Headed to Houston

Conley is signing a one-year deal with Houston, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: The Texans clearly have a type this offseason, targeting a slew of veterans who have experience as starters but arguably fit better as backups. Conley averaged 23.4 yards per game in four seasons with the Chiefs, followed by 40.2 yards per game in two seasons with the Jaguars. He'll likely land somewhere between third and fifth on the WR depth chart when the dust settles in Houston this summer.

Finishes campaign on strong note

Conley brought in seven of nine targets for 87 yards in the Jaguars' 28-14 loss to the Colts on Sunday.

Analysis: The veteran paced the Jaguars in receptions, receiving yards and targets while setting new season highs in the latter two categories as well. Conley put together a second straight solid campaign as a complementary option in Jacksonville's passing attack, reaching the 40-catch mark for the second time in as as many seasons as a Jaguar and third time overall in his career. The six-year pro is now slated to head into unrestricted free agency this offseason, although it remains to be seen if new team management will be interested in bringing him back into the fold.

Secures three passes

Conley caught all three targets for 27 yards during Sunday's 41-17 loss to Chicago.

Analysis: The 28-year-old played 49 percent of the offensive snaps and surpassed his production from the previous three games combined with Collin Johnson (hamstring) sidelined. Conley could serve as Jacksonville's No. 4 wideout again in the season finale if Johnson remains unavailable.

Catches second touchdown

Conley caught one of three targets for a 13-yard touchdown during Sunday's 40-14 loss at Baltimore.

Analysis: Conley secured his second touchdown of the season in the final minutes of the fourth quarter as he continues to play a minor role in Jacksonville's aerial attack. The 28-year-old could see that role grow slightly if No. 4 wideout Collin Johnson (hamstring) is forced to miss time.

No targets Week 14

Conley wasn't targeted during Sunday's 31-10 loss to Tennessee.

Analysis: The 28-year-old played only nine offensive snaps despite the Jaguars trailing all afternoon, and he wasn't targeted on any of the 54 pass attempts from Mike Glennon and Gardner Minshew. Rookie Collin Johnson continues to operate as Jacksonville's No. 4 wide receiver, leaving Conley to play a handful of snaps each week.

Plays eight snaps

Conley caught both his targets for 12 yards and lost a fumble during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: The veteran wideout wasn't targeted until halfway through the fourth quarter, and he promptly lost a fumble on his first touch of the game. Rookie Collin Johnson caught four targets for 66 yards and, while Conley played only a handful of offensive snaps. Conley's role in the offense figures to remain minor if the rest of the receiving corps is healthy.

Ready to go Sunday

Conley (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Analysis: The 28-year-old was considered questionable with the hip issue but will return from the one-game absence. Conley should work in a more limited snap share since DJ Chark, Laviska Shenault and Keelan Cole are all currently healthy.

Dec 6, 2020 8:38 AM EST


Questionable for Sunday

Conley (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

Analysis: Conley missed last week's loss to the Browns due to the hip issue, but he may be able to play against the Vikings this weekend. If available, the 28-year-old could be pushed back to a more limited role with DJ Chark, Laviska Shenault and Keelan Cole all healthy.

Dec 4, 2020 10:11 AM EST


Limited at Thursday's practice

Conley (hip) will be a limited participant in Thursday's practice, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

Analysis: For the second day in a row, Conley and DJ Chark (hip) -- who both sat out last week's loss to the Browns -- had their reps capped in practice. The Jaguars will release their final Week 13 injury report Friday, at which time a better sense of Conley's availability for Sunday's game in Minnesota should become known. If active for that contest, Conley would be working with his third different quarterback of the season, as Mike Glennon is slated to draw a second straight start even though Gardner Minshew (thumb) is healthy again.

Limited to start week

Conley (hip) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Analysis: Conley was unavailable against the Browns in Week 12 despite upgrading to limited practice prior to the game, so his status for Sunday's upcoming game in Minnesota remains murky. On an positive note for Jacksonville's receiving corps, DJ Chark (ribs) returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday.

Dec 2, 2020 2:07 PM EST


Unavailable Week 12

Conley (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Analysis: The veteran wideout was unable to practice this week due to the hip injury and won't be suiting up Sunday versus Cleveland. DJ Chark (ribs) will also be sidelined, likely leaving Laviska Shenault (hamstring) and Keelan Cole to operate as Jacksonville's top wideouts.

Nov 27, 2020 10:23 AM EST


Practice status improves

Conley (hip) was limited during Thursday's practice session, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Analysis: The 28-year-old receiver sat out Wednesday's practice session entirely, meaning this recent report strengthens the odds Conley is able to fight through his hip issue during Week 12. Conley recorded just one reception on four targets last Sunday against the Steelers, though no injury issue was reported postgame. He appears to be trending towards an active designation with a Week 12 home game against the Browns approaching.

Nov 26, 2020 1:14 PM EST


Misses practice Wednesday

Conley (hip) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Conley may have picked up this injury in last week's loss to the Steelers, as he logged a 64 percent snap share, his lowest total since Week 7. DJ Chark (ribs) also didn't practice Wednesday, while Laviska Shenault (hamstring) returned to the field for the first time in two weeks. With uncertainty across the board, Conley could start this Sunday against the Browns if neither Chark nor Shenault are active.

Nov 25, 2020 2:37 PM EST


Catches one pass

Conley caught one of four targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 27-3 loss to Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Jake Luton compiled only 151 yards on 37 pass attempts while throwing four interceptions, and there was minimal production from the offense besides James Robinson. Conley has played 37-plus offensive snaps in each of the past three games with Laviska Shenault (hamstring) banged up, and he has 12 catches for 108 yards during that stretch. The veteran can be reliable upon as a fantasy option, even with the increased playing time.

Team's No. 1 target in road loss

Conley secured four of his eight targets for 43 receiving yards during Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Conley tied DJ Chark with a team-high seven receptions last Sunday in a loss to Houston, though Chark yielded a touchdown and 146 yards to the former Chief's 52 yards with no TD. This Sunday against the Packers, Conley stood as the stand-alone leader with eight targets, though both Keelan Cole (47 yards, one TD) and Chark (56 yards) outpaced him in receiving production. Conley has attracted eight targets in each of Jake Luton's first two career starts after only once reaching that number Weeks 1 through 7. If Laviska Shenault (hamstring) returns from injury ahead of next Sunday's matchup against Pittsburgh, Conley could experience a reduction to his workload.

Nov 15, 2020 4:31 PM EST


Set for increased role

Coach Doug Marrone said he's comfortable with Conley filling in for Laviska Shenault (hamstring) against the Packers on Sunday, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

Analysis: Conley saw his highest snap count since Week 3 last week against the Texans and had a season-high seven catches for 58 yards with the rookie Shenault exiting early with an injury. The veteran wideout isn't nearly as versatile as the rookie, but he can be a decent option on the outside. Conley showed good rapport with quarterback Jake Luton in his first the rookie's first start last week and should have a sizable snap share Sunday.

Nov 13, 2020 1:11 PM EST


Makes seven receptions vs. Texans

Conley caught seven of eight targets for 52 yards during Sunday's 27-25 loss to the Texans.

Analysis: Conley finished second on the team in all major receiving categories as he topped 50 receiving yards for the second time this season. He did little of note outside his long gain of 21 yards but still displayed a solid rapport with replacement quarterback Jake Luton. While Luton is expected to start again next Sunday against the Packers and could continue to look Conley's way, the wideout shouldn't be considered a reliable fantasy option until he proves otherwise.

Nov 8, 2020 3:17 PM EST


Hauls in first TD in loss

Conley caught one of two targets for a 28-yard touchdown in Sunday's 39-29 loss to the Chargers.

Analysis: The veteran receiver's first touchdown of the season gave the Jaguars their last lead of the afternoon late in the third quarter, as the Bolts went on to score the game's final 17 points. It's the second straight game in which Conley has caught only one pass, and he's seen just 10 targets from Gardner Minshew over the last four contests as the Jags' No. 4 wideout. Jacksonville could shake up its passing game during its Week 8 bye, however, as Minshew's job security is shaky following six straight losses.

Oct 26, 2020 7:24 AM EST


Catches one pass

Conley caught one of two targets for six yards during Sunday's 34-16 loss to the Lions.

Analysis: The 27-year-old and rookie Collin Johnson each played 15 offensive snaps, though the rookie didn't receive a look from Gardner Minshew. DJ Chark, Laviska Shenault and Keelan Cole have clearly established themselves as Jacksonville's top-three wideouts, leaving Conley and Johnson to fill depth roles while the trio remain healthy.

Oct 19, 2020 9:27 AM EST


Totals 58 yards

Conley caught both his targets for 58 yards during Sunday's 30-14 loss to the Texans.

Analysis: The 27-year-old again had a minor role in Jacksonville's aerial attack despite Gardner Minshew attempting 49 passes, though his 51-yard reception during the fourth quarter made it his most productive game of the season. Conley caught only one pass for six yards in the season opener, but over the last four games he's averaging three receptions for 46 yards. Conley could see some more playing time depending on the severity of DJ Chark's ankle injury, though he still only caught three of eight targets for 34 yards during Chark's previous absence Week 3.
