Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Hurns has a sprained foot and wants to play against a weak Baltimore Ravens secondary, but there's a chance that could not happen.
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.
