Top 25 Jacksonville Jaguars plays of 2016: Marqise Lee comes down with it vs. Lions

In at No. 8 is another Marqise Lee catch — this time against the Detroit Lions.

Marqise Lee had a breakout year in 2016 and his game against the Detroit Lions, while not his most productive, showed he can contribute on a week in, week out basis. He caught four of eight targets for 52 yards and a touchdown — the above beauty of a highlight.

Last year, Lee proved to the Jacksonville Jaguars that he can fill in as the No. 2 receiver on the outside — replacing Allen Hurns, who was injured for the last six games of the season. He showed good hands, ability to get off the press, first-class route-running, and dexterous mobility.

He showed signs that he is capable of being an impactful wide receiver in this league. Lee's quickness is something all defensive coordinators should be aware of, if not, they are in for a rude awakening.

Lee proved last year that he can be productive. With Leonard Fournette in the backfield, and Hurns returning, this may allow fewer opportunities for Lee — but in the end its all up to Lee to prove he can be an impact player for the Jaguars.

Let’s hope we see more of these types of catches for Lee in 2017. I’m sure he is.
