Touchdowns not what Allen Robinson does best
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson scored his first career touchdown Week 7 against Cleveland, connecting with fellow rookie Blake Bortles on a 31-yard catch-and-run late in the second quarter.

Describing the play as "catch-and-run," though, makes it sound like the run aspect was by design, which simply isn't true. Robinson caught the pass with his back to the defense for what looked like a simple 10-yard gain. But he shook off one defender, kept his balance and managed to elude three other defenders on his way to the end zone.

It was a special play by a player not often put in a position to make special plays. The Jaguars have used Robinson more as a possession guy, targeting him on plays designed to gain only 10 yards or so. And he's done fine in the role. His four catches in this game were actually his fewest in the last five.

There's something to be said for a player who catches five balls every week, even if he doesn't have many big plays or touchdowns to show for it. Certainly, in points-per-reception leagues, Robinson has some appeal. Owners in standard leagues might need to see a couple more touchdowns from him before taking the plunge, though.

Matchup holds Cecil Shorts in check
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After struggling much of the season, Browns cornerback Joe Haden was back in shutdown form Week 7 at Jacksonville, preventing Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts from following up his 10-catch, 103-yard effort from the week before. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Haden shadowed Shorts much of the day and was physical with him at the line of scrimmage.

That didn't stop rookie quarterback Blake Bortles from throwing the ball Shorts' way, but the two connected on only three of nine targets for 12 yards.

The Jaguars offense being what it is, you can't expect Shorts to be consistent in Fantasy, but if you were excited about him just a week ago, you shouldn't be so quick to dump him based on this performance. It's clear Bortles wanted to get him the ball. The matchup just prevented him from doing so.
