The Jacksonville Jaguars are coming into Week 11 with Allen Hurns and TJ Yeldon banged up, but both players are expected to play against the Titans on Thursday. Both players are worth starting in fantasy if they are active and players like Allen Robinson, Julius Thomas and Denard Robinson could also be productive for Blake Bortles against Tennessee.

The Jaguars offense has been pretty decent for fantasy owners this season and both Yeldon and Hurns have put up points on a consistent basis. According to Pro Football Talk, Yeldon is coming into the game listed as questionable after being limited in practice, while Allen Hurns is listed as probable for the game. According to the Florida Times-Union, Hurns was a full participant in practice on Tuesday and he is expected to play despite dealing with thigh and foot injuries.

Hurns reportedly may need sports-hernia surgery after the season ends, but he has been able to play with the injury and is expected to start on Thursday night. Hurns has been one of the most consistent fantasy options in the league this season, as he has scored seven touchdowns in nine games, making it into the end zone in each of the past seven games. Hurns has a solid stat line of 41 catches for 697 yards and seven TDs this year and he has been the one of the main redzone targets for Bortles on offense.

Yeldon is coming into the game listed as questionable with a foot injury and if he is limited or out, Denard Robinson could see some increased work. As long as Yeldon is starting, fantasy owners should use him on Thursday, as he has been solid for the Jags while rushing for 531 yards and adding 24 catches for 125 yards in his rookie season. Yeldon was in a walking boot earlier this week, but he was able to take off the boot on Tuesday. Yeldon sat out of practice on Tuesday, but he is expected to play Thursday night.

Allen Robinson has also put up strong numbers this season and he is the leading receiver for the Jaguars with 45 catches for 758 yards and seven touchdowns. Robinson and Hurns have been one of the most productive WR duos in the league this season and both players are worth starting on Thursday night. Robinson comes in after making five catches for 51 yards and a TD in the win last week and he finished with a solid 11 targets in the game.

Julius Thomas has been a bit inconsistent since coming back from an injury in Week 5, but he remains a decent TE2 option for fantasy owners. Thomas comes in with just six catches over the last three games, but the Titans have had some issues with tight ends this season on defense and that could open things up for Thomas on Thursday. Bortles is worth looking at for owners who have QBs on bye weeks, as he has had at least two touchdowns in each of his last five games.
