C.J. Beathard is the only other quarterback on the active roster so it will be quite telling if the Jaguars elevate E.J. Perry from their practice squad. Larence is set up for a juicy matchup against a lacking Titans defense, so it would be a bummer if he is forced to sit this one out. Beathard last started a game in the final week of the 2020 season, throwing for 273-1-0 with the 49ers.
JAX QB Trevor Lawrence - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Houston Texans
Playing in what was practically a New Jersey monsoon, Trevor Lawrence saw his streak of games with at least one touchdown pass end at seven, as he racked up 229 scoreless yards against the Jets in Week 16. He saved his fantasy day with seven rushes for 51 yards and a touchdown, his fifth rushing score of the season. These deeds gave Lawrence 18.3 fantasy points, which was enough for him to finish as QB10.
On paper, the Jaguars should make short work of the Houston Texans this week. But that doesn't mean Lawrence is destined for fantasy stardom. The Texans rank second in aFPA, with teams much happier running on them than passing. Still, Lawrence's recent good run of form should keep him in the QB1 conversation this week.
