Cecil Shorts, WR, Texans
2014 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Jul-26-2014 by Daniel Kalles
INJURY RISK: After a very quiet rookie season, Cecil Shorts had a breakout season in his second year, becoming the big-play receiver that the Jags were looking for. In only 14 games, he averaged 17.8 yards per reception on 979 yards, while scoring seven touchdowns; Based on those numbers, there were high expectations going into 2013. While he did catch 11 more passes despite playing in one fewer game, his yards and touchdowns dropped big time as he only averaged 11.8 yards per reception. Shorts is the unquestioned No, 1 receiver and should be drafted as a No. 3 fantasy receiver or flex option. Based on his numbers from last season and the plan to line him up more often in the slot, it likely means he should get a healthy dose of receptions. His value will be higher in PPR leagues. His overall position rank will be somewhere between 35 to 40.
Editor's note: Dynasty owners should be dumping Shorts as soon as possible. Even if you don't like Lee or Robinson, the Jags appear ready and willing to tear it all down.
