Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook isn't expected to practice on Thursday, according to the team. He wasn't on the injury report on Wednesday -- so he either got hurt in practice or is just getting a day off. We'll know more by Friday afternoon.

The forecast for today's Jaguars-Broncos game calls for sustained winds around 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph. That's more than enough to impact the passing and kicking games. No one expected this to be a fantasy bonanza anyways. You can stick with RBs Leonard Fournette, Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman, but we'd try to avoid the QBs, WRs and Ks in this game.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone admitted Saturday that WR Marqise Lee might miss the start of the season. He remains on the PUP list after suffering a significant knee injury last August. Lee isn't worth a pick in fantasy drafts. Dede Westbrook, D.J. Chark and Chris Conley are expected to open the season as Jacksonville's top 3 WRs.

The forecast for today's Jaguars-Chiefs game calls for periods of heavy rain. The good news is that winds are expected to be only 6-7 mph. They aren't ideal conditions, but it's not enough for us to adjust our projections for these passing games. You might use the weather as a tiebreaker if deciding between 2 similarly ranked players, though.

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee will have season-ending surgery after suffering ligament damage in his left knee Saturday, HC Doug Marrone announced Monday. It's not yet clear which ligament is the problem, but the ACL is usually involved in these scenarios. We'll update that as more info gets released. We already adjusted the projections for the rest of the Jacksonville WR corps over the weekend in anticipation of bad news, though. According to Adam Levitan of Fantasy Labs, Donte Moncrief led WRs by playing 32 of 40 first-team snaps after Lee left Saturday's game. Keelan Cole followed at 28, with Dede Westbrook at 26 and rookie D.J. Chark at 14.

We passed along a late-July report from ESPN's Michael DiRocco that Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook was looking like the team's #5 WR. It sounds like that's changed -- and drastically -- over the past couple of weeks. John Oehser of the team's official website believes Westbrook "may be playing his way into a spot among the top three receivers." He ran with the starters in the preseason opener (although WR Keelan Cole was out with an injury) and hauled in 3 balls for 32 yards. "A day rarely has gone by in camp that Westbrook hasn’t stood out, and starting quarterback Blake Bortles appears to be going his way more quickly as camp continues," Oehser writes. "He appears to be putting together the entire approach necessary to be a consistent, productive NFL receiver – and that could be earning him a far bigger role this season than some observers expected." We'll continue to monitor Jacksonville's WR depth chart. Westbrook is worth a look near the end of drafts, but Marqise Lee is probably the only guy in the group we'll be able to trust in early-season fantasy lineups.
