2020 Fantasy Outlook
Cole has provided solid production over his first three seasons for a UDFA (104 catches, 1,600 yards and seven touchdowns), but he's buried on the depth chart and has been trending down since his rookie year. The 27-year-old finished 2019 with 24 catches for 361 yards and three touchdowns and was the team's clear fourth wideout behind D.J. Chark, Chris Conley and Dede Westbrook. The addition of second-round pick Laviska Shenault only further complicates Cole's path to playing time. The Jags retained his services for 2020 with a second-round tender as a restricted free agent, though production figures to remain minimal while entering camp as the team's fourth or fifth wide receiver.

Only one catch Sunday
WRJacksonville Jaguars
October 26, 2020
Cole caught one of two targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 39-29 loss to the Chargers.
ANALYSIS
It was a disappointing follow-up to Cole's 143-yard eruption against the Lions last week, but the Chargers' pass rush gave Gardner Minshew little time to let routes develop downfield, and the production of the entire WR corps suffered. Cole is on pace for a career-best season heading into Jacksonville's Week 8 bye, but he could be catching passes from a different quarterback on the other side of the break, as Minshew's job security is shaky following six straight losses.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
An undrafted free agent darling in 2017 while logging 749 receiving yards, Cole's sophomore season saw him take a major step back as he was basically cut out of the offense by midseason. He was heavily involved early in the year, but was marred by fumbles and drops, leading to a drastic reduction in playing time. If Cole can solve the ball-security issues, he has a real chance to step in as Jacksonville's second or third receiver behind Dede Westbrook. Cole caught 38 passes for 491 yards last year in an anemic offense, despite going catch-less in five games, so the potential for production is clearly there. New quarterback Nick Foles should also provide some added stability and accuracy compared to the likes of Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler. Cole will be competing with D.J. Chark and Chris Conley, and the competition should start out on relatively even footing.
Cole, a 2017 undrafted free agent, took advantage of numerous injuries to Jaguars receivers last season to lead the team in receiving yards (748 on 42 receptions), but will have to compete with free agent acquisition Donte Moncrief and second-round pick D.J. Chark in 2018, in addition to Dede Westbrook. The 25-year-old demonstrated near-instant chemistry with quarterback Blake Bortles in his rookie season and very well may build on that performance with his pinpoint route running, but it's worth remembering that Leonard Fournette is still poised to power a run-heavy offense. Jacksonville has a bevy of talent at wide receiver and no clear-cut No. 1 option heading into the season, which could lead to a somewhat malleable depth chart. Cole's stock did get a major bump when Marqise Lee suffered a season-ending knee injury in late August. Seemingly locked in as a starter, Cole has a real shot to lead the team in targets.
