The time Jaguars receiver Allen Hurns and quarterback Blake Bortles put in during the offseason is showing up in camp. Hurns made two difficult catches on passes thrown into tight coverage from Bortles.
"He's awesome, he was our Mr. Reliable last year," Bortles said. "Obviously, the time we got to spend together in the offseason out in California and then here all of July, it's been really good. That's something that's continuing to grow and he's only getting better."
Hurns said he knows Bortles will throw him the ball even if he's covered.
"You can see the chemistry," Hurns said. "If we have a tight window, he's having that trust in me that I'm going to make the play. I have trust in him that he'll throw me a good ball."
Hurns reportedly has a lead on Marqise Lee to be the team's WR2 heading into camp. He led the team in receiving yards (677) and touchdowns (6) as an undrafted rookie. If he plays starter's snaps he's likely to be fantasy relevant this season. He's particularly useful in best ball formats where owners can be sure that his big games will be counted.
