After letting Allen Robinson walk and re-signing Marqise Lee, the Jacksonville Jaguars are bringing Donte Moncrief into the fold.

Fantasy Impact:

Following a somewhat breakout season in 2015, when he caught 64 passes for 733 yards and six touchdowns, Moncrief has been pretty quiet the last two seasons. He did score seven touchdowns in only nine games in 2016, but he caught only 26 passes last season without Andrew Luck. He will join a crowded WR depth chart in Jacksonville.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Lee led the Jags in targets (96) last season and is the favorite to do the same in 2018, especially after re-signing in March on a four-year, $34 million contract that includes $16.5 million guaranteed. Lee moved to the forefront after Allen Robinson tore his ACL in Week 1. As Bleacher Report notes, coaches moved Lee all over the field and he proved to be very successful over the middle of the field and on inside-breaking routes from the outside. B/R went on to point out that while drops were an issue at times, Lee went through a stretch of games where he caught everything and saw contested balls at a high rate due to Blake Bortles' ball placement.

Fantasy Downside

The Jaguars selected D.J. Chark at No. 61 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, adding another body to the wideout group that already included Lee, Donte Moncrief, Dede Westbrook, and Keelan Cole. This after Robinson and Allen Hurns departed (Robinson as an unrestricted free agent; Hurns was released). So there's no denying Lee will have serious competition for Bortles' attention in a run-heavy offense, as the team also made a significant investment in Moncrief and now has the trio of promising young receivers. Furthermore, the Jaguars signed Austin Seferian-Jenkins to replace Marcedes Lewis as the starting tight end, hinting at a desire to get more out of the position in the passing game.

2018 Bottom Line

Given the number of mouths looking to be fed and the above-mentioned concerns about the team's desire to lean on Leonard Fournette and the rushing attack, Lee's already-established chemistry with Bortles will be important. Remember: They have the longest quarterback-to-receiver connection on the team. That should be enough to keep Lee fantasy relevant.
