The Jacksonville Jaguars led the New York Jets by a score of 31-12 with just 25 seconds left to play in the game. T.J. Yeldon had just scored a garbage time touchdown and when Josh Lambo stayed on the sidelines it was a little surprising.Instead , the offense stayed on the field for a two-point conversion attempt. They failed, but it begged the question ó why was Doug Marrone going for two in that situation? The game was won. The Jets quite literally didnít have enough time to run the length of the field three times for touchdowns each time.When Marrone was asked, he said it was because of the chart, an easy way to reference in-game what a team should do after scoring depending on what the score differential was.Itís an easy explanation and a believable one. Marrone is a creature of habit but he also knows that NFL games can get wildly out of hand. Better to be thought of as a jerk than be the guy who sets the NFL record for allowing the wildest, most improbable comeback ever, right?According to ESPNís Mike DiRocco, Marrone has some ill will towards that Jets franchise and did not want to let his foot up off the gas.But whatever you think, one thing is for certain ó you canít put this one on Blake Bortles.What do you think? Was Marrone running up the score or was he just treating it like any other score, regardless of how much time was left on the clock? Let us know in the comments below!The Fantasy Life: Week 5 Thursday start and sit START QB Tom Brady, PatriotsIf youíre wondering why Tom Terrific isnít considered a must start itísbecause he hasnít had the start to the season that everyone is used to. Is it age? Are there skills diminishing? The answers to those questionsare no.His weapons are not the best, but that might change with his favorite target coming off suspension in Julian Edelman. I believe he will have a great game as heís going up against the Colts you just gave up 375 yards and two touchdowns to Deshaun Watson. Also, donít discount the Josh Gordon impact.This may be the game where Brady once again becomes a must start.Projection: 343 yards passing and 3 touchdowns QB Andrew Luck, ColtsLuck was back to his old self, throwing four touchdowns but more importantly averaging over 7 yards per attempt. With a running game presently sitting at 29th in the league, Luck is the Colts only hope at being competitive. If theyíre going to have any chance to win this game heís going to have to produce some good numbers which means a great fantasy day. Projection: 275 yards passing, 3 touchdowns and 1 interceptionRB Nyheim Hines, ColtsHow is it possible to criticize the Colts running attack, and the recommend a Colts running back? Well, consider this a recommendation for the desperate.Hines has at least shown some fantasy value. He is the third most targeted player on the team, registering 22 receptions for 119 yards and 2 touchdowns. If youíve been hit by injuries and are looking for some production, pull Hines from the waiver wire.Projection: 15 rushing yard, 6 receptions for 70 yards RB Sony Michel , PatriotsMichel broke out last week with 25 rushes for 112 yards and one touchdown. He did this against a pretty run stout Miami defense. The Colts are fighting the injury bug on defense and it is quite possible the Patriots spend the 4th quarter just running out the clock.Projection:21 carries for 101 yards and 1 touchdown RB James White, PatriotsWhite had two touchdowns one via catching one via rushing. Expec the touchdown trend to continue this week. With Burkhead going on IR it seems like White is really taking a bigger role in the Pats offense. I expect another 8 targets in the passing game. Projection: 6 receptions for 75 yards and 1 touchdown along with 30 yards rushing on 6 attemptsWR Julian Edelman, Pats Tom BradyĎs favorite target is back and boy did he come back at the right time.The offense is lacking playmaking ability, and with Gronk injuring his ankle he might at best be limited. Open the flood gates of targets for Edelman. He will be a matchup nightmare for the Colts.Projection:10 receptions for 116 and 1 touchdown on 12 targetsWR Chester Rogers, Colts T. Y. Hilton is inactive with a hamstring pull. I expect Luck to target Rogers. Last week he went for 8 catches on 11 targets for 85 yards. This game could be very well be a catch-up mode game for the Colts so I expect Rogers to have a sneaky fantasy day. Projection: 7 receptions for 93 and 1 touchdownTE Eric Ebron, ColtsHe has scored in three of his first four games as a Colt, and I expect him to score in this game that could very well be a Patriots blowout. With Doyle inactive, Ebron will get the looks in a matchup that favors the tight end against a Patriots defense that does not guard the position well. Projection: 4 receptions for 42 yards and 1 touchdownPats Defense They are ranked 8th against the pass and the Colts canít run the ball. So while Luck may get touchdowns I expect a good amount of sacks and turnovers. Projection: 24 points allowed with 3 turnovers and 4 sacksK Stephen Gostkowski, Pats The Colts gave up 37 points last week; so itís safe to say their defense isnít the best. I expect many kicking opportunities for Gostkowski. Projection: 2 for 2 on field goals and 4 extra pointsK Adam Vinatieri, Colts Seriously. Great night for kickers.He is currently averaging eight fantasy points per game this season and the Patriots happen to give up around 7.5 fantasy points per game to opposing Kickers. Pats also are a bend donít break type of defense; so I project many field goal attempts Projection: 3 for 3 on field goals and 3 extra pointsSIT RB Jordan Wilkins, Colts I am very high on Wilkins; I said on my show way before he got drafted that he is someone to keep an eye on. He has potential but not in this game where the Colts could abandon the run early. Excluded from the passing attack, he is has no fantasy value. Projection: 8 attempts 61 yards WR Ryan Grant, Colts He will play a ton as Hilton is out but he is not worth the start. He had 7 targets last week catching 5 for 64 yards. However he dropped easy slant passes and it seams Rogers and Pascal have better roles in this offense. He will be fighting for targets and he is a risky play even for my tastes. Projection: 4 receptions for 62 yardsWR Chris Hogan, PatsHe had one catch last week!!!This was a guy I thought would breakout, especially with Edelman gone for the first four games, but he hasnít.Dorset has been the guy and with Edelman returning I see him getting squeezed out of offense. Limited targets especially when you account for Josh Gordon. Wait and see how he is used. Projection: 4 receptions for 43 yardsWR Josh Gordon, Pats He definitely has more upside than Chris Hogan as he can easily take a catch to the house. Iím sitting him because I donít know if he has yet to fully grasp the offense, and there is the question of his hamstring.I want to see how he is being used as Edelman is coming back to this offense. You might get a big play out of him and that may be worth the risk, but consider how happy Brady is to have Edelman back.Projection: 4 receptions for 65 yardsColts Defense Take a look at their inactive list. Did I mention Edelman? Projection: 35 points allowed, 2 sacks, 1 turnover
