Scouting report

DAL WR Allen Hurns - 2018 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Allen Hurns has had some success in the NFL and now will be given a chance to be the No. 1 receiver for QB Dak Prescott. Hurns caught 64 passes back in 2015 for over 1,000 receiving yards. He is very versatile as he can line up outside and in the slot. Expect Hurns to be targeted six to eight times a game which will produce some decent numbers.

Fantasy Downside

Injuries have been the theme for Hurns over the past two seasons. He missed 11 games and had trouble being effective with nagging issues. His numbers and fantasy impact were limited because of that and Jacksonville decided he was unreliable.

2018 Bottom Line

Hurns has an ADP of 125 but his value is higher. He ranks as our No. 41 wide receiver. Someone has to catch the ball in Dallas. If Hurns is healthy, his ceiling is high. Take him a couple of rounds earlier than his ADP suggests and you might find yourself with a steal. The worse case scenario is that he's a WR3.

JAX WR Allen Hurns - Week 18 Fantasy Football Outlook

Wild Card Round vs. Buffalo Bills

Allen Hurns returned last week from a six-week layoff to catch 3 passes for 38 yards. That was a good sign. Is he ready to return to a more prominent role? Perhaps. But the Jaguars don't figure to be throwing the ball a lot in this game against Buffalo's soft run defense. But getting Hurns back into the passing game will be a must. There just might not be a lot of opportunities for him, however.

JAX WR Allen Hurns - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

After topping 100 yards before the bye three weeks ago, it looked like Hurns might be prepared to break out. Alas, he reverted to form, catching 3 passes for 31 yards last week. He's more of a flex play than anything in an offense that looks to run first and ask questions later.

JAX WR Allen Hurns - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Allen Hurns had 5 receptions for a season-high 101 yards two weeks ago against the Colts. But that was against the Colts. The Bengals' defense will offer much more resistance. Hurns is still the better deep target than Marqise Lee. And he's also more likely to score. But given Jacksonville's desire to run the ball and the matchup, Hurns isn't worth using as anything more than a WR3.

JAX WR Allen Hurns - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Indianapolis Colts

Allen Hurns had just 3 catches for 42 yards and now has been held to under 4 receptions in 4-of-6 games this season. But he remains more of a TD threat than teammate Marqise Lee. Indianapolis has allowed 4 touchdowns to receivers this season, so there's a chance Hurns gets into the end zone. Lee also has been missing from practice this week with a knee injury. Use Hurns as a low-end WR3 or high-end flex option.

JAX WR Allen Hurns - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. L.A. Rams

Allen Hurns had just 2 catches for 21 yards last week and failed to score. He now has 6 catches in the past two weeks and hasn't scored. His production is almost entirely dependent on scoring and that makes him pretty dicey each week. The Rams have given up just 3 touchdowns to WRs this season. Hurns likely isn't worth using as anything more than a flex play.

JAX WR Allen Hurns - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Pittsburgh Steelers

Hurns got 10 targets last week but caught just 4 passes for 42 yards and failed to score for the first time in three weeks. Pittsburgh's pass defense has been a tough nut to crack thus far and hasn't given up more than 119 yards to an opposing team's receivers yet this season. Hurns should see enough volume to be used as a WR3, but he probably doesn't have a very high ceiling this week.
