The 49ers waived Marqise Lee.
This is a surprise after Lee was recently signed. He's been out of football for a couple of years due to injury and a COVID-19 opt-out, but another opportunity to win a roster spot with a team should come along soon.
Marqise Lee is signing with the 49ers.
The former Jaguars receiver has not played since early 2019 after a torn ACL and then a 2020-opt out after signing with the Patriots, but he lands in a very good spot to potentially win a nice role on offense behind top two wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel this season. The 2012 Biletnikoff Award winner while at USC will return to the West Coast with a shot to play for a contender.
The Patriots released Marqise Lee.
After New England added Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne during free agency, this isn't a surprise. Lee opted out of last season, but the former second-round pick shouldn't had too much trouble landing with a new team if he plans to play in 2021.
Marqise Lee is opting out of the 2020 season.
Lee signed with the Patriots earlier this year, but he had a daughter in February and is making this decision out of caution for his family. New England should have their starting trio set with Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry, and Mohamed Sanu, but Lee was a solid low-risk flier that will now hope to make the team in 2021.
The Patriots are signing Marqise Lee to a one-year deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Lee was recently released by Jacksonville, and he somewhat surprisingly was able to find a landing spot—and a good one at that—before the draft. As we stated when he was released, Lee's biggest issue is health more than talent, and he will have a shot to earn legitimate WR3 value if he can stay on the field and earn the trust of New England's coaching staff and quarterback. The Patriots will also likely draft a wideout to compete behind Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu, N'Keal Harry, and Lee.
The Jaguars are releasing Marqise Lee, according to Ian Rapoport.
Lee is said to be fully healthy after what was essentially his second consecutive lost season, but it would be a surprise if he signed elsewhere before the draft with so many upcoming rookies for teams to target. That said, talent has never been the question for the USC product, and he should get a chance to earn a starting job if he can stay healthy this summer. Lee totaled 174 receptions, 2,184 yards, and eight touchdowns since being drafted by the Jags in the 2014 NFL Draft. Jacksonville is a team that could potentially target a wideout in the first round on Thursday night with two selections at their disposal.
The Jaguars placed Marqise Lee (shoulder) on injured reserve.
This is more unfortunate injury luck for Lee, who has ended each of the last two seasons on injured reserve. Lee's season ends with three receptions for 18 yards, as he struggled making a consistent impact when on the field coming off last year's knee injury. Lee turns just 28 next month and is under contract with Jacksonville for the next three seasons, but they could potentially get out of the contract and go in another direction. We hope to see Lee back and 100% in 2020.
Marqise Lee (shoulder) is officially questionable to return for the Jaguars.
Lee had to be helped up after suffering the shoulder injury. Hopefully the veteran receiver is able to return to the field after having such bad injury luck the last couple of years. We'll update you as more information becomes available on Lee's status.
Marqise Lee (ankle) is considered week-to-week, according to Ian Rapoport.
Lee left Sunday's game with the injury, but it's "minor to moderate," which is good news. The USC product will likely slide back in as the No. 4 receiver behind D.J. Chark, Dede Westbrook, and Chris Conley when he returns.
Marqise Lee (foot) is questionable to return for the Jaguars.
Lee does not appear able to put much pressure on his foot, and he's currently getting a lot of help on his way to the locker room. We'll let you know if Lee happens to return, but consider him unlikely to return. Before leaving, Lee had a one-yard carry against the Saints.
Marqise Lee (knee) was officially a full participant in today's practice.
After missing Week 2 against the Texans, it looks like Lee should be ready to go for Thursday night. Lee isn't a highly recommended fantasy option in a crowded receiving corps for a potential defensive battle.
Marqise Lee (knee) will not play against the Texans.
Lee saw limited action in the opener, but he’s not making the trip to Houston for Week 2. The Jaguars have Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley, and D.J. Chark locked in as their top three receivers.
Marqise Lee (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 2.
Lee played in the season opener but had no catches, but he wasn’t listed on the injury report prior to the game. We’ll see if he’s able to suit up against the Texans on Sunday. The Jags kick off at 1:00 PM ET.
Marqise Lee (knee) has been taken off the PUP list.
Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone says that Lee will be practicing today. Lee is nearly 12 months removed from his serious knee injury suffered last season, and he'll now work himself back into the offense with new quarterback Nick Foles. If Lee gets up to speed quickly, he could become the go-to target for Foles, but for now he should probably start most fantasy leagues on the waiver wire.
Marqise Lee is on the PUP list to start training camp.
Ideally Lee would’ve been ready to go at the start of camp after his knee injury suffered last preseason, but it was a serious injury that the Jaguars won’t rush him back from. The good news is Lee can be taken off the PUP list at any time. He’ll be in the mix as Nick Foles’ potential No. 1 target if he can get on the field ahead of Week 1.
The Jaguars are placing Marqise Lee (knee) on injured reserve.
This is according to multiple reports, and it's not a surprise. Lee suffered a serious knee injury in Saturday night's preseason game against the Falcons after taking a hit to the knee on a reception, suffering ligament damage. We'll see if more word comes out on the exact severity of the injury, but hopefully it's a clean tear that will allow him to get back on the field at full strength next summer. The good news is Lee just signed a four-year, $38 million contract in the offseason, but this still obviously comes at a bad time with the Jaguars attempting to compete for a Super Bowl in 2018. We wish Lee luck in his recovery. Keelan Cole, Dede Westbrook, and Donte Moncrief are now expected to be Jacksonville's top three receivers this season.
Marqise Lee suffers apparent lower leg injury in preseason game.
On a first-quarter reception over the middle against the Falcons, Lee took a shot to the knee and was in obvious immediate pain. Lee appeared to be holding his knee, and he remained down until the cart came out to take him off the field. Hopefully it's not as bad as it looks, but this could be a serious injury for Jacksonville's number one receiver. The Jaguars have a deep receiving group to overcome any potential long-term absence for Lee, but he was probably Blake Bortles' most-trusted receiver. Lee just received a four-year, $34 million contract this offseason.
Marqise Lee is re-signing with the Jaguars, according to NFL Network.
Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network both tweeted the news simultaneously, and this is a signing that can become official today since Lee is currently under contract with the Jaguars. Though they weren't able to keep Allen Robinson around, the Jaguars were able to retain fellow 2014 second-rounder Lee (Robinson and Lee were both drafted in the second round by Jacksonville in 2014) to keep the group that got to the AFC Championship Game last year together. Lee should be a reliable target for Blake Bortles once again in 2018, and he could push for his first 1,000-yard season if he stays healthy.
Marqise Lee gets eight targets in playoff loss.
Lee received a team-high eight targets in the AFC Championship loss to New England, catching four passes for 41 yards. Lee is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason, but he's been a productive player for the Jags over the past two seasons in particular. Jacksonville does have a deep receiving group, though, and Allen Robinson is also scheduled to become a free agent, so Lee's status is very much in the air. He might opt to go elsewhere if he hits the open market.
Marqise Lee caught three passes for 28 yards in Sunday’s win over Pittsburgh.
Lee was the only wide receiver with more than one reception, but Jacksonville did plenty on offense with 45 points in the 45-42 upset victory. The Jags will look to knock off New England next week to advance to Super Bowl LII.
Marqise Lee held without a reception in playoff win.
He did rush once for five yards. Lee didn't really have a chance to get going with Blake Borltes struggling through the air, but he will look to be more involved next week in Pittsburgh.
Marqise Lee (ankle) is active against the Bills.
Lee missed the last three games of the regular season, but he wasn’t going to miss his first opportunity in the playoffs. The Jags have a deep receiving group that has stepped up this season, but Lee is expected to be in his usual starting role for the Wild Card matchup. He should be a high-floor option.
Marqise Lee (ankle) is questionable for Sunday against Buffalo.
Like running back LeSean McCoy on the other side for the Bills, Lee missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday before getting in a limited participation today. Reports emerged that Lee is expected to play in the Wild Card matchup, and he'll probably tough it out for the opportunity to play postseason football. Lee's game status will be official by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.
Marqise Lee (ankle) is expected to play on Sunday.
Lee didn't practice yesterday, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says the belief is Lee will play for the Wild Card game against the Bills even if he doesn't practice all week. It's playoff time, so it would not be surprising if the fourth-year receiver did everything he could to get out there with his team for his first postseason game.
Marqise Lee (ankle) did not practice today.
It's only Wednesday, so Lee still has some time to get ready before Sunday's playoff matchup against the Bills. However, he is dealing with a high-ankle sprain and there's no guarantee he'll be able to get to the point where he'll be healthy enough to help the team.
Marqise Lee (ankle) is officially out for Week 17.
This was fully expected, and Lee would do well to make it back for the first round of the playoffs. The good news is Allen Hurns will be back on Sunday for the Jags after a six-game absence. Hopefully Lee is out there in two weekends from now for Jacksonville.
Marqise Lee (ankle) did not practice today.
It would be a major surprise if Lee played this week against the Titans, but we'll update you if he works his way up to a limited practice.
Marqise Lee (ankle) did not practice today.
This isn't a surprise, as Lee's ankle injury is expected to keep him out at least this week and potentially until the playoffs. We'll update you if Lee works his way up to a limited participant in practice before week's end.
Marqise Lee (ankle) has been ruled out for the rest of the game against Houston.
Lee was injured early in the game, and he's finally been ruled out late in the third quarter. He reportedly couldn't put any pressure on the ankle, so hopefully the injury isn't as bad as it sounds. Lee didn't have any receptions before leaving. Consider him on the doubtful side of things for Week 16, as the Jags might have an eye on having him healthy for the playoffs.
Marqise Lee leaves game with an ankle injury.
Lee appeared to get rolled up on a bit, and he was in some pain. Jacksonville is already thin at receiver with Allen Hurns still out with a high-ankle sprain, so hopefully Lee's injury isn't too bad. We'll update you as more information becomes available.
Marqise Lee has productive day as Jaguars improve to 9-4.
Lee caught five passes for 65 yards in the win over Seattle. Even with rookies Keelan Cole (3/99/1) and Dede Westbrook (5/81/1) having big games, Lee was able to have a solid game of his own. He and the Jags will look to keep it up next Sunday against Houston, and the former USC receiver is worth considering as a FLEX option.
Marqise Lee scores in Week 13.
Lee paced the team in receiving against the Colts, catching seven of ten targets for 86 yards and a touchdown (all team highs in the game). This was a very good bounce-back for Lee, who had to contend with Patrick Peterson and company against the Cardinals last week. However, next week against Seattle is a pretty difficult matchup—but Lee still offers solid upside in fantasy lineups.
Marqise Lee gets shadowed by Patrick Peterson in Week 12 loss.
Lee caught just one pass for 13 yards. Things will get significantly easier next Sunday against the Colts, and Lee will be back on the FLEX radar with Dede Westbrook giving the defense another wideout to worry about. Lee went for 4/72 in Week 7 in Indianapolis.
Marqise Lee (knee) was limited in today's practice.
Lee has been limited over the last several weeks but has not missed a game. He'll be out there on Sunday versus the Cardinals, but we'll update you if something pops up or if he's listed on the official injury report for the game when it's released Friday.
Marqise Lee gets nine targets against Cleveland.
As he's been over the few weeks, Lee has been the primary target for Blake Bortles and the Jaguars. Lee hauled in five passes for 45 yards in the Jaguars victory. He'll have what might be his most difficult matchup of the season next week against the Cardinals, as Patrick Peterson is likely to cover him for most of the day, making Lee a weaker FLEX option for Week 11.
Marqise Lee is off the injury report.
As usual, Lee has been a limited participant in practice throughout the week, but this time he's not on the injury report for the game. Lee will be ready to go against the Browns in a potentially snowy Cleveland, and he should offer a high floor even in the windy and cold conditions.
Marqise Lee (knee) was limited in practice today.
Lee hasn't been a full participant in practice since Week 6, but he continues to get in one or two limited practices per week before playing on Sundays. He might be listed as questionable when the injury report is released tomorrow, but expect Lee to be out there versus Cleveland this week.
Marqise Lee scores for second straight week.
Lee was targeted a team-high 11 times against the Chargers, catching six passes for 55 yards and a touchdown in the win. Lee's touchdown came late in the third quarter on a great catch while sprinting to the right boundary in the end zone, and he scored a two-point conversion right after on a nice comeback catch at a similar spot in the end zone. Lee also drew a bonehead taunting penalty for what appeared to be him taunting for nothing, as no pass interference was called on the play. Over the last four games, Lee has at least 70 yards or a touchdown, so he'll be a good FLEX option against Cleveland in Week 11.
Marqise Lee (knee) is active for the Jaguars.
Lee was limited in practice during the week, but he's been like that for the last few weeks now and continues to play on game days. Considering he's had at least 70 yards in each of the last three games, Lee is a solid FLEX option today versus the Chargers.
Marqise Lee gets 12 targets against the Bengals.
Lee caught eight passes for 75 yards and a touchdown in Jacksonville's Week 9 victory. The touchdown came on a slant route to cap a 96-yard drive and was Lee's first of the season. This makes three-straight weeks with at least 70 yards for the fourth-year receiver, and he's on pace for 64 receptions, 876 yards, and two touchdowns this season—which would all be career highs. Next week against the Chargers isn't an easy matchup, but Lee is getting a good amount of looks right now.
Marqise Lee plays well in Week 7.
Lee caught four of six targets for 72 yards in a Jaguars' blowout win against the Colts. The long of the day for Lee was 45 yards, as he continues to make big plays for Blake Bortles—Lee is averaging 15.1 yards per reception this season. He has yet to score this year, but Lee remains a solid play when the Jags have good matchups.
Marqise Lee (knee) is officially active for the Jaguars.
Lee gets a good matchup against the Colts and is in the FLEX conversation. His presence is a positive for the entire offense, especially with starting running back Leonard Fournette (ankle) out.
Marqise Lee (knee) is questionable for Week 7.
Lee didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he was reportedly out there at practice in at least a limited capacity today. The fourth-year receiver will likely tough it out and play against the Colts, but be sure to check back in Sunday morning to make sure.
Marqise Lee (knee) missed second straight practice.
There's still time for Lee to get ready for Sunday, but he's looking very iffy right now. We'll see if he practices tomorrow and if he's listed as questionable, doubtful, or off the official injury report for the game.
Marqise Lee gets six touches in Week 6.
Lee had 100 total yards against the Rams, catching five of ten targets for 83 yards and gaining 17yards on one carry in the game. He has at least 49 yards in four of the last five games and appears to be the clear number one guy for Blake Bortles with Allen Robinson (ACL) done for the year. He might have some down weeks in an extremely run-heavy attack, but Lee is a FLEX option against Indy in Week 7.
Marqise Lee leads Jacksonville in Week 5 receiving.
Lee caught two of four targets for 49 yards with a long of 31 against the Steelers. If things go as the Jaguars want, the receivers won't get many looks this season in a run-centric gameplan. Lee is worth rostering, but his upside might not be reached unless Jacksonville is playing from behind in games.
Marqise Lee caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets.
Blake Bortles completed just 15/35 passes against New York, and his inaccuracy issues are going to continue to hurt Lee and others. The USC product is on pace for just 636 scoreless yards. He and the Jags get Pittsburgh in Week 5.
Marqise Lee leads Jags in receiving in Week 3.
Lee caught four of a team-high seven targets for 65 yards. He couldn't cash in on any of Blake Bortles' four touchdowns, but it was still a productive day for him. He should offer a high floor next week against the Jets.
Marqise Lee caught seven passes for 76 yards in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.
Lee is the best fantasy option on the Jaguars besides Leonard Fournette, and he should be rostered in all leagues as the team's #1 receiver. Blake Bortles could make him a frustrating play, though, and Lee should stay on the bench for next Sunday's matchup with the Ravens.
Marqise Lee was not targeted in Week 1 against the Texans.
The Jaguars only threw 21 times, but Lee was not a target on any of them. It's likely just a one-time thing, especially with Lee set to be the number one receiver for Jacksonville after Allen Robinson's unfortunate knee injury. Lee is one of the better waiver wire pickups this week.
Jaguars receiver Marqise Lee (ankle) returned to practice today.
Lee suffered a high ankle sprain about two weeks ago, so it's a bit surprising to see him back out there already. Hopefully he didn't rush back, but at least there's not much question he'll be good to go for Week 1 against the Texans. Currently, Lee is not getting drafted, but don't be surprised if he delivers solid fantasy value in 2017.
Jaguars WR Marqise Lee says he expects to be ready for Week 1.
Lee suffered a high ankle sprain last Sunday (six days ago) and is already out of his walking boot and walking without a limp, according to John Oehser of the team's official site. The smart thing to do is not rush Lee back and make sure he's 100% recovered from his injury so it doesn't linger all season. Given his injury, there are probably better options late in fantasy drafts than Lee.
Marqise Lee has a high-ankle sprain, according to Ian Rapoport.
High-ankle sprains can be lengthy injuries. As Rapoport says, Lee will try to get ready for the opening game of the regular season, but a "cautious approach could push it back." The best thing to do is get to 100%, as we've seen guys struggle when trying to come back from high-ankle sprains too early. Expect Lee to be out for the rest of the preseason as he tries to recover for Week 1. In the meantime, Allen Hurns will step up as the number two receiver opposite Allen Robinson. Lee might not be worth drafting in 10- or 12-team leagues if this injury keeps him out until the regular season, as he'll be missing a lot of practice time.
Marqise Lee's injury is not considered serious.
He was carted off at Jaguars' practice earlier today, but NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport are both reporting the injury is not serious. Thankfully, it sounds like Lee should be fine well in advance of the regular season opener. Playing in the third preseason game would be ideal.
Marqise Lee goes down with non-contact injury in practice.
It is apparently an ankle injury, and Lee was not able to put any weight on his foot and had to be carried to a cart. It doesn't sound good for the young receiver, although we have seen Giants WR Sterling Shepard be fine after what looked like a serious injury earlier in training camp. The Jaguars were counting on Lee to step up behind Allen Robinson this season after he enjoyed a mini breakout in 2016. Hopefully he turns out to be alright, but non-contact injuries are usually bad news.
Marqise Lee finishes breakout season with another productive game.
Lee had six catches for 86 yards against Indy. He had 63 receptions for 851 yards and three touchdowns on a bad Jaguars offense. Lee should enter next season as the number two receiver in the Jaguars offense, and it will be worth watching who the coach will be. Lee could take another step forward in 2017.
Marqise Lee (hip) listed as questionable.
The third year receiver should be good for Sunday against Indy. He'll be a decent FLEX option.
Marqise Lee throws touchdown and receives another in Jags win.
Lee caught a great 21-yard touchdown on a high pointed ball at the endzone in the Jaguars opening drive. Then Lee threw a touchdown to Blake Bortles later in the game. Lee's final line was three catches for 37 yards and a touchdown on seven targets, with a 20-yard touchdown pass. Lee has been performing for the Jags and isn't a bad FLEX option next week to end the season.
Marqise Lee tops 100 yards in 25-16 loss to the Vikings.
Lee caught five passes for 113 yards. Finally healthy, the emergence of Lee is probably the only bright spot on the offensive side of the ball for Jacksonville this season. He's a good FLEX for Week 15 against Houston.
Marqise Lee caught three passes for 34 yards and rushed twice for 10 yards as the Jaguars fell to the Broncos.
Lee didn't have much hope against the Broncos, especially with Blake Bottles under center. It is a good sign that Jacksonville is manufacturing touches for Lee, but he's not a fantasy option next week against Minnesota.
Marqise Lee leads Jaguars in receiving, scores in Week 12 loss.
Lee caught four passes for 37 yards, including a 20-yard 3rd quarter touchdown. He also rushed once for two yards. The Albino Tiger is someone that the Jags are getting more and more involved, and he's strung together a nice stretch of games. He's worth a pickup, but should be benched next week versus Denver.
Marqise Lee scores touchdown in Week 11 against Detroit.
Lee had four catches for 52 yards and a touchdown. That’s three straight weeks for Lee with at least 50 yards, and he has two touchdowns in that span. He has been outperforming Allen Hurns lately, and is worth an add to your roster. He’s best left out of your lineup in Week 12, however.
Marqise Lee again contributes in Week 10.
Lee had four catches for 50 yards against the Texans. In four of the last five games, Lee has at least 50 yards. Finally healthy this season, Lee has been a productive player for the Jags. He is a decent FLEX option, but you should be able to do better.
