Laviska Shenault Fantasy Football News 2020

The Jaguars added Colorado WR Laviska Shenault in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Shenault looks like a RB playing WR. At 6’1 and 227 pounds, he’s an inch taller and a pound lighter than Ezekiel Elliott. As you’d expect, Shenault is awesome with the ball in his hands. His 44 missed tackles forced over the last 2 seasons are tops among all draft-eligible WRs. Colorado also regularly used Shenault on handoffs, end-arounds and even at Wildcat QB. He compiled a 42-280-7 rushing line over the past 3 seasons. We were also impressed with Shenault’s speed, ball-tracking ability and contested-catch skills on tape. His upside is a bigger version of Deebo Samuel. Shenault is on the raw side as a route runner, though. And durability is a concern. He missed 4 games over the last 2 years and has had foot, shoulder and core-muscle surgeries in the past 15 months. Shenault has a shot to earn a significant rookie-year role with D.J. Chark, Dede Westbrook and Chris Conley as the competition for playing time. QB play in Jacksonville, both short and long term, is a potential problem.
