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.

Jaguars WRs coach Keenan McCardell conceded that WR Marquise Lee (knee) is unlikely to be ready for the start of training camp. “He’s probably a couple weeks into training camp before he’ll be back," McCardell said. Lee suffered ligament damage in his left knee last August. We never learned the exact extent of the injury, but it looks like it was more than just an ACL considering he'll need over a year to get fully cleared. Jacksonville's WR corps is wide open at this point, with Lee, Dede Westbrook, D.J. Chark, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley battling for playing time. But until we see him back and on the field and looking healthy, Lee isn't worth drafting.

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (knee) is not participating in OTAs this week -- although he was running on a side field on Tuesday, according to insider Phillip Heilman. Lee suffered ligament damage to a knee in a preseason game last August and missed the entire 2018 campaign. We never got further details on the injury, but it was clearly significant to have Lee still rehabbing 9 months later. We'll see if he's ready for the start of training camp in July. For now, Lee is just a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee left Saturday night's game against the Falcons on a cart after suffering a left knee injury. Lee took a hit to the knee from a Falcons safety midway through the 1st quarter. The team announced he will not return. We'll see about the severity beyond that. If you're drafting tonight -- or Sunday, before we get further word -- then just avoid Lee. He's not worth the risk.

Update: Former NFL head team Dr. David Chao believes Lee suffered a multi-ligament knee injury. It sounds like his season is likely over. We've removed Lee from the WR rankings.

The Jaguars have re-signed WR Marqise Lee to a 4-year, $38 million deal. So Jacksonville chose to let WR Allen Robinson walk and bring back Lee for about $4.5 million less per year. The 2014 2nd-rounder's pro career got off to a rough start, with 9 games missed and just 52 catches over his first 2 seasons. But over the past 2, Lee has missed just 2 games and racked up 119 grabs. He looks like the slight favorite ahead of WRs Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole to lead Jacksonville in 2018 targets

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. He returned to a limited practice on Friday -- his 1st since going down back in Week 15. It sounds like he'll be active this weekend, but Lee is a risky fantasy play in his 1st game back. It's entirely unclear how the Jags will divvy WR snaps between Lee, Allen Hurns, Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook.
