Jacksonville Jaguars Fantasy Spin
D.J. Chark (hamstring) was removed from the Week 12 injury report. Chark and Chris Conley were limited with hamstring injuries early in the week. It was never considered serious. Chark is coming off a 15-target Week 11 and has clearly been Nick Foles's go-to option. He's Rotoworld's No. 6-ranked wideout for Sunday's matchup with the Titans.
Tennessee Titans Fantasy Spin
Coach Mike Vrabel said the team is hopeful Delanie Walker (ankle, doubtful) will suit up Sunday against the Jaguars. Vrabel added, "He’s better than he was but still being monitored." Walker practiced in a limited fashion all week, but was given a doubtful game designation. Jonnu Smith worked as the PPR TE8 in Weeks 7-10 with Walker sidelined. Continue to treat the SPARQ-plug TE as a low-end TE1 if Walker is inactive, while the return of the offense's 35-year-old TE would likely result in a committee of sorts and render each as non-viable fantasy options.
NFL Betting Trends
The Jaguars are 3-7-1 against the spread in their last 11 games versus AFC South opponents and are 1-6-2 against the number in their last nine games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
The Titans are 15-33-3 against the spread in their last 51 games versus divisional opponents and are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games coming off a win.
Foles stunk last week in Indianapolis, routinely dumping the ball off instead of taking shots down field. Leonard Fournette didn’t look as effective with Foles in shotgun than Gardner Minshew under center, although with the Jags falling behind early, it’s hard to lay blame at the feet of Jacksonville’s running game. The biggest issue for the Jags, of course, was their run defense. The Colts ran all over Jacksonville’s defense and with Derrick Henry looming today, I love the Titans. Frankly, I’m surprised Tennessee isn’t laying 4 or 4.5 points.
