Fantasy Impact: 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.
