5.) Christian Kirk

When the Jaguars traded for Calvin Ridley at the trade deadline last year, the Jags knew that they would now have Ridley to pair with Christian Kirk going into this season, and help Lawrence grow as a passer. While Ridley dominated the first game in his debut with Jaguars (8 catches, 101 yards, 1 touchdown), it has been Christian Kirk who has been the go-to guy for Lawrence in this Jacksonville passing attack.

Through four weeks, Kirk has been way up and way down in targets. In Weeks 1 and 3, he was targeted three times and six times. However, in Weeks 2 and 4, he has been targeted 14 times and 12 times.

He only has one receiving touchdown on the season, as well as over 100 receiving yards in one game out of the four. If this trend of his continues, then this Week 5 matchup could be limited for him. However, we know that Lawrence likes to throw it his way and now that the Bills’ secondary is weaker at corner with an injury to Tre’Davious White, Kirk could see production in back-to-back weeks.
