Justin Blackmon nursing groin, hamstring injuries as fantasy value rises

Doug Pensinger

Blackmon came out of Sunday's game pretty sore, and who could blame him?

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon will be held out of practice on Wednesday with groin and hamstring injuries suffered in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Denver Broncos, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.

Blackmon caught 14 passes for 190 yards in the game, so it's not a huge shock that he's dealing with some soreness. The injury doesn't appear to be a major concern, which is good for the Jaguars, who have Cecil Shorts dealing with an injury at the moment.

Fantasy spin: Blackmon has emerged as a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy football, which is incredible given the Jaguars' quarterback situation. Chad Henne is locked in on Blackmon and has given a huge boost to the second-year wide receiver's fantasy value.

Consider Blackmon a must start at wide receiver moving forward, regardless of your league format. He's a stud.
