Summary

Bortles played in all 16 games in 2016 but he was dealing with several minor injuries as he suffered a Grade 1 sprained right AC joint halfway through the season, and aggravated it five weeks later, and was also dealing with tendinitis in his right wrist. On May 1, 2017 the Jaguars picked up the fifth-year option on Bortles which will now guarantee him a $20 million salary in 2018. He has the support of the new executive vice president of football operations, Tom Coughlin who said "It makes sense for us going forward and it's good for Blake and for the Jaguars." Bortles has work to do this offseason and will have to prove it on the field in 2017, he has plenty of weapons around him with Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee in the receiving game and the pick 1st Round draft pick in Leonard Fournette who will try to balance out the offense with his dynamic running ability. Bortles offers a bonus to his fantasy production with his rushing ability which has allowed him to run for 669 yards and 5 touchdowns over the past two seasons. (May 22)

Jaguars | Blake Bortles struggles with turnovers (Wed Jun 21, 02:35 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has committed 63 turnovers over the last three seasons, which is the most in the NFL. His 51 interceptions during that span ranks second among quarterbacks.

Our View: In other news, water is wet. Bortles is known to get careless with the football and his turnover numbers have always been high. If he wants to play up to his potential then Bortles will have to cut down on the turnovers. We should see the Jaguars use more balanced attack (featuring rookie RB Leonard Fournette) to keep things simple for Bortles. With over 600 passing attempts last year, Bortles may have 100 fewer attempts in 2017.

Jaguars | Blake Bortles tired of 'below average' play (Thu Jun 15, 12:42 AM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said that the team is 'sick and tired of being below average' and 'not being successful when we feel as though we have the ability to be a good team.' He added: 'We haven't been. It's time to make a change. It's not going to happen overnight. You have to go do something about it.'

Our View: We feel you, Blake. We feel you. Bortles is kind of getting to the end of his chances and we are hoping a new coach represents a fresh start and an improvement for the fourth year quarterback. The Jaguars did pick up his fifth year option, but he still needs to get better to secure a long term job. There are enough weapons in the offense to think he can do that, but fantasy GMs are cool on him right now, as he is the 20th quarterback coming off the board in early drafts.
