Gardner Minshew, QB, Jaguars
Blind-bid recommendation: 4-8%
The rookie bounced back from a couple of rough outings to rack up 279 yards and 3 scores in Sunday's win over the Jets. Minshew added 28 yards on the ground and is now averaging 27.9 rushing yards across 7 starts.
He’ll be a Week 9 spot-start option in a plus matchup against the Texans, who have allowed 4 straight opponents to top 270 passing yards and throw 3+ TD passes. Things got even worse for Houston on Sunday, when DE J.J. Watt suffered a season-ending pectoral tear.
A Week 10 bye and then iffy road matchups at Indy and Tennessee limit Minshew's value.
