Minshew surprisingly ran for 344 yards last year, which will always help boost fantasy value. He'll be a fringe starter every single week and is currently a steal at his QB27 ADP price tag.

Minshew was a top ten fantasy quarterback from weeks 1-9 last season, has upgraded weapons surrounding him, underrated rushing ability (344 yards rushing in 14 games, fifth most in the league) @mrhill9169 Gardner Minshew had the third-best passer rating on play-action throws last year (136.4), but the lowest rate of play-action passes (14%) among 34 qualifying QBs (via PFF). @Pat_Thorman

Minshew is someone who might be a bit underrated by fantasy owners coming into the 2020 fantasy season. It took an average of 15.2 fantasy points to finish as a top-18 quarterback in 2019. Minshew hit that mark in 71.4 percent of his starts, highlighting a sturdy floor, as there were just 11 quarterbacks who posted a higher number than him. With no competent backup, this is Minshew's team to run for the season, and that brings stability in 2QB leagues.

I'll admit it, I was wrong. I was sure the Jags would bring in some serious competition for GMII but instead they brought in some really sensible supporting pieces, a raw rookie and Mike Glennon. This isn't Minshew's position to lose, it's Minshew's role for 2020 and maybe beyond. While I don't think it's impossible Doug Marrone brings in Cam Newton, i reckon it's more likely the Jags stick with Minshew through 2020 and reassess before the 2021 draft. While they may be in full rebuild, there's likely to be enough passing volume in this attack to make Gardner a low level streaming option this season with upside for more if things really click.

Jags love him and has the potential to be adequate and sometimes above-average fantasy producer
