Huddle Up: Bortles struggled against a rather middling Browns pass defense, and the Jaguars managed just one offensive touchdown in the 19-7 road win. He'll look to get back on track in Week 12 on the road against the Cardinals.
Posted: 11/17/2017 2:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has been battling a nagging right wrist injury for the whole season, and he was under the weather this week, too. Still, he'll be ready for the Browns, a team ranking 17th against the pass with 230.6 yards per game, 19 touchdowns and 29 pass plays of 20 or more yards allowed through nine games.

Huddle Up: Bortles has been playing better over the last few weeks and should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues this week.

Huddle Up: Bortles has been on the injury report for most of the season with a right wrist issue, but he has yet to miss any game time.
Posted: 11/10/2017 12:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has been playing better lately but still has only one game this season with at least two touchdown passes. He has thrown for at least 240 yards in each of the last three games. Bortles probably can be avoided in most leagues but could be a bye-week replacement in deeper leagues.
Posted: 11/9/2017 4:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has played well over the last few weeks with three touchdowns in the last three weeks and at least 250 yards in each of the last two games. He could be a bye-week replacement in deeper leagues.

Huddle Up: Bortles has actually been playing well this year, which is unfortunate for the injured Allen Robinson. Anyway, even with the improvements in numbers so far this year Bortles has not consistently produced well enough to warrant starter consideration. Keep him on the bench unless you're desperate.
Posted: 11/5/2017 2:51pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has been playing better over the last few weeks with three touchdowns and one interception over the last three games. He will be facing the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 10 and probably should be avoided in most leagues.
Posted: 11/3/2017 2:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles is good to go. He'll be facing a tough Bengals pass defense that ranks No. 4 in the NFL, giving up just 183.1 yards per game with nine touchdowns through seven outings. The Bengals have been dinged for six pass plays of 40 or more yards, so there is opportunity for a big play or two.
Posted: 11/2/2017 12:20pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has been good enough for the Jaguars so far this season, but he doesn't do enough to be considered a fantasy QB1. He's averaging less than 200 passing yards per game this year and is up against one of the best pass defenses in the NFL in the Cincinnati Bengals. Keep him benched.
Posted: 11/1/2017 1:24pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has flown under the radar this season, which is good. He's not being called on to win games, but he is doing his part to limit mistakes and keep the Jaguars in games. Jacksonville is focused on Leonard Fournette and the rushing game and their defense to grind out victories. Bortles, despite playing well overall, is still a fantasy afterthought.
Posted: 10/22/2017 3:49pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles was busier with dynamic rookie Leonard Fournette inactive due to injury. It was the first 300-yard game for Bortles this season, but he has had one or no touchdown passes in six of his first seven games. The Jaguars are off in Week 8.
Posted: 10/20/2017 2:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has been inconsistent this season but is coming off a decent performance in Week 6. The team probably will run the ball most of the time this week, so owners can avoid Bortles in all leagues.
Posted: 10/19/2017 2:56pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles is coming off a decent Week 6 performance but has only thrown for 1,068 yards so far this season. Owners should be able to find better options to used and can avoid Bortles.
Posted: 10/18/2017 12:46pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has avoided making an inordinate amount of crucial errors so far this season, but his production is a far cry from what his 2015 campaign gleaned. Keep him on your bench unless he's the last option you have.
Posted: 10/15/2017 8:40pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has just one multi-touchdown game through six outings, his four-touchdown outburst in England back in Week 3 against the Ravens. Treat him as a QB2 heading into Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Posted: 10/13/2017 3:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles should be in line for a pretty successful day against a Rams defense which has allowed 24.2 points per game while yielding 208.8 yards per outing through the air with 15 pass plays of 20 or more yards.
Posted: 10/12/2017 12:19pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has thrown for only 235 yards over the last two weeks but does have seven touchdowns passes in five games. He does not have a lot of fantasy value at this point and can be avoided in all leagues.
Posted: 10/11/2017 3:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has been listed on the injury report for the last several weeks but is in no danger of missing the game. He has thrown for 140 yards or less in three of the five games this season and should be avoided in all leagues.
Posted: 10/8/2017 1:59pm ET
Huddle Up: The Jaguars used a run-heavy offense, rushing 37 times for 231 yards and two touchdowns, so the passing game wasn't needed. That's not good news for fantasy owners. He'll look for better results against a less than stellar Rams defense in Week 6, but Bortles is no more than a WR2 at this point.
Posted: 10/6/2017 1:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles followed up his terrific Week 3 performance with only 140 yards last week. Owners should be able to find better quarterbacks to start and can avoid Bortles in all leagues.
Posted: 10/5/2017 4:23pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles is coming off a rough outing last week versus the Jets, and it doesn't figure to get any easier with a road matchup on tap in Pittsburgh. Plus, he may also be without one of his top wideouts in Marqise Lee (ribs). On the contrary, there's a good chance the Steelers win this game decisively, which would lead to Bortles putting up some stellar numbers in garbage time -- as he typically does -- but either way, it's a risky proposition for fantasy owners given his wrist issue.
Posted: 10/4/2017 4:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles was held to only 140 yards in Week 4 after he threw for four touchdowns in Week 3. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers defense and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 10/1/2017 2:03pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles was coming off a fantastic Week 3 performance but did not do a lot against the Jets. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers defense in Week 5 and can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 9/29/2017 6:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles is coming off a four-touchdown game, and he is a viable streaming option against the New York Jets in Week 4.
Posted: 9/28/2017 12:36pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles had a coming out party last week against a tough defense, but don't let that one performance lead to undeserved trust. Bortles is a QB2 until he can produce consistent numbers.
Posted: 9/27/2017 2:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles has been bothered by a right wrist issue but it hasn't kept him from playing in any games. He'll be fine for Week 4 against the New York Jets on the road and he could be quite a sleeper with the favorable matchup.
Posted: 9/24/2017 9:26am ET
Huddle Up: Bortles played very well against a tough Baltimore Ravens defense and spread the ball to many different receivers. He should not be considered a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues since he has struggled at times, but he could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues next week against the New York Jets.
Posted: 9/22/2017 12:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Bortles is still not posting great numbers over the first two games of the season and lost his No. 1 receiver to a major injury. Owners in all leagues should avoid Bortles most weeks.
Posted: 9/21/2017 2:48pm ET
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.
