Blaine Gabbert carries no fantasy value, with or without injury

Michael Hickey

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert is probable in Week 8. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has been listed as probable by the team in Friday's injury report. The Jags QB has been battling a shoulder injury, but was a full participant on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Gabbert is expected to start today versus the Green Bay Packers.

Gabbert suffered an injury to his non-throwing shoulder, so it should not affect his motion terribly on game day. However, the Jags' QB faces an awfully daunting task with Aaron Rodgers and the Pack on the horizon.

Fantasy Analysis: Even though Gabbert is expected to start, in no way has he proven to be a viable fantasy starter in any league. The second-year QB had improved in some aspects, but still looks to be miles away from having any sort of fantasy relevance.

Gabbert is not a fantasy option in Week 8, nor the rest of the season. The Jags should be expected to throw the ball quite a bit in order to keep up with Rodgers and the Pack, but it does not mean Gabbert will be playing mistake-free football. Avoid the Jaguars QB at all costs.
