2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hurns signed a two-year deal with the Cowboys last offseason but did very little to earn his salary. He did play in all 16 games for the first time since he was a rookie in 2014, but he simply wasn't a factor in the Dallas passing game, catching only 20 passes on 35 targets for 295 yards, all career lows. He didn't see more than two targets in a game after the team's Week 8 bye, and with second-year wide receiver Michael Gallup moving into a starting role and Randall Cobb joining the team from Green Bay, it's unlikely Hurns' workload will increase in 2019. This is assuming he even hangs on to a roster spot coming out of camp. Read Past Outlooks

Past ankle injury
WRFree Agent
July 23, 2019
Hurns, who is set to be released by the Cowboys, has declared himself past the ankle injury that he suffered during the team's playoff run, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports. "No limitations," the wideout noted Tuesday, with regard to his injury status. "I was set to be full go for camp, so I'm ready."
ANALYSIS
Per David Moore of The Dallas Morning News, cutting Hurns frees up $5 million worth of cap space for the Cowboys. The 27-year-old was limited to 20 catches (on 35 targets) for 295 yards and two TDs in 16 games with Dallas last season. He'll look to catch on elsewhere, but given the limited production he put up last year, the 6-foot-3, 201-pounder will need to re-prove his fantasy utility wherever he lands. Hurns' 64/1,031/10 stat line over 15 games with the Jaguars in 2015 stands as his career-best effort, but in the three seasons since then, Hurns hasn't come close to putting up those numbers.

With Dez Bryant gone, Hurns profiles as the team's No. 1 WR, a surprising turn of events for a former undrafted free agent who had fallen down the depth chart in Jacksonville last summer. Hurns had a solid year in 10 games, and he put up big numbers in 2015 - 9.8 YPT and 10 TDs. At 6-3, 201, Hurns has decent size, and he's made plays downfield in his career despite not having good timed speed - 4.54 40. Hurns will play opposite the unspectacular Terrance Williams (who is recovering from foot surgery and was arrested in May), and with Jason Witten retiring, Hurns could be Dak Prescott's best weapon. But the offense will still revolve around Ezekiel Elliott, and Prescott might be more of a game manager than a gunslinger.
Hurns' dismal year was mercifully cut short by a hamstring injury that cost him five games. To that point, he hadn't done much -- 6.3 YPT, one catch for 40 yards, only three scores -- as the entire Jaguars passing game had fallen apart. It was a stark contrast from 2015, when Hurns averaged 9.8 YPT and scored 10 times. At 6-3, 201, Hurns has decent size, and before last year had been able to make big plays down the field despite his lack of timed speed (4.54 40.) Hurns sees occasional red-zone work, but Allen Robinson is the first read when the offense gets close. Hurns is expected to be healthy for the start of training camp, but his injury and down year opened the door for Marqise Lee to emerge as a contender for targets opposite Robinson. None of this will matter, of course, unless the team gets vastly improved play from its quarterbacks.
Hurns had two big games as a rookie, in Weeks 1 and 9, but otherwise the undrafted free agent wasn't a regular part of the team's offense. That changed in Year 2, as Hurns became the clear complement to Allen Robinson and scored 10 touchdowns. Hurns was also among the most efficient pass catchers in the league – his 16.1 YPC and 9.8 YPT both ranked fourth among the league's 32 100-target receivers. At 6-3, 205, Hurns has good length, and while he ran only a 4.54 40, he seems to play faster in pads – seven catches of 40-plus on 202 targets the last two years. Robinson is still the team's go-to target in the red zone (21 looks in that area to Hurns' 15, and 14 inside the 10 to Hurns' eight), and it's likely the Jaguars will run more often from in close this year, in part due to the Chris Ivory signing and in part due to regression to the mean (Jacksonville had 35 TD passes and only five on the ground.) Still, even if Marqise Lee and Julius Thomas finally stay healthy this year, Hurns has established himself as the No. 2 option on a pass-happy team. Hurns underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia in February, but took part in full drills in May and is expected to be healthy for the start of training camp.
Hurns came out of nowhere to haul in four catches for 110 yards and two scores in Week 1. After that, he was mostly quiet until Week 9 at Cincinnati where he repeated the act, going 7-112-2 before going largely back into obscurity. Given the team's anemic passing attack (31st in yards and YPA), any spark is a positive sign, and Hurns should slot in as the No. 3 receiver behind Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee. At 6-3, 195, Hurns has decent size, and while his 4.54 40 time was below average, he made four catches of 40-plus on 97 targets, so perhaps he plays faster in pads.
Hurns has quickly gone from a relatively unknown UDFA to a roster lock with the potential to contribute out of the gate in the Jags' offense.
