The Jacksonville Jaguarsannounced that Chad Henne will make another start at quarterback in Week 7 against the San Diego Chargers. Henne made the start in place of Blaine Gabbert in Week 6, and kept the Jaguars somewhat close in a loss to the Denver Broncos.
That itself is a feat, given that the Broncos have steamrolled every team they've faced this season. He completed 27 of 42 passes for 303 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. Obviously, that's not a great stat line, and he needs to be able to find the end zone, but the Jags have definitely done worse this season.
Henne also started in Week 2 and Week 3 when Gabbert was out with a lacerated hand. It's likely that Henne will go rigt back to being the backup when Gabbert recovers from his injury.
Fantasy Impact: Henne does have the skillset to have a good game ... it's just not likely. If you're in a position where you're thinking about starting Henne, then you have some serious issues on your fantasy team. He's not a good option for this week and he's not a good option any week. Pass on Henne, and pass on Gabbert when he comes back, too.
