Jake Luton 2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Probably time to at least start talking about him. spacer.png

  • Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said he plans to make changes coming out of the team's Week 8 bye.

    "I'm going to look at some things, I want to go a little outside the box," said Marrone. "I'm going to go after it and however it falls, it falls, but it's open for me. I've done crazy [stuff] before." ESPN's Michael DiRocco believes benching Gardner Minshew "certainly could be on the table." The Jaguars are winless in six straight games and desperate for a spark. Sixth-round QB Jake Luton — who threw for 2,714 yards with a 28:3 TD/INT ratio at Oregon State last year — could potentially take over for Minshew after Jacksonville's bye.

  • Jaguars selected Oregon State QB Jake Luton with the No. 189 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

    Luton (6'6/224) started in 20 of 23 career games for the Beavers, joining Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Fields as one of only three FBS quarterbacks with 21-plus touchdown passes and three or fewer interceptions in 2019. While Luton's gangly frame includes large hands (10 3/8") and sufficient mobility to extend plays outside the pocket, he peaked with 7.6 yards per attempt in coach Jonathan Smith’s pro-style offense due to his conservative nature as a game manager and checkdown artist. Luton shows the willingness to stand behind the line of scrimmage and take shots, but he completed just 35.8 percent of his passes under pressure in three years at Oregon State (via Pro Football Focus). His medicals will be crucial after suffering a thoracic spine fracture in September 2017 and missing the final game of his college career with a forearm injury last November. A 24-year-old prospect who seemingly prevents explosive plays, Luton projects to be fighting for his life on an active roster throughout his career.

It would appear RW has employed Jake's uncle for blurb writing:

Sports Illustrated's John Shipley expects Jake Luton to start Week 9 against the Texans.

The Jaguars have yet to rule out Gardner Minshew (thumb), but the signs point to them making a change. Minshew was already at risk of getting benched before his injury. Jacksonville likely wants to see what they have in Luton — the most efficient quarterback in the Pac-12 last year. Luton (6'6/224) has prototype size and could open up the offense more than Minshew (6.9 YPA). Jacksonville turning to Luton would potentially be a boost to D.J. Chark's value.

Let the Luton to Chark connection begin! Throw the ball 40 times a game jacksonville... who needs to run the ball when your down by 3 touchdowns going into halftime every game anyway

Looks like Jake Lutton has a shot. spacer.png

  • NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew is expected to be inactive for Week 9 against the Texans.

    One of Mike Glennon or Jake Lutton will draw the start next week. Rapoport noted that both passers have looked better than Minshew in practice at certain points. Minshew is dealing with a thumb fracture and strained ligament but his Week 9 status could also be the result of his middling play. Minshew is averaging 6.9 yards per attempt and hasn't led Jacksonville to a win since Week 1. Lutton, a sixth-round rookie, could get the start so the Jaguars can see if he has any long-term potential.

Grab the Houston D now while they're still on bye before the MNF game starts.

Good luck to Luton but really the Jaguars troubles were more about trading away or losing most of their defense. Can’t win games when losing the likes of Ramsey, Campbell plus a stack of others on that side of the ball. Talk about making Minshew a scapegoat when really the defence is giving up 31.4 points per game. That’s more the reason for 6 losses in a row than a 6th round quarterback playing better than nearly half the starters in the league including quite a few rd 1 guys like Goff etc.

Lutton apparently has a killer speed ball:

The Jaguars are expected to “throw downfield more” with Jake Luton.

Jaguars.com's John Oehser notes Luton “has a better arm” than Gardner Minshew and “looked good enough in training camp to make you believe there's a chance he could play well.” Luton’s 85th percentile throw velocity was behind only Jacob Eason and Steven Montez in this year’s class, and he rarely turns it over, posting a career 42:11 TD/INT ratio in 20 Pac-12 starts The Jaguars still seem likely to go run heavy in his debut, but there’s some big play upside to Luton as a DFS punt against a Texans secondary that’s allowed the fourth most passing touchdowns in the league.

with stafford news, going with luton in hopes he can pull off minshew magic and explode on the scene. texans d is beatable and he got weapons in robinson and chark so he can do decent. nothing to lose.

Still don't trust that D.

Watch Robinson and this QB light it up (and anyone who started HOU tear their hair out).

[...] Chark is a monster! if Luton can throw downfield catchable passes, i feel like Chark will finally eat. Its probably asking for to much, but if this guy can air it out anything remotely close to Herbert.... That'd be great!

Last time they played them, 4 weeks ago with Minshew at the helm, Texans got 4 sacks and 2 fumble rec's for 9 fan pts.  You think the rook isn't gonna throw at least 1 pick?  It's not about trusting the D or not, it's about not trusting a rookie 6th rounder making his debut mid-season.  How did Dinucci do last week?  Jax is not much better than Dallas tbh.

Philly D >>>>>>> Texans D

Dinucci <<<<<< Me 

Love the matchup on paper. But outside of JJ Watt, Houston is a joke.

I agree that Hou isn't great at all, but I still like the chances of their D producing fantasy pts vs Luton this week.
