News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 26): Minshew had a good enough fantasy result again, and failed to hook up with his receivers so often that the door opened a little more to his benching. If not after the Week 8 bye, it feels inevitable that the Jaguars will see what they have in sixth-round pick Jake Luton. Minshew isn't essential to carry through the bye.
General News (Thu Oct 29): has multiple fractures and a strained ligament in his right thumb, according to sources. He has had discomfort since Oct. 11, and the team didn't know about the injury.
Week 8: bye week
FBG says: matchup.

Latest NewsJaguars | Gardner Minshew has injured thumb (Thu Oct 29, 11:48 AM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew (thumb) has multiple fractures and a strained ligament in his right thumb, according to sources. Our View: He has had discomfort since Oct. 11, and the team didn't know about the injury. Get ready for the Jaguars to make a quarterback change. They have a bye in Week 8 and when they return to action we could see Mike Glennon as the starter. The Jaguars also have sixth-round rookie Jake Luton they could take a look at since the season is lost (again) anyway.

He also ran for 21 yards on four carries. link to story Jaguars | Gardner Minshew in danger of being benched (Sun Oct 25, 08:12 AM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew is in danger of being benched in favor of QB Mike Glennon if he continues to struggle, according to multiple sources. A move could be made as soon as Week 7's game versus the Los Angeles Chargers. Our View: DJ Chark explaining that the Jaguars receivers were open when asked how the Lions shut him down last week was the telltale sign that things were not well with Minshew. Mike Glennon would probably come in today if necessary, but the team could switch to Jake Luton after the bye.
link to story Jaguars | Gardner Minshew rather mediocre in loss (Sun Oct 18, 05:46 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew completed 25-of-44 passes for 243 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions and he ran for 14 yards and a score. Our View: Minshew had a fine fantasy result because of garbage time, but his receivers seemed frustrated him missing them downfield and his play is deteriorating. With the season slipping away it's fair to wonder if we will see Jake Luton at some point this year unless Minshew improves. He'll be a boom/bust streamer/superflex against the Chargers next week.
