Bortles has a good matchup against the Patriots 26th ranked fantasy quarterback defense, but he is wildly inconsistent.

Bortles wasn't asked to do much for the most part against the Steelers, as Jacksonville relied heavily on its running game throughout. His mediocre numbers aside, Bortles came through when it counted, making several clutch throws to put the game away. But he'll need to do much better getting the ball to his receivers to have a chance to match the Patriots this weekend. Although New England's pass defense has been excellent over the second half of the season, Bortles should have the rare negative game script on Sunday, which should allow him to throw early and often. While it may not look pretty, the chances of a decent fantasy day are high, making him in play as a DFS option.
