The Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Los Angeles Chargers in the Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET on Saturday, Jan. 14. What does this matchup mean for Jaguars WR Zay Jones? Should you click him into your DFS lineup this weekend?
Fantasy Football analysis: Jaguars WR Zay Jones ($4,300)
Jones has a salary of $4,300 heading into this weekend’s DFS action at DraftKings while averaging 12.8 fantasy points per game this season. His matchup against the Chargers' secondary can be considered below-average, but Jones should still see around 5-6 targets.
Having said that, Jones hasn’t gotten quality looks lately. Over the last three games, he has seen a combined 15 targets for eight receptions and 59 total yards. A few receptions and less than 20 yards per contest doesn’t exactly scream fantasy value.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Sit. The matchup isn’t great, and Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence hasn’t fed Jones with high-quality targets lately. Jones has been a boom-or-bust fantasy option this season, and the draw against Los Angeles suggests the latter.
