Fantasy football projections, Week 13: Jaguars vs. Browns featuring Maurice Jones-Drew, Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron

We break down the Week 13 matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Cleveland Browns.

The Week 13 matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Cleveland Browns could be a sloppy one offensively. We've got all the fantasy projections for you courtesy of numberFire.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Maurice Jones-Drew has taken most of the season to get going for the Jaguars. The good news for his owners is that he's finally done it. Although his 84 yards rushing last week still isn't much when compared to the elite class at his position, Jones-Drew has touchdowns in three straight games. That's saying a lot considering what team he plays for. It may be hard to peg him for an 80-yard-plus performance against the Browns though as his yards per carry average is just 3.2 on the season.

When Jones-Drew is in a jam, quarterback Chad Henne will look to Cecil Shorts in the passing game. Shorts is the team's most consistent receiver and has been all year. Since Justin Blackmon is suspended for the year, it isn't as if Henne has that many options anyway. Shorts is only worth starting in deeper leagues for the most part.

Cleveland Browns

With quarterback Jason Campbell (concussion) due to sit out in Week 13, Brandon Weeden will get yet another chance under center. That might be good news for owners of tight end Jordan Cameron, who seemed to have a much better rapport with Brian Hoyer and Weeden than Campbell. Cameron had emerged as a top tight end early in the season, but he only has one touchdown in the last seven weeks.

Whether or not his fortunes change, there's hardly any doubt Josh Gordon will be all over the stat sheet against the Jaguars. He's the best player on the team by far and Weeden can do enough to find him in the end zone and give him lots of opportunities otherwise. Fantasy owners should look to Gordon as the star of this matchup on Sunday.
