If you’re not a fantasy football player, you probably don’t realize just how good Cecil Shorts is. The second year wide receiver finished the season with 55 catches for 979 yards and seven TDs in just 14 games. Imagine if he actually had a professional quarterback throwing him the ball. From NFL.com:
Wide receiver Cecil Shorts III was placed IR after suffering his second concussion of the month in Sunday’s 23-16 loss to the New England Patriots. Shorts burst onto the scene in his second season out of Division III Mount Union, falling just short of the 1,000-yard plateau, leading the team with 979 receiving yards on 55 receptions. He started nine games this season, scored seven touchdowns and averaged 17.8 yards per reception. The former Purple Raider brought dynamic big-play ability to Jacksonville along with a penchant for taking the top off defenses. He had become the perfect complement to rookie Justin Blackmon’s size.
