Draft Strategy

The Lowdown: Allen Hurns and Randall Cobb

Fantasy Football updates covering Randall Cobb, Kirk Cousins, and Allen Hurns.

Randall Cobb


Randall Cobb left Saturdays game with an apparent shoulder injury. It appeared to be a string of bad luck for the Packers after they lost Jordy Nelson for the season. Luckily, his injury seems to be minor. He’s considered day-to-day and they’re not sure if he’ll be ready for Week 1. This shouldn’t affect your mentality when it comes to your upcoming drafts. I’ll be drafting Cobb as if he wasn’t injured. However, on the off chance Cobb does miss Week 1, this would make Davante Adams more of a must-play than he already is on DraftKings and FanDuel. I give my first impressions for DraftKings, where Adams is only $4,400 and FanDuel, where he’s a mere $5,500. People are clamoring for Jeff Janis as the No. 3 wide reciever in Green Bay, but Anthony Amico thinks we shouldn’t dismiss Ty Montgomery.

Allen Hurns

From Rotoworld.com:

Allen Hurns pulled in four catches for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars’ third preseason game.
He eventually exited with “hip tightness,” but should be fine and pulling Hurns was likely a precautionary measure by the Jaguars. Sleeper Hurns pulled in a first-quarter red-zone TD from Blake Bortles off a play-action fake. Hurns tacked on an 18-yard reception two drives later. In the Jags’ two-receiver attack, Hurns will be the starter opposite Allen Robinson this year
Allen Hurns clearly has the No. 2 wide receiver job locked down foe the Jaguars. He didn’t have much competition as Marqise Lee spends most of his days on the injury report. Hurns could make for an intriguing late-round pick starting opposite of Allen Robinson. He’s a starting wide receiver who comes with a free draft cost. Hurns has a positional ADP at WR91 and the RotoViz staff projections have him projected for WR69. Allen Hurns makes Shawn Siegele’s list of top-15 dynasty sleepers for 2015.
