Jaguars | Jags expect more from Blake Bortles

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 10:21:30 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles went 15-for-27 for just 146 yards and an interception in the team's Week 12 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, and he hasn't tossed a touchdown in the last two games. Head coach Gus Bradley was critical of the whole offense, but he indicated that the team expects more from the rookie quarterback. Bradley said Bortles has been holding the ball too long in the pocket, and his decision making hasn't been up to par.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles has had more rough patches than bright spots in his rookie season, but you can't blame him too much, he's lacking serious weapons on offense. In Week 13, the Jags face the New York Giants, whose defense should allow Bortles to put up much better numbers. Consider Bortles ($4,300) a cheap sleeper option in Week 13.

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.
