Allen Hurns secured 5-of-6 targets for 68 yards in the Jaguars' Week 4 loss to the Chargers.
Undrafted rookie Hurns got wide open against the Chargers' secondary for a first-half gain of 44 yards. There was nobody even in his area, but Hurns fell down and could not quite crawl into the end zone. So Toby Gerhart executed the goal-line score a few plays later. Due to Marqise Lee and Cecil Shorts' hamstring injuries, the arrow is pointing up on Hurns' playing time and usage. Through four games, he's on pace for 48 catches, 1,016 yards, and 12 touchdowns. There's an obvious regression alert on his yardage and scores. Hurns will be a dicey WR3 when the Jaguars take on the Steelers' weak defense in Week 5. Sep 28 - 7:30 PM

Date:

Allen Hurns (ankle) is probable for Week 4.

Hurns practiced in full the last two days. He'll play the slot with Allen Robinson and Cecil Shorts in three-wide sets.
Sep 26 - 7:08 PM

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

According to Jaguars.com, "all indications" are that Hurns will suit up against the Chargers after avoiding setbacks in Week 3. With Cecil Shorts back and Allen Robinson coming on, Hurns is a low-end WR4.
Sep 25 - 5:29 PM

Allen Hurns (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Hurns didn't suffer any setbacks with his ankle injury, so the Jaguars are managing his reps. He played 51-of-60 snaps as the primary slot receiver last week, with Allen Robinson and Cecil Shorts starting in two-wide sets.
Sep 24 - 7:06 PM

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns caught a 63-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Colts.

He was targeted three times, turning his only catch into the score. Hurns played behind Cecil Shorts and Allen Robinson, and could also lose playing time to Marqise Lee when Lee returns from his hamstring injury.
Sep 21 - 4:42 PM

Allen Hurns (ankle) is probable for Week 3 against the Colts.

Hurns was upgraded to full participation at Friday's practice after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. He'll likely draw the start opposite Cecil Shorts (hamstring), who is also probable and likely to make his season debut. Hurns has a good chemistry with Chad Henne, but he's nothing more than a WR4/5.
Sep 19 - 12:50 PM

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) remained sidelined Thursday.

Speaking after practice, coach Gus Bradley said Hurns "needs to progress Friday to play Sunday." We wouldn't hold our breath. Owners need to be making other plans for their WR4.
Sep 18 - 3:42 PM

Allen Hurns (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Hurns remains day-to-day after spraining his ankle in the final minutes of last week's blowout loss to the Redskins. The Jaguars' receiver depth chart is ever-changing. Hurns knows the offense like the back of his hand, but is the least talented of the rookies, while Cecil Shorts (hamstring) aims to get healthy.
Sep 17 - 1:02 PM

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) is listed as day to day.

With the Jags down 41-10 and 21 seconds left Sunday, Chad Henne hit Hurns on a short crossing pattern. He ended up spraining his ankle on the tackle. Hurns' already fluttering stock will take another hit if Cecil Shorts (hamstring) can get back this week.
Sep 15 - 1:07 PM

Allen Hurns left the stadium on crutches after sustaining an ankle injury in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Washington.

It was a rough day for Hurns. Early on, he roasted DeAngelo Hall but dropped a bomb while 10 yards clear of the defense. And then with 21 seconds left and the Jags down 41-10, he ran a crossing pattern and twisted his ankle awkwardly as he went down. It looks like Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee will be the Jags' top-two receivers if Cecil Shorts (hamstring) can't get back for Week 3.
Sep 14 - 5:28 PM

Coach Gus Bradley said that Allen Hurns will be the Jaguars' No. 2 receiver even when Cecil Shorts (hamstring) returns.

It's the first we've heard of Hurns being ahead of Marqise Lee on the depth chart. Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco says it's because Hurns has a better grasp of the offense after playing for OC Jedd Fisch at the University of Miami. If true, it would make the UDFA a far more intriguing hold than previously thought. For now, however, it doesn't really matter as Shorts does not appear close to getting over his latest injury. Hurns is going to start opposite Lee against the bad Redskins secondary on Sunday and has WR4 appeal.

Allen Hurns caught four passes for 110 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Eagles.

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) was sidelined, leaving Hurns to start opposite Marqise Lee. The intriguing undrafted rookie out of Miami immediately made his presence felt, roasting Cary Williams for two touchdowns in the first quarter. It didn't feel fluky, as Hurns dominated the preseason with 14-232-1 on 136 snaps. He's not going to keep the starting job ahead of Shorts, but could certainly put pressure on Lee for snaps in two-wide sets. This entire Jags receiving corps will get a boost if/when Blake Bortles takes over, making Hurns worth a deep-league add. Just don't go nuts and expect WR3 production weekly.
Sep 7 - 4:35 PM

Allen Hurns is listed as the starter in place of Cecil Shorts (hamstring) for Sunday's Week 1 game against the Eagles.

Mike Brown was projected as the starter initially, but Hurns makes far more sense. The UDFA was a revelation in the preseason, and clearly beat out Brown. Look for Marqise Lee to pace the Jags in targets against the Eagles' exploitable secondary, with Brown and Allen Robinson mixing in for 3-and 4-wide sets. The Jags' inactives: WR Cecil Shorts III, RB Storm Johnson (ankle), OT Austin Pasztor (hand), TE Clay Harbor (calf), G Tyler Shatley, DE Chris Smith and OT Josh Wells.
Sep 7 - 11:49 AM

Jaguars UDFA Allen Hurns is expected to open the season as the team's No. 3 receiver, behind Cecil Shorts and Marqise Lee.

Shorts is the X and Lee the Z receiver in two-wide sets. In the three-wides, we suspect Lee will move inside to the slot, with Shorts and Hurns on the outside. Hurns beat out Mike Brown for the No. 3 role, although he will soon be pushed by recovering second-rounder Allen Robinson (hamstring). Despite Hurns' big August, Robinson is by far the superior stash in Dynasty leagues.

Sep 1 - 3:58 PM

UDFA Allen Hurns had seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' third preseason game Friday night.

Hurns saw regular snaps with the first team, playing opposite Marqise Lee in two-wide sets. He played in OC Jedd Fisch’s system at Miami and has shown good chemistry with Chad Henne and Blake Bortles. Hurns' touchdown came against second-stringers on an 11-yard pass from Bortles in the third quarter. He's now up to 13 receptions for 230 yards and a touchdown through three preseason games. Hurns is a candidate to start Week 1 over Lee or Cecil Shorts. He's worth a look as a late-round flier.
