Jalen Hurts News
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts didn't do much with his arm in Week 2, but saved his fantasy day with a decent rushing performance. Hurts completed just 12 passes on 23 attempts, for 190 scoreless yards. He was able to be a force on the ground though, running the ball 10 times for 82 yards and a touchdown. His score came on a one-yard plunge near the end of the fourth quarter of a 17-11 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

The sophomore quarterback's first score was on an 18-yard pass to rookie DeVonta Smith. The second came on a nine yard strike to Dallas Goedert, and the third was a 23-yard score to fellow sophomore and fellow Jalen, Jalen Reagor. Hurts should be a solid fantasy quarterback all season, even if some growing pains strike on the field.
