Fantasy Impact: Shorts has some very tasty matchups going forward, starting with a favorable matchup in Week 13 vs. the NYG porous defense. Once the playoffs begin, he faces three teams with bad secondaries (Wk 14 vs HOU, Wk 15 @BAL, Wk 16 vs TEN). With the Texans and Ravens particularly generous in giving up fantasy points to WRs, and Allen Robinson's absence creating more opportunities for targets, consider Shorts as a solid WR3/FLEX play going forward. Shorts has more value in PPR formats, as he tends to catch a heavy volume of passes, but often has trouble finding the endzone.
