25-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Philadelphia Eagles
2024 Fantasy Outlook
Hurts isn’t necessarily a prolific passer -- 13th in TDs last season, 14th in yards -- but the Tush Push cheat code makes him an easy fantasy bet. After ranking third among QBs in 2022 fantasy scoring, Hurts moved up to second last season behind 15 rushing touchdowns, an NFL record for QBs later tied by Josh Allen. Hurts led quarterbacks with 16 goal-line carries and scored 11 touchdowns on QB sneaks. The Tush Push also keeps drives alive. Hurts converted 24 of 27 QB sneaks on third-and-short and fourth down last season, giving him more fantasy opportunities. Passing wise, Hurts completed 65.4 percent of attempts even as his average target depth jumped to 8.7, fourth deepest in the league. His YPA dropped from 8.0 to 7.2, because he was a little less accurate on attempts of 20-plus yards and his receivers didn’t gobble up as many yards after the catch. In 2022, 50.8 percent of Hurts’ yards came via YAC, compared to only 44.9 percent last season. That might matter for the Eagles, but in fantasy it's of little concern given his three straight seasons with double-digit rushing TDs and more than 600 yards. The addition of running back Saquon Barkley likely will sap some goal-line carries, and center Jason Kelce’s retirement is a consideration (he was the tip of the Tush Push spear), but penciling in Hurts for double-digit rushing scores isn’t wish-casting. As long as his rushing production remains strong, Hurts has a shot at finishing as the top fantasy QB even if his passing never reaches higher levels. Read Past Outlooks

Learning another new offense
QBPhiladelphia Eagles
June 7, 2024
Hurts said the offense he's learning under new coordinator Kellen Moore is "probably 95 percent" new, Brooks Kubena of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Hurts will work with his fifth playcaller in as many pro seasons, having gone from Doug Pederson to Nick Sirianni to Shane Steichen to Brian Johnson to Moore. It sounds like this will be the biggest change to the Eagles' offense since 2021, when Sirianni replaced Pederson as the head coach and the team drafted WR DeVonta Smith in the first round. The unit will have two new starters this season, with RB Saquon Barkley signed to replace D'Andre Swift (Bears) and the right guard job up for grabs with Cam Jurgens shifting over to center to replace a retired Jason Kelce. The new offense figures to entail a lot more pre-snap motion, something the Eagles used on a league-low 10.9 percent of plays last season (the Chargers ranked eighth under Moore at 25.9 percent).

A MVP-caliber season and a run to the Super Bowl were perhaps surprising, but Hurts finishing as the No. 3 fantasy quarterback last year should not have been shocking. He made tremendous strides with his arm between Years 1 and 2 as a starter, and he'd always been a threat with his legs. A.J. Brown joined DeVonta Smith and TE Dallas Goedert to help Hurts become one of the NFL's best passers. He led the league in on-target percentage (80.5) and completion percentage (72.5) from the pocket and finished second in TD/INT ratio at 20/4. Overall, his completion rate increased by more than five points to 66.5 percent (it was 52.9 as a rookie in 2020), his six interceptions were second fewest among QBs with at least 350 attempts and he finished third in YPA (8.0). Hurts’ running game gives him a solid fantasy floor -- he led the league in designed runs by a quarterback last season and was fourth in scramble yards. While nearly 40 percent of those designed runs were QB sneaks, 14 came at the goal line, which helped him score 13 rushing TDs, second most in NFL history by a quarterback. It’s possible Hurts’ goal-line attempts regress, but the league decided against outlawing the Eagles’ infamous “tush push" and longer-distance scores are also in play after back-to-back seasons with more than 750 rushing yards. Given that rushing production, Hurts can challenge for QB1 status even if he isn't quite on Patrick Mahomes' level as a passer and isn't likely to match Josh Allen's total volume.
Hurts made laudable improvements in accuracy last season, but it didn’t exactly turn him into a good passer. He increased his on-target rate by nearly 20 percentage points compared to 2020 (55.4 to 73.8 percent) but finished only 26th in the league in completion percentage (61.3). Perhaps most concerning, Hurts threw five interceptions and only two TDs on attempts 20-plus yards downfield, magnifying the pre-draft concerns about his arm strength. Despite that, he finished QB9 in fantasy thanks to incredible rushing production. He led quarterbacks in rushing yards (784) and became the ninth QB all-time with double-digit TDs on the ground. His rushing output, including a league-high 50 scrambles, likely will regress a bit this season, and for his passing to pick up the slack he probably needs more attempts. Hurts ranked 29th last season with 28.8 attempts per game, as the Eagles finished last in passing percentage (48.8) following their mid-year switch to a run-heavy offense. The only quality wideout was rookie DeVonta Smith, so Hurts largely relied on Dallas Goedert (76 targets) and his running backs (105 targets). The Eagles responded by trading for A.J. Brown on draft day, giving Hurts a game-changing No. 1 receiver to pair with Smith and Goedert. If Hurts throws more passes and continues to improve his accuracy with the help of an improved receiving corps, he can become a top fantasy QB even if he runs a bit less than last year.
Hurts started the final four games last season, displacing Carson Wentz and causing a rift between owner and coach that eventually led to the latter's dismissal. Out of college, the knock on Hurts, the Eagles' second-round pick last year, was his accuracy and arm strength. He did little to prove critics wrong. Among the 40 QBs with at least 140 attempts, Hurts ranked last in completion percentage (52.0) — lowest in the league since 2017. He didn't fare well throwing deep either. On attempts of at least 20 yards, only 36.4 percent were on target (34th of 38, min. 20 attempts). Part of the problem was an utter lack of playmakers in the Eagles offense. The leading receiver was the uninspiring Greg Ward, while tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert each missed five games. And compared to Wentz, Hurts was better. Hurts' bad-pass percentage was 20.9, while Wentz posted a league-high 28.4 percent; his YPA was 7.2 to Wentz's 6.0. Hurts also showed reason for optimism with his rushing. Fast and elusive, he averaged 68 rushing yards in his four starts, a 1,000-yard season pace. The Eagles cleared the way for Hurts this offseason by trading Wentz. They then drafted WR DeVonta Smith with the 10th overall pick, and last year's first-round pick, Jalen Reagor, is healthy after an injury-plagued rookie season. A healthy year from Goedert would go a long way too. Former Colts OC Nick Sirianni is the new head coach, while the new offensive coordinator is Shane Steichen, who oversaw Justin Herbert's emergence last season with the Chargers. That bodes well for Hurts, but he needs his young receivers to blossom.
The Eagles surprisingly made Hurts their second-round pick in this year's draft despite Carson Wentz cemented as the starter. But Wentz is injury prone having missed eight games in four seasons (and was knocked out of the Eagles' wild card game last year), so it wouldn't surprise if the 6-1 Hurts gets some time under center this season. In the meantime, he can continue to develop as a passer, as he already has the mobility to kill defenses on the run. Hurts, who ran a 4.59 40 at the combine (second fastest among QBs), set a school record as a freshman at Alabama with 954 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. As a grad-school transfer to Oklahoma last season, he was a Heisman Trophy finalist after rushing for 1,298 yards and 20 touchdowns. The knock on Hurts was his accuracy and arm strength, but he completed 69.7 percent of his passes last season (7th in nation) with 32 TDs and eight INTs and then wowed scouts at the combine with his downfield passing. Still, if Wentz stays healthy, he won't see much action, other than perhaps a Taysom Hill-like role. If Wentz gets injured, though, Hurts can at least use his legs to extend plays. That has value.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Leading motion-heavy offense in '24
QBPhiladelphia Eagles
June 6, 2024
Hurts will be leading an offense in 2024 that will feature much more motion than previous iterations, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
McManus notes it's evident Hurts and his pass catchers are still firmly in the midst of adjusting to the intricacies of new coordinator Kellen Moore's system, with timing very inconsistent during OTAs and minicamp. However, one change that is already evident is the sharp increase in motion plays after Philadelphia ranked last in the NFL in pre-snap motion in 2023. Head coach Nick Sirianni is delegating the majority of offensive responsibility to Moore after conceding that his own system had grown stale by the end of last season.
