You never want to make light of an injury, but there is a sense of opportunity looming in the Jaguars' locker room.


Jacksonville took a big hit this week when wide receiver Marqise Lee was carted off the field with an apparent knee injury. While the Jaguars have not given a timetable for his return nor a diagnosis of what exactly happened, you can assume he'll be out for a long time. Anytime the cart is broken out, good news rarely follows. 


This could be a huge blow to the Jags, but a big chance for players like Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole to break out. 

​​There was already potential, but now the ceiling is extremely high for both of these second-year wideouts. 


Lee isn't viewed as a fantasy juggernaut, but he was still a bigtime option for Blake Bortles over the years. Over the past two seasons, he's had 105 targets. That's a lot of looks now open to the floor. Donte Moncrief would normally be the first option here, but he's more of a deep threat than a possession receiver. 


Westbrook and Cole both had spurts of greatness last year and could explode onto the scene with increased targets. 

​​Westbrook is the hot commodity across the board. He burst onto the scene in the seven appearances, with 27 catches and a touchdown, and was already expected to have a bigger role before the injury. Having said that, you have to believe Cole is the one who will truly take the bigger leap.


He already had a bigger role than Cole last season with 42 catches and three touchdowns with only six starts. As the second wideout for the entire season, he will undoubtedly get triple-digit targets in an offense that will have to throw the ball.
