Cecil Shorts injury update: Fantasy value improves with probable status

Al Messerschmidt

Cecil Shorts is set to return from his concussion, making him a solid fantasy play during the playoffs.

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Shorts suffered a concussion in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills. He missed last week's game against the New York Jets but was cleared to return to action this week. He was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday and practiced in full on Friday. He is expected to play on Sunday,

Fantasy Impact: Shorts has become a consistent fantasy producer despite Jacksonville's offensive woes this season. He's approaching 1,000 yards on the season and now has a chance to reach that milestone given his improved health.

After taking on the Dolphins, the Jaguars play against the Patriots, so Shorts has a reasonable chance to produce over the final weeks of the fantasy season.
