Justin Blackmon dominates fantasy in Week 11

Bob Levey

Justin Blackmon finally looked like a top draft pick on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chad Henne took the helm of the Jaguars offense in Week 11, and the passing game suddenly caught fire, primarily due to Justin Blackmon's performance. The rookie receiver finished with seven catches for a ridiculous 236 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets against the Texans.

Blackmon has seen an increase in production as of late, but no one could have expected this kind of breakout performance.

Fantasy Impact: The Blaine Gabbert era might be over in Jacksonville, at least for 2012. Henne replaced Gabbert early, and he managed to take Houston down to the wire in overtime. Blackmon was clearly the favorite target for Henne.

He should continue to see plenty of looks if Henne remains the starting quarterback. Don't expect unbelievable numbers every week, but certainly pick up Blackmon if he's available in your league, which he likely is.
