2021 Fantasy Outlook
It’s hard to evaluate Shenault’s rookie season. For starters, he missed the better part of three games with a hamstring injury, and he also played in a dysfunctional offense with a struggling Gardner Minshew and an even worse Mike Glennon and Jake Luton. At 6-1, 227, Shenault is built more like a power running back than a wideout, and he actually took 18 carries for 91 yards in addition to his 79 targets. Shenault’s 4.58 40 time was below par, but he was battling a core muscle injury during the 2020 NFL Combine, after which he had surgery. This year, he’ll have competition for targets in both DJ Chark and newly signed Marvin Jones, but the Jaguars have no tight end of whom to speak, little depth beyond Shenault at receiver and should see a massive upgrade at quarterback with No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence.

Shoulder
September 20, 2021
Coach Urban Meyer said Monday that Shenault (shoulder) "should" be available Week 3 versus the Cardinals, John Shipley of SI.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Shenault managed to avoid a serious shoulder injury after being forced out of Sunday's loss to the Broncos, and John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports that he's expected to practice this week. While it would be good news if Shenault can return to game action without any absences, it may be difficult to rely on him for fantasy purposes versus Arizona. Before being forced out versus Denver, the second-year wideout only had two catches for minus-3 yards, despite having drawn seven targets.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Drafted 42nd overall this year, Shenault found a good landing spot. While DJ Chark looks like an emerging star, the Jaguars were otherwise thin at receiver, with only the disappointing Dede Westbrook and Chris Conley around to compete for targets, and no heavily targeted tight ends of which to speak. At 6-1, 227, Shenault is densely built like A.J. Brown, but probably not as fast (though his subpar 4.58 at the combine was marred by a core muscle injury that required surgery shortly thereafter). Still, Shenault is a load to bring down after the catch, and he accelerates quickly for a player his size. He'll have to beat out Conley and Westbrook for targets opposite Chark, but the Jaguars are betting he can, given where they took him.
