March 21, 2019
O'shaughnessy signed a contract with Jacksonville on Thursday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.
O'Shaughnessy will be entering his fifth season in 2019 and his third with the Jaguars. He hasn't had much of a role in the passing game thus far in his career. He recorded 214 yards on 24 catches, both career highs, while playing in 14 games last season. He'll likely operate primarily as a blocker and backup tight end once again in 2019.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
