Laviska Shenault Fantasy Football News 2020

Jaguars WRs D.J. Chark (ribs) and Chris Conley (hip) are out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. WR Laviska Shenault is set to return from his hamstring injury and will join WR Keelan Cole atop the depth chart. Rookie Collin Johnson figures to operate as the #3 WR. It’s probably a situation to avoid with QB Mike Glennon making his 1st start with Jacksonville — but you can make an argument for Shenault and Cole as WR4s.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. D.J. Chark, Keelan Cole and Chris Conley will again serve as Jacksonville's top 3 WRs in that one.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Packers. He’ll be replaced in the starting lineup by WR Chris Conley, who would be a desperation fantasy play.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) got "good news" on his MRI and "has a chance" to play against the Packers on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll monitor the rookie's practice participation this week, although he probably shouldn't be in your Week 10 fantasy plans coming off this injury.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault injured his hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Texans and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

A member of Jacksonville's practice squad tested positive for COVID on Friday night, the team announced. The Jaguars are still planning on playing vs. the Lions on Sunday, but the situation obviously bears monitoring over the next 24 hours.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was sidelined on Wednesday but practiced on Thursday and Friday. The rookie should be ready for his usual role against the Lions this weekend.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. He's unlikely to play against the Lions this weekend. WR Laviska Shenault (hamstring) returned to a limited practice today. We're expecting him to suit up vs. Detroit but will get another update on his status tomorrow.

Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. The rookie's status has taken on increased importance with WR D.J. Chark iffy for Week 6 with his ankle injury. We'll get another update on both wideouts tomorrow.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (ankle) won't practice on Wednesday. At this point, fantasy owners shouldn't be planning on having him in Week 6 lineups. Chark's absence would be an upgrade for WR Laviska Shenault but a downgrade for QB Gardner Minshew.

Jaguars WR D.J. Chark (back, chest) has been downgraded to out for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins. His status for Week 4 and beyond is uncertain. Chark's absence tonight leaves Keelan Cole and Laviska Shenault as Jacksonville's top 2 WRs. It might also mean an extra target or 2 or TE Tyler Eifert.

Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook is a healthy scratch for today's opener vs. the Colts. That leaves D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault and Chris Conley as Jacksonville's top 3 WRs. Chark is a strong fantasy play, while Westbrook's absence makes Shenault a more intriguing DFS tournament play.

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.
