Blackmon was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season and again for the final eight for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. His second suspension is indefinite and his reinstatement isn't a given. In the four games he played, Blackmon had 415 receiving yards and a touchdown on 29 catches.

Insight: Blackmon had an embarrassing DUI arrest last offseason and now he's been suspended for the first four games of next season after violating the league's substance abuse policy.

12/30/2012 5:45:00 PM

Description: With Cecil Shorts III sidelined with a concussion, Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon drew 12 targets from QB Chad Henne Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: Blackmon finished with six catches for 57 yards. The reward is higher with Chad Henne at QB over Blaine Gabbert but the rookie is still a shaky receiver play in the fantasy playoffs, especially when Shorts returns.
 
12/6/2012 11:07:00 AM
Description: According to Jets coach Rex Ryan, New York's best cornerback Antonio Cromartie will line up opposite Justin Blackmon "most of the time" Sunday.
Insight: Blackmon had a disappointing day against the Bills Sunday, catching one pass for nine yards. With Cromartie slated to cover him in Week 14, another underwhelming game could be in the cards. Cecil Shorts (concussion) is a far better option if he's able to play.
