Jaguars | Cecil Shorts misses practice

Thu, 14 Nov 2013 16:12:45 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (groin) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts was limited in yesterday's practice, so there is some mild concern here, although it's possible Jacksonville is just resting him. Opposing defenses will pay more attention to Shorts for the rest of the year now that Justin Blackmon is out. They'll likely be forced to throw often to play catch up, though, meaning he'll have his opportunities. Consider him more of a WR3.

Jaguars | Justin Blackmon suspended indefinitely

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 13:11:35 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL's policy and program for substances of abuse. Blackmon will be eligible to apply for reinstatement prior to the 2014 season.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look to drop Blackmon because he will not play again this season. With Blackmon out, Cecil Shorts likely will have more fantasy value since he will be the team's top receiver. Owners in deeper leagues should consider adding Mike Brown if he is available in their leagues.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts likely game-time decision

Thu, 17 Oct 2013 14:07:09 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) will likely be a game-time decision against the San Diego Chargers in Week 7. Also, WR Ace Sanders (concussion) hasn't practiced all week and is unlikely to play. The swelling in Shorts' shoulder has subsided, but he's still dealing with some pain. "I ran around today in walk-through and felt pretty good," Shorts said. "It's going to hurt. So we'll see how it goes. No decision yet but I'm excited about my chances." Shorts was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 17, and head coach Gus Bradley said he won't practice Friday, Oct. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts will be tested Sunday morning to see if he'll go, and it'll likely come down to pain tolerance. With Sanders also out, Mike Brown is likely to see his playing time increase dramatically, but not enough to consider starting him. Look for other options and prepare to be without Shorts.

That was a good sign."
