Last Sunday when Allen Robinson went down in Houston it became clear that the Jaguars depth at WR would be tested.
Who will step up for the Jaguars?
There are several wide receivers that can step up besides the $10 million man, Allen Hurns, and right now I am going with Marquise Lee. Lee was drafted in the same class that Hurns went undrafted and while number 88 has performed more consistently throughout his career, I believe this is number 11's time to shine and he has the ability to do so. There are others besides Lee - The Jaguars also have Arrelious Benn, and he had a solid, but brief stay in Tampa, but afterward, he kind of fell off the face of the earth with injury issues.
Arrelious Been, when he was in Tampa Bay, in 2010 he had 25 receptions, 395 yards and 2 touchdowns, while in 2011 he had 30 receptions for 441 yards, with 3 touchdowns. Been arrived in Jacksonville in 2016 after a long battle with injuries. Last year he hauled in 5 receptions for 116 yards and 1 touchdown. So, while he may have the ability, he's more of a special teams star and situational WR.
I am predicting Marqise Lee will be the man who steps up with Allen Hurns in 2017. Lee, since he has been in Jacksonville has racked up 115 catches, 1,464 yards, and five touchdowns. He and Hurns will have to do the majority of the heavy lifting for the Jaguars WRs in 2017, but Lee should lead the way for this years Jags.
