It has been an up-and-down season thus far for Allen Hurns. The third-year wide receiver has struggled just to put up numbers that make him worth rostering in every league.
Through six games. Hurns has caught just 24 passes for 345 yards and one score while failing to hit the 100-yard mark in any game. He is the 52nd-ranked receiver in terms of fantasy points per game. However, all of the blame cannot be put on Hurns for his shortcomings.
A big reason for his lack of numbers has been quarterback Blake Bortles, who has taken a big step back in his third NFL season. Bortles’ poor play is hurting the entire Jacksonville Jaguars offense to the point that no one is a safe fantasy play going forward.
That includes Hurns in Week 8 when he faces the Tennessee Titans.
Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Hurns as the 42nd-best wide receiver in Week 8. However, he faces a Titans defense allowing the 10th-fewest points to receivers this season.
Keep Hurns on the bench this week.
