As he heads into the final season of his rookie contract, the 2011 fourth-round pick is looking to have a bounce back season. Even though the Jaguars drafted Blake Bortles with the third-overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, they are wanting quarterback Chad Henne to start all 16 games. Shorts actually has his best games when Henne is throwing him the passes. He broke out in 2012 producing 55 receptions, 44 from Henne in 9 starts (all Henne starts). He finished 2012 with 979 yards and 7 touchdowns including 4 touchdowns in the last 6 games. With Justin Blackmon suspended indefinitely for multiple violations of the league’s substance abuse policy, Shorts becomes Henne’s top target.
Signed a 3-year $11 million dollar contract with the Ravens. He's the kind of chain mover the Ravens sorely lacked after trading away Anquan Boldin. Smith may only catch 50-60 passes in 2014, but along with a healthy Dennis Pitta, will take pressure off of Joe Flacco. Smith's fantasy value is on the wane, but he'll be in the WR3/4 conversation
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
His injury tendencies are scary, but his ability isn't. He is a high upside receiver as the only tested wide receiver on the Jaguars and Chad Henne has no qualms about testing the secondary deep.
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Henne loves to throw to Shorts and Shorts is a solid WR selection for 2014.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Shorts suffered a Grade 2 Hamstring injury which will sideline him “multiple weeks” with the potential of missing Pre-Season Games. Shorts has fell victim to numerous injuries in Jacksonville as he sat out most of the offseason with calf and hamstring issues while also undergoing groin surgery in December. Entering the final year of his rookie contract, a fully healthy Shorts could be a steal in late rounds of Fantasy Drafts, especially with Justin Blackmon gone. Keep note on his health, as this plays a major factor for the only proven receiver in Jacksonville.
Would ya look at that – another fight for Steve Smith as he and Ravens CB Chykie Brown were performing blocking drills that eventually led to swinging fist drills during an Early August practice. Smith was also involved in a June practice fight with Ravens CB Ladarius Webb. Smith is coming off a 735 receiving yard performance where he managed to catch just 3 TDs. With diminished vertical play and burst, the Vet is slated to line up as the WR2 (while being the Number 3 Receiving Option) behind Torrey Smith and Dennis Pitta. Smith is on the latter part of his career at the age of 35 and is only considered a desperate Bye Week replacement.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Productive when healthy, but he's often dinged.
Feisty veteran is running out of gas.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
No Blackmon means #1 role to start, giving him solid WR2 potential.
He can still make things happen down the field but he's the #2 guy at best and working in a run first system now.
  
Sablich Brothers
The New York Times
Henne and Shorts had a solid garbage time connection in 2013, does that excite you?.
Enters a supporting role in Gary Kubiak's run-first scheme.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Solid flex2 option but Robinson will take job on the outside relegating Shorts to slot role which he is more suited for
May not be an ideal number one wideout anymore but see resurgence as a number two in single coverage
