Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 6 vs DAL (5 / 3 / 38 / 1 rec)
Westbrook's first target did not come until 8 minutes left in the second quarter. Bortles broke the pocket and flipped the ball to Westbrook underneath at the last second. Westbrook did not anticipate Bortles tossing the ball to him and dropped it out of surprise. He was on the receiving end of the Jaguars lone scoring play of the day - a Deep Over where he got behind Sean Lee. It was the only notable play for him. Bortles was intercepted trying to throw the Deep Over to him again, but Westbrook was double covered and Dallas easily got the turnover.
2018 Week 5 vs KC (5 / 3 / 55 / 0 rec)
Westbrook was completely uninvolved through the first half. Bortles seemingly made an effort to come out of halftime to get him the ball. His first target of the game came on the first drive of the 3rd quarter. He broke open on a shallow cross and took it for 30 yards. He also had a very nice diving catch on a Deep Over for 23 yards on the following drive. Besides that, Bortles did not look his way very often.
2018 Week 4 vs NYJ (13 / 9 / 130 / 0 rec, 1 / 11 / 0 rush)
Westbrook had his best game so far as a pro. He was fantastic in terms of picking up yards after the catch. He got heavy usage underneath on Shallow Crosses but took almost every reception for positive YAC. His biggest play came on a Deep Cross where he also broke multiple tackles after the catch to pick up additional yardage. In the third quarter, he had another big reception downfield on a Corner route that was called back on an Illegal Shift penalty. Like Yeldon, he also had an awful fumble late in the 4th quarter with the Jaguars up and trying to run the clock out. Had the defense not come through, it could have been a much closer game.
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.
