Chad Henne QB JAC Nov 21 '1213 Comments

Coach Mike Mularkey stated Wednesday that Chad Henne will be the Jaguars' starter entering 2013 if he plays well in his six-game audition to close out the season.

It's the final death knell for the Dynasty value of Blaine Gabbert (shoulder surgery), GM Gene Smith's hand-chosen franchise QB as the 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft. Mularkey had already decided to roll with Henne the rest of the way based on "performance," not Gabbert's injury. If Smith objected to the changing of the guard, he either lost the power struggle or tacitly acknowledged that Gabbert is no longer the future. With five inviting matchups in the next six games, it should surprise no one if Henne flirts with QB1 value while solidifying the fantasy values of Cecil Shorts, Justin Blackmon, and Marcedes Lewis.

Chad Henne or Colin Kaepernick?

Im in the same boat......the team I'm playing has J Blackmon. Figured if he's scoring then I nullify his td's and some yardage. But then again if neither score then I'm doomed. On the other hand Kaepernick is going up against the worst pass defense in the league. Vic has been killing me all season. Sure would be nice to get it right this week. still have a good chance to make the playoffs!

Gabbert is better than Henne

I'll give you that Henne is not the most accurate of QBs BUT the guy now has two of his past 5 games started with 40+ fantasy pts . . .and when was the last time Gabbert did that or had 4tds in a game. . .don't bother looking it up . ..

gabbert is horrible. henne may or may not be the better option. that's the point of this trial period. saying gabbert is better is both premature and entirely ignorant.
