2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Jaguars were one of seven teams to throw the ball over 600 times last year but Bortles' fantasy production didn't produce the same results as his epic 2015 campaign. The lack of production on offense led to a decrease of 3.6 points per game from 2015 to 2016 and the eventual firing of Gus Bradley before the conclusion of the regular season. As a result, HC Doug Marrone and OC Nathaniel Hackett will bring a hybrid Air Coryell system to Florida. Marrone is better known for making running backs into quality fantasy starters but Bortles is better than previous signal callers working in this scheme. The good news for those hoping Bortles flourishes under Marrone is that the offense has enough weapons to make Bortles a top-five fantasy QB. The bad news is most of the offense hasn't played in this scheme and they are highly motivated to run the ball this year. A more effective running game led by rookie Leonard Fournette will help Bortles, but it may cut into his passing attempts. Fewer attempts for a quarterback that has yet to attain a completion percentage of 60-percent makes it tougher to predict a career year and more likely that his numbers suffer slightly. Keep expectations for Bortles more in line with a fringe fantasy starter that will likelybe better as the season progresses.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jaguars reeling after loss of Allen Robinson
Coach expects other WRs to step up
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 12, 10:35 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
Losing former Pro Bowl wide receiver Allen Robinson to a torn ACL was tough for Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone. While the Jaguars have plenty of depth, Robinson is easily the most complete receiver on the roster. Now the Jaguars will have to rely on speedster Marqise Lee and possession receiver Allen Hurns moving forward. "Well, obviously we have confidence in Marqise and Allen to step up," Marrone said. (First Coast News)

FFToday's Take: Both Lee and Hurns make solid waiver wire pickups this week, though we're wary of placing too much faith in Jacksonville QB Blake Bortles. Temper your expectations, and don;t expect anything more than inconsistent WR3 numbers out of either, as this offense appears to be running through rookie RB Leonard Fournette.


Jaguars name Blake Bortles starter for Week 1
Chad Henne returns to backup role

FFToday's Take: After being demoted for the all important third pre-season game, the Jags have elected to go with the uninspiring Bortles over the mediocre Chad Henne at quarterback for Week 1. Perhaps the mini-benching will light a flame under Bortles who has looked awful this pre-season. Bortles is back to being draftable in 2-QBs leagues but its a situation fantasy owners will want to avoid.


Jaguars bench Bortles, Henne to start
Turnovers could spell the end of Bortles' time in Jacksonville
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 23, 7:20 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Chad Henne will start Jacksonville's preseason game against Carolina, a change that could signal the end of Blake Bortles' career with the Jaguars. Coach Doug Marrone made the announcement Wednesday, a day before the exhibition and nearly a week after he created a quarterback competition in Jacksonville for the first time since 2013. Marrone said both quarterbacks will get time with the first-team offense. Henne, a 10-year veteran whose last start came in 2014, outperformed Bortles during training camp and through two preseason games. If Henne plays well against the Panthers, he likely will start the Sept. 10 season opener at Houston. (AP)

FFToday's Take: Jacksonville will lean on an improved offensive line and the trio of Leonard Fournette, Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon to carry the offense while setting up the passing game. Regardless of who starts under center, fantasy owners shouldn't expect Jacksonville to be a high volume passing attack in 2017. Adjust your rankings for Allen Robinson, Marquis Lee and Allen Hurns accordingly.
