Blaine Gabbert is expected to play in Week 3. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey expects Blaine Gabbert to play in Week 3 on the road against the Colts. Gabbert may be limited in practice throughout the week, but he should be ready to go when Sunday rolls around.

Fantasy Impact: Gabbert looked much improved from 2011 after Week1 of his second season, but that thought was completely erased when he took on the Texans this past Sunday. Houston possesses one of the toughest defenses in the league, a fact that didn't bode well for Jacksonville. Gabbert completed just 7 of 19 passes for 53 yards and one touchdown. It's unlikely many fantasy owners consider starting Gabbert right now, but he should be playing in Week 3 if you're interested.
