The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without their top wide receiver in Week 15 when they travel to face the Oakland Raiders. D.J. Chark injured his ankle last week and has been formally ruled out for Sunday. His status for Week 16 is uncertain.

Chark’s injury came late on Sunday after another strong performance. He finished the game with nine receptions for 75 yards. Dede Westbrook was second on the team in targets, with Keelan Cole and Chris Conley next on the list for receivers.

Fantasy football analysis: Jaguars wide receivers

Westbrook is likely to see the largest share of targets among the Jaguars receivers. The Raiders have not been particularly good defending wide receivers, giving up the 13th most fantasy points to the position. Westbrook is worth a start in mid- to deep-sized leagues. Conley only had one catch last week, but was targeted at least five times each of the previous six weeks. He’s a gamble, but in deeper leagues, he’s worth consideration.
