Blaine Gabbert is probable. We break down the fantasy implications.

Blaine Gabbert (glute) is probable for Sunday's game against the Colts after putting in a whole week of practice.

Analysis: He's going to play and he's going to be on fantasy benches across the country. Gabbert had a stellar preseason, but he hasn't quite put it together when the games count. The good news is that he hasn't thrown any picks, but a 5.4 YPA isn't exactly going to move the needle on whether or not fantasy owners should count on him. Sure, he does have a favorable matchup against the Colts and could be productive. However, Chuck Pagano should come up with some ways to put some serious pressure on the sophomore.
