Smells like a sleeper and strategic pickup when you consider the favorable matchups.
- The Jags identity for this game is 'run the ball, stop the run'. Every team to beat Indy this year ran for 90+ and held to -90.
- The Colts are the 29th ranked run defense at 141.1/game. Jags are 2nd ranked rushing attack with 157.8/game.
- Jennings averaging 7.0/ypc and scored in the last three games.
- Will likely see extra carries this week to spell MJD, listed as questionable (knee).
The Jags can clinch the AFC South tomorrow which is significant for MJD owners as he could be rested at home against the Redskins week 16. Washington has the 28th rushing defense and Jennings could benefit. This is the type of situation that creates potential for a 2010 playoff hero. Plus, the No 2 seed in my money league has MJD and I might face him next week in the finals.
