Blaine Gabbert could miss time, fantasy value non-existent

Scott Kane-USA TODAY Sports

Blaine Gabbert could miss time due to his hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Jacksonville Jaguars could lose quarterback Blaine Gabbert for an extended period of time, according to a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. The report suggests that Gabbert "heard his hamstring pop," though it also says there is no definitive timetable on his recovery from said injury.

Gabbert threw for 181 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions before sustaining the injury. He was named the team's starting quarterback before the start of the regular season, but missed time due to injury already this season. He has attempted just 42 passes this season, and has a single touchdown against a whopping seven interceptions.

It's unclear how long he'll be gone, but it does sound like the injury is serious. It would be a disappointing turn of events, but it's hard to suggest he would have been the starter for much longer anyway, given his stats.

Fantasy Impact: If you're starting Gabbert in fantasy, then your team is in dire need of some help. You'd better have two top tier running backs and a top tier wide receiver if you hope to win any games. To this point, Gabbert has been miserable on the field and in fantasy, but Chad Henne might actually be a semi-decent fantasy quarterback. If you're relying on Gabbert, picking up Henne is a smart play at this point.
