Jaguars' Blake Bortles picked off twice in defeat to Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles was picked off twice in a disappointing Week 8 outing against the Dolphins.

Bortles was picked off by Louis Delmas, who took it back 81 yards for a Miami touchdown in the second quarter. Brent Grimes picked off Bortles in the third quarter and also took 22 yards for a touchdown. His only bright spot of the afternoon was a 48-yard touchdown pass to Allen Robinson late in the fourth quarter.

Bortles compiled 221 yards through the air while completing 18 of 34 pass attempts. He added a touchdown and two interceptions, registering a 58.6 passer rating. He was sacked four times and rushed for 48 yards on six carries in a 27-13 defeat.

Bortles will look to bounce back Week 9 at Cincinnati.


Learning curve too steep for Blake Bortles


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The potential for greatness is there with Blake Bortles. The physical tools are all there, and he shows the actual skills every Sunday, in fits and starts. However, after five starts, it is pretty clear the rookie just isn't going to get there this season.

Bortles turned the ball over three more times in Week 8 against the Dolphins, giving him 13 in five and a half games. It was probably his worst game yet as a professional, as he logged just one garbage-time touchdown and completed a career-low 52.9 percent of his pass attempts for 221 yards.

The good news for Bortles' long-term Fantasy value is, he looks like a legitimate weapon in the running game. His per-game average of 31.8 rushing yards comes out to 500-plus over 16 games and would have put him in the top-5 among all running backs a year ago. Once he figures out how to harness his talents in the passing game, his ceiling could be very, very high.

The Jaguars' offense surrounding Bortles is young as well, so extended stretches of malaise are to be expected. In a keeper league, there might still be room on your roster for Bortles, but there is little reason to think he will provide value this season -- the learning curve is proving too steep. 


Sweet outweighs sour Sunday for Jaguars QB Blake Bortles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles had a Jekyll-Hyde Sunday against the Browns, but the bottom line was his first career victory.

Bortles completed 17 of 31 passes for 159 yards and a 31-yard touchdown pass to Allen Robinson late in the second quarter that gave his team the lead for good. But he also fired three interceptions to increase his season total to 10. The last of the trio was picked off in the red zone.

The rookie was 0 for 2 in the first quarter before finding the range. But the team stayed mostly on the ground down the stretch - he threw just five passes in the fourth quarter.

Bortles and the Jaguars will try to run with their momentum in Week 8 against Miami.


Blake Bortles still tough to rely on


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles put together his first 20-Fantasy point effort last week, and will try to build on that in Week 7 against the Browns.

Bortles racked up a career-high 336 yards through the air and 38 on the ground last week, and will look to carry that momentum into Sunday's game. However, the Browns have mostly held their own against quarterbacks this season, allowing just one game with more than 20 Fantasy points, to Charlie Whitehurst in Week 5.

Bortles is very much a work-in-progress, as evidenced by his seven interceptions in three and a half games. Though he showed what kind of upside he has last week, he remains too risky to start outside of deeper, two-QB leagues at this point. 


Blake Bortles looking to turn things around vs. slumping Titans


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) The Titans had a solid pass defense last season, as they allowed a league-low 15 passing touchdowns, and looked to be continuing that trend through the first three games of the season, when they allowed just two scores through the air. However, things have fallen apart over the last two games, which could open a chance for Blake Bortles to succeed in Week 6 for the Jaguars.

The Titans have been gashed for 64 Fantasy points by opposing quarterbacks over the last two games, and that isn't all because of Andrew Luck. Though Luck put up 37 points against the Titans, Brian Hoyer followed it up with 27 in Week 5, passing for three touchdowns and just one interception. Bortles has had a predictably rough introduction to the starting role, but the Titans seem vulnerable at this point.

Bortles fell apart last week, tossing two interceptions without a score en route to a measly 3 Fantasy points. However, he is talented enough that a breakout game seems likely at some point. Though he is not a dependable option, Bortles might be worth rolling the dice on in two-QB leagues. 


Jaguars' Dwayne Gratz still not cleared from concussion


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Jaguars cornerback Dwayne Gratz has yet to be medically cleared from a concussion, Gus Bradley told the media on Monday, per the team's official website. The team should know more about his status on Tuesday or Wednesday leading up to Week 6 at Tennessee.

Blake Bortles too unreliable at this point


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles' talent is undeniable, but his introduction to the NFL has not gone smoothly, as he tossed a pair of interceptions for the third straight game to open his career in Week 5 against the Steelers.

Since entering Week 3's game against the Colts in the second half, Bortles' production has fallen off in each successive game. He has gone from 9.29 yards per attempt and two touchdowns in his relief work to just 5.31 yards per attempt and no scores Sunday. He was hurt, yet again, by some drops from the receiving corps, but continues to hurt himself with poor decisions.

Questionable decision making is to be expected from a rookie quarterback, but that doesn't excuse it. The Jaguars have some good young talent around Bortles, but this offense is very much a work-in-progress still, especially with a nonexistent running game. Though Bortles is owned in 36 percent of CBSSports.com leagues right now, it is hard to see him being worthy of starting in Week 5, even against a Titans defense that just allowed three touchdowns to Brian Hoyer. 


Jaguars QB Blake Bortles still searching for first career win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles threw two interceptions during a 17-9 loss Week 5 vs. Pittsburgh. Bortles, who was making his second career start, completed 22 of 36 passes for 191 yards, while rushing for 14 yards on four carries.

He has three touchdowns and six interceptions in three games played this season. The Jaguars are back in action Week 6 at Tennessee.


Blake Bortles tosses one touchdown Week 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles tossed one touchdown Week 4 against the Chargers. 

Bortles completed 29 of 37 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown. He threw two interceptions during the contest. Bortles didn't have a ton of opportunities for big plays. Though he did throw completions of 30 and 44 yards, Bortles averaged 6.8 yards per attempt. It didn't help that Bortles lost wide receiver Cecil Shorts during the second half. Bortles also had 24 rushing yards during the contest.

Bortles will look for more Week 5 against the Steelers.


Blake Bortles gets his shot Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles got his shot Week 3 against the Colts. 

Bortles entered in the third quarter, and provided the offense with some spark. It didn't come at first, though. Bortles was able to lead the team to a field goal in his second drive, but threw his first interception on the next drive. He would toss his first touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. Bortles found Allen Hurns on a 63 yard reception for the score. He would throw another interception, which would be returned for a touchdown, but bounced back with another score before the game ended. 

Bortles finished 14 of 24, with 233 yards. He threw two touchdowns and two interceptions. After the game, it was announced Bortles would be the starter Week 4 against the Chargers. 


Chad Henne removed after struggling Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne was pulled in favor of Blake Bortles Week 3.

Henne completed 4 of 7 passes for 33 yards. He averaged just 4.7 yards per attempt. He did not throw any touchdowns or interceptions. With the team down 30-0 at the half, Henne was benched in favor of Bortles. 

Henne will take on a backup role Week 4 against the Chargers. 


Jaguars haven't changed stance -- Chad Henne still starting QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) The Jaguars confirmed again Wednesday veteran Chad Henne will remain the team's starting quarterback heading into Week 3 against the Colts. It comes two days after coach Gus Bradley said during his Monday press conference Henne will remain the starter.

The calls for rookie quarterback and first-round pick Blake Bortles have been loud following a 0-2 start for Jacksonville.


Jaguars not looking to change QB


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne will remain the team's starter for Week 3 against the Colts, head coach Gus Bradley announced during his press conference Monday.

Henne had a rough go of it in a 41-10 loss to Washington Sunday, but received little help from his offensive line as he was sacked 10 times in the game. At least for the time being, it looks like Blake Bortles is not expected to get a chance for the 0-2 Jaguars. 


Chad Henne sacked 10 times in losing effort


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne took a beating in Sunday's 41-10 loss in Washington in Week 2.

Henne was sacked 10 times in the game, as the offensive line consistently collapsed around him. He ended up completed 14 of 28 passes for 193 yards in the game, including one touchdown, a 63-yard strike to Marcedes Lewis. He was also intercepted once, and added 17 yards on three carries in the loss.

Chad Henne named Week 1 starter


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley is sticking to his plan, at least for now. He has named Chad Henne the starting quarterback for Week 1 at Philadelphia, according to the Florida Times-Union. The announcement came following Friday's preseason game against Detroit.

Henne led his team to only one scoring drive (field goal), and took a backseat to rookie Blake Bortles late in the first half. The rookie worked with the first unit and orchestrated a scoring drive (field goal) before half time.

Bortles made an impressive throw to Allen Hurns for a 28-yard gain. He followed it up with a 30-yard completion to veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis. After halftime, he hooked up with Hurns for a 13-yard touchdown, his first touchdown of the preseason.

Bortles compiled 158 yards through the air while completing 10 of 16 passes. He added a touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 116.1 quarterback rating. He has 435 passing yards through his first three preseason games.

Henne completed 9 of 14 pass attempts for 70 yards. He was sacked twice and finished with a 76.5 passer rating. Through three preseason games, Henne has passed for 230 yards.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Blake Bortles has another impressive showing


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles had another impressive showing during Thursday’s preseason game against the Bears in Chicago.

Bortles competed a 29-yard dart to Kerry Taylor in the opening drive of the second half, but had a 3rd-and-3 pass intended for Taylor batted down in the end zone to stall the drive.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Blake Bortles 'poised and confident' in scrimmage


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles "looked poised and confident" in Saturday's scrimmage, completing 9 of 13 passes for 79 yards and a touchdown, reports ESPN.com. One of his passes was dropped, another batted down at the line of scrimmage.

"I think it was all right," Bortles said of his performance. "I could have done a lot of things better. That’s part of it -- learn from my mistakes and try to improve."

Bortles lofted a 25-yard sideline completion to Mike Brown and threw a 3-yard touchdown to tight end D.J. Tialavea.


Jags update Blake Bortles' progress


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said No. 3 overall pick Blake Bortles showed "quality retention of the scheme" coming off the five-week break into training camp, reports the Florida Times-Union.

"One of the things we asked of him was to come in here and not just start from Day One again," Fisch said. "We didn't want Groundhog Day. We didn't want a repeat performance. We didn't want it to be like nothing has changed from the day before. So, how much does he know and recall? What he showed me is he actually dug deeper into the plays."

Fisch said Bortles, who remains the No. 2 quarterback behind Chad Henne, has a good grasp of the system.

"One of the things you worry about is how does a guy handle something he's never done before," Fisch said. "He's had OTAs and minicamp. Now, he's got four weeks to figure out what he's going to do. I thought he really prepared, so he came back ahead of where I thought he was going to be."

The Jaguars are using the 6-5, 230-pound Bortles on rollouts, according to the paper. 

"I love the fact that when Blake moves, he's a strong, tough guy to bring down," Fisch said. "He also throws the ball nicely on the move. It's something clearly he's done throughout his career in college. That's part of our system, so they have to do that."
