Rashad Jennings and Daryl Smith are out. We break down the fantasy implications.
Analysis: Jennings' fantasy value takes a major hit here. He was taken in the top 100 picks in every legitimate fantasy draft, but now with Maurice Jones-Drew back and Jennings banged up, he isn't exactly a must-own player. MJD should be busy, but it'll be tough sledding against the stout Houston D. Daryl Smith being out sets up Paul Posluszny for a monster IDP day. The Texans will likely run the ball down their throat and with the way the Jaguars project to struggle on O, the JAX D should be on the field a lot. Dawan Landry is also a great start in IDP.
