There is no question that Jacksonville Jaguars have been erratic thus far, struggling with a 3-4 record. But in simulation, anything can happen. Though their players pale in comparison in terms of player rating, team effort could sway the tide to their favor. Offensively, Fournette cannot do it alone. Guys like D.J. Clark (81) need to do their share to ease the load off Fournette. Defense will also be pretty much the same way. A.J. Buoye, Telvin Smith and Yannick Ngakoue all have 84 overall ratings, probably enough to foil the offensive machine of the Texans. Bouye also owns an 89 speed rating, 94 in acceleration and 91 in agility. Smith, on the other hand, has 87 in speed and 89 in acceleration and 88 in agility.
Houston Texans are not faring that better from the Jaguars. They too have been struggling and are looking for answers. Offensively, they cannot rely on Hopkins alone. Players like DeShaun Watson and Lamar Miller need to hold up, each owning and 88 and 84 overall rating. The defensive unit also needs to function well. Watts holds a big overall rating but one man cannot do it alone. D.J. Reader and Justin Reid need to help out, both owning 84 overall player ratings.
