QBBlaine Gabbert

Blaine Gabbert

185 pass yards, pass TD, 2 INTs

It's not clear whether Gabbert's removal from last Thursday's loss to Indianapolis stemmed from his injured shoulder or his poor play. Regardless, all signs point to Gabbert playing this week -– for the Jaguars, not for fantasy owners.

RBRashad Jennings

Rashad Jennings

43 rush yards

Jennings has yet to average 4.0 yards per carry in a game since taking over for Maurice Jones-Drew and now must face a Texans defense allowing just 85.6 rushing yards a game. #NoChance

WRLaurent Robinson

Laurent Robinson

5 rec, 64 yards, rec TD

Robinson finally looked like a No. 1 receiver in Week 10, catching nine of the 15 passes thrown to him for 77 yards. Blaine Gabbert will continue to look for Robinson in a game in which Jacksonville will throw all four quarters.

WRCecil Shorts

Cecil Shorts

3 rec, 44 yards

Shorts makes his name on the big play, but Houston's stingy defense does not give up many of them. The Texans will view Shorts as the biggest threat in the passing game. That means he may see a lot of Johnathan Joseph.

WRJustin Blackmon

Justin Blackmon

2 rec, 23 yards

Blackmon has played as much as any rookie receiver this year; he just hasn't been able to get open or consistently catch Blaine Gabbert's eye. Fantasy owners should pass on Blackmon this week against Houston. Easy decision.

TEMarcedes Lewis

Marcedes Lewis

2 rec, 27 yards

Hitting the 50-yard receiving mark separates the acceptable from the unacceptable when it comes to fantasy tight ends. Lewis eclipsed the mark in Week 1 but hasn't found his way back since.

KJosh Scobee

Josh Scobee

PAT, FG

An excerpt from "101 reasons why Josh Scobee is not a worthy fantasy kicker" … No. 42: He has scored a combined 10 points in his last three games against the Texans.

DEFENSE

INT, Sack

The Texans gained 411 yards against Jacksonville in the Week 2 meeting, which resulted in 27 points. The Jaguars collected no sacks or turnovers.

QBMatt Schaub

Matt Schaub

234 pass yards, 2 pass TDs, INT

Schaub averaged just 3.65 yards per attempt in last week's miserable affair in Chicago. Blame it on the rain! Good thing this game will be played in sunny (and dry) Houston.

RBArian Foster

Arian Foster

118 rush yards, 2 rush TDs, 3 rec, 24 rec yards

Foster is a beast, plain and simple. He has touched the ball 20-plus times in all but one game this season (Green Bay) and leads the league in touchdowns. He had 147 yards on 34 touches in the first meeting with Jacksonville this year.

WRAndre Johnson

Andre Johnson

9 rec, 106 yards, rec TD

Forget about Johnson's numbers Sunday night; that contest was played in terrible conditions. Johnson should pick up where he left off before the Chicago game, having caught eight or more passes in his previous three games.

WRKevin Walter

Kevin Walter

3 rec, 34 yards

Here is a snapshot of Walter's fantasy productivity from the past month: In three of four games he's been incredibly consistent, with two catches on three targets for between 28-30 yards. Sometimes consistency counts in fantasy; in this case it does not.

TEOwen Daniels

Owen Daniels

4 rec, 57 yards, rec TD

Daniels is tied for sixth among tight ends in touchdowns, having scored in five of the past six weeks. The Jaguars do a good job of defending the pass, but as long as he's healthy Daniels should continue his streak in a game that could get ugly fast.

KShayne Graham

Shayne Graham

5 PATs, FG

Graham's fantasy value will be minimized in a game that has the look of a blowout. The Texans will score touchdowns -– lots of them.

DEFENSE

2 INTs, 3 Sacks, TD

This defense held Chicago to six points in last Monday's game. The Texans will make the Jaguars look foolish.
