Cardinals signed WRs Jarett Dillard and Robert Gill.

Dillard caught 29 passes for the Jaguars in 2011, but was out of football last season. He'll fight for a spot on special teams. Gill is an Arena League veteran going on 29. He's the longest of long-shots.

Lions waived WR Jarett Dillard.

Still only 26, Dillard is skilled enough to hang around in the NFL, but simply couldn't crack Detroit's deep receiver corps. He caught only two passes for 13 yards in three preseason games. He might not be an immediate waiver claim, but should appear in a game at some point this season. He's an adept special teamer.

Lions signed WR Jarett Dillard to a one-year contract.

Modestly talented but dogged by injuries in his career, the 26-year-old Dillard can play special teams and profiles as a No. 4 NFL receiver. He's entering a deep group in Detroit, obviously, and will be hard pressed to make the club.

Jaguars waived WR Jarett Dillard.

Dillard was on the bubble even before Jacksonville brought aboard Laurent Robinson, Lee Evans and Justin Blackmon, so his release is hardly a surprise. The 2009 fifth-round pick was given a chance to start down the stretch last season, but responded by catching more than three passes just twice. Dillard finished the year with 29 grabs for 292 yards and a score after missing all of 2010 with a toe injury. Constantly banged up and lacking difference-making talent, Dillard's NFL future looks dim at age 26.

Jarett Dillard managed just one reception for eight yards in Week 17 versus the Colts.

Forced into the starting lineup due to Jason Hill's ineffectiveness, the 2009 fifth-rounder topped 50 yards just once all season. Finishing with 29 receptions, 292 yards, and one touchdown, Dillard will have to fight for a roster spot in 2012.

Jarett Dillard caught five passes for 61 yards in the Jaguars' Week 16 loss to the Titans.

Dillard was an every-down receiver and did well to work back to the ball on a couple Blaine Gabbert scrambles. Still, he's done nothing to show us that he should be a starter in 2012. Dillard has now topped three catches just twice all season. The Jaguars must upgrade their receiving corps in the offseason.

Jarett Dillard caught just two passes for 12 yards against the Falcons in Week 15.

Dillard flunked his audition for a 2012 starting role, dropping a pass and muffing a punt return that led to a Michael Turner touchdown. He's unworthy of a roster spot even in the deepest of Dynasty leagues.

Jarett Dillard, Kassim Osgood and Chastin West are expected to be the Jaguars' top three wideouts in Thursday's game against the Falcons.

The Jaguars' receiving corps was bad enough before Mike Thomas (concussion) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) went down. Now they are down to borderline NFL players and special teamers. Even the most desperate of owners can do better than rolling the dice on this passing game.
Wed, Dec 14, 2011 09:41:00 AM

Jaguars WR Jarett Dillard caught five passes for 45 yards in the team's Week 14 win over the Buccaneers.

Mike Thomas (concussion) and rookie Cecil Shorts (hamstring) went out with in-game injuries, and Dillard was the last man standing for Jacksonville. Chastin West and Kassim Osgood were the only other healthy wideouts for much of the game, and neither cleared 25 yards. Continue to avoid the Jaguars' passing game when they visit the Falcons in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 11, 2011 05:00:00 PM

Jarett Dillard caught just two of his seven targets for 14 yards in Monday's loss to the Chargers.

Dillard supposedly has "big play ability," but we'd never know in Blaine Gabbert's incompetent attack. Add Dillard to the list of receivers you don't care about in Jacksonville.
Tue, Dec 6, 2011 12:39:00 AM

WR Jarett Dillard was working with the starters at Thursday's practice.

For now, it looks like Dillard has been tabbed as the man to replace waived Jason Hill in the starting lineup. If that sticks, we'd expect Cecil Shorts to rotate in plenty. Still, this Jags' passing game is one to avoid in fantasy. Blaine Gabbert is completing just 48.5 percent of his passes and has thrown six touchdowns all year.

Jaguars WR Jarett Dillard has regained his speed and explosiveness after two seasons cut short by lower-leg injuries.

"I think he's faster than ever," said coordinator Dirk Koetter. "He looks real explosive." The only player in college football history to catch more than 20 touchdowns in a season twice, Dillard is battling rookie Cecil Shorts for the No. 3 receiver role. Shorts has also impressed onlookers with his early-camp work.
Wed, Aug 3, 2011 01:13:00 AM

According to Jaguars.com's John Oehser, the coaching staff still believes WR Jarett Dillard possesses "big-play ability" after two seasons lost to injury.

An obscenely productive college receiver with great hands and outstanding leaping ability, Dillard did enter the league with that big-play ability. As long as he stays healthy, he should have the clear upper hand on rookie Cecil Shorts for the No. 3 receiver role.

ESPN AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky believes the Jaguars still have "high hopes for a healthy Jarett Dillard."

Dillard's first two seasons have been ruined by a broken ankle and a stress fracture in his toe. At this point, it looks like the Jags will concentrate on defense in free agency, leaving Dillard to battle rookie Cecil Shorts for the slot receiver job. That position holds no fantasy value in Dirk Koetter's offense.
