Jaguars | Blake Bortles has uneven performance

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 14:52:21 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles went 24-for-38 for 194 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3. He also rushed for 17 yards on three carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles has thrown six interceptions in his first three games but also has five touchdowns during that span. He is scheduled to face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4 and should be a decent No. 1 quarterback for fantasy owners.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles sharp in brief action

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 21:04:37 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed eight of his 11 pass attempts for 85 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles connected with Allen Hurns and T.J. Yeldon on touchdown strikes, and he certainly looks like he is ready to take another step forward. As long as Allen Robinson, Hurns and Julius Thomas can stay healthy, Bortles will be a solid QB1 in all fantasy formats.

Jaguars | Coach happy with Blake Bortles

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 05:55:49 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley has been happy with QB Blake Bortles even though he has completed only 56.9% of his passes with four interceptions during team drills. "I've been very, very pleased with Blake; very excited about him," Bradley said. "He has a stronger command of the offense and he's playing with good poise. If there's a mistake made, he reacts quicker to it and recovers quicker from it."

Fantasy Tip: Bortles is coming off a terrific 2015 season when he posted 4,428 yards and 35 touchdowns. He will have plenty of weapons to work with in the passing game and should be a solid No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles liked to go deep

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 10:27:06 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was tied for first with Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers in completions of at least 25 yards (39), and he was ninth in completions (355), sixth in attempts (606) and seventh in yards (4,428). However, Bortles also had 23 total turnovers in 2015, only a 58.6 completion percentage and took 51 sacks.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles made big strides last year with Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns also taking the next step in production. The Jacksonville offense is expected to continue improving, too, which is a scary thought. Bortles, if he stays healthy, should be a legitimate QB1 worth taking a look at in the early middle rounds.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles talks with other QBs

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 14:12:47 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles talked with Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer this offseason to see how he could improve his play.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles is coming off a solid 2015 season and will have one of the better wide receiver groups to work with in the NFL. Owners should consider Bortles as a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles in line for extension

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 14:00:40 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will receive a contract extension as soon as the collective bargaining agreement allows the Jaguars to sign him in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles recorded 4,428 yards, 35 touchdowns and 18 interceptions in 2015 and will have all of his top receivers back this season. He should be a solid starting quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Jaguars | Rashad Greene starting in slot

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 19:18:53 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Rashad Greene has seen a majority of his reps as the first-team slot receiver, and he said he and QB Blake Bortles are becoming more comfortable working with each other.

Fantasy Tip: Greene figures to be the fourth option in a loaded Jacksonville passing attack. His value is limited to deeper PPR formats.

Jaguars | Julius Thomas busy at OTAs

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 19:52:37 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas' situation is much more stable this season, as he and QB Blake Bortles are building rapport during the offseason program. "Julius looks good," offensive coordinator Greg Olson said Monday, June 6. "Guys that have been here have been relatively healthy and Julius has been one of those guys, so he's been able to get a lot of reps and a lot of work in so far."

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has posted 29 touchdowns over the past three seasons, which is even more than Seattle's Jimmy Graham and New England's Rob Gronkowski during the same span. If Thomas can stay healthy he is a tremendous sleeper for fantasy owners in the middle rounds on draft day.

Jaguars | Faster pace for Jacksonville offense?

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 10:16:13 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles and the Jacksonville offense have been practicing more of a no-huddle offense this offseason. Offensive coordinator Greg Olson said the coaching staff felt like Bortles felt comfortable with the two-minute offense and they wanted to use more of that.

Fantasy Tip: Even if the Jaguars use a more fast paced offense, Bortles is almost certainly due for a worse season to some degree. It will be difficult to match or exceed his the 4,428 yards and 35 touchdowns he threw for a year ago, not to mention an ideally more established run game with T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory. Bortles is in low-end QB1 territory entering the 2016 season.
