News: 1 day agoMinshew (thumb) is inactive Week 11 against Pittsburgh.
Spin: Despite working up to a questionable tag following a week of limited practices, Minshew was never expected to suit up for this contest. The Jaguars will proceed with Jake Luton as the starting quarterback, with Mike Glennon on hand in a backup capacity.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Minshew's ascent was one of the league's best stories of 2019, as the Washington State star quickly emerged from sixth-round draft pick to the Jaguars' starting quarterback. Minshew appeared in 14 games and tossed 21 touchdowns to only six interceptions. The efficiency wasn't great (61 C%, 7.0 YPA, 19% off-target rate), but Minshew made up some ground with his legs, ranking fifth among QBs with 344 rushing yards. Following the Nick Foles trade to Chicago, Minshew is allbut locked in as the 2020 Jaguars' starter. New offensive coordinator Jay Gruden's resume, combined with Jacksonville's shaky defense, suggests Minshew will be throwing plenty. That's enough to make him a QB2 and deep sleeper.
