Jaguars HC Doug Marrone said of his team's starting QB spot after Thursday night's preseason game, "It's right up there for grabs, and either person can take it." That would mean Chad Henne could take the job away from Blake Bortles with better performances the rest of this month. Whether that's true or Marrone was trying to light a fire under Bortles, it's a bad look for the former #3 overall pick heading into his 4th pro season. Bortles is already going very late in fantasy football drafts, though. So this proclamation doesn't change much. Consider it a tie-breaker between Bortles and whatever other backup QB you're considering near the end of your draft.
The Packers signed QB Blake Bortles. The 29-year-old has attempted just 2 passes over the last 2 years after 5 mostly disappointing seasons in Jacksonville. The real takeaway here, of course, is that Green Bay might be preparing to be without disgruntled QB Aaron Rodgers. We'll continue to monitor the situation.
The Broncos have signed QB Blake Bortles. QB Jeff Driskel will get the 1st crack at replacing the injured Drew Lock -- but Bortles could hit the field if Driskel struggles. Both Bortles and Driskel bring enough rushing upside to be QB2 considerations in fantasy.
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.
