He's back! After watching Nick Foles struggle since returning, the Jaguars felt it was time to go back to the rookie who never should've lost the job to begin with. Unfortunately, the matchup he's returning to is a brutal one against the Chargers. They're a defense that's finally getting healthy, as stud safety Derwin James returned last week. There's been just one quarterback all season who's been able to throw more than two touchdowns against them, and that was Deshaun Watson way back in Week 3. There have actually been just two quarterbacks all season who've thrown for more than 253 yards against the Chargers this year. A big issue is game pace, as the Chargers games net just 119.6 plays per game, which is the lowest in the NFL, as is the 57.3 plays per game their opponents average. That's led to exactly zero quarterbacks with more than 35 pass attempts. Combining low volume with just 7.36 yards per attempt that the Chargers have allowed, and you have yourself a quarterback with a fairly low floor. Minshew has been a solid streamer for much of his starts this year (top-16 in 7-of-9 starts), but this is not a great spot for him.
