Week 17 Quarterbacks – Rankings Analysis
Blake Bortles is up at #8 against a #12 consensus thanks to a date with an Indianapolis defense that has all but checked out on the 2016 season. To be honest, they weren’t ever really there in the first place. With so many quarterbacks dealing with uncertain scenarios regarding playoffs and being shut down, Bortles and the Jags have nothing scary surrounding them. Other than being Jacksonville, of course. With Gus Bradley out of the picture, the Jags looked rejuvenated against a beleaguered Titans defense in Week 16. Give Bortles a whirl as a true QB1 in Week 17.
Cam Newton may not have to deal with rumors about being pulled at halftime, but he does carry around the albatross of sucking lately. He just completed only 18-of-43 pass attempts in Week 16 against the Falcons, with a shoulder injury and general ineffectiveness truly bringing down his stock. He has had success against Tampa Bay in the past, but these Bucs are still mathematically in the playoff race and have been playing much defense lately compared to the past few years. Cam will struggle to be a QB1 on the road here.
