Allen Hurns: Likely headed for depth role

Hurns projects for a backup role in 2020, Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Hurns opened last season in a part-time role and elevated to the No. 2 receiver job after Preston Williams suffered an ACL tear in Week 9. The 28-year-old had an efficient season with a 68.1 percent catch rate and 8.9 yards per target, but he never topped five catches or 68 yards in any one game, ultimately catching 32 passes on 522 offensive snaps. Given that he signed a two-year extension in November, Hurns figures to keep his roster spot in 2020, though the extent of his role may depend on Williams' recovery. The Dolphins might also consider using Hurns in the slot, especially if Albert Wilson becomes a cap casualty. Hurns' experience playing both inside and outside makes him useful as a No. 4 receiver, capable of filling in at any of the WR spots. He should be fully recovered from the ankle and neck injuries that caused him to miss Week 17 last season.

Allen Hurns: Sitting in Week 17

Hurns (ankle/neck) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt against the Patriots.

Analysis: The young veteran headed into the weekend with a legitimate questionable tag, but he apparently didn't show enough in pregame warmups to warrant active status. Hurns signed a contract extension with the Dolphins earlier this season and finished the campaign with a 32-416-2 line on 47 targets, stepping up his play in the second half of the season. His absence Sunday could lead to an uptick in snaps and targets for isaiah Ford and Albert Wilson.

Allen Hurns: Takes questionable tag into finale

Hurns (ankle/neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Hurns was listed as a limited participant in practice throughout the week, preventing him from earning clearance in advance of the season finale. In the event the 28-year-old ultimately avoids the inactive list, he should see a fair amount of snaps in a four-man receiver rotation that also includes DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson and Isaiah Ford.

Allen Hurns: Limited in practice Thursday

Hurns (ankle/neck) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Hurns has logged back-to-back limited practice sessions. The 28-year-old will likely manage to play through his injuries during Sunday's regular-season finale against the Patriots, in which case he'll play his usual role as Miami's No.3 wideout.

Allen Hurns: Limited to begin week

Hurns (ankle/neck) was a limited participant in Wednesday's estimated practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Hurns was forced out of Week 16's win over the Bengals due to a shoulder issue, and he's now nursing ankle and neck injuries. Still, there's not yet any reason to worry that the 28-year-old is in danger of missing Sunday's divisional contest against the Patriots.

Allen Hurns: Shoulder issue

Hurns left Sunday's game against the Bengals after suffering a shoulder injury.

Analysis: Prior to his exit from the contest, Hurns caught both of his targets for 41 yards. In his absence, Isaiah Ford could see some added opportunities in the Miami passing offense.

Allen Hurns: Cleared to play Sunday

Hurns (ankle/knee) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Bengals after practicing in a limited fashion this week.

Analysis: Hurns is thus in line to see work in three-receiver sets alongside DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson, but he's tough to trust in Week 16 fantasy lineups after seeing just one target (which resulted in a nine-yard catch) in last Sunday's loss to the Giants,

December 20, 2019 3:01 PM EST

Allen Hurns: Limited Wednesday

Hurns was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Hurns was held out of last Wednesday's practice due to ankle and knee injuries, but he managed to suit up without any issues Week 15. The 28-year-old appears on track for Sunday's tilt against the Bengals, in which case he'll suit up as the No. 3 wideout behind DeVante Parker (hip) and Albert Wilson (hip).

December 18, 2019 1:53 PM EST

Allen Hurns: Held to one catch

Hurns caught his only target for nine yards during Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Hurns is operating behind DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson and Mike Gesicki in the pecking order of Miami's aerial attack, with running back Patrick Laird also demanding a larger target share. Without high enough upside to balance out his low floor, Hurns doesn't warrant fantasy consideration outside the deepest of leagues.

Allen Hurns: Suiting up versus Giants

Hurns (ankle/knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's tilt against the Giants, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Hurns was unable to practice Wednesday due to ankle and knee injuries, but he's now logged two consecutive full practices and looks back to full health. With DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson still in the concussion protocol, but making progress, Hurns could play a lead role in Miami's receiver corps Sunday in New York.

Allen Hurns: Practicing without limitations

Hurns (ankle/knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Hurns didn't practice Wednesday while nursing ankle and knee injuries, but he now appears back to full health. With DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson both still in the concussion protocol and limited in practice, Hurns could be called upon to step into an every-down role on offense during Sunday's tilt against the Giants.

December 12, 2019 12:45 PM EST

Allen Hurns: Back at practice

Hurns (ankle/knee) is participating in Thursday's practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Hurns was held out of Wednesday's practice due to ankle and knee injuries, so even if he ends up listed as "limited" on Thursday's practice report it'll represent a step in the right direction. If the 28-year-old is able to get healthy in time for Sunday's tilt against the Giants, he could be in line for a lead role in Miami's receiving corps with DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson both still in the concussion protocol.

December 12, 2019 8:54 AM EST

Allen Hurns: Non-participant Wednesday

Hurns (ankle/knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Hurns appears to have sustained ankle and knee injuries during Week 14's divisional loss against the Jets, during which he hauled in five of eight targets for a season-high 68 yards. With DeVante Parker (concussion) and Albert Wilson (concussion) both limited in practice Wednesday, Miami's only healthy wide receivers to begin the week are Isaiah Ford, Mack Hollins and Trevor Davis.

December 11, 2019 3:26 PM EST

Allen Hurns: Five catches against Jets

Hurns caught five of eight targets for 68 yards in Sunday's 22-21 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: No. 1 receiver DeVante Parker exited with a concussion, but Hurns still played second fiddle to Isaiah Ford, who finished with 92 yards on nine targets. Hurns will have some deep-league appeal in Week 15 against a Giants defense that's struggled to defend the wide receiver position, especially if Parker has to miss that game.

December 8, 2019 3:17 PM EST

Allen Hurns: Minor impact vs. Eagles

Hurns caught three of four targets for 33 yards during Sunday's 37-31 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Wilson served as the No. 3 wideout behind DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson in Sunday's contest, and he also worked with a lesser target share than tight end Mike Gesicki. Though the 28-year-old is operating in a starting role due to the lack of depth in Miami's banged-up receiver corps, he doesn't offer much upside aside from the occasional touchdown. Hurns has exceeded 50 yards in just two contests this season, and he's scored twice.

December 2, 2019 8:35 AM EST

Allen Hurns: Practicing without limitations

Hurns (ankle) is practicing in full Friday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Hurns kicked off the week limited due to an ankle issue, but he looks to have managed a full recovery. Alongside DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson, the 28-year-old appears on track to serve as one of Miami's three starting receivers against the Eagles on Sunday. Hurns has accumulated a combined eight catches for 95 yards and one touchdown over the last two weeks, giving him some fantasy upside in depth leagues.

November 29, 2019 10:53 AM EST

Allen Hurns: Nursing ankle issue

Hurns was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: Hurns seems to have suffered an ankle injury during Week 12's loss to the Browns. His status in practice will be worth monitoring as Sunday's contest against the Eagles approaches. With Jakeem Grant (ankle) now on injured reserve and Albert Wilson (hip/chest) battling injuries, Hurns could be in for a key role in Miami's aerial attack if healthy.

November 27, 2019 1:57 PM EST

Allen Hurns: Gets into end zone in loss

Hurns brought in four of seven targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' 41-24 loss to the Browns on Sunday.

Analysis: Hurns was a distant second to DeVante Parker in receiving yardage on the afternoon, but he was able to notch his second touchdown of the season late in the fourth quarter from 19 yards out. The sixth-year pro now has back-to-back four-catch efforts, and he'll look to build on Sunday's performance versus the Eagles in Week 13.

November 24, 2019 2:28 PM EST

Allen Hurns: Targeted six times in loss

Hurns caught four of six passes for 53 yards during Sunday's 37-20 loss to Buffalo. He lost a fumble during the contest.

Analysis: Hurns set season highs in catches, targets and yards during Sunday's performance as he continues to assert himself in the pecking order. Hurns has now been targeted at least thrice in three consecutive games, which doesn't sound like much until you notice that he was targeted three times just once in his first six outings. He's trending upward, but is probably not worth much attention Sunday against a highly rated Browns pass defense.

November 17, 2019 3:22 PM EST

Allen Hurns: Signs two-year extension

Hurns signed a two-year, $8 million extension with the Dolphins on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Allen hasn't exactly been productive in his first season with the Dolphins, recording just 13 receptions, 170 receiving yards and one touchdown through eight games this season. That production evidently was enough to earn an extension, however, that will lock up the 2014 undrafted rookie free agent with the Dolphins until 2021.
