Blaine Gabbert, QB, Jaguars
Let's be honest: If you're looking for a viable starting quarterback option at this point in the season, things are probably not going great for your team. And it's not like Gabbert has picked apart defenses with his pinpoint accuracy. He is averaging a whopping 1 TD pass per game. And yes, there's the Bears game, where he actually put up negative points. Still, he topped 300 yards for the first time Sunday against Green Bay, and it's not like Detroit can stop anybody on defense. If you gotta roll the dice, you gotta roll the dice.
Last week: 303 passing yards, 1 TD
This week: vs. Lions
