Jaguars | Blake Bortles in better situation

Sun, 15 May 2016 11:36:33 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will be able to jump into offseason work right away on his own because he knows the offense now, as opposed to last year when he waiting for instruction, according to offensive coordinator Greg Olson.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles really improved in his sophomore season last year, throwing for over 4,400 yards and 35 touchdowns en route to high-end QB1 status. He still has to work on throwing fewer interceptions, but he's a QB1 candidate again this season.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles happy with new center

Fri, 13 May 2016 18:32:16 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said it was a good move to have OG Brandon Linder take over the starting center spot, and Bortles said Linder has been doing well with the transition.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles already has plenty of weapons to throw to, and his numbers should only improve if Jacksonville can sure up its offensive line. Unless you play in a format that greatly penalizes interceptions, Bortles should be viewed a QB1 candidate.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles excited about Marqise Lee

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 21:31:02 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said it has been hard to build chemistry with WR Marqise Lee because of all Lee's injuries, but he said the receiver brings something special to the table.

Fantasy Tip: Lee has explosive ability, but even when healthy, he now finds himself a part of a crowded receiving corps. At best, he is a late-round lottery ticket at this point.

Jaguars | Bigger role for Julius Thomas?

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 21:19:17 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas is the best pass-catching tight end in the NFL, according to WR Allen Robinson, and QB Blake Bortles expects to have better chemistry with Thomas in their second year together.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas showed flashes of his upside down the stretch last season, and if he can stay healthy, which is no guarantee, he should be a top-five fantasy tight end.

NFL | Paxton Lynch compared to Blake Bortles

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 20:55:13 -0800

Former University of Memphis QB Paxton Lynch is being trained by former Univeristy of Central Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Taaffe, and Taaffe said Lynch has a stronger arm than Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles, who played for Central Florida when Taaffe was the coordinator.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch is expected to be one of the first quarterbacks selected in the 2016 NFL Draft, and while he has excellent physical tools, there may be a bit of an adjustment period as he learns to play under center.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles tops in interceptions

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 16:42:54 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles led all quarterbacks this season with 18 interceptions.

Fantasy Tip: Peyton Manning may have led the league in picks if he had played the whole season, but Bortles still showed his sometimes erratic quarterback play despite an otherwise solid sophomore season. He did throw for 4,428 yards and 35 touchdowns, but he must cut down on the interceptions if he wants to become a consistent QB1 as his career gets going.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles has broken thumb

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 10:32:30 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (thumb) suffered a broken thumb on his non-throwing hand in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Thankfully for any Bortles owners, this comes as the season winds down. Bortles and the Jaguars passing game broke out in 2015, and he finished as a top-five fantasy passer. His thumb should be healed in plenty of time for next year, and he'll be squarely in the discussion as a legitimate QB1 in fantasy drafts.
