Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

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 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.
