Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
Since Brian Hoyer is back under center, don't expect Shorts to toss more touchdown passes on gimmick plays or run some Wildcat like he did last week. Since the 10th-year pro will continue to split targets with Nate Washington, consider Shorts a No. 4 fantasy wideout with upside versus a New Orleans Saints defense that has coughed up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing wideouts since Week 8.
Rushing: 2 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 42 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Injuries and poor quarterback play in Jacksonville conspired to keep Shorts from reaching his potential. And there's no guarantee that things are going to be any better in Houston. The drafting of Jaelen Strong will push Shorts, but if healthy, Shorts should be able to beat out the rookie for the right to start opposite Hopkins. Shorts is capable of playing both outside and in the slot and should he be able to generate enough playing time to be worth taking a gamble on late in your draft.

Rushing: 9 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 21 Receptions, 233 Yards, 0 TD.
