Jags could bench Gardner Minshew as early as Week 7

The Jacksonville Jaguars could consider benching quarterback Gardner Minshew as early as Week 7, per the NFL's Ian Rapoport.

What It Means:

The Jags are sitting at 1-5 heading into Week 7, with their Week 1 victory over the Indianapolis Colts looking more and more like a fluke with each consecutive loss. Minshew himself hasn't been entirely to blame for their current record (he ranks near the middle of the pack in most quarterback statistics), but the team has failed to score more than 16 points in half of its contests this season. Still, we know what Mike Glennon (his presumed backup) can do, so benching Minshew isn't likely to spur an offensive turnaround.

Minshew will face an uphill battle this week against a Los Angeles Chargers defensive front boasting Joey Bosa and a healthy Melvin Ingram. Still, our models expect the sophomore quarterback to score 19.5 fantasy points at a $7,200 salary on FanDuel in Week 7.
