- Jaguars rookie QB Gardner Minshew II has taken the NFL by storm.
- Minshew wears wonderful outfits, has a cool mustache, and can also be apparently an professional fantasy soccer participant.
- Regardless of taking part in nicely, although, nobody owns Minshew but in his personal fantasy soccer league.
Gardner Minshew II has rather a lot going for him proper now. Since taking the reigns of the Jacksonville Jaguars, he is helped hold the group afloat with a 2-Three document after beginning QB Nick Foles went down with an damage. He is earned reward for his awesome mustache, cool outfits, and usually swagger-filled demeanor. And as we have now discovered, he isn’t half dangerous at Fantasy Soccer both—although he is not even owned yet in his personal league.
Minshew performs in some type of dynasty league, the place he and his leaguemates, from the sound of it, can select how a lot of their group they need to let go and begin over with at first of the yr. As Tre Polk, a good friend of Minshew’s from Mississippi (the place he is from) says, the QB mainly did re-did his entire group from scratch, and obtained early season studs like Josh Jacobs, Austin Ekeler, and New England’s protection off the scrap heap. However even he did not know sufficient to draft himself.
“That is the factor,” Polk told ESPN. “I hold ready for him to choose himself up, however nobody took him. Gardner Minshew is on the market in Gardner Minshew’s fantasy league.”
Polk says that Minshew really did draft a rookie QB—simply not himself. “Gardner really took Kyler Murray,” he stated.
Minshew was a sixth-round decide on this yr’s draft, and regardless of taking part in for Mike Leach—a significant school soccer character—at Washington State, it nonetheless felt like he is considerably come out of nowhere. However he is been a revelation up to now for the Jaguars, even main some to marvel if maybe he could retain that job even once Foles heals from his damage. That is still to be seen, but when Minshew is wherever close to nearly as good at taking part in actual soccer as he’s at selecting a group for pretend soccer, nicely, the choice will most likely find yourself making itself.
