Lee caught three of six targets for 30 yards in Sunday's loss to Houston. After nursing a hamstring injury for a large chunk of the season, Lee showed signs of life in the final two weeks of the year, turning 10 total targets into six catches and his first touchdown of the season. It's hard to remember that it was Lee that was the Jaguars' chosen young receiver in 2014, followed by Allen Robinson later that same round and Allen Hurns in free agency. The two Allens have since passed Lee and the young receiver's best shot at playing time in 2016 will likely come in three- and four-receiver sets.
Lee caught three passes for 26 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to New Orleans. Injuries have limited Lee's impact this season, but he found the end zone for the first time Sunday. The 2014 second-round pick will have trouble finding a larger role next season behind the tandem of Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns, but if he remains healthy, he has the makings of a reliable third or fourth receiver. Lee was also utilized in the ground game Sunday, rushing once for nine yards on his fourth carry of the season.
Lee managed just once catch for 17 yards on four targets, and added a four-yard carry in Sunday's loss to the Titans. Many expected Lee to step up in the absence of Allen Hurns (concussion), but quarterback Blake Bortles chose to transfer the majority of Hurns' would-be targets to top receiver Allen Robinson. Lee could make for an interesting play against the Indianapolis if Hurns still isn't ready next week, as there's a strong chance the Colts defense sells out to contain Robinson.
Lee is slated to start in place of Allen Hurns on Sunday against the Titans. He'll start at wideout opposite Allen Robinson and while Lee has been limited to just five catches for 51 yards in five games to date, he should see his share of looks in the Jags' offense Sunday, making him worth a fantasy dart for those scrambling for wideout help in Week 13.
Lee should get more playing time in Week 13 against the Titans after the Jaguars ruled Allen Hurns (concussion) out, the Florida Times-Union reports. The Hurns injury opens the door for Lee, who has been injured but has played the previous three games, though it probably is more of a benefit for Allen Robinson and Julius Thomas. The Jaguars have been an improved passing team in year two of the Blake Bortles era, which bodes well for Lee. However, the Titans rank seventh in passing yards allowed per game, so the Week 13 game plan could be heavy on T.J. Yeldon and the ground attack.
