FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Justin Blackmon had bust written all over him by the “fantasy experts.” Through the first half of the season, that looked like it might be the case. However, he shined down the stretch, by picking up 615 yards in his final seven games. He finished the season with 64 catches with 865 yards and five touchdowns.

Not only was Blackmon more involved, but his friend on the other side of the field, Cecil Shorts, was as well.

Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has been the butt of jokes and ridicule for most of the off-season. Coming on the heels of a former Jags assistant blasting Gabbert twice, stud running back Maurice Jones-Drew has had enough.
Jones unleashed on all of Gabberts targets via the Florida Times-Union.
“OK, I’m going to hit this target,” he said.
“For that coach to come out...

In fact, if Greg Jones played in a city other than Jacksonville, he probably would have made a Pro Bowl by now. Vicious blocker. #Texans — Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) March 26, 2013
