Jaguars | Jacksonville seeking QB options

Sun, 11 Mar 2018 11:52:39 -0700

The Jacksonville Jaguars are "heavily interested" in finding a veteran who can "push" QB Blake Bortles this offseason or take over for him if he "falls off a cliff," according to the Boston Globe's Ben Volin.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles signed a new three-year, $54 million contract that includes $26.5 million guaranteed last month and seems to have the front office's support, but the fact remains Jacksonville spent most of last season hoping he would just manage the game. The Jaguars would be wise to seek an upgrade to Chad Henne because it's not hard to imagine a scenario in which Bortles struggles for a stretch next season.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles in rare company

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 16:00:03 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has thrown for 90 career passing touchdowns and just under 15,000 passing yards. Former NFL QBs Peyton Manning, Dan Marino and Drew Bledsoe and Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford are the only quarterbacks in NFL history to achieve those numbers before turning 26 years old. Bortles turns 26 in April.

Fantasy Tip: It's a strange world we live in when we can mention Bortles' name positively in the same sentence as Peyton Manning and Dan Marino. And while technically Bortles is not a part of that list since he has not reached 15,000 yards yet, he's practically there. Coming off an unsung season and after just signing a big contract extension, Bortles is an underrated potential QB1.

Fri, 23 Feb 2018 18:47:26 -0800

The Jacksonville Jaguars are actively pursuing upgrades to QB Blake Bortles, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: If Bortles ends up entering 2018 as the starter, he's a worthwhile fantasy backup. He has topped 20 touchdowns in each of the last three seasons and is sneaky effective as a runner.

Jaguars | Competition for Blake Bortles?

Sun, 11 Feb 2018 19:24:43 -0800

The Jacksonville Jaguars could select a quarterback in the first or second round of the 2018 NFL Draft to provide competition for QB Blake Bortles, according Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles' long-term future with the Jaguars remains in doubt, but he should at least be a quality QB2 in 2018. He has thrown more than 20 touchdowns in each of the last three seasons and has topped 300 rushing yards in all four years in the league.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles expected to stay

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 13:22:48 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) is expected to remain with the Jaguars despite recently undergoing surgery on his injured wrist, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport said the plan all along has been for Bortles to return as starter.

Fantasy Tip: The Jaguars have to be tempted to draft a quarterback in such a deep draft class, but Bortles improved in 2017 and quarterbacked Jacksonville to the AFC Championship. He has his fair share of mistakes, which he cut back on last season, but Bortles is an underrated fantasy quarterback thanks in no small part to his running ability.
