Cole caught four of eight targets for 45 yards during Sunday's 20-3 loss to the Texans. Though the Jaguars offense was downright ugly for much of Sunday, it was a decent finish to the season for Cole, who had been held catchless over the previous two weeks. The second-year target looked like a solid find early in the season, but he didn't top 100 yards or score after Week 2's win over the Patriots. He could definitely be in line for a value bump if Jacksonville upgrades at quarterback in the offseason.
Cole did not catch either of his two targets during Sunday's 17-7 win over the Dolphins. Cole was again unable to capitalize on his usage as Jacksonville's No. 3 wideout, as he logged his fifth game of the season without a catch. The second-year receiver has struggled in Jacksonville's low-octane offense all year, and he doesn't carry much fantasy intrigue heading into a Week 17 tilt against the Texans.
Cole played 39 offensive snaps but wasn't targeted in Sunday's 16-13 loss to the Redskins. The Jaguars had a miserable offensive performance Sunday as quarterback Cody Kessler attempted only 17 passes and totaled 57 passing yards. Cole once again served as the No. 3 wide receiver with D.J. Chark (quadriceps) still sidelined and actually saw one fewer snap than Donte Moncrief, but there's little fantasy value given the current state of Jacksonville's offense.
Cole brought in three of seven targets for 55 yards in the Jaguars' 30-9 loss to the Titans on Thursday. Cole brought in a game-long 35-yard reception on a nifty grab down the left sideline in the third quarter, and he checked in second only to Dede Westbrook in receiving yardage on the night. The 25-year-old went through a three-game streak where he was shut out of the stat sheet altogether, so his five receptions for 71 yards over the last two games actually represents a nice uptick in production. The week-to-week fantasy value of any member of the Jaguars' air attack is difficult to predict, but Cole will look to continue building momentum against the Redskins in a Week 15 interconference matchup.
Cole caught both his targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 6-0 win over Indianapolis. Cole saw 37 offensive snaps Sunday with D.J. Chark (quad) again sidelined and managed to log his first yards after being blanked in each of the previous three games. The 25-year-old remains a Hail Mary option for fantasy but could work as the Jaguars' No. 3 receiver again Thursday at Tennessee with Chark missing the first two practices of the week.
