  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook misses practice    Fri May 24, 07:36 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Friday, May 24, because of general soreness. Head coach Doug Marrone said he expects Westbrook to practice next week.

Footballguys view: Westbrook has a chance to be the leading receiver again this year with Marqise Lee still recovering from a torn ACL. Nick Foles recruited Chris Conley to the team after the two spent time together on the Chiefs roster, so he could be competition, along with 2018 second-round pick DJ Chark and Keelan Cole, who seemed to fall out of favor last year.

  Jaguars | Solid line for Dede Westbrook    Thu Dec 6, 11:43 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook caught seven of his 10 targets for 88 yards and touchdown in a 30-9 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Westbrook's touchdown toe tap was a highly skilled play and he also took a huge hit to get his team into the red zone. His arrow is pointing up long term if the Jaguars can get a legitimate quarterback.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook working on routes    Sat Aug 11, 04:54 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook said Saturday, Aug. 11, that he is a better route runner in his second season in the NFL, and it is something he has been working on to improve. 'I was pretty much running by people (in college). When you've got defensive backs like (CB Jalen Ramsey) and (CB A.J. Bouye), you have to fine-tune your routes,' Westbrook said.

Footballguys view: Westbrook is an electric athlete with quickness and speed to get around defenders. If he becomes a better route runner then Westbrook could be the most dangerous receiver on the Jaguars roster. As it stands right now, Westbrook is third on the depth chart behind Marqise Lee and Keelan Cole.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook more comfortable in offense    Thu Aug 9, 11:30 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook's knowledge of the playbook this preseason has given him a comfort level, and he is making tough catches during training camp.

Footballguys view: With Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson gone, there's room for Westbrook to make a splash. He didn't do a ton in the seven games he played during his rookie season, but this could be a sign he might be in line for some targets. We're still not sold until we've seen some preseason action, and it seems like Fantasy GMs are also holding off on grabbing him as his ADP is currently at 67th receiver off the board.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook making some noise    Thu Aug 2, 10:13 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook continues to 'flash' during training camp, according to John Oehser of Jaguars.com.

Footballguys view: Blake Bortles gave Westbrook a lot of work on third down last season, and the then-rookie responded. The Jaguars receiving corps is in a state of flux this year, with Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson gone, and there is room for Westbrook to make some noise. His wide receiver ADP is hovering in the 60s right now, and we wouldn't kill ourselves to grab him earlier, but he's worth watching.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville's top four WRs set?    Thu Aug 2, 02:47 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WRs Marqise Lee, Donte Moncrief, Keelan Cole and DJ Chark are set atop the team's receiver depth chart with WR Dede Westbrook the front runner for the No. 5 spot, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco.

Footballguys view: The biggest question here is really what happens with Blake Bortles. While he had some really nice moments in 2017, his production continues to drop, though his completion percentage improved over previous numbers. How he goes will directly impact his receivers. Right now, even assumed No. 1 Marqise Lee is suffering from a mediocre ADP of 51st receiver overall. Now, Lee is battling a shoulder injury, but he has the ability to be higher. We just don't trust that he has the quarterback to throw him the ball. The wide receiver group is dragged down by the quarterback, and lacks the ability (in Lee's case) or the experience (in the case of DJ Chark) to overcome that in the way that Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson did for a time.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook moving around    Fri Jul 27, 08:20 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook lined up as an outside receiver as well as a slot receiver during practice Friday, July 27.

Footballguys view: Westbrook will need versatility to get on the field this year as probably the #4 or #5 receiver, although Donte Moncrief and Marqise Lee aren't known for their durability.

  Jaguars | Marqise Lee on his way out?    Wed Jan 24, 01:48 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent WR Marqise Lee is not expected to be re-signed, in the opinion of Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union. Halloran posits that the mostly likely case for Lee being re-signed is if WR Allen Robinson is not retained. Another possibility is that WR Allen Hurns could be released in order to create $7 million more in salary cap space. Lee could also be asked to take a pay cut. However, with WRs Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole contributing well, Lee may be the odd man out.

Footballguys view: Basically what this article is saying is that all things are possible when it comes to Lee and his future with the Jaguars. In a nutshell, if the Jaguars find a way to keep Robinson then Lee is the odd man out. If Robinson moves on, then the team could be more likely to keep Lee...or just move on from him with younger guys like Westbrook or Cole.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook has just one grab    Sun Jan 21, 07:11 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook managed just one reception for 29 yards on three targets in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 21.

Footballguys view: Westbrook has a bright future after a strong preseason and sometimes impactful second half of 2017. If Allen Robinson leaves in free agency, look for Westbrook to start. If he had kept his footing on his only reception, he might have scored a go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook mostly invisible    Sun Jan 14, 07:11 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook made just one catch for eight yards on three targets in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: Westbrook was a preseason sensation and his play in the second half of the year might have convinced the team to give him a go as a starter next year with Allen Robinson heading into free agency and Allen Hurns playing on an overpriced contract.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville makes roster moves    Sat Nov 18, 11:35 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Larry Pinkard was promoted from the practice squad Saturday, Nov. 18. The team also activated S Calvin Pryor and WR Dede Westbrook from the Reserve/Injured list. In corresponding move, the Jaguars waived DT Sheldon Day and WR Jaelen Strong and placed Arrelious Benn (knee) on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Old Dominion in 2015 (Packers), Pinkard is a speedy WR who can contribute as a return man if need be. Speaking of speedy, Westbrook is a dynamic rookie who can toy with defenders matched up against him. With Allen Hurns (ankle) banged up, Westbrook could split time with Keelan Cole opposite Marqise Lee.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook has huge expectations    Thu Nov 16, 10:44 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook said his expectation is for a 200-yard receiving game in his NFL debut in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Westbrook will be eased into the lineup this week, but he has displayed the playmaking ability to emerge as the #2 receiver in the Jaguars passing game and top deep threat. He's worth an add in all but short bench leagues.

  Jaguars | Little expected of Dede Westbrook in Week 11    Tue Nov 14, 08:11 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) is not going to be a big part of the team's game plan in Week 11 if he is activated in time from the Reserve/Injured list, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars are likely to ease Westbrook into the mix. He can do a lot with a little as Westbrook is a big play just waiting to happen. Westbrook has speed to burn, ankle-breaking agility and at attitude where he doesn't back down from any challenge. We like him in dynasty leagues, but are monitoring him in redraft leagues.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook set to make debut    Tue Nov 14, 01:03 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook will be ready to come back from the Reserve/Injured list this week, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

Footballguys view: Westbrook is an explosive player who can do a lot with a small number of targets. With Allen Hurns (ankle) banged up, the Jaguars need more depth at the position. Marqise Lee now moves up as the top target while Hurns is out, and Westbrook will compete with Keelan Cole for targets behind him.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook ready to play    Mon Nov 13, 04:02 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) is set to return in Week 11, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

Footballguys view: Expect Westbrook to get activated off Injured Reserve. The speedy rookie from Oklahoma can take the top off the defense in a hurry. There are shades of DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) when you think of Westbrook's skill set and perhaps NFL potential.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook still not added to roster    Sat Nov 11, 05:39 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) was not activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 11, and will not play in Week 10.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars have one more week to decide whether they will add Westbrook to their roster or keep him on the Reserve/Injured list for the rest of the season. He's a big play waiting to happen, and we appreciate the upside he could bring to the offense in Jacksonville.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook not activated    Sat Nov 4, 04:54 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) was not activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 4, and will not play in Week 9.

Footballguys view: Westbrook can make an instant impact for the Jagaurs passing game as a big-play specialist when healthy. The rookie WR from Oklahoma has burst, speed and the attitude to gash defenders regularly. Stash him in deep bench leagues if you can.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook expects to play    Fri Nov 3, 09:25 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) said he expects to be cleared to play against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 9, and QB Blake Bortles said it is 'extremely impressive' what Westbrook can do after the catch.

Footballguys view: Westbrook is a big play waiting to happen, but his status for this week is unknown. He should be close to returning, but there's no guarantee he'll be suiting up in Week 9.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook designated to return    Mon Oct 30, 05:24 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) has been designated as one of the players to return from the Reserve/Injured list this season.

Footballguys view: A move that was expected when Westbrook was initially put on the Reserved/Injured list. Westbrook is electric with the ball in his hands and gives the team another playmaker on offense. He'll work his way into the no3 WR position behind Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee. The Jaguars will have three weeks to add Westbrook to the 53-man roster.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook on the field Monday    Mon Oct 30, 03:45 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) participated in practice Monday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Westbrook should get activated by the Jaguars in the near future. They put him on Injured Reserve right before the start of the regular season with hopes he would be back. Westbrook is a big play waiting to happen, but he'll take some time to get up to speed in the Jaguars offense. Even when he is playing, the team isn't exactly pass-happy on offense and Westbrook will still be behind Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee in the pecking order.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook progressing    Fri Oct 20, 06:55 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) is eligible to come off the Reserve/Injured list after the bye, and he might see his first game action in Week 9 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Westbrook shouldn't be on any dynasty waiver wires, and he could have redraft value with the best deep speed to harness Blake Bortles ability in that part of the passing game, set up in play action by a revived running game led by Leonard Fournette.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook eyes Week 9 return    Sat Oct 7, 11:33 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) is eligible to practice Oct. 20 and can play in eight weeks, which would allow him to make his NFL debut against the Cincinnati Bengals on Nov. 5. Westbrook believes he will be ready to play by then.

Footballguys view: Westbrook is a big play waiting to happen with his speed, quickness and 'alpha' attitude as a receiver. We're not thrilled about the Jags passing game, but Westbrook might make for an interesting sleeper in PPR leagues or leagues that reward you for big plays. Think of him as a 'what the heck' flex when he returns.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook could return this season    Sat Sep 23, 03:00 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) is a candidate to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list later in the season, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Michael DiRocco.

Footballguys view: That was the plan when the team put him on Injured Reserve. They especially need him now with Allen Robinson (knee) done for the year. Westbrook is a speedy rookie who can get open in a hurry and is dangerous with the ball in his hands after the catch. He's first eligible to return in Week 9.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook has surgery    Wed Sep 13, 04:32 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) underwent core muscle surgery Tuesday, Sept. 12, according to a Jaguars' spokesman. A timeline for his recovery was not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Westbrook is on Injured Reserve right now but he could be one of the team's 'designated to return' players. With Allen Robinson (knee) out for the year, Westbrook would have a larger role than originally thought. The rookie is dangerous with the ball in his hands and can make crazy catches seem routine.

  Jaguars | Dede Westbrook placed on IR    Fri Sep 8, 05:05 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Sept. 8.

Footballguys view: Westbrook had a very promising preseason, but he won't be able to contribute until well into the season now. He's easier to stash in dynasty leagues with an IR slot now. Westbrook could start next year with Allen Hurns a potential cap cut and Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson free agents.
