Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert threw for 181 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions before leaving with a hamstring injury in the third quarter of the Week 5 loss to the St. Louis Rams. One of his interceptions was a pick-six, and he also fumbled twice, although they were recovered.
Fantasy impact: The Jaguars are committed to this turnover machine even though Chad Henne came in and threw for 89 yards and a touchdown. Gabbert's hamstring will need to be watched, but let's face it, if you are playing him in fantasy you are in desperation mode already.
Neither Jaguars quarterback can be counted on as a good fantasy play in any league. Gabbert is terrible and Henne isn't starting even though he is clearly better. Gabbert left the game with a hamstring injury, but Gus Bradley stated postgame he is still the starter. Gabbert has 481 passing yards, one touchdown and seven interceptions on the season. He shouldn't be starting on any fantasy team and won't be a good fantasy option all year. The Jaguars will face the Denver Broncos in Week 6.
