ESPN's Adam Schefter announced that Hurns would have to test out his sprained foot on Sunday morning and get cleared by team doctors who know they're on a short week. The Jaguars play the Tennessee Titans this Thursday, November 19th.

UPDATE: Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee will both be playing today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapaport.

How does this affect your fantasy football strategy? Well, two-fold.
First, it makes Allen Robinson, who's still not even a top-10 salary at $7,500, an even bigger bargain. Robinson is averaging 15.8 points per game (good for seventh in the league) and there's not a weaker secondary he'll be going up against all season.
Second, it gives caution to picking up Hurns, even if he's cleared. At $7,300, he's a great play when healthy. But even if he's cleared to play, he may get limited snaps.
