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.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts will remain the starter in Week 16, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Hurts went off for 338 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 15. He also rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown. The Eagles face the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, and Hurts will be a great QB1.

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.
Huddle Up: Hurts played well in his first career start and is making plays with his arm and legs. He can be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues but can be avoided in most standard leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was confirmed the starter against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Hurts threw for 167 yards (56.7 completion percentage) and one touchdown while running 18 times for 106 yards as well. He'll be a low-end QB1 option.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 17-for-30 passing, finishing with 167 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions Sunday, Dec. 13, vs. the New Orleans Saints in Week 14. He also ran 18 times for 106 yards and lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: In Week 15, Hurts will face the Arizona Cardinals on the road. It was nice to see the rushing success from the rookie, and while he wasn't terrible by any stretch, Hurts is a tough sell in fantasy lineups for playoff leagues. He has utility in two-QB setups or as a wild play in specific DFS contests.

Although Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson did not commit to using QB Jalen Hurts as his starting quarterback beyond Week 14's game versus the New Orleans Saints, multiple player and team sources believe the move could be for the remainder of the season.
Huddle Up: Hurts will have a difficult matchup in his first NFL start versus the New Orleans defense, making him a risky fantasy option even in two-quarterback or superflex leagues. Barring injury or disastrous play, he is likely to hold on to the starting job for the Eagles' final four regular-season games.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 5-of-12 passes for 109 yards, his first NFL touchdown pass and one interception in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers, coming on for the inefficient Carson Wentz.
Huddle Up: Hurts showed off a little more mobility than Wentz, running for 29 yards, although he was sacked three times. Wentz was sacked four times, so that explains a lot about the offensive line play. It's uncertain if this is a temporary or permanent change, so stay tuned.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has rushed seven times for 49 yards and one catch for three yards through six weeks, and head coach Doug Pederson told reporters Monday, Oct. 19, that he 'could see things continuing' in terms of his role increasing in the offense moving forward.
Huddle Up: To be clear, this appears to be more in response to the Eagles having virtually no healthy playmakers left at running back, wide receiver or tight end. Whatever the case, more Hurts doesn't help Carson Wentz's fantasy owners. It's unlikely Hurts sees enough time to be useful in fantasy this year barring an injury to Wentz, however.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is active for Week 2's game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Hurts will serve as the Eagles' backup quarterback this afternoon and could be utilized in a role similar to how the New Orleans Saints use QB/WR Taysom Hill on offense. However, he should not be started in any fantasy format, especially since it is uncertain if how many offensive snaps (if any) he will receive versus the Rams. Last week's backup quarterback for Philadelphia, Nate Sudfeld, was declared inactive.
