Westbrook was placed on injured reserve with a core injury.

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.

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.

Our 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.

Our 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.

Jaguars | Friday report for Jags (Fri Sep 8, 04:40 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (abdomen) did not practice Friday, Sept. 8, and has been ruled out for Week 1. FS Tashaun Gipson (ankle) and RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) were limited participants and are questionable. DT Michael Z. Bennett (groin), QB Blake Bortles (wrist), DE Dante Fowler Jr. (knee), CB Jalen Ramsey (hip) and OL Josh Wells (ribs) practiced in full and have been removed from the report.

Jaguars | Dede Westbrook still limited (Thu Sep 7, 04:53 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) remained limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

Our View: Westbrook was a late-round 'lottery ticket' pick for fantasy owners in deep leagues and we appreciate his skill set for dynasty leagues. We're not going overboard with any Jaguars wide receiver in 2017.
