Cecil Shorts is becoming a reliable fantasy starter

Scott Cunningham

Cecil Shorts finished with another huge day in Week 12. We break down the fantasy implications.

Blaine Gabbert, Chad Henne, it doesn't matter who's throwing the ball to Cecil Shorts in Jacksonville. He caught four passes for 105 yards and another touchdown in Week 12, marking his third game in a row with a score.

Shorts averaged 26.3 yards per catch and saw a team-high seven targets throughout the afternoon. finishing second in receptions only to rookie wideout Justin Blackmon.

Fantasy Impact: The debate over Shorts being a viable fantasy starter doesn't need any discussion now. He's been on a tear in recent weeks, and should only see a further increase in value with Henne starting under center.

Shorts now has six touchdowns on the season. He looks like a WR2 heading into his next matchup with the Bills.
