Justin Blackmon was the biggest victim of Blaine Gabbert's incompetence with zero catches. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon was a fantasy disappointment in Week 2, getting zero catches against the Houston Texans. He was targeted four times, but Blaine Gabbert's accuracy issues did him no favors. The Jaguars went on to lose 27-7.

Fantasy Impact: Jacksonville held the ball for just 16:43 minutes all game, with 117 total yards. It was an across-the-board disaster for an offense that the team spent big resources on to upgrade in the offseason. Blackmon, the No. 5 overall pick, is considered one of the top fantasy rookies in the league, but if the QB play doesn't improve (whether from Gabbert or Chad Henne) his value is up in the air. The Jaguars play the Colts in Week 3.
