2015 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
Bortles was supposed to spend his rookie year learning on the sidelines, but poor play from Chad Henne led to Blake starting from Week 4 on. After completing nearly 70 percent of the passes in his first three starts, defenses pretty much limited Bortles' upside over the final 10 games of the year. He threw for more than 250 yards only once during that time and recorded just three touchdowns through his last seven contests. He also had 15 interceptions in his first nine games. On the year, he completed 59 percent of his passes for 2,908 yards, 11 TDs and 17 INTs. The addition of Thomas at tight end and the maturation of three second-year wideouts should really help him. But Blake must minimize his mistakes and score more touchdowns in the red zone. With 16 starts in 2015, it wouldn't take much for him to reach 3,500 yards passing with another 500 yards rushing. For him to be a top-15 QB in FFWC scoring, Bortles would need to score 20 total TDs. His resume looks weak, but he has a chance to be a serviceable backup QB in Fantasy. He will have more upside if his offensive line protects him.
