What’s Next? Allen Robinson or Allen Hurns to lead in Week 3?

Allen Hurns

After a Week 1 that saw him put together a strong five receptions on seven targets for 60 yards, but also contribute a fumble in the red zone, it was good to see Allen Hurns put together a strong outing in Week 2 as well.

Allen Hurns caught all four of his targets against the Miami Dolphins and came away with 68 yards as a result. While all of the attention was on Allen Robinson’s big day, Hurns quietly did exactly what was asked of him and helped move the offense.

I like what I have seen out of Hurns so far in two games. The fumble in Week 1 was terrible and absolutely wrecked a scoring chance, but he has been a strong receiver throughout both games thus far.

What I have not seen out of Allen Hurns yet is that big play ability that he displayed as a rookie last season. He was able to really exploit the weaknesses of a defense with his big body as a rookie and if he is able to get back to that as a more polished receiver then he could have some monstrous weeks for the Jacksonville Jaguars. I’d like to see him get back to that.

He is certainly capable of doing something special on offense.
