Cecil Shorts injury update: Concussion limits fantasy value in Week 14

Mike Ehrmann

Jacksonville Jaguars wide out Cecil Shorts was held out on Thursday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars wide out Cecil Shorts did not practice on Thursday, via Ryan O'Halloran. The Jags' pass-catcher was held out again due to a concussion and does not appear to be ready for action.

In Week 14, the Jaguars will take on the New York Jets, but should be without their top wideout, Shorts. With a measly 2-10 record, the Jags are in no hurry to get the talented Shorts back into the lineup.

Fantasy Analysis: Cecil Shorts emerged as the guy in Jacksonville, despite the team spending a first round draft choice on the high profile Justin Blackmon.

And with Chad Henne revitalizing the offense, Shorts' value was on the rise. Unfortunately, Shorts may be unavailable this Sunday and perhaps the rest of the fantasy season. Unless he is a surprise activation on Sunday, look out for other W/R options.
