Allen Hurns, wide receiver, Jacksonville Jaguars
Allen Hurns has been highlighted already, but he’s worth talking about twice.
The second-year wide receiver continues to be ridiculously productive for Blake Bortles and the Jacksonville Jaguars offense. Posting 116 yards on five receptions with a touchdown is no easy task, but Hurns made it look easy. Even when catching balls in tight windows, Hurns managed to make it all look simple and out-battled defensemen for the ball and big yardage afterward.
The highlight of the day wasn’t his touchdown grab, but his big 59-yard catch and run on fourth and forever, giving the Jaguars a chance to get in the end zone (which they did) and get within a score before the game ended. On that play especially, he made it look easy. He simply snagged the ball and took off toward the end zone. He didn’t get in, but he put the team in excellent position to score.
As both Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns battle to be the first wide receiver to eclipse 1000 yards since Jimmy Smith, Hurns pulls ahead. He now has 430 yards on the year.
