2020 Fantasy Outlook
O'Shaughnessy suffered a torn ACL Week 5 against the Panthers and was lost for the season, interrupting his most productive outing with three catches for 57 yards. He started the first five games and totaled 14 receptions for 153 yards and two scores, which put him on pace for a career year. Tyler Eifert will enter camp as the starter after signing as a free agent, while Tyler Davis battles O'Shaughnessy -- assuming he's healthy -- for the No. 2 spot. Read Past Outlooks

September 20, 2020
O'Shaughnessy caught all four of his targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Titans.
ANALYSIS
The 28-year-old and starter Tyler Eifert combined for only two targets in the season opener, and they mirrored each other's workload again in Week 2 (three catches for 36 yards), though Eifert also had a touchdown. The pair are splitting playing time early on this season, and unless O'Shaughnessy ends up claiming a significantly larger role, he's unlikely to be fantasy relevant.

2020 Training Camp Preview: Jacksonville Jaguars

After back-to-back lackluster campaigns, the Jaguars will look to second-year QB Gardner Minshew to turn things around in 2020.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2017
2016
2015
O'Shaughnessy ended up starting nine games for the Jags in 2018 and more than doubled his offensive snap total from the previous season, but he still only managed 24 receptions for 214 yards and zero TDs in 14 overall contests. The 27-year-old seems likely to make the 53-man roster but is poised to serve mostly as a blocker behind Geoff Swaim and rookie Josh Oliver. O'Shaughnessy could see expanded opportunities in training camp since Oliver suffered a hamstring injury early on.
O'Shaughnessy doesn't offer much as a receiver with eight career catches over his first two NFL seasons, but he should be a serviceable blocking tight end in run-heavy formations. From a fantasy perspective, his upside is modest.
An impressive 2015 rookie training camp led many to believe O'Shaughnessy could see significant reps, but it translated to just six grabs for 87 yards in the regular season. He and Demetrius Harris will likely duke it out for the No. 2 tight end job, but that slot generally holds little fantasy value. A successful camp could lead to more two tight-end sets, but it would probably require an injury to Travis Kelce for the Illinois State product to move into the spotlight.
O’Shaughnessy was selected by the Chiefs in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. In his senior season at Illinois State, the young tight end hauled in 29 passes for 544 and nine touchdowns in 12 games. While Travis Kelce remains locked in as the Chiefs’ top tight end heading into 2015, Anthony Fasano’s offseason departure leaves a bit of a void for the the second spot on the depth chart. Demetrius Harris enters training camp as the favorite to win the job, but a strong showing in camp and the preseason could propel O’Shaughnessy into some meaningful regular season snaps.
