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.

Jaguars | Chad Henne to start in Week 1

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 22:00:13 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne will start the Week 1 game ahead of rookie QB Blake Bortles, head coach Gus Bradley said Friday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles has more fantasy upside, and the way he has played this preseason it's hard to believe that Bradley will not give the rookie a shot to start the opener. Henne is nothing more than a low-end QB2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles works with first-team

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 17:44:36 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles worked with the first-team offense for the first time during practice Monday, Aug. 18, taking three snaps in 11-on-11 drills.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles hasn't disappointed, but the Jaguars continue to bring him along slowly. Chad Henne should open the season as the starter, limiting Bortles' value to keeper leagues at this point.

Jaguars | Pleased with Blake Bortles' progress

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 15:04:29 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has impressed the team with his progress in training camp and the preseason so far, according to head coach Gus Bradley.

Fantasy Tip: Barring a catastrophic event or injury to Chad Henne, Bortles will enter Week 1 holding the clipboard on the sideline, and he's expected to sit the bench for most, if not all, of the season. It's nice to see Bortles play well early, but he shouldn't sniff any single-year rosters for fantasy football.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles to get first-team reps

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 11:55:30 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will get reps with the first-team in practice next week, as well as in the team's third preseason game Friday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: While Bortles has looked impressive, he does not have much fantasy football value at all outside of keeper leagues.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles solid in second game

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 20:31:24 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed 11 of 17 passes for 160 yards in the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles isn't worth drafting outside of keeper leagues at this point, but if he continues his solid play, he will be starting for Jacksonville sooner rather than later.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles to get first-team reps?

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 14:32:07 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles may eventually receive first-team repetitions, according to head coach Gus Bradley.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Bortles does end up as the team's starter, he's not a viable starting fantasy quarterback. It's best to stay away.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles sharp in debut

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 19:29:43 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed seven of his 11 pass attempts for 117 yards in his team debut in the preseason opener Friday, Aug. 8, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bortles entered the game with the second team to a huge ovation.

Fantasy Tip: It was just one preseason game against a smattering of starters, backups and rookies, but Bortles certainly looked like the best quarterback on the field for either side. It is not clear if he will win the starting job in Week 1, but he clearly has a bright future. Fantasy owners will want him as a low-end QB2 if he can secure the starting gig.
