QB Blake Bortles has inked a 1-year deal with the Rams. After an up-but-mostly-down 5 seasons in Jacksonville, he'll spend at least 1 year backing up Jared Goff in Los Angeles. Perhaps spending some time under offensive whiz kid Sean McVay will be good for Bortles. He'll obviously hold no 2019 fantasy value barring a Goff injury.

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will start Sunday's finale against the Texans, HC Doug Marrone announced. QB Cody Kessler was timid and mostly ineffective in his 4 starts, completing 63% of his passes but averaging 5.5 yards per attempt and totaling just 1 TD. At least Bortles will take some shots. He's in play as a QB2 and cheap DFS tournament dart -- and also gives the Texans defense more upside.

The Jaguars benched QB Cody Kessler for QB Blake Bortles in the 2nd half of Sunday's game in Miami. Kessler completed 12 of 17 passes for just 106 yards and "led" his team to 7 points. We'll see who Jacksonville goes with in the finale, but it's irrelevant for fantasy football purposes.

The Jags have fired OC Nathaniel Hackett and benched QB Blake Bortles. Jacksonville sits 22nd in total yards per game; 28th in points per game. Hackett’s replacement is QB coach Scott Milanovich, whose background stems from the CFL and NFL Europe. Cody Kessler takes over at QB and figures to reduce the Jags’ turnover rate. He owns just 4 picks on 248 career attempts. Of course, it’ll be tough to trust any skill player not named Leonard Fournette down the stretch. Even then, Fournette will have to overcome the loss of top OL Andrew Norwell (ankle) to injured reserve.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone announced Monday that QB Blake Bortles will start this weekend's game against the Eagles in London. Bortles was yanked in the 3rd quarter of yesterday's game against the Texans after losing a pair of fumbles. That (surprisingly) was the 1st time he'd ever been benched in-game. He figures to be on a short leash again on Sunday and can't be trusted in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Injury Predictor

In 3 pro seasons, Bortles has yet to miss a game due to injury. However, he said after the 2016 season that he suffered a sprained right AC joint on October 27 and aggravated it on November 20. He also admitted to playing through right wrist tendinitis. At 25 years old, Bortles enters a make-or-break campaign.
