Denver Broncos vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Matchup Preview (9/19/21)

It is hard to imagine this will be a competitive game after both teams’ Week 1 outing. The Jaguars were hammered by a team that some people did not think would win one game in the Houston Texans. Meanwhile, Denver comfortably handled the New York Giants on the road. Conventional wisdom tells us that this game should have a double-digit scoring margin by the end; however, the NFL has already brought us many weird games with weird results. If Jacksonville wants to win, it will have to utilize James Robinson much, much more. The Jags relied too heavily on rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence who needs to be eased into things a bit more. Under no circumstances should Lawrence have thrown over 50 times in his first NFL game. The Broncos don’t have too many fixes to make as the offense clicked and the defense applied significant pressure. This game’s outcome is leaning heavily in one direction, but Week 1 showed that anything is possible, so it is worth diving a little deeper into this matchup.

Denver Broncos vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Betting Odds

Denver should control this game the whole way if it plays anything as it did against the New York Giants. I believe that Teddy Bridgewater is the answer for this Broncos team, and there is strong chemistry between him, his teammates, and his coaches. The return of the heart and soul of the Broncos defense, Von Miller, has already provided leadership that can make it the best in the league if it isn’t already!

My Predictions: Denver Broncos win 34-17, Denver Broncos cover -6 (-110)

Denver Broncos Analysis

Denver looked great in its Week 1 road matchup against the New York Giants. It won by a score of 27-13. Teddy Bridgewater played with superb efficiency, completing 28 of his 36 pass attempts for two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Bridgewater showed precisely why he was chosen as QB1 for this Broncos squad. It is clear that everyone responds well to him and trusts him. There is reason to be bullish as a Broncos fan or just as a sports bettor. Their running game looked great, with Melvin Gordon running 11 times for 101 yards and Javonte Williams running 14 times for 45 yards. New York had no answer for the Broncos’ backfield, and the Jaguars are likely to fare even worse. The Giants have a solid defense this year, while the Jaguars may have a bottom two defense.

Jacksonville Jaguars Analysis

The Jacksonville Jaguars got exposed in Week 1, losing 37-21 against the Houston Texans. Many thought Houston would be the worst, or at a bare minimum, second-worst, team in the NFL. Instead, they handled the Jags at home, and Trevor Lawrence dropped his first regular-season game in over a decade (possibly longer.) Where do the Jaguars go from here? It starts with getting their most successful player from last year, James Robinson, a lot more than five touches in a game. In his five rushing attempts, he gained 25 yards, which is quite efficient. In 14 games last year, Robinson rushed for 1,070 yards and caught 49 passes for 344 yards. The Jags have to find a balance between letting Trevor Lawrence unload his cannon on opposing defenses and keeping them honest by handing the ball off. If they want to win against a much better Broncos team, they can’t have any turnovers.

Denver Broncos vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Daily Fantasy Picks

Tim Patrick is a great value play in DFS in Week 2. Unfortunately, Jerry Jeudy went down with a high-ankle sprain in the game; however, now Patrick will be relied upon to step up in the passing game. He was already getting a significant amount of targets, even with Jeudy still on the field, so this should only increase his workload. His size at 6-foot-4 allows him to be a significant red-zone threat too. If last week told us anything, Courtland Sutton is still not 100% healthy after a knee injury last season. This makes Patrick a sort of WR1b in the Broncos’ offense for the foreseeable future, in my opinion. You can probably get him for WR3 value, and he will not be a super common pick, which gives your lineup even more upside. The Jaguars have an atrocious defense, so a touchdown or two is certainly not out of the question.

There are no Jaguars players I like in DFS this week, so there will be another Broncos pick. For the most part, Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon split carries, but I can see Williams having a huge week. He got 14 carries in Week 1 against the Giants, and although he struggled a bit, that is a decent workload. The Jaguars will not put up any resistance so that he could have 100 yards this week. Also, Williams only caught one ball, which should change against the Jags. He should get at least 100 yards total and three or four receptions and get a touchdown. Play the matchup more than the player in this situation.
