I don't own Shenault but figured I would pass this along to you guys from Gruden's press conference today regarding him:   Gruden on Shenault, who had five receptions for 86 yards against the B

Starting a rookie Jaguars "gadget" WR on Thursday Night Football so I can either crow or vent about it after is why I play fantasy football.

higher than zero chance? Lol thanks Nostradamus

I'm all for it either way, but I never really understood the train of thought here. A slotted WR that gets RB snaps is pretty much always more valuable than a slotted RB who gets WR snaps with few exceptions (Ekeler). You're two starting RB slots should be filled with actual RBs getting the majority of backfield touches, even for PPR. A player like Shenault is an ideal flex and hopefully works himself up to a WR2.

In one of the leagues in which I own him, I am very thin at RB. If he miraculously winds up with dual eligibility, I'd be more comfortable throwing him into a RB slot than some trash off the end of my bench for a bye week or injury fill-in. It's full PPR, so he also carries a relatively solid floor compared to a low-end RB. Also, it ultimately just gives owners more flexibility with their lineups, which is always a good thing. 

Either way, I'm not loosing any sleep waiting for it to happen since it's still largely an unlikely proposition at this point.

He feels a bit like a solid-floor (due to the rushing), low-ceiling (due to the relatively limited touches, though hopefully this trends up over time) player at the moment, but I don’t think I’d feel comfortable throwing him in yet unless Chark actually sits.

As a point of reference, I’d consider starting him if Chark sits this week over DJ and Gibson.

Might throw him in over fuller at this point, seems like hes got a solid enough floor but we havent seen his ceiling. Hard to say for sure though, hes such an unknown a 1 reception, 2 rush attempt type game doesnt feel out of the range of opportunities. Not sure here

I just did this in my league. Fuller to the bench..Shenault to start.

Definitely worth a start if Chark is out

 

Actually, I think he's worth a start even if (and maybe even a little more so) Chark is out. Reason being, Chark should get Howard in coverage. 

I'm flexing Laviska with cautious optimism.

Don't forget if you start him tonight, put him in your WR spot and not in your flex.  Need to keep that flex spot available in case of an unexpected injury between now and Sunday.

 

Spot on brother. Great advice!

Welcome to the forums BTW!
