Dede Westbrook — It’s hard to penalize a guy for getting hurt, but considering the Jaguars used a second-round pick on receiver Laviska Shenault and a fifth-rounder on Collin Johnson — and both at times have looked impressive in camp — you worry a little for Westbrook.
Westbrook bruised his shoulder a week ago and was on the injury report with neck/shoulder injuries since mid-October of last year. Last season, he ranked second on the team behind Pro Bowl receiver D.J. Chark with 101 targets, and produced 66 catches for 660 yards and three scores. But his punt return average dipped from 14 yards a return to 5.7 a return.
JAX WR Laviska Shenault - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 at Tennessee Titans
In his first NFL game, Laviska Shenault was targeted four times, leading to three grabs for 37 yards and a score. In an effort to try to get him the ball in space, the rookie also ran twice for 10 yards. Although Gardner Minshew threw just 20 passes to 10 different pass catchers, it was good for owners to see Shenault already part of the offense. In his first road contest, he makes for a WR3/flex play.
