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.

Not listed as starter
QBJacksonville Jaguars
January 4, 2020
Minshew won't enter the 2020 offseason as the Jaguars' starting quarterback, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
ANALYSIS
This shouldn't come as a major surprise after Minshew's inconsistencies to end the season. Save for a sterling Week 17 finale in which the rookie quarterback completed close to 70 percent of his passes and threw for almost 300 yards and three touchdowns, a dismal stretch to start December nearly curtailed any sort of positive momentum Minshew built up during his prolonged audition as the Jaguars starter. It's worth noting head coach Doug Marrone also declined to list Nick Foles as the starter, suggesting both players would be capable options next season, although the Jaguars would pay close to $34 million in dead cap space should they opt to cut the veteran signal caller in lieu of Minshew. As a result, this situation feels like one of the very few "real" quarterback competitions to monitor throughout the offseason, as Minshew's cap number ($632,904) and surprise performance from the sixth-round pick throughout most of 2019 all but guarantee him a shot at the starting gig next year.
