So far the best rookie wide receiver in the NFL didn’t get drafted

HurnsWho was the best rookie wide receiver after week one….

Well it wasn’t one of the guys drafted in the first round, or even a second or third rounder.  The leader was an undrafted free agent out of the University of Miami.  Allen  Hurns was a beast in his NFL debut.  He has turned into one of the best Jaguars receivers. 

Allen Hurns (undrafted, Jacksonville) 4 catches, 110 yards, 2 TDs
Kelvin Benjamin (1st round, 28th overall, Carolina) 6 catches, 92 yards, 1 TD
Brandin Cooks (1st round, 20th overall, New Orleans) 7 catches, 77 yards, 1 TD
Marquise Lee (2nd round, 39th overall, Jacksonville) 6 catches, 62 yards
Mike Evans (1st round, 7th overall, Tampa Bay) 5 catches, 37 yards
Sammy Watkins (1st round, 4th overall, Buffalo) 3 catches, 31 yards

Hurns finished his career at Miami seventh in school history with 121 receptions and 1,891 yards. 2013: Second-team All-ACC. Played all 13 games, starting 11. Led team in receptions (62) and yards (1,162). Second on team with 6 TD grabs. 1,162 receiving yards is a school record. 2012: Played 11 games, starting 8. Had 28 catches for 314 yards. Tied for team lead with 4 TDs. 2011: Played all 12 games, starting 7. Finished third on team in catches (31) and yards (415). 2010: Played 9 games, mostly on special teams. High School: Three-star recruit (Rivals) out of Florida.

I think you should claim in him Fantasy Football if you need a wide receiver, JUST SAYING…
