ALL-RISK TEAM: Cardinals' backfield full of boom-or-bust fantasy potential

“Free beer, that's what this country was built on, I'm pretty sure,” Minshew told USA TODAY Sports. "Fantasy football, and really just engagement with fans this year is so important because with everything going on, I think football can be a great outlet for people. I think it's going to be a really fun way with all of us to connect."

While Minshew put up solid numbers in his rookie season, when he claimed the starting quarterback role for the Jaguars, it might be a risky move to invest a first-round selection on the 24-year-old. Based on their usage, running backs like Christian McCaffrey of the Panthers, Ezekiel Elliott of the Cowboys and Saquon Barkley of the Giants are typically favored in leagues. High-volume receivers like Michael Thomas of the Saints, DeAndre Hopkins of the Cardinals and Julio Jones of the Falcons typically follow.

Within ESPN's fantasy football leagues, Minshew is getting selected with an average draft position of 168. By comparison, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is being picked at an average position of 15.6, while reigning league-MVP Lamar Jackson of the Ravens is coming off the board at 16.9.

In 14 games last season, Minshew completed 60.6% of his passes for 3,271 yards and 21 touchdowns with six interceptions. On the ground, Minshew also ran the ball 67 times for 344 yards.

Minshew said he has had a fantasy league running for about seven years, since he was in high school. He said he picked himself up for a couple of games, but then played poorly. He lost both in the NFL and in fantasy football.

"That was just too much to take," Minshew joked. "I really don't think I can put myself through it again."
