Fantasy impact: Harrison out vs. Jaguars

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.
