Overvalued Players: Quarterbacks

Footballguys staff members discuss quarterbacks who are overvalued

The flip side of succeeding with value players is failing with overvalued players. These are players that will not put up stats commensurate to their draft spot, and avoiding them is another of the important keys to a successful fantasy team. In an attempt to point out these players, we asked our staff to look through the top 150 players and identify players that should underperform their draft position.

Blake Bortles, Jacksonville

Bloom: There's no doubt that Blake Bortles 2015 was impressive, but it wasn't quite as impressive as the numbers make it seem, as the Jaguars played poorly enough to put him in catchup situations more often than a typical passer. The Jaguars don't want games in his hands and have brought in Chris Ivory as a power back in addition to bolstering the defense. Bortles has a terrific set of weapons and could still grow as a passer, but if the Jaguars grow as a team, he won't be worth a pick in the top 12 quarterbacks or finish as a QB1.

Fahey: Blake Bortles threw 27 redzone touchdowns last year. He threw more touchdowns in the redzone than T.J. Yeldon had carries. The Jaguars didn't trust Yeldon or their running game in 2015 so they signed Chris Ivory. Ivory carried the ball 18 times within five yards of the endzone last year. He won't be the feature back in Jacksonville, so he will be fresh to take away a huge chunk of Bortles' production.
