Summary

Cecil Shorts signed with the Texans in the offseason and likely will play out of the slot, with DeAndre Hopkins and rookie receiver Jaelen Strong as the two main wide outs. Shorts has had to deal with concussions in the past, as well as a shoulder injury, so there is some risk with him. He is a capable receiver with the potential to be a consistent option in the passing game, but there's little doubt that the leading receiver will be third year pro, DeAndre Hopkins. Shorts was a highly targeted receiver with Jacksonville and his experience will make it easier for the passing game to thrive. As a fantasy option, Shorts has the potential to have some success week to week, but the development of the quarterback position will dictate how beneficial he can be. (May 15)
