Jaguars | Blake Bortles shows no sign of injury

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 09:10:54 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (foot) completed only 13 passes for 115 yards in the win over the Tennessee Titans Thursday, Dec. 18, but he didn't show any signs of a mid-foot sprain that made him questionable for the game. Bortles was running bootlegs and scrambling all over the field against the Titans. "If I was able to play, I was going to go play like I know how, like I do," Bortles said. "I wasn't going to go out there if I couldn't run around and move and help the offense at all." He finished the game with 50 yards rushing on five carries.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles put up a gritty performance in the win, but his numbers go to show you why he shouldn't be relied on in any fantasy leagues just yet. Unless he has a setback with his foot, he should be fine to play in the season finale.

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.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles may miss Week 16

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 10:34:14 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (foot) is dealing with a mid-foot sprain and is expected to be questionable for the team's Week 16 game.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles does not have much time to recover since the team plays Thursday, Dec. 18. Chad Henne likely would start if Bortles is not able to play but should not be a starting option for owners.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (shoulder, ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: With a lack of explosive offensive weapons, Bortles ($3,800) has struggled to put up big fantasy numbers in his rookie season. Not much should change in Week 14 against the Houston Texans.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles undergoes MRI

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 10:38:14 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (shoulder, ankle) has been diagnosed with shoulder inflammation after undergoing an MRI on the shoulder, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Bortles also suffered an ankle injury during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles should be able to play in Week 14 despite the injury but could miss some practice time. Bortles has struggled with interceptions this season and has not thrown for less than 200 yards in each of his last two games. Bosrtles probably should not be a starting option for owners this week.

Jaguars | Jags expect more from Blake Bortles

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 10:21:30 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles went 15-for-27 for just 146 yards and an interception in the team's Week 12 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, and he hasn't tossed a touchdown in the last two games. Head coach Gus Bradley was critical of the whole offense, but he indicated that the team expects more from the rookie quarterback. Bradley said Bortles has been holding the ball too long in the pocket, and his decision making hasn't been up to par.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles has had more rough patches than bright spots in his rookie season, but you can't blame him too much, he's lacking serious weapons on offense. In Week 13, the Jags face the New York Giants, whose defense should allow Bortles to put up much better numbers. Consider Bortles ($4,300) a cheap sleeper option in Week 13.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles leads in pick-6 passes

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 01:43:32 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles, who had two passes intercepted and returned for touchdowns Sunday, Oct. 26 against the Miami Dolphins, leads the NFL with four interceptions returned for a TD.

Fantasy Tip: He's going to have his struggles, but Bortles will keep his job barring injury or an even worse downturn in his numbers. Still, there are likely better options out there on FantasyScore if you need a backup quarterback.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles was ready to start

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 11:18:38 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was ready to be the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Bortles was rusty in his first NFL start but provided signs of life in a previously dormant Jaguars' offense.

Fantasy Tip: Don't rely on Bortles to be your starting quarterback just yet. In fact, he should remain a low-end QB2 at best throughout the season. He just doesn't have the necessary supporting cast to be a weekly starter. Though, he may be able to provide a spot start or two.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles could stretch field

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 18:19:15 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed four passes of more than 20 yards after he relieved QB Chad Henne in the second half of the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: Even at the cheap price of $5,000 (10% of cap) at FantasyScore, Bortles is a very risky play in Week 4 against a solid San Diego defense. However, the speedy Allen Hurns could make an affordable upside pick if Bortles continues to take shots down the field. Hurns will take up 11.8% of the cap ($5,900) in Week 4.

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 03:06:21 -0700

Jaguars | Blake Bortles to start Week 4

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 14:42:33 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said Sunday, Sept. 21, that QB Blake Bortles will start in Week 4 against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles came on for the ineffective Chad Henne and completed 14 of his 24 passes for 223 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while also running twice for 30 yards. He might be worth a look in FantasyScore if the price is right, but as a rookie expect some mistakes, too.

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 11:45:55 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles entered the team's Week 3 game in the second half after QB Chad Henne was benched.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Bortles will keep the job or if Henne will get another start. Owners should monitor the situation during practice next week, but neither quarterback should be an option for most owners at this point.

Sat, 13 Sep 2014 05:21:32 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has a great attitude and is showing signs of improving in practice, according to head coach Gus Bradley. "I go back to that individual period that has been really helpful to him," Bradley said. "He just had another one today. I think those periods and going against the defense to see the different looks. The challenge is sometimes we're telling him where to look to go with the ball. Maybe he doesn't follow his progression but his footwork, his throws and things like that he's doing a nice job."

Jaguars | Blake Bortles to start

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 13:30:13 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will start the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a surprise with most starters resting. Chad Henne has already been named starter for the regular season opener, but Bortles could end up starting some games before all is said and done. Still, he's not worth a draft pick at this juncture.

Jaguars | Chad Henne to start in Week 1

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 22:00:13 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne will start the Week 1 game ahead of rookie QB Blake Bortles, head coach Gus Bradley said Friday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles has more fantasy upside, and the way he has played this preseason it's hard to believe that Bradley will not give the rookie a shot to start the opener. Henne is nothing more than a low-end QB2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles worked with the first-team offense for the first time during practice Monday, Aug. 18, taking three snaps in 11-on-11 drills.

Fantasy Tip: Bortles hasn't disappointed, but the Jaguars continue to bring him along slowly. Chad Henne should open the season as the starter, limiting Bortles' value to keeper leagues at this point.

Jaguars | Pleased with Blake Bortles' progress

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 15:04:29 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has impressed the team with his progress in training camp and the preseason so far, according to head coach Gus Bradley.

Fantasy Tip: Barring a catastrophic event or injury to Chad Henne, Bortles will enter Week 1 holding the clipboard on the sideline, and he's expected to sit the bench for most, if not all, of the season. It's nice to see Bortles play well early, but he shouldn't sniff any single-year rosters for fantasy football.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will get reps with the first-team in practice next week, as well as in the team's third preseason game Friday, Aug. 22.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles sharp in debut

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 19:29:43 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed seven of his 11 pass attempts for 117 yards in his team debut in the preseason opener Friday, Aug. 8, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bortles entered the game with the second team to a huge ovation.

Fantasy Tip: It was just one preseason game against a smattering of starters, backups and rookies, but Bortles certainly looked like the best quarterback on the field for either side. It is not clear if he will win the starting job in Week 1, but he clearly has a bright future. Fantasy owners will want him as a low-end QB2 if he can secure the starting gig.

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.
