|Blake Bortles heads into the 2015 season as the undisputed starting quarterback but he will have to show more to convince fantasy owners he can guide them to a championship. The first quarterback selected in the 2014 draft surpassed a modest 250 yards passing in only three of his fourteen games played. His success will be determined by his ability to stay in the pocket and become a better pure passer first and a scrambler only when the play breaks down. The team continued to improve the personnel around Bortles in the off-season adding running back T.J. Yeldon through the draft and former Broncos tight end Julius Thomas in free agency. The continued development of a young receiving corps and backfield under new OC Greg Olsen will need to grow with Bortles for this offense to sustain any kind of worthwhile fantasy production in 2015.
Veteran Chad Henne remains with Jacksonville as the backup quarterback. With the team already expected to lean more heavily on the ground game, Henne would not be a viable option if asked to fill in for Bortles at any point of the season.

Gus Bradley: Healthy starters will play in season finale
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Dec 29, 1:05 am
|Jags HC Gus Bradley said this week he wasn’t inclined to sit healthy players against the Texans. Any lineup changes would be based on giving the Jaguars the best chance to beat Houston.
T.J. Yeldon is doubtful and unlikely to see action, but there are four players that it would make sense to sit down in the finale or at least reduce their snaps: receivers Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns, tight end Julius Thomas and cornerback Davon House. (Jacksonville.com)|
FFToday's Take: “My mindset is that if the guys are healthy and they can go, we talk about always compete, so let’s compete,” Bradley said.
Follow the injury report closely if you've got some relevant Jaguars, but don't be afraid to run out Blake Bortles and other top guys like Allen Robinson and Denard Robinson.

FFToday's Take: Hurns was taken off the field last week on a stretcher and later diagnosed with a concussion. He's a longshot to play against the Titans in Week 13, leaving Allen Robinson and TE Julius Thomas as the main targets for Blake Bortles.
