QB - SEA
Week 8 Outlook
Jake Luton completed 16-of-37 passes for 151 yards and four interceptions in the Jaguars' Week 11 loss to the Steelers by a 27-3 score.
Luton did not make a good case for him to keep his job with fellow QB Gardner Minshew almost ready to come back from his thumb injury. Fantasy owners should be keeping an eye on updates going into Week 12 to see who gets the start for the Jaguars.
Jake Luton went 18-for-35 for 169 yards and threw a touchdown while also giving up an interception on Sunday as the Jaguars lost to the Packers by a 24-20 score in Week 10 action.
Luton had to deal with windy conditions in Green Bay on Sunday and the Jaguars played a short passing/ball control offense. The rookie QB will look to get another start in Week 11 when the team faces the Steelers in a matchup that could be tough for Luton. He is only worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues at this point.
Jake Luton has been confirmed the starter for the Jaguars Week 10 matchup vs. the Packers.
HC Doug Marrone confirmed on Monday that Luton will get the start vs. Green Bay. Gardner Minshew is expected to miss another week with a thumb injury, and at this point, it's unclear if he will get the job back when he's healthy. Luton was solid in Sunday's loss to the Texans, completing 26 of 38 passes for 304 yards and one touchdown, and rushing for another. Luton could potentially have value in Super-FLEX leagues, but with a healthy Minshew on the horizon, it's hard to predict moving forward.
Jake Luton completed 26-of-38 passes for 304 yards with a touchdown and an interception and rushed for a 13-yard touchdown in his debut against the Texans on Sunday.
Making his NFL debut, Luton looked solid on the field and hit an impressive 68% of his passes. It looks like regular starter Gardner Minshew will miss another game with his thumb injury and Luton should be making the start in Week 10 against the Packers.
Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone told reporters on Monday that rookie QB Jake Luton will start Week 9 vs. the Texans in place of the injured Gardner Minshew II.
Marrone added that Minshew will not be disciplined for hiding the thumb injury. Luton, a sixth-round draft pick out of Oregon State, will get his first reps in an NFL game Sunday against the Texans.
