FFToday's Take: Lee was limited on Friday but is expected to play and with DeDe Westbrook not activated the Jags will roll with their usual wide receiving corps of Lee, Allen Hurns and Keelan Cole. Lee is still looking for his first touchdown on the season.

FFToday's Take: Westbrook is coming off hernia surgery but will have to wait another week for his debut. Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee (knee) and Keelan Cole will be the top three wide receiver for Blake Bortles. None are appealing options in the Jaguars run-heavy scheme.

FFToday's Take: Lee missed practice Wednesday and Thursday but was limited Friday. He will start along side Allen Hurns in a matchup against the Steelers. Both can be considered as WR4s.

FFToday's Take: Lee missed practice Wednesday as well, suggesting he may sit out Week 5 against the Steelers. If he does miss, rookie Keelan Cole could see more snaps in two receiver sets along side Allen Hurns. Hurns would be the only viable receiving option in this run-heavy offense.

Coach expects other WRs to step up
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 12, 10:35 am
|Losing former Pro Bowl wide receiver Allen Robinson to a torn ACL was tough for Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone. While the Jaguars have plenty of depth, Robinson is easily the most complete receiver on the roster. Now the Jaguars will have to rely on speedster Marqise Lee and possession receiver Allen Hurns moving forward.
"Well, obviously we have confidence in Marqise and Allen to step up," Marrone said. (First Coast News)|
FFToday's Take: Both Lee and Hurns make solid waiver wire pickups this week, though we're wary of placing too much faith in Jacksonville QB Blake Bortles. Temper your expectations, and don;t expect anything more than inconsistent WR3 numbers out of either, as this offense appears to be running through rookie RB Leonard Fournette.

Out for the year

|The Jaguars make it official: WR Allen Robinson has torn his ACL. He's out for the season. Awful. In a contract year, too. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Keenan Allen almost made it to halftime last season. This year, Robinson made it 3 plays before tearing his ACL. It's a brutal loss for the Jaguars who will be without their best receiver who will miss the remainder of the season. Allen Hurns had been pushed inside to the slot position but he could be asked to step back outside, starting opposite Marqise Lee.

Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee starting outside
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 7, 8:00 am
|Although several signs have pointed to a demotion, Jaguars wide receiver Allen Hurns still has a prominent role in the Jacksonville offense. Hurns lined up as a slot receiver for the majority of the offseason and has continued to play that role in practice this week.
(First Coast News)|
FFToday's Take: Hurns confirmed the slot is his "permanent" position meaning he likely won't be on the field in two wide receiver sets. Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee will be starting the outside receivers.
