Dede Westbrook placed on IR

Fox Sports is reporting the Jacksonville Jaguars have placed wide receiver Dede Westbrook on the injured reserve list with a core muscle injury.

Fantasy Impact

Westbrook, who had an outstanding training camp and preseason, was placed on IR with a core muscle injury Saturday unexpectedly. Moving forward, Allen Robinson, Marquise Lee and Allen Hurns are expected to fill out the top three WR spots on the Jaguars. However look out for Keelan Cole. He's likely the next man up for an expanded role any of the aforementioned WRs struggles or are lost to injury.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed Dede Westbrook on Injured Reserve.

Fantasy Impact

After having an impressive preseason, Westbrook will be unavailable for the beginning of the season. O'Halloran did go on to report that Westbrook is eligible to return later in the year. That being said, he is not worth rostering in fantasy this season.

Dede Westbrook will miss opener against Texans

Rookie WR Dede Westbrook will miss the 2017 opener against the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

This could open the door for a deep sleeper favorite of the fantasy community, Keelan Cole. He may be worth a look in DFS, but for normal fantasy leagues, I wouldn't be starting any Jaguars WR besides Allen Robinson anyway. Marqise Lee is listed as the team's WR2 officially, if you're in a really deep league or desperate.

Dede Westbrook shines in preseason finale

Dede Westbrook finished Thursday night's matchup against the Atlanta Falcons with 6 receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

With nearly all of the starters sitting out the final preseason game, Westbrook took full advantage of his opportunity and led the Jaguars' passing attack to top off an already great preseason. While he has been impressive, his production should be taken with a grain of salt since he had been playing mostly against opposing teams' backups. He has solidified himself as a big play late-round flier in deeper fantasy leagues.

Dede Westbrook expected to return from injury soon

According to Ian Rapoport, Dede Westbrook is expected to return to practice soon after getting a second opinion in Philadelphia regarding a core injury.

Fantasy Impact

This is good news for Westbrook. Rookies need as many reps as possible to get up to speed in the NFL. That being said, Westbrook is still just a late-round flier with Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, and Marqise Lee ahead in the Jaguars' pecking order.
