Who knew the return of QB David Garrard would cause the Jaguars' offense to rise from the dead on Halloween?

Looking below average for most of the season, Jacksonville put together its most complete offensive effort of 2010 on Sunday, rolling over Dallas 35-17. Coming back from a concussion, Garrard led the surge by completing 17-of-21 passes for 260 yards and four TDs and adding another score on the ground. In short, he performed like a fantasy star.

Although nobody will confuse Garrard for Peyton Manning, the Jags' QB actually has played very well of late. In his last three full games, he has tossed nine TD passes and only one interception and added two rushing scores. Considering that most fantasy owners likely gave up on him, he might not be a bad guy to pick up as a quality backup or potential starter.

One of the reasons Garrard played so well is because WR Mike Sims-Walker finally decided to show up after a mostly disappointing campaign. He had eight catches for 153 yards and a TD, and this might be the outing he needed to get going for the second half. If he has been wasting away on your bench, now might be the time to get him back in your lineup. Following a Week Nine bye, he has tasty home matchups with the Texans and Browns.
