FF Today's Take:Blackmon posted 64 catches, 865 yards and 5 touchdowns in his rookie year and was expected to start along side Cecil Shorts in Week 1. Slot man Jordan Shipley, Mohamed Massaquoi and rookie Ace Sanders currently round out the Jags receiving corps. Expect Massaquoi to fill Blackmon's void early in the season.
