Jaguars vs. Titans fantasy football: Allen Hurns questionable for Week 13

New, comment

Jaguars receiver Allen Hurns suffered a concussion late last week against the Chargers and even if he's cleared to play, he shouldn't be a consideration.

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver was released from the hospital on Monday after an apparent concussion he suffered in the final minutes of the game against the San Diego Chargers. While he's currently questionable to play on Sunday, I'd be shocked if he got enough targets to justify his $6,800 salary for Week 13, which puts him at 21st place in terms of cost.

Aside from his recent concussion, Hurns is battling a groin injury over the past few weeks and had his worst game of the year statistically when the Jaguars played the Titans the first time around just two weeks ago -- targeted just four times and hauling in three passes for 17 yards.

The emergence of Julius Thomas as a legitimate receiving threat and Allen Robinson as the clear No. 1 receiver is going to take away at least half of Bortles' targets on any given Sunday. And even though Bortles threw 49 times last week against the Chargers, I don't see offensive coordinator Greg Olson doing that again this week. Expect Bortles to throw 28-32 times and for Thomas and Robinson to garner 15-18 of those targets.

That leaves an injured Hurns as the top target to compete with Bryan Walters, T.J. Yeldon, and Clay Harbor for the remaining 13-14 targets.

So, who is good value against the Titans? Well, I thought Bortles played okay against the Titans. He made a few mistakes, especially in the red zone, but he's limited his bad throws well in recent weeks. At $7,400, he's the 15th-most expensive quarterback for Week 13 and will probably get somewhere in the vicinity of 250 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception.

I think Jason Myers could be a huge value. He kicked four field goals in their first meeting and with red zone problems likely to continue for the rest of the year, I could see him getting three or four field goals this Sunday.

Finally, I talked about Thomas emerging as a legitimate threat in the passing game earlier. At $5,800, he's the 9th-most expensive tight end for Week 13, and I think another performance like last week where he got 116 yards and one touchdown isn't out of the question.
