Jaguars' Leonard Fournette ranked as Week 3's RB11
Jacksonville Jaguars' running back Leonard Fournette is projected by our models to score 15.5 FanDuel points against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday.
Fournette's FanDuel point production has been lacking through two weeks, but it's not due to a lack of opportunity. The former first-round pick has 36 touches this season, including an impressive 8 receptions. His usage in the passing game will keep him heavily involved in all facets of the Jaguars' offense against a Titans' defense ranked 5th overall by our power rankings.
Our models project Fournette to record 79.7 yards and .5 touchdowns on the ground and 23.7 yards on 3.1 receptions through the air.
Titans' Marcus Mariota projected to throw 29.1 times in Week 3
Tennessee Titans' quarterback Marcus Mariota is projected by our models to score 15.7 FanDuel points against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday.
Mariota's Week 3 FanDuel price against the Jaguars is $6,800. After crushing the Browns for 24.3 FanDuel points in Week 1, Mariota regressed significantly in Week 2, producing 13.4 FanDuel points against the Colts. In Week 3 he will face a Jaguars' defense that just held Deshaun Watson to 12.6 FanDuel points and is ranked 26th overall by our power rankings.
Our models project Mariota to produce 18.9 completions for 213.1 yards and 1.1 touchdowns.
Jaguars' Gardner Minshew projected for 246 passing yards in Week 3
Jacksonville Jaguars' quarterback Gardner Minshew is projected by our models for 16 FanDuel points against the Tennessee Titans.
Minshews' Week 3 FanDuel price against the Titans is $6,400. After producing a respectable 16.1 FanDuel points against the Houston Texans in his first career start in Week 2, Minshew will attempt to improve upon that performance against a Tennessee pass defense ranked 3rd overall by our power rankings.
Our models project Minshew to produce 22.2 completions for 246.1 yards and 1.3 touchdowns.
C.J. Anderson released by the Lions on Tuesday
C.J. Anderson was released by the Detroit Lions on Tuesday afternoon.
Anderson saw his workload reduced in Week 2 and was released on Tuesday to make room for Paul Perkins, who the Lions claimed off waivers. The change could signal an increase in touches for Lions' second-year running back Kerryon Johnson who had been splitting carries with Anderson. With several teams around the league potentially needing help at running back, Anderson may not be a free agent for long.
In two games for the Lions this season, Anderson produced a total of 43 yards on 16 attempts.
Titans' Delanie Walker projected for 6.5 targets in Week 3
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker is projected by our models for 8.4 FanDuel points against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Walker's Week 3 FanDuel price against the Jaguars is $5,700. The veteran Titan has a good matchup against a leaky Jacksonville pass defense rated 26th overall by numberFire's power rankings.
Our models project Walker to haul in 4.2 receptions for 46.8 yards.
Philadelphia's DeSean Jackson (groin) reportedly expected to miss Week 3's game against Detroit
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (groin) is not expected to play in Sunday's matchup against the Detroit Lions.
According to Pelissero, Jackson is unlikely to suit up in Week 3 after suffering a groin injury. Philly's speedy receiver looks like he could be out for multi-weeks with Pelissero also adding Week 4's matchup on Thursday could be too soon for Jackson to return.
If Jackson is out for Week 3's game against Detroit, expect Nelson Agholor to play a bunch of snaps at receiver. Our models currently project Agholor to haul in 4.5 receptions for 55.6 yards on 7.4 targets.
