. The Chiefs have had more success passing the ball lately, so Bowe is a decent option this week against a poor Jacksonville secondary.
WRDexter McCluster
2 rec, 20 yards
McCluster has been held under 20 yards in four of his five games this season, so it's hard to recommend starting him this week despite a favorable matchup.
TETony Moeaki
4 rec, 45 yards
Moeaki did not do much in Week 6, but he has a chance to get back on track this week against the Jaguars' weak defense.
KRyan Succop
2 PATs, 2 FGs
Succop's production has been up and down this season, so use a more consistent option if available.
Defense
1 sack, 1 INT
The Chiefs defense has forced just five turnovers this season, but they will be a sleeper pick if the turnover-prone Trent Edwards starts at QB for the opping Jaguars in Week 7.
