Laviska Shenault, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
Shenault did not get a rushing attempt for the first time this season against the Houston Texans in Week 5, but he did snag seven of his eight targets for 79 yards. He has posted double-digit PPR fantasy points in four of five game to open his rookie season.
In Week 6 Shenault gets a good matchup against the Detroit Lions, who had bye in Week 5 but entered the week allowing the seventh-most fantasy points to wide receivers (Yahoo 0.5-point PPR scoring). Then he gets more good matchups- the Los Angeles Chargers (Week 7 now), the Texans again (Week 9), the Pittsburgh Steelers (Week 11), the Cleveland Browns (Week 12), the Minnesota Vikings (Week 13) and the Tennessee Titans (Week 14).
It looks like Jacksonville’s bye has been bumped from Week 7 to Week 8, so be aware of that. Regardless, Shenault is on the upswing and worth owning as a WR3/WR4 in 12-team leagues with slightly more appeal in PPR formats.
