Jaguars | More big plays from Blake Bortles?

Wed, 04 Jul 2018 16:33:10 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has earned the trust of offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, and Hackett said Bortles' improved decision making will allow him to be "a lot more aggressive" with his play calling.

Fantasy Tip: There were times when the Jaguars were winning in spite of Bortles, but he has topped 20 passing touchdowns and 300 rushing yards in each of the past three seasons. A few more shots down the field could boost his numbers a bit, but he should be a solid QB2 regardless.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles relaxed at practice

Sat, 02 Jun 2018 20:46:19 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has been "relaxed" at OTAs because he no longer needs to think about the plays or his footwork, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles can have his issues with turnovers, but he's also a good bet for 20-plus touchdown passes and a sneaky source of rushing yards. He's a solid QB2.

Jaguars | Jacksonville seeking QB options

Sun, 11 Mar 2018 11:52:39 -0700

The Jacksonville Jaguars are "heavily interested" in finding a veteran who can "push" QB Blake Bortles this offseason or take over for him if he "falls off a cliff," according to the Boston Globe's Ben Volin.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles signed a new three-year, $54 million contract that includes $26.5 million guaranteed last month and seems to have the front office's support, but the fact remains Jacksonville spent most of last season hoping he would just manage the game. The Jaguars would be wise to seek an upgrade to Chad Henne because it's not hard to imagine a scenario in which Bortles struggles for a stretch next season.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles in rare company

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 16:00:03 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has thrown for 90 career passing touchdowns and just under 15,000 passing yards. Former NFL QBs Peyton Manning, Dan Marino and Drew Bledsoe and Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford are the only quarterbacks in NFL history to achieve those numbers before turning 26 years old. Bortles turns 26 in April.

Fantasy Tip: It's a strange world we live in when we can mention Bortles' name positively in the same sentence as Peyton Manning and Dan Marino. And while technically Bortles is not a part of that list since he has not reached 15,000 yards yet, he's practically there. Coming off an unsung season and after just signing a big contract extension, Bortles is an underrated potential QB1.
