Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. was described as a 'freak' by QB Gardner Minshew, who also praised Shenault for his route running.
Huddle Up: Shenault is recovered from surgery, and he will be one of several receivers with a chance to emerge as a consistent playmaker for the Jacksonville passing attack. He is a must-own option in dynasty formats and a potential late-round lottery ticket in standard leagues.

Jacksonville Jaguars second-round pick WR Laviska Shenault Jr. (abdomen) is doing on-field work to rehab his core muscle injury he had operated on in February.
Huddle Up: Shenault could work his way up the unproven receiving corps quickly and is a good value to take as a WR5.

Jacksonville Jaguars rookie WR Laviska Shenault Jr., a second-round draft choice, is expected to play an immediate role within the Jacksonville offense. Jaguars director of college scouting Mark Ellenz said Shenault is 'very athletic and he can run really well -- especially for his size.' Ellenz added Shenault is strong, has a lot of ability in running after the catch and is highly competitive. Jaguars receivers coach Keenan McCardell called his new weapon a 'Swiss Army knife' as Shenault is able to play all over the field. 'I like the fact that he's been moved around and he has a really good football IQ,' McCardell said.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars are blessed with a lot of young talent at the receiver position, but much of their value will come down to QB Gardner Minshew II's development in his second year. Shenault should be considered a WR6 entering draft season, with better value in full-retention leagues.
