The Jaguars came from 14 points behind to beat the Denver Broncos in Week 4. And Gardner Minshew’s performance is now having a league wide effect. He threw for 213 yards, two touchdowns and that has shot him up the leaderboard. According to DraftKings -Minshew improved to 2/1 and Jones’ odds slipped to 2/1 to give us a pair of co-favorites.
Jones took a step back from his starting debut against the New York Giants, but got the job done against a bad Washington team. He finished with 225 passing yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, and rushed for 33 yards in a 24-3 Giants victory.
Minshew and the Jaguars travel to face the Carolina Panthers in Week 5, while Jones and the Giants host Minnesota. If Jones can put together a decent performance against the Vikings , he could reclaim the sole lead given the solid nature of the Vikings defense. At the same time, if Minshew adds another road win to his resume, against a decent Panthers team, the two quarterbacks might continue running neck-and-neck.
