From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 24): Westbrook's fantasy stock took a step back with the rest of the Jaguars offense in the loss to the Titans. He's just bench depth heading into a matchup with the Jets.

Week 4: vs New York Jets

All WR vs NYJ

FBG says: Neutral matchup. It's growing harder and harder to pinpoint the quality of Blake Bortles' quarterbacking. A week after shredding the Patriots, the bad Bortles showed up last Sunday, generating a paltry 155 yards on 34 attempts. (He also took three sacks.) Hounded all day by a good-not-great Titans pass rush, Bortles couldn't manufacture anything downfield. He still needs a ball-control running game that moves the chains to get any openings he can work with. As a result, with Leonard Fournette hobbled, Bortles sticks to check-downs and quick passes to the flats, with his other throws ranging from decent to wild. Lacking good poise or mechanics, Bortles has to take what defenses give him, which isn't much without Fournette on the field. He's got playmakers, led by downfield threats Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook, but still looks unable to get them the ball consistently. Fournette's return should help open things up, but this remains an exceptionally hit-or-miss passing game, and the hits generally aren't very satisfying. After prepping for deep-ball-minded Tyrod Taylor in Week 3, the Jets instead found themselves dinked-and-dunked into a loss by rookie Baker Mayfield. Still, the Jets pass defense has improved somewhat over its horrid 2017. Opposing quarterbacks are completing plenty of passes against them (64.3% thus far), but not finding many big plays down the field. Of course, that could be a personnel thing. In Week 1, the Lions' Kenny Golladay won numerous downfield routes and turned in a huge stat line. The cornerbacks are generally stout in coverage, but too much is asked of them from the nonexistent pass rush, which can't generate any pressure without blitzing. This isn't explicitly a unit to target heavily in fantasy, but it's not a full-on pushover, either.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 3 vs TEN (4 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)

Westbrook continues to see most of his production coming on Shallow Crosses and screens. He is improving in the YAC department, but still isnít a threat that defenses divert a lot of attention to or fear. He did have one very nice 3rd and long conversion on Pop pass vs the blitz.

2018 Week 2 vs NE (5 / 4 / 83 / 1 rec, 1 / -6 / 0 rush)

The game started disappointingly for Westbrook, as he opened the game with a fumble on his first catch that was recovered by his teammate. Most of his action in this game came on short crossers, and it looked like it was going to be a quiet game for him overall before he sealed the game with a 61 yard catch-and-run on a simple Drag route in the 4th quarter. His man got caught in the trash going over the middle of the field, and Westbrook was able to hit the jets in the open field. He made two defenders miss with the ball in his hands before running away from the defense and scoring.

2018 Week 1 vs NYG (6 / 5 / 51 / 0 rec)

Westbrook's first target came of a Deep Over on the first drive. Bortles' ball placement was excellent, but Westbrook was not able to make the catch. It appears that the safety's hit dislodged the ball, but the ball was already coming out before contact as Westbrook tried to awkwardly trap the ball against his chest. Bortles went right back to him for a 3rd and 4 conversion on a quick Out on the next play. He was targeted again on the same Deep Over concept he dropped on the first drive and he secured it for a 20 yard gain. He came notably wide open on a dig route in the 3rd quarter that Bortles checked down prematurely for an incompletion. He made a crucial 3rd and 3 conversion on a quick out with 5:30 remaining in the 4th quarter that allowed the drive to extend and some additional time to run off.
