Jalen Hurts Says 95% Of Offense This Year Is New

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts said that "95 percent" of the offense being installed for the 2024 season is new under new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore after the team's 1-6 finish last year. Head coach Nick Sirianni said Moore had previously described the offense as a hybrid scheme that incorporates concepts from Sirianni's and Moore's previous systems. The players are still adjusting to the new details, as the timing between Hurts and his playmakers has been hit or miss during offseason workouts. One noticeable change is the jump in motion plays after the Eagles were last in pre-snap motion in 2023. It's possible Hurts and the Eagles offense is still adjusting to Moore's play-calling early on in 2024, but it will be interesting to see how much everything changes. Regardless of the new offense, Hurts is a top-flight QB1 in fantasy in a loaded offense.

Jalen Hurts Struggles Without Top Target

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed 25 of 35 passes for 250 yards and one touchdown, adding one carry for five yards during the team's 9-32 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 25-year-old didn't make many mistakes but was unable to put the team into scoring range consistently without A.J. Brown (knee). Over half of Hurts' passing yards went to DeVonta Smith. The Eagles' offense was in shambles at the end of the year and could not get things turned around by the start of the playoffs. There are bound to be plenty of changes to the coaching staff and roster come September, but Hurts will remain a top-five fantasy quarterback because when he is healthy and has his full complement of weapons, he is as good as any other.

Jalen Hurts Cleared For Monday

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (finger) doesn't have an injury designation ahead of Monday's Wild-Card contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The star signal-caller exited early during the regular season finale due to dislocated middle finger. He was limited in practice to start the week, but was able to get in back-to-back full practice sessions to close out the practice week. It doesn't sound like Hurts is going to be limited at all during Monday's contest. He'll be without star wideout A.J. Brown (knee) for this game. That means, DeVonta Smith, Julio Jones, and Dallas Goedert will need to step up in the receiving game. Hurts will be a high-priced, but solid DFS option for this weekend's slate.

Jalen Hurts A Risky Option During Wild-Card Weekend

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will go on the road to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday during the first week of the NFL playoffs. The 25-year-old did suffer a finger injury during last week's loss to the New York Giants that looked pretty gruesome, but he was a full participant in practice on Friday and was throwing the ball. Hurts had a rough five-week stretch to end the season but salvaged a few games due to scoring rushing touchdowns. With that said, he now has to go on the road to take on a Tampa Bay defense that has been a favorable matchup for quarterbacks this past regular season. The only issue is the potential loss of star receiver A.J. Brown (knee), who has yet to return to practice. Due to his high price point, Hurts is a risky option in DFS.

Jalen Hurts Practices In Full Friday

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (finger) was a full participant in practice on Friday, a day after he was limited on Thursday. Hurts dislocated the middle finger on his throwing hand in the Week 18 loss to the New York Giants, but X-rays came back negative and the 25-year-old should be good to go for Monday night's wild-card playoff game in Tampa against the Buccaneers. Hurts' return to a full practice should ease anyone's concerns that he might not have been ready to play this weekend, but he could still be somewhat compromised with his throwing on Monday night. Add in the fact that top wideout A.J. Brown (knee) is looking questionable to play, and the QB2 in fantasy during the regular season is looking a bit shaky as a high-priced QB option in DFS for the wild-card slate.

Jalen Hurts Does Very Little Throwing Thursday

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (finger) did not throw the ball much at all, if at all, during the team's practice on Thursday, according to a source. It's a tough injury for Hurts, who dislocated the middle finger on his right throwing hand in the Week 18 loss to the New York Giants. Hopefully he will be able to throw more before heading to Tampa on Sunday to prepare to face the Buccaneers in the wild-card playoff game on Monday night. The 25-year-old was the QB2 in overall fantasy points during the regular season, behind only Josh Allen, but he's trending toward being a pretty shaky DFS play during wild-card weekend, especially at such a high price point. On top of Hurts' own injury, his top two wideouts -- A.J. Brown (knee) and DeVonta Smith (ankle) -- are also beat up and could be playing at less than 100 percent.

Jan 12, 2024 12:05 PM EST


Jalen Hurts Present For Thursday's Practice

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (finger) was present at Thursday's practice and was wearing a glove on his injured throwing hand. Hurts suffered a grotesque dislocation of the middle finger on his right hand in the Week 18 regular season finale loss to the New York Giants but returned to the game. But X-rays were negative for any fractures, and the 25-year-old is expected to play on Monday for the wild-card playoff game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Hurts was a high-end QB1 for fantasy managers again in 2023, although he carries plenty of bust potential into the first round of the playoffs because of his finger injury and with injuries to his top two wideouts in A.J. Brown (knee) and DeVonta Smith (ankle). Hurts is the second-most expensive fantasy signal-caller on DraftKings, behind only Josh Allen.

Jan 11, 2024 3:21 PM EST


No Fractures In Jalen Hurts' Finger

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (finger) underwent X-rays that showed no fracture in the middle finger on his throwing hand that he dislocated in the Week 18 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday, according to sources. Hurts said he's taking it day by day and will have an extra day to heal up with the Eagles facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road on wild-card weekend next Monday night. The 25-year-old went just 7-for-16 for 55 yards and an interception before leaving the game for good. Hurts and the Eagles offense are slumping heading into the postseason. Although he should be good to go to play against Tampa next Monday night, he could be without receiver DeVonta Smith (ankle). Hurts' and the Eagles' offense's stock are down, but he should still be considered a top-five QB option for DFS lineups against a Bucs defense that was a top-10 matchup for QBs during the regular season.

Jalen Hurts Suffers Finger Injury, Exits Early In Blowout Loss

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (finger) completed seven of 16 passes for 55 yards and an interception and added two carries for four yards in the team's 27-10 loss to the New York Giants. The 25-year-old was already without receiver DeVonta Smith (ankle) and running back D'Andre Swift (illness) before losing wideout A.J. Brown (knee) early in this contest. To top it all off, the Giants sent a constant blitz, resulting in Hurts smacking his hand on a linebacker's helmet. On the sideline after the play, his middle finger was bent inward, yet he still went out on the next series and continued to throw. The Eagles pulled him soon after with the game out of reach. Philadelphia's offense is completely lost at the moment and they will have to try and figure it out and move past these injuries next week when they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road.

Jalen Hurts Looks To End Season On A High Note

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will go on the road to take on the New York Giants in Week 18. The 25-year-old threw three touchdowns last week in a losing effort to the Arizona Cardinals but will be without No. 2 wide receiver DeVonta Smith (ankle), who was injured toward the end of the game. Even without Smith, Hurts will be a top-tier fantasy option for those playing in redraft leagues and daily, considering the likes of Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson are sitting out this weekend. Hurts threw for over 300 yards and tallied two touchdowns two weeks ago in their first meeting against the Giants in Week 16. Consider the Eagles' starting quarterback a top-five fantasy option in the season finale.

Jalen Hurts Throws Three Touchdowns In Week 17 Loss

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed 18 of 23 passes for 167 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception while adding eight carries for 25 yards during the team's 35-31 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The 25-year-old played a solid game but was benefited by short fields in the first half, hence the low passing yardage total. The offense still was not in synch, electing to throw a ton in the first half against a defense that allowed over 200 yards on the ground last week. With DeVonta Smith (knee) seen in a walking boot after the game and the Giants on deck, Hurts will remain a QB1 in Week 18 but could have his ceiling capped without one of his top weapons.

Jalen Hurts A Top Three Option Against Cardinals

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will face off against the Arizona Cardinals during the Eagles final home game of the regular season in Week 17. The 25-year-old got back on track for fantasy managers last week after a couple of rough outings and now gets the chance to face an Arizona defense that has struggled to stop opposing passers. The Cardinals allow the ninth-most fantasy points to the quarterback position, are tied for the fourth-most passing touchdowns allowed, and are tied for the fifth-most rushing touchdowns allowed to the position. Arizona is missing plenty of pieces on both sides of the ball at this point and is well out of playoff contention. Philadelphia could elect to ride running backs D'Andre Swift and Kenneth Gainwell in this one, but Hurts should be considered a locked-in top-three option at the quarterback position during many manager's fantasy football championships.

Jalen Hurts Scores Twice In Win Over Giants

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed 24 of 38 passes for 301 yards, one touchdown, and one interception while adding 34 yards on eight carries and an additional score during the team's 33-25 win over the New York Giants. The 25-year-old threw for over 300 yards for the first time since Week 8 and had a solid performance overall. Things got a bit rocky in the third quarter when Hurts started to hyper-target star receiver A.J. Brown, who had seen just one catch in the first half. The Eagles' signal caller then threw an interception on a pass to Dallas Goedert, who fell down on his route and left the defender open for an easy pick-six. Outside of this play, Hurts had a solid bounce-back performance after a rough two-game stretch. With the Arizona Cardinals on deck, Hurts will remain a top-three option heading into fantasy football championships next week.

Dec 25, 2023 8:07 PM EST


Jalen Hurts A Top Fantasy Option In Week 16

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts struggled passing the ball in Week 15 as he threw two interceptions and no touchdowns, but he offset that with two rushing touchdowns in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He will look to bounce back against the New York Giants at home in Week 16. The Giants have been middle-of-the-pack against QBs in 2023 as they are allowing the 17th-most fantasy points per game to the position. Hurts will be a top-three fantasy quarterback heading into Week 16.

Dec 24, 2023 8:07 AM EST


Jalen Hurts Throws Two Interceptions In Third-Straight Loss

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed 17 of 31 passes for 143 yards and two interceptions, adding 13 carries for 82 yards and two rushing touchdowns during the team's 17-20 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. While the 25-year-old was playing at less than 100% due to an illness, he threw two interceptions on crucial drives toward the end of the game that sealed the Eagle's fate. It can not get much worse for Philadelphia as a whole right now, but thankfully for them, the remaining schedule consists of two games against the New York Giants and a game against a struggling Arizona Cardinals. Hurts will remain a locked-in QB1 for fantasy managers that advanced to the second round of their playoffs next week against the Giants.

Dec 19, 2023 8:27 AM EST


Jalen Hurts Will Be Active On Monday Night

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (illness) is at Lumen Field in Seattle and will be active to start on Monday night against the Seahawks, according to a source. Hurts began feeling ill on Thursday of last week and didn't practice on Saturday, prompting the Eagles to add him to the injury report with a questionable tag for Monday's game. The 25-year-old flew separately to Seattle to try and avoid getting anyone else on the team sick. He's probably not going to be 100 percent for Monday's game, but fantasy managers that rolled the dice on Hurts will be riding with him to close out Week 15 action. Hurts is hoping to bounce back on Monday after two straight losses in which he only had two touchdowns (one throwing, one rushing).

Dec 18, 2023 5:59 PM EST


Jalen Hurts Will Attempt To Play Monday Night

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (illness) is definitely going to try and play on Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. Hurts had the normal fever, chills and body aches on Sunday, which is why the team downgraded him to questionable for Week 15, but the hope is he's good to go on Monday night. The 25-year-old started feeling ill on Thursday and has been under the weather since, but it sounds like he'll give it a go in Seattle. Hurts probably isn't going to be 100 percent, but if you rolled the dice and stuck with him in fantasy this week, you'll have to just cross your fingers and hope he plays and performs admirably. In a worst-case scenario, backup Marcus Mariota could be added as a last-second fill-in for fantasy managers if Hurts is ruled out 90 minutes before kickoff.

Dec 18, 2023 12:01 PM EST


Jalen Hurts Downgraded To Questionable

Updating a previous report, the Philadelphia Eagles are downgrading quarterback Jalen Hurts (illness) to questionable for Monday night's game against the Seattle Seahawks after his sickness worsened overnight, according to a source. Hurts is still harboring hopes of playing, though, and is traveling to Seattle separately from the team to try and avoid getting anyone else sick. The 25-year-old was a late addition to Philly's Week 15 injury report after he missed Saturday's practice with the illness, but it was reported then that he would play on Monday. It sounds a bit more iffy now that he'll suit up, which is terrible news for fantasy managers relying on him as a high-end QB1 in a great matchup. Grab Marcus Mariota as an insurance policy if you plan on waiting until Monday to see if Hurts is active.

Jalen Hurts Will Play Monday Night

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (illness), who was added to the Week 15 injury report on Saturday due to an illness, will play on Monday night versus the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source. Hurts was under the weather and sat out of Saturday's practice session, but it's not going to keep him from suiting up in Week 15 as the Eagles look to snap their first two-game losing streak since 2021. The 25-year-old signal-caller only has two touchdowns (one passing, one rushing) in the last two games, but he'll have a nice bounce-back matchup against the Seahawks, albeit on the road in a tough environment. Seattle's pass defense ranks 25th in the NFL and is allowing 243.6 passing yards per game, so Hurts should absolutely be locked into all starting fantasy lineups as a high-end QB1.

Dec 17, 2023 11:05 AM EST


Jalen Hurts Expected To Play Despite Illness

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (illness) is not practicing on Saturday due to an illness, but he will still travel with the team to Seattle and is expected to play on Monday night against the Seahawks. Hurts' illness is something to keep an eye on and the 25-year-old might not be 100 percent to close out Week 15 action, but he's expected to play and should remain in all starting fantasy lineups in what is the first round of the playoffs in most fantasy leagues. During Philly's two-game losing streak, Hurts has gone 44-for-72 (61.11%) for 495 passing yards, only one touchdown pass and no interceptions, adding 50 rushing yards on 12 attempts while adding a rushing score. Philly's offense has sputtered lately, but they'll have a good opportunity to bounce back on Monday against a suspect Seattle secondary.
