Gardner Minshew, who is the backup quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars, is currently tied for first in his fantasy football league with high school friends.
What’s interesting about this is that he’s doing this without having Gardner Minshew on his team, according to ESPN. Nobody in his fantasy football league actually owns him. Minshew owns quarterback Kyler Murray, who has 101 points to Minshew’s 91.
“I keep waiting for him to pick himself up, but no one took him,” Tre Polk, Minshew’s friend from Brandon, Miss., told Borden. “Gardner Minshew is available in Gardner Minshew’s fantasy league.”
“It was ridiculous,” Polk says. “He must have known something about Melvin Gordon, and he worked out with Josh Jacobs and liked what he saw so he took him, and he took the Patriots defense, and he grabbed Austin Ekeler …” Polk goes on for a few minutes like this before putting on the bow. “Bottom line: He redrafted, like, his whole team, and he’s tied for first place. He just sees the game in a different way.”
