Jacksonville @ Tennessee
Team Totals: Titans 25.75, Jaguars 16.75
Jags-Titans has Week 2’s second-lowest total, rendering this a game to shy away from in fantasy-lineup decisions. Although Gardner Minshew played an efficient opener, he absorbed four sacks on just 24 dropbacks against the Colts, quarterbacking an offense that struggled to possess the ball and ran an NFL-low 47 plays. Similar problems could resurface in Nashville, especially if the Titans’ run game gets rolling, which it’s been known to do versus Jacksonville. Minshew is a two-QB-league play. … James Robinson promisingly banked 17 touches on 72% of Week 1’s snaps, playing safely ahead of Chris Thompson (2, 26%). But Robinson is again at game-script risk on a Jaguars team installed as 9-point dogs. Should Sunday’s affair go as sportsbook lines indicate, we could see Thompson out-snap Robinson as OC Jay Gruden’s preferred trail-mode back. Robinson projects as a low-floor, low-ceiling flex option.
