Justin Blackmon injury: Jaguars WR probable, should start for fantasy owners

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon is listed as probable for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon is listed as probable on the official injury report. Blackmon is dealing with a hamstring injury that has hampered him in practice the last couple weeks, but he's been playing through it and Sunday should be no different.

Against the San Diego Chargers in Week 7, Blackmon caught six passes for 58 yards. Prior to that, he put up huge numbers in his first two games after returning from a suspension. He caught five passes for 136 yards against the St. Louis Rams and 14 passes for 190 yards against the Denver Broncos.

While he won't be limited by his injury (or at least, it would be shocking if he was), he will have a tougher time on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers; the 49ers have one of the better secondaries in the league.

Fantasy Impact: Blackmon should be good to go with the injury. It would be a surprise if he missed the game or was limited. Fantasy owners must be pleased with his amazing production through three games this season, though this matchup will be a tough one. Still, he's as big a must-start as any receiver in the league right now.
