From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 16): Westbrook had a long catch called back by a questionable penalty but was otherwise quiet vs. Houston. He's not an essential hold.

Week 3: vs Tennessee Titans

All WR vs TEN

FBG says: Tough matchup. Gardner Minshew held his own through his second NFL game, completing 70 percent of his passes for 213 yards and a touchdown. He played very poorly through the first half of last week's game, but he improved during the second half to bring the Jaguars within a few feet of a victory. He still has plenty of room for improvement, though, as Minshew held on to the ball far too long while making a few terrible throws that could have otherwise been big plays. D.J. Chark was his favorite target this week and hauled in the only touchdown of the game for Jacksonville. Chark has started hot this season with 11 receptions for 201 yards and two touchdowns, but he was listed on the injury report with an ankle issue. While he is tentatively expected to play on Thursday, keep an eye on his status leading into game time. Both Chris Conley was also on that injury report and could be at risk of sitting Thursday, but as of now, he is expected to play. Conley has had a solid start with Minshew under center with 12 target netting out to 10 receptions for 170 yards and a touchdown. Dede Westbrook, on the other hand, hasn't had a great connection with Minshew to start. He managed to catch just one-of-five targets for three yards last week--this coming after amassing just 30 yards with a touchdown in Week 1. Leonard Fournette has seen a consistent workload through the air though, seeing six targets in each game while hauling in a total of eight receptions for 68 yards to start this season. The Titans defense had another strong showing against the Colts last week as this secondary continues to impress with their playmaking abilities. The Titans have allowed the second-fewest passing yards per game (182.5) and have forced a league-leading (tied) five turnovers, four of which are interceptions. Logan Ryan has two of those interceptions while also ranking tied for fourth in the league with four passes defended and notching 1.5 sacks to bolster his early-season resume. He has looked like the best cornerback for the Titans and will give slot receiver Dede Westbrook a hard time this week. The other Jaguars wide receivers will also be in for challenges against this Titans secondary, particularly given the strong support coming from these safeties. The Titans pass rush has also been above average with strong showings from the veteran defensive end Cameron Wake and linebacker Jayon Brown. The Jaguars offensive line will have its work cut out for them to defend Gardner Minshew while trying to find open receivers against what should be tight coverage from the Titans secondary.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs HOU (5 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)

Westbrook was targeted five times but only ended the game with one catch for three yards. He was routinely open but penalties seemed to negate every big play he made -- from a holding on the offensive line eliminating a 12-yard gain on a screen to a 28-yard gain being negated by a strange offensive pass interference call, yellow flags hurt Westbrook's production more than anything.

2019 Week 1 vs KC (6 / 5 / 30 / 1 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)

With Nick Foles going down early, Dede Westbrook did not get many chances to show off the strong bond the two of them had created. Westbrook also saw a lot of double coverage, forcing the team to push the ball to different players. Most of Wesbtbrook's five catches were screens or dump offs, but he did make a great adjustment on a 15-yard touchdown from Gardner Minshew. Expect him to see more targets in future games.
