Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts exploded versus the Green Bay Packers in Week 8. The Jags' No. 2 receiver had a big day, leading his team in receiving. While Justin Blackmon was limited, Shorts received plenty of looks. He finished the day with a team-high eight receptions for 116 yards.
Although he failed to find the end zone, this was a significant day for the otherwise no-name wide out. Shorts has had a couple of nice performances this season, stepping up in the absence of Laurent Robinson.
Fantasy Analysis: Cecil Shorts might actually be becoming a fantasy option, as a low-end flex-option and bye-week filler. Considering the team's offensive situation with Laurent Robinson and Maurice Jones-Drew out, and Blackmon hogging all of the attention, Shorts finds himself in an incredibly advantageous position.
Shorts could reap the benefits of the team's current predicament. He brings a lot of explosion and is capable of the big days, but consistency is certainly an issue, especially when your QB is Blaine Gabbert.
