Chris Conley: 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.

Chris Conley: 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.

Chris Conley: Playing time dwindles

Conley caught three of four targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 33-25 loss to the Bengals.

Analysis: The 27-year-old played only 21 offensive snaps during the contest, though his production remained in line with his numbers from previous weeks thanks to a 33-yard reception. Conley hasn't been involved enough in Jacksonville's offense to warrant fantasy consideration, especially now the DJ Chark (chest) is back from injury.

Chris Conley: Receives eight targets

Conley caught three of eight targets for 34 yards during Thursday's loss to the Dolphins.

Analysis: The 27-year-old led Jacksonville's wideouts in offensive snaps (53 of 66) and targets in the absence of DJ Chark (back/chest), but he was unable to turn it into significant production. It should have been as ideal situation for Conley with the Jaguars playing from behind most of the game, but RB James Robinson ended up being the only pass catcher to exceed 45 receiving yards. Conley has caught eight of 16 targets for 88 yards through three games and isn't a viable fantasy option, especially once Chark is back in the fold.

Chris Conley: Catches four passes

Conley caught four of seven targets for 48 yards during Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: The 27-year-old played only 16 offensive snaps in the season opener and caught one pass for six yards, but he was more involved Sunday as QB Gardner Minshew attempted 45 passes. Conley's seven targets tied for the team lead, though it's difficult to read much into it as Minshew spread the ball around, targeting nine different players at least three times. Conley hasn't shown enough involvement in the passing games through two contest to be considered for fantasy purposes.

Chris Conley: Limited role Week 1

Conley caught his only target for six yards during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Colts.

Analysis: The 27-year-old was listed as starter opposite DJ Chark on Jacksonville's first unofficial depth chart, but he played only 16 offensive snaps in the season opener, with Keelan Cole (33 snaps) and Laviska Shenault (31) both significantly more involved. Conley caught 47 passes for 775 yards and five touchdowns in 16 games last season, but his 2020 campaign is off to a rough start.

Chris Conley: Making impression in practice

Conley has made "splash" plays throughout training camp, according to Gene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union.

Analysis: Conley had a solid first season in Jacksonville and did enough for the team to pick up the 2020 option on his contract, but he doesn't appear especially likely to match last year's career highs of 866 snaps, 775 yards and 90 targets. The Jaguars also bring back DJ Chark, Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole, plus they added Laviska Shenault in the second round of the NFL Draft. While a strong showing this summer likely will allow him to retain the starting job, Conley won't necessarily have an every-down role, nor will he have job security if he fails to produce.

Chris Conley: Has option picked up

The Jaguars have exercised their option on Conley's contract for 2020, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Analysis: This was an easy decision for the Jags after Conley tallied a career-high 775 yards in the first season of a two-year, $4.6 million contract. His production largely was a matter of playing a ton of snaps for a team that ranked ninth in pass play percentage (61.9), but the price tag is friendly even if Conley is nothing more than a low-end starter. With DJ Chark serving as the top outside receiver and Dede Westbrook seemingly locked into a slot role, it won't come as any surprise if Conley faces competition for his starting job from a free-agent signing or a draft pick in 2020.

Chris Conley: Snags three passes Week 17

Conley caught three of six targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 38-20 win over Indianapolis.

Analysis: Conley essentially ended up working as the Jaguars' No. 2 wide receiver in 2019, but his inconsistent production -- seven games with two catches or less -- meant he was an unreliable fantasy option. The 27-year-old totaled 47 receptions for 775 yards and five touchdowns, all setting or tying career-high marks. Conley is under contract for 2020 at a modest $1.8 million ($2.8 million cap hit), but his roster spot isn't overly secure since if released he would count only $500K against the cap. D.J. Chark stepped up as a reliable wideout for the Jaguars this season, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the team attempt to upgrade the talent level behind him at the position.

Chris Conley: Snags big pass in loss

Conley caught two of five passes for 56 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-12 loss to Atlanta.

Analysis: The Falcons controlled the tempo for much of the game, but Conley helped jumpstart a would-be comeback early in the fourth quarter, busting up the sideline for a 42-yard touchdown. It was his third touchdown in his last two games after just two scores in his first 13 contests of 2019. He'll look to keep his scoring streak alive in the finale against the Colts, against whom Conley tied a season-high with six receptions and gained 58 yards in Week 11, albeit with Nick Foles throwing the passes.

Chris Conley: Grabs two TDs to down Raiders

Conley caught four of eight targets for 49 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: The Jaguars were down 16-6 in the fourth quarter when Gardner Minshew found Conley for a six-yard TD with 5:15 left on the clock, and then the duo connected again on a four-yard score inside the final minute. The fifth-year receiver doubled his touchdown total on the season with the performance, and if DJ Chark Jr.'s ankle injury keeps him sidelined another week, Conley could see more red-zone looks next Sunday in Atlanta.

Chris Conley: Held to one catch in defeat

Conley secured one of three targets for seven yards in the Jaguars' 45-10 loss to the Chargers on Sunday.

Analysis: As his final line implies, Conley was disappointingly a bit player in the passing attack Sunday, although it was a lackluster day for the offense as a whole. The speedster had dealt with an ankle issue earlier in the week, so perhaps that still affected him to an extent. Conley had notched no fewer than four receptions in four of the five games prior to Sunday, and he'll look to up his numbers back to that level at minimum in a Week 15 matchup against the Raiders.

Chris Conley: Finishes week with full practice

Conley (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice and won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Conley and fellow wideout DJ Chark (back) were both limited participants in the Jaguars' first two practices of the week, but the duo put to rest any concern about their statuses by turning in full showings Friday. Expect Conley to have a regular spot in the Jaguars' three-receiver sets, an arrangement that has netted him no fewer than five targets in any of the team's past six games.

December 6, 2019 2:09 PM EST

Chris Conley: Remains limited in practice

Conley (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Like Conley, fellow wideout DJ Chark (back) was also limited for the second day in a row, but there's little to suggest that either player is at risk of missing Sunday's game against the Chargers. Conley has seen steady volume in the Jaguars' passing attack of late, ranging between five and nine targets over the team's past six games.

Chris Conley: Logs limited practice

Conley was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: Conley appears to have picked up an ankle issue during Week 13's loss to the Buccaneers, during which he hauled in four of five targets for 57 yards. There's not yet any reason to worry that the speedy wideout is in danger of missing any time, and he'll have two more opportunities to practice in full ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Chargers. Conley offers the Jaguars' offense a key downfield threat, so his availability would be a notable boon for rookie signal-caller Gardner Minshew.

December 4, 2019 2:01 PM EST

Chris Conley: Four grabs in Week 13 loss

Conley brought in four of five targets for 57 yards in the Jaguars' 28-11 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Analysis: Conley finished with the second-highest receiving yardage tally of the day for the Jaguars in a game when coach Doug Marrone went back to rookie Gardner Minshew at quarterback to start the second half. The speedy Conley has at least four grabs in three straight games, and his five targets were actually his lowest since Week 6. Conley offers a coveted downfield dimension that always gives him a chance to pay off fantasy-wise on just one play, and he'll look to do just that versus the Chargers in Week 14.

December 1, 2019 2:48 PM EST

Chris Conley: Enters weekend minus designation

Conley (hamstring) was a full participant in Friday's practice and doesn't carry a designation into Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Analysis: A limited participant during the Jaguars' first two practices of Week 13, Conley looks like he'll be good to go this weekend after taking every rep Friday. The wideout has seen fairly consistent involvement in the Jacksonville passing attack lately, finishing with between seven and nine targets in each of the past five contests.

November 29, 2019 11:18 AM EST

Chris Conley: Limited at practice

Conley (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday.

Analysis: Conley was also listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday but it's unclear how serious the hamstring injury might be. Expect more information to surface following Friday's final injury report.

November 28, 2019 7:18 PM EST

Chris Conley: Catches four passes vs. Titans

Conely caught four of nine targets for 49 yards during Sunday's 42-20 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Conley's nine targets were his most in any game this season, tying him for most amount Jags wideouts alongside Dede Westbrook. He averaged just 12.3 yards per catch on a day when Nick Foles struggled to push the ball downfield, but it was encouraging nonetheless to see him so involved. Conley has quietly received at least seven targets in five straight games, but he's recorded more than four catches just once in that span and hasn't topped 60 receiving yards in his last three. Still, his role could afford him some fantasy utility in next week's favorable matchup with the Buccaneers.

November 25, 2019 5:51 AM EST

Chris Conley: Return to full practice

After logging a limited session Wednesday, Conley (hamstring) practiced fully Thursday, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: The same goes for DJ Chark (hamstring), which sets the stage for the duo to suit up for Sunday's game against the Titans. Dede Westbrook sat out Thursday's practice due to an illness, but we'd expect him to be available versus Tennessee and if that's the case, the Jaguars will have their top three wide receivers out there this weekend. Conley parlayed a season-high eight targets into six catches for 58 yards in Week 11's loss to the Colts. Prior to that, he'd been targeted seven times in three consecutive outings. While Chark (who saw 15 targets this past Sunday) remains the team's top wideout option, Conley -- who is averaging 17.9 yards a catch -- does at this stage see enough volume to be of some utility in deeper fantasy formats.
