Jacksonville Jaguars

Sixty-eight percent of tickets and 85% of money have come in on last season’s AFC runners-up.

The Jaguars have quickly integrated offseason addition Austin Seferian-Jenkins into the offense, as the tight end played on 13 of 15 first-team snaps in Week 1 (per DraftKings’ Adam Levitan). The  6-foot-5, 262-pound Seferian-Jenkins is bigger and arguably a better receiver than Marcedes Lewis, who had a team-high 10 red-zone targets last season.

Minnesota Vikings

Dalvin Cook’s usage in Weeks 1-4 last season seemed to indicate that 20-plus carries and three to five targets per game would be the norm. Still, Latavius Murray dealt with an ankle injury over that stretch and would proceed to rip off 15-plus carries in 10 of the 12 games without Cook.

It remains to be seen whether new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo will utilize a committee backfield like he did in Philadelphia, which would feature Cook as the lightning to Murray’s thunder.
