Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon was limited with an ankle injury in practice this week. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon was limited in Wednesday's practice with an apparent ankle injury. The severity of the injury is not yet known, but it's made the Jags' first-rounder questionable for Sunday's match-up against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Analysis: The Jaguars invested a high first round selection on the Oklahoma State wide receiver. Blackmon is expected to help turn this offense around, so if he is ready to go, he should get a lot of looks. Fantasy owners of Blackmon should monitor his progress into the weekend. There is a chance that Mike Mularkey and the Jags are playing it safe with Blackmon's injury, but if it turns out to be more serious than expected, he made require a sub in Week 1.
