Week 2 vs. ATL
Receiving: 5 / 75 / 0 on 6 targets
Northcutt was only targeted once in the first half, but took advantage of the passes thrown his way in the second half to post some pretty good numbers.

Week 6 vs. HOU
Receiving: 4 / 46 / 0 on 6 targets
The Jaguars set Northcutt in the slot to get away from CB Dunta Robinson's coverage. Northcutt is a sure handed veteran receiver who seems to have gained the confidence of Garrard.
Week 7 vs. IND
Receiving: 3 / 20 / 0 on 7 targets
The first four passes directed to Northcutt came from Garrard in the first 18 minutes of the game. Gray then threw his first INT on a pass to Northcutt, and like Wilford, Northcutt then disappeared until the fourth quarter, when Gray began looking for him on the final Jacksonville drive of the game. One of the fourth quarter attempts came in the red zone.

Receiving: 1 / 15 / 1 on 3 targets

Week 11 vs. SD
Receiving: 3 / 36 / 0 on 5 targets
Northcutt showed he still has some nice open-field moves both on his receptions and with his special teams play. Still, his value forward is limited in that the Jaguars don't have a true number one option in the passing game.
