2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Sour finish to 2018
WRJacksonville Jaguars
December 31, 2018
Westbrook caught three of 10 targets for 10 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's loss at Houston. He finished the season with 66 catches for 717 yards and five touchdowns, while carrying nine times for 98 yards.
ANALYSIS
Despite the abysmal showing in the season finale, Westbrook still finished as the Jaguars top wide receiver in catches, yards, and touchdowns. Jacksonville ended the year with one of the worst offenses in the NFL, which isn't exactly surprising with Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler under center. Still, it was a step forward for the 25-year-old after playing only seven games in his rookie campaign, as he also made an impact on special teams with 266 punt return yards and one touchdown. Marqise Lee (knee) and Westbrook currently project as the Jaguars' top two wide receivers for 2019, though the team could certainly make some additions through the draft or free agency. The evolution of Jacksonville's quarterback situation will have a significant impact on his fantasy outlook next season.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
