Zay Jones- Out Again for Week 4
9 months ago

Zay Jones is still dealing with a knee injury he suffered in week 2 and will miss the Jacksonville’s Sunday morning game in London against the Falcons.

The Jaguars will be without Jones for the second straight week after a somewhat underwhelming start to the season for the team. Jacksonville was able to keep all their weapons from last year, while adding Calvin Ridley and Tank Bigsby, leading most to expect this offense to take a big step forward this season. While it’s clear there is still room for this offense to improve, their 9th overall rank in passing yards per game indicates that we should be paying careful attention to their pass catchers from a fantasy football perspective.

 

With Jones set to miss this week, and Ridley seemingly playing a little banged up, you can expect Christian Kirk to be a go-to target for Trevor Lawrence against a tough Falcons Defense that is 4th in total passing yards allowed this year. While both Ridley and Kirk get a slight bump to their value this week with Jones ruled out, it should be expected for Jamal Agnew to draw targets as the teams 3rd receiver if he is cleared to play tomorrow (quad.) Agnew quietly drew 5 targets last week and it’s clear Lawrence isn’t afraid to get him involved.

 

Fantasy Managers should do what they can to hold onto Zay Jones, as he’s proven to be a go-to target for Trevor Lawrence in the redzone so far this season. The Jaguars sound optimistic that  he will be able to play against the Bills next week while they remain in London for the second straight game. Outside of Ridley and Kirk, there isn’t another Jags receiver that needs to be in your lineups this weekend.
