Nerdy Football Analysis: After being demoted for the all important third pre-season game, the Jags have elected to go with the uninspiring Bortles over the mediocre Chad Henne at quarterback for Week 1. Perhaps the mini-benching will light a flame under Bortles who has looked awful this pre-season. Bortles is back to being draftable in 2-QBs leagues but its a situation fantasy owners will want to avoid.
