2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Cecil Shorts enters 2014 as the most successful fantasy wideout on the team. He also will try to help fans and fantasy owners forget the frustration of Justin Blackmon. Yet a calf injury for the second consecutive preseason has kept Jacksonville's top receiver sidelined for most of mini-camp practices. A return during training camp is likely, however, past shoulder and concussion injuries added to the negative perception around Jacksonville's lack of passing game will keep Shorts' 2014 projections at bay. Despite the inherent injury risks, Shorts represents a player entering a contract year who should consistently see balls thrown his way. Last year, he saw double-digit targets in nine of his 13 games. That trend should continue, making him a stronger value in deeper PPR leagues.

Comment: Shorts (hamstring) has miss a couple weeks of camp. His nagging offseason injuries are a concern.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Shorts feels "rusty" in return to practice
First real practice since April
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 17, 1:36 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars standout receiver Cecil Shorts used the same word four times to describe his first practice in over three weeks. Rusty. "It felt good to be back out there with the guys," Shorts said. "I'm definitely rusty. So, I've got to continue to work and to not get frustrated. I understand this is really my first practice since April." (Florida Times-Union)

FFToday's Take: Shorts has missed a good chunk of the preseason with hamstring issues but hopes to be ready for Week 1. He'll be monitored closely and any setback over the next couple weeks will certainly cause his ADP to plunge even further. His injury risk has caused him to drop into the 11th-round (WR52) in standard scoring 12-team leagues.


Injury Cecil Shorts bothered by nagging injuries
Pulled from practice due to tightness in hamstring
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jul 25, 7:00 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Receiver Cecil Shorts was pulled from practice because of tightness in his hamstring. Shorts’ 2013 preseason was derailed by a strained calf and he was limited throughout the off-season program because of a similar injury. And today, he was held out of practice at the end with the hamstring problem. (Florida Times Union)

FFToday's Take: With Justin Blackmon suspended indefinitely, Ace Sanders serving a four-game suspension and two rookies likely to see significant playing time, the Jaguars will need Shorts on the field more than ever this season. Shorts' injury risk is growing by the day and something fantasy owners should take note of.


Injury Jags receivers missing from mini-camp
Shorts not expected to practice all week
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 17, 2:10 pm

Jacksonville Jaguars
Not practicing for the Jaguars: WR Marqise Lee (ankle), WR Cecil Shorts (calf), WR Allen Robinson (hamstring), WR Tandon Doss (calf). (Florida Times Union)

FFToday's Take: Head coach Gus Bradley has stated that Shorts won't practice at all this week. Shorts' injury history is becoming lengthy and is the main reason his ADP is hovering around Round 10 in 12-team re-draft leagues. He should be ready to participate in training camp.


Injury Jags thin at receiver during OTAs
Shorts, Sanders and both rookies nursing injuries
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jun 9, 7:00 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
With seven of the 11 receivers — including veteran Cecil Shorts and second-round picks Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson — out with various ailments, the group consisted of Kerry Taylor and three players who’ve yet to appear in a regular-season NFL game. Taylor and the other three weren’t drafted. (Florida Times Union)

FFToday's Take: Both rookies, Lee (ankle) and Robinson (hamstring) are not expected to participate in Monday's OTA session. Ace Sanders is also missing time due to a hamstring injury while Shorts is sitting out with a calf injury. "I’ll try to go back there Monday, but it’s out of my control. It’s the time of year to kind of chill,” Shorts said. "No need to rush it."
