Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Re-signs with Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'shaughnessy signed a contract with Jacksonville on Thursday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

O'Shaughnessy will be entering his fifth season in 2019 and his third with the Jaguars. He hasn't had much of a role in the passing game thus far in his career. He recorded 214 yards on 24 catches, both career highs, while playing in 14 games last season. He'll likely operate primarily as a blocker and backup tight end once again in 2019.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Posts 25 yards in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy caught three of four targets for 25 yards in Sunday's loss to the Texans, and finished the season with 24 receptions for 214 yards and zero touchdowns.

Sunday's performance on the surface appears quite underwhelming, but considering O'Shaughnessy had only one reception in the previous two games -- and QB Blake Bortles totaled a mere 107 passing yards -- it manages to be a decent end to the year. The 26-year-old set a career high in receptions and yards, but considering he served as the Jaguars' No. 1 tight end for nine games after Austin Seferian-Jenkins (abdomen) landed on injured reserve, it's overall a disappointing statline. Bortles and Cody Kessler share some of the blame for their struggles under center, but there's also the fact that O'Shaugnessy simply isn't a starting caliber tight end in the NFL. The Illinois State product begins 2019 as a free agent and could latch on elsewhere as a depth tight end.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Not targeted Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy recovered a fumble in Sunday's 17-7 win over the Dolphins.

O'Shaughnessy didn't receive a target despite playing 42 of 67 offensive snaps as his minimal offensive production continues. The 26-year-old has seven catches for 42 yards over the last six games, as the tight end position continues to produce essentially nothing in the passing game for the Jaguars.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Catches lone target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy caught his only target for seven yards in Sunday's 16-13 loss to the Redskins.

O'Shaugnessy hasn't reached 20 receiving yards since Week 10, and that didn't change Sunday as Jacksonville had only 57 passing yards. The 26-year-old should finish the season as the Jaguars' starting tight end but holds minimal fantasy value in an offense that hasn't scored a touchdown since November.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Continues low production as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy caught three of four targets for 12 yards in Thursday's loss at Tennessee.

O'Shaughnessy entered Thursday's game having caught three passes in the previous three games combined, but his increased involvement didn't equal increased production in this case. The 26-year-old remains in the starting role at tight end for the Jaguars -- he played 75 percent of offensive snaps Thursday -- and there's little reason to expect his fantasy outlook will change in the coming weeks in an offense that has scored a single touchdown over the last two games.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Remains quiet in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy caught both of his targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 6-0 win over Indianapolis.

O'Shaughnessy started for a fifth straight game, but his snap share (67 percent) was actually the lowest it's been in any contest since Week 5. Regardless, playing time hasn't translated to opportunity in the passing game, with the 2015 fifth-round pick recording three consecutive outings with exactly two targets. There isn't much reason to expect more work in a Week 14 road game against the Titans.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Manages zero catches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy didn't catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 24-21 loss to Buffalo.

O'Shaughnessy -- along with the rest of the Jaguars' pass catchers -- has been invisible the last two weeks with one catch for four yards on four targets over the team's last two games. The 26-year-old isn't worth fantasy consideration given Jacksonville's complete inability to throw the football.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Totals four yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy caught one of two passes for four yards in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

O'Shaugnessy still played 85 percent of offensive snaps -- trailing only QB Blake Bortles & the offensive line -- but RB Leonard Fournette provided the only real production on Sunday. The Jaguars' pass catchers exhibited the brunt of the offense's inconsistency as Bortles totaled 18 attempts and 104 yards passing, 26 of which went to Fournette. O'Shaugnessy is clearly the top tight end currently on the team but that position has yet to hold much fantasy value this season.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Catches five passes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy caught five of six targets for 46 yards in Sunday's 29-26 loss to the Colts.

O'Shaughnessy returned to the field after missing the previous two games with a hip injury and played 52 offensive snaps, his highest total of the season. Sunday's reception and yardage totals were also season highs as the 26-year-old should remain the Jaguars' top option at tight end, though his fantasy appeal remains limited due to the general inconsistency of the offense.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Will make return Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (shoulder) is active Sunday against the Colts.

O'Shaughnessy has had three weeks to rest his ailing shoulder, as he missed two games leading up to the Week 9 bye. After returning to practice on a limited basis this week, he'll return to face an Indianapolis defense that has allowed three touchdowns to opposing tight ends this year. While O'Shaughnessy is atop the depth chart at the position in Jacksonville, his fantasy ceiling is limited after failing to record more than 30 receiving yards in a single game this season.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Questionable for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports.

O'Shaugnessy was a limited practice participant all week, which should put him on track to be available Sunday after missing the last two games. Fellow tight end David Grinnage (knee) is also listed as questionable, leaving Blake Bell as the only fully healthy option at the position for the Jaguars.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Remains limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (hip) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

O'Shaughnessy was forced to sit out the Jaguars' last two games after suffering the hip injury Week 6 against the Cowboys. The tight end apparently isn't yet fully healthy following the Jaguars' bye week, but the fact that he was on the field for the first session of Week 10 is a step in the right direction. The 26-year-old's involvement in practices Thursday and Friday should provide a better indicator of his chances of playing Sunday in Indianapolis.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Out Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (hip) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Eagles, Phillip Heilman of the Florida Times-Union reports.

This decision doesn't come with much surprise after O'Shaughnessy sat out Week 7 against Houston and was still unable to practice Thursday while dealing with a hip injury. David Grinnage and Blake Bell are the only remaining healthy tight end options left for the Jaguars heading into Sunday.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Not practicing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (hip) is not in line to participate in Thursday's practice.

After being a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, O'Shaughnessy is set to be back on the sideline for Thursday's session. This is not a good sign for O'Shaughnessy's status for the Week 8 contest in London, and it appears he would have to return to practice in some capacity Friday to have any shot of playing against the Eagles. In the likely event that O'Shaughnessy misses his second straight game, David Grinnage and Blake Bell will continue operating as the team's lone tight ends.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (hip) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

O'Shaughnessy was sidelined for Sunday's 20-7 loss to the Texans due to the hip issue, but his involvement in practice in any capacity three days later implies some progress. The Jaguars' pre-practice report had suggested that O'Shaughnessy would go down as a non-participant, but it appears he was able to fit in some more work than anticipated. It remains to be seen whether O'Shaughnessy will suit up against the Eagles this weekend, and if he were to remain sidelined, David Grinnage and Blake Bell would once again split snaps at tight end.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Misses first practice of week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (hip) isn't expected to practice Wednesday.

O'Shaughnessy missed Sunday's 20-7 loss to the Texans due to the hip injury, allowing recent practice-squad callups David Grinnage and Blake Bell to split the snaps at tight end. The extent of O'Shaughnessy's setback isn't fully known, but it's not the most encouraging sign that he's opening Week 8 preparations with an absence at practice. He'll have two more chances to prove his health before the Jaguars decide on his fate for the matchup with the Eagles this weekend.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.

With both Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core-muscle injury) and Niles Paul (knee) already on injured reserve, O'Shaughnessy's absence represents yet another hit to a battered Jacksonville tight-end corps. Unless Jacksonville supplements its depth at the position prior to Sunday's game, David Grinnage and Blake Bell will work as the team's sole tight ends in Week 7.

October 18, 2018 03:12 PM
Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Set to miss practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (hip) isn't in line to practice Thursday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

A downgrade from Wednesday's limited participation puts O'Shaughnessy's Week 7 status on notice, but he'll have one more opportunity Friday to prove the hip issue isn't too significant of a concern. If O'Shaughnessy is held out or limited during Sunday's game against the Texans, the Jaguars would be perilously thin at tight end. O'Shaughnessy looks like the Jaguars' primary option at the position for the foreseeable future with Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core-muscle injury) and Niles Paul (knee) now on injured reserve, leaving David Grinnage and Blake Bell -- both of whom were recently practice squad players -- as the only healthy tight ends left on the roster.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice due to a hip issue.

O'Shaughnessy likely picked up the injury during Sunday's blowout loss to the Cowboys, but his presence at practice in any capacity suggests he's likely not in danger of missing the Week 7 contest against the Texans. So long as his health prevails, O'Shaughnessy should serve as the Jaguars' starting tight end with both Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core-muscle injury) and Niles Paul (knee) now on injured reserve. O'Shaughnessy played 75 percent of Jacksonville's offensive snaps in Week 6, finishing with three catches for 29 yards on four targets.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Logs most snaps at tight end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy played 36 of the Jaguars' 48 offensive snaps (75 percent) in Sunday's 40-7 loss to the Cowboys. He finished with three receptions for 29 yards on four targets.

O'Shaughnessy moved up to second on the depth chart heading into the week after Austin Seferian-Jenkins (core-muscle injury) was placed on injured reserve, then ended up handling most of the snaps at tight end after replacement starter Niles Paul (knee) exited after the first series and didn't return. Paul is believed to be dealing with an MCL sprain that will likely force him to miss time, which seemingly puts O'Shaughnessy in line to start in Week 7 against the Texans and pace the position group in snaps once again. While O'Shaughnessy doesn't profile as a high-priority option in a mediocre passing attack, he might be worth a look in deeper leagues if he continues to draw a handful of targets per game while Paul is sidelined.
