Blaine Gabbert was awful. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert had yet another day to forget. The second-year player completed just seven of 19 passes for 53 yards and a touchdown before leaving in the 4th quarter with an apparent leg injury. The Jaguars went on to lose 27-7.

Fantasy Impact; You shouldn't have Gabbert on your team in the first place, but after the team gave him new weapons in Justin Blackmon and Laurent Robinson, there was at least some hope of him being a useful bench player. That obviously didn't happen today, and don't be surprised to be fans start calling for Chad Henne. Gabbert just looks out of his element, and his poor play will drag down the fantasy value of everyone else around him. He'll try again against the Colts in Week 3.
