Jacksonville Jaguars DFS Spin
Calvin Ridley caught all three targets for 50 yards in the Jaguars’ preseason Week 3 game against the Dolphins. Ridley’s exploits included a 28-yard toe-tapping grab along the sideline to set up a Travis Etienne score from three yards out in the second quarter. He has quickly established rapport with quarterback Trevor Lawrence and looks to be the legitimate alpha heading into 2023.
Indianapolis Colts DFS Spin
Colts RB Zack Moss (forearm) has been ruled out for Week 1. Moss was downgraded from questionable after a week of limited practice. The Colts will hold Moss out this week but he’s on track to return in Week 2. Deon Jackson will start vs the Jaguars, with rookie Evan Hull mixing in as the No.2 back.

Jaguars vs. Colts Prediction:
Remember three years ago when there was some hype around Philip Rivers joining the Colts, who traveled to Jacksonville in Week 1 and were shocked 27-20 by the Jaguars? Or last season, when Matt Ryan and the Colts traveled to Houston and played in a weird 20-20 tie when Indianapolis was heavily favored? Whatever you expect the Colts to do in Week 1, flip it on its head. Anthony Richardson has next to nothing around him, while the Jaguars are now viewed as a rising team in the AFC thanks to Trevor Lawrence and a completely revamped roster. Richardson can make plays with his legs and his arm and while it’s going to be a bumpy 2023 for the rookie, I think he keeps the Colts in this one today.
