Jaguars | GM confident in Blake Bortles

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 13:16:50 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles still has a vote of confidence from general manager David Caldwell despite two rough seasons to start his young career. "I think we can win a lot of games with Blake; I think we can win a Super Bowl with Blake," Caldwell said. "I think he needs to improve and I think we need to improve around him, too, in order for that to happen. I think the future is bright for him."

Fantasy Tip: Whether or not Caldwell said these things with a straight face is unbeknownst to many, but good for him if he did. Bortles is mechanically flawed and has thrown 34 interceptions in his first two years. Despite that, he has finished comfortably in QB1 territory, largely thanks to garbage time in Jaguars' losses. View him as a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 next season.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles still the QB

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 07:32:32 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was endorsed as the team's quarterback Thursday, Jan. 12, by executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles' numbers weren't too far off from 2015 this season except he threw 12 fewer touchdowns. Entering his fourth season, he'll be in a make-or-break situation as a low-end QB1 or a high-end QB2 in fantasy.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles unsure about option

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 10:06:39 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said he has no idea if the team will pick up the fifth-year option in his contract.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles had a disappoint 2016 season but did play better in the last two games of the season, so the Jaguars may pick up the option. Bortles should be the starting quarterback for the Jaguars next season and should be seen as a No. 2 quarterback in deeper fantasy leagues.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles back to basics

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 06:59:53 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will spend this offseason working on his mechanics. He said he'll spend about 10 weeks working on his footwork, which he said was his biggest mechanical flaw. His windup and release will improve along with it, Bortles said. Bortles said part of his issue was that he was trying to be a stand-still passer, which has nothing to do with leaving the pocket, and that's just not something with which he's comfortable.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles was expected to take a leap forward in his third year, but it ended up being a bunny hop backwards. He's just going to be 25 next season, and there is still room to grow to reach his ceiling. He'll be a low-end QB1 possibility or a great QB2 flyer next season.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles salvages season

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 15:21:03 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles managed to pass for 3,905 yards and 23 touchdowns in an otherwise unimpressive season. He also ran for 359 yards and three touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: The rushing numbers really aided Bortles' fantasy outlook. In one of the least impressive seasons in recent memory, Bortles thrived in garbage time throughout the season and played his way into QB1 territory. This is just another reminder that you don't have to be a good real-life quarterback to be a good fantasy quarterback.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles had two separations

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 12:03:22 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (shoulders, wrist) toiled through two shoulder separations and tendinitis in his wrist last season.

Fantasy Tip: The injuries are convenient excuses for Bortles, but he was flat out bad in 2016, injuries or no injuries. His play is extremely erratic and his throwing technique is unorthodox. Even with a solid 2015 season, the 2016 season was enough to put him in backup fantasy quarterback territory.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles ends mediocre season

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 17:35:15 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed 25 of his 39 pass attempts for 301 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 17 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He also rushed three times for 21 yards and lost a pair of fumbles.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles took a big step backwards in 2016. While his 3,905 passing yards wasn't horrible, it was more than 500 off from his breakout season of 2015. He also threw 12 fewer touchdowns (23) than he did lSAt season, while losing a career high three fumbles and throwing 16 interceptions. He will be slotted more as a QB2 heading into 2017 in most fantasy leagues.
