Jaguars QB Blake Bortles in step with coach's criticism
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles certainly does not disagree with Gus Bradley, who offered Monday that the rookie must perform better than he did in the lopsided loss Sunday at Indianapolis.

Bradley complained that Bortles held onto the ball too long at times and was slow with his decision-making.

"That's pretty obvious - that I can do better and do more in my efforts to help this team be more successful," Bortles told the Florida Times-Union. "There are things that could definitely happen quicker and those are things I'm looking at that I can probably get off of quicker and make a quicker decision."

Making his eighth straight start, Bortles completed just 15 of 27 passes for 146 yards, no touchdowns and one interception against the Colts.

Breakthrough short-lived for Cecil Shorts
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

One week after catching five passes for 119 yards, Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts caught one for 6 Week 12 at Indianapolis. It was kind of like how he caught three passes for 12 yards one week after catching 10 for 103 Week 6 at Tennessee.

To put it another way, Shorts has gone for more than 100 yards in two games this season. He's gone for less than 50 in the other six.

Playing for the Jaguars, he's obviously not much of a scoring threat, having been held out of the end zone since scoring in his season debut back in Week 3. He's the most targeted player on the Jaguars, at least among those who haven't suffered a season-ending injury (apologies to Allen Robinson), but working with a rookie quarterback on the league's lowest-scoring offense, that doesn't count for much.

Given the limitations of his supporting cast, Shorts' big games aren't especially big, and they don't happen often enough for you to bother with him in standard Fantasy leagues.

Jaguars' Andre Branch expected to practice Wednesday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

The Jaguars announced defensive lineman Andre Branch is expected to return to practice Wednesday.

Branch has been sidelined since suffering a torn groin muscle Week 7 and was expected to miss six weeks. In seven games, Branch produced 13 combined tackles and forced two fumbles. The Jaguars next play Sunday against Indianapolis.

Denard Robinson picks odd week to struggle
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though his Week 12 opponent, the Colts, had struggled against the run, having allowed the third-most yards per carry coming into the game, Jaguars running back Denard Robinson looked more like his predecessor against them, picking up 25 yards on 14 carries.

Meanwhile, his predecessor, Toby Gerhart, was inexplicably productive in limited chances, leading the team with 31 yards on four carries.

Granted, Gerhart's four carries were more or less his usual allotment since Robinson assumed the lead role, so there's no reason to think the Jaguars are having second thoughts about the distribution of carries. Still, given that Robinson had averaged 97.3 rushing yards in his previous four games, including 108 against a tough Dolphins run defense in Week 8, this performance wasn't what his Fantasy owners were expecting to see.

Chalk it up as just a bad day for Robinson and give him another chance Week 13 against a Giants defense that entered Week 12 ranked dead last against the run.

Jaguars DST holds its own
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Despite facing a Colts team that entered the day ranked No. 1 in total offense and No. 3 in scoring offense, the Jaguars had a standout performance defensively Week 12 at Indianapolis. They allowed 23 points on 389 yards, equaled a season high with five sacks and recovered three fumbles.

In standard CBSSports.com leagues, the performance yielded the Jaguars DST 13 Fantasy points. The only time it did better was Week 7 against Cleveland, when it had 19.

Even with the encouraging performance, the Jaguars DST remains an unreliable Fantasy option. It has a favorable matchup Week 13 against the Giants, but you can probably do better in standard 12-team leagues.
