Jalen Hurts A Top Option In Prime Time Matchup

Thursday, September 21, 9:38 AM

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.

Trevor Lawrence Looks to Bounce Back Against Lowly Texans

Wednesday, September 20, 9:39 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence draws an easier matchup this week, taking on the Houston Texans at home. The third-year struggled mightily last Sunday against Kansas City in a performance that he described as "kind of embarrassing." Lawrence put up 216 yards and zero scores, leading to a 9.24 fantasy point output for the day. The Texans are up next, and while they are usually a great matchup for any fantasy asset, DeMeco Ryans' defense has held Lamar Jackson and the Colts QB duo to an average of 198 passing yards through two weeks. Still, with the number of weapons that Lawrence has at his disposal and a 26.5 team-implied total, expect a solid bounce back for the former Clemson star. He's a back-end QB1 for Week 3.
