Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has established a strong connection with new tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins during organized team activities. Bortles has often targeted ASF across the middle to utilize his strength and size. The two have also developed a downfield chemistry during workouts, and Seferian-Jenkins' ability to get open down the seam of the defense has been a theme at OTAs. The 25-year-old tight end has had his fair share of off-field trouble, but he looks to be past that and posted career highs in catches (50) and yards (357) in 13 games with the Jets last year. He's undoubtedly a big pass-catching upgrade on Marcedes Lewis. ASF could be a top-10 fantasy tight end in his new digs.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said quarterback Blake Bortles (wrist) has been "pain-free" with "no limitations" during his offseason training in California. Bortles should be good to go for all offseason workouts, barring any setbacks. Despite bouncing back in 2017 and leading the Jags to an AFC title appearance, Bortles was still a glorified game manager with a strong defense supporting him. He can have QB1 performances based on matchups, but he's best selected as a fantasy backup.

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles, who recently signed a three-year, $26 million guaranteed contract extension, isn't seen as a placeholder by the team. "He is not a place-holder. This wasn't a decision where he's going to be here for a year and we're going to be keeping our eyes out," general manager Dave Caldwell said. Bortles bounced back from an awful 2016 season to post a career-high 60.2 completion percentage while leading the team to an AFC title loss to the Patriots. He also had five games with a passer rating of 100. Bortles didn't do anything to kill the Jaguars this year, and he was helped by a strong defense on the other side. Don't be foolish to think that just because the Jags have more confidence in him that he'll suddenly become a QB1 for fantasy purposes.
