The Jaguars have not been a team that has been too fantasy friendly, but much of those struggles came against some of the league's top defenses. In week 10, following their bye week, the Jaguars will face the league's worst defense when they play the Indianapolis Colts.

While Maurice Jones-Drew is certainly the safest bet for fantasy points on the Jaguars offense, quarterback Blaine Gabbert might be poised to finally make a fantasy impact of his own. His strongest fantasy performance so far this season was when he accumulated 221 yards passing and one touchdown against the Bengals.

Gabbert could be an interesting option this week for fantasy owners that have struggled to find success at the quarterback position. If the Jaguars are going to breakout as an offense, all signs point towards this Sunday's game against the Colts as the game to do so. If they do, expect Gabbert to have a stat-line to match.
