Start Of The Week: James Robinson vs Houston Texans
Let’s call this one the ‘Finally free from Urban Meyer’ play. Let’s be honest. James Robinson is far and away the best offensive player on the Jaguars. The dude is a baller and the way he was being utilized under Meyer was criminal. I think the dog gets let off the leash this week against a Texans defense that couldn’t stop a nosebleed with a towel. Houston has surrendered 18 total TDs (T-3rd most) and the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this season. I’m hammering the over on his ESPN projection of 15.8 points this week.
Others to consider: James Conner (ARI) - @DET, Javonte Williams (DEN) - CIN, Myles Gaskin (MIA) - NYJ
Sit Of The Week: Aaron Jones vs Baltimore Ravens
He touched the ball eight times last game... Sure, he finished with 20+ because he has RB1 talent. But he's not seeing RB1 usage. Jones may have gotten the fantasy points, but AJ Dillon touched the football (15) nearly twice as many times as Jones. Jones has now been out-snapped and out-touched by Dillon in each of their last three games. Betting on Jones to continue delivering for you (with the opportunity he has seen recently) is a slippery slope. It doesn’t help that the Ravens surrender the sixth-least fantasy points to opposing RBs this season. I’m not 100 percent recommending sitting him, but I am definitely going to take the under on his ESPN projection of 14.0 points this week.
