  • Bortles completed 17 of 30 pass attempts for 154 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 19-7 win over the Browns. He also gained four yards on four carries and lost a fumble. Bortles simply played the role of game manager in this one, as the defense and the rushing attack allowed him to take a conservative approach. He connected with Marcedes Lewis for a 10-yard touchdown in the first quarter, but provided few highlights the rest of the day en route to 5.1 yards per attempt. This meager output was only Bortles' fourth-lowest of the season, illustrating the team's desire to minimize the burden on him. This trend seems likely to continue next week against the Cardinals.

  • Bortles completed 28 of 51 passes for 273 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions while adding 34 yards on five carries in Sunday's 20-17 overtime win over the Chargers. Bortles came in riding a season-best two-game streak without an interception, but he was picked off on two of his season-high 51 passing attempts. Both of Bortles' interceptions came with his team trailing by three points with under two minutes to play in regulation, but Los Angeles miraculously still managed to blow its late lead. This performance shows that the 2014 first-rounder can't be trusted to provide strong fantasy numbers even when his team chooses to lean on the passing game.

  • Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Throws touchdown in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bortles completed 24 of 38 passes for 259 yards and a touchdown and added 20 rushing yards in Sunday's 23-7 win over the Bengals. Bortles accounted for the Jaguars' lone offensive touchdown in the second quarter on Sunday when he found Marquise Lee on the quick slant for a three-yard score. The 38 passing attempts were a season high for Bortles, with Leonard Fournette's benching undoubtedly playing a role in his elevated volume. Expect Fournette back next week and Bortles to consequently be thrust back into a caretaker role. Despite his solid play, he's thrown multiple touchdown passes just once this season.

  • Bortles completed 18 of 26 passes for 33 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-0 win over the Colts. He also gained 11 yards on four carries and lost a fumble. Bortles was quite efficient on the afternoon, but he also did damage with the deep ball, completing three passes of at least 45 yards. He connected with newfound red zone weapon Marcedes Lewis for a five-yard touchdown strike in the first quarter and likely could've done even more damage, had the team not turned it over to the running game with a large lead. Bortles has still yet to string together multiple effective outings, but he will have the luxury of a bye week before attempting to build on this performance against the Bengals in Week 9.

  • Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Struggles in loss to Rams
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bortles completed 23 of 35 pass attempts for 241 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Rams. He added 19 rushing yards on two carries. The Jaguars were unable to hide Bortles behind their strong defense and ascending run game like they did last week in Pittsburgh and the outcome of the game, unsurprisingly, was much different. The struggling signal caller is now averaging a career-low 55 percent of his passes and has topped 7.0 YPA just once in six games. Since their quarterback situation is unlikely to improve anytime soon, don't be surprised if the Jacksonville coaching staff continues forward with an offensive strategy that revolves around a heavy, heavy dose of Leonard Fournette in order to minimize the number of times Bortles needs to throw.
