|Perhaps the reason the Jags did not want to send Westbrook deep in 2019 is because they also have Chris Conley. He has the same 4.3 speed but is also 6'3", and he was often used as a field-stretcher last season. He had the highest yards-per-reception mark of his career in 2019, at 16.5. Likely because Minshew is not a very good deep-ball thrower, he only caught 52% of his targets (47 receptions on 90 targets). He did record 775 yards on those receptions, with 5 touchdowns.
If Minshew improved his deep accuracy, it is possible Conley could be a nice sleeper this season. Defenses are likely going to key on Chark, putting their top corner on him and doubling him at times. That should free up Conley with man coverage against a lesser corner much of the time on the other side.
Many see Conley as "just another guy," but they forget that he was extremely raw coming out of Georgia and has been getting better each year. They also miss that he is an athletic freak who not only ran 4.35 in the 40, but also had a 45-inch vertical leap and an 11-foot 7-inch broad jump (both all-time wide receiver records!). If the guy is healthy and continues to get opportunity, he may just become a stud at the position opposite Chark. He is a player to keep an eye on early this season to see how Gruden intends to use him.

FFToday's Take: The Jags will be operating at less than 100 percent against the Browns in Week 12. Mike Glennon will be throwing to the likes of Laviska Shenault and Keelan Cole. Both are flex considerations if you're desperate.

FFToday's Take: The Jaguars will be down one of their playmakers against Packers. Minus Shenault, Jacksonville will feature D.J. Chark, Chris Conley and Keelan Cole in three wide receiver sets. Conley posted a 7-52 line on 8 targets last week against the Texans.
