Jaguars | OC happy with Blake Bortles

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 10:24:31 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles worked on his development and has progressed faster than originally anticipated, according to offensive coordinator Judd Fisch. "I think that one of the things you always worry about is how does a guy handle something that he's never done before. He's had OTAs and minicamp and then now he's got four weeks to figure out what is he going to do. I thought he really prepared so he came back ahead of where I thought he was going to be," Fisch said.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles' mechanics need fixing

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 08:11:40 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles' lower-body mechanics likely will be revised. Bortles' flaw has been over-reliance on his right arm when throwing; he doesn't use his legs enough. A "redshirt year will help," according to Albert Breer.

Fantasy Tip: With Chad Henne in line to take snaps in Week 1 and hold the job for an extended period when healthy, Bortles is a project that will need plenty to go right in order to produce for fantasy players in 2014. He's an attractive dynasty piece, though, because of his athleticism.

Although the Jacksonville Jaguars coaching staff is still high on QB Chad Henne, coach Gus Bradley said QB Blake Bortles could start a preseason game. "It would be late in the preseason if he did, and we'll see how things go," said Bradley. "We're really excited about Chad and what he's going to do so we'll see how it goes with him until that fourth preseason game."

Jaguars | Blake Bortles will be ready if needed

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 09:46:32 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said he will be ready if needed early in the season, even though the team plans on keeping him off the field in 2014. "I think you have to have the mindset that you have to go out and compete every day," Bortles said. "You want to be the guy. In my situation, whenever my number is called I want to be ready to go and execute the offense just like Chad would. That's my goal, to make sure I'm prepared and ready and continuing to get better."

Jaguars | Chad Henne will start

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 07:40:53 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne is the no-doubt starter, according to beat writer Ryan O'Halloran. O'Halloran predicts rookie QB Blake Bortles could be the starter by Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins. Another possibility is Week 12 after the bye week.

Fantasy Tip: Henne is a weak QB2 but could be a worthwhile matchup play at some point. Bortles has little value in single-season leagues right now.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles will receive first-team reps

Thu, 26 Jun 2014 10:05:11 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will receive first-team repetitions in training camp to experience "that type of environment," according to Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley.

Fantasy Tip: QB Chad Henne is expected to be the opening-day starter, and Bortles won't see meaningful game action, if all things go as planned. Avoid the rookie in single-year formats.
