Huddle Up: Westbrook could be the designated player to return but he would not return until the middle of the season, so owners can avoid him for now. Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee could see more targets with Westbrook sidelined. Both may be considered flex options against certain opponents.

Huddle Up: If he can get and stay healthy Westbrook has a chance to play his way out of the realm of the waiver. Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee are Jacksonville's top two wideouts, but the No. 3 job is Westbrook's to take if he can outplay Allen Hurns. Stash Westbrook incase an ideal situation comes to fruition.

Huddle Up: For the second time in three preseason games, Westbrook went over the 100-yard plateau while recording six receptions. While he figures to be fourth on the wide receiver depth chart, there is potential here, as he may only be an injury away from getting significant playing time, and considering the injury-prone receivers ahead of him, it seems more likely than not he'll get an extended opportunity. He might be worth a late-round flier in deeper formats as a result.

Huddle Up: Westbrook seemed like a safe bet to make the 53-man roster, but if the team feels his injury is anything but a short-term deal he could be stashed on IR. Best case he'll open up behind Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns, which makes him nothing more than a late-round flier in larger leagues.

Huddle Up: Westbrook missed the last preseason game because of the injury but it appears he is dealing with a minor injury. He has a chance to be the No. 3 receiver this season and could see his role grow as the season goes on. Owners could consider selecting Westbrook in the late rounds of drafts.

Huddle Up: Westbrook missed the last preseason game because of the injury but it appears like he should be ready for the start of the regular season. He has a chance to earn a solid role in the passing game this season and could be a late-round flier in leagues.

Huddle Up: Westbrook missed the third preseason game but appears to be fine moving forward. He has a chance to move up the depth chart because of the question marks the team has at the position. He could be a late-round option in drafts as a possible No. 5 receiver.

Huddle Up: Westbrook has been playing well this preseason, but his injury could affect his spot on the depth chart. He has a chance to have a solid role in the passing game but could receive a smaller role if he is sidelined for weeks. He can be a late-round option in leagues if he is ready for the start of the regular season.

Huddle Up: Westbrook has explosive speed, but the Jaguars aren't exactly thin at receiver. It could take him some time to carve out a steady role, making him more of a stash candidate in keeper formats for now.

Huddle Up: Although the exact nature of his injury remains a mystery, it sounds like Westbrook is making progress. The Heisman finalist has game-breaking speed, but it may take him a while to carve out a meaningful role. He is just a stash candidate in keeper leagues at this point.

Huddle Up: Westbrook may struggle for targets in Jacksonville behind Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns. He's more of a late-round flier in deeper leagues in his first season in the NFL.

Huddle Up: Add this to the list of off-the-field concerns for the explosive slot receiver. There's no denying Westbrook's talent, but with all the other red flags, he is only worth a flier in dynasty leagues.

Huddle Up: Westbrook comes with off-the-field concerns but was insanely productive at Oklahoma. He's a slot receiver in the NFL and will vie for touches as a rookie. Look for designed plays around the line to give him the ball in space. Nevertheless, he doesn't warrant a draft spot in single-year formats.
