Huddle Up: Bortles increased his passing yards from Week 1 to Week 2 but threw two interceptions in the last game. He will be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense in Week 3 and should be avoided in all leagues.
Posted: 9/20/2017 12:43pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles is a risky start even in a good matchup, but he's up against one of the best defenses in the NFL so far this year in the Baltimore Ravens. Baltimore has already picked off eight passes and recovered two fumbles in two games. Stay away from Bortles.
Posted: 9/17/2017 5:26pm ET
Huddle Up: It was a disappointing game for the Jaguars after their promising Week 1 road win. Bortles failed to throw for 300 yards against the Titans for the first time in four games, too. He'll look to rebound in Week 3, but he faces a tough matchup against the stout Ravens defense in London.
Posted: 9/14/2017 1:11pm ET
Huddle Up: The loss of Allen Robinson is a big hit to Bortles' fantasy value. The inconsistent gunslinger didn't have a lot of value anyway. Bortles is merely a desperation start moving forward.
Posted: 9/13/2017 2:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles appears to be on track to face the Titans. He threw for 662 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions in two games against the Titans in 2016, but he is still nothing more than a QB2 in most fantasy leagues after losing Allen Robinson to a season-ending injury in Week 1. See what kind of rapport he develops with Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee and company first before delving into the Bortles business again. For now, expect a heavy dose of rookie Leonard Fournette with limited passing.
Posted: 9/8/2017 1:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles is no better than a desperation play for owners without Andrew Luck and/or Jameis Winston this week. He generated a respectable 22.4 fantasy points in Week 10 versus Houston last year, but their Week 15 meeting resulted in an inglorious 10.1-point day.
Posted: 9/7/2017 1:47pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has taken a long tumble down the fantasy football cliff after a breaking out season in 2015. He nearly lost his starting job this offseason and is likely on a short leash heading into 2017. Unless you're desperate and have Andrew Luck and/or Jameis Winston, don't start Bortles.
Posted: 9/6/2017 3:15pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles is on track to start in Week 1 against the Texans. He total 357 passing yards with two touchdowns, two interceptions and a rushing score in two appearances against Houston last season. After receiving consideration as a QB1 in 2016, he appears to be more of a QB2 in most leagues in 2017.
Posted: 8/26/2017 6:54am ET
Huddle Up: Although Bortles went 12-for-16 for 125 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Aug. 24, he had struggled mightily for most of training camp and the preseason, which is why QB Chad Henne was given serious consideration for the starting job in the first place. Despite the fact that Jacksonville has several decent offensive weapons, Bortles should not be viewed as a great option in any fantasy format.
Posted: 8/16/2017 9:57pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 8/15/2017 11:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Expectations are down dramatically for Bortles this year, and there's a presumption the team will lean on its ground game, diminishing Bortles' role in the process. He has some weapons, but Bortles currently rates as a shaky fantasy backup.
Posted: 8/10/2017 6:55pm ET
Huddle Up: A very uneventful beginning to the preseason for Bortles, though that is expected of just about all starters in the first preseason contest. Owners that are interested in giving the former No. 3 overall draft pick another shot this season after his disastrous showing a year ago will have to keep waiting to see what progress -- if any -- Bortles has made since a terrible 2016 campaign.
Posted: 7/29/2017 8:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has been the fantasy king of garbage time the last couple of seasons, padding his stats late in games with Jacksonville trailing. He has also been a turnover machine and should be viewed as a QB2 this season.
Posted: 6/21/2017 11:35am ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has thrown at least 16 interceptions in all three seasons since joining the NFL but has also thrown 58 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Bortles is a risky option for owners because of his turnovers and probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 6/14/2017 9:42pm ET
Huddle Up: The Jaguars, especially Bortles, had a lot of promise going into last season, only to end up falling far, far below expectations. The 2014 No. 3 overall draft pick will be entering the most important season of his career, as another disappointing campaign would most likely end his tenure as the starter in Jacksonville. He may become a reliable option again in fantasy down the line, but out of the gate, Bortles won't be a recommended starter for owners in most leagues.
Posted: 5/13/2017 10:37am ET
Huddle Up: As always, major improvement in correcting a fundamental is only good if it sticks when a quarterback is facing a live pass rush, so owners need to play the wait-and-see game at least until preseason action gets underway. Bortles spent his offseason working with quarterback guru Adam Dedeaux, and it should be noted he worked hard on his mechanics prior to his breakout 2015 season, so there is reason for hope. Bortles is a high-upside QB2 who should be available late in drafts.
Posted: 5/1/2017 8:24am ET
Huddle Up: Bortles regressed in his third year with 3,905 passing yards, 23 touchdowns and 16 INTs, but he's still just 25 years old. He'll be a low-end QB1 or a high-end QB2 option in fantasy.
Posted: 4/23/2017 4:13pm ET
Huddle Up: The Jaguars have a few more weeks to decide on Bortles' option, but he will have to play better if he wants a long-term deal from the Jaguars. He has thrown 69 touchdowns and 51 interceptions in his three years in the NFL and should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues in 2017.
Posted: 4/16/2017 9:59am ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has spent the offseason with quarterback guru Adam Dedeaux in California and is still waiting for the team to decide whether or not it will pick up his $18 million option for 2018 by the league deadline on May 3. Talent is not a question with Bortles, so a bounce-back season could be in order if he doesn't abandon his mechanics and the line plays better. He's a high-upside QB2 option for now.
Posted: 3/26/2017 10:05am ET
Huddle Up: The Jaguars could easily select a quarterback on either one of the first two days of the draft in order to put some pressure on Bortles, but it seems more likely they will go all-in with him one more time and try to shore up some other weaknesses instead. Bortles, who is spending his offseason working on mechanics, is very much facing a pivotal year and should be considered little more than a high-upside QB2 in fantasy drafts this summer.
Posted: 3/20/2017 11:09pm ET
Huddle Up: It's no secret that Bortles was arguably one of the most disappointing players in all of fantasy football this past season, but the hope is he can return to his 2015 form by working with quarterback gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux. He has a solid supporting cast around him on offense to pull it off, but owners should probably wait for him to show signs of life early on in the campaign before giving him a shot again.
Posted: 3/4/2017 3:47pm ET
Huddle Up: Khan doesn't have much choice. Bortles' mechanics regressed in a big way last season, which contributed greatly to his demise. To that end, he has spent most of the offseason in California training with throwing guru Tom House, like he did in the 2015 offseason. It may be too much to ask for a return to his breakthrough 2015 campaign, but Jacksonville has enough weapons to help Bortles improve if he can become more efficient with his throwing motion.
Posted: 2/24/2017 10:26am ET
Huddle Up: It should be noted Coughlin did not indicate the Jaguars would be moving on from Bortles either. Chad Henne and Brandon Allen are the only other quarterbacks on the roster, so any realistic challenger is going to have to come via free agency or the draft. Bortles is the odds-on favorite to remain the starter in Jacksonville, but he is firmly in QB2 territory in fantasy.
Posted: 1/26/2017 1:16pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 1/12/2017 7:32am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 1/7/2017 10:06am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 1/5/2017 6:59am ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 1/4/2017 3:21pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 1/2/2017 12:03pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 1/1/2017 5:35pm ET
Huddle Up: 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.
Posted: 12/24/2016 2:14pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles had been struggling lately, so this game was nice for fantasy owners who actually stuck with him. He has been dealing with a nagging shoulder injury, too, but that didn't appear to be an issue in this one.
Posted: 12/23/2016 7:37am ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has taken a step back this year, but in his defense, the team has been plagued with injuries at the skill positions. Bortles is a matchup play with a decent one against the Tennessee Titans this week.
Posted: 12/22/2016 1:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has been one of the biggest failures in football this year, both in real life and in the fantasy realm. He's given fantasy owners week after week of disappointment, but he has a chance to redeem himself this week versus a vulnerable Tennessee Titans secondary. Even so, Bortles is in backup fantasy quarterback territory.
Posted: 12/18/2016 3:54pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles took a giant step backwards after a promising season in 2015. He entered the season as a low-end QB1, but is limping to the finish line as a QB2 in most fantasy formats.
Posted: 12/11/2016 9:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has been dealing with a nagging shoulder injury lately, and he has faced some very tough defenses lately, too. He has resembled more of a QB2 recently in fantasy.
Posted: 12/4/2016 1:39pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles saw 23 of his 42 passes fall incomplete and finished with 181 yards. If you are using Bortles as a QB1 in your fantasy leagues, chances are you are out of playoff contention. He's best used as a QB2 or lower. This week's game was against a top defense.
Posted: 12/1/2016 5:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles' big games have been few and far between this season, and he should be left on the bench in Week 13 against a stingy Denver secondary.
Posted: 11/27/2016 6:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles entered the week dealing with a right shoulder issue, and perhaps that was the reason he was a bit inaccurate and had an inability to throw it down the field. Still, he helped fantasy owners with two TD strikes and the rushing yardage.
Posted: 11/24/2016 6:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles will likely play through the injury, but he has been a risky option all year. He is a low-end starter in deep leagues only against Buffalo in Week 12.
Posted: 11/21/2016 11:41am ET
Huddle Up: Bortles played all but one snap Sunday. As has become his trademark, he turned in another decent day in fantasy but played a below-average game in reality. Garbage-time production has saved Bortles a number of times this season and made him a passable QB2 when his actual play should be getting him benched on a regular basis. With the bye-week crunch mostly over, owners should be able to move on from him.
Posted: 11/20/2016 5:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has tossed at least two touchdowns in each of his past four games, and he has at least one TD in each of his 10 starts this season. He remains a solid low-end QB1 in all fantasy formats heading into Week 12 against the Buffalo Bills
Posted: 11/14/2016 11:11am ET
Huddle Up: At this point, it would be more than fair to say both men are playing for their jobs to some degree. Bortles continues to post very useful fantasy totals on the strength of garbage-time stats and extreme volume despite playing dreadful football in reality. The third-year pro should remain in the low-end QB1 conversation in Week 11, as he'll face one of the softest pass defenses in the league in the Detroit Lions.
Posted: 11/13/2016 2:59pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles tends to offer decent fantasy stats in garbage time but will cost you points with his penchant for turnovers. The Jaguars travel to the Detroit Lions in Week 11 for what is a statistically sound matchup to exploit.
Posted: 11/6/2016 2:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has thrown for at least two touchdowns in five of his eight starts but has also struggled with interceptions this season. He is scheduled to face the Houston Texans in Week 10 and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback for owners.
Posted: 11/5/2016 7:07pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has regressed after tossing 35 touchdowns last season, and he should be viewed as a QB2 in Week 9 against Kansas City's opportunistic secondary.
Posted: 10/27/2016 9:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles padded his stats after the game was out of reach, but his fantasy owners won't complain. Garbage time points still count, and Jacksonville's suspect defense should have Bortles throwing early and often all year.
Posted: 10/24/2016 7:06pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles entered the season as a Top 10 fantasy option at his position, but so far he has taken a step back after a breakout 2015 and is well on pace for lower touchdown passes and slightly fewer yards. He is more of a high-end QB2 and bye-week replacement at this point until he turns things around.
Posted: 10/23/2016 8:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles threw for 4,428 yards with 35 touchdowns in 16 games last season, but slightly off that yardage pace this season, and well off the mark in terms of touchdowns. He should still be treated as a low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, but adding depth at the position isn't a bad idea at this point.
Posted: 10/16/2016 2:32pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has thrown eight touchdowns in the first five games of the season but he has also thrown seven interceptions in that span. He does have weapons to work with in the passing game and could be a decent starting option next week against the Oakland Raiders.
Posted: 10/2/2016 10:33am ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has thrown two touchdowns in each of the last three games and went without an interception for the first time this season. Bortles has the weapons to work with on offense and can be a starting fantasy quarterback against certain matchups.
