Draft note
by John Paulsen
Westbrook has averaged 4.0-46-0.26 in 23 games through his first two seasons. T.J. Hernandez noted, “The addition of Nick Foles should give the Jaguars’ offense a giant boost, especially in the passing game. Foles likes to throw short and in the middle of the field, a strength that matches up perfectly with Westbrook’s game as Jacksonville’s primary slot man.” Beat writer Daniel Popper said that Westbrook “is most likely to put up eye-popping numbers.” Foles reportedly took a shine to Chris Conley, and Marqise Lee could push Westbrook for targets if he can get healthy, but Westbrook is the safest pick of the bunch.

JAX WR Dede Westbrook - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
According to Fansided.com's David Levin, despite the Jaguars adding depth at wide receiver and making changes at the tight end position, Dede Westbrook is still the team's top vertical threat. Jacksonville added Chris Conley in free agency, and they're banking on the eventual return of Marqise Lee, but if the Jaguars are going to get better in the passing game, Westbrook is going to be the leader of the pack. Levin believes it's Westbrook's versatility that should have new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo the most optimistic about the upcoming season. The good news, as CBSSports.com noted, DeFilippo actually wants to throw the football. More importantly, new QB Nick Foles is actually capable of doing exactly that. ESPN's Mike Clay notes that Westbrook handled a 22% target share as a rookie and a 21% share in 2018. Overall, he's averaged 6.4 targets per game.

Fantasy Downside
The downside is pretty obvious here: Even with Foles and DeFilippo on board, the Jaguars want to be a run-first, run-heavy offense. That's not going to change significantly even if they're more effective with the passes they do throw.

2019 Bottom Line
So how does all this jive with our ranking just outside the WR3 tier? It's all about the role. As ESPN's Matthew Berry pointed out, over the past two seasons (playoffs included), Foles has completed 70.1 percent of his slot passes with three times as many TDs as interceptions. Berry believes this should bode well for Westbrook, who was fourth in the NFL in targets from the slot last season and eighth in yards from the slot. It's a fair expectation.
