Jaguars | Blake Bortles leads in pick-6 passes

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 01:43:32 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles, who had two passes intercepted and returned for touchdowns Sunday, Oct. 26 against the Miami Dolphins, leads the NFL with four interceptions returned for a TD.

Fantasy Tip: He's going to have his struggles, but Bortles will keep his job barring injury or an even worse downturn in his numbers. Still, there are likely better options out there on FantasyScore if you need a backup quarterback.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles was ready to start

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 11:18:38 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was ready to be the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Bortles was rusty in his first NFL start but provided signs of life in a previously dormant Jaguars' offense.

Fantasy Tip: Don't rely on Bortles to be your starting quarterback just yet. In fact, he should remain a low-end QB2 at best throughout the season. He just doesn't have the necessary supporting cast to be a weekly starter. Though, he may be able to provide a spot start or two.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles could stretch field

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 18:19:15 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed four passes of more than 20 yards after he relieved QB Chad Henne in the second half of the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: Even at the cheap price of $5,000 (10% of cap) at FantasyScore, Bortles is a very risky play in Week 4 against a solid San Diego defense. However, the speedy Allen Hurns could make an affordable upside pick if Bortles continues to take shots down the field. Hurns will take up 11.8% of the cap ($5,900) in Week 4.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles could save club money

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 03:06:21 -0700

Assuming Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles remains the starter, the team could save $1.25 million in salary cap space this season. This is because QB Chad Henne would not hit playing-time incentives in his contract.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles to start Week 4

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 14:42:33 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said Sunday, Sept. 21, that QB Blake Bortles will start in Week 4 against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles came on for the ineffective Chad Henne and completed 14 of his 24 passes for 223 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while also running twice for 30 yards. He might be worth a look in FantasyScore if the price is right, but as a rookie expect some mistakes, too.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles enters game

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 11:45:55 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles entered the team's Week 3 game in the second half after QB Chad Henne was benched.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Bortles will keep the job or if Henne will get another start. Owners should monitor the situation during practice next week, but neither quarterback should be an option for most owners at this point.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was not considered to play in Week 2 as QB Chad Henne was sacked 10 times in the game. However, head coach Gus Bradley wouldn't comment on whether they will consider starting Bortles in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles would be an intriguing matchup play if he were to be anointed the starter.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles improving in practice

Sat, 13 Sep 2014 05:21:32 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has a great attitude and is showing signs of improving in practice, according to head coach Gus Bradley. "I go back to that individual period that has been really helpful to him," Bradley said. "He just had another one today. I think those periods and going against the defense to see the different looks. The challenge is sometimes we're telling him where to look to go with the ball. Maybe he doesn't follow his progression but his footwork, his throws and things like that he's doing a nice job."

Jaguars | Blake Bortles to start

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 13:30:13 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will start the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a surprise with most starters resting. Chad Henne has already been named starter for the regular season opener, but Bortles could end up starting some games before all is said and done. Still, he's not worth a draft pick at this juncture.
