Jaguars | Blake Bortles dominating in garbage time
Wed, 16 Aug 2017 21:57:52 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has the highest passer rating (111) in the NFL over the last two seasons during garbage time (defined as the last five minutes of the fourth quarter and the losing team is down nine or more points), having completed 78-of-118 passes for 964 yards, with 12 touchdowns versus only four interceptions. Additionally, since 2015, 20.7 percent of Bortles' touchdown passes have come in these instances, which is nearly four times the average for the rest of the league.

Experienced fantasy owners are probably already aware of Bortles' elite ability to pad his stats in meaningless situations, but it's even more glaring when you look at the actual numbers. Still, it shouldn't really tempt owners to draft the fourth-year pro as their starter, as Bortles was a huge letdown last season when many expected him to make a giant leap. He'll be entering a make-or-break campaign and hasn't really exhibited any encouraging signs this summer.
