The Jacksonville Jaguars will travel to Indianapolis to face the Colts in Week 4, who lead the NFL with 10 turnovers in just three games.
This game may be the boost that the Jacksonville defense needs, as they are dead last in the NFL with just one forced turnover in 2015. As an additional bonus, Jacksonville may be squaring off with quarterback Matt Hasselbeck as Andrew Luck's status is in doubt as he deals with a shoulder injury. No matter who is under center for the Colts, the Jacksonville D/ST won't be a startable fantasy option on the road in Week 4. Oct 2 - 3:20 AM

The Jacksonville defense will face the red-hot New England Patriots offense on the road in Week 3.

Tom Brady and the Patriots destroyed a solid Buffalo defense in Week 3, throwing for 466 yards and three touchdowns in a divisional win. This week, the Jaguars have the unenviable task of trying to slow this offense down and the matchup puts Jacksonville's D/ST unit at the bottom of potential Week 3 fantasy plays. This game kicks off a rough three game road trip for Jacksonville, which means the Jaguars D/ST will remain happily on fantasy waiver wires for the foreseeable future.

The Jacksonville Jaguars defense is missing the pass-rush impact of DT Sen’Derrick Marks.

Marks did limited practice work on Wednesday, but is still likely weeks away from finding the field on Sundays. The Florida Times-Union highlighted the missing presence of Marks saying, "For sure, he’s an effective base-package player, but on third down, he developed into a must-account-for-him interior pass rusher." The Jaguars defense did get to Carolina quarterback Cam Newton twice in Week 1, but has plenty of work left to do before the group becomes relevant for fantasy purposes. The Jaguars D/ST will not be on the fantasy radar in Week 2 against Miami.

The Florida Times Union reports that the Jacksonville Jaguars will use a committee to replace injured DT Sen'Derrick Marks (knee).

The report also noted that "the first-team defense didn't generate much pressure without him in the preseason." Marks, who tore his ACL in the final week of the 2014 season, should be back early in 2015 but the Jacksonville defense will miss the inside pressure from their defensive line while he is out. The Jaguars are a bottom-dwelling fantasy D/ST in Week 1 as they host the Carolina Panthers.

DE Chris Smith was the only projected defensive starter to play in Jacksonville's final preseason tune up.

Coach Gus Bradley told, "Resting starters was not only about first-team health, but keeping starters fresh and preparing for the September 13 regular-season opener against Carolina." The Jaguars are obviously content with their first-team defense and will hope to see notable improvement from a season ago. The Jaguars D/ST is a group to avoid in fantasy leagues this season.

The Detroit Lions averaged over 10 yards per play in the first half against the Jacksonville defense on Friday night.

The Florida Times-Union highlighted the defensive deficiencies that were present in Jacksonville’s third preseason game, noting that the defense turned in an "alarming performance." The Jaguars D/ST is not on the fantasy radar and certainly won’t be an option in Week 1 when they host the ball-control offense of the Carolina Panthers.
