How to watch, what to watch for Browns vs. Jaguars in Week 12

The Jacksonville Jaguars still haven’t won since their season opener and will host the Cleveland Browns in Week 12. The home team is still in the hunt to claim the top pick in the 2021 NFL Draft while the visitors are chasing the undefeated Pittsburg Steelers in the AFC North.

Gardner Minshew’s has reportedly made a complete recovery from the fractured thumb that’s caused him to miss three games, but Jacksonville has opted to start Mike Glennon over the second-year signal caller and Jake Luton, who went 0-3 as Minshew’s replacement under center. It appears like the Jaguars don’t have much interest in chasing meaningless wins down the stretch.

The Browns have won two straight games since Nick Chubb returned from the IR and their replenished one-two punch at running back has combined for 355 rushing yards since Week 10. Cleveland’s receiving corps might not have to do much with Chubb and Kareem Hunt in the backfield, and Jacksonville has been horrendous against the run.

Fantasy football start/sit advice

Browns

Nick Chubb, RB, $7,100

Chubb returned from injury and posted two straight 100-yard games. While Hunt has played a few more snaps over the last two games, Chubb gets the ball almost every time he’s on the field. I like Chubb’s odds of performing at a high level with 18+ carries and with a target thrown in.

Kareem Hunt, RB, $5,600

Hunt has played more than 50 percent of Cleveland’s snaps since Week 10. He’s tallied more than 10 carries in every game he’s played in this season and has caught a pass in every game but one. He’s no average RB2 and is capable out outperforming Chubb. Rostering both backs in one lineup could be a viable option.

Jaguars

James Robinson, RB, $6,300

Robinson is the only consistent option the Jaguars have on offense. He’s reached double-digits in DKFP in every game this season. While the Browns have a great defensive front that’s limited opposing running backs, Robinson’s PPR upside could help him make up for low rushing yardage. Robinson has rushed for 70+ yards in four straight games.

Keelan Cole, WR, $3,600

The Browns have been picked apart through the air but the Jaguars might be missing D.J. Chark because of a rib injury. Cole ranks second in receptions, targets, and receiving yards among Jacksonville pass catchers. He’s also tied with Chark in touchdown catchers (4).
