Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has been prioritized this offseason by owner Jeffrey Lurie. The team isn't unanimous on Hurts as the starter, but Lurie wants the team to build around him for next season instead of creating competition.
Huddle Up: Hurts played like a midrange QB1 last year, but there are a lot of moving pieces around him. He'll be a boom-or-bust option at the position in fantasy.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts had nine fumbles in 2020, including six in four games as a starter.
Huddle Up: To be fair, dual-threat quarterbacks like Kyler Murray, Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen were also among the players with nine or more fumbles, but Hurts amassed his total in significantly fewer snaps. Likely Philadelphia's starter in 2021, it is going to become a problem if Hurts continues to fumble at his current clip. For now, he is a high-upside QB2 because of his running ability.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job, but the team plans to add another quarterback to compete with Hurts during training camp.
Huddle Up: Hurts played well after taking over the job and should hold on to the job if he has a solid training camp. He will be at least a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is the team's projected 2021 starter with the trade of Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Feb. 18.
Huddle Up: Hurts certainly had his late-season moments taking over as a rookie last year with eight total TDs, including three rushing, in four starts. And unless the Eagles pursue another starting-caliber QB this offseason via free agency, trade or the draft, it'll be Hurts' show from Day 1 in 2021. Value him as a mid-level QB2 with ample upside for now.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts plans to work out some of the younger receivers next month, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Hurts finished the season as the starting quarterback and likely will keep that role if the team trades Carson Wentz this offseason. He has added fantasy value and should be at least a high-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2021 if he is a starter.

Huddle Up: The three turnovers weren't ideal, but Hurts topped 300 yards passing for the second game in a row and had more than 60 rushing yards for a third consecutive game. He's a QB1 heading in the final week of the regular season.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 24 of his 44 passes for 338 yards and three touchdowns and rushed 11 times for 63 yards and a score in a 33-26 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Hurts made plays with his arm and his legs, and while two starts isn't a big sample size, his rushing ability alone gives him QB1 upside.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is expected to remain the starting quarterback for the Eagles for the rest of the season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
