Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 9 vs HOU (7 / 2 / 32 / 0 rec)
Much like Chark, Conley was essentially invisible against the Texans. He did make a nice first down conversion in the first half. Aside from that, he was hardly targeted in the game.
2019 Week 8 vs NYJ (7 / 4 / 103 / 1 rec)
Chris Conley had his second consecutive big game for the Jaguars, hauling in four of his seven targets for a career-high 103 yards and one touchdown. The vast majority of his yards came on a 70-yard touchdown, which saw him run a crossing route against cover 3. The Jets' linebackers bit downhill when Minshew stepped up in the pocket and gave Conley a wide-open space to catch the ball in, and he then showed off his tremendous speed as he simply outran the rest of the defenders for the longest touchdown of his career. He did drop a pass, but ultimately he provided a big-bodied target for Minshew to hit underneath and across the middle of the field.
2019 Week 7 vs CIN (8 / 3 / 83 / 0 rec)
Conley had an up and down game but ultimately his good plays outshined the bad ones. The negative plays came during two dropped passes, each accurate balls thrown to him on 3rd downs. The positives were three catches for 83 yards, including two massive receptions in one possession. The first catch came on a 4th quarter dig route where he gained separation and then broke the first tackle attempt before running for 47 yards to set Jacksonville up near Cincinnati's end zone. The second play came just a few moments later as he ran a slant out the slot on the Jaguars' two-point conversion attempt and caught a rocket from Minshew to give Jacksonville the extra points.
2019 Week 6 vs NO (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Chris Conley had another really quiet game, finishing with zero catches on three targets. Each of those targets came in the second half but he didn't have a great chance to grab any of them thanks to Minshew being off-target and one coverage play that should have been called defensive pass interference. Conley saw one-on-one man coverage throughout the game but simply did not separate enough for Minshew to look his way.
2019 Week 5 vs CAR (3 / 1 / 26 / 0 rec)
Conley was barely used as a pass catching target against the Panthers, with Westbrook and Chark commanding most of Minshew's attention. He did catch a third-down pass on the game's final drive and then picked up major yards after the catch to make it a 26-yard gain. Otherwise, he saw two targets on Hail Mary passes at the end of the game.
2019 Week 4 vs DEN (4 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)
Conley did not have a reception until the final drive of the game. After Dede Wesbtrook's Deep Out got the ball into field goal range for Lambo, Conley added another 10 yards or so of comfort by making a 10 yard grab on a Comeback route.
2019 Week 3 vs TEN (3 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)
Conley made the first reception of the game, picking up 15 yards on a Deep Out. He caught a nice slant pass early in the second half, picking up good yardage after the catch. Other than that, he was not involved in the offense.
2019 Week 2 vs HOU (5 / 4 / 73 / 0 rec)
Conley only saw five targets on Sunday but he largely made the most of them. He dropped one 3rd down pass on the offensive's final drive, but the good far outweighed the bad as he turned in a four catch, 73-yard performance. Conley's best play came on a 31-yard deep shot connection from Minshew, the offense's biggest gain of the day. He beat the defensive back on the release to gain separation and then battled physical coverage to not only catch the pass but also keep both feet in bounds. He has become a consistent contributor this far.
2019 Week 1 vs KC (7 / 6 / 97 / 1 rec)
Conley led the team in targets with seven, which he turned into six catches for 97 yards and a touchdown. After a quiet preseason he made the most of his starter reps on Sunday and provided a safety blanket for both Foles and Minshew, showing the ability to become the team's possessions receiver who they hope can move the chains. This was evident on his 3rd-and-18 catch in the first quarter, as he shielded himself and the ball away from the defender to ensure a first down for Jacksonville.
Latest NewsJaguars | Bigger role for Chris Conley? (Sat Nov 9, 11:38 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Chris Conley should see his targets increase now that QB Nick Foles is starting, according to Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com, and DiRocco said Foles was 'clearly more comfortable' throwing to Conley than other receivers during offseason activities. Our View: Conley was a dud in a matchup that was set up for big numbers against Houston in Week 9, but the Jaguars have a very favorable pass defense schedule left, so he could have value down the stretch.
link to story Jaguars | Chris Conley quiet in Week 9 (Sun Nov 3, 02:13 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Chris Conley caught two passes for 32 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 9. He was targeted seven times during the game. Our View: Conley was a dud in a moment when many looked to him to continue his hot streak against a generous pass defense. He'll be an easy drop during his bye if you added him as a spot start.
