Jalen Hurts News
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (foot) had 258 yards and a touchdown on 23-for-43 passing while adding eight carries for 39 yards during the Wild Card round loss to the Buccaneers. He also threw two interceptions, and even worse, he was observed wearing a walking boot during a post-game interview. The 23-year-old stated he's been dealing with the undisclosed ailment for quite some time, and he isn't sure if he will have to undergo surgery during the offseason. Nonetheless, despite his efficient play this year, Hurts doesn't have a firm grasp on the team's starting job for the 2021-22 campaign, so this is undoubtedly a situation to monitor moving ahead as if it could impact his draft stock.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (ankle) was able to practice in full all week and was removed from the final injury report for the wild-card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Hurts threw for only 3,144 yards in his second season, which ranked 21st in the NFL, but he lead the league with 782 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns in 15 games played.

But the 23-year-old looks to be nearing full strength in time for the wild-card matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Hurts hasn't gone over 300 yards passing in a game since Week 4 and the Eagles have been the best rushing offense all year (159.7 yards per game), but there is plenty of upside for the second-year QB this weekend against a Bucs defense that has allowed the eighth-most fantasy points per game to QBs this year. Hurts' rushing ability gives him considerable upside at his $6,100 DraftKings salary, which ranks eighth among QBs during wild-card weekend.
Jalen Hurts started and finished just three games as a rookie in 2020, but it was enough of a sample size to showcase his ability as a runner. He averaged 79.3 yards on 12.7 rushing attempts per game in those three games. He also threw for 282.3...
