Week Four Answers: Houston Texans 27 Jacksonville Jaguars 30

Q: How well does RB Steve Slaton follow-up his 116 yard/1 Td coming out party?

A: He had 120 total yards and a TD. With 8 more catches, Slaton is proving to be a PPR RB2. Given he was drafted in the 7th+ round this off-season, Slaton may prove to be the difference between a winning fantasy season and a mosing one. Those recpetions make him a legitmate every week starter.

Q: Can the Jaguars' rushing attack repeat its Week Three efforts?

A: The Jaguars rushed for 139 yards so the answer would be "yes" based just on that. But. QB Dave Garrard and 3rd-year RB/special teams Montell Owens combined for 82 of those. This makes three of four games in which the vaunted RB tandem of Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew have failed to meet even a minimum of expectations.

As interesting, on the positive side, has been the emergence of former 1st round pick WR Matt Jones. He caught five more passes to bring his season total to 21. With PPR point totals of 14, 10, 9, and 18 in the first four games, one can do worse than sticking him in as your WR2 or 3 during these byes. Of course, one wonders if his prominence will diminish if the Jags ever recover its ability to rush the ball.
