I am very excited about Laviska Shenault. He popped off for 37 yards and a score on four targets, and he even saw two carries out of the backfield. His Week 1 usage could be flukish, but I expect him to get a lot of the looks that Chris Conley and Dede Westbrook got last year. He's a high-upside, high-risk play at wide receiver in Week 2, and I'd prefer to leave him on the bench to get a better sense of how Jacksonville will use him in come-from-behind situations. 
Mike Tagliere

It seems that Shenault stole the perimeter role opposite D.J. Chark right away, as he played 31 snaps to just 16 for Chris Conley. It stinks they're still somewhat sharing that role, but it's good to know Shenault was used all over the field, including the slot and backfield. We can't get excited about a 37-yard, one-touchdown performance against the Colts weak secondary, but he should've been added to rosters this week with the chance that he turns into the team's No. 2 option behind Chark. The Titans have Johnathan Joseph lining up at LCB, which is where Shenault lined up most of the time. Joseph is a proven veteran who's past his prime, but he's still held opposing quarterbacks under a 100 QB Rating in his coverage for 12 straight years. He used to run a 4.31 40-yard dash, so he's not slow, though he's obviously not that fast at 36 years old. I wouldn't trust Shenault as anything more than a WR5 right now, though the arrow is pointing up.It seemed like he was getting close to playing last week but was ultimately scratched. He did get in limited practices on both Thursday and Friday, so I'd assume he was close to play. The Jets signed Pierre Desir to be their top perimeter cornerback this offseason, but that went south quickly, as he allowed two touchdowns before halftime in his coverage, and that got him a quick seat on the bench. Seriously, he was benched for Nate Hairston at halftime. The other perimeter cornerback (where Aiyuk figures to play 80 percent of his snaps) is Blessuan Austin, who has seen exactly 39 career targets in his coverage. He was a sixth-round pick for the Jets in last year's draft who was forced into starting. He hasn't been horrible, though he's also not someone you need to avoid. Still, it's Aiyuk's first game and he may be on a snap count. He's a boom-or-bust WR5-type option.
