Player Outlook

Remember when Blake Bortles was a great Fantasy quarterback? Remember those glory days of Bortles' garbage-time goodness? Until Bortles lands in a starting job again, Fantasy managers have no use for him.

Player News
  • Bortles completed one of two passes for three yards and rushed twice for minus-9 yards while appearing in three games during the 2019 season. The 27-year-old signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Rams in the spring knowing that he would be in line for a backup job behind Jared Goff, and Bortles stayed in that role all season since Goff didn't miss a game. Bortles is set to hit free agency again in March and essentially finds himself in the same position as he was after being let go by the Jaguars last year. He shouldn't have a problem securing a contract for the 2020 campaign, but he's unlikely to be viewed as much more than a high-end backup.

  • Bortles completed one of his two pass attempts for three yards during Sunday's 34-7 win over Arizona. He played seven snaps in relief of starting quarterback Jared Goff once the game was out of reach for the Cardinals. While this was the third time Bortles has seen the field this season, Sunday's two throws were his first of the campaign. He's locked into a backup role, and as long as Goff is healthy, Bortles is nothing more than a speculative stash in two-quarterback settings.

  • Bortles completed three of eight pass attempts for 50 yards, adding one rush for three yards during Saturday's 14-3 loss to the Raiders. Bortles led the Rams offense to only three first downs on his two offensive drives, continuing a dreadful streak of play that goes back to 2018. He completed 53.6 percent of his passes and averaged 112.7 passing yards per game over his final three starts as a Jaguar, and now has his career in Los Angeles off to a precarious start. Given his starting experience, durability and pockets of proficient play throughout five pro seasons, Bortles stands as one of the better backup quarterbacks in the NFL, but Los Angeles will have to live with occasionally static offensive production, as well as a high volume of turnovers should the 27-year-old signal-caller ever be forced into action.

  • Bortles finalized a one-year, $1 million contract with the Rams on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Rams get a nice bargain with their backup quarterback, as any money Bortles receives on the new contract simply reduces the $6.5 million he's guaranteed from the Jaguars. He should be a big upgrade on the Rams' backup from the past two season (Sean Mannion) and isn't likely to face any serious competition for the No. 2 job this summer. Given the wealth of talent in the Los Angeles offense, Bortles could warrant fantasy consideration if starter Jared Goff misses time with an injury during the 2019 campaign.

  • Bortles is set to visit with the Rams on Monday, Michael Silver of Sports Illustrated reports. This likely begins the transition for Bortles from a starter to a backup role since Jared Goff will continue to lead to Rams for the foreseeable future. Although Bortles struggled as a starter with Jacksonville, he'd be a quality backup, as he completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,718 yards, 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 2018.
