Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers on Monday night. After getting back on track and scoring three total touchdowns in Week 2 against Minnesota, the 25-year-old will look to continue to roll against a solid Tampa Bay defense. The Buccaneers were able to shut down Justin Fields and the Chicago passing attack last week but will struggle to put as much pressure on Hurts. While the Eagles offense has not looked as in sync as they were during their Super Bowl run, it started to click in the second half of last week's Thursday night matchup and should continue to adjust. With a high-scoring floor due to his rushing ability, the Eagles starting quarterback should be considered a top-tier option in Week 3.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed 18-of-23 passes for 193 yards, one touchdown, and one interception while adding 12 carries for 35 yards and two scores during the team's 34-28 win over the Minnesota Vikings. The offense started slow again in this contest but opened up the floodgates in the second half. It was a bounce-back performance for the 25-year-old after scoring just one touchdown against the New England Patriots last week. The former Oklahoma Sooner put up impressive numbers, considering how much yardage was gained on the ground. Philadelphia now has a mini-bye week, getting some much-needed rest for their next prime-time game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, September 25th. It is another plus matchup for Hurts, who should be considered a top-tier option once again in Week 3.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will face the Minnesota Vikings in the team's home opener on Thursday night. The 25-year-old had an underwhelming fantasy performance in Week 1 against a formidable New England defense. However, this is a get-right matchup versus Minnesota for any quarterback. The Vikings had a tough time stopping Baker Mayfield, Mike Evans, and company last week and now have to defend A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, and Dallas Goedert. After failing to score multiple offensive touchdowns, the Eagles offense is in a good spot to bounce back and have plenty of fantasy-relevant players to kick off Week 2. Expect Hurts to take a step forward for fantasy managers compared to last week, as he should be considered a top-tier fantasy option.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed 22-of-33 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown while adding nine carries for 37 yards during the team's 25-20 victory over the New England Patriots. The 25-year-old was under constant duress, being sacked three times, hit five, and losing a fumble deep in the fourth quarter that could have cost Philadelphia the victory. It was not the best fantasy performance for those who took him early in drafts, but we can chalk this one up to a rough night at the office against a great defense and hall-of-fame coach. The former Oklahoma Sooner will have a quick turnaround this upcoming week but gets a juicy matchup against the Minnesota Vikings in the team's home opener. Hurts should be considered a top-tier fantasy option in Week 2.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will open the regular season on the road against the New England Patriots this Sunday. The 25-year-old finished as the QB1 in fantasy points scored per game last season and has a solid matchup in Week 1 of 2023. New England was middle of the pack regarding points allowed to opposing quarterbacks in 2022 but struggled to stop rushing quarterbacks. The team allowed nearly five yards per carry to quarterbacks. Hurts finished as a top-five fantasy option in 10 of his 15 games played last year and should be considered a top-three option this week. No weapons are missing for Philadelphia's matchup Sunday, and Hurts now has a running back who excels as a pass catcher in D'Andre Swift. Play the Eagles starting quarterback with complete confidence as a high-end QB1 to open the fantasy season.
