Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 17 vs IND (6 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)
Conley entered the game with incentives on the line for both catches and yards. Conley's opening target was a dropped open Out route on 3rd and 7 early in the second quarter. He hit his catch incentive on the final drive of the first half, a deep Comeback along the right sideline.
2019 Week 16 vs ATL (5 / 2 / 56 / 1 rec)
Conley drew the most targets of the pass catchers, but had an overall inefficient day. He drew a Defensive Holding penalty late in the 3rd quarter that kept the drive alive and helped put the Jaguars into field goal range. He scored a touchdown on one of the few positive plays of the game for the Jaguars Ð a 42 yard Go route. He beat the defender in man coverage and tracked the ball nicely (slightly underthrown). His only other reception was a big conversion on 4th and 10 late in the game, a Deep Out.
2019 Week 15 vs OAK (8 / 4 / 49 / 2 rec)
Conley didn't make a ton of grabs but he had three catches late in the game that were some of the biggest plays made in the entire 60 minute clash. Early on he struggled getting separation and did not win any balls down the field. He finished the game with four catches for 49 yards, but three of those catches and 31 of those yards came on the game's final two drives. He caught the aforementioned first touchdown by having a clean release off of the line and then securing the ball through contact. Now on the final drive, he caught a pass on drag route and turned it up field by out running angles and turning it into a 21 yard gain to get Jacksonville into Oakland territory. Finally, he again had a good release off of the line with a slant and for his head around just in time to catch the final touchdown pass. He's had issues with his hands this season, but he was clutch in Oakland.
2019 Week 14 vs LAC (3 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
He dropped an easy 3rd and 1 conversion on the second drive that the Jaguars desperately needed. He received a target off a Minshew improvisation play on 4th and 6. While he did not come down with the catch, he did draw pass interference to extend the drive. He was not really targeted again, recording just 1 catch on a day that Minshew dropped back 40 times.
2019 Week 13 vs TB (5 / 4 / 57 / 0 rec)
Chris Conley had one of his more efficient games of the season, catching four passes for 57 yards. He did drop a slant that would've gone for a big gain on Minshew's first pass of the game, but otherwise he once again showed good yards after the catch ability, taking one curl route for 20 yards after breaking an early tackle. He's inconsistent, but he provides some value to the offense.
2019 Week 12 vs TEN (9 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)
Conley was active on the first drive, converting for two first downs. On the first, he converted a Drag route on 3rd and 5 and breaking a tackle along the way for some extra yardage. The second was a simple Comeback route vs man coverage. He had a horrific drop on the second drive - a 9-route where he had a step on the defender - that hit him directly in the face and bounced off. He got a handful of targets (and most of the few deep targets) throughout the second half when the Jaguars were in catch-up mode and seems to be Foles' go-to guy in a pinch.
2019 Week 11 vs IND (8 / 6 / 58 / 0 rec)
Chris Conley got close friend Nick Foles back in the lineup and many expected for his production, especially as a vertical receiver, to increase because of it. Against the Colts though, Conley made only a few short catches on curl and comeback routes before garbage time. He finished the game with six catches on eight targets for 58 yards. Conley's most impactful plays came when the game was already decided in the fourth quarter, with the best one an impressive dig route over the middle of the field where he was able to catch a low Foles pass and turn it into a 24-yard gain. Conley was targeted deep a few times but Foles was never able to connect with him due to underthrows or double coverage.
2019 Week 9 vs HOU (7 / 2 / 32 / 0 rec)
Much like Chark, Conley was essentially invisible against the Texans. He did make a nice first down conversion in the first half. Aside from that, he was hardly targeted in the game.
2019 Week 8 vs NYJ (7 / 4 / 103 / 1 rec)
Chris Conley had his second consecutive big game for the Jaguars, hauling in four of his seven targets for a career-high 103 yards and one touchdown. The vast majority of his yards came on a 70-yard touchdown, which saw him run a crossing route against cover 3. The Jets' linebackers bit downhill when Minshew stepped up in the pocket and gave Conley a wide-open space to catch the ball in, and he then showed off his tremendous speed as he simply outran the rest of the defenders for the longest touchdown of his career. He did drop a pass, but ultimately he provided a big-bodied target for Minshew to hit underneath and across the middle of the field.
2019 Week 7 vs CIN (8 / 3 / 83 / 0 rec)
Conley had an up and down game but ultimately his good plays outshined the bad ones. The negative plays came during two dropped passes, each accurate balls thrown to him on 3rd downs. The positives were three catches for 83 yards, including two massive receptions in one possession. The first catch came on a 4th quarter dig route where he gained separation and then broke the first tackle attempt before running for 47 yards to set Jacksonville up near Cincinnati's end zone. The second play came just a few moments later as he ran a slant out the slot on the Jaguars' two-point conversion attempt and caught a rocket from Minshew to give Jacksonville the extra points.
2019 Week 6 vs NO (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Chris Conley had another really quiet game, finishing with zero catches on three targets. Each of those targets came in the second half but he didn't have a great chance to grab any of them thanks to Minshew being off-target and one coverage play that should have been called defensive pass interference. Conley saw one-on-one man coverage throughout the game but simply did not separate enough for Minshew to look his way.
2019 Week 5 vs CAR (3 / 1 / 26 / 0 rec)
Conley was barely used as a pass catching target against the Panthers, with Westbrook and Chark commanding most of Minshew's attention. He did catch a third-down pass on the game's final drive and then picked up major yards after the catch to make it a 26-yard gain. Otherwise, he saw two targets on Hail Mary passes at the end of the game.
2019 Week 4 vs DEN (4 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)
Conley did not have a reception until the final drive of the game. After Dede Wesbtrook's Deep Out got the ball into field goal range for Lambo, Conley added another 10 yards or so of comfort by making a 10 yard grab on a Comeback route.
2019 Week 3 vs TEN (3 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)
Conley made the first reception of the game, picking up 15 yards on a Deep Out. He caught a nice slant pass early in the second half, picking up good yardage after the catch. Other than that, he was not involved in the offense.
2019 Week 2 vs HOU (5 / 4 / 73 / 0 rec)
Conley only saw five targets on Sunday but he largely made the most of them. He dropped one 3rd down pass on the offensive's final drive, but the good far outweighed the bad as he turned in a four catch, 73-yard performance. Conley's best play came on a 31-yard deep shot connection from Minshew, the offense's biggest gain of the day. He beat the defensive back on the release to gain separation and then battled physical coverage to not only catch the pass but also keep both feet in bounds. He has become a consistent contributor this far.
2019 Week 1 vs KC (7 / 6 / 97 / 1 rec)
Conley led the team in targets with seven, which he turned into six catches for 97 yards and a touchdown. After a quiet preseason he made the most of his starter reps on Sunday and provided a safety blanket for both Foles and Minshew, showing the ability to become the team's possessions receiver who they hope can move the chains. This was evident on his 3rd-and-18 catch in the first quarter, as he shielded himself and the ball away from the defender to ensure a first down for Jacksonville.
