Sat, 26 Jul 2014 11:25:17 -0700

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts learning at Larry Fitzgerald's camp

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 11:37:46 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts is specifically learning how to run a better comeback route at Larry Fitzgerald's football camp in Minnesota this week. Shorts said Fitzgerald made sure he was dropping his weight and making the right turn on what Shorts said is a tough route to run.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts will be Jacksonville's primary receiving threat this season with Justin Blackmon's absence. His situation is less than savory, however, with QB Chad Henne at quarterback and a subpar offense in general. Consider him a flex option with WR3 potential in standard leagues.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts not fully recovered

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 20:49:57 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (groin) is still not quite at full strength, but he said Wednesday, April 23, that he expects to be soon. "I'm on the right path where I'm able to run without any pain," Shorts said. "I still have some work to do and I'm not 100 percent yet, but I'm looking to get there soon. Now, I have to get my strength back and confidence back." Head coach Gus Bradley said Shorts' rehab has gone well, and the receiver is leaner and in great shape.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts is entering the final year of his four-year deal, so if he can stay healthy he will be playing for a big pay day next offseason. That makes him a nice fantasy sleeper.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts isn't an overly exciting option for your receiving corps, but he should suffice as a WR3 or flex against the Bills, a defense that has been known to give up big passing plays this year.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (groin) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.

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.
