Kansas City Chiefs QB Chad Henne said he is ready to embrace a 'mentor role' and help QB Patrick Mahomes.
Huddle Up: Mahomes is unproven, but he will have plenty of weapons to throw to as he begins his first year as a starter. He will be an upside-QB2 in 2018.

Jacksonville Jaguars QBs Chad Henne and Blake Bortles could play in the final preseason game, according to head coach Doug Marrone. Marrone said he has no timetable for naming a starting quarterback.
Huddle Up: Bortles went 12-for-16 for 125 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the third preseason game, while Henne went 8-for-14 for 73 yards. The Jaguars may not name a start until right before Week 1, but owners in all leagues should pass on both quarterbacks.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne will be the starting quarterback for the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Aug. 24. QB Blake Bortles is also expected to receive some playing time with the first-team offense during the game.
Huddle Up: Henne may now be the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job since he is starting the most important preseason game. Owners should avoid the Jaguars quarterback situation in their drafts no matter if Henne or Bortles starts.

Jacksonville Jaguars QBs Blake Bortles and Chad Henne received an equal amount of snaps with the first-team offense during practice Monday, Aug. 21. Head coach Doug Marrone is not ready to name a starter for the third preseason game and wants to see them practice Tuesday, Aug. 22, before making a decision.
Huddle Up: Bortles has struggled during training camp and preseason, which has given Henne a chance to win the starting job. The Jaguars have a good set of receivers on the roster, but owners should stay away from the team's quarterback situation in fantasy leagues.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said QB Blake Bortles has to earn the starting quarterback job and indicated QB Chad Henne has a chance to take the job. Marrone said he is looking for the best person to lead the offense.
Huddle Up: Bortles struggled last season and is having problems during the preseason, so he may have to play well in the third preseason if he wants to start Week 1. Owners can monitor the situation over the next few weeks, but neither Bortles nor Henne is a great option in fantasy leagues.

The Jacksonville Jaguars re-signed backup QB Chad Henne to a two-year, $8 million deal Thursday, Feb. 18, that includes playing time-related incentives.
Huddle Up: Henne will return for at least a fifth straight season with the Jags, but Blake Bortles is more entrenched than ever as the starter coming off his breakout season a year ago.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne is still the starting quarterback for now, according to head coach Gus Bradley.
Huddle Up: No Jaguar offensive player has much fantasy value as long as Henne is the starting quarterback and the offensive line is in shambles. It's that simple.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne will start the Week 1 game ahead of rookie QB Blake Bortles, head coach Gus Bradley said Friday, Aug. 22.
Huddle Up: The plan all along was to start Henne but you have to question this decision with the way Bortles has played. A couple of years ago it was Matt Flynn who was supposed to start in Seattle but Russell Wilson beat him out. It's not that Henne has played poorly this preseason but after watching both quarterbacks, it's hard to believe he gives Jacksonville a better chance to win than Bortles. The rookie will be under center at some point this season. Bortles should be targeted early in dynasty leagues.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne will start in the team's Week 1 game, according to head coach Gus Bradley.
Huddle Up: Lost in the excitement over first-round pick Blake Bortles' strong preseason, is that Henne has had a productive one as well, and at this point, Bradley is simply saying that the veteran incumbent has done nothing to lose his job. But will Henne hold on to it all season? The guess here would be no, although much depends on how the Jags are faring as a team.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne is the team's starting quarterback, head coach Gus Bradley reiterated Saturday, Aug. 9.
Huddle Up: Rookie Blake Bortles had a strong performance Friday night but Henne is entrenched as Jacksonville's starter. There's a good chance Bortles starts at some point during the 2014 season, but it won't be in Week 1.
