C.J. Beathard Looks Like The QB2 For Jacksonville

Sunday, August 27, 3:07 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback C.J. Beathard went 8-for-10 for 134 yards, a touchdown, and a near-perfect passer rating of 152.1 in Saturday's 31-18 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins. The vet came into camp with a leg up on rookie Nathan Rourke for the QB2 spot behind Trevor Lawrence, but the latter has been applying some pressure with his play through two games. Beathard was the second QB to take over after Lawrence in this one, leading three consecutive scoring drives to close out the first half. The performance was highlighted by a 74-yard touchdown strike to sophomore wide receiver Tim Jones, who broke open on the left side of the field and cruised in untouched for the score. Rourke quarterbacked the entire second half of the game, which saw the Jaguars put up two more touchdowns. Still, the Ohio native finished with a measly 74 passing yards on only six attempts, as Jacksonville opted to go with a more ground-heavy attack. At this point, Beathard has held onto his QB2 position but is still firmly off the fantasy radar unless something happens to Lawrence.

Jalen Hurts Tallies 353 Yards In Overtime Victory

Sunday, October 1, 8:13 PM

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts completed 25 of 37 passes for 319 yards and two touchdowns while adding nine carries for 34 yards during the team's 34-31 overtime victory over the Washington Commanders. It was the 25-year-old's best game of the season as a passer, and he helped lead the Eagles to a victory with an underwhelming performance from their defense. This was another top-10 performance for fantasy purposes, even if Hurts did not add much to his total on the ground. The fourth-year quarterback is matchup-proof and will be a must-start next week against the Los Angeles Rams, even though they are one of the top defenses against fantasy quarterbacks through four weeks.
