2015 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


Shorts has been on a negative decline over the past two years due to his struggles with injuries. Cecil battled a hamstring issue and a shoulder injury in 2014, which were preceded by a couple of concussions in 2013. He has missed at least two games in each of his first four seasons. He has offered some big-play ability throughout his career while catching barely 50 percent of his targets. Last year, he hauled in only 53 of 110 targets (48.2 percent) and posted a career-low 10.5 yards per catch. He produced two 100-yard performances and saw at least 10 targets in five contests. Cecil has scored just four times over the past two seasons. In a way, he'll assume the Hopkins role in the Texans' offense as DeAndre becomes their No. 1 WR. He's a WR4 for 2015 with some upside if he can improve his YPC average and touchdown production. Shorts is a boom-or-bust player, but one who should see more opportunity this year if he stays healthy. I see 65 catches for 800 yards with a maximum of five TDs.

9.09 #5 World Ranked - I thought about TE here, but I think there is great depth there. I'll add another solid WR that fell further I thought he would.
