Blake Bortles heading to Rams to backup Goff

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports Blake Bortles is finalizing a deal with the Rams to become Jared Goff's backup.

Fantasy Impact

The Rams were in the market for a backup quarterback and they get their guy in Blake Bortles, who recently visited the team. Bortles was released a couple of weeks ago after the Jaguars signed Nick Foles. It appears as if Bortles' days of being a starter in this league are over.

Blake Bortles released by Jaguars

Blake Bortles has been released by the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

This move has been expected since it was reported that Jacksonville would sign Nick Foles to be their starting QB. Bortles showed flashes of competence over the years, but he ultimately struggled given so many opportunities in Jacksonville.

Blake Bortles to be released by Jaguars

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Jaguars are expected to release Blake Bortles once the Nick Foles signing becomes official.

Fantasy Impact

Foles can't officially sign for a few days but the Jags are fully expected to release Bortles at that time. Bortles was miserable in Jacksonville last year after signing a three-year extension prior to the season. He has had some fantasy relevance over the years but those days are most definitely over.

Blake Bortles struggles once again in season finale

Blake Bortles completed 15-of-28 passes for 107 yards with no touchdowns and an interception while adding four rushes for 15 yards Sunday in the Jaguars’ Week 17 loss to Houston.

Fantasy Impact

Bortles may have won the starting QB job back last week but he did not show that he deserves to back next season as the Jaguars will have a decision to make. Bortles does have a large contract which may keep him around but look for the team to be trying to find alternatives in the offseason.

Blake Bortles enters game in second half of Week 16 win

Blake Bortles completed five of six passes for 39 yards during Sunday's 17-7 win over the Dolphins. He also rushed four times for 25 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Bortles had been benched the last three games in favor of Cody Kessler. But Kessler was struggling enough to be replaced in the second half of the game against the Dolphins. There is a good chance that Bortles gets the start in Week 17 but he is not fantasy relevant.
