Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Leading receiver in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault caught all three of his targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 39-29 loss to the Chargers. He also gained zero yards on one carry.

Most of his production came on a 36-yard grab in the second quarter that set up the Jaguars' first touchdown, but that was enough to make Shenault the team's leading receiver on the afternoon. The three targets were the rookie's lowest volume of the year, but that can be attributed to a Chargers pass rush that gave Gardner Minshew little time to let routes develop downfield. Jacksonville will be on bye Week 8, but Shenault could be catching passes from a different quarterback on the other side of the break, as Minshew's job security is shaky following six straight losses.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault (hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers.

The rookie second-round pick never progressed to full practice participation this week, but the limited activity won't affect his availability for the game in Los Angeles. Shenault will look for a rebound performance after catching three passes for only 10 yards during a Week 6 loss to the Lions.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Logs limited session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Shenault is on the practice report with a hamstring injury for the third straight week. The rookie out of Colorado has avoided missing time thus far, and he even logged his highest snap shares of the season over the last two games. As such, fantasy managers shouldn't be too concerned about Shenault's injury potentially sidelining him for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Takes step back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault recorded three receptions on seven targets for 10 yards in Week 6 against the Lions.

Shenault saw a healthy seven targets, good for the second highest mark of his young career. However, he turned that into little production, with his longest gain of the day going for only four yards. Instead, he was overshadowed by Keelan Cole, who recorded six receptions for 143 yards Sunday. Even with this setback, Shenault has had a promising rookie season and had topped 75 receiving yards in each of his past two contests. He'll look to get things going again as the Jaguars take on the Chargers in Week 7.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Clear of injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Lions.

The rookie second-round pick began the week not practicing due to a hamstring issue, but he progressed throughout the week to avoid the questionable tag. Shenault has 12 receptions for 165 yards over the past two games and figures to be heavily involved again Sunday, especially if DJ Chark (ankle) is unable to suit up.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Upgrades to limited activity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Shenault took a step forward in terms of activity from Wednesday, when the Jaguars listed him as a non-participant. At this stage, Shenault appears to be in a better spot physically than fellow starting wideout DJ Chark, who missed a second straight practice Thursday on account of an ankle injury. The Jaguars will reveal whether Shenault and Chark will carry injury designation into Sunday's game against the Lions shortly after Friday's practice concludes.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: No practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault (hamstring) won't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Shenault was limited in practice last week with the same injury, but he suited up in Sunday's loss to the Texans and played a career-high 69 percent of offensive snaps while finishing with seven receptions for 79 yards on eight targets. The Jaguars may simply be granting the rookie some extra rest Wednesday. He'll have two more chances to practice prior to Jacksonville's Week 6 game against the Lions.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Leads way in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault recorded seven receptions on eight targets for 79 yards in Week 5 against Houston.

Shenault led the team with eight targets, most of which came before DJ Chark exited the game in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. He picked up chunk gains of 15, 25, and 13 yards, highlighted by a play late in the first half in which he split the Texans' secondary deep. After recording 30 receiving yards in each of his first three professional games, Shenault has combined to produce 165 yards in his past two contests. He'll look to maintain that level of involvement in the offense in Week 6 in a positive matchup against the Lions.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Cleared for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault (hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Texans.

The 22-year-old began the week as a limited practice participant but showed enough to avoid the questionable tag for Week 5. Shenault caught five passes for a career-high 86 yards last week against the Bengals.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Ready to play Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault (hamstring) isn't included on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Texans.

The rookie second-round pick worked as a limited practiced participant Wednesday through Friday after suffering the hamstring injury Week 4. Shenault was able to avoid any setbacks at practice and should play his usual role for the Jaguars on Sunday.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Practice reps capped again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Shenault has put together two straight limited practice sessions since picking up a hamstring injury Week 4. It's encouraging to see that the rookie second-round pick has been able to consistently see the practice field in some capacity, and coach Doug Marrone said earlier this week that he "has a chance" to face the Texans on Sunday.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Limited to begin week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury.

Shenault likely picked up the injury in Jacksonville's Week 4 loss to the Bengals, during which he notched a career-best 86 receiving yards while hauling in five of six targets. According to Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com, coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday that Shenault "has a chance" to suit up Sunday in Houston, though a final decision on the rookie's availability could come down to what he's able to do in practice over the next two days.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Career-best receiving total in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault caught five of six targets for 86 yards and rushed once for five yards in Sunday's 33-25 loss to Cincinnati.

A large chunk of Shenault's production came in the two-minute drill at the end of the first half, as he recorded three catches for 59 yards to set up a 20-yard field goal. He finished nine receiving yards shy of DJ Chark's team-leading total, but Chark found the end zone twice while Shenault has now gone three weeks without a touchdown after scoring in his NFL debut. Shenault more than doubled his previous career high of 37 receiving yards, and he'll look to build off this performance in Week 5 against the winless Texans.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Posts five catches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault secured five of six targets for 33 yards and rushed once for one yard in the Jaguars' 31-13 loss to the Dolphins on Thursday.

The versatile rookie mainly stuck to receiver duties in the lopsided loss, a departure from Week 2 in particular, when he logged five rushes. However, his work through the air ticked up, as the six targets Shenault logged Thursday were his most yet through three games. The Colorado product figures to be progressively involved in multiple facets as the season unfolds, with the 10-day time span until a Week 4 road matchup against the Bengals potentially affording offensive coordinator Jay Gruden extra time to devise some specialty plays for the second-round pick.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Totals 72 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault rushed five times for 37 yards and caught three of four targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 33-30 loss to Tennessee.

The rookie's receiving numbers were nearly identical to the season opener -- minus the touchdown -- but he was more involved in the run game this week. The Jaguars continue to utilize Shenault as a flex back/receiver, and he appears to have a consistent role in the offense to open the season.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Finds end zone in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault recorded three receptions on four targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Colts. He added two rush attempts for 10 yards.

Shenault recorded the first touchdown of his career late in the second quarter as he cut across the middle of the field for a 15-yard score. Reports suggested the Jaguars would look for creative ways to involve Shanault, and that was the case Sunday as he was utilized as both a rusher and receiver while playing 31 of 50 offensive snaps. Shenault will look to remain involved in Week 2 against the Titans.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Ready to face Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault (undisclosed) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Shenault dealt with minor injuries during training camp, but his absence from the Jaguars' first report of 2020 means he'll begin his rookie season at full health. The rookie second-round pick should have an immediate opportunity to pick up snaps, as the Jaguars are lacking in established playmakers at receiver beyond top target DJ Chark. At least to begin the season, Shenault will compete with the likes of Chris Conley, Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook for snaps alongside Chark. Shenault could even have a chance to take some snaps out of the backfield after the Jaguars moved on from top rusher Leonard Fournette during training camp.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Banged up a bit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault was held out of Saturday's scrimmage with a minor injury, though coach Doug Marrone said the wide receiver would've been able to play if it had been a real game, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Dede Westbrook (shoulder) also was held out, leaving DJ Chark, Chris Conley and Keelan Cole to handle most of the first-team reps at wide receiver. The Jaguars have five viable candidates for WR snaps Week 1, with only Chark appearing locked in for a full-time role. Shenault thus seems most likely to start his career as a part-time player, but reports from training camp suggest he could eventually emerge from the pack, with Reid noting that the rookie is acclimating quickly while showing an ability to play both outside and in the slot. Quarterback Gardner Minshew said he already knew Shenault was an athletic freak but has been pleasantly surprised with the second-round pick's reliable hands and route running. Apart from Chark, it's the rookie who offers real upside in the Jacksonville receiving corps, more so than Conley, Westbrook or Cole.

Jaguars' Laviska Shenault: Syncing up with Minshew
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shenault is making a strong impression on Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew, who referred to the rookie as "a freak" and praised his route running, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports.

Coach Doug Marrone discussed Shenault's versatility after the 2020 draft, noting that the second-round pick could even see snaps in the backfield or as a flex tight end. The path to Year 1 fantasy value probably requires a regular role at one of the three WR spots, which could be a bit tricky with Chris Conley, Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole also in the mix to see playing time alongside top dog DJ Chark. The Jaguars should find a way to get Shenault some touches, but even a strong showing throughout training camp wouldn't necessarily put him in a top-three role out of the gate.
