This one's pretty simple: Hurns is a veteran with underwhelming athleticism, crisp routes, and what could be a consistently high target share as a defacto #1 receiver. If that doesn't scream bargain bin WR3 production then idk what does.

The Cowboys have one of the worst receiving groups in the league, without a doubt, but Hurns is easily the best of the bunch right now. Michael Gallup could end up as the No. 1 target this season, although Hurns should be the favorite.

As of right now, Hurns is the No. 1 receiver for the Cowboys, though you shouldn't expect him to carry that role for very long with Michael Gallup in the picture. Still, there's value for a wide receiver who will see anywhere from 5-8 targets from Dak Prescott. Hurns did produce quite a few fantasy relevant weeks with Blake Bortles, so it's possible he turns out to be better than most expect.

The case for Hurns is simple: Who else is going to catch passes in Dallas? Although limited to 74 receptions over 21 games in the past two seasons, the 26-year-old joins a passing offense that bid farewell to Dez Bryant and Jason Witten. Then again, wasn't he supposed to be Jacksonville's top option when Allen Robinson went down for the season? He averaged a tame 48.4 YPG and did not garner a red-zone target after Week 4. Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams, and/or Michael Gallup could also answer the opening question, so treat Hurns as no more than bench depth with a solid target stream.

He's been hampered by injuries over the past couple of years, but when he has stayed health and gotten the targets he has been successful. His best season was in 2015, he had 105 Targets for 64 Receptions at 1031 Yards for 10 TDs, that's 16.11 Yards Per Reception and a 61% Catch Rate coming from Blake Bortles. He finished as the WR14 in Standard Scoring and WR18 in PPR.

The word is that Hurns is the Cowboys' clear-cut number one receiver as of now. He has produced before in an expanded role so it isn't crazy to see him performing as a flex play from week to week now that Dak is his QB.

The Boys finally have a half way competent #2
