Jacksonville Jaguars: Most disappointing, surprising
February 13, 2018
By STATS LLC Editorial
MOST DISAPPOINTING PLAYER: Wide receiver Marqise Lee. When Allen Robinson went down with a torn ACL in the team's first series of the season opener, it gave Lee a chance to show that he could be a team's No. 1 receiver. Playing in his contract year, Lee failed to show he's worthy of a big extension. He missed two games due to injuries and had five other games in which he caught two or fewer passes. He never had a 100-yard game, topping out at 86 yards. He started out as the team's top punt returner, but lost that job when he had five returns for 13 yards in the team's first four games. A mediocre season will very likely send Lee looking for a new team in 2018.
MOST SURPRISING PLAYER: Blake Bortles. The fourth-year quarterback went from a five-interception performance in one training camp practice and having to win back an open competition for the starting job, to finishing with his most efficient season. In Bortles' first five games, he had just two outings where he passed for more than 140 yards and had three games with a passer rating of less than 65. But he was a different player for most of the next 11 regular-season games and the three playoff games. He passed for more than 240 yards in 10 of the 14 games and finished with over a 60 percent completion mark for the first time. He had 11 games where he did not throw an interception and the Jaguars won 10 with the one loss in the AFC Championship Game. His leadership and command of the offense was better than any of the previous three seasons.
