Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 20 vs NE (3 / 2 / 37 / 0 rec)
Cole had a long reception on a third and eight conversion in the first half, but the drive led to no points, and a first down conversion on the team's first touchdown drive to get into field goal range. He wasn't targeted again until the fourth quarter on an unsuccessful short pass on third and long.
2017 Week 19 vs PIT (2 / 1 / 45 / 0 rec)
Cole was ignored for the majority of the game, but he continued the trend of the Jaguars entire season and became the lone recipient of one of their downfield shots. After Bortles had missed deep pass after deep pass, he connected with Cole to put the team at the goal-line. Cole ran a great vertical route down the seam, splitting two zone defenders, and came back to the ball to secure it. He showed great ball skills and vertical ability.
2017 Week 18 vs BUF (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Cole saw one target on the game and it was not an accurate pass. He couldn't make a play because of the quarterback play.
2017 Week 17 vs TEN (8 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec)
Cole was sent on vertical route after vertical route on Sunday, but it was all to no avail due to the below-average quarterback play. Cole was second on the team in targets but most of them were simply never near him. He was able to turn his few catchable targets into solid gains thanks to his quickness after the catch. He did hurt the offense himself though, fumbling away a pass before the end of the first half which would lead to a Titans' field goal.
2017 Week 16 vs SF (13 / 6 / 108 / 0 rec)
Cole had his fourth consecutive 100-yard game thanks to several big plays made as a deep threat. He got himself into penalty trouble on several plays but was targeted 13 times on the day, showing the trust that the QB and staff have in him. His best play came on a go route in the third quarter. He was able to use his quickness off the line to create separation and then used a burst of acceleration to catch up to the ball.
2017 Week 15 vs HOU (9 / 7 / 186 / 1 rec)
Cole dominated the Texans secondary with complete ease. He caught every deep target that came his way, a vast improvement from earlier in the season. He shows the vertical speed to beat defensive backs on go routes as well as the awareness and quickness to get consistent separation across the middle. He stepped up into the teams role for Marqise Lee once Lee went out of the game, and was even more productive than Lee has been. His touchdown, his third week in a row with a score, was due to excellent route running and a good release.
2017 Week 14 vs SEA (3 / 3 / 99 / 1 rec)
Cole only had a handful of catches but he had the biggest play of the game, and the year, for the Jaguars offense. Matched up with a linebacker, Cole ran a post and torched the linebacker down the field, showing the deep speed he has shown all season. Bortles lead him with the pass and, though he had to reach out for it, he was able to secure the deep pass, which has been his Achilles heel this season. He then outran the rest of the Seattle defense for the score. He shows terrific quickness from the slot and has truly improved every week.
2017 Week 13 vs IND (3 / 3 / 49 / 1 rec)
Cole scored the first touchdown of his career on Sunday. He got separation on a fade route and was able to climb the ladder and find the ball in the air for the score. He did a much better job on Sunday of fighting for the ball and keeping his concentration through contact, which was the source of most of his previous drops. He shows promise due to his quickness and vision after the catch and his ability to get open deep.
2017 Week 12 vs ARI (7 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)
Cole was the target on a number of deep routes but none of them connected, a theme with him and Bortles. They lack any chemistry if the throw is not a quick hitting one. Cole does show good speed and value as a runner after the catch but he can not make the tough catches that Bortles' passes are requiring him to.
2017 Week 11 vs CLE (6 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)
Cole got a first down on the first drive of the game, thanks to his ability to pick up yards after the catch. He is used as the Jaguars intermediate wideout, especially with Allen Hurns hurt, but Bortles did not look his way very often on Sunday.
2017 Week 10 vs LAC (8 / 3 / 61 / 0 rec)
Cole has become more integrated into the Jaguars offense each week. He has officially become their go-to deep option. He does not catch everyone as his catch radius is small, but he is fast enough to get a step on defenses and has become better at tracking the deep ball.
2017 Week 7 vs IND (3 / 2 / 64 / 0 rec)
Cole didn't do much but he made an amazing catch on a poorly thrown Bortles deep pass, after running an amazing post route, losing the DB on a double move.
2017 Week 2 vs TEN (3 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Cole got starters snaps due to Allen Robinson's absence. He saw a view targets via slants and short crossing routes but he didn't do anything notable. Frankly the most notable thing he did this week was not drop a pass, as he had dropped a pass in nearly every other one of his outings, both preseason and week 1 last week. He's an inconsistent target on an anemic passing offense.
