There’s been a ton of chatter about Blake Bortles this offseason. Is he good enough to be a starter in this league? What is his future in Jacksonville? Can he ever live up to his NFL draft status? Unfortunately, the feedback is all negative. He’s one of the worst starters in the league, and the only reason it wasn’t discovered earlier is because he was putting up good enough fantasy numbers to convince a large majority of people that he was good enough.

Actually, the Jags are going to struggle majorly on offense – especially as Leonard Fournette, their star new runner, is banged up to start the year. Robinson is going to be frustrated, and so are his fantasy owners, for as long as Bortles is at the helm. And it couldn’t be a tougher start for Jacksonville, as they travel to Houston to play the Texans and their 2016 league-leading defense who are welcoming back three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt.

This game could get ugly, and now’s not the time to put your trust in “ARob’s talent – wait until they play a more reasonable defense and have a chance at putting up some points.
