Jaguars | Blake Bortles starting Thursday

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 14:15:35 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (foot) will start Thursday night.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles ($3,800) is still best left out of lineups with a tough test versus the Tennesee Titans combined with his inconsistent play throughout the year.

Jaguars | Jags happy with Blake Bortles

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:11:34 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has earned positive reviews from the team in his rookie season after being thrust into the spotlight early this year. "That is not the case with Blake Bortles," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport was told by Jaguars sources. "They believe it is a good decision, a positive decision for the long-term future of the franchise to have him play this year." The Jaguars like Bortles' mental toughness, deep-ball accuracy and late-game poise.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles ($3,800) has taken his share of lumps in his rookie season without much offensive protection around him. He could be a fine QB down the road, but for fantasy football purposes, he's not there yet, and he shouldn't be started Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans if he plays.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles listed as questionable

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 10:30:09 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (foot) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Bortles has a chance to play in Week 16, but owners will have to check the inactive list. Bortles has a favorable matchup against the Tennessee Titans and only costs $3,800 on FantasyScore, but owners should be able to find a better option.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles looks good in practice

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 13:11:48 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (foot) was jogging, throwing and moving around well while being limited at practice Tuesday, Dec. 16. He showed no signs of being limited by a right mid-foot sprain during the walkthrough session, and head coach Gus Bradley is cautiously optimistic that Bortles will be able to play in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans Thursday, Dec. 18. "I felt good," Bortles said. "It's still sore a little bit. But, I thought I was able to do some stuff and move around. I thought it would've been hard to stand around in a walking boot for another day. … I have a couple more days to get as ready as possible, but I definitely plan on playing."

Fantasy Tip: It's looking increasingly likely that Bortles will suit up for the game against the Titans on a short week. If he is indeed not showing many limitations from his injury, starting him at FantasyScore at $3,800 could pay off handsomely as a sleeper option.

Jaguars | OC thinks Blake Bortles will play

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 10:42:20 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (foot) is expected to play in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans Thursday, Dec. 18, according to offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch. Even though Bortles didn't practice Monday, Dec. 15, Fisch is preparing as though Bortles will start Thursday. "As far as I know, it's going to be Blake," Fisch said. The Jaguars will play it by ear and see how much Bortles does in practice these next few days.

Fantasy Tip: It's good news for Bortles, but coming off an injury on a short week usually doesn't spell fantasy football success, especially for a rookie. Even with a great matchup against the Tennessee Titans, risking it with Bortles at FantasyScore doesn't seem like the greatest idea.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles confident he will play

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 10:29:39 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (foot) said his foot felt fine during a team walkthrough Tuesday, Dec. 16, and he is confident he will be ready to play this week.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup is a good one, but it may be wise to look elsewhere this week. It is extremely risky to play Bortles on a short week with the injury issues he is dealing with. Chad Henne ($3,800; 7.6% of cap) would start if Bortles can't go, and is a nice sleeper option this week if he plays.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles out of boot Tuesday

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 07:48:59 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (foot) is out of the walking boot on his mid-foot sprain Tuesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Chad Henne ($3,800; 7.6% of your cap) would start if Bortles can't play. He has a good matchup against the Tennessee Titans, but he would be an unorthodox play on FantasyScore to load up elsewhere.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles doesn't practice

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 17:01:37 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (foot) did not practice Monday, Dec. 15. The Jaguars didn't actually practice Monday, so Bortles' status is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles is dealing with a mid foot sprain, so it's highly unlikely he'll play on a short week against the Tennessee Titans. Chad Henne would likely start in Bortles' absence, and Henne could be a fine sleeper selection at FantasyScore.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles too indecisive

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 15:21:17 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles, who has been sacked 46 times in just over 10 games this year, needs to improve his decision making in the pocket, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Bortles has taken a pounding this year partly because he is holding onto the ball too long instead of making a quick throw or throwing the ball away.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles (foot) isn't expected to play Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans because of a mid foot sprain. Avoid him at FantasyScore, but consider Chad Henne a nice sleeper option for the QB position.

Jaguars | Jags continue to struggle with protection

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 15:15:34 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was sacked eight times in the team's Week 15 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, which was the fifth game in a row where he was sacked at least five times. Bortles had 10 dropbacks against the blitz, and they lost 17 yards on those plays, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Bortles has been sacked 46 times this year, and the Jags have given up 62 sacks in 14 games, which is one shy of the team record set in 2001.

Fantasy Tip: Luckily for Jacksonville, they'll get a break this Thursday when they face the reeling Tennessee Titans defense. With Bortles out, Chad Henne is likely to start, and he could be a deep sleeper that pays off at FantasyScore for a cheap price.
