WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole (knee) inactive for Week 1.

With Jamison Crowder also out, the Jets will rely on Elijah Moore for a huge role in his debut, and this also gives Denzel Mims a great chance to prove himself. Moore in particular is a great FLEX option.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole (knee) will be a game-time decision for Week 1.

Cole popped up on the injury report yesterday and was limited in practice with a knee issue, and he'll be a game-time call for this weekend's season opener. The Jets will already be without Jamison Crowder (COVID), so hopefully Cole is ready to go versus the Panthers.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole is signing with the Jets.

The Jets have now added Corey Davis and Cole to the receiving corps, so the reported talks with JuJu Smith-Schuster may not go much further. Cole might slide into the slot between Davis and Denzel Mims.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

The Jaguars tendered Keelan Cole at the second-round level.

This almost ensures Cole will not go anywhere in 2020, as the former undrafted receiver will be with Jacksonville for his fourth NFL season. The Jags have a lot of depth at wide receiver, but perhaps this tender indicates the team plans to use him more this year.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches four passes in Week 17.

Cole gained 45 yards on his four receptions versus the Texans. Cole's season ends with 38 receptions for 491 yards and one touchdown, a step back from his 42/748/3 line as an undrafted rookie in 2017. It was simply a bad season for Jacksonville, though, and Cole has the ability to bounce back next season. Cole could deliver fantasy value in a bounce-back season as a selection at the end of 2019 fantasy drafts.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole held without a catch in Week 16 win.

Cole was targeted twice. The second-year receiver unfortunately hasn't produced in 2018, but perhaps he will finish strong next week against the attackable Texans.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches three passes against the Titans.

Cole gained 55 yards on his three receptions in the Jags' Thursday night loss, and he had a 35-yard receptions on a deep ball where he made a nice catch in tight coverage. Cole has upside, but he's not yet consistent enough to trust in fantasy lineups during the playoffs.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches both targets in Week 13.

Cole gained 16 yards on his two receptions against the Colts. The second-year receiver hadn't had a reception the last three weeks, so he's not a fantasy option at the moment.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole held without a catch in loss to the Bills.

Cole was targeted twice, but his quiet season continues. While not his fault playing for a collapsing team/offense, the former undrafted free agent has been one of the biggest fantasy disappointments of the year. Cole should stay out of lineups in Week 13.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches two passes in Week 8.

Cole gained 18 yards on his two receptions against the Eagles, and he also had a fumble lost and a drop in the loss. The second-year receiver is in a bit of a slump right now, so he's not a highly-recommended fantasy option at the moment.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches two passes in Jaguars' loss.

Cole gained 21 yards on his two receptions against the Texans. The second-year receiver also had another drop, and his hands just haven't been consistent this season. Cole is in danger of losing playing time moving forward, and he's a risky fantasy option next week against the Eagles.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole leads Jaguars in Week 6 receiving.

Cole was targeted five times against the Cowboys, catching four passes for 41 yards. He also lost a fumble in the blowout defeat. Next week, Cole and the Jags will look to bounce back against the Texans, who Cole had seven receptions for 186 yards and a touchdown against last December.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches four passes against the Chiefs.

Cole gained 70 yards on his four receptions (ten targets) in the Week 5 loss. He's more of a deep-league FLEX option for now, but the ten targets are a positive sign, as it was tied for second on the team behind Donte Moncrief.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches two passes in Week 4.

Cole gained 15 yards on his two receptions (three targets), as Dede Westbrook (130 yards) and Donte Moncrief (109 yards, touchdown) did most of the damage among the Jacksonville receivers. Through four games, Cole is on pace for 68 receptions, 900 yards, and four touchdowns. Cole and the Jags face the Chiefs next week.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches five passes in Week 3.

Cole was targeted a team-high nine times against the Titans, but it wasn't a great game offensively for Jacksonville. Cole gained 40 yards on his five receptions in the loss. He'll look to bounce back in Week 4 against the Jets.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole goes off in win over the Patriots

Cole caught seven passes for 116 yards and a touchdown, with his two biggest plays coming on the same scoring drive. First, Cole made an unbelievable one-handed catch that he had to extend for in stride on the sideline, and then he finished off the series with a 24-yard touchdown on the boundary in the end zone. The 2017 undrafted free agent has been making plays since he entered the league, and his stock is climbing to every-week WR2/FLEX value. He could go off again against the beatable Tennessee secondary next Sunday.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole leads the Jaguars in Week 1 receiving.

Cole caught three-of-four targets against the Giants, gaining 54 yards, with a long of 31 yards. The second-year receiver is more of a deep-league FLEX at the moment, but it's possible the Jaguars need to keep up with New England's scoring next week, which could give Cole more opportunities through the air.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

The Jaguars believe Keelan Cole can be a huge factor at receiver for them.

After yesterday's training camp practice, the undrafted second-year receiver was the second offensive player to speak at the press conference, after only quarterback Blake Bortles—which doesn't necessarily mean he'll have a big role on offense, but it's worth noting. John Oehser of Jaguars.com writes it's obvious "the Jaguars like the second-year receiver from Kentucky Wesleyan, and there is strong belief...he can be a big-time presence in the receiving corps." Jacksonville has one of the league's most crowded receiving groups, with the high-priced Marqise Lee and Donte Moncrief expected to lead the way; and there's also 2017 fourth-round pick Dede Westbrook and 2018 second-round pick D.J. Chark. But Cole was very productive for the Jags last season, catching 42 passes for 784 yards (which led the team) and three touchdowns. He's someone to keep an eye on throughout the preseason.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches two passes in AFC Championship loss.

Cole gained 37 yards on his two receptions, including a spectacular catch by the sideline in tight coverage. The undrafted rookie had a really good first season in the NFL, and he'll certainly have a role with the Jaguars next season. He's not a recommended fantasy selection in 2017 drafts at the moment, but things could change if Marqise Lee and/or Allen Robinson leave in free agency.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches 45-yard pass in win over the Steelers.

It was his only reception of the game. Cole rose up over two defenders to set up a short-yardage touchdown in the second half. The undrafte rookie will look to get deep against the Patriots in the AFC Championship next Sunday.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches four passes in Week 17.

Cole gained 33 yards on his four receptions, and he lost a fumble in the loss to Tennessee. The undrafted rookie's regular season ends with a 42/748/3 line, which is very impressive. He'll look to make an impact in the postseason now.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole gets 13 targets in Jaguars' loss.

The Jaguars chucked the ball 50 times while playing from behind, so the entire passing offense benefited  form it numbers wise. Cole caught six passes for 108 yards in the Week 16 loss, making it two straight games with over 100 yards for the undrafted rookie. Cole will be a FLEX option if Allen Hurns (ankle) and Marqise Lee (ankle) both remain out next week.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole goes off in Jaguars' blowout victory.

Building on a big performance against the Seahawks in Week 14, Cole continued his ascension and had his first 100-yard receiving performance of the season, catching seven of nine targets for 186 yards and a touchdown. When Marqise Lee went down with an ankle injury, Cole stepped up as a big-time target for Blake Bortles and dominated against the Texans. The score came on an in-breaking route in the end zone, and Cole also added a 73-yard reception in the win. The undrafted rookie now has a touchdown in three-straight games, and he's been quite the find for the Jaguars this year. With Lee likely to miss more time, Cole is a strong waiver wire pickup this week.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches 75-yard touchdown in win over the Seahawks.

Cole was able to get deep in the third quarter, and Blake Bortles hit in right in stride for six. The rookie out of Kentucky finished with three receptions for 99 yards and the score. Cole has scored in two-straight games and gets a good matchup with the Texans next Sunday, but there are probably better options to consider in fantasy lineups.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole scores first career touchdown in Week 13.

It's great to see the undrafted rookie receiver get in the end zone in his first NFL season, as he's taken advantage of his opportunities and continues to contribute to the Jaguars. The score came on a corner route for 13 yards, and he had three receptions (on three targets) for 49 yards and a touchdown in the victory. Cole isn't a reliable fantasy option right now, but he's already a solid contributor in real life.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole caught two passes for 30 yards in Sunday's loss to Arizona.

Cole is still without a touchdown this year, but his best game of the season came in Week 7 against the Colts when he caught two passes for 64 yards. Still, he's not a fantasy option in the second meeting next Sunday.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches three passes in Week 11.

Cole gained 24 yards on his three receptions (six targets) against the Browns. The undrafted receiver will continue to have a role, but rookie Dede Westbrook will be the preferred play if you're looking for a big game from someone other than Marqise Lee (or Allen Hurns when he's healthy) from a Jaguars receiver.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole gets eight targets in Week 10.

The undrafted rookie caught three passes for 61 yards against the Chargers, but it could've been a bigger game if not for a deep ball that was just slightly overthrown on what would've been a touchdown. If Allen Hurns (leg) is out next week, Cole would be in the FLEX conversation against the Browns, particularly in deeper leagues.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches three passes in Week 9.

Cole caught three passes for 47 yards, including an insane one-handed catch over the middle for 28 yards. The undrafted rookie isn't a reliable fantasy option yet, but it's good to see him making an impact and making plays despite not having a high draft status.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches two passes in Week 7.

Cole was targeted three times against the Colts, gaining 64 yards on his two receptions, including a long of 52 yards. The 52-yarder was a deep ball, and it was one of three passes over 45 yards for the Jaguars in the game. It's great to see the undrafted rookie playing well, but he's not a recommended fantasy option yet in a run-heavy offense.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole gets two targets against the Rams.

Cole caught one pass for seven yards in the Jaguars' loss. The Colts are a good matchup in Week 7, but Cole isn't a recommended fantasy option.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole gets one target in Jags' win.

Cole had a four-yard reception but that was it in a game where Jacksonville threw the ball only 14 times. He's not a reliable fantasy option right now.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole had one reception in Week 3.

It was a 13-yard catch. He'll look to do more damage next week against the Jets.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole starts Week 3 of the preseason for Jacksonville.

With Marqise Lee (high ankle sprain) out for the exhibition against Carolina, Cole got an opportunity as a starter in the game. The undrafted rookie receiver had only one reception for four yards, and he did drop a perfect throw on a deep ball from Chad Henne. It was Cole's second big drop in two preseason games, but at least he's getting open. Cole will probably make the final roster for the Jaguars, and there will be other teams interested in claiming him if not.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole has impressive 31-yard punt return in preseason loss to Bucs.

Cole picked up where he left off in his first preseason game with the exciting return, but he unfortunately dropped a touchdown just moments later. He created good separation on the play, though, and is really showing well this month after he caught a 97-yard touchdown last week. The explosive rookie has a good chance of cracking the 53-man roster.

Keelan Cole | Raiders WR

Keelan Cole catches 97-yard touchdown in first NFL preseason game.

The undrafted rookie from Kentucky Wesleyan caught the long touchdown from Chad Henne in the second quarter. He ended up with two receptions for 108 yards and the touchdown. It's a great start for Cole, as he attempts to claim a roster spot on the Jags.
