Summary

Blake Bortles improved on his completion percentage in 2017 to 60.2 percent and led the Jaguars to the AFC Championship game. The team continues to show trust in Bortles up and down five year career and it paid off last season with the playoff run. Bortles has not missed a game over the past 3 seasons and has finished as the 4th, 9th and 13th best fantasy quarterback over that span. The interceptions have always been the problem for Bortles and last year he also cut that number down to 13 which was down from 16 the previous year. Bortles can give you points with his arm but he also continues to run the ball effectively and has never had under 52 rushing attempts on a season. It is becoming more rare to find a quarterback that can give you a rushing bonus and that is often over looked with Bortles. Over his career he averages 3.6 rushing attempts a game for 22.7 yards and 11 percent chance at a rushing touchdown. Although his passing touchdowns have been in the low 20's over the past two seasons he somewhat makes up for it with his rushing stats. (May 22)

Jaguars | More big plays from Blake Bortles? (Wed Jul 4, 07:33 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has earned the trust of offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, and Hackett said Bortles' improved decision making will allow him to be 'a lot more aggressive' with his play calling.

Our View: What Hackett is saying, but we're not sure who Bortles is throwing to. At this point we don't recommend him as more than a low-end QB2.
