Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was credited with a bad throw on 26.7 percent of his pass attempts in 2020 - the highest rate for any quarterback with at least 125 pass attempts last season - per Pro Football Reference.
Huddle Up: It is important to note that "bad throws" aren't always the quarterback's fault, but it is a number that needs to come down at least five percent - Lamar Jackson's bad throw percentage in 2020 was 17.6 - for Philadelphia to feel like it might have a long-term answer at quarterback. Nevertheless, Hurts' athleticism should make him a serviceable low-end fantasy QB1 option if the new coaching staff gives him the freedom to run as much as the previous regime did at the end of last season.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts enters his second season as the team's No. 1 quarterback, and general manager Howie Roseman is eager to see what he does with the opportunity. 'Certainly you're judging him off of four NFL starts, in a tough situation with all the injuries that we had,' Roseman said during a recent interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio. 'We want to see him grab the job and kind of run with it, and see what you do over a period of time.'
Huddle Up: Hurts averaged an impressive 27.8 fantasy points per outing over those four starts -- the Eagles' final four games of the 2020 regular season. That stretch included a pair of 300-yard passing games, but his legs also played a major role as he rushed for 272 yards and three TDs during that span. And that rushing element primarily is why Hurts is a low-end QB1 fantasy consideration entering drafts this offseason.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was not named the starter by head coach Nick Sirianni, who said he isn't naming any starters and wants competition at all positions.
Huddle Up: Hurts is the guy. He'll be a risk/reward option as a midrange QB1 in fantasy.

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.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 21 of his 39 passes for 342 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions and rushed nine times for 69, losing one of his two fumbles, in a 37-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16.
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.
