Trust = spike production for that player


Jalen Hurts: After everyone cried wolf at Hurts for stacking late-game production, he has still put together three more QB1 scoring weeks over the past four games with the Eagles calling 32 pass plays for 82 rushing plays in the second half over that span since he offers so much value with his legs.

Hurts now has 10 QB1 scoring weeks on the year, three more than the next closest player. Small grain of salt for not having a bye yet, but Hurts has just one game this year in which he failed to be a top-12 scorer. 

Hurts is also a huge reason why the Eagles are running the ball so effectively and were able to still run the ball against a strong New Orleans defense a week ago. Over this four-game hot stretch of running the rock, the Eagles lead the NFL with 65 rush attempts stemming from read options. The next closest team over that span has 26 such carries. Hurts himself has 18 read-option runs over that span, second in the NFL behind Jordan Howard, which Hurts has turned into 104 rushing yards and a touchdown. 

Hurts does still only have 33.6 passing points over the past four weeks, but last week was the first game he has over that span with a rushing touchdown to anchor his rushing yardage. With his rushing floor remaining so high, Hurts is a floor-based QB1 with built-in upside if he reaches the end zone on the ground.
