Jacksonville was in desperate need of depth at wide receiver after losing star Allen Robinson for the season to a torn ACL. With Oklahoma product Dede Westbrook also on IR, the Jaguars will plug McCaffrey in as their fifth wide receiver behind Marqise Lee, Allen Hurns, Arrelious Benn, and UDFA Keelan Cole.

The Jaguars enjoyed a surprisingly strong start to the season when they toppled the Texans 29-7 on Sunday. Rookie Leonard Fournette did most of the damage with 100 rushing yards plus three catches for 24 yards while Hurns led all receivers with three grabs for 42 yards. If the Jaguars want to continue their winning ways, they’ll probably need to do more through the air going forward.
