Regardless of what you've heard, Bortles has finished as a top-10 quarterback in each of the last two seasons. With that being said, he has a new head coach who wants to run the ball. They brought in Leonard Fournette to do just that, so not only will you see a decrease in Bortles' overall pass attempts, but you'll also see a decline in his rushing output, which has been better than most think. He's a streamer in 2017.

Blake Bortles retained by Jaguars through 2018

The Jacksonville Jaguars have picked up quarterback Blake Bortles' fifth-year option.

Fantasy Impact

The Jaguars have retained Bortles through the 2018 season. They picked up his fifth-year option Monday despite reports stating that they would decline it. Although Bortles has shown signs promise since entering the league in 2014, he's stalled more than he's taken off. From a fantasy perspective, Bortles is a solid borderline QB1/ QB2 with tons of upside. He produced a 3,905-23-16 stat line while completing 58.9 percent of his passes and throwing for at least 300 yards in five games last season. The 25-year-old signal caller is entering his make or break year in 2017 and could be in line for his biggest statistical season as a pro.
