O'Shaughnessy had his best season as a pro last year, catching 24 passes for 214 yards. He failed to score a touchdown but did have multiple receptions seven of 14 games. He got some weekly chances in a reserve role for the Jaguars, a role he is expected to play again this year. He has 38 receptions the past two seasons with the Jaguars. O'Shaughnessy is a top athlete and can stretch the field in a hurry. He has good hands and runs solid routes. He lacks a little strength, though, and isn't a great blocker at this stage of his career.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: O'Shaughnessy won't get a ton of chances in his current role. He should post similar numbers to last year. Look for around 20 catches for 200 yards with a score. He needs injury hit to get more targets in the passing game.

Jacksonville Jaguars TE James O'Shaughnessy (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list on Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end James O'Shaughnessy tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2019 NFL season. O'Shaughnessy's fifth NFL season was off to a good start, as he'd grabbed 14 passes for 153 yards and two touchdowns in five games. Expect more Geoff Swaim moving forward, though Swaim is unlikely be fantasy relevant outside of very deep leagues.
Jacksonville Jaguars TE James O'Shaughnessy (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers and will miss the remainder of the season.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end James O'Shaughnessy caught three passes for 57 yards in Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted four times and has now seen four or more targets in four of Jacksonville's five games. O'Shaughnessy isn't quite to the level where he should be started in fantasy leagues, but he may have some value as a deep-league streamer based on his recent usage and the chances of him finding the end zone, which he's done twice this year.
Jacksonville Jaguars TE James O'Shaughnessy (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 5 game and will not return.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end brought in one of his four targets in Sunday's win over the Denver Broncos, but that one catch was an 18-yard touchdown. Despite the score, the Jaguars just don't make enough use of their tight ends to make O'Shaughnessy a fantasy option moving forward. He's the fifth or sixth option on a run-first team and shouldn't be owned outside of deep TE-premium leagues.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end James O'Shaughnessy had two receptions for 18 yards during the win over the Titans on Thursday, pulling in a touchdown pass from quarterback Gardner Minshew II early in the first quarter. The 27-year-old still hasn't done enough to justify his presence in virtually all formats, however, but fantasy managers will want to keep an eye on his progress in the weeks ahead.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end James O'Shaughnessy caught four passes for 32 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He was targeted five times. O'Shaughnessy was more involved than expected in Sunday's game and while rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew will likely look to make some safe throws as he transitions into the starting role, the Jaguars just don't target their tight ends enough for O'Shaughnessy to make sense as a fantasy option at this point.
