Finding a strong second option among Jacksonville's receiving corps to replace Robinson on your fantasy team is tricky. But it made him fresh for the fourth, which started with his longest run, a 17-yarder when he turned the right corner. Houston still has a steady back in Lamar Miller, who had 1,073 yards a year ago. Houston leads the all-time match up 19-11.

Offensively, the Jaguars are averaging 18.8 points and 373.8 total yards, 235.0 in passing and 138.8 in rushing per game.

But Bortles and the Jaguars responded with a 10-play, 75-yard march, with Bortles finding fullback Tommy Bohanon for a 1-yard pass and a 26-7 lead. The Jaguars would normally have folded there, gone three and out, and subsequently blown the game.

I have had high hopes for the Jags coming into the last couple of seasons, only to have it blow up in my face in week one. What does that mean? He looked impressive in his reps during the preseason and he's looked impressive the last couple of seasons stepping in as a backup.

Sooners do nice job of disguising weapons for Ohio State
Mayfield finished a distant third , although both he and his top receiver, Dede Westbrook, were invited to NY as finalists. Ohio State hosts Oklahoma in a game that pairs teams ranked second and fifth in this week's Associated Press poll.

Recently battered by Hurricane Harvey, the city is still in recovery mode but the Texans team has been one of the many bright lights of the recovery mission. Watt. It doesn't matter who the Jaguars' offensive tackle is, Watt is likely to dominate him like he has Jacksonville tackles in the past. Jacksonville is lining Campbell up at defense end when he had most of his success playing as an interior lineman with the Arizona Cardinals' 3-4.

Ramsey said Watson gave the Texans a chance at a comeback before the Jaguars adjusted to the change of pace he brought to the offense in the second half. If so, it's possible Robinson would be lost for the remainder of the season.

Leonard Fournette didn't burst into the National Football League in spectacular fashion with one of his long-distance TD runs from his college career. And lining up with Watt for the Houston Texans to rush quarterback Blake Bortles are Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus. I suspect Bortles will get to know both guys very well before the day is done.

Bobby Sylvester of Fantasy Pros is bullish on Lee's ability to keep improving upon his performance from last season: "Lee started just six games last season but arguably outperformed Allen Robinson".
