Jaguars | Blaine Gabbert announced starter

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (thumb) has been named the starting quarterback. He's out for the remainder of the preseason with a hairline fracture in his thumb, however.

Fantasy Tip: Chad Henne will take the snaps Gabbert misses in the preseason. Gabbert doesn't hold a lot of fantasy value after a poor showing last year and the number of questions around him. Justin Blackmon is suspended to begin the year, and Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) is coming off a serious foot injury and is another year older. With the number of QB2's available, we'd avoid Gabbert unless he surges and has a good matchup.
