2021 PPR Draft Rankings

James Robinson Note

When Travie Etienne was healthy, Robinson's value had a hard cap on it, especially under the new regime in Jacksonville. But with Etienne now lost for the season, Robinson's value shoots up into solid RB2 range. While Robinson was on the field last year, the Jaguars running backs combined for 332 touches. Robinson accounted for 289 of them, or 87.0 percent, a number that doesn't really exist in today's NFL. He averaged 4.46 yards per carry, 5.73 yards per target, and scored 10 total touchdowns, which is solid, though nothing special. Enter Urban Meyer, who said they wanted to add depth/competition at the running back position, which they did with Etienne and Carlos Hyde. But with only Hyde left to siphon off touches, expect a big workload for Robinson again, enough to make him a solid starter.

Laviska Shenault Jr. Note

It was going to be easy to name Shenault as a breakout candidate in 2021, as he was the clear-cut No. 2 option behind D.J. Chark on the Jaguars depth chart. Suddenly, the Jaguars have a new play-caller, a proven veteran receiver (Marvin Jones), and a first-round running back (Travis Etienne) they're calling a wide receiver. This has created some doubt in the role that Shenault will play under Urban Meyer. There's upside in selecting him as a bench receiver, though, as Trevor Lawrence should be a massive upgrade at quarterback, and it's not like Chark/Jones haven't dealt with injuries over the last couple years (Jones is also getting up there in age). Shenault is purely an upside pick that you stash on your bench until you find out just how he's being used.

D.J. Chark Jr. Note

There are many trying to figure out the target share for Laviska Shenault, Marvin Jones, and Travis Etienne, but the one who's the clear-cut No. 1 option on this team is Chark. If Trevor Lawrence turns out to be the real deal, Chark can be the 2021 version of Tee Higgins when he was with Joe Burrow (was the No. 11 wide receiver in eight full games with Burrow). Chark already flashed WR1 potential in 2019 when he racked up 73 receptions for 1,008 yards and eight touchdowns with the combination of Gardner Minshew and Nick Foles, so why can't he be more with Lawrence? The coaching staff is a big question mark, but you don't draft Lawrence to run the ball 40 times per game. Chark comes with some risk but even more upside.

Marvin Jones Jr. Note

I'll be the first to admit it's possible we're all underestimating Jones this year. Sure, he's now 31 years old, but he's also coming off 1,757 yards and 18 touchdowns over the last two seasons, and that was while missing three full games. The Jaguars and their new coaching staff sought him out in free agency and paid him $7 million per year, so he's not likely going to be "just a mentor" to the young receivers. It is tough to see him being a consistent producer, however, as D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault, and Travis Etienne are all going to be heavily targeted as well.

Trevor Lawrence Note

While it's typically tough for a rookie quarterback to make it into top-12 territory, Lawrence is likely the exception to the rule. He comes in as an advanced passer who has tremendous touch on his passes that not many rookies do. The Jaguars defense is in clear rebuild mode, which should allow for plenty of pass attempts, making 4,000-plus passing yards likely. On top of that, Lawrence has great mobility and is likely to rush for 400-plus yards and a handful of touchdowns on the ground. That alone should get him into the top-15, with a good chance at top-12.
