Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for this weekend's game against the Redskins.  He put in a limited practice on Wednesday but then sat out Thursday and Friday.  He won't play against Washington.  That leaves Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee as Jacksonville's top 2 WRs.  Consider both guys low-end WR3s in fantasy.

Jags WR Marqise Lee suffered a hamstring injury in Wednesday’s practice. We’ll see if he puts in any work the rest of the week, but for now, consider him questionable for Sunday’s matchup with Washington. Allen Hurns would retain a full-time role if Lee ends up sitting out. The UDFA played 90% of Jacksonville’s snaps Week 1 at Philadelphia and tallied 2 TDs.

Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday.  Barring a setback, we're expecting him to play against the Redskins this weekend.  That'll put a wrench in the plans of owners hoping to start Allen Hurns.  We'd avoid the Jags WR situation in Week 2.

Updating a previous item, Jaguars WR Allen Hurns, not WR Mike Brown, will start in place of WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) against the Eagles today.  Hurns turned in an impressive preseason but shouldn't be in fantasy lineups.

Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's opener against the Eagles.  Shorts struggled with a bum hamstring throughout August and tweaked it in practice this week.  His absence leaves rookies Marqise Lee, Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson as Jacksonville's top 3 WRs.  Lee is the best bet to lead the way in targets but is only worth considering as a cheap filler in daily fantasy games.

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns exploded for 7 catches, 113 yards and a score in Friday night’s preseason game. The undrafted rookie has been buzzing in training camp and did a good chunk of his damage against the Lions’ starters. Hurns goes 6’1, 198 pounds with 4.55 speed. More importantly, he played in Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch’s offense at the University of Miami. He’s clearly settled in quickly in Jacksonville. Hurns won’t open the season higher than 3rd on the depth chart but could climb in an unsettled WR group. We wouldn’t roster him in standard fantasy leagues, but he’s worth keeping an eye on.
