WRs Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson are planning to return for the 2021 season, per Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. Both players opted out last year due to COVID-19. Citing a team source, Salguero writes that “both [players] are in the team’s plans.” One of Hurns or Wilson might enter the deep league radar this fall, but don’t bet on it. The Dolphins are still in play for a top free agent WR, while they’ve been linked heavily to the top WRs in the draft.
Dolphins WR Allen Hurns has opted out of the 2020 season. He was set to play a depth role for the Fins. Miami is now down to Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant, Isaiah Ford and Mack Hollins behind DeVante Parker and Preston Williams on the depth chart. Those names are worth remembering in OC Chan Gailey's WR-friendly offense.
The Dolphins are comfortable with their current WR corps heading into the 2020 campaign, according to the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson. DeVante Parker and Preston Williams were both big surprises this past year. Parker broke out for a 72-1,202-9 line and signed a big 4-year extension in December. Williams was pacing toward an 856-yard, 6-TD rookie season before tearing his ACL in November. He's tentatively expected to be ready for Week 1. Parker and Williams figure to open 2020 as Miami's top 2 WRs, with Allen Hurns, Albert Wilson, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Ford providing depth.
Dolphins WRs Albert Wilson (ribs) and Jakeem Grant (ankle) both exited Sunday's game against the Browns. Neither has been a fantasy factor this year, but their absences open up a few extra targets for WR DeVante Parker, WR Allen Hurns and TE Mike Gesicki.
Dolphins HC Brian Flores announced Monday that WR Preston Williams will miss the rest of the season with the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Jets. No word yet on Williams' exact injury or whether it'll impact his availability for the start of the 2020 campaign. It's the end of a promising rookie season that saw Williams dominate in preseason action and then post a 32-428-3 line in 8 regular season games. He leaves behind 7.5 targets per game. Allen Hurns is the best bet to step into Williams' spot but isn't worth rostering in fantasy right now. WR DeVante Parker and TE Mike Gesicki should get volume boosts with Williams out.
Update: ESPN's Cameron Wolfe reports that it's an ACL tear for Williams. We'll see if he can get back to full strength for the start of next season.
Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (hip, calf) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chargers after a limited week of practice. He’s been out since Week 1 and shouldn’t be in your Week 4 fantasy plans. WR Allen Hurns (concussion) is out, leaving Preston Williams, DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant as Miami’s healthy WRs.
Dolphins WR Allen Hurns sustained a concussion early in Sunday's game against the Cowboys. His absence leaves DeVante Parker, Preston Williams and Jakeem Grant as Miami's top 3 WRs.
Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (calf, hip) is out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. DeVante Parker, Allen Hurns, Jakeem Grant and Preston Williams will serve as Miami’s top 4 WRs but none is a bankable fantasy play.
Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (hip, calf) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Patriots this weekend. That'd leave DeVante Parker, Allen Hurns, Jakeem Grant and Preston Williams as Miami's top 4 WRs. None is a recommended fantasy play vs. a tough New England secondary.
The Dolphins have signed WR Allen Hurns to a 1-year deal worth up to $3 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Recently cut by the Cowboys, Hurns is reportedly recovered from the dislocated ankle and broken leg he suffered during last year's playoffs. The 27-year-old has totaled just 1,256 yards over the past 3 seasons after that huge 1,031-yard, 10-TD 2015 campaign. Hurns should at least slide in as Miami's #4 WR and could push Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson for snaps. It'll be a situation to keep an eye on over the next month.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is off to an uneven start to training camp. “Well, we’re a work in progress,” OC Scott Linehan said. “We’re not where we want to be, but there’s bright spots, things we build on." It's early, and this shouldn't come as a major surprise considering the wholesale changes to Dallas' pass-catching corps. But in a time of the year when everyone is "in the best shape of their lives" and "ready for a breakout season," it's notable to hear a negative report on an offense. We'll be keeping a close eye on the Cowboys this preseason, but this isn't a passing game we're looking to invest in heavily.
The Cowboys are expected to release WR Dez Bryant, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Todd Archer. We've heard whispers about this for a while now. Dallas reportedly wants Bryant to take a pay cut from the $12.5 million he's scheduled to earn this year and next -- and the mercurial WR evidently isn't willing to oblige. The 2 sides are meeting today, but a divorce is expected "barring an unexpected last-minute change of heart," Schefter tweets. Bryant's production has crated since 3-straight seasons of 1,200+ yards from 2012 to 2014. Over the past 3 years, he's totaled just 150 catches for 2,035 yards and 17 TDs across 38 appearances. He seemingly struggled to get on the same page as QB Dak Prescott, corralling just 52.2% of his targets over the last 2 seasons. Bryant is still just 29, so there's certainly a chance he bounces back in 2018. We'll see where he lands before assessing his fantasy value. The Cowboys, meanwhile, are left with Terrance Williams, Allen Hurns and Cole Beasley atop their WR depth chart. They figure to be in the market for a rookie WR or 2.
Update: They did.
The Cowboys have signed WR Allen Hurns to a 2-year deal worth $12 million. Hurns joins an offense that saw only Dez Bryant crack 4 receptions per game last season. TE Jason Witten heads into his age-36 season coming off the fewest catches since his rookie year. WR Terrance Williams caught a career-high 53 balls while averaging a career-low 10.7 yards per reception. He's heading into just Year 2 of a 4-year contract and could be a cut candidate after 2018. Hurns' contract suggests he'll compete for the #2 WR job. He's worth a look in the double-digit rounds of early best-ball drafting but not an exciting fantasy football prospect.
The Jaguars have released WR Allen Hurns. Since topping 1,000 yards and scoring 10 times back in 2015, he's totaled just 961 yards and 5 TDs in the 2 seasons since. Hurns can make plays downfield and is only 26, so it shouldn't take him long to find a new home. Jacksonville, meanwhile, will move forward with Marqise Lee, Donte Moncrief, Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole atop the WR depth chart.
Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game against the Titans for a playoff tuneup after missing the past 6 weeks. WRs Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole remain better Week 17 fantasy plays. WR Marqise Lee (ankle) is out.
