Jaguars | Head coach favors Chad Henne?
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley sounded fine with the possibility of QB Chad Henne playing well and taking the starting quarterback job from QB Blaine Gabbert (thumb, hand). "That's good – I would hope he would say that," Bradley said. "He's a competitor. That's why we have confidence in him playing. I really want him to go out here and capture this and be at his best. That was our conversation today, 'Don't wait until Sunday to compete.'" Gabbert will miss Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders due to injury.
Fantasy Tip: It wouldn't surprise us if Henne played well against Oakland and started in Week 3 over a healthy Gabbert. Henne played well for a stretch last season in the same scenario. The move to Henne bodes well for Cecil Shorts and Jacksonville stretching the field. Still, Henne is a QB2, at best.
