Jacksonville Jaguars Week 6 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 6 roundup for the Jacksonville Jaguars in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 10

Fantasy surprise: QB Trevor Lawrence

Lawrence hasn't played badly, but he hasn't gotten off to the hot start as expected, with only five touchdown passes despite the addition of WR Calvin Ridley to Jacksonville's corps. Lawrence had his best game last Sunday against the Bills, throwing for 315 yards and a touchdown, but ranks behind C.J. Stroud, Jordan Love, Sam Howell and Joshua Dobbs in fantasy points among QBs. -- Michael DiRocco -- Rank: 7

Even with Week 4's solid, convincing victory over Atlanta, I think Sunday was the first time I could say the offense was really humming. This had been a bit of an underperforming unit, frankly, prior to ringing up 474 yards and 29 first downs against Buffalo, even with Trevor Lawrence's three fumbles (two lost). And I'm not ignoring the fact that he and his team have fumbled at too high a rate, and the sacks keep racking up. But getting that big-play potency back was pretty key, and it was fueled by Calvin Ridley and Travis Etienne -- just as it was meant to be. The defense has been mostly stout, but the offense had to find a little mojo.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 9

Their London trip ended up with them going 2-0, which included that impressive victory over the Bills on Sunday. Now they have fix their turnover issues at times.

USA Today -- Rank: 7

The first team to play multiple international games in a season is now the first to win multiple — both coming against teams with winning records. Stay in Europe, Jags — it seems inevitable, and you're apparently better for it.

The Athletic -- Rank: 10

Wide receiver Calvin Ridley (22 catches, 333 yards) has helped after being acquired in a trade with the Falcons, but the draft class hasn't provided much. Jacksonville drafted 13 players in the offseason. First-rounder Anton Harrison is starting at right tackle, but second-round tight end Brenton Strange (two catches, 7 yards) and third-round running back Tank Bigsby (41 yards on 15 carries) haven't blossomed yet.

FOX -- Rank: 8

Maybe this is a bit of a turning point for the Jags. They have one of the best young QBs in the game and plenty of talent, and they should be capable of beating a team like Buffalo. Piling up 474 yards and converting 56% of your third downs is a nice change of pace for an offense that's too talented to be mediocre.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 10

If we eliminate the Texans loss from our minds, the Jaguars are in a good spot. They're one game behind the best teams in the AFC standings. The rest of the AFC South is probably bad, especially with Anthony Richardson's injury. The Jaguars still could end up running away with the division and being in the mix for the No. 1 seed.

PFT -- Rank: 7

0-2 in Jacksonville. 2-0 in London. Just saying.
