I predict a TD this week. Strangely enough, it could be rushing, receiving, OR passing!

Wouldn't that be something. Early on he goes deep, catches a long bomb for a TD. Later on, trick play, double reverse with Matt Jones barrelling through the defense for a TD. Then late 4th quarter, motioning Jones across the line, bad snap, Jones picks up the ball, scrambles, and throws a TD pass.

Now, back to reality... Indy's defense isn't quite as good as Kyle Boller made it seem, and I can see Leftwich finding Matt Jones for at least one big hook up, maybe a TD. I don't think this will be his breakout game, but he could be worth starting if you're hurting at WR.

Yeah i dont see Jones doing much for a while. I knows hes a physical specimen but he lacks experience. I dont think he will get enough playing time to have a fantasy impact.

Leftwich, Taylor, & Jimmy should all get theirs in this matchup. Matt Jones might get some runoff from that (maybe a TD), but I don't predict this being his breakout game.

Matt Jones Breakout Week - The Quarterback

In 2004, Leftwich threw for 300-plus yards in both games against Indy, completing over 70 percent of his passes with three touchdowns and only one interception. Actually, Leftwich is one of two QBs who face a team this week who they've had consecutive 300-yard games against (Trent Green against the Raiders is the other). And for Leftwich, his feat was done in last year's offense, not the throw-first style the Jags are employing in 2005.
From Gil Brandt:
Jaguars at Colts: The only game the Colts lost at home last year was to Jacksonville. ... For Jacksonville, I like QB Byron Leftwich, who played well last year against Indy (618 yards, three TDs in two games last year). ... WR Jimmy Smith and RB Fred Taylor look good too.

I don't know. The thing is that though he may only catch 4 passes, he will probably run the ball 2-3 times too. And these are the types of end rushes that when they hit, they hit big. He could be worth starting as your third WR, depending on depth.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Great call Lush - I think if Matt Jones is going to break out this yr - its gonna be in a shootout like against INDY this weekend.

If Im looking at JAX players who are most likely to make a fantasy impact, Id list JSmith and Lefty first then Matt Jones and FTaylor immediately after. It wouldnt suprise me in the least to see JAX abandon the run by the 3rd qtr - and thats spells fantasy gold for the WRs.

Seattle hasn't had front four pressure in half a decade. But we got into Leftwich pretty damn well last week.

I don't think it's a lock that the Jags will be able to bust out the big passing game just because of what they did last year versus Indy.

I know some of you were touting the Colts improved pass rush/defense not more than a couple days ago after the Ravens game.

Didn't David Patten throw a touchdown, catch a touchdown, and rush for a touchdown in the same game a couple of years ago?
