2021 Half PPR Draft Rankings

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.

Laviska Shenault Jr. Note

Shenault didn't exactly explode in his rookie year, but that was hardly his fault. Gardner Minshew, Jake Luton, and Mike Glennon combined to offer the worst quarterback play of any team in the league. Trevor Lawrence's arrival should help immensely even if he endures some rookie struggles, and, as he showed last year, Shenault can be used in a variety of creative ways, including the running game. The addition of Marvin Jones should push Shenault to the slot more often (he played on the outside 69% of the time last year), and that should be a good thing for his value. You'll be seeing Shenault on "breakout" lists a lot this year, and for good reason.

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.
