Jaguars vs Titans: Mike Sims-Walker Scores Twice | NFL Player Rankings
This was supposed to be the week that the Titans got their first win and started a run towards the playoffs. Apparently, the Jaguars and Mike Sims-Walker did not get the memo as they crushed Tennessee 37-to-17.
Mike Sims-Walker is Coming of Age
There is a reason why fantasy analysts like myself place an importance on third year wide receivers. Often times a receivers third year as a pro is the season they break out and become fantasy football viable.
Today, Sims-Walker had seven receptions for 91 yards receiving and two touchdowns. He is clearly David Garrard’s top target in the passing game and makes for a solid every week fantasy football starter.
In the past three weeks Sims-Walker has a total of 19 receptions for 278 yards and three touchdowns. This guy is on fire and is going to have a fine season.
Tight end Marcedes Lewis also posted a strong day as he caught four passes for 76 yards and a touchdown from over 30 yards out. If Lewis and Walker can provide this team with solid play it should help running back Maurice Jones-Drew continue his strong start to the fantasy football season.
Josh Scobee Produces
Kicker Josh Scobee’s production for this season is kind of up in the air. If the Jaguars make a playoff push this season then Scobee will receive opportunities all season long and could be a solid fantasy kicker. If the Jaguars slump at times it would hurt fantasy owners with Scobee because he won’t get good chances.
In this game Scobee received four opportunities and made three of them. This was a big win for the Jaguars as they have made life very difficult for the Titans. Look for Scobee to be a decent option for the next week or two as the Jaguars are hot right now.
Time for a Change
Now that the Titans are 0-4 it may be time for the team to consider switching back to quarterback Vince Young. While Kerry Collins was a solid quarterback last season, he has now thrown six interceptions on the season.
Today, Collins had two interceptions, and it just didn’t look like he had much going for most of the game.
This game was so out of hand that the Jaguars didn’t even bother using Maurice Jones-Drew in the fourth quarter of the game.
Could the Titans go to 0-5 to start the season?
