Jaguars | Allen Hurns unlikely to play

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 12:59:02 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts. The team will have to rely on WRs Allen Robinson, Mike Brown and Tavarres King if both Hurns and WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) do not play.

Fantasy Tip: Plan not to have Hurns in your FantasyScore lineup. Robinson is a wild card and a deep sleeper for the minimum price for receivers.

Packers | Jermichael Finley to have bigger role?

Tue, 15 Oct 2013 09:05:58 -0700

The Green Bay Packers were forced to use mostly two-tight end, two-receiver, one-back sets when WRs James Jones (shin) and Randall Cobb (knee) were injured and left the Week 6 game. TE Jermichael Finley had all three of his catches for 75 yards in the second half of the contest with Jones and Cobb absent, meaning he could take on a much bigger role moving forward. "I don't know that his role will change," offensive coordinator Tom Clements said. "He's always been a focal point of the offense. Depending if Randall or James or both aren't in there then obviously he may get more opportunities, but we try to get him as many opportunities as we can based on how the defense is playing. Whoever's in there is going to have to come up and make plays. I'm certain he'll make his share."

WR Jarrett Boykin dropped two passes and caught just one of his six targets after Jones and Cobb left the game. The Packers may add WR Reggie Dunn off the practice squad or sign WR Tavarres King off the practice squad of the Denver Broncos. QB Aaron Rodgers had his lowest completion percentage (53.1 percent on 17 of 32 passing) against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Finley should be expected to receive more targets with Cobb out, and Jorday Nelson will likely see a similar boost in value. The Packers may also have to rely more on handing the ball off to Eddie Lacy. Either way you look at it, it would seem that this hurts the stock of Aaron Rodgers, too.

Broncos | Tavarres King likely to start as No. 5 WR

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 09:59:07 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Tavarres King continues to see work with the second-team offense, but he is expected to start the regular season as the team's No. 5 wide receiver behind WRs Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, Eric Decker and Andre Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: As such, King has very little short-term fantasy appeal. However, he could emerge as a legitimate fantasy weapon as the season progresses, especially if injuries fell the others.

Broncos | Tavarres Kings continues to shine

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 20:40:36 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Tavarres King (thigh) has carried over his momentum from offseason workouts into training camp. He was troubled by a thigh injury for most of offseason workouts, but he is healthy now and turning heads. "He's done a good job. We didn't get to see a ton of him during (offseason workouts)," offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. "But he's made some big plays down the field. He is catching the ball fairly consistently, and he's done a good job of not being the guy we are calling out to fix things. He studied his book, obviously, this summer and made sure he wasn't going to be the guy making mistakes."

Fantasy Tip: That's high praise for a rookie. King looks to be the frontrunner for the fourth receiver job. Anywhere else, that might mean minimal fantasy appeal, but he should still have a handful of targets each week even with Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Eric Decker healthy. If one of those guys go down to injury, remember the rookie for add-drops.

Broncos | Tavarres King to stretch the field

Tue, 07 May 2013 10:53:17 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Tavarres King, their fifth-round draft choice, has speed as his biggest asset, and he figures to add field-stretching ability to a stable of wide receivers - Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker - that is best known for their short to intermediate passing contributions. King may see some playing time for this reason as another option for QB Peyton Manning. "As a receiver I'm a guy that gets deep in a hurry, (I) led the FBS in yards per catch last year with 22. (I'm) somebody that you guys are going to be able to depend on, somebody who will do exactly as Peyton says," King said. "Peyton's going to put me in a position to succeed."

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos may have one of the most prolific offenses and aerial attacks in 2013 if Manning can stay healthy. They will be very dynamic, that's for sure, and King could add another dimension. However, with so many mouths to feed in the passing game, it's highly unlikely King sees enough field time to be fantasy-worthy.
