ANALYSIS: Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Keelan Cole caught seven passes for 186 yards and a touchdown against the Texans on Sunday. Cole now has a touchdown catch in three consecutive games, has caught 13 of his last 15 targets, and has a 30 yard reception in each of his last three games. He is averaging 19 yards per catch this season and has 607 yards on 32 catches this season.

Allen Hurns has missed the last few games for Jacksonville and Marqise Lee was injured in Sunday's game as well, making Cole and Dede Westbrook the two best options in the receiving game. Cole was the only Jaguars' receiver that was over five targets on Sunday and the effective passing of Blake Bortles has put Cole in a place to thrive. The other issue for fantasy owners that are considering Cole is that Leonard Fournette was injured last week as well and, if Fournette is healthy, the Jags will run the ball more next week.

Cole and the Jaguars will play the 49ers (who allow the 14th-most points to fantasy WR) and uncertainty in the Jaguars' receiving corps makes Cole attractive. We all saw what Cole can do when he is the primary receiver for Bortles and, if Hurns and Lee miss another game, it is likely that he gets a ton of work as well. Cole is just the lottery ticket that fantasy owners are looking for and he is a strong flex play if Lee and Hurns are out against San Francisco.
