From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Lee is going to lead this team in targets. That's of dubious value when the Jags running game and defense control the script, but it can have value in PPR leagues when they don't. This week vs. the Ravens might be more of the former, but Lee is worth holding in PPR leagues for matchups that appears primed for Blake Bortles garbage time.

Week 3: vs Baltimore Ravens

All WR vs BAL

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Jaguars passing game has been downright atrocious thus far. That's no big surprise when we recall Blake Bortles' 2016 flameout and nightmarish offseason, which saw him briefly benched for Chad Henne, one of the league's worst backups. But the team has now lost all trust in his abilities, so his inefficiency and turnover-prone play is now seen only in short bursts as offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett aims to keep the ball out of his hands. Bortles has attempted just 55 passes through 2 games, a low number that's actually inflated by Week 2 garbage time. He's created an average of just 6.32 yards on those throws - 5.28 over the first 2 quarters - while throwing 2 interceptions along the way. A switch to Henne seems right around the corner, considering Bortles' ineffectiveness and $19 million injury guarantee. Neither passer inspires any confidence, especially with Allen Robinson sidelined. Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee are solid complements, but neither threatens a defense enough to open things up underneath for Bortles and the run game. This passing game remains a quarterback away from anything truly dynamic. The Ravens pass defense has drawn mixed reviews thus far, but their numbers have been great, albeit against two dysfunctional passing games. They've smothered both Andy Dalton (52% completion rate, 4 interceptions, 6 sacks) and DeShone Kizer (48%, 3 and 3) with dominant pass rushes, forcing thoroughly ineffective play, so they obviously deserve the benefit of the doubt. Baltimore is pushing the pocket fantastically, allowing Terrell Suggs and the underrated line to live in opposing backfields. Again, we have to note the competition, and the occasional lapses in coverage by the inconsistent secondary. Kizer in particular managed to create big, if isolated, plays down the field, hitting on 6 completions of 20 yards or more. But it's a fair assumption the pass rush will force errant throws, and without an obvious Jacksonville playmaker to alter their assignments, they'll keep Blake Bortles' impact low or negative.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs TEN (12 / 7 / 76 / 0 rec)

Lee dropped a 3rd down pass early in the 1st quarter but from that point he was a consistent piece of the offense. He was maybe the only consistent piece of the offense, as Bortles was rarely able to get the ball to him but he made things happen when he did. He won only on short crossing routes and slants but he was able to gain YAC consistently.

2017 Week 1 vs HOU (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Lee did nothing of note but he was the WR that received the few down the field opportunities that the Jaguars utilized after Robinson was injured. He had one poor drop that should've lead to a first down, but other than that it wasn't a day of note for Lee, or the passing offense.

Jaguars | Marqise Lee targeted 12 times (Sun Sep 17, 08:29 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee finished with seven receptions and 76 yards on a game-high 12 targets in Week 2 against the Titans.

Our View: Lee was the favorite target of Blake Bortles, but that was only worth something for fantasy because it was padded by garbage time. He's still not even a priority pickup.
