Week 6 vs. Miami Dolphins
Trevor Lawrence posted 273 passing yards with a touchdown through the air and on the ground in Week 5, and actually had another rushing touchdown overturned on an unfortunate replay review. Lawrence has been running more lately, which bolsters his fantasy floor even as the Jags are generally struggling to produce offensively. This week he matches up with a Miami defense that just got burnt by Tom Brady and the Bucs last week. The general lack of talent in Jacksonville and the usual rookie learning curve make Lawrence an inconsistent and sometimes frustrating player, but his QB2 status is looking better heading into Week 6 with the added rushing production.
Logic would suggest that Urban Meyer wouldn’t pop the hood on Jacksonville’s full scheme in preseason games against the Browns, Saints and Cowboys. But it’s not as if the opponents are emptying the playbook, either, and for the second consecutive game, it was painful to watch the first offense the Jaguars put on the field. The tempo was sluggish.
The story said Meyer's frustration maybe stems from not having better players than everyone else, like he's used to. The story added Lawrence still held the ball too long at times, the protection was faulty and the receivers couldn’t get separation. To make matters worse, first-round tailback Etienne left the game with a foot injury. He was in a boot Monday night, and ESPN reported Tuesday that Etienne is out indefinitely with a foot sprain. We reported earlier it's a potential Lisfranc injury.
