Jaguars | Have high hopes for Stephen Burton
Tue, 05 Nov 2013 11:31:09 -0800
The Jacksonville Jaguars coaching staff likes what they have in WR Stephen Burton, and they foresee him stepping up now that WR Justin Blackmon is suspended for the remainder of the season. "This young man has some potential," head coach Gus Bradley said. "We're going to try to speed it up and get him to where we can trust him, the quarterbacks can trust him and his teammates trust him. He's done a better job. Maybe a situation like this will light a fuse for him where he sees this opportunity and now we'll capture it. We'll see."
It'll be interesting to see who steps up opposite Cecil Shorts with Blackmon out now. Mike Brown is probably the most intriguing for fantasy purposes right now, but keep an eye on Burton and Stephen Williams, too, in deeper setups.
