Coach Doug Marrone said Dede Westbrook  is "on track" to return in Week 9 from his IR status.


Westbrook is a guy that I think could make a big splash down the stretch.....even more so than guys like Corey Davis or Mike Williams.  He was the best wide receiver in college football last season and was arguably the best rookie receiver in the preseason
 
 
OBJ circa 2014  good? Doubtful.....but not beyond the realm of possibility.

 

 

I feel my football knowledge is vastly superior to my opponents. I also am just in general, a smarter person. These two things should allow me a huge advantage. But I've yet to be truly dominant.

Might as well take a chance if you can. That team is all defense and run game though. Hopefully they can be involved in some shootouts.

I posted about Dede Westbrook in one of the preseason sleeper threads here before he got injured and thought he had the best shot to be this year's version of Tyreek Hill. But, and this is a huge but, it depends on how Jax uses him. If they use him strictly as a WR then he will be a boom/bust option with the chance to break a long TD on any given play while also dissapointing you with a 3 for 30 day on any given week. Now if they throw him on kick and punt returns, throw to him on bubble screens, give him end arounds, etc then he could have major value going forward.

Yeah, I see him as one of those fast electric deep threat guys like a Desean Jackson or Torrey Smith.  He'll be capable of 6/120/2 every week, but also 1/21/0.  Still, not much out there on the ww for WR's so he'd be worth taking a flier on especially if you have hot garbage on your bench like M Bryant.

We know Jax wants to run with Fournette first. I’m not sure how fast Dede can leapfrog all the other receivers.

I’m not dropping Corey Davis for him.

Fornette has an injury and ALL the other wideouts on the team combined don't equal the skill he has so I would guess he sees a pretty nice target share off the bat.

For me, I grab DeDe over Fun.....although Fun has been getting a lot of targets.

 

However, that is just me. I have a feeling that Westbrook is gonna have an eye-popping second half. I consider him the best WR of last years draft class. One must remember, though, that he is a rookie that has had a long layoff, who doesn't have the greatest QB in the world.

 

My recommendations are based entirely on his talent and gut feeling.

Depends a bit on roster need. If you need a WR 3 I'm sticking with Funchess, if I need a WR 1 and full of WR 3/4s I'm grabbing Dede.

If you have the bench space he is a near must add imo. Week 9 all the way through week 16 he has a great schedule except for wk14 vs SEA. the dude was a stud in college and by far the most talented wr on the team. I doubt ODB rookie year good, but I wouldn't be shocked if he was the thing that put a lot of owners over the top to a championship. Get him now before every "week 9 waiver wire" post mentions him.

This sounds a wee bit over the top. He is a rookie missed 8 weeks and you think he is immediately coming in on a run first team and just start to dominate. Maybe he will, but how often has that happened?

Many of us have grabbed either Corey Davis or Josh Doctson hoping one of these guys can be our number one. Are you putting Dede above these two guys already?

Davis has Mariota
Doctson has Cousins
Dede has Bortles

I actually grabbed all three. Davis I grabbed a week ago, Doctson I bid 12%, DeDe was $1. I guess that says how I view them.

No, I don't think he will dominate but could certainly be a guy you could get for free right now that could put up good WR3 numbers and give you a few big games too rest of the way. i guess what I should have said was he could be a guy that gives owners with good teams that something extra to put them over the top.

Stacked at RB with Bell, Hunt, and Howard. Struggling at Wr since Beckham went down. It's a keeper league and I've done well with keepers, drafting and then trading them.

I own Diggs and Hogan. Neither are BIG names so in all honesty, I’m looking for a number one type guy. I’m hoping Davis or Doctson can be that. I’m listening though to the people who know more about Dede and have seen him play. Can he be a number one after a few weeks of getting acclimated, even with Bortles?

I think Dede is boom or bust kinds receiver in that offense. The other two I see as being able to put up consistent numbers. Diggs and Hogan don't carry the name value if some WR 1s but they are a solid duo to have leading your team's WRs if you have solid rbs to go with them.
