After the injury to DJ Chark, Jaguars OC Darrell Bevell talked about how he expected to have Shenault take on a bigger role offensively. What did that translate to on the field this past week? A 9% target share and just one reception for 58 yards. Additionally, to make matters worse, Shenault watched Agnew and Austin both finish with a combined 13 targets last week. Shenault's an incredibly talented wide receiver that could be a fantasy football superstar if he was used correctly, but the Jaguars seem incapable of understanding who they have with him on their roster. At this point, we cannot trust Shenault anywhere near our starting lineups if Jacksonville is going to feature Agnew and Austin ahead of him. He's worth holding on your bench one more week to see if the coaching staff comes to their senses, but if he doesn't come through this next week, it's time to simply move on.

There was some hope that Shenault would be utilized more following D.J. Chark's ankle injury, but it didn't happen in Week 5 as the second-year wide receiver saw just three targets on the day. Perhaps expanded usage is still coming, but the Jacksonville offense isn't one to invest in right now. A rookie quarterback and first-time head coach bring enough uncertainty to the table for a player whose role we're still trying to pin down.
