WR - NE - OPT-OUT
Week 3 Outlook
WR Marquise Lee has elected to opt out of the 2020 season.
Lee becomes the latest Patriot to opt out of the 2020 season. He joins Marcus Cannon, Brandon Bolden, Patrick Chung, Dont’a Hightower, Danny Vitale and Najeen Toran. Lee became a first time father in February. “We just feel like it wasn’t smart for us to go out and play this year,” said Lee. The 28-year-old’s one-year contract will roll into 2021. Lee hauled in three catches for 18 yards on four targets across six games for the Jaguars in 2019.
Free-agent wide receiver Marqise Lee is assigning a one-year deal with the New England Patriots, according to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.
Lee was released by the Jaguars earlier in the week in a cost-cutting move as the veteran wideout has dealt with injuries the last few years. He'll get a chance to bounce back in New England, though things will look very different for the Patriots this season with Tom Brady no longer at the helm.
A source has told Ian Rapoport that the Jaguars are releasing WR Marqise Lee.
Lee, 28, has played five seasons with the Jaguars. He only played in six games last season as he was nursing a shoulder injury. He is reportedly feeling healthy and medically cleared. He could be a great addition to a team in need of a slot receiver with good hands.
Marquise Lee (shoulder) was placed on the injured reserve Tuesday.
Lee exited Sunday’s Week 8 contest against the Jets early with an apparent shoulder injury. The severity of the injury is unknown, but it was serious enough for the Jaguars to place him on the injured reserve. Lee will end 2019 with a 3-18-0 on four targets across six appearances.
Marqise Lee did not return to Sunday's contest against the Jets due to a shoulder injury, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
Lee continues to deal with injuries and has a hard time staying on the field. Lee finished with one catch for eight yards and fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates for his availability in Week 9.
