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.

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 05:18:34 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) was ruled out for Week 16 due to a hamstring injury. WR Jaelen Strong will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Strong ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) isn't the best flyer to take a chance on against the Tennessee Titans on FantasyScore.

Texans | Cecil Shorts does not practice

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 14:54:48 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has missed the last two days of practice and probably will not be able to play in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans. Owners probably should avoid him even if he is active for the game.

Texans | Cecil Shorts sits out practice

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 15:17:48 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, Shorts ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has some appeal in deep PPR formats, but he should be viewed as a risky start in Week 16, including at FantasyScore. Stay tuned for updates, but the veteran receiver's fantasy value is trending in the wrong direction down the stretch.

Texans | T.J. Yates, Cecil Shorts out

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 11:44:36 -0800

Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates (knee) and WR Cecil Shorts (groin) have been ruled out for the rest of the game in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: With Yates and Shorts out, Brandon Weeden and DeAndre Hopkins could become the new hookup for the Texans. Nate Washington and Ryan Griffin may also see more targets. Brian Hoyer may return next week, though, so stay tuned to Houston's quarterback situation.

Texans | Cecil Shorts quiet in loss

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 22:49:52 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts had two receptions for just nine yards and he ran twice for no gain in Week 14 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts had been coming on lately, but the Houston offense was shut down in the loss. Shorts could be a nice contrarian play heading into Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts and their leaky pass defense.

Texans | Cecil Shorts active for SNF

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 16:36:23 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is active for the Week 14 game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts could be the best receiving option for the Texans, as the Patriots tend to key on the top receiver of the opponent, and that is DeAndre Hopkins.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins, Cecil Shorts probable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 16:11:39 -0800

Houston Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) are both probable to face the New England Patriots in Week 14. Hopkins was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 11, while Shorts practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans will surely have to pass often to keep up with a Patriots team trying to end a two-game skid. That means Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) should remain heavily involved, although the Pats will do everything in their power to shut him down. Shorts ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has deep sleeper potential after a six-catch, 10-target, 91-yard game last week.

Texans | Cecil Shorts listed as limited

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 16:31:52 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Shorts' ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) status for the rest of the week to see if he will be able to play against the New England Patriots. He has been a bit inconsistent over the last few weeks but could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

Texans | Cecil Shorts does it all

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 17:06:28 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts had two catches for 51 yards, four carries for 26 yards and threw a 21-yard touchdown pass in a 24-17 over the New York Jets in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts had been used strictly as a receiver coming into the game, but if the Texans are committed to using him in different ways, it could boost his value going forward.

Texans | Nate Washington, Cecil Shorts do little

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 21:40:23 -0800

Houston Texans WRs Nate Washington and Cecil Shorts III did very little in Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Nov. 16. Washington posted two catches for 32 yards on five targets, while Shorts had three grabs for 16 yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Tip: Washington and Shorts were poor FantasyScore option Monday, and they don't have a great outlook in Week 11 if T.J. Yates makes the start in place of the injured Brian Hoyer.

Texans | Two Houston WRs probable

Sat, 14 Nov 2015 12:33:01 -0800

Houston Texans WRs Nate Washington (hip) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) are listed as probable for Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Washington ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Shorts ($4,200, 8.4%) decrease each other's value, so expectations for both should be lowered. The Bengals have been one of the top fantasy defenses against wide receivers this year, too, but they shouldn't be completely overlooked.

Texans | Cecil Shorts, Nate Washington practice

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 17:29:01 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and WR Nate Washington (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) and Washington ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) appear to be on track to play against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10. Shorts would be playing for the first time in around a month, while Washington has recorded 201 yards and three touchdowns in the last two games. Washington may be the more attractive option for owners, but both players could be cheaper options on FantasyScore.

Texans | Chris Polk, Cecil Shorts full go

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 16:07:15 -0800

Houston Texans RB Chris Polk (knee) and WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is a solid PPR receiver when he's healthy and should be given a good look on FantasyScore in his return to the field. Polk ($3,500, 7.0%) has more value in PPR scoring formats, too, but he's done next to nothing lately and should probably be avoided.

Texans | Cecil Shorts expected back

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 07:02:18 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is expected back in Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals after the bye week.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) doesn't have a lot of upside on FantasyScore yet, but he could be an option when he gets his feet under him.

Fri, 30 Oct 2015 07:39:36 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) was ruled out for Week 8 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Nate Washington ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will likely see a larger role, but he doesn't have much upside on FantasyScore.

Texans | Cecil Shorts sits out of practice

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 13:11:15 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Shorts could very well be inactive for another week as he has yet to practice. If Shorts is sidelined again, Nate Washington ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) should see more targets, and DeAndre Hopkins ($8,500, 17.0%) will certainly his fair share of looks, per usual.

Texans | Cecil Shorts still sidelined

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 16:03:45 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) hasn't played since Oct. 15 and isn't shaping up to be a candidate to return in Week 8 against the Tennessee Titans. Ignore him for at least another week.

FS Quintin Demps (hamstring), LB Jadeveon Clowney (ankle) and OG Brandon Brooks (toe) were limited Friday and are questionable.

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 14:56:41 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: With Shorts out again, DeAndre Hopkins ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) is really the only Houston receiver you should consider on FantasyScore. Hopkins has been a beast for fantasy owners with at least 11 targets and five catches in each game this year.

Texans | Cecil Shorts misses practice

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 14:15:18 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Shorts ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) may be close to unavailable for Week 7. If he is ruled out, Nate Washington ($2,200, 4.4%) could be a decent sleeper pick, assuming he returns to action. Neither holds a candle to DeAndre Hopkins, but Washington might be in sleeper status if Shorts is ruled out.

Texans | Arian Foster, Cecil Shorts probable

Fri, 16 Oct 2015 15:06:00 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) and WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) are both probable for Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Foster practiced in full Friday, Oct. 16, while Shorts was limited.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) is back close to full strength and is a solid choice on FantasyScore this weekend. The Jags allow 31.8 PPR points per week to runners (fifth-most) and Foster will likely have a heavy workload. Shorts ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is one to avoid with his last game coming Oct. 4 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Texans | Cecil Shorts limited

Thu, 15 Oct 2015 13:52:24 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should be able to return this week to play the Jacksonville Jaguars. If teammate Nate Washington is inactive, Shorts will be the Texans' No. 2 wide receiver for Week 6. He wouldn't be a bad sleeper option on FantasyScore in that case.

Texans | Cecil Shorts limited

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 16:46:04 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It is believed that Shorts ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has a very good chance to play in the Week 6 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Shorts has been a solid contributor in the passing game this season but could be a risky starting option because of the injury.

Texans | Cecil Shorts could return soon

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 17:39:58 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) has a better chance than WR Nate Washington (hamstring) to play in the Week 6 game against Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts and Washington missed the Week 5 game because of their injuries but it appears at least one may be able to play against the Jaguars. Owners will need to monitor their practice participation next week to determine their availability for the game.

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 15:10:32 -0700

Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (hamstring) and WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7, and have been ruled out for the Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Kevin Mumphrey ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Jaelen Strong ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will receive bigger roles on offense because of the injuries the team has at the position. They have not seen much playing time this season and should not be fantasy options for owners.

Texans | Keith Mumphery's role expanding

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 06:27:47 -0700

Houston Texans WR Keith Mumphery's role is likely to expand with WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) banged up. Mumphery had four catches for 56 yards in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Mumphery ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) takes on the Indianapolis Colts Thursday night and is a watch list player on FantasyScore for now.

Texans | Cecil Shorts not at practice

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 16:32:01 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Oct. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts has been thrown to nearly 10 times per game so far in 2015. While DeAndre Hopkins is still the No. 1 wide receiver on the Texans, Shorts is playing with consistency that can't be ignored. He's only $2,700 (5.4% of cap) on FantasyScore, and will enable higher-priced studs to be rostered, too.

Texans | Cecil Shorts sits Monday

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 16:45:35 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) did not participate in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts is dealing with a dislocated shoulder, so it does not look like he will be able to play against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Oct. 8. Jaelen Strong could see more playing time but is not a great option.

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 10:56:29 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) is considered doubtful for the Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Oct. 8, because of the dislocated shoulder he suffered in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Owners can monitor the situation during the week, but Shorts likely will be sidelined for at last one week. Jaelen Strong could receive a bigger role because of the injuries the team has at receiver but is not a strong fantasy option.

Texans | Cecil Shorts dazzles

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 06:18:42 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts took a Brian Hoyer pass 58 yards to the end zone Saturday, Aug. 15, against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts and Hoyer played few snaps together Saturday, but they showed some early chemistry. As long as Shorts is able to stay healthy in 2015, he should be the Texans' No. 2 wide receiver, behind DeAndre Hopkins.

Texans | Cecil Shorts to move around on offense

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 13:21:37 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts is expected to line up as an outside receiver as well as a slot receiver this season.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts should see a lot of playing time with the Texans and could be one of the starting wide receivers when the regular season starts. Shorts could be a late-round options in leagues this season since owners will not be able to count on him on a weekly basis.

Free-agent WR Cecil Shorts (Jaguars) agreed to terms with the Houston Texans Monday, March 16. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts is going from one mediocre quarterback to another, no matter who starts for the Texans in 2015. Additionally, Shorts has not yet played a full season in his four-year career. He should be considered no more than a WR3.

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 10:22:43 -0700

Free-agent WR Cecil Shorts (Jaguars) has drawn interest from the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts has been underwhelming his last two seasons and hasn't played a full season in his four-year career. Signing with the Chargers would give him more value than he had last year in Jacksonville, but he should still be considered in WR3 territory.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts looking for contender

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 04:16:02 -0800

Free-agent WR Cecil Shorts (Jaguars) wants to take his talents to a contending team when he hits free agency on Tuesday, March 10.

Fantasy Tip: You can't blame Shorts for feeling frustrated at all the years of losing in Jacksonville. He was hurt part of the season and finished with just 557 yards on 53 catches. As is the case with most free agents, the best way to judge Shorts' future fantasy value will be where he ends up. Right now, Shorts' value is lower but that could change.
