Keelan Cole: Early waiver wire option in Week 7

Keelan Cole posted his fourth career game of 100+ receiving yards in Sunday’s loss to the Lions.

The Jacksonville Jaguars’ top receiver is D.J. Chark Jr., but Keelan Cole has been the most productive pass catcher so far in 2020. Cole caught six passes for 143 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 6 and leads the Jaguars in receiving yards (362). He’s tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns (3) and could be a desirable waiver wire target ahead of Week 7.

Cole is 29 percent owned in Yahoo fantasy leagues and isn’t only worth picking up in deep leagues. Gardner Minshew II is among the league leaders in passing attempts and has favored Cole in scoring situations recently. If Jacksonville continues to let the second-year signal-caller air it out Cole will get plenty of opportunities to continue performing at a high level.
