Cody Kessler gets benched in win over the Dolphins

The Jaguars benched Cody Kessler in favor of Blake Bortles in the second half of Week 16 against the Dolphins. Kessler finished 12-of-17 for 106 yards and five sacks absorbed, rushing once for a gain of two.

Fantasy Impact

You know you are having a bad day when you get benched for Blake Bortles. Expect Kessler to sit out in Week 17 as the Jaguars have a financial investment in Bortles and will probably start him over Kessler. Fantasy owners can drop Kessler.

Cody Kessler has a poor day throwing the ball in Week 15

Cody Kessler was 9-for-17 for 57 yards and an interception and rushed six times for 68 yards as the Jaguars lost to the Redskins by a 16-13 score on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

You know your passing game is bad when Kessler ran for more yards than he passed. This was not a good performance by the veteran QB who could be benched for Week 16. And if he doesn't lose his job he should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Cody Kessler so-so in loss to Titans

Cody Kessler completed 25 of his 43 pass attempts for 240 yards and a touchdown. He rushed five times for 17 yards, but he also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Impact

Kessler wasn't awful given the low expectations. For those forced to use him, he did deliver double-digit points, and the 240 yards are his high on the season. He's also running a little bit like Blake Bortles had been doing under center. Still, he's not someone to consider outside the deepest of 2QB leagues down the stretch.

Cody Kessler throws for 150 yards in win over the Colts

Cody Kessler was 18-for-24 for 150 yards and rushed five times for 36 yards as the Jaguars defeated the Colts 6-0 in Week 13 action.

Fantasy Impact

Kessler's stats in Week 13 were not impressive as he took over as the starter for the Jaguars. But Kessler was able to avoid making costly mistakes and did enough to lead the Jaguars to a win. Kessler should get the start in Week 14 but is not worth grabbing in fantasy.

Cody Kessler named Jaguars starting QB

The Jacksonville Jaguars have named Cody Kessler their starting quarterback for Week 13 versus the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

It’s been a brutal year in Jacksonville. The defense has been disappointing but it didn’t matter with how poorly Blake Bortles played. Kessler will finish out the season before the team adresses the position over the off-season.
