Marvin Harrison (hamstring) has been declared out for Thursday night’s game in Jacksonville.
His absence opens the door for Anthony Gonzalez to start. The Ohio State product is now a much more attractive No. 3 fantasy wideout in championship week.
The Jaguars have one of the league’s more vulnerable pass defenses — they’re without their top cornerback, Rashean Mathis, and are tied with the Bengals for the fourth-most receiving touchdowns allowed this season.
Anytime you’re tied with the Bengals in a defensive category, you know it’s not good.
Harrison’s absence also means more targets for Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark, who should be active across the fantasy board.
