2014 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Jun-25-2014 by Daniel Kalles
Blake Bortles was drafted as the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, making him the first QB off the board. Bortles is the quarterback of the future for Jacksonville, but the team has stated that they plan to bring him along slowly (while allowing veteran Chad Henne to start this season). Don't be surprised if Bortles is starting by the end of the season as they look to get him some game-action (something similar to when the NY Giants sat Eli Manning for the first seven games and let the veteran Kurt Warner start). Bortles' only value is in dynasty leagues, deep leagues and start 2QB leagues. Even if he does start at some point during the season, we shouldn't expect much out of him in his first year, as the Jags just don't have enough weapons that are ready to contribute. The future of suspended receiver Justin Blackmon and the development of rookie WRs Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee will help dictate how soon Bortles can be effective. Bortles is being drafted on average as the third QB in Dynasty rookie drafts at the end of the 2nd round.
