Blake Bortles not only has taken on the look of one of the NFL's top emerging young quarterbacks this season, he has taken on the look of a strong FanDuel quarterback as well.
That goes for several other Jaguars offensive players as well.
Allen Robinson, T.J. Yeldon and Julius Thomas have continued to improve in recent weeks, and with Allen Hurns cleared from the concussion protocol, the Jaguars could have their entire group of young, improving skill players when they play the Indianapolis Colts at home on Sunday.
Here is the FanDuel outlook for the Jaguars against the Colts Sunday:
QB Blake Bortles ($7,700)—How hot is Bortles (20.5 FPPG)? He not only threw a career-high five touchdown passes against Tennessee Sunday, he went without an interception for the first time in eight games. The five touchdowns gives him a franchise-record 27 for the season, and with the Jaguars' defense struggling there's reason to think Bortles and the offense will need to score points to have a chance the rest of the season. Bortles is averaging 272.8 yards a game passing, and with Allen Robinson improving by the week, the deep pass has been a consistent weapon for Bortles this season.
WR Allen Robinson ($8,500)—As hot as Bortles has been, Robinson (17.2 FPPG) has been just as hot. Robinson, who had 10 receptions for 153 yards and three touchdowns against the Titans, not only has a franchise-record 11 touchdowns receiving this season, he has touchdowns in six of his last eight games. He also has four 100-yard-plus games this season and has taken on the look of Bortles' go-to guy in the red zone and in the deep passing game.
WR Allen Hurns ($6,600)—Hurns (12.7 FPPG) was cleared from the concussion protocol Monday and expects to play against the Colts. He and Robinson each will be playing a cornerbacks combination – Vontae Davis and Greg Tolar – that has struggled at times this season and helped allow three touchdown passes to the Steelers on Sunday.
TE Julius Thomas ($5,900)—Thomas is the 12th-rated FanDuel tight end at 8.7 FPPG points a game, and he has gotten hot in recent weeks after a long stretch gaining chemistry with Bortles. He has touchdowns in his last three games, and Bortles has started to look comfortable looking for Thomas in the red zone.
RB T.J. Yeldon ($6,400) – Yeldon (11.0 FPPG) has impressed Jaguars coaches by becoming an every-down running back as a rookie, and he had perhaps his best game of the season Sunday against Tennessee. He rushed for 57 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries and caught four passes for 79 yards with a 67-yard reception.
