Cecil Shorts caught 3-of-4 targets for 18 yards and a touchdown. He also had 3 carries for 20 yards in the Texans Week 12 win over the Saints.

Fantasy Impact: The Texans appear to be trying to do anything possible to get Shorts involved. His touchdown "catch" came on a shovel pass that was more like a run. He is a high risk, low ceiling WR4 against the Bills in Week 13.

This is a player that has been under the radar all season. Does anyone remember a couple years ago when Shorts broke out for the Jacksonville Jaguars? He put up 55 catches, 979 yards and 7 TDs in 14 games. That is almost 18 yards per catch. Since then, he has become more of a... Read More

Another week in and I hope everyone is doing better than me in their fantasy leagues this season.
