Jaguars | Blake Bortles receives new deal

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 16:30:09 -0800

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles agreed to a new three-year contract with the Jaguars Saturday, Feb. 24, worth $54 million, according to a source. The deal includes $26.5 million in guaranteed money and could be worth as much as $66.5 million with incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles improved his play in 2017 and will have most of his receivers back next season. He should be at least a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues and has a chance to low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues.

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

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.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles undergoes wrist surgery

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 20:56:01 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) had surgery on his right wrist Friday, Jan. 26, for a condition that had bothered him since December of 2016, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: As a first-round pick entering his fifth season, the surgery leaves Bortles in even more limbo, as his fifth-year club option is only guaranteed for injury. Bortles' place on the roster was already tenuous given the likelihood of quarterbacks such as Kirk Cousins and Alex Smith expected to be available and the Jaguars' new status as a place potentially available quarterbacks will want to go. At the moment, it's looking like Bortles may not be on the Jacksonville roster when the middle of March rolls around.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said he would be "thrilled" to remain with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The fourth-year quarterback will be an impending free agent in 2019.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles falls short of Super Bowl

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 15:33:41 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed 23-of-36 passes for 293 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles and his teammates were outscored 14-3 in the decisive fourth quarter to derail their chances at a first Super Bowl appearance, but it was a great season for the Jags. He finished the regular season with a 60.2 completion percentage, 3,687 yards and 21 touchdowns with 13 interceptions. As such, he'll be in the low-end QB1 fantasy discussion in larger leagues, but he should mostly be a QB2 in most formats.

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 13:31:38 -0800
