Shorts is going to play. He had a good week of practice despite the limited distinctions for a couple days. The wideout had a rough opening week, catching just three balls for 40 yards. The good news, though, is that he was targeted 11 times.
Fantasy impact: Things are looking up for Shorts. Chad Henne is going to start with Gabbert dealing with a thumb injury and Shorts' numbers are very likely to improve. Justin Blackmon is still suspended for three more games and Ace Sanders still has some work to do as the Jaguars' second receiver. Shorts should be considers as a strong WR2 with a high ceiling since he could see 12-plus targets.
