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.After Ross was trusted as the clear-cut No. 3 receiver on this team in Week 1 running 37 routes to just 9 routes for Higgins, we saw a changing of the guard in Week 2 when Higgins ran 42 routes while Ross ran just 23 of them. This is clearly an open competition, and one that Ross may have lost already. For now, we should give Higgins the benefit of the doubt. Against the Eagles, you really don't want to start either of them, as they have yet to allow a receiver top 81 yards or five receptions. Keep in mind they've played against Terry McLaurin, Robert Woods, and Cooper Kupp. We'll continue to monitor this receiver corps, but neither of these two need to be rostered right now.

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.Ross has the talent to be a fine option for fantasy football, but right now he's falling down the depth chart here in Cincinnati. Ross just simply isn't seeing the necessary volume to be considered for fantasy football. He can remain on your waiver wire.
