WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Laviska Shenault Jr. | Jaguars WR

The Jaguars activated Laviska Shenault Jr. from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Jacksonville still has a bunch of players on the COVID list ahead of Week 17 against the Patriots, but at least Shenault and several others were cleared today. The second-year receiver is not a highly recommended fantasy option in championship matchups.

Laviska Shenault Jr. has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

He joins star pass rusher Josh Allen on the list, so Jacksonville will be down at least two key players for this weekend against the Jets. Hopefully Shenault can get healthy soon, and the team will rely on Laquon Treadwell as their clear No. 2 wideout until he returns.

Laviska Shenault Jr.'s shoulder injury is "minor".

[UPDATE:  Shenault is expected to play in Week 3, according to head coach Urban Meyer.] ESPN's Jeremy Fowler says that after the MRI, Shenault's injury "turned out to be minor." We'll see if a more definite timeline on Shenault's status pops up soon, but he might have a shot to play in Week 3.

Laviska Shenault is dealing with a shoulder injury.

Shenault is set to get an MRI tomorrow to determine the extent of the injury, so we should get a timeline tomorrow if the second-year receiver is set to miss any time. Shenault had two catches for -3 yards in today's loss to the Broncos.

The Jaguars have selected Colorado wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. with the No. 42 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Shenault Jr. is a physical creator in the mold of the 49ers' Deebo Samuel, and the Jaguars would be wise to use him in a similar way as a rookie to maximize his impact. If not for injury concerns, Shenault Jr. probably could have went higher than this, and his Year 1 value will be largely depends on staying healthy and how many manufactured touches he gets in Jacksonville.
