Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Removed from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (knee) was removed from the PUP list Wednesday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

The veteran tight end is coming back from an ACL tear he suffered in October. O'Shaughnessy will now need to compete for a roster spot, likely hoping to win a blocking role behind presumptive starter Tyler Eifert.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Lands on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy was placed on the active/physically unable to perform list Saturday.

This doesn't come as much of a surprise given the tight end tore his ACL in October, although reports seem to indicate O'Shaughnessy should be available come the start of the season. If the 28-year-old returns in the near future, he'll be tasked with an uphill battle to regain his starting spot, likely having to unseat both Tyler Eifert and Josh Oliver for significant playing time.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Continuing rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (knee) is progressing well in his rehab from ACL surgery in October, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

The 28-year-old was enjoying the best campaign of his career through five games in 2019 with 14 catches for 153 yards and two touchdowns, but he torn his ACL during Week 5 and was lost for the season. O'Shaughnessy appears on track to be ready for the start of the regular season, but it's unclear if he'll be fully cleared for the start of training camp next month. Tyler Eifert signed as a free agent in March and is expected to be the starter, while O'Shaughnessy, Josh Oliver and rookie Tyler Davis should be in competition behind him.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars placed O'Shaughnessy (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday.

O'Shaughnessy suffered a torn ACL versus the Panthers in Week 5, for which he'll require season-ending surgery. His absence opens up additional opportunities for Josh Oliver (hamstring), Seth DeValve and Ben Koyack in the passing game behind Geoff Swaim.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Suffers torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's loss to the Panthers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The report adds that O'Shaughnessy is slated to undergo season-ending surgery once the swelling in his knee goes down. In O'Shaughnessy's absence, Geoff Swaim and Seth DeValve figure to see added snaps at tight end going forward. Additionally, 2019 third-round pick Josh Oliver, who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, will have a chance to contribute to the Jaguars' passing attack once he's healthy enough to play.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Sporting crutches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy was using crutches and had his left knee wrapped up after leaving Sunday's loss to the Panthers, Michael DiRocco of reports.

The 27-year-old had three receptions for 57 yards before sustaining the injury during the second half. Geoff Swaim would figure to step into the starting role if O'Shaughnessy is forced to miss time, and rookie Josh Oliver (hamstring) could factor in as he nears his return from injury.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Out with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy won't return to Sunday's game against the Panthers after suffering a knee injury.

O'Shaughnessy caught three passes for 57 yards before exiting the contest in the second half, which is by far his highest yardage total of the season. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the 27-year-old was quickly ruled out after initially being deemed questionable to return. Geoff Swaim will work as the Jaguars' No. 1 tight end in his absence.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Set for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy (chest) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

O'Shaughnessy exited Sunday's win over the Broncos after getting the wind knocked out of him, but he's good to go for the start practice this week. The 27-year-old has caught 11 of 16 targets for 96 yards and two touchdowns through four games while working as Jacksonville's No. 1 tight end.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Catching breather Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy had the wind knocked out of him and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Denver.

It's likely that O'Shaughnessy could be catching his breath before returning to action, but he'll be sidelined nonetheless. Before departing, O'Shaughnessy corralled one of his four targets for an 18-yard touchdown reception, giving him two scores in as many weeks.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Nabs touchdown in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy caught two of three targets for 18 yards and one touchdown during Thursday's 20-7 win over the Titans.

O'Shaughnessy once again operated as the top tight end in Jacksonville, relegating Geoff Swaim and Seth DeValve to rotational roles. The 2015 fifth-round pick scored his first touchdown during the Week 3 victory but was otherwise mostly targeted as a checkdown option, making him difficult to trust as a weekly fantasy contributor.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Four catches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy caught all four of his targets for 28 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.

The 27-year-old outproduced Geoff Swaim (three catches for 14 yards) once again, as the tight ends continue to be mostly utilized as checkdowns in the passing game. Neither Swaim nor O'Shaughnessy will provide much fantasy value given their current roles in the offense.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Works as top tight end Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy caught four of five targets for 32 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Geoff Swaim was expected to serve as Jacksonville's No. 1 tight end, but O'Shaughnessy started, saw more snaps (38 to 29) and produced more (Swaim caught four passes for 17 yards) in the season opener. Sunday's performance was reminiscent of last season for O'Shaughnessy, who started nine games but topped out with five receptions and 46 yards Week 10. Neither tight end figures to be a fantasy option until proven otherwise, especially as rookie QB Gardner Minshew appeared to show a much better downfield rapport with his wide receivers.

Jaguars' James O'Shaughnessy: Makes impact on one catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Shaughnessy brought in his only target for 18 yards in the Jaguars' 24-10 preseason loss to the Eagles on Thursday.

The veteran tight end was able to make an impact with his one reception, drawing the start with projected starter Geoff Swaim (undisclosed) out of action. O'Shaughnessy projects to primarily serve as a blocking tight end once again in 2019 if he does make the roster, with that far from a guarantee despite the fact he's coming off a 2018 campaign in which he set career highs in receptions (24) and receiving yards (214). Josh Oliver is essentially a lock for a roster spot as a rookie third-round pick, while Ben Koyack is also in the mix.

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.
