The Jacksonville Jaguars might have lost their No. 1 receiver for the season.

Marqise Lee Aleksander Barkov Jersey , who led the team in receptions in 2017, injured his left knee in a 17-6 victory against Atlanta in the preseason Saturday night and could be out for the year.

Lee was carted off the field in the first quarter after Falcons cornerback Damontae Kazee went helmet-first into his knee and then twisted his leg. Lee fumbled on the play, but it was overturned because Kazee was flagged for leading with his helmet.

Coach Doug Marrone said "obviously it looked bad," adding that Lee will have tests Sunday to determine the extent of the injury. Teammates sounded resigned to Lee being sidelined an extended period, maybe even the entire season.

"That's tough," Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles said. "You hate to see anytime, especially in the preseason, and to a guy like that who's been through what he's been through and plays with the passion that he does, and everything that he's put into this team and getting ready for this season. ... It's tough to see."

Lee was clearly in pain as he got helped onto the cart. Teammates and coaches walked across the field to offer well-wishes as he left the field.

It was the kind of preseason injury that leaves everyone on both sidelines shaking their heads.

"At the end of the day, we've got to come together as a team, as a unit and pick up where he left off," fellow receiver Dede Westbrook said.

"Everybody's got to step up," Jaguars receiver Donte Moncrief added. "Everybody in the room's got to be ready to go, from the young guys to me. He was one of the big roles in the offense."

Lee had 56 catches for 702 yards and three touchdowns last season. He signed a four-year, $34 million contract in March that included $16.5 million guaranteed.

A second-round draft pick from USC in 2014 Patrick Maroon Jersey , Lee has 171 catches for 2,166 yards and eight touchdowns. He missed games because of various injuries in three of his four seasons.

If Lee misses time this fall, the Jaguars would rely on second-year pros Keelan Cole and Westbrook, one-year rental Moncrief and rookie DJ Chark.

WINLESS FALCONS

Atlanta managed 96 yards in the first half and 261 for the game. The Falcons have lost all three preseason games.

Matt Ryan completed 5 of 12 passes for 57 yards. Tevin Coleman ran seven times for 38 yards, with 22 of those coming on one scamper.

"When you're going against a good defense, that's how the game is going to shake out," Ryan said. "You're going to have your opportunities at times to make plays. I don't think we came away with all of them, but we certainly made some good ones as well."

The bright spots for Atlanta were two interceptions against Blake Bortles, who played into the third quarter and finished 17 of 23 for 204 yards. Bortles was picked once on a tipped ball and another on a pass that sailed wide of a receiver.

ANTHEM PROTEST

Jaguars All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey and Pro Bowl linebacker Telvin Smith remained in the locker room during the national anthem. Smith has skipped the anthem in each of the team's three preseason games. Ramsey was suspended for last week's exhibition at Minnesota, not for anything related to the anthem.

PRESEASON DEBUT

Falcons placekicker Matt Bryant made his preseason debut after sitting out the first two games with an undisclosed injury. The 43-year-old Bryant drilled a 47-yard field goal to cap the opening drive and later added a 33-yarder.

The Jaguars had two players make their preseason debut. 2017 All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell (calf) and defensive lineman Taven Bryan (abdomen), a first-round pick from Florida, missed the first two exhibitions. Bryan's best play was batting down a pass in the closing minutes.

SITTING OUT

Receiver Marvin Hall, guard Ben Garland, cornerback Desmond Trufant, safety Ricardo Allen and linebacker Deion Jones sat out for Atlanta with minor injuries.

The Jaguars were without six players: cornerback A.J. Bouye (illness) Ryan Miller Jersey , center Brandon Linder (knee), safety Ronnie Harrison (hamstring), linebacker Donald Payne (hip), defensive tackle Eli Ankou (knee) and defensive end Dawuane Smoot (foot).

UP NEXT

Atlanta hosts Miami to end the preseason Thursday.

Jacksonville plays at Tampa Bay on Thursday.

They're the hot names that everyone wants to know as they head into fantasy football drafts for the 2018 season 鈥?the unearthed gems and the deep values that can come out of nowhere to help you win your league and make you look smarter than everyone you are playing against.

But do "sleepers" even really exist in today's fantasy world?

There is so much information out there, making it difficult to find out a deep value performer without others in your league knowing about him. Still, it's about digging deeper than your opponents and figuring out where to find value.

RUNNING BACKS

ROB KELLEY, Washington: The unfortunate season-ending injury to Derrius Guice has created an opportunity for someone to step forward and seize an opportunity to carry the ball consistently. It's not going to be Chris Thompson, who does not have the frame to take the regular pounding that comes with more rushing attempts. Kelley and Samaje Perine will battle for the chance to replace Guice as the lead runner. Kelley has reportedly slimmed down prior to this season and can do a better job of creating his own running room behind a questionable offensive line. Kelley has flex potential to be the TD finisher for a respectable offense.

NYHEIM HINES, Indianapolis: Andrew Luck has never enjoyed a weapon like Hines before. The effervescent rookie has significant point-per-reception league upside as a player similar to Darren Sproles. Not only can Luck finally have a safety valve when he is in trouble, Hines will also make many plays for him from anywhere on the field. If the Colts can't establish a running game, Hines can act as a substitution or extension of a ground attack, much like Theo Riddick used to in Detroit.

LeGARRETTE BLOUNT, Detroit: There is a lot of initial buzz about rookie Kerryon Johnson so far, but he runs high and could expose himself to some injuries. Plus, the Lions have made an organizational commitment to being more physical 鈥?a philosophy Blount fits. Blount has been written off in the preseason before Brent Seabrook Jersey Kids , only to maintain fantasy relevance once the season starts for real. Even with Johnson in the picture, Blount could be a frequent goal line runner for a very productive offense.

WIDE RECEIVERS

CHRIS GODWIN, Tampa Bay: There's already talk that Godwin will seize a starting job in his second season. He is a big and fast target who should emerge as the top complement to Mike Evans. Godwin averaged 15.4 yards per catch last season, flashing his exciting potential during the first half of the season. DeSean Jackson is not going to recapture past form and Godwin will become a viable upside option.

MACK HOLLINS, Philadelphia: The Eagles are already dealing with Alshon Jeffery injury issues and their receiving depth otherwise is not too impressive, with the likes of retread Mike Wallace. Hollins is a very sizable pass-catcher with some extra gears who has generated some chatter from seasoned Eagle watchers as he heads into his second year. He could step into a more prominent role as a notable playmaker for Carson Wentz.

JARON BROWN, Seattle: Paul Richardson has left for Washington, and Brown is set to step into his old role as a deep threat for Russell Wilson. Brown could be even more productive than his predecessor. Brown consistently got open downfield in Arizona, but was done in by shoddy QB play. Wilson is one of the best downfield passers in the league and Brown is going to make himself known as a more regular playmaker in Seattle. Draft him as a WR5 or 6 before he starts making noise.

QUARTERBACKS

SAM DARNOLD, New York Jets: The excitement among Jets fans is for real. Darnold is the best QB in the rookie class from an intangibles and decision-making perspective. He plays for a team with an aggressive, opportunistic approach. The Jets also have respectable talents surrounding him. Josh McCown flirted with back-end QB1 status for a spell last year. Darnold's traits that can't be taught to just anyone will propel him into the starting role quickly and translate into solid, sometimes outstanding fantasy production.

MITCHELL TRUBISKY, Chicago: Much like Jared Goff last year, Trubisky is coming off a frustrating and forgettable rookie season, but his team has brought in a fresh new coach and surrounding talents. Trubisky may start a bit slowly as he adjusts to his new surroundings Jeff Skinner Jersey , but eventually he should mesh with the new playmakers he can utilize, and he could vault at least into high-end QB2 status.

TIGHT ENDS

AUSTIN HOOPER, Atlanta: The Falcons do have other weapons, but Matt Ryan has often featured his TE in the past and Hooper is ready to step forward and play a larger role in the offense in his third NFL season. Tight ends sometimes take a while to get into the pro flow, and now Hooper has enough experience to break out. With defenses always so concerned about Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley drawing extra attention downfield, Hooper will be more free to work in the middle and should become a more frequent red zone target.

RICKY SEALS-JONES, Arizona: Seals-Jones showed brief glimpses of his promise last season, with a two-TD outing and a 72-yard performance. Look for him to play a more frequent role in the Arizona offense this season, especially as a TD threat. He may face some discipline from the league for a recent off-field incident, but otherwise he should vault himself into fantasy relevance as a featured pass-catcher on a team needing his size and scoring potential.
