Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

The Blake Bortles as a game manager strategy almost landed the Jaguars a Super Bowl berth last season so it's hard to envision we won't see more of the same going forward. Last year's first round pick, Leonard Fournette, rushed for more than 1000 yards in just 13 games last season and Jacksonville's above average offensive line and run-heavy offense are going to be the primary means of moving the football. The Jags already field an elite defense chalked full of young talent, which means there's no need to get overly aggressive in the passing game most weeks, as was evident last season when Bortles attempted 100 fewer passes than in 2016 and topped 60% in completions for the first time in his career. Jacksonville also let Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns walk via free agency, opting to go with Dede Westbrook, Marqise Lee, Keelan Cole, and new additions Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Donte Moncrief. Jacksonville's defense is arguably the best in the league, and still relatively young, which means we aren't likely to return to the days of Blake Bortles posting big garbage time stats. Instead, his running ability helps boost his value, and the hope is that he can continue to evolve as a passer, something we saw a bit of in the 2017 playoffs.

2018 Season Outlook

The Jags have noted that they may have Bortles get more aggressive downfield this season, which makes sense with their personnel changes, as Westbrook, Cole, and Moncrief all have big play ability. That would be good for the offense overall and should help Bortles from a fantasy perspective, but he's never going to be throwing the ball 35+ times a game by design so his fantasy ceiling is capped.
