Allen Robinson is coming off of a big fantasy day last Sunday. He hauled in 7 receptions for 57 yards and 2 TDs. That performance broke him out of a semi fantasy slump and should set him on the right course for the rest of the season. This week he travels to London to take on the Colts who are allowing over 305 yards a game through the air in 2016. Despite giving up the 6th most passing yards so far the Colts have actually done really well against opposing WRs and have only allowed 3 passing TDs this season. The Colts have never been known for their defense and have been lucky to not give up more passing TDs in 2016 -- Look for Robinson to have another impressive day despite being held in check in both meetings with the Colts in 2015. Robinson is a must start and is certainly still in the conversation as a WR1.
Blake Bortles had perhaps his worst game as a pro last week, certainly the worst since his rookie year, but he still found the end zone twice. No matter how bad Bortles is in real life, he will always have a fantasy impact. Now he faces a Colts D that has given up an average of over 305 yards through the air and 1 TD so far this season. If Bortles is on you roster you'd be wise to play him this week. He averaged 275 and 2 TDs a game against the Colts last year and has performed well in London.
Allen Hurns hasn't been very helpful so far this year in fantasy, but things could turn around in a big way this week. In both contests with the Colts in 2015 Hurns was able to rack up over 100 yards and a TD. If the past is any indication of the future then Hurns is in for a big day. Oh, and about that slow start -- he had a slow fantasy start to 2015 as well, a slow start that was turned around in week 4 of last season against . . . . You guessed it, the Colts! Hurns hasn't been reliable yet in 2015, but if he's on your roster he is definitely worth a flex play this week.
Julius Thomas had his first fantasy stinker of 2016 last week against the Ravens. This week he faces a much cushier matchup against the Colts who are in the bottom half of the league when it comes to giving up fantasy points to TEs. Just based on averages it seems likely that Thomas will find his way into the end zone in this one. He usually scores in half the games he plays and he's only found the end zone once so far in 2016.
Chris Ivory & T.J. Yeldon were awful against the Ravens last week, but they have a favorable matchup against a Colts D that is giving up the fourth most points to opposing RBs in 2016. Unfortunately for this talented RB duo, the Jaguars offensive line can't run block to save their lives. Until they prove otherwise neither of these two RBs are a safe play. Plus the whole RB by committee thing has a huge negative impact on their value. But, if you think the Jaguars run blocking can improve against the Colts who are without Trent Cole, then maybe you stick one of these guys in your lineup and hope for a TD -- The Colts have given up 4 rushing TDs in just 3 games so far in 2016.
Rashad Greene & Marqise Lee have both shown flashes in 2016, but neither are consistent enough to even own at this point. Make sure to look over all your other options before inserting on of these two receivers into your lineup.
Marcedes Lewis is Marcedes Lewis. Great guy, great leader, good player, but not fantasy relevant. Do we really have to keep going over this one?
Jaguars D/ST had a surprisingly impressive performance in week 3. They created 3 turnovers and got to the QB a couple of times, and almost had a Rashad Greene punt return TD. This week they have a favorable matchup. The Colts are allowing the fourth most points to opposing D/ST units, but we're not sold just yet. This Jaguars D has looked downright bad at times and going up against Andrew Luck could spell trouble for a unit that has yet to really gel.
