Justin Blackmon has monster fantasy game in loss to Broncos

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon catches a pass over Denver Broncos safety Rahim Moore - Doug Pensinger

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon caught 14 passes for 190 yards in the Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon caught 14 passes for 190 yards but did not find the touchdown in the Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos. After fellow wide receiver Cecil Shorts went down with a shoulder injury on the first offensive series, Blackmon got the bulk of the targets. He was targeted a whopping 20 times by quarterback Chad Henne though they weren't able to connect on a touchdown pass. Blackmon's return from his four game suspension has been highly productive and if Shorts is lost he will continue to see a lot of looks. Unfortunately, the Jaguars quarterback situation clouds his potential production.

Fantasy impact: Blackmon saw the ball plenty on Sunday, but unfortunately, he and Chad Henne were not able to connect on a touchdown pass. Fellow wide receiver Cecil Shorts could be lost for a while to a shoulder injury and Blackmon would get the bulk of the targets from whomever is throwing him the ball. Fantasy owners better hope Henne gets the job as the Jaguars offense moves the ball when he is under center. The Jaguars will face the San Diego Chargers in Week 7. The injury situation to Gabbert should become more clearly as the week progresses but Blackmon looks like a must start at the moment.
