Texans | Cecil Shorts likely to remain in Houston

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 15:18:46 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts is expected to remain with the team for the final season of the two-year, $6 million deal he signed last season.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts continued to live up to his injury-prone reputation last season, dealing with hamstring problems and a dislocated shoulder that limited him to 11 games. Ideally, Jaelen Strong will take the next step in his development, which would allow Shorts to be more of a part-time player and work out of the slot. As things stand now, Shorts is no more than end-of-the-roster depth in most leagues.

Texans | Cecil Shorts, Nate Washington probable

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 12:50:43 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and WR Nate Washington (hip) are listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 9. Shorts fully participated in the team's walkthrough Friday, Jan. 8, while Washington was limited.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Washington ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should have role in the passing game against the Chiefs. Neither receiver posted big numbers during the regular season but could have some success this week since the Chiefs had some problems stopping receivers during the regular season. Both players could be cheaper options on FantasyScore, but owners should not expect big numbers.

Texans | Full practice for three Texans

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 13:24:25 -0800

Houston Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (hand) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and RB Chris Polk (knee) were full participants in practice Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like the Texans will have their three top wide receivers playing together in the playoffs, assuming Nate Washington is good to go. Hopkins ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) is obviously a top wide receiver play this week against the Kansas City Chiefs, but Shorts ($3,700, 7.4%) is a decent sleeper, especially for a PPR scoring format like FantasyScore. As for Polk, he may not be utilized enough with Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes also in the mix, so there are better options at running back than him.

Texans | Three Texans limited Wednesday

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 13:31:33 -0800

Houston Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (hand) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and RB Alfred Blue (calf) were limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to believe that any of these guys would miss the playoffs this Saturday. It will be promising if any of them have a full practice, but they should still be able to play, particularly Hopkins. The Kansas City Chiefs are in the top ten in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers, too, so Hopkins remains a solid play for those in playoff leagues. Blue, on the other hand, is not an advisable option as the Chiefs boast a top-five fantasy defense against running backs.

Texans | Cecil Shorts could play

Mon, 04 Jan 2016 13:10:34 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) has a chance to play in the Wild Card round of the playoffs this weekend, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts was a solid PPR wide receiver this season when he was healthy. The Kansas City Chiefs have been lenient versus wide receivers this year, too, so he's not the worst starting choice if you have fantasy playoff teams.

Texans | Cecil Shorts ruled out

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 14:34:59 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and has been ruled out for the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Nate Washington ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could receive more targets with Shorts out of the lineup. He caught a touchdown pass in Week 16 but has not posted great numbers over the last several weeks. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Texans | Cecil Shorts does not practice

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 15:21:22 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Shorts ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) probably will not be able to play in the final regular season game, so owners should look for other options to use in their lineups.

Texans | Cecil Shorts sits out

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:32:12 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) hasn't caught a pass since Dec. 13 and isn't a viable fantasy starter, even if he plays in a great matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars with Brian Hoyer returning at quarterback.
