Dede Westbrook does not have 200-yard debut

Dede Westbrook finished Sunday's matchup against the Browns with 35 yards on 3 receptions.

Fantasy Impact

Despite calling for a 200-yard game in his NFL debut, Westbrook did not have a huge day, even with Allen Hurns sidelined with an injury. As for all Jaguars receivers, Westbrook is limited by the team's dedication to the running game. He should not be in fantasy lineups this year.

Dede Westbrook to debut Week 11

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Jacksonville Jaguars have activated WR Dede Westbrook (core muscle surgery) from the injured reserve list.

Fantasy Impact

Following two weeks worth of anticipation, Westbrook will make his NFL debut on Sunday against the Browns after the Jaguars activated the rookie wideout off IR last night. In the wake of his return, he is expected to see an expanded role with Alen Hurns ruled out. As a result, he is a deep reach Flex option in a plus Week 11 matchup. However, he's best suited to be employed as a cheap journey-buster in DFS formats.

Dede Westbrook not activated from IR; out for Week 10

The Jaguars did not activate Dede Westbrook off of injured reserve this week. He is out for Week 10.

Fantasy Impact

This is a great sign for Marqise Lee's availability, as he was questionable coming into Week 10 with a knee injury. Westbrook must be activated off of IR by a week from Tuesday or he will remain out for the year.

Dede Westbrook uncertain for Week 10

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone is suggesting WR Dede Westbrook (core muscle surgery) remains uncertain for Week 10. “We’re waiting for him to be ready to go at the level where we think he can get on the field and help us,” Marrone said. “Right now, he’s just not ready... We don’t want to bring him back too early if he’s not ready, and right now we have time on our side as far as when we to make that move with him. A lot of it is up to how he does (in practice).’’

Fantasy Impact

Although he was eligible to be activated from short-term IR last week, Westbrook remained sidelined through the Jaguars' Week 9 win over Cincinnati. However, while all signs point to Westbrook making his pro-debut in Sunday's Week 10 matchup against the Chargers, the rookie wideout remains up in the air for the favorable contest. When he is indeed activated and ready for in-game action, I expect him to make an immediate impact on an inconsistent Jaguars passing game. With only Marqise Lee's job seemingly on lock-down, Westbrook has an opportunity to emerge as the team's WR2 or WR3 for the remainder of the year if he's impressive as he was in the preseason.

Dede Westbrook RULED OUT Week 9

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Jacksonville Jaguars wide reciver Dede Westbrook (core muscle surgery) was not activated by Saturday's 4 pm deadline.

Fantasy Impact

Although he was supposed to return this week, Westbrook is out for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals and remains on IR. As a result, his NFL debut is now expected to occur in Week 10. Stay tuned.
