The (1-5) have been one of the worst teams in the NFL and that didn’t change last week as Sam Darnold threw 4 interceptions to the Patriots last week along with a fumble. His comment about seeing ghosts might have been the truth. Le’Veon Bell has been the only source of offense for the most part. Across from them will be the (3-4) Jaguars who still have a legitimate shot in the AFC South. They recently traded away their start defender, Jalen Ramsey, and have seemed to set their focus on the future, but they shouldn’t give up on this year. Gardner Minshew has fit in nicely as the quarterback with a few big games. This will be a must-win game type of game for the Jaguars if they want a chance at playoff contention this year.

New York Jets Analysis
The Jets have lost any hope they once had at being a good team this year. They have gone through three quarterbacks now due to injuries and sicknesses and now their starter doesn’t even look good. Sam Darnold had quite possibly the worst game for a quarterback of the season last week with 86 passing yards and 4 interceptions. Le’Veon Bell was the only splash of good that came out of that game with 70 yards on 15 carries. This was against the best team in the NFL, but they looked absolutely horrendous.
This week, they need to use Le’Veon Bell more. He is their one playmaker on the team, and they signed him for a reason. He had the talent to lead a struggling Steelers’ offense a couple of years ago and has the ability to bring something to the Jets. They just have to put the ball in his hands more often. They also have found some success in throwing deep as it was how they were able to pull off their only win against the Cowboys a couple of weeks ago. They need to mix up giving Bell more touches and throwing deep to Robby Anderson to have success this week.

Jacksonville Jaguars Analysis
Leonard Fournette has begun to turn into a beast for the Jaguars. Last week he ran all over the Bengals which highly contributed to their win. When he doesn’t get to 100 yards, the Jaguars have usually lost with one exception where they won without him hitting the mark. When he has hit the mark, they have never lost. He has been getting close to 50% of the team’s plays each game recently which worked last week. This kind of approach should work against the Jets.
The Jets have a terrible offense which the Jaguars should have no problem with stopping. The big task will be moving the ball. Despite the Jets’ problems, their defense has not been one of them. They have managed to put up above-average yards allowed per game with just 352.2. Most of their yards allowed have been through the air, so I expected Gardner Minshew to play a factor. The one weakness they can exploit is the number of rushing touchdowns they have allowed. The Jets have allowed 10 rushing touchdowns which are tied for the most in the NFL. Leonard Fournette can be ready for a busy time in the red zone.

Daily Fantasy: Cleaning It Up
The Jets are a team that allows teams to pass their way down the field. These types of drives are cleaned up with a rushing touchdown within the 10. This is a perfect scenario for Leonard Fournette’s owners. Fournette has lately been getting more and more touches, reaching 100 yards multiple times now. If he can keep this up, the Jets are a team that will allow him to score. They have allowed the most rushing touchdowns in the league with 10 in six games. There is no one that is a threat to Fournette’s running game which is a very scarce thing in the NFL nowadays. Fournette will be explosive this game.
