Fantasy Impact: Even in a limited role, its a good sign that Shorts is able to get on the field tonight to work off some rust and build some chemistry with Chad Henne & Blake Bortles. With the injury that has kept him out of action and the uncertainty of the QB position for the Jaguars, Shorts ADP has fallen to the later rounds of drafts. The 26 year old receiver is entering a contract year and is clearly the No. 1 wide receiver in Jacksonville so I would target him in the 10th or 11th round as a great value pick.

Fantasy Impact: Cecil Shorts returning to practice is a welcome sign for Jaguars fans and fantasy owners alike. Shorts' hamstring injury has bogged down his ADP and he's currently going in the 11th round. His ADP should rise once he becomes a regular participant in practice and the news surrounding him stays positive. He could be a really nice value given his cheap cost; Shorts is ranked as FantasyPros consensus WR39.

Fantasy Impact: This shouldn't come as much of a surprise to Jags fans or Cecil Shorts owners. The team has made it very clear that they wanted to take it slow with Cecil's return. They need him to be 100% healthy for the season. There is still no timetable for his return.

Cecil Shorts -- the only proven receiver on the roster -- is going to be out for at least two weeks with a grade two right hamstring strain. It’s the latest in a string of injuries that have cost the fourth-year player 11 games in his first three seasons. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Second-round picks Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson are already working with the first unit at training camp and both have a great opportunity to start on opening day. With Shorts' injury history, either Lee or Robinson could quickly become Bortles go-to receiver.
