Gardner Minshew46.430.4322.52.180.656.230.40.0323.54

Trevor Lawrence: The top overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Lawrence has the arm talent to make any throw and is a plus athlete with the ability to extend plays or be used on designed runs. With a top-10 fantasy strength of schedule and the likelihood to trail in most of their games, Lawrence is a high-end QB2 with upside heading into his rookie campaign.

James Robinson160.3705.34.8134.9256.81.8153.32
Carlos Hyde24.7103.70.49530.70.220.08

Travis Etienne: A two-time ACC Offensive Player of the Year, Etienne surprised many by returning to school for another season. As impressive as James Robinson was as a rookie (UDFA), Etienne's talent and (first-round) draft pedigree make him the favorite to emerge as the team's primary back sooner than later even if Robinson gets more touches in Week 1.

James Robinson: Robinson had modest performances in Weeks 14 and 15 and missed Weeks 16 and 17. Before that, however, he was the favorite for 2020 Fantasy Football MVP (if such an award actually existed).

As lead back of a one-win team, the UDFA was fourth in half-PPR fantasy points, fourth in YFS and third in touches through Week 13. Robinson has shown he can be highly effective as the featured back, but a new coaching staff and a first-round running back joining the mix could lead to a diminishing role as the season progresses.


Laviska Shenault85.39136.115.676.40.31180.05
D.J. Chark75.21000.
Marvin Jones63.2794.55.1000141.65
Collin Johnson16.1219.51.800040.8
Jamal Agnew10109.
Phillip Dorsett454.90.40009.89

Laviska Shenault: Shenault Jr. played only 10 snaps in Week 9 and then missed the following two games. Outside of those three games, the rookie had a minimum of three receptions in every game. Over the final five games of the season, he had 25 catches (on 36 targets) for 246 yards and four touchdowns and added six carries for 31 yards and he was the WR16 (half-PPR) over that stretch.

D.J. Chark: Chark had 73 catches for 1,008 yards and eight touchdowns in 2019, but he missed three games in 2020 and averaged 12.9 yards per game less he did in 2019. There is the potential for a bounce-back in his age-25 season with improved quarterback play, but missed time (broken finger, surgery) will slow his ability to build chemistry with Trevor Lawrence. Chark is expected to be ready for Week 1.

Marvin Jones: Jones averaged 61.1 YPG -- a three-year high -- last season and has averaged no less than 56.4 YPG over the past five years. In addition, he has scored nine touchdowns in three of his past four seasons. While Chark is a bounce-back candidate and Shenault Jr. is a breakout candidate, Jones is a solid depth option later in drafts.


James O'Shaughnessy39.14062.300073.95
Chris Manhertz887.80.500015.78
Luke Farrell550.50.30009.35
Ben Ellefson219.80.10003.58

James O'Shaughnessy: With Tyler Eifert no longer on the roster, O'Shaughnessy tops the depth chart entering 2021. At a minimum, he should build upon his 28/262/0 receiving line and there is some deep sleeper appeal in TE-premium leagues.
