In years past, Blake Bortles has made his living on garbage time. Now that he's failed to throw the ball more than 35 times all season, you won't see him near the top of fantasy leaderboards. With that being said, we have to at least consider him against the Colts this week. Through six weeks, there hasn't been a single quarterback to play against them who finished outside of the top 14 quarterbacks for that particular week. They're allowing 8.5 yards per attempt on the season, which has led to allowing 307.7 passing yards per game. If Fournette isn't 100 percent, the Jaguars may be forced to lean on Bortles a bit more. He's in the high-end QB2 conversation this week.

Bortles is going against the 3rd worst fantasy quarterback defense, the Jags are still a running team, but he has low-upside QB2 value.
