Minshew wasn't great in a loss to the Texans in London on Sunday, and it may have left a lasting impression as he turned the ball over on three consecutive possessions in the final quarter, even though the game was pretty much over by that point. Foles was injured Week 1 with a broken collarbone but Marrone said the decision came down to experience, which was on Foles' side. The Jags play at the Colts in Week 11 after their Week 10 bye. Maybe the biggest question is will Foles have the chemistry with Chark, who broke out this season with Minshew throwing him the ball.
JAX QB Gardner Minshew - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 9 vs. Houston Texans
After not doing much for fantasy owners the previous two weeks, last Sunday in the win over the Jets, Gardner Minshew threw for 279 yards and a career-high three scores. His accuracy was back up to 65% and he’s tossed at least one TD in seven of his eight pro contests. Despite having just the one 300-yard outing, the rookie has taken care of the ball, with just two picks versus 13 touchdowns. Minshew won’t have to worry about J.J. Watt and will be going against a Texans D that has struggled against the pass. He is a low QB1 play in London.
