Jags activate WR Ace Sanders

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The Jacksonville Jaguars have activated receiver Ace Sanders to the 53-man roster and waived tight end Mickey Shuler.

The move had been expected and means Sanders will play Sunday against Pittsburgh. The fourth-year pro from South Carolina was suspended the first four games for games for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

Sanders caught 51 passes for 484 yards and a touchdown last season, becoming one of 42 rookies over the last 20 years to catch at least 50 passes in their initial season.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Jaguars need him to play against the Steelers because veteran Cecil Shorts III and rookie Marqise Lee are sidelined with nagging hamstring injuries. Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns are probably safer fantasy options, but Sanders will at least be another target for rookie QB Blake Bortles. When Shorts and Lee return, it's going to be a crowded position for the Jags and fantasy owners will need to let things shake out.
