Dede Westbrook signed to Green Bay practice squad

WR Dede Westbrook was signed to the Green Bay Packers' practice squad on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Westbrook is a six-year veteran that last made an appearance for the Vikings in 2021. He could add some depth to the Packers' barren receiver room, potentially carving out a role at some point. He will not have any fantasy relevance regardless of his future prospects.

Dede Westbrook signs with Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings signed Dede Westbrook, the WR's agency announced Sunday. No details were provided.

Fantasy Impact

Westbrook worked out for the Vikings Saturday, according to Ian Rapoport, so the WR must be on track to play Week 1 after suffering a torn ACL Week 7 last season. Drafted in the fourth round in 2017 by the Jacksonville Jaguars, Westbrook's missed 24 games since entering the league - including 14 last season. Appearing in 15 games in 2019, the WR totaled 66 catches on 101 targets for 660 yards and three touchdowns.

Dede Westbrook hints at potential signing with Vikings

Free agent wide receiver and former Jacksonville Jaguar shared an Instagram story stating he was in Minnesota, followed by a Snapchat story of TCO Stadium, where the Vikings practice, reading, "Almost that time again".

Fantasy Impact

After a solid 2019 campaign, Westbrook caught just one pass in 2020 before suffering a gruesome knee injury in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Chargers. If he were to sign with the Minnesota Vikings, he could step in immediately as the team's WR3 if of course he has fully recovered from last season injury.

Dede Westbrook (knee) expected to be fully cleared to return by July

Former Jacksonville Jaguars and current free-agent WR Dede Westbrook (knee) is expected to be fully cleared to participate in football activities by July, which would mark eight months since his surgery to repair a torn ACL he suffered back in October 2020, per Josina Anderson.

Fantasy Impact

Westbrook saw just one target in 2020 prior to his injury after receiving 101 targets in consecutive years during 2018 and 2019. The speedy slot receiver is an explosive short route runner and relies on his blazing speed to bypass linebackers and safeties across the middle. It's been reported that Westbrook and the San Francisco 49ers have engaged in preliminary communication recently, suggesting that the fifth-year wideout could land a role behind Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel in 2021.
