Which Jaguars WR Will Step Up?

The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of the worst passing offenses in the National Football League. I won't being up the reasons because we've beat that horse beyond death. What the Jaguars do need however is a wide receiver to step up. It doesn't matter who it is, just someone. Last week, it was Jarett Dillard and Chastin West. Dillard has done nothing but catch the football when it's thrown to him, but his role has been minimal much of the season. Dillard caught a bullet from Blaine Gabbert in the middle of the field last week for a big gainer and caught another touchdown from Gabbert on a route he beat his man off the line. Last week, Dillard was targeted twice and caught both passes.

Chastin West on the other hand was the most targeted Jaguars receiver last week. West was picked up weeks ago off the Green Bay Packers practice squad and hasn't seen a ton of action. Last Sunday however, he was targeted a team leading five times, catching 3 passes for 39 yards. He showed the ability to get inside on the slant route and catch the football. The normal wide receiver mainstays of Mike Thomas and Jason Hill combined for just two total targets in the game and combined for 1 catch for 1 yard.

So, who's going to step up against the Browns?
