Kenny Britt (Available in 61% of leagues)
I only like Britt if Kerry Collins is starting. As for rookie, Rusty Smith? Well, he couldn’t throw in the towel, let alone the football. Collins is a season veteran who knows how to get the ball to his playmakers and before Britt went down he had seven touchdowns in seven games. Britt has two matchups left out of three that find him against two of the lower-tier secondaries in Houston and Kansas City.
David Garrard (Available in 55% of leagues)
You always, always want to have at least the one or two players on your bench that are fighting play in and play out down the stretch, and for the Jaguars that player is Garrard. With only a one-game lead in their division, expect Garrard and Co. to be very efficient over the last month of play.
Mike Thomas (Available in 54% of leagues)
Thomas and Sims-Walker have been interchangeable this season, but with consecutive Week 16 and 17 matchups against the 29th and 31st worst rated pass defenses, both receivers should be busy at work trying to hold onto their AFC South lead.
Mike Sims-Walker (Available in 37% of leagues)
Five touchdowns in nine games played this season, the second-year man should see that ratio increase over the following three weeks.
Josh Freeman (Available in 40% of leagues)
A near 3-to-1 touchdown to interception ratio on the season (17:6), Freeman will get multiple chances to get over that hump when he takes on the Lions (13th against the pass) and Seattle (30th) in consecutive weeks at home.
Kellen Winslow (Available in 23% of leagues)
With two of his three remaining opponents struggling against the pass (Detroit and Seattle), Winslow’s is a sneaky pickup down the stretch for your team.
