Injury Alert: Jaguars WR Allen Robinson Has Torn ACL

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without No. 1 receiver Allen Robinson for the remainder of the season after he sustained a torn ACL against the Houston Texans on Sunday. 

Robinson's injury occurred immediately after his first catch of the season on a non-contact play. Jacksonville ruled him out almost immediately, a clear indication that the injury itself was serious. 

Robinson, 24, has averaged 76.5 receptions for 1,141 yards and 10 touchdowns over the past two seasons. He finished as a top-seven fantasy receiver during that span. 

With Robinson now out of action for the remainder of the season, look for Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns to take over as the Jaguars' two starters. Rookie Dede Westbrook will also play a role once he returns from injured reserve. 

In Sunday's blowout 29-7 win over Houston, Allen Hurns led the team with three receptions for 42 yards on four targets. 

Now that the Jaguars' have decided to go with a run-heavy offense with rookie Leonard Fournette, he remains he most viable fantasy option on the team. Fournette put up 124 yards on 29 touches against Houston in his NFL regular season debut.
