Week 12: at Arizona Cardinals
FBG says: Neutral matchup. Blake Bortles struggled mightily last week as he could only muster 154 passing yards and one touchdown against the Browns. Bortles also coughed up two fumbles, losing one. The Jaguars are a run-first team as Bortles has had very much of a game-manager role for most of this season, passing for over 300 yards in just one game and only one game with more than one touchdown. Bortles has had exactly one passing touchdown in each of his last five games, so don't look for much upside out of him on a regular basis. Marquise Lee has been the only reliable receiving option for the Jaguars this season, but he was dealing with a knee injury for most of the last week and had a relatively mediocre game because of it. Lee is averaging just over 50 receiving yards per game this season but has only one game with over 80 receiving yards and just two touchdowns. Overall, this is a passing offense to avoid for all intents and purposes. The Cardinals passing defense has definitely been exploitable this season as they have given up the fifth and sixth most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks and wide receivers respectively. Most of this production, however, has come from receivers NOT facing Patrick Peterson--as Peterson has been one of the best shutdown cornerbacks in the league. Marquise Lee should see the pleasure of facing Peterson this week, meaning the rest of the Jaguars receivers should have a decent shot at some production. Rookie Dede Westbrook finally saw the first catches of his career last week, but he was out-snapped by their other rookie receiver Keelan Cole. Westbrook has game-changing speed, so if he can get more snaps, he could be a boom or bust candidate for a big play against the struggling Cardinals safeties.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 10 vs LAC (9 / 7 / 70 / 0 rec)
Hurns left the game with an injury late but he had a fantastic game. He made two terrific catches to move the chains on slants. Bortles threw it to tight windows behind Hurns, but he adjusted and made acrobatic catches in front of multiple defenders.
2017 Week 9 vs CIN (4 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)
Hurns was consistently open vs the Bengals, but he also drew more coverage from the Bengals best defensive backs. He did not get many targets, catching all three of the passes that came his way. His best play was on curl route where he broke a tackle and extended for the first down. He has been dependable as of late.
2017 Week 7 vs IND (8 / 5 / 101 / 0 rec)
Hurns is the Jaguars first WR to reach 100 yards in a game this season. He turned two passes over the middle into giant gains for the Jaguars to get them into scoring position, continuing his streak of performing against the Colts. He got consistent separation and looked like he was in constant sync with his QB. He was the Jaguars best wideout.
2017 Week 6 vs LAR (3 / 3 / 37 / 0 rec)
Hurns was not targeted much by Bortles yet again, despite playing well. He caught all 3 targets that went his way, including one for a big 3rd down conversion. He had another good day of getting open against coverage but the ball just is not finding him.
2017 Week 5 vs PIT (3 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)
Hurns didn't put up numbers since the Jaguars passing game was made such a non-factor. He was the target on two different 3rd downs and hauled in one tough pass but other than that he was not really involved with the game.
2017 Week 4 vs NYJ (10 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)
Hurns has the same game he's had all season, really. He was the teams most consistent wideout. He picked up key first downs. He was constantly open, several times deep for touchdowns, but Bortles either never saw him or couldn't get the ball to him. Hurns is being wasted with Bortles as his QB. He is finally getting more volume than Lee is but the passes are so errant that it doesn't even matter.
2017 Week 3 vs BAL (3 / 3 / 20 / 1 rec)
Hurns caught every pass that came his way, including one for a touchdown. Sadly, that was only 3 passes, and none of them was a pass longer than 9 yards. Hurns did a good job of staying open and giving Blake an option to go to but with Lewis and Lee seeing so many of the targets, his numbers suffered.
2017 Week 2 vs TEN (7 / 6 / 82 / 1 rec)
Allen Hurns was the beneficiary of some garbage time production but other than that he was invisible. He struggled to get open, though his QB and Offensive Coordinator did him zero favors. Hurns still has some talent but he is simply not able to develop any more with Blake Bortles as his quarterback.
2017 Week 1 vs HOU (4 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
Hurns had one bad drop but other than that he was the Jaguars best wideout. He was consistently open and helped move the chains on several key third downs. His best play was a dig route where he beat tight coverage and converted a 3rd-and-eight by catching a pass in a contested situation. Him and Bortles have a strong rapport so expect for his workload to increase with Robinson sidelined.

Our View: Hurns isn't ready yet, and we don't expect him to play against Arizona. Marquise Lee is the last man standing and Blake Bortles' top option this week again, and should be a nice WR3 option.
