2015 NFL Draft – 3rd Overall Pick – Jaguars draft Dante Fowler, Jr.

Adding to Gus Bradley’s young defense, the Jaguars pick edge rusher Dante Fowler out of Florida with the third overall pick.

Fowler is the top defensive player off the board but should only contribute to dynasty leagues as a sack specialist. He won’t be drafted highly in dynasty rookie drafts unless you have big play scoring. He’ll be a much more effective real-life player than a fantasy player.

Dynasty Impact – Jacksonville Jaguars select Blake Bortles, QB

bortlesDynasty Impact: Bortles is the most raw of the top quarterback prospects this year but could, potentially, be the best. At 6′ 5″ and 232-pounds, Bortles is a huge player but still needs some refinement in his foot work and will need to learn how to play to NFL competition after playing at small school Central Florida. He’ll most likely sit for a year behind starter Chad Henne but should be handed the reins in 2015. Now, as to whether he’ll have the weapons to succeed is another story. Nonetheless, he’s a lottery ticket that could pay off. For dynasty purposes, he’s an ideal quarterback to draft for your taxi squad.

Dynasty Recap – Week 3 – Seahawks destroy Jaguars 45-17

  • This game got out of hand early which meant Marshawn Lynch was pulled. After that, rookie Christine Michael was the lead back and had nine carries compared to three for Robert Turbin. Michael will be very good and even better because of the system he’s in.
  • Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts had 15 targets to go with his eight catches and 143 yards. It’s good to see Shorts won’t be held back because of poor quarterback play. It does remain to be seen how his targets are affected when Justin Blackmon returns. Either way, an improved quarterback next year should help Shorts’ cause. He’s a long-term hold.
  • Seattle rookie tight end Luke Willson had a nice day in clean-up duty with five catches and 76 yards. Incumbent Zach Miller has an almost $5M cap hit next year so don’t be surprised if he gets cut and Willson steps in. He’s a long-term hold.
  • Jaguars rookie safety John Cyprien had a nice day with seven tackles, one sack, and a forced fumble. He’s getting his chance and should be a DB1 for many years to come.
