From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 18): There is room for a Jaguars receiver to get hot down the stretch against a weak schedule with DJ Chark taking the top off of defenses. Westbrook is a short range option who was getting hot before his shoulder injury sidelined him.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 11 vs IND (6 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec - 5.2 points, $5400)

Despite being a focal point of the offense during Foles' time at quarterback in training camp, Westbrook was not much of a factor Sunday. He caight four passes on six targets for 32 yards, with almost half of those yards coming on one catch early in the game. Westbrook ran a lot of short routes out of the slot and was not targeted deep, though it was surprising that Foles did not target him more as a checkdown target after he became more conservative as the game wore on. 

2019 Week 8 vs NYJ (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec - 0 points, $5800)

Dede Westbrook only played one half of football before leaving with a shoulder and neck injury, but he did not record a catch on his lone target. Westbrook has been amongst the Jaguars' most heavily targeted players all season, so if he continues to deal with a shoulder injury it would be a big loss for the Jacksonville offense.

2019 Week 7 vs CIN (9 / 6 / 103 / 0 rec, 2 / 14 / 0 rush - 14.7 points, $5400)

Despite entering the game with a shoulder injury, Westbrook was Jacksonville's most targeted wideout with nine targets. He converted this to six receptions for 103 yards, and he also had two carries for 14 yards.  This was by far Westbrook's best game of the season as he frequently found the soft spots in the Bengals' zone coverages and then picked up yards after the catch with ease. He has proven to be Jacksonville's primary quick passing game threat and his chemistry with Minshew is improving dramatically. His best play was a 33-yard reception with less than 0:30 left in the first half as he climbed the ladder and stole the ball out of the air from a defender to not only prevent an interception but also move the Jaguars into field goal range. 

2019 Week 6 vs NO (8 / 3 / 53 / 0 rec - 6.8 points, $5400)

Westbrook led the team in targets with eight but he finished with only three catches for 53 yards. He had one great play vs. man coverage in the second half when he beat Eli Apple on a dig route for a 23-yard gain, but otherwise Westbrook was not a factor on Sunday.  Like Conley, Westbrook had a lot of favorable matchups on Sunday thanks to Chark receiving so much attention. But like Conley, he seemingly was never able to get himself open with any inconsistency, adding to the offense's struggles.

2019 Week 5 vs CAR (11 / 7 / 82 / 0 rec - 11.7 points, $5300)

Westbrook started the season off slow during its first three weeks but he has turned in two strong performances in a row, though he was a bit less consistent against the Panthers than he was against the Denver Broncos. He caught seven passes for 82 yards, with his longest catch going for 30 yards, as he was able to find the soft zones in the Carolina defense early and often. His quickness off of the line and after the catch makes him dangerous on short to intermediate throws and this was the case against the Panthers. On the flip side, Westbrook also dropped one pass and made a terrible mistake on special teams. With less than a minute left in the first half, head coach Doug Marrone used the last of his timeouts to give his offense a chance to get into field goal range and get points before the half. But the entire strategy was wasted when Westbrook caught the ensuing punt and ran the entire lateral distance of the field trying to make a play, despite there being almost no time in the half. He wasted almost 20 seconds and ended up actually losing three yards.

2019 Week 4 vs DEN (6 / 5 / 66 / 0 rec - 9.1 points, $5300)

Westbrook had a very quiet day, but made the biggest reception on the game-winning drive. He caught a Deep Out from the slot, picking up enough yards after the catch to get the ball into comfortable range for a Josh Lambo field goal.

2019 Week 3 vs TEN (9 / 5 / 46 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush - 7.5 points, $5200)

Westbrook caught the first pass of the third drive, a quick Flat route for a short gain. Later in the drive he made a fantastic extended catch near the sideline on a Corner route off Play-Action. He got a Jet Sweep carry for a pickup of four yards that came directly out of the Los Angeles Rams' playbook. He had two bad drops during the two-minute drill to end the first half. On the first, he popped up a well-thrown slant and almost caused an interception. The second was another easy drop on an Out route on 3rd and 4 that would have gone for a conversion. On a 3rd and 4 in the second half, he dropped a would-be touchdown on another bucket Fade throw by Minshew. Westbrook got his hands on it, but bobbled and dropped the ball as he went down in the endzone.

2019 Week 2 vs HOU (5 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec - 0.8 points, $5900)

Westbrook was targeted five times but only ended the game with one catch for three yards. He was routinely open but penalties seemed to negate every big play he made -- from a holding on the offensive line eliminating a 12-yard gain on a screen to a 28-yard gain being negated by a strange offensive pass interference call, yellow flags hurt Westbrook's production more than anything.

2019 Week 1 vs KC (6 / 5 / 30 / 1 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush - 11.7 points, $5900)

With Nick Foles going down early, Dede Westbrook did not get many chances to show off the strong bond the two of them had created. Westbrook also saw a lot of double coverage, forcing the team to push the ball to different players. Most of Wesbtbrook's five catches were screens or dump offs, but he did make a great adjustment on a 15-yard touchdown from Gardner Minshew. Expect him to see more targets in future games.
