Gardner Minshew547.9347.93862.724.668.77552420.83264.79
While the Jags are the early favorites to win the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes, there is little competition for Minshew in 2020. As a rookie, Minshew threw for 3,271 yards, 21 touchdowns and six interceptions. An underrated aspect of his game is his rushing ability as Minshew averaged 5.1 YPC and gained 344 yards on the ground. Only four quarterbacks -- Lamar Jackson (1,206), Kyler Murray (544), Josh Allen (510) and Deshaun Watson (413) -- rushed for more.
Mike Glennon38.123.2247.71.680.994.96.10.0215.38


Leonard Fournette220.1913.46.4946.1331.90.81168.33
While he only scored three touchdowns in 2019, Fournette ranked third in the NFL in touches (341) and converted his 100 targets into 76 catches for 522 yards. Despite the lack of touchdowns, he was the only player in the league to get 100% of his team's carries inside the five.
Chris Thompson31.4127.20.6340.9321.12.0560.91
Reunited with Jay Gruden, Thompson has at least 35 receptions in five consecutive seasons, but he has also missed five or more games in each of the past three years. While durability has been a challenge for Thompson, the third-down back has averaged 3.43 receptions per game (equivalent to 54.93 per 16 games) over that five-year stretch.
Ryquell Armstead37.3147.30.56756.70.2825.44
Devine Ozigbo20.681.40.312.6200.0512.3

D.J. Chark72.7992.46.91214.40.04142.38
Chark broke out in 2019 with 73 catches (on 118 targets) for 1,008 yards and eight touchdowns. With a new offensive coordinator (Jay Gruden), can Shark build upon his 2019 breakout in his age-24 season?
Dede Westbrook59616.63.694.930.40.187.44
With exactly 101 targets and 66 receptions in back-to-back seasons, Westbrook has averaged a consistent-but-mediocre 44.0 YPG (2019) and 44.8 YPG (2018) as well. Westbrook was the WR45 (half-PPR scoring) last year and is a low-upside option with a little more appeal in PPR formats compared to non-PPR leagues.
Laviska Shenault42.5499.43.7216.790.20.6785.3
Built more like a running back than a wide receiver, Shenault is dangerous in the open field and has drawn praise from his quarterback. "Laviska is a freak, man. I knew it when we played him at Colorado," Minshew said. "He’s a lot better route runner, a lot better at catching the ball than I even expected."
Chris Conley33.74603.0300064.18
Conley either set or tied previous career highs with 47 receptions for 775 yards and five touchdowns. While Conley averaged a career-high 16.5 Y/R, he had a career-low catch rate (52.2%).
Keelan Cole6.689.80.4600011.74
Collin Johnson2.430.60.240004.5


Tyler Eifert404503.600066.6
After playing just 14 games in the previous three seasons combined, Eifert played a full 16-game slate in 2019 and finished with 43 catches for 436 yards and three touchdowns. If he is able to put together another healthy season (granted, a big if), Eifert has the potential to flirt with top-12 numbers in Jay Gruden's TE-friendly offense.
James O'Shaughnessy16.8165.51.0100022.61
With Josh Oliver breaking his foot and Eifert's shaky durability history, O'Shaughnessy, who's returning from a torn ACL himself, could have some streamer appeal if Eifert misses any time in 2020. O'Shaughnessy was the TE13 through Week 5 (when he tore his ACL) last season.
Josh Oliver4.444.90.370006.71
