fantasy football Profile Blake Bortles
The Facts: Following up on the ongoing story. ... Bortles underwent surgery on his right wrist four weeks ago, but it appears to be healing just fine. In fact, Bortles said he already has started throwing. “It has been a day over four weeks,” he said. “I threw Monday, Wednesday and Friday of last week in a limited capacity, and I will continue that program through the six-week mark, and then I should be good to go and 100 percent.”
Diehards Line: Bortles, who signed a three-year extension earlier this evening, has battled the wrist issue since December 2016, appearing on the injury report every week in 2017. Bortles, though, never appeared on the team’s status report and played 97.96 of the offensive snaps. Bortles relied on cortisone shots to get him through the season. “I think I got three cortisone shots and a [platelet rich plasma] shot,” Bortles said. “The PRP shot didn’t do anything at all and by the third cortisone shot they were starting to last less and less, so by the end of it they didn’t want to do anymore cortisone shots. Let’s make it through the season and get it fixed and get it right after the year.” He went into more detail in Saturday's statement: "I had a partially torn ligament on the outside, which he repaired and then on the inside or right on top was inflamed and he cleaned up," Bortles said. "It was a scope or more of a cleanup type of procedure and four-to-six weeks is what he said [for the rehab]. ..." The Jaguars don't appear to be worried about it and the fact that Bortles is already throwing is a reason why.

Tarik Cohen Thinks He Can Handle A Tyreek Hill Role For Nagy Saturday, February 24, 2018 | Time: 11:05 PT | Reported by NFL.com
fantasy football Profile Tarik Cohen
The Facts: How does Cohen follow up his dynamic rookie season? Emulating Tyreek Hill is a good first step. Cohen explained this week that, with former Chiefs OC Matt Nagy now at the helm in the Windy City, he expects and wants to inherit the role Hill played for Nagy in K.C. "When I was at the combine, coaches would always ask me who I would compare myself to in the league," Cohen said, "and I would always tell them Tyreek Hill. I feel that I can do the same kinds of things he does in the Kansas City offense."
Diehards Line: So how do they compare? As NFL.com notes, both are undersized speed threats -- Cohen more so at 5-6 -- with dual- or even triple-threat capabilities on offense and special prowess in the return game. In Cohen's rookie season, he accounted for five total touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving, one returning and one passing) and amassed 723 yards from scrimmage. The Bears back averaged 9.4 yards per punt return and 22.4 yards per kick return and electrified football fans with his reverse-field return TD against San Francisco. Hill has racked up 20 touchdowns so far, including 12 in his rookie campaign when he earned All-Pro honors. After splitting time as a receiver and runner in his first season, Hill developed into a full-time wideout under Nagy in 2017, hauling in 75 passes on 105 targets for 1,183 yards -- a 15.8 yards per reception clip. Might Cohen see a similar uptick in receiving targets in his sophomore season, as Hill did? Well. ... Cohen saw 71 targets last season, while bell-cow back Jordan Howard had just 32. It'll be interesting to watch what direction this takes when the Bears begin OTAs later this spring.
