2019 Fantasy Outlook
Minshew transferred to Washington State for his final collegiate season and proceeded to finish top-two in the country in passing yards, completions, attempts and completion percentage. The 23-year-old totaled 4,779 yards with 38 touchdowns and nine interceptions. A sixth-round pick in April's draft, Minshew somehow finds himself in the position to potentially earn the backup job in his rookie season in Jacksonville. Last year's quarterbacks Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler have been jettisoned, leaving 2018 sixth-round pick Tanner Lee and Minshew to battle for backup duties behind new starter Nick Foles. Lee made his way to the active roster for the season finale and should have a small leg up on the newcomer, but Minshew should have every opportunity in training camp to prove he's the better No. 2 option.

Minshew completed 14 of 29 pass attempts for 163 yards, and threw one interception during Sunday's 13-6 loss to New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
The Vegas pundits were evidently drinking the proverbial Kool-Aid on "Minshew Mania," as the Jaguars entered Sunday's tilt against the 4-1 Saints as one-to-two-point favorites in many sportsbooks. Minshew has regressed to the mean after a red-hot start to the season, completing less than 60 percent of his passes in three consecutive games after establishing a 73.9 percent completion rate between Weeks 1 and 3. His 9:2 TD:INT ratio is impressive, but the rookie signal-caller entered Sunday tied with Kyle Allen for an NFL-worst four lost fumbles. That is one aspect that Minshew will need to clean up in order to give the 2-4 Jaguars a chance to creep back into the playoff mix. In Week 7 he and the Jacksonville passing attack will be opposing a Bengals defense that has allowed 235-plus passing yards in five straight outings.
