Week 12 Power Ranks: Jaguars leave the cellar for the first time this year marking Chad Henne’s finest NFL accomplishment

It isn’t often that a move up from last place on our ranks gets you the lead story, but it isn’t often that the loss of a starting quarterback allows for an offensive rebirth, either. For the first time this season we have a new low man on the totem pole; after a week 11 …

Coach: Henne could win starter's job

Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said that if quarterback Chad Henne performs well over the remaining games this season, he will be the presumed starter heading into 2013.

Chad Henne to start for Jaguars against Titans

Chad Henne has been promoted to the role of Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback for the upcoming game against the Tennessee Titals. Henne replaced an injured Blain Gabbert (eblow) and kept Jacksonville in the game against Houston on Sunday. The Jaguars ultimately lost 43-37 in overtime. In the contest, Henne went 16-of-33 passing for 354 yards and four touchdowns. There had...

Fantasy football is getting closer to the playoffs, so we’d like to help you out by providing some advice heading into key weeks. There were a few injuries over the weekend that have led to some recommended pickups. We take a look at those and a few other players below. Ronnie Hillman, RB, Broncos – Willis McGahee suffered a torn MCL in his right knee and a broken leg during...

Rookie Bryce Brown about to get his shot

Bryce Brown watched football on television last Thanksgiving, wondering if he would ever get a chance to play in the NFL after a brief, checkered collegiate career. Now the rookie running back is preparing for his first start since 2008. In front of a national TV audience, no less. With LeSean McCoy sidelined by a concussion, Brown is expected to get a bulk of the carries when...

Eagles Odds and Ends: McCoy, Brown, Foles, MNF

The look into the future will most likely continue this week on MNF as LeSean McCoy is still in stage 1 of his recovery from a concussion. Filling in will be Bryce Brown the rookie who in limited action has shown he is worthy of the start. Brown who has gained over 4 yards a carry should get the majority if not all of McCoy’s workload will get the chance to showcase his talent...

Blaine Gabbert era likely over in Jacksonville

The Jacksonville Jaguars lost today. That's no surprise to anyone who's paid them any attention this season. The manner in which they lost, however, was nothing short of shocking. The Jaguars played the AFC's top team, the Houston Texans, today, and they led much of the game. With just 8 minutes to go, the Jaguars held a 14 point lead, but it just didn't last. ...

Backup quarterbacks are useful in evaluating young guns

This weekend, the Houston Texans nearly dropped a game to one of the worst teams in the NFL. It was an offensive shootout with little defense to speak of from either team, and the Texans emerged from overtime with the victory. The other story line that came from the Texans near-miss was the possible end of the Blaine Gabbert era in Jacksonville. After leaving the game early with...

Rash of injuries shakes up RBs

If Week 10 was the week of the tight end, Week 11 must have been week of the wide receiver. Justin Blackmon and Andre Johnson turned in top-30 historical performances with both wide receivers combining for more than 500 receiving yards. The NFL looks to have more parity than ever with Atlanta, Dallas and the Texans narrowly escaping with wins despite being heavy home favorites. Another...

Jaguars show grit in OT loss to Houston

  The Jacksonville Jaguars – despite having just eight wins on the season, being injury plagued and having a severe lack of talent and depth – showed Sunday they still have something left in the tank and that they haven’t given up yet. Despite being written off by the media, and to be honest myself, the Jaguars showed some grit Sunday in the face of the vaunting Houston...

Fantasy football 2QB leagues

The bye weeks finally ended, but at quarterback, matchups are still key for two-QB leagues. There are no major injuries outside of a few concussed quarterbacks who could return soon, and there are plenty of lower-tier passers performing admirably enough to warrant use. For those players, recent trends are more important than their body of work, so rolling the dice on a hot Chad Henne...

Waiver Wire: Week Twelve

This weeks waiver wire should be attached to the injury report. All five are related to an injury or returning to an injury. It’s that time of year in the NFL. Ronnie Hillman – RB Den: Willis McGahee is out six to eight weeks and Ronnie Hillman is in. He had 12 carries for 43 yards last week but that is sure to be upped as we move on. Lance Ball will steal some carries, let...
