2018 Fantasy Outlook
Shaw entered fall camp prior to the 2017 campaign as the expected starter for Wisconsin after impressing to the tune of 5.2 yards per carry as a freshman in 2016. He indeed held that role out of camp and performed well in the season opener, rushing 18 times for 84 yards and a score. A leg injury in the opener left the door open for freshman Jonathan Taylor, however, and Shaw would never see the starting role again. Shaw suffered another leg injury late in the season that carried over into the spring and is expected to cost him the season opener in 2018, clouding exactly how much he will be available for the Badgers. When healthy, he should work behind Taylor but ahead of Chris James, Garrett Groshek and Taiwan Deal. However, the trio behind him could see additional work early if he requires additional recovery time. Read Past Outlooks
Limited during spring drills

March 25, 2019
Shaw will be limited in spring practices, Zach Heilprin of 1670 AM The Zone reports.
ANALYSIS
Shaw was plagued by knee and hip injuries throughout the 2018 season, which resulted in him never seeing a carry despite being cleared by doctors late in the year. He'll remain limited as the team now starts to focus on 2019 with their spring practices, but there's currently little reason to believe he'll be held without any touches for the second year in a row. The Alabama native has 822 yards and nine touchdowns in his career and is one of the favorites to backup Jonathan Taylor for the Badgers.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Shaw joined the Badger backfield as a redshirt freshman in 2016 and displayed enough burst and power to earn himself the backup role behind senior tailback Corey Clement, finishing with 88 carries for 457 yards and five touchdowns. Although Clement departed via graduation, Shaw -- now a sophomore -- faces new competition in the form of Pittsburgh transfer Chris James. The tailbacks' complementary running styles and the lack of an established passing game could lead to strong workloads for both in 2017. However, Shaw caught just one pass last season (an area of proficiency for James), potentially limiting the sophomore's playing time to early downs. One or both figure to contribute heavily in Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst's gameplan this season, but it wouldn't be surprising if the two both near 1,000 yards rushing. Shaw's size and physical running style could help him become the go-to option in goal line situations.
