WHO’S PLAYING THEIR STARTERS?
Before the positional breakdown, it’s best to touch on how each team plans to deploy its starters in the final set of preseason games.
Jacksonville Jaguars – playing starters. The Jags’ first-team offense has not looked great, so Urban Meyer can’t afford to let them rest. Expect at least a half of action from Trevor Lawrence and company.
Cincinnati Bengals: playing starters. Joe Burrow will play a limited number of snaps with the entire starting unit. It won’t be enough to make any Bengals starter DFS-worthy, but it makes second/third string options less appealing.
