Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. caught three or more passes in every game he completed as a rookie, and quarterbacks compiled a cumulative rating of 119 on throws to Shenault.
Huddle Up: Shenault showed promise as a rookie despite a revolving door at quarterback. Enter No. 1 pick Trevor Lawrence and head coach Urban Meyer, who wasn't shy about using versatile receivers in college, and Shenault could see a jump in production in his sophomore season. He is a WR4 with upside.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. was consistently making plays during offseason workouts and showed growth as a receiver, according to ESPN.com's Michael DiRocco.
Huddle Up: Shenault probably will be used in the slot most of the time this season and could be used in short passing plays because of his playmaking abilities. Fantasy players could consider him a late round pick in drafts.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. is unlikely to be used as much on running plays in 2021, based on recent comments made by offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who told reporters Tuesday, June 15, that he wants Shenault to develop 'as a pure wide receiver this offseason.'
Huddle Up: Reports out of Jacksonville have been glowing this offseason regarding Shenault, so his transition seems to be going well so far. Nevertheless, his potential rushing contributions took a hit when the Jaguars spent a first-round pick on Travis Etienne. Jacksonville may have too crowded of a receiver room for Shenault to return WR3 value this season, but he boasts the talent and upside to get there.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. showed improved route running skills during offseason workouts and was able to catch all his targets during the workouts open to the media.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars added Marvin Jones this offseason, but Shenault should see plenty of targets as the slot receiver. He could be at least a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues if he can build a good connection with Trevor Lawrence.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. ranked eighth in the NFL with 16 broken tackles after the catch in 2020, and he caught five or more passes in each of the final four games, logging three touchdowns and 33 targets in that span.
Huddle Up: His elusiveness after the catch and strong close to his rookie season are both encouraging, and with Urban Meyer now the coach and Trevor Lawrence likely to be under center, Shenault's numbers could climb higher in 2021. Consider him a WR4.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. posted five grabs for 48 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 16 against the Chicago Bears, with the highlight his 34-yard scoring grab.
Huddle Up: Shenault has shown some glimpses of brilliance in a rookie season which saw him have to deal with Gardner Minshew, Jake Luton and Mike Glennon under center. Many feel Trevor Lawrence will be throwing passes for the Jaguars in 2021, and that has to have Shenault's fantasy owners in long-term keeper leagues rather stoked.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. registered a team-high five catches for 43 yards on six targets in Week 15 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: The rookie receiver has 11 grabs across the past two games, but he remains more of a WR5 in most PPR leagues of 12 or more teams at this juncture. He is a nice looking prospect for those in long-term keeper formats, however.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. registered six receptions for 49 yards on 11 targets in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans and he ran once for two yards.
Huddle Up: Shenault is an exciting rookie who seems to jell a little better with Gardner Minshew rather than the team's other two quarterbacks. The rookie might be worth a look in deeper PPR leagues as a low-end WR4 or flex play in Baltimore next Sunday.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr. (thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 11, but is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Shenault has been targeted only eight times over the last three games and has posted at least 50 yards in only two games this season. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can avoid Shenault.
