2019 Fantasy Outlook
Considering the circumstances, Westbrook had a decent year. Playing in a dysfunctional offense with Blake Bortles at quarterback, Westbrook led the team in targets (101), catches (66), receiving yards (717) and receiving TDs (5) on a modest per-target output - 7.1 YPT, 10.9 YPC. He also dropped eight passes, but he emerged as the No. 1 receiver, and last year's No. 2, Donte Moncrief, is now in Pittsburgh. At 6-0, 178, Westbrook has average height but he's slight and not especially well-suited for red-zone work (seven targets inside the 10, only one score). But Westbrook, who ran a 4.37 40 at the 2017 combine, is unusually fast for a slot receiver and has good quickness and vision - he also ran for 98 yards on nine carries and took a punt to the house. The Jaguars offense should be better in 2019 with Nick Foles replacing Bortles and John DeFilippo taking over for Nathaniel Hackett at offensive coordinator. Westbrook doesn't have much competition for top-target status with Marqise Lee still rehabbing from a sever knee injury. Last year's second rounder D.J. Chark is also in the mix, as are Keelan Cole and free-agent signee Chris Conley, but none of the three poses a huge threat to Westbrook. Read Past Outlooks

Team's leading receiver in loss
WRJacksonville Jaguars
October 13, 2019
Westbrook caught three of eight targets for 53 receiving yards during Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Saints.
ANALYSIS
Westbrook has been somewhat of a high-floor fantasy performer by virtue of a high-volume workload, garnering an average of 7.5 targets per game to this point in the season. He has five-plus catches in four of six outings, but his lacking touchdown production and inconsistent yardage outputs have kept him from being a weekly matchup-winning option. He has zero touchdowns since Week 1, and fewer than 47 receiving yards per game heading into an encounter with a Cincinnati pass defense that struggled Weeks 1 through 5, but allowed only one Ravens player to exceed 30 receiving yards Sunday.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
A fourth-round pick in 2017, Westbrook was a preseason darling last August before a core muscle injury required surgery, ultimately costing him the first 10 weeks of the regular season. The 24-year-old ended up catching 27 of 51 targets for 339 yards and one touchdown across seven games, and appeared poised for a larger role in 2018 after the departures of Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns this offseason. Instead, Westbrook found himself in a similar position following the additions of Donte Moncrief (free agency) and D.J. Chark (second-round pick). Marqise Lee and Keelan Cole led the Jaguars in catches and receiving yards last season, respectively, rounding out a talented group of receivers. Westbrook did see his prospects for 2018 improve considerably when Lee suffered a season-ending knee injury in August.
The rookie out of Oklahoma fell to the fourth round due to character concerns, and the Jaguars have made it clear that Westbrook will be on a short leash. If everything breaks right, Westbrook, a Heisman Trophy finalist, will have an opportunity to work out of the slot behind Marqise Lee, and it's easy to imagine his speed and shiftiness being utilized in the return game. Assuming he stays on the straight and narrow, Westbrook will compete with Rashad Greene for snaps leading up to Week 1.
