Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 10: Jaguars vs. Titans

Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE

A surprisingly competitive team and an expectedly horrific team face off Sunday, with a handful of fantasy players to consider.

Trying to fight their way into the AFC South race, the Tennessee Titans face the Jacksonville Jaguars preparatory sch ... okay, no, it's an actually NFL team, but only sort of. The Jags visit the Titans in a 1 p.m. Sunday matchup that features fantasy relevance almost entirely on one team's side of the ball:

Jaguars

Start in every league: I just ... I don't ... I can't

Start if you're desperate: Maurice Jones-Drew, Cecil Shorts III

Bench: Chad Henne, Mike Brown, Josh Scobee, Defense/special teams

Jones-Drew has pretty significantly not followed through on the comeback season many forecast for him. That said, his three 70-plus yard rushing games have come in his last four outings, and his last game was his first one all season over 100 total yards. The Titans defend against wide receivers; they don't stop running backs. (Remember Zac Stacy?) MJD might see an uptick. ... Speaking of which, Shorts is now The Guy for Jacksonville, which means he draws all The Guys for the opposition. Against a Titans defense that stops wide receivers like mad, Shorts is hard to count on.

Henne is Henne. If you're starting him, it's time to start looking at fantasy badminton, or something. ... Brown has been an a hot streak lately -- 120 yards in one game, 43 and a touchdown in another -- and will get more looks now with Justin Blackmon out. He's someone to keep an eye on, but wait a couple weeks before buying all the way in. ... Because his team is awful, it really doesn't matter that Scobee has been perfect on field-goal attempts this year; it's only ten total kicks in eight games. He simply doesn't get the use. ... Jaguars' defense, lol.

Titans

Start in every league: Chris Johnson, Kendall Wright, Defense/special teams

Start if you're desperate: Jake Locker

Bench: Shonn Greene, Nate Washington, Rob Bironas

It was an awful early-season, with a horrific schedule, for Johnson, but the second half should shape up much better. It started last week, with 170 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and should continue nicely against Jacksonville. ... Maybe it's just a hunch, but Wright is going to score a touchdown Sunday. Even if he doesn't, he's the best wide receiver against an awful defense, and he should have fun. ... Again, Jaguars terrible, start defenses against them. Even bad defenses should start in those matchups, and the Titans' defense is not a bad one.

Locker has only topped 300 yards once, but he's facing a defense that loves to allow points (they probably don't actually love it, but they're really good at it) to opponents. There's a definite chance that the third-year quarterback returns QB1 value this week.

Greene has only goal-line value at this point, and with Johnson's stock on the rise, Greene's is on the fall. ... Washington had consecutive hundred-yard games early in the year, but only has 107 total yards in his last four games, including a targetless game a week ago. He's hard to count on. ... Bironas' current 78.6 field-goal percentage would tie for the worst of his career, and he has yet to even attempt a kick of 50-plus yards. There's got to be a better option out there.
