Gardner Minshew Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The Jaguars have traded QB Gardner Minshew to the Eagles for a conditional 2022 sixth-round draft pick. Philly also released QB Nick Mullens, positioning Minshew as at least the 3rd QB on the depth chart. He'll need only to work past Joe Flacco to become Jalen Hurts' backup. That's a nice spot for the 25-year-old Minshew, whose rookie contract runs through 2022. Jacksonville, meanwhile, has C.J. Beathard and Jake Luton around as backups to Trevor Lawrence.

The Jaguars started rookie QB Trevor Lawrence in the preseason opener and plan to do so again Monday against the Saints, but OC Darrell Bevell says that doesn't mean they've decided on their regular-season starter. “We’re still going to handle it that way until we end up making the final decision,” Bevell said, via the Florida Times-Union. “Right now, they are still status quo. We’re trying to make everybody better. We want competition at each and every position. Both guys are getting better because of it.” It's still hard to imagine Jacksonville actually going with Minshew in the regular-season opener. But we have to consider it a possibility. We'll all be watching this situation over the next few weeks.

Jaguars QB Mike Glennon will start Sunday's game against the Bears. Now in control of the #1 pick of this spring's draft, Jacksonville just might be trying to lose out. Glennon isn't a fantasy option and is a downgrade for the rest of the offense.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone announced Monday at his press conference that he'll start QB Gardner Minshew against the Ravens in Week 15. Minshew relieved Mike Glennon in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Titans but posted only pedestrian numbers. He completed 18 of 31 passes (58%) for 178 yards (5.7 per attempt), 1 TD and 0 INTs. Baltimore actually rates as only a slightly tougher-than-average scoring matchup for fantasy QBs on the season -- both by raw fantasy points allowed and our Strength-of-Schedule formula -- but we're certainly not chasing Minshew for Week 15 fantasy lineups. The Ravens will bring a tougher defense than the Titans did last week, especially in the 2nd half of a blowout Tennessee win.

The Jaguars benched QB Mike Glennon in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Titans. He went 13 of 23 for 85 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. QB Gardner Minshew has entered for Jacksonville.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) is out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. 6th-round rookie QB Jake Luton is expected to get the start but is well off the fantasy radar.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone confirmed on Monday that QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) is out for Sunday's game against the Texans. Marrone also said that QB Jake Luton will take most of the starter reps in practice this week. That obviously makes him the favorite to start over QB Mike Glennon. Luton is a 6th-round rookie out Oregon State who posted a mediocre 62% completion rate and 7.6 yards per attempt in his lone full season as starter last year. Luton did at least toss 28 TDs vs. 3 INTs. He doesn't bring any rushing upside, though, and won't be a Week 9 fantasy option.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) is not expected to play against the Texans next Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Veteran Mike Glennon and rookie Jake Luton will reportedly compete for the Week 9 starting job in practice. Neither guy will be a bankable fantasy play, despite the plus matchup. It's unclear if Jacksonville will go back to Minshew once he's healthy.

X-rays this week revealed that Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew has multiple fractures and a strained ligament in his right (throwing) thumb, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Minshew has reportedly been experiencing discomfort in that thumb since the Texans game back in Week 5. That at least partially explains his uneven play over the last 3 games. Minshew has a Week 8 bye, but it's unclear if he'll be able to play come Week 9. If not, Jacksonville would turn to either veteran Mike Glennon or 6th-round rookie Jake Luton.

Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew could be benched as early as today's game against the Chargers if he continues to struggle, NFL Network reports. Minshew has completed 67.5% of his passes and tossed 11 TDs through 6 games. But he's also been picked off 5 times in his last 5 -- and the Jags have lost all 5 of those games. We'll see if Minshew can save his job today, but he's obviously a risky fantasy play. QB Mike Glennon is Jacksonville's backup.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and was reportedly a game-time decision, so Chark obviously won’t be at 100% today. That leaves him as a risk/reward WR3 vs. Detroit’s 24th-ranked WR defense. Chark's presence is good news for QB Gardner Minshew.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ankle) is "likely" to play against the Lions today. A final decision won't be made until Chark goes through pregame warmups. We'll get his official status by noon ET. If active, he'll be a risk/reward WR3 at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

A member of Jacksonville's practice squad tested positive for COVID on Friday night, the team announced. The Jaguars are still planning on playing vs. the Lions on Sunday, but the situation obviously bears monitoring over the next 24 hours.
