Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Laviska Shenault has a huge opportunity this Thursday. With D.J. Chark out, he's the lead candidate to see Gardner Minshew's deep looks, and he also contributes in the running game. Shenault ranks third on the Jags in total air yards (77), but of those two players, only Tyler Eifert (91) is active tonight. I'm expecting big things from the Colorado product against Miami's defense, as they have allowed the third-most half PPR points to wide receivers on the year. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The Jaguars are trying to get the ball in his hands and let him do work, as he's now totaled eight targets and seven carries through two games. In a game where they should be efficient running the ball, it would mean a lot if he got the same five carries he did in Week 2. He's coming on the field in 3WR sets behind Keelan Cole, though we could see that change as the season progresses. Miami does have a talented cornerback duo, though, particularly on the perimeter, which is where Shenault is playing two-thirds of his snaps. You don't want to rely on carries yet, either, as it was just one game where he saw them (two carries in Week 1). It's definitely encouraging and he should be owned with the chance of a breakout, but it's only a matter of time before Chark starts seeing the targets he deserves, which will make Shenault even tougher to project. He's a boom-or-bust WR5-type option.Some will wonder if Claypool is the add off the waiver wire after his big catch last week, but he's still trailing Washington in the pecking order. Claypool ran 13 routes while Washington ran 22 of them. This is not a team that runs 4WR sets, so we're going to have to wait for one of them to emerge before relying on either of them as anything more than a big play or bust WR5/6-type option. For now, the better option is Washington, but knowing the Texans have faced just 18.0 receiver targets per game, it's tough to say either of them are good bets.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Shenault has continued to be utilized all over the formation the first two weeks, but it hasn't turned into reliable fantasy production just yet. If you're looking for a desperation FLEX play, there are worse options to go with, but you're stuck hoping that he finds the end zone.
