Buy Low Targets
Trevor Lawerence, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars
This is a tough one to swallow for many fantasy managers. Many of us probably relied on Jacksonville Jaguar players this week, and most of the leading players didn't uphold their streak of relevancy. This section as a whole can apply to Lawerence, James Robinson, or Christian Kirk.
Due to the hurricane going through Florida, the Jaguars vs. Eagles was a bit lackluster. A total of 49 points were scored in this game, with most of it going to players that probably weren't started. These players are Miles Sanders, Jamal Agnew, and the Jaguars defense accounting for 35 of it. Now throw in the fact that the Jaguars face one of the most formidable defenses in the league. Ranked 4th highest by PFF, the Jaguar's likelihood of being fantasy relevant was non-existent.
Up until Week 4, Lawerence was QB10 this season. However, two of the QBs ahead of him, Carson Wentz and Tua Tagovaiola, will likely fall behind Lawerence. This could be due to Wentz's inconsistent play or Tua's injury concerns. This means you may be able to fall into the QB8 on the season at a discounted price.
Last but not least, the Jaguars are now walking into a cakewalk schedule with their next six weeks facing the Texans, Colts, Giants, Broncos, Raiders, and Chiefs. Not everybody believes in the Jaguars, and I would be targeting Lawerence, Kirk, and Robinson if those managers are shaky.
