Jaguars | Justin Blackmon making progress

Thu, 05 Feb 2015 15:17:42 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon is progressing, regarding his off-field issues, but still has strides to make. The NFL is in control of his situation as of now. Blackmon pleaded no contest late last year to a misdemeanor for marijuana possession, among a litany of other problems.

Fantasy Tip: It's still unknown whether Blackmon will be available for the 2015 season. Even if he does return, he'll still need to prove himself again on the field before he's worth considering for a fantasy roster.

Jaguars | Owner expects Justin Blackmon back?

Sun, 01 Feb 2015 05:59:45 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has "paid his dues" and has "his life together," according to owner Shahid Khan. Khan is also "very optimistic" Blackmon will return to the team next season.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon has a long road ahead of him if he is going to return to fantasy relevance. The potential is there, but fantasy owners will want to see on-field evidence before overreacting to the hype which could surround the former first-round pick. He hasn't played a game since Oct. 2013, remember.

Jaguars | Justin Blackmon to return in 2015?

Sun, 25 Jan 2015 18:13:24 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has overcome his issues, and plenty of league sources expect him to be back with the team in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon's fantasy value is still to be determined, and it will help to see him in training camp and the preseason to gauge how much of a factor he will be and how early. Still, if he can return to the form which made him a first-round draft pick, he could be a legitimate fantasy option in 2015. And his addition would help the appeal of Blake Bortles, too.

Jaguars | Jags not counting on Justin Blackmon

Tue, 30 Dec 2014 10:46:18 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon isn't necessarily in the team's plans for next season, according to general manager David Caldwell. However, the team would like to have him on the field if he's ready, and they aren't expected to release him, either. "I think we have to treat it as a luxury. If he comes back that's great, if he doesn't -- we can't count on it. We feel good about the three guys we've got and if he comes back that's even better," Caldwell said. The Jags have heard that Blackmon has dedicated himself to being healthier and returning to football. Jacksonville is under no financial obligation to keep Blackmon since he's not currently on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon still has a long road in order to return to action in the NFL, as he'll need to be reinstated by the commissioner next year. With Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee in the picture, Blackmon won't be guaranteed anything if he returns to the active roster next season.
