Bold Prediction #8 – Cecil Shorts will be a borderline WR1 in 2013

You know what’s crazy? You know what drives me up the freaking wall? People who 1. Don’t know who Cecil Shorts is and 2. Think he’s a WR3. It’s just plain crazy talk. If you don’t know who Cecil Shorts is, quit your 8 team redraft league and hand over your fantasy football ownership card. Do they actually make those? If not, that would be awesome! I want to be a card carrying member! It’ll be like Willy Wonka and his golden ticket! Focus! Focus!

In all seriousness. Cecil Shorts simply does not get the respect he deserves. His ADP is right around the 28th WR off the board. ESPN live drafts have him going 31st. ESPN’s “Football Scientist”, aka some intern with a mathematics degree but has no idea what an audible is, gives Cecil Shorts a bit more respect as the 23rd best WR. Still, far too low. Even Rotoworld ranks him as their 22 best receiver. Not right.

Shorts had four games over 100 yards receiving and tallied 7 TDs. This made him the 22nd best WR. Let’s not forget he started only 9 games and played in only 14. There is room for improvement!

Now, there is no doubt that Blackman’s suspension hurts Cecil Shorts. Why? Because I dare you to name the Jags 3rd WR if you’re not from Jacksonville. Of course the other limiting factor is Blain Gabbert. Hopefully Blain is any degree better than terrible. For you dynasty leaguers, I’m buying Cecil Shorts and praying the Jags get a real QB in 2014.

I’m drafting Shorts ahead of guys like Mike Wallace, Danny Amendola, Wes Welker, Nelson, Decker, and Nicks.
