The Dolphins released WR Allen Hurns with a failed physical designation, ESPN Senior NFL Insider Adam Schefter announced on Twitter Thursday morning.
Hurns hasn't played a down in the league since 2019. He missed last season with a wrist injury and opted out of the 2020 season. In 2019, though, the WR appeared in 14 games [7 starts], totaling 32 receptions on 47 targets for 416 yards and two touchdowns. If Hurns gets a chance with another team, his landing spot determines his fantasy value.
Dolphins WR Allen Hurns will miss three months after injuring his wrist. The injury will require surgery and will likely not return until the latter half of the season.
It's a tough break for Hurns, who missed all of 2020 after opting out of the season and will now miss a majority of 2021 with a wrist injury. Hurns had a 1,000 yard year in his last healthy season, and was expected to be the Dolphins WR3 until teammate Will Fuller got back up to game speed following the end of his suspension.
Dolphins WR Allen Hurns has informed the team he is opting out of the 2020 season.
In his statement, Hurns said how tough a decision it was for him to make, but he ultimately decided to play it safe with a baby boy on the way. That leaves DaVante Parker, Preston Williams, Albert Wilson, and Jakeem Grant as the top-4 WRs on the Dolphins roster.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Allen Hurns is inactive for Week 17 against the New England Patriots.
Allen Hurns will miss Week 17's contest, but it is hard to upgrade any of the Dolphins pass catchers due to a tough matchup against the New England Patriots. DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson, and Mike Gesicki should see a boost in targets with Hurns out of the lineup.
Allen Hurns caught both of his targets for 41 yards in the Dolphins' Week 16 overtime win over the Bengals.
Hurns is firmly a role player on the Dolphins with no reliable target volume. Unless he climbs the depth chart, he's not likely to be a viable fantasy option any time soon.
