Recommendation: We've been hearing since Week 1 that the coaching staff plans to involve Shorts more in the offense, though it had yet to translate into more snaps in game situations. That could change with Robinson expected to miss more time and Mike Thomas' poor showing thus far. Shorts has shown good chemistry with Blaine Gabbert and has been the team's most explosive receiving playmaker this season, catching two last-minute touchdowns over a three-week span, and hauling in an impressive one-handed 34-yard grab against Chicago. Shorts and Justin Blackmon will likely be the team's top receiving targets heading into Week 7.
