Laviska Shenault Fantasy Outlook 2021: Where Will He Rank vs. All Wide Receivers?

The team is almost unanimously enamored with Laviska Shenault, but some think that it could take some time for the Jaguars to get going. One analyst said, “I believe Shenault will end the season strong, but the offense as a whole may take a little while to get up to speed with rookie QB Lawrence.”, while another said, “Definitely a guy I’d target for long term. I just think it takes a little while to develop with the new staff and QB.”

Overall, the team believes that Shenault will improve upon his rookie season. Another analyst said, “I feel like Jacksonville is going to use Shenault in a lot of ways and he will end up leading them in targets and receptions” and had the following to say, “I believe that Laviska is the perfect player for Urban Meyer’s offense. Shenaultigans all over the place.”

When it was all said and done, the 13 analysts predicted where Shenault would finish.

High: WR24
Low: WR30.

A finish of a back-end WR2 or high WR3 would be a solid second season for Shenault considering where the Jaguars are at as an organization.
