Laviska Shenault Jr.
WR - JAC
Week 13 Outlook
Laviska Shenault hauled in 5-of-9 targets for 33 yards during the Jaguars 14-21 loss to the Falcons in Week 12.
Well, after multiple midweek reports that Shenault would see increased work out of the backfield and 'increased touches', he didn't receive a single carry and only racked up 33 total yards. The only bright spot here is that he led the team with nine targets. Clearly a talented player, Shenault's fantasy value is unfortunately tied to an incompetent Jaguars offense. He's a desperation FLEX play in PPR formats against the Rams in Week 13.
Jacksonville Jaguars Laviska Shenault Jr. could see touches out of the backfield, per head coach Urban Meyer.
In talking about creating more explosive offensive plays, Meyer mentions Laviska Shenault Jr. could see touches out of the backfield. The 23-year-old is expected to see an uptick in targets with Jamal Agnew (hip) out for the season and now could see carries out of the backfield, increasing his fantasy value. Shenault Jr. has yet to find the end zone this season after catching 40-of-62 targets for 408 yards while rushing for 30 yards on seven attempts over 10 games in 2021. The Colorado product is 46th in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings and is high-upside flex option if he does see touches out of the backfield in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Laviska Shenault hauled in all five of his targets for 50 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the 49ers.
Shenault did a nice job hauling in all of his targets, but a lost fumble in the first half puts a blemish on his performance. He saw one fewer target than Marvin Jones Jr. but was more involved than Jamal Agnew. Shenault will be on the WR3 radar ahead of a Week 12 date against the Falcons.
Laviska Shenault hauled in all four of his targets for 24 yards and rushed one time for negative yardage in the Jaguars' Week 9 win over the Bills.
Shenault did a nice job catching all of his passes, but Jamal Agnew's emergence as a gadget player continued to eat into his workload. He gets an easier matchup against the Colts in Week 10 but has a scary low floor in this incompetent offense.
Laviska Shenault Jr. caught 6-of-10 targets for 54 yards in the Jaguars' Week 6 win over the Dolphins in London.
While Shenault tied Marvin Jones Jr. for the team-lead with 10 targets, his final box score is a bit disappointing. Jamal Agnew has seemingly taken over the gadget role in this offense leaving Shenault a middling WR3 with upside on this offense. It will be interesting to see what his usage is like when the Jags come out of their Week 7 bye.
