Jags WR Cecil Shorts out Week 1

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Jacksonville Jaguars will open up their 2014 season against the Eagles minus a wide receiver.

Cecil Shorts was ruled out Saturday with a hamstring issue shortly before the team left for Philadelphia. The wideout left practice Thursday with tightness in the area and was limited in practice Friday.

Shorts also missed part of training camp with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact: 

Allen Robinson will now see increased time as a result with Marquis Lee starting on the opposite side. Allen Hurns could also contribute. Although risky, Lee would have the most potential of the three in a game the Jags are expected to trail in. We rank Lee 49th, so we see him safer in deeper leagues.
