Jacksonville Jaguars
vs
San Diego Chargers
EverBank Field | Sunday, Oct. 20 | 1 PM EST (CBS)

San Diego Chargers

    1. Philip Rivers
    2. Philip
      Rivers
      QB
    3. PASS YDS279
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    You might assume Jacksonville's pass defense is terrible, but it allows just 7.2 YPA. The Rivers resurgence is for real, but he's not a slam dunk this week.

    1. Ryan Mathews
    2. Ryan
      Mathews
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS103
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS17
    6. REC TD0

    Mathews had his best game of the season last week, running for 102 yards on 22 carries. He's in for another big day against a Jacksonville defense that surrenders 4.8 yards per carry.

    1. Danny Woodhead
    2. Danny
      Woodhead
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS34
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS48
    6. REC TD0

    Woodhead caught all five of his targets for 47 yards last week. If he can push up toward 10 carries, he could be in for a big day.

    1. Keenan Allen
    2. Keenan
      Allen
      WR
    3. REC YDS88
    4. REC TD1

    The rookie had a monster game, catching nine passes for 107 yards and a TD. He has WR3 potential for the rest of the season.

    1. Vincent Brown
    2. Vincent
      Brown
      WR
    3. REC YDS64
    4. REC TD0

    Brown caught only two passes for 31 yards last week and was outshined by teammate Keenan Allen. I prefer the latter for the rest of the year.

    1. Antonio Gates
    2. Antonio
      Gates
      TE
    3. REC YDS54
    4. REC TD0

    Jacksonville allows 10.7 fantasy points per game to tight ends, the seventh most in the league. That should help Gates bounce back from last week's lackluster effort.

    1. Nick Novak
    2. Nick
      Novak
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG1

    Novak made all four of his field goal attempts last week. He is 13-for-15 on the season and should be taken seriously in fantasy leagues.

    1. San Diego Chargers
    2. PTS ALLOWED20
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Chargers defense stepped up in the team's win over the Colts, holding Indy to 267 total yards and nine points. They could be a decent stream this week, but Jacksonville looks at least semi-competent with Justin Blackmon back.

Jacksonville Jaguars

    1. Chad Henne
    2. Chad
      Henne
      QB
    3. PASS YDS285
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Henne threw for 303 yards and 7.2 YPA last week. He could actually be a fringe starter in certain weeks, thanks to the presence of Justin Blackmon and, to a lesser extent, Cecil Shorts.

    1. Maurice Jones-Drew
    2. Maurice
      Jones-Drew
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS96
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS43
    6. REC TD0

    Jones-Drew picked up just 71 yards on 21 carries last week, but he did hit paydirt. The newfound competence is great news for him. The longer the Jags stay in games, the more effective he will be.

    1. Justin Blackmon
    2. Justin
      Blackmon
      WR
    3. REC YDS138
    4. REC TD1

    In two games this year, Blackmon has 19 catches for 326 yards and a TD. He racked up an insane 20 targets last week. He's a true WR1.

    1. Mike Brown
    2. Mike
      Brown
      WR
    3. REC YDS63
    4. REC TD0

    Brown will get an opportunity to start with Cecil Shorts and Ace Sanders out due to injury. He's not someone you want to consider in fantasy leagues.

    1. Josh Scobee
    2. Josh
      Scobee
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG2

    Scobee made both of his field goal attempts last week, and is now 7-for-7 on the year. Two of those are from at least 50 yards. He could be a real fantasy weapon if he were on a better team.

    1. Jacksonville Jaguars
    2. PTS ALLOWED17
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    All things considered, the Jaguars didn't play all that poorly against the Broncos, forcing three turnovers. Move along before you get tempted to start them.
