​If you're looking for a late-round flyer to be your starting quarterback in fantasy football, Blake Bortles may not be your guy. 

He's not even his own guy. 

The Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback says that he is, "owning the offense and having a better understanding of it" this year, but when asked about whether he would take himself in fantasy, Bortles thinks ​Leonard Fournette may be the better option for a draft pick. 

Thanks for the advice Blake. 

​​The Jaguars surprised the NFL last year when they reached the AFC Championship and pushed the New England Patriots to the edge. Bortles won some doubters over, but there are still people who believe this team is a good quarterback away from being a real Super Bowl contender. 

With ​Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts most likely returning to the field for the upcoming season, the Jaguars will probably face more competition within the division than last year.

Regardless of who they play, starting Blake at QB isn't the right fantasy call. At least not on Blake's team.
