Week 7: at Cincinnati Bengals

All WR vs CIN

FBG says: Great matchup. Minshew brings a few attractive traits to the table: he's mobile and instinctive, capable of extending plays and turning nothing into something. He's done far better than expected as a sixth-round rookie thrust into such an in-transition offense. But he has still struggled for consistency, and beyond his connection with D.J. Chark, he hasn't been much of a statistical force. He's generated 6.5 yards or less per attempt in 3 of his 5 starts, including Sunday's bomb against the Saints (14 of 29 for 163 and an interception). With Chark smothered by Marshon Lattimore's coverage, Minshew struggled to beat the rush and get in sync with any of his receivers. He continues to look for big plays down the field to Chark and Dede Westbrook, and they've hooked up a handful of times. But there's downside to that approach, too: since Week 4, his completion rate has plummeted from 74% to 56%. Minshew brings some dynamism, but this offense remains run-based and hard to pin down week-to-week. Luckily, the whole attack is in prime rebound position against the Bengals' porous defense. Chark should face much less resistance from William Jackson, while Westbrook will work from the slot against one of the league's weakest inside/seam groups. The Cincinnati pass defense has inched forward statistically from its awful 2018, though they're mostly hollow numbers. And it's unlikely they'll take a step forward with both starting cornerbacks sidelined for the next month or so. Opponents haven't had to throw much against the winless Bengals, but they've been plenty efficient, producing 7.8 net yards per attempt (fourth-most in the league). Last week, Lamar Jackson played conservatively but completed 64% of his throws, even with top receiver Marquise Brown out. In his place, tight end Mark Andrews blew through the Cincinnati linebackers and secondary en route to 99 yards on 6 catches. In the process, cornerbacks William Jackson and Dre Kirkpatrick both went down with injuries, splitting up an exceptionally up-and-down 2019 for both. New outside starters Tony McRae and Torry McTyer, as well as burnable slot man B.W. Webb, will receive little support from Jessie Bates and Shawn Williams, one of football's worst safety duos thus far. Going forward, it seems only game script can slow down opposing pass games. Gardner Minshew is fresh off the first bad start of his young career, but he and the Jaguars' weapons are a good bet to maximize whatever opportunity they're given Sunday.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 4 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)

Cole's first reception of the season was a huge one - getting open for Minshew on a scramble drill on the first drive of the second quarter. They connected for a 3rd and 14 conversion to keep the drive alive.

2019 Week 2 vs HOU (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Keelan Cole only played 9 snaps and was not targeted once, despite Marqise Lee not playing due to a knee injury.

2019 Week 1 vs KC (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Cole only played 12 offensive snaps and he was not targeted once on Sunday. He is simply at the bottom of the team's depth chart and with Nick Foles out, don't expect that to change.
