PHI QB Jalen Hurts - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. San Francisco
Jalen Hurts had a strong 2021 debut in Atlanta. He completed 77% of his passes and threw for 264 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for 62 yards. Hurts can be very dynamic and that is a fantasy plus. The fast start should give him confidence heading into the home opener.

The matchup will be tougher as the Niners come to town. San Fran was ranked fourth in aFPA to quarterbacks last year and has a defense that is considered one of the NFC's best.

Start Hurts for Week 2 but he is ranked as a low-end QB1. We don't expect the numbers to be as good against the 49ers but they shouldn't be that far off from last Sunday.

PHI QB Jalen Hurts - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 at Atlanta
The Eagles might or might not be good. But many think Jalen Hurts will be an effective fantasy quarterback to matter Philly's fate. The dual-threat Hurts will get rushing and passing yards as he proved last year. The Birds did get him more weapons including Devonta Smith and Kenneth Gainwell in the draft.

Hurts will face a Falcons defense that was ranked 31st in aFPA to quarterback last season. This is a great matchup for him and it will help the Eagles overall passing game.

The matchup pushes Hurts to your starting lineup for Week 1 as a low-end QB1. Expect about 260 passing yards and 40+ rushing yards. He should produce at least two touchdowns.

PHI QB Jalen Hurts - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
When Jalen Hurts became the starter in Week 14, he made an immediate fantasy impact. He threw for 300+ yards in two of his starts and also rushed for 106 yards in his first game as a starter. For the four starts, he rushed for 272 yards. Fantasy quarterbacks give bonus value when they can run the ball like Hurts and elevates his overall value. With Carson Wentz shipped out to Indy, there is no doubt Hurts is the starter and will get all the snaps as long as he stays healthy. And the Eagles got him some help drafting DeVonta Smith with their first pick.

Fantasy Downside
Like most young quarterbacks, Hurts will have to make sure he takes care of the ball. He also will have to show more accuracy overall as he completed only 52% of his passes last season. There will be some growing pains as Hurts only had four career starts so basically 2021 will be a continuation of his rookie season.

Bottom Line
The rushing yards make Hurts a low-end QB1. But if you do draft him around the seventh or eighth round, make sure you get a reliable backup in case Hurts does stumble. Projected stats are 4,514 passing yards, 25 passing touchdowns and 19 interceptions. Expect around 700 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns. The big arm Hurts has should make him a legit big-play quarterback.

PHI QB Jalen Hurts - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Washington
After an outstanding fantasy outing back in Week 15, Jalen Hurts came back down to earth last week because of turnovers, but his numbers overall have been very good. Through three games as a starter, Hurts has completed 62 of 113 passes for 847 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions, and he's added 238 yards and a score on the ground.

Hurts will face the Washington Football Team who is ranked sixth in aFPA to quarterbacks. The Washington defense has been putting pressure on quarterbacks so this could affect Hurts who has put up numbers but hasn't been very accurate with his throws in his rookie season.

Start Hurts as a low-end QB1 even with the tough matchup. He has back-to-back 300-yard passing games and the rushing ability makes the difference and elevates his fantasy value.

PHI QB Jalen Hurts - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Dallas
Jalen Hurts had the first big passing game of his young career with 338 yards and three touchdown passes. Add 63 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown and he had one of the best fantasy outings of the week last weekend. Hurts looks comfortable now in Eagles offense and his mobility is a huge asset which is where Carson Wentz had some of his issues.

Hurts will make his first start against the Cowboys who are ranked 17th in aFPA to quarterbacks. This is another opportunity for him to put up huge fantasy numbers which are reflected in his rise in the fantasy rankings.

Start Hurts as a solid QB1 for Week 16. We saw him do it with his legs two weeks ago and both his arm and his legs last week. That makes him a safe play against Dallas and he should help your team to a playoff win this week.

PHI QB Jalen Hurts - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Arizona
Jalen Hurts led the Eagles to a win in his first NFL start and put up some good fantasy numbers while he did. He threw for 167 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 106 yards. His passing percentage wasn't great and he isn't going to throw for 300 yards any time soon, but his overall numbers receive a passing grade.

Hurts faces the Cardinals in his first road start. Arizona is ranked 19th in aFPA to quarterbacks. We expect more of the same this week.

Keep Hurts on the bench for Week 15 as he ranks a high-end QB2. We love the rushing yardage which helps his fantasy stock, but the passing game is still a work in progress.

PHI QB Jalen Hurts - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. New Orleans
Jalen Hurts had his first regular action as head coach Doug Pederson finally benched Carson Wentz. Hurts completed 5-of-14 passes for 109 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He also ran for 29 yards. Pederson has named Hurts the starter for Week 14 so he has been getting reps with the first team this week,

It's not the best matchup to make your first NFL start as the Saints are ranked fourth in aFPA to the quarterback. The good news is the game is at home so Hurts should have some comfort level.

Hurts ranks as a low-end QB2. No reason to pick him up at this point until he shows some numbers that will help you this season which is highly unlikely.
