General News (Sat Nov 17): has played less than 20 snaps in back-to-back games, but he said he is staying patient. "Just wait for the opportunity and control what I can," Hurns said.

Week 11: at Atlanta Falcons

All WR vs ATL

FBG says: Good matchup. New Cowboy Amari Cooper has been a tremendous increase to this offense. It's a bit disappointing when a receiver averaging 67 yards over 2 games has made a significant impact but the upgrade over Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson has been just that sizable. Cooper isn't a perfect receiver by any means, but he's a creative route-runner who can win one-on-one matchups which is something Hurns isn't really a threat to do more than once or twice a game. Dak Prescott has taken notice, and Cooper is now entrenched ahead of Hurns, Thompson, and rookie Michael Gallup as the No. 1. The worry is that his Oakland-era inconsistency pops back up as Cooper has always been prone to drops and mental miscues, but his presence means nothing but good news for Prescott. The rest of this attack is nothing special, led by limited slot man Cole Beasley and a few low-volume outside guys, so Prescott's passing value doesn't necessarily soar. But it's certainly a step forward for a unit that produced just 202 yards a game before the Cooper trade. Prescott has thrown for 243 and 270 since. Atlanta's pass defense remains a tattered, thoroughly-beatable unit up and down the field. Only 3 times thus far have they held their opponent below 306 passing yards: in Week 1 against Nick Foles, and in a pair of midseason matchups with passers that completed 73% of throws. (They still managed to allow six air touchdowns over those last two.) On the whole, quarterbacks are churning out a solid 7.3 net yards per attempt (sixth-most in football), a sign that these Falcons can neither stop the downfield pass or rush the passer. The team needs new acquisition Bruce Irvin to generate pressure, because Vic Beasley (just 1.0 sack through 9 games) isn't doing it, and the secondary is struggling mightily without its starting safeties. The biggest hole is down the middle, where rising-star Ricardo Allen is badly missed as a centerfield-type playmaker, and deep seam passes keep finding their marks.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 4 vs DET (5 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)

Allen Hurns saw five targets against Detroit but was an ancillary puzzle piece to Dallas' passing game. Hurns' greatest impact came on two receptions in the fourth quarter, including a third down catch to extend Dallas' game-winning drive. Earlier in the game, Hurns had a nice toe-drag on an out-breaking route to secure the catch.

2018 Week 1 vs CAR (3 / 1 / 20 / 0 rec)

Hurns had the second-most snaps of Dallas wide receivers, but had only a single notable play against Carolina. Hurns showed quality ball skills high-pointing a pass over the middle in the third quarter. Hurns' other opportunity of note came on a deep out route, only to be overthrown by Dak Prescott on the play. With the entire Dallas receiver group struggling outside of Cole Beasley in the slot, Hurns can emerge as a central figure for Dallas with better quarterback play.

Cowboys | Allen Hurns not seeing the field (Fri Nov 16, 09:50 PM) - Dallas Cowboys WR Allen Hurns has played less than 20 snaps in back-to-back games, but he said he is staying patient. 'Just wait for the opportunity and control what I can,' Hurns said.

Our View: The trade for Amari Cooper just pushed Hurns further down the pecking order. Cooper, Michael Gallup and Cole Beasley are the top three receivers for the Cowboys. Fantasy GMs should have moved on from Hurns already.
