Laviska Shenault Jr. signs rookie deal with the Jaguars

Second-round pick WR Laviska Shenault Jr. out of Colorado signs his rookie contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Head coach Doug Marrone envisions Shenault filling a variety of roles for the Jaguars this season. “You can put him in the backfield, he can play wildcat [quarterback], he can play the ‘F’ tight end,” said Marrone of his new weapon. Shenault figures to be given ample opportunities right out of the gates in Jacksonville and is an intriguing late round add in redraft fantasy leagues. He’s an ever better target for those playing in dynasty leagues.

Laviska Shenault Jr. envisioned as a gadget player for the Jaguars?

The Jaguars envision Laviska Shenault Jr. as a gadget player. “You can put him in the backfield. He can play Wildcat,” said Jaguars’ Head Coach Doug Marrone. “You can put him as the F tight end. You can do a lot of things with him.”

Fantasy Impact

Shenault Jr. was selected 42nd overall by the Jaguars in the NFL 2020 Draft. He was a wide receiver in college, but the Jaguars are exploring the idea of using him as a gadget player. Shenault Jr. totaled 10 receiving touchdowns, and seven rushing scores in his college career. “You see it on the tape in 2018 and 2019. That’s one of the things we looked at,” Marrone added. “We went back there and I said (to Shenault), Look, we can do all those things but the whole key is going to be how you grasp it, how well you pick it up. Because if he can, make no mistake about it, we want to be able to do those things.” Shenault Jr. is currently 73rd among all wide receivers in the latest expert consensus rankings.

Laviska Shenault Jr. selected No. 42 by Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. with the No. 42 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Shenault Jr. found the end zone in a variety of ways during his college career, totaling 10 receiving TDs, seven rushing scores, and a punt-return touchdown as well. He has been bothered by injuries and has undergone surgeries on his core, toe, and shoulder. Similar to Cordarrelle Patterson, Shenault Jr. is an athletic specimen with a limited route tree. He’ll join D.J. Chark, Dede Westbrook, and Chris Conley as wideouts in Jacksonville.

Laviska Shenault Jr. ‘will be at 100%’ when football activities resume

NFL teams have been informed by Dr. William Meyers, who performed Colorado WR Laviska Shenault Jr.’s core muscle surgery in early March that, “by April 25, 2020, he will be at 100% for full football activities.”

Fantasy Impact

Shenault Jr. underwent core muscle surgery 5 1/2 weeks ago and it seems his recovery is right on schedule and teams should have nothing to worry about regarding his health for the upcoming season. With his big-play ability and quickness off the line of scrimmage, Shenault Jr. has drawn comparisons to Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins. He figures to go off the board in the late-first or early-second round of the Draft.

Laviska Shenault Jr. (core) will undergo surgery

After running a 4.59 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, it was revealed that Shenault will undergo surgery to repair a core muscle injury.

Fantasy Impact

Shenault pulled up at the end of his 40-yard dash run, which did seem suspicious. We now know that it was because of this injury that he has apparently been dealing with for quite a while now. While surgery to repair the issue is the right move, it's very concerning with Shenault's lengthy injury history. He's the definition of a boom-or-bust pick in Dynasty rookie drafts with the injury concerns, the added weight, and the 40-yard dash time.
