Hurns caught five of six targets for 74 yards during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Hurns finished second on the team in targets, catches and yardage in what was a nice bounce-back performance after he was shut out last week. He came into the game with just 84 receiving yards through the first six weeks, so this comfortable season high indicates that he could be working his way into the offensive gameplan. Hurns will enjoy a bye next week before taking on the Titans in Week 9.

Hurns caught three of five targets for 30 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

While he did tie for the team lead in targets with three other receivers, Hurns has yet to make much of an impact for the Cowboys -- the 30 yards were a season high for the fifth-year wideout. With only 14 targets through four games, the volume just isn't there for Hurns to be useful in most fantasy formats.

Hurns caught two of four targets for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

He was once again minimally involved in the Cowboys' somnambulant passing game, although Hurns' four targets actually tied with Michael Gallup for the team lead among wide receivers. Until Dak Prescott starts (or is allowed to start) looking downfield on a consistent basis as opposed to dinking and dunking, it will be hard for any Dallas wideout to put up consistently useful fantasy numbers.

Hurns caught one of two targets for nine yards during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Hurns signed with Dallas before the release of Dez Bryant and, among the variety of new acquisitions, was thought to be the most likely to try to fill the No. 1 role. That hasn't played out yet. September pick-up Deonte Thompson has been more productive and Cole Beasley has led the team across most statistical categories. Hold off until Hurns until he shows chemistry with Dak Prescott that hasn't been exhibited yet.

Hurns caught one of three targets for 20 yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

The entire Cowboys passing game struggled thanks to inconsistent play by both Dak Prescott and the offensive line, resulting in a quiet first game for Hurns in a Dallas uniform. He still saw more targets than either Terrance Williams or rookie Michael Gallup, however, and Hurns' chemistry with Prescott can only grow from here.

Hurns finished the preseason with three catches for 26 yards.

EDGE Analysis

The assumption since the Cowboys parted ways with Dez Bryant in April was that Hurns might be the No. 1 receiver in Dallas by default to begin the season. Rookie Michael Gallup pulled in seven catches for 75 yards and a touchdown during the preseason, and it's likely that he'll work in tandem with Hurns as the Cowboys' outside receivers while Cole Beasley serves as the primary slot option in Week 1.

Hurns (groin) got the start at wide receiver during Thursday's preseason opener against the 49ers and finished the day with one catch for 13 yards.

EDGE Analysis

There was some concern surrounding Hurns' ability to suit up Thursday given the receiver's recent struggles with an unspecified groin injury in training camp. While nothing spectacular, Hurns' performance put to bed most questions about his health, turning attention back towards the discussion of who in this receiving corps will emerge as Dak Prescott's top target in the passing game in 2018. Hurns and Terrance Williams are the favorites at this juncture, but there's potential for third-round rookie Michael Gallup, or perhaps one of the Cowboys' tight ends, to contend for the role as well.

Hurns is part of a receiving corps that no longer includes Dez Bryant, who the Cowboys released Friday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Released by the Jaguars on March 20 and signed to a two-year, $11 million contract just a few days later, Hurns may end up assuming the No. 1 receiver mantle in Dallas, though the team figures to take a close look at the top wideouts in the upcoming draft. Terrance Williams is recovering from foot surgery after failing to score a single touchdown last season, while Cole Beasley is a slot specialist and fellow offseason addition Deonte Thompson profiles as a low-volume deep threat. Hurns offers the most complete skill set of the bunch, boasting career marks of 8.0 yards per target and 51.3 receiving yards per game, with experience both outside and in the slot. He was held to 74 catches for 961 yards and five touchdowns over 21 games the past two seasons, but injuries were a big part of the problem both years, and Blake Bortles was simply awful in 2016. The 26-year-old wideout figures to be an important part of a Dallas offense that wants to throw downfield more often this upcoming season, likely ticketed for a starting job even if the team uses its first-round pick on another receiver.

Hurns is signing a two-year contract with the Cowboys, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Released by the Jaguars earlier in the week, Hurns didn't take long to find a new team. He caught only 74 passes for 961 yards and five touchdowns in 21 games the past two seasons, but he did at least rebound from an efficiency standpoint in 2017, hauling in 39 of 56 targets (69.7 percent) for 484 yards (8.6 YPT) and two touchdowns. The 26-year-old joins a Dallas wideout group that already includes Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley and recent signing Deonte Thompson. All three incumbents are coming off down seasons, but only Beasley, a slot specialist, can be released without a dead cap charge above $7 million, per OverTheCap. Hurns mostly played outside during his productive 2014 and 2015 campaigns, but he also looked comfortable as the Jaguars' primary slot receiver last year.

Hurns will visit the Cowboys on Wednesday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hurns was originally slated to visit the Jets, but with a snowstorm on its way to New York on Wednesday he opted to redirect to Dallas. The 26-year-old would join Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley in the team's receiving corps if he signs with the Cowboys.
