Mere days after Hurns was released by the Dallas Cowboys, Hurns was quickly found a new home in Miami. Assuming he is recovered from the ugly injury he suffered in the playoffs, which it sounds like he has, Hurns will join a group of receivers that includes DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson, Kenny Stills, Jakeem Grant and Brice Butler. None are highly touted at the moment, with Wilson being the highest ranked at No. 58. So there may be room for Hurns to get work on the field. Keep an eye on Hurns’ health and ability on the field during camp, as well as his connections with whichever quarterback emerges between Josh Rosen and Ryan Fitzpatrick.
DAL WR Allen Hurns - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 1 at Carolina Panthers
The Cowboys receiving unit has a ton of question marks, but someone will benefit from the passing game and Allen Hurns is the best guess of the one who ends up being the No. 1 receiver. We use that term lightly as there really is no No. 1, but the veteran has shown signs in his career when healthy of carrying that load.
The matchup is pretty good for Week 1 as the Panthers pass defense struggled last season. But even with the favorable matchup, we don't expect much from Hurns or any other Cowboys receiver. Keep Hurns on the bench for Week 1.
