Will backup Gardner Minshew
After losing starter Nick Foles to a broken clavicle on Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars have traded a fifth-round pick in 2020 to Pittsburgh for quarterback Joshua Dobbs. Dobbs will back up Gardner Minshew, the Jaguars’ sixth-round pick this year who turned in a record-setting performance in Sunday’s loss to Kansas City after replacing Foles. (ESPN)
Nerdy Football Analysis: The loss of Foles required Jacksonville to go quarterback shopping and they found a willing partner in Pittsburgh. Dobbs won’t be a fantasy factor unless Minshew fails. Minshew did perform well in his debut yesterday but given his youth and inexperience, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Dobbs get some playing time over the next couple months.
