Shorts Done For Season

Pyro's take: Cecil Shorts blew out just about every ligament in his knee. Terrible injury, don't want to speculate on a time table.

Fantasy Goo: Shorts didn't have a huge fantasy impact on the season, more targets fro Evans, Brate and Humphries.

Cecil Shorts Agrees To A Pay Cut To Remain A Texan

The Houston Texans

Pyro's take: The Houston Texans and WR Cecil Shorts have agreed to terms on a contract restructure that will likely secure his roster spot on the team for the 2016 season. Shorts was originally set to earn $2.75 million this year which was chopped down to a $1.2 million base salary to go along with a $500K roster bonus. The veteran receiver could have been in danger of being released if he did not agree to the new deal as Houston selected Will Fuller and Braxton Miller in the 2016 NFL Draft back in April.

Fantasy Goo: Cecil Shorts appeared in 11 games in 2015 with the Texans and caught 42 passes for 484 yards and two touchdowns. Shorts is currently expected to enter the 2016 season as the No. 3 wide receiver for the Texans, but that could change if any of the younger players on the roster outplays him in training camp and the preseason. Shorts should not be on the fantasy radar until a more distinguished role is known for the five-year veteran.

Strong Impresses at OTAs


Pyro's take: After coming into camp last year overweight, Jaelen Strong has a lot to prove. Last year he reported to camp weighing 231. He is listed at 217, but played closer to 200 towards the end of the year. O'Brien called him out but has been impressed so far this season with Strong's effort and conditioning. The second year WR certainly hopes so as his marijuana charge is a strike against him, and now he is in a camp battle with the likes of Cecil Shorts and more notabley, the rookie Will Fuller.

Personaly, my money is on Fuller and this team is going to run with newly acquired Lamar Miller. I am not going to draft a Texan WR beyond Nuke. They want a guy to stretch the field for Hopkins. So they pick up Brock? There were 30 other QBs that had more 20 yard pass plays last season - just saying!

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is listed as probable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Chiefs.


Pyro's take: Shorts has been practicing of late, He will try to improve on his four receptions for 57-yards against the Chiefs in week 1.

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 17.


Pyro's take: Tania Ganguli via Twitter "O'Brien says Cecil Shorts won't be ready for Sunday's game. #Texans"

Fantastic Matchup in Week 12


Pyro's take: Washington will draw Brandon Browner. according to PFF, he is rated as the WORST CB in coverage.Their slot corner, Kyle Wilson is a good cover guy and will be on Shorts. I think Hoyer will look to exploit the Browner/Washington matchup.

Cecil Shorts caught 3-of-7 targets for 16 yards


Pyro's take: He hasnt seen the field since week 6, and it showed. He is of some value in deep PPR leagues but thats about it.

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) returned to practice


Pyro's take: Deepi Sidhu via Twitter has stated that "Cecil Shorts III returned to practice today. Griffin was on short-term IR with knee sprain."

As long as Cecil Shorts can remain healthy he will get plenty of looks going his direction. He is a solid flex Wr3 play in PPR leagues.

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) has been ruled out


Pyro's take: According to television reporter Drew Doughty, Cecil Shorts will be out for Sunday's game.

Nate Washington should continue to receive the targets Shorts would have gotten, and this moves him into flex territory.

Cecil Shorts (shoulder) out for TNF game against Indianapolis Colts


Pyro's take: Cecil Shorts (shoulder) will miss this game, and its going to hurt especially without Nate Washington as well. Shorts has been their PPR specialtist, but because of a short week the Texans did not want to take a chance. He should be ready to roll next week because of the longer rest period.

Shorts to Miss a Few Weeks

Cecil Shorts, the team's No. 1 pass-catcher, will miss multiple weeks of camp, coach Gus Bradley said Saturday, per the team's official website. Shorts missed time in OTAs with a calf injury and pulled a hamstring on Friday.

Bradley wasn't worried about Shorts' readiness for the season, but it's a discouraging start to camp. The injury helps to highlight the lack of experience at the position for the Jaguars.

Pyro's take: Shorts is just another injury to the Jaguars pass catchers that is already missing Ace Sanders and Justin Blackmon to suspensions. Rookie Wide Receiver Marquise Lee also missed all of OTA's with an ankle injury. Cecil should retain his spot as the number one receiver in the pecking order as he has the longest history with Chad Henne, but this injury gives rookies Marquise Lee and Allen Robinson a chance to develop chemistry with Henne working with the first team.

While the injury may seem insignificant now, just remember that hamstring injuries tend to linger, just ask Miles Austin. I just moved Marquise Lee ahead of Cecil on my tiers as someone will have to catch passes in Jacksonville, and coaches have been talking about moving the rookie around the formation and letting him work out of the slot. Shorts and Lee could be in a dogfight for the top receiver on the Jaguars come season end but my money is on the Biletnikoff Award winner.

Shorts is the #1 receiver...again

Cecil Shorts III began the season as the Jaguars’ No. 1 receiver, and though he’s back in that role in the wake of last week’s indefinite suspension of Justin Blackmon, Shorts said he’s trying not to overemphasize the change. “I’ll take the same approach,” Shorts said. “Nothing changes.” Shorts said his on-field role stays the same, and he’ll run the same routes in the same plays as before. He said if he’s focused on anything it’s trying not to press too much because he’s the “go-to receiver,” something he said he perhaps did the first four games of the season. “I’m not going to press,” he said. “At the beginning of the year, I was pressing a little bit. I have a certain routine in the week, preparing. I’m going to keep it that way.” Shorts had 26 receptions for 337 yards in the first four games without Blackmon, but also had four dropped passes. He has 46 receptions for 565 yards and a touchdown this season.

Pyro's take: Shorts will once again be the main receiver in Jacksonville, now that Justin Blackmon has been suspended for the rest of the season. Mike Brown will fill the role left by Blackmon, but Shorts should be the receiver that sees the most targets going forward.

Shorts and the Jags will match-up against the Titans this week, which is not the best news for Cecil. The Titans have given up the fewest points per game to wide receivers at 14.3. He will be targeted, but don't expect a huge game this week.

Cecil Shorts hopeful to play

Cecil Shorts says he is hopeful he will play Sunday. Says injured area is stable but he is in a lot of pain. #jaguars

Pyro's take: Shorts looks like he will be a game time decision, and for me that means I am looking for a better option if I have one. The fact that he is still in a lot of pain is not reassuring, and if he does play it could be the same scenario as last week, with an early exit.

Cecil Shorts expected to play Sunday

Jaguars leading wide receiver Cecil Shorts is expected to play Sunday against St. Louis despite a groin injury and questionable status, the Florida Times-Union is reporting.

Pyro's take: This is good news for Shorts owners, as he has been the one bright spot for the Jaguars this season, but keep in mind this is the week Justin Blackmon returns. If the groin injury starts acting up, Shorts could end up pulling a Roddy White decoy and set up Blackmon all day long.

Don't get caught with your Cecil Shorts down

Cecil Shorts was a huge pickup for a lot of fantasy owners last year, putting up big points on a number of Sundays in 2012. But, he needs to prove he's not a flash in the pan, and is a top flight receiver. Had he not had a couple of concussions last year, he would have eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark. It'll be interesting to see if he can achieve that century mark this season with Henne or Gabbert.

Pyro's take: Cecil had either a TD or a 100-yards in every away game he played in last year! If he can keep that road domination up, he's going to be a nice treat again this season. With Justin Blackman out the first 4 games with a suspension, Shorts III will get a ton of targets and have every opportunity to score a lot of fantasy points for owners.

My issue is I'm not sure whether having Blackman in or out of the line-up helps the 3rd year wideout from Mount Union College, (huh? - he's gotta be the only NFL player ever from that school) is better for #84 or not. Some people, are really high on this little fella', I'm a little more lukewarm due to the fact he's on the Jaguars.
