Vince Young and David Garrard, there is a door here. Go through it and reap the fantasy rewards.
The Jaguars and Titans aren’t known for their passing games, but each offers the other a great aerial matchup. Should make for an interesting Monday-nighter.

A 27-20.5 victory is predicted for the Titans.
The Jaguars pass defense has allowed 1,492 yards (298 per game) and 12 TDs (2.4/G) this season. The Titans were effective against the pass early, but in the last three games have allowed 1,133 yards (377/G) and 3 TDs.
The Jaguars have allowed more fantasy points to opposing wide receivers than any other team in the NFL. Kenny Britt and Nate Washington, time to show us what you’ve got.
Both teams offer relatively good rushing matchups as well. Both have had good outings, but have also been burned. The two star running backs in this game, Chris Johnson and Maurice Jones-Drew, will get their shots.
