Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. caught three of five targets for 30 yards and rushed three times for one yard in the team's brutal 37-7 Week 13 loss to the Rams. There was optimism coming into the week after Shenault moved back into the slot and racked up nine targets the week before, but this was a big step backward. The one-time trendy breakout pick can't seem to put together consistent production in Jacksonville's sputtering offense, regardless of where he lines up. It's worth noting that Shenault saw a lot of Jalen Ramsey in Week 13 and it was also nice to see him rack up three rushing attempts, but he just hasn't gotten it done this season. It's fair to hold out some hope with the second-year wideout back at his natural position, but he can't be counted on to be anything other than a low-end WR4 in PPR formats moving forward.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. is a high-floor WR4 option against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13. Shenault moved back into the slot last week following Jamal Agnew's season-ending hip injury and promptly racked up five catches on nine targets in his optimal position. The second-year wideout's matchup is also fairly friendly this week, as he matches up against a Rams secondary allowing the 12th-most PPR points to opposing wide receivers this season. Shenault's low aDOT profile limits his yardage upside and touchdown equity, but he's a safe bet to rack up targets while providing a bankable floor in PPR formats.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. caught five of nine targets for 33 yards in a 21-14 home loss to the Atlanta Falcons. While Shenault couldn't do a whole lot with the targets, it was encouraging to see him rack up a ton of them while operating as a near full-time slot receiver in wake of Jamal Agnew's season-ending hip injury. The second-year wideout may not have an ideal ceiling as a low aDOT slot target, but the sheer target upside in that role makes Shenault a clear high-floor WR4 in PPR formats the rest of the way.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. is a very intriguing Week 12 play at home against the Atlanta Falcons. It's been a brutal campaign for the second year pro to date, as he's averaging just 8.2 PPR points per game to date in 2021, but there's reason to believe in a bounceback. In wake of Jamal Agnew's season ending hip injury last week, Shenault should move back into the slot where he's at his best. Shenault is more quick than he is fast and his strength plays up against smaller slot corners, so he has a real chance to turn things around starting this week. Bottom line, Shenault is a speculative, but very intriguing high-end WR4 against a very mediocre Falcons secondary in Week 12.
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer mentioned the idea of getting wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. some touches out of the backfield as a way to create more explosive plays for the offense. Shenault immediately become more attractive in fantasy when Jamal Agnew was ruled out for the rest of the season, and Shenault could creep into WR3/flex territory if he is given more touches out of the backfield. The 23-year-old has seven carries on the year for 30 yards (4.3 yards per carry), while adding 40 catches for 408 yards and no touchdowns on 62 targets over 10 games. Against a Falcons defense that doesn't slow many offenses down, Shenault and the Jaguars offense could put up some decent fantasy numbers in Week 12. Shenault is currently rostered in only 40% of Yahoo leagues.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. caught all five of his targets for 50 yards in the team's 30-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11. Shenault's five receptions led the team, and it was also the first time he managed 50 or more receiving yards since Week 6. The second-year wideout has yet to catch a touchdown in 2021, however, and his fantasy outlook has suffered as the Jaguars offense continues to struggle. While it was nice to see Shenault have a decent game, he's still not an exciting fantasy option as a WR5 lacking an ideal weekly floor or ceiling.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. is a low-upside WR5 play against San Francisco in Week 11. The second-year wideout was a popular breakout candidate coming into 2021, but he's been a massive disappointment, averaging just 8.2 PPR points per game this season. Additionally, Shenault has hit a new low recently, as he's now failed to score more than six PPR points in any of his last three games while playing as an outside receiver rather than in the slot. He's proven that he can't produce outside of the slot, but the team continues to line Shenault up out wide and his fantasy prospects have suffered. He's just a desperation WR5/flex play this week.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. caught just three of eight targets for 15 yards in the team's Week 10 road loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Shenault has been horribly inefficient for some time, but this was a new low for the one-time trendy breakout pick. The second-year wideout is spending most of his time on the outside despite the fact that he clearly can't win consistently against NFL corners in that position, and his fantasy value has tanked as a result. Until Shenault proves otherwise, he's just a low ceiling WR5 option who should be on benches going forward.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. is a low-confidence WR4 option against Indianapolis in Week 10. Shenault's matchup is excellent, as the Colts have allowed opposing wideouts to compile 41.4 PPR points per contest in 2021, fifth-most in the NFL. On the other hand, Shenault has struggled mightily as of late, with the second-year wideout failing to clear 25 receiving yards in two of his last three games. Shenault is currently running most of his routes on the outside where he's not equipped to consistently win at the NFL level, and it's showed. Fantasy managers must weigh Shenault's recent struggles with a matchup that elevates his outlook as a boom/bust WR4 option.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. caught all four of his targets to total 24 yards during the win over Buffalo on Sunday. Nonetheless, it was another uninspired effort from the 23-year-old, who remains without a touchdown this season. After D.J. Chark Jr. (ankle) landed on injured reserve in early October, Shenault was anticipated to take over as the team's No. 1 wideout. However, that hasn't happened, and instead, it's been Marvin Jones Jr. who leads the team, albeit he hasn't played great either. At this rate, fantasy managers may want to look elsewhere for production. Although there is a small upside, it's more than likely that many will be left disappointed in his output moving ahead, including after the Week 10 outing against the Colts.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. projects as a low-end WR4 option in Week 9 against Buffalo. The second-year wideout has been among fantasy football's biggest busts in 2021, averaging just nine PPR points per game despite being drafted as high as the sixth round in some drafts. Shenault's matchup is also far from friendly this week, as Buffalo has allowed opposing wideouts to score just 26.8 PPR points per game in 2021, the second-fewest in the NFL. On the bright side, Shenault has seen a combined 14 targets in his last two games, and due to a lack of legit target competition around him, he should continue to see plenty of looks. Overall, Shenault is an okay WR4 play but don't set expectations too high in this difficult matchup.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. managed just two catches for 13 yards in an embarrassing 31-7 loss against Seattle. Shenault dropped multiple passes and once again struggled to create separation while primarily lining up outside as opposed to in the slot. The second-year wideout has now scored more than 10 PPR points in just three of seven contests this season, and things are looking bleak as he simply doesn't have the speed to win outside. Until the coaching staff prioritizes getting him slot looks, Shenault is just a low-end WR4 with a questionable weekly ceiling.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. is a middling WR4 option against the Seahawks in Week 8. Shenault has been an up and down disappointment for the most part this season, though he did catch exactly six passes in two of three games after D.J. Chark Jr. went down with a season-ending ankle injury. Prior to the team's Week 7 bye, Shenault was playing outside for the most part while Jamal Agnew hogged slot snaps. The second-year wideout is far more suited to operate in the slot, so it would be ideal to see him re-assume that role, even if it's far from guaranteed. Shenault's matchup is neutral against a mediocre Seattle secondary, and while he has a chance to produce, he's far from a must-start.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. caught six passes for 54 yards in the team's 23-20 Week 6 win over the Miami Dolphins. Shenault didn't break off any explosive plays in the game and he failed to find the end zone, but, on a positive note, he was targeted 10 times in the game while playing increased snaps. As they proved in Week 6, the team seems intent on utilizing the second-year wideout primarily in the short passing game, which isn't ideal in terms of fantasy upside. Nonetheless, Shenault should be a solid WR4 option in PPR formats going forward due to his target equity within the offense.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. is an intriguing but confounding Week 6 fantasy option against the Miami Dolphins in London. On one hand, Miami has allowed opposing wideouts to score the fourth-most PPR points in the NFL, but on the other hand, Shenault was only targeted three times last week while catching just one pass. The second-year wideout has also been poorly deployed by the Jaguars coaching staff, and he lined up at outside receiver last week, a position that doesn't suit him as well as the slot. Regardless, the bottom line is that there are plenty of targets there for the taking, so Shenault deserves strong WR4/flex consideration this week in a great matchup.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. caught one of his three targets for 58 yards in a 37-19 Week 5 loss to the Titans. While it was nice to see the second-year wideout break a big play on the 58-yard completion, the lack of targets was concerning, and he wasn't on the field in most of the team's two wide receiver sets. Shenault will be hard to trust on a weekly basis if he continues to be left off the field in those formations. There is a chance that head coach Urban Meyer smartens up sooner rather than later and makes the correction, as Tavon Austin and Jamal Agnew are clearly not suited for outside duties, but that's very speculative at this point in time. Shenault should be considered a middling WR4 with a wide range of outcomes going forward.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. caught six passes for 99 yards and no touchdowns in the team's 24-21 loss to the Bengals on Thursday night. Shenault was impressive in this one, notably catching an improvised 52-yard bomb and missing a touchdown by a matter of inches. While it's tempting to say that D.J. Chark Jr.'s (ankle) absence played a part, Shenault's role remained the same after Chark left the game while Tavon Austin played in his place on the outside. This was a positive outing, but Shenault will likely continue to get most of his playing time in three wideout sets going forward, and he still ran low aDOT routes for most of the game. Overall, Shenault should be viewed as positively trending WR4 with increased target equity going forward.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. is a low upside WR5 in Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Shenault has disappointed thus far while running extremely shallow routes (5.0 aDOT in 2021) and failing to clear 50 yards or find the end zone at any point in the first three weeks. The Bengals have allowed the ninth most points to opposing receivers, but at this point in time, most fantasy managers would be better off starting a higher upside option. Shenault is more viable in PPR leagues, but even there he's a low-ceiling WR4 at best in Week 4.
Jacksonville Jaguars second-year wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. continued his disappointing start to the season in Week 3, totaling just four catches for 48 yards against Arizona on Sunday. The only positive to take away was that the wideout looked healthy after dealing with a shoulder injury last week. Until Shenault starts running deeper routes, his upside is severely capped with D.J. Chark Jr., and Marvin Jones Jr. also commanding volume in the Jaguars' inefficient passing attack. Fantasy managers should be viewing Shenault as a low upside WR4/5 until he proves otherwise.
Jacksonville Jaguars second-year wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. projects as a low-upside option in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals. While Shenault has been targeted 17 times in 2021, he's been limited to an extremely low aDOT role, only catching passes near the line of scrimmage. The young wideout also suffered a shoulder injury in Week 2, though he's practiced in full this week and should be healthy enough to play. All in all, Shenault is a low-upside option in a struggling offense, but even if it's not necessarily ideal, he can be started in PPR formats as a low-end WR4 due to his projected reception volume.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (shoulder) was able to practice fully on Wednesday. Shenault injured his shoulder in his team's Week 2 loss to the Denver Broncos and wound up catching just two passes. The second-year wideout is now on track to suit up to play in Week 3 against an Arizona Cardinals secondary that has allowed the 11th-most fantasy points per game to the wideout position thus far. Shenault showed some promise in Week 1, hauling in seven of nine targets for 50 yards. He can be treated as a WR3 going forward.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (shoulder), who suffered a shoulder injury in the Week 2 loss to the Denver Broncos, is expected to be able to play in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Urban Meyer. Shenault is expected to practice this week, so unless he suffers a setback with his shoulder, he should be good to go for Week 3. However, before his injury on Sunday, the 22-year-old had only two catches for minus-three yards on seven targets. Through the first two weeks, Shenault has just nine catches on 17 targets for 47 yards. Marvin Jones Jr. was the only receiver for the Jags that was productive in the loss to Denver. Jacksonville will be throwing a lot in 2021, but with rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence going through growing pains, this receiving corps will be shaky on a weekly basis.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of a shoulder injury suffered during the loss to the Denver Broncos. The 22-year-old had a horrendous showing in Week 2 despite getting seven looks from rookie signal-caller Trevor Lawrence, finishing with only two catches for negative yardage. This is an unfortunate turn of events for the sophomore wideout, who started off the year with a bang by racking up 50 yards off seven receptions in Week 1. Hopefully, he avoided serious injury, but if he didn't, Marvin Jones Jr. would certainly get some attention in both redraft and DFS formats in Week 3.
Jacksonville Jaguars second-year wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. is a solid WR3/4 or flex option at home against the Denver Broncos in Week 2. Shenault had seven catches and 50 yards in Week 1 against the Texans on nine targets, though his 3.1 aDOt was extremely low. If the second-year wideout continues to operate that close to the line of scrimmage he's likely to be the most consistent wide receiver on the team while sacrificing upside. Shenault projects to match up with Bryce Callahan on Sunday, who is one of the better slot corners in the NFL, but he's still very capable of catching seven-plus passes and he projects as a safe, high-floor PPR play.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. led the team with seven receptions in Sunday's season-opening 37-21 loss to the Houston Texans while also adding 50 yards through the air and nine yards on the ground. All things considered, it was an encouraging performance from the second-year wideout, as he was targeted nine times and he appears to have the PPR-friendly, low aDOT role to himself. Shenault looks like a rock-solid WR3/4 in PPR formats, but he's unlikely to live up to the breakout status that some were hoping for until he starts running some routes further down the field.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
