Panthers WR Laviska Shenault is a healthy scratch for today's opener vs. the Browns. We'll see if he can earn himself a role after being dealt to Carolina in late August, but he's not worth stashing outside of the deepest of redraft leagues.

The Jaguars are trading WR Laviska Shenault to the Panthers, according to multiple reports. It's a fresh start for Shenault, who had clearly slid down the new depth chart in Jacksonville. It's also an indication that Carolina remains unenthusiastic about 2nd-year WR Terrace Marshall. We'll see about Shenault's expected role and the terms of the trade.

If you drafted Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault in 2021, then you know he let your fantasy football team down big time. But could things turn around in his 3rd year? "We're high on Laviska," GM Trent Baalke told reporters Tuesday in Indianapolis, ahead of the NFL Scouting Combine. "It's the coaches' job to get him the ball, but by no means has the ship sailed. I don't know where that idea would come from." Baalke is heading into his 3rd year as Jacksonville GM, so he was on staff when the Jags drafted Shenault. HC Doug Pederson, of course, heads into his 1st Jacksonville campaign. So we'll see what Pederson and his staff say about Shenault this offseason. We'll also see what else the team has at WR, with D.J. Chark and Laquon Treadwell facing free agency and Jamal Agnew coming off a hip injury (after his surprise emergence as a slot WR). Shenault is going in WR5-6 range in early best-ball drafting, which makes him a low-risk bet with upside.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault has been activated from the COVID list. He should be back for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots but should not be in fantasy lineups.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault has been placed on the COVID list. He'll miss Sunday's game vs. the Jets. Shenault has been a major disappointment this season but has still averaged 6.6 targets over the last 5 games. His absence is a slight boost for WR Marvin Jones, WR Laquon Treadwell and TE James O'Shaughnessy.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (shoulder, foot) did not practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he's able to get back on the practice field tomorrow, but hopefully Shenault isn't in your Week 16 fantasy plans.

The Jaguars fired HC Urban Meyer. He didn't even last a year in Jacksonville. Meyer's performance was embarrassing both on and off the field. Darrell Bevell -- who has 15 years of experience as an OC -- will take over as interim HC. Meyer's departure can only be good news for Jacksonville's offense, although we still wouldn't go too crazy investing in Jaguars down the stretch.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Jaguars TE Dan Arnold suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his right knee Sunday against the Falcons and will miss 4-6 weeks. The timing -- with just 5 games remaining -- means it could end his season. Whether he makes it back or not, Arnold is certainly droppable in nearly all redraft formats. James O'Shaughnessy figures to be the next guy up at the position but likely falls short of Arnold's upside. O'Shaughnessy, after all, was already on the team when Jacksonville acquired Arnold from the Panthers earlier this season and vaulted him quickly to the top of the depth chart. Arnold's absence leaves behind a nearly 20% share of targets to be distributed. WR Laviska Shenault could be a prime beneficiary. Jamal Agnew's season-ending hip injury in Week 11 moved Shenault back into the primary slot role Sunday.

Jaguars WR Jamal Agnew will miss the rest of the season with the hip injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Agnew had emerged as a big part of Jacksonville's passing attack, averaging 6.3 targets over the last 6 games. Look for WR Marvin Jones, WR Laviska Shenault and TE Dan Arnold to pick up that volume.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark has been placed on IR and will miss the rest of the season with his fractured ankle. Tavon Austin somewhat unbelievably stepped in as Jacksonville's #3 WR after Chark exited Thursday night's game in Cincinnati, but we wouldn't bother adding him to fantasy rosters. WRs Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault should pick up extra volume with Chark out of the picture

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark suffered a left leg injury in the 1st quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Bengals and had to be carted off the field. We'll update his status when we know more. WRs Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault will pick up more work with Chark out.

Update: Chark fractured his left ankle, according to multiple reports. He'll obviously miss the rest of the season. We'll see about his status heading into 2022.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (shoulder) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s safe to use as you normally would for Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (shoulder) put in a full practice on Wednesday. Shenault underwent an MRI on Monday that evidently revealed no major issues. He'll be out there for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals.

Jaguars HC Urban Meyer says WR Laviska Shenault (shoulder) “should” play this week, per beat writer John Shipley. We’ll follow Shenault's practice participation over the next few days. Through 2 weeks, the 2nd-year WR has just 47 yards on 9 catches.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that he'll have an MRI Monday. We'll see about the severity of the issue.

Jaguars coaches are "buzzing" about WR Laviska Shenault, according to insider Hays Carlyon. Shenault has garnered heaps of praise from beat writers for his work in OTAs and minicamp -- and it sounds like Jacksonville's coaching staff has seen the same thing. Shenault turned in a promising rookie season and is getting a big QB upgrade in Trevor Lawrence this year. He's a 2021 breakout candidate.

The Jaguars selected Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence with the 1st pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. It’s tough to say how long we’ve known this would be the pick. Lawrence spent at least all of the 2020 season as the presumptive #1 selection. With 36 starts across 3 years at Clemson, Lawrence enters the NFL long on experience. He racked up 90 TD passes vs. just 17 INTs with the Tigers and earned passing grades of 90+ from Pro Football Focus in each of his 3 seasons. Lawrence brings accuracy in throwing to every level and adds rushing upside. He topped out at 563 yards on the ground as a 2019 sophomore and punched in 17 TD runs over the past 2 years. With Jacksonville, Lawrence inherits a talented WR corps led by D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault and free-agent addition Marvin Jones. Lawrence has the upside to crack the fantasy top 12 right away and should be a long-term factor for his fantasy teams.

WR Marvin Jones has agreed to a 2-year, $14.5 million deal with the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. (That includes $9.2 million guaranteed.) Jones reunites with OC Darrell Bevell, who ran the Detroit offense the past 2 years and now serves as Jacksonville's OC. Jones also joins a receiving corps led by D.J. Chark and 2nd-year WR Laviska Shenault. Those 3 figure to lead the depth chart, leaving little room for Keelan Cole, Chris Conley or Collin Johnson to find relevance. Jones played all 16 games last year for the 1st time in 3 seasons, catching a career-high 76 balls for 978 yards and 9 TDs. His arrival complicates the target outlook for Chark and Shenault.
