Jaguars Beat: WR Dede Westbrook playing way into top-3 WR spot

Tuesday, August 14, 2018, 3:15pm

Jaguars.com - [Full Article]

Second-year wide receiver Dede Westbrook may be playing his way into a spot among the top three receivers. Despite being a key player during the last half of last season and postseason, Westbrook entering training camp seemed in a position of needing to earn his way into significant repetitions.

Donte Moncrief and Marqise Lee were running with the first team at receiver, and second-year veteran Keelan Cole was getting extensive first-team repetitions.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said as of late, Westbrook is standing out nearly every day and QB Blake Bortles seems to be going his way more as well. The piece added Westbrook feels he's improved as a route runner, while Bortles said Westbrook has grasped the offense better.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

With Jacksonville shipping its top two receivers away during the offseason—Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns—Moncrief, who signed a one-year, $9.6 million fully-guaranteed contract with the Jaguars, has a golden opportunity to be productive. As NFL.com's Nate Burleson noted, Moncrief is "a tall wideout who loves going over the top of defenses." How big an opportunity? Moncrief, who when healthy has a skill set similar to Robinson's, is expected to line up as the starter opposite Marqise Lee with Keelan Cole as the third receiver.

Fantasy Downside

Moncrief battled injuries throughout his time in Indianapolis, so he must avoid those issues in Jacksonville. Beyond that, he's a little behind the curve in terms of chemistry with Blake Bortles, but reports early from training camp say that's trending in the right direction.

2018 Bottom Line

Considering Moncrief will be the man lined up opposite Lee in two-receiver sets, it's hard to argue with Burleson's contention that the former Colt is well-positioned to get some looks. The best news for fantasy managers interested is that Moncrief’s ADP doesn’t reflect that opportunity in early August.
