Laurent who? Jaguars will keep WR Cecil Shorts in starting lineup

In spite of Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Laurent Robinson @LaurentRobinson's healthy return, the team has opted to keep WR Cecil Shorts @CecilShortsIII as their primary "X" receiver. Shorts caught eight passes for 116 yards on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Robinson hasn't seen the field since Week 4 and had been dealing with multiple concussions up until now. Robinson will play behind Shorts and rookie Justin Blackmon @JustBlack81 as the Jags' No. 3 receiver.

Fantasy Analysis:

Robinson will have to earn his spot back and there's no harm in that. Jacksonville needs guys to exceed expectations and Shorts definitely stepped up most recently. In deeper formats, consider adding Shorts for added depth on your bench if you need an extra receiver. Players tend to emerge in the second half of the season and he might catch fire over these next few weeks if there's legitimate chemistry between he and Blaine Gabbert @BlaineGabbert. Problem is, relying on Gabbert to get him the ball is the biggest question mark.
