2017 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Jun-17-2017 by Shawn Childs

Over three seasons in the NFL, Bortles has a career 11-34 record with regression in his 2016 season even with a career-high 625 passing attempts. He threw for 3,905 yards with 23 passing TDs and 16 Ints. In his first two years in the league, Blake was sacked 106 times. His stats looked impressive in 2015 (4,428 passing yards with 37 combined TDs and 310 yards rushing). The Jaguars did a better job protecting Bortles last year (34 sacks), but he gained only 6.2 yards per rush. His completion rate (58.9) remains in a short area. In 2016, he had five games with over 300 yards passing, but only one game with over two passing TDs. His receiving core had talent at wide receiver with a viable pass-catching option out of the backfield. The structure of this offense points to more runs in 2017, which suggests Blake will become more of a game manager this season. This may lead to more passing TDs and bigger plays in the passing game especially if Leonard Fournette turns into a stud rushing the ball. His window to be a starting QB in the NFL is at a break point. Bortles should have a floor of 4,000 combined yards with enough talent to approach 30 TDs. I view him as a QB2 in 12-team leagues.
