Quarterback

Jalen Hurts: Hurts completed a season-low 58.1% of his passes for 200 yards on Sunday, and it still did not matter for fantasy as he scored 34.5 points.

Hurts threw three touchdown passes and added another two on the ground, giving him 11 rushing touchdowns on the year.

The full-game stats do not do Hurts justice, however.

Hurts was just 4-of-11 (36.4%) for 33 yards (3.0 Y/A) with an interception in the first half on Sunday, but then caught fire after the break, completing 14-of-20 passes (70.0%) for 167 yards (8.3 Y/A) with three touchdowns and zero interceptions in the second half and overtime.

Hurts has now been a QB1 scorer in 10 straight games and a top-five scorer in eight of those weeks.

That includes games against the Jets, Cowboys, and Chiefs, three of the top seven teams in passing points allowed per game to quarterbacks.

With his rushing ability and touchdown equity, Hurts always has a path to QB1 output.

He threw for 6.2 Y/A with three interceptions against the Jets and was the QB4.

He had 150 passing yards and zero passing touchdowns against the Chiefs and was QB10.

This week, Hurts gets another front-end defense as San Francisco ranks fifth in passing points allowed per game (10.6).

When these teams played in the postseason a year ago, Hurts completed 15-of-25 passes for 121 yards with zero touchdowns, rushing 11 times for 39 yards and a touchdown.

The Eagles were not forced to press the issue given the San Francisco quarterback situation in that game, and Hurts threw just six passes in the second half.
