Jaguars | Justin Blackmon staying quiet

Sun, 22 Jun 2014 08:36:39 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has stayed quiet while serving his NFL suspension. "Every now and again, he will respond to my text," said Jaguars receiver Mike Brown. "We came into the NFL together and we're halfway close. But I don't get into his personal business. Whatever he has going on, I respect his space. "I just want him to get better. Whatever the problem is, get it addressed. I'm more concerned about him as a person."

Jaguars | Would consider playing Justin Blackmon

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 11:57:44 -0700

The Jacksonville Jaguars are open to taking WR Justin Blackmon back and playing him this year if the league reinstates him from his indefinite suspension, according to a source with knowledge of the team's plans.

Fantasy Tip: The expectation is that Blackmon won't play at all in 2014. But if for some reason the NFL decides to lighten up on his penalty, he'll be playing in Jacksonville. For how many games that would be would be a complete guess. Blackmon is undraftable until we know more.

Jaguars | Not expecting Justin Blackmon to play

Fri, 02 May 2014 09:45:42 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said he'd be "relatively surprised" if WR Justin Blackmon played in the 2014 season.

Fantasy Tip: It's Cecil Shorts and a cast of unproven wideouts for the Jags' receiving corps entering the season. We fully expect Jacksonville to make WR a primary focus in next week's draft, as a result.

Jaguars | Stephen Burton could see more WR time

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 00:16:46 -0800

With the indefinite suspension of Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon, the team may turn to WR Stephen Burton to get some work. A third-year veteran acquired off waivers from Minnesota shortly before the season, he missed four games with a concussion and was inactive against the San Francisco 49ers, but the team is intrigued by Burton's size and speed and he will get opportunity in the coming weeks. Burton caught seven passes for 65 yards in the first three games of the season.

Jaguars | Justin Blackmon suspended indefinitely

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 13:11:35 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL's policy and program for substances of abuse. Blackmon will be eligible to apply for reinstatement prior to the 2014 season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look to drop Blackmon because he will not play again this season. With Blackmon out, Cecil Shorts likely will have more fantasy value since he will be the team's top receiver. Owners in deeper leagues should consider adding Mike Brown if he is available in their leagues.

Jaguars | Justin Blackmon expected to play

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 17:58:54 -0700

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon (hamstring) is expected to play in the Week 8 game against the San Francisco 49ers in London. Officially, he is listed as probable.

Fantasy Tip: If you normally depend upon Blackmon, he is expected to be fine to play Sunday. That's the good news. The bad news is that the 49ers rank fifth in the NFL against the pass, allowing just 219.4 yards per game.

Jaguars | Justin Blackmon progressing

Thu, 17 Oct 2013 13:54:10 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon (hamstring, groin) is progressing nicely but is unlikely to practice Friday, Oct. 18. However, head coach Gus Bradley said Blackmon should be able to play in Week 7 against the San Diego Chargers. "Blackmon's good," Bradley said. "I think it's something that he'll have to deal with. He may be a guy that we hold out tomorrow just to keep it calmed down."

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon should play and makes for a solid WR2 in most leagues. However, if Cecil Shorts (shoulder) doesn't play, you may want to lower your expectations a bit if the San Diego Chargers elect to double Blackmon. Blackmon was limited in practice Thursday.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts misses practice

Thu, 10 Oct 2013 13:29:44 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (groin) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 10.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Shorts had a setback or if the team is just being cautious and keeping him out today. Either way, this is something to keep an eye on heading into Sunday. If Shorts doesn't play, Justin Blackmon's value will go up slightly.

Jaguars | Blaine Gabbert still the starter

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 12:23:18 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said QB Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) is still the team's starter even though he may miss extended time after hearing his hamstring pop in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown how much time Gabbert will have to miss, so it's conceivable that Chad Henne could impress the coaching staff enough in his absence to win the job. We'll have to wait and see. Henne's return to the starting role should help the values of Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts, if anything. Henne is a mildly intriguing bye week filler at QB if you're desperate.

Jaguars | Justin Blackmon has big debut

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 19:03:53 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon made his regular season debut in Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams, and he hauled in five receptions for a game-high 136 yards and a touchdown. He was targeted nine times.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon should be added in all fantasy leagues if you need receiver help, as he is back from suspension and apparently ready to make an impact. His team will be behind plenty, so he should continue to see plenty of targets. He is a solid WR3/4 or flex fantasy option going forward.

Jaguars | Praise heaped on Justin Blackmon

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 10:11:29 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley had good things to say about how WR Justin Blackmon handled his four-game suspension. "He's done tremendous these last four weeks," Bradley said. "His body fat has dropped and his weight has gained. He's in really, really good shape right now. He's done everything that we've asked of him, he went on the trips with us. I could go with a list on some of the things we asked him to do that he's done, so he's a in a great frame of mind right now." Blackmon is likely to start in Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Don't forget about Blackmon or pass him up because he plays for the Jaguars. He's the team's most electric receiver, and he could make an immediate impact this week against a weak Rams team. Cecil Shorts' value may drop a tad due to the return of Blackmon.

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 08:27:22 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts had eight catches for 143 yards in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: He led all receivers with the effort. With Justin Blackmon's return from suspension looming, Shorts could benefit upon his return. He remains a bye-week fill-in for now.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon (groin), who did not dress for the preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, against the Miami Dolphins due to a groin injury, had to be escorted from the field following a heated argument with Miami Dolphins CB Nolan Carroll in the second quarter. He was in street clothes, and he got into a verbal altercation which intensified to the point head coach Gus Bradley had to intervene. RB Maurice Jones-Drew calmed down Blackmon and escorted him to the locker room. Blackmon returned to the sideline to start the second half, and he was seen hugging head coach Gus Bradley.
