Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • The Jaguars sport arguably the worst TE group in the league: O’Shaughnessy, Chris Manhertz (12 career catches), Luke Farrell (rookie), Tyler Davis (2020 6th-rounder) and Ben Ellefson (2020 UDFA).
    • Manhertz got a 2-year, $6.65 million deal in free agency but is in Jacksonville mostly to block. He has 12 catches across 5 NFL seasons.
    • Farrell is a 5th-round rookie out of Ohio State. He totaled 34 receptions in 4 college seasons.
    • Davis was a 2020 6th-rounder and didn’t hit the stat sheet as a rookie.
    • Ellefson was a 2020 undrafted free agent.
  • As you might have heard, the Jaguars signed Tim Tebow as a TE in May. But he’s not a great bet to even make the team -- and doesn’t figure to play traditional TE if he does.
  • So O’Shaughnessy looks like the best bet for targets in this group.
  • The 2015 5th-round pick out of Illinois State goes 6’4, 248 pounds with above-average athleticism.
  • He caught just 8 balls across his first 2 NFL seasons in Kansas City but has totaled 80 over the past 4 years with the Jaguars.
  • He set career highs last season with 28 catches and 262 yards, despite playing behind Tyler Eifert.
  • O’Shaughnessy was average in most efficiency metrics. Among 44 TEs with 30+ targets, he ranked 23rd in yards per target and 26th in yards per route run. He finished 27th in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grades.
  • The Jaguars got a big QB upgrade when they selected Trevor Lawrence with the #1 overall pick of this year’s draft.
  • Jacksonville has a nice WR trio in D.J. Chark, Laviska Shenault and Marvin Jones. Rookie RB Travis Etienne figures to play a big role in the passing game. So even if O’Shaughnessy wins the starting TE job, he’ll likely be no better than 5th in line for targets.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

O’Shaughnessy is the definition of a JAG (Just A Guy). He has 88 catches and a 9.8 yards-per-catch average across 6 NFL seasons.

You’re only reading about him here because Jacksonville’s TE depth chart is so weak that O’Shaughnessy looks like the favorite to lead the group in targets. The bar for TE relevancy is low. So if O’Shaughnessy can see something like 4 targets per game, he might hit the radar as a spot-start option in deeper leagues. But that’s the ceiling.

The Jaguars will be without TE James O-Shaughnessy (high-ankle sprain) for “several weeks,” per beat writer Mark Long. Rookie Luke Farrell ran 20 routes in Week 2, while veteran Chris Manhertz ran only 11. They combined for 3 targets, 1 catch and 6 yards. Ignore both guys in fantasy leagues.

Update: O'Shaughnessy has been placed on IR, so he's out at least the next 3 weeks.

Jaguars TE James O'Shaughnessy has been diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season. O'Shaughnessy was quietly averaging 4 targets and 2.8 catches per game. His absence leaves TE Geoff Swaim atop the depth chart, although Jacksonville is expected to get rookie TE Josh Oliver (hamstring) back soon.

Jaguars TE James O’Shaughnessy (hip) is active for today’s game against the Colts. He should serve as Jacksonville’s lead TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.
