Jalen Hurts Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (illness) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Seahawks. He was so sick on Sunday that his status for this one was reportedly in real doubt. It’s possible that the illness is a factor in this one. But if you waited on Hurts, get him in your lineup.

The Eagles expect QB Jalen Hurts (illness) to be able to play vs. the Seahawks on Monday night, according to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer. We'd keep Hurts in Week 15 fantasy lineups in most cases, while rostering backup QB Marcus Mariota as insurance.

The Eagles have added QB Jalen Hurts to the injury report as questionable for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. The change reportedly came after Hurts woke up sicker than expected Sunday morning. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Hurts is traveling separately from the team, and we'll have to see Monday whether he's able to play. If you're counting on Hurts, try to stash backup QB Marcus Mariota now. If that's not an option and you'd be left with no QB if Hurts is inactive, then you'll have to decide whether to take that risk. Players don't usually go inactive for illness, so we'd guess that Hurts will play. But it's only a guess at this point.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts headed to the locker room during the second half of Sunday's game vs. the 49ers for a concussion check. We'll update his status as soon as we know more. QB Marcus Mariota is Philly's backup.

Update: Hurts returned in the fourth quarter.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 14 of 22 passes for 150 yards with 1 INT in Week 11’s win vs. the Chiefs. Things for scary for fantasy managers on Monday night as Hurts had only completed 5 attempts for 46 yards with just 3 rushing yards to his name through the first two quarters of action. Fortunately, things turned around, and he scored 2 rushing TDs in the second half to salvage his day. Let this be a reminder that Hurts should still be thought of as a high-end QB1 on a weekly basis as long as he’s able to maintain value as a runner. Next week, the Eagles will square off at home vs. the Bills.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was already playing through a left-knee injury that has him in a brace. He took another shot to the knee in the first half of Sunday's win over the Cowboys that briefly hobbled the QB. But Hurts didn't miss any time. He was efficient on low passing volume, completing 17 of 23 passes (73.9%) for 207 yards (9.0 per attempt) and 2 TDs. Hurts found WRs A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith for scores. He also pushed in a score from 1-yard out amid 36 rushing yards on 10 carries. A Week 10 bye can only help Hurts gear up for a challenging final stretch of opponents.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts delivered a huge fantasy line in Week 8 with 319 yards, 4 TDs, and 1 turnover. Hurts added just 6 rushing yards on 4 attempts – one of which included a fumble at the goal line. We also learned earlier in the day (per insider Jay Glazer) that Hurts has played through a left knee bruise. Perhaps that’ll keep the rush volume low in the short-term. But note that Hurts wasn’t even listed on Philly’s injury report. With a healthy group of pass-catchers, the 25-year-old will retain a top-3 ceiling next week vs. Dallas.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is not listed on the Week 8 injury report. He appeared to be playing through a knee injury in last week’s win over Miami but will be out there for Sunday’s plus matchup vs. the Commanders.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni said Wednesday that he expects QB Jalen Hurts (knee) to play vs. the Commanders this weekend. "We’re confident that he’ll be ready to go," Sirianni said. "We anticipate him to go. That doesn’t mean it’s easy. We’ll see. … I think he’s feeling better. We’re hopeful that he’ll (have) no limitations on Sunday.” Hurts threw it just fine in the Week 7 win over Miami but looked limited as a runner. It could be a similar story this weekend. We'll keep you updated on his health.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts played the second half of Sunday night's win over the Dolphins with a brace on his left leg. ESPN's Tim McManus reports that it's a knee issue. "I'll be fine," Hurts said afterward. Asked whether it will impact him going forward, he said, "I hope not." We'll watch for more on the knee, but we'll also continue playing Hurts when active. He threw for 136 yards and a TD in that second half.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 23 of 31 passes for 279 yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT in Week 7’s win vs. the Dolphins. He also added 21 rushing yards with a ground score on 11 carries in the contest. Hurts has now recorded at least 19 fantasy points in 4-point per passing TD leagues in six of seven games in 2023. Expect Hurts to return high-end QB1 numbers again in Week 8 vs. the Commanders.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts threw for 280 yards and led the team in rushing Sunday against the Jets. But he also arguably was most to blame for Philly's first loss. Hurts tossed 3 INTs in the game, his second multi-INT game of the season. Hurts did also throw for a TD and run for a score, totaling 47 yards on the ground. That all combined to save a decent fantasy day, third-best among QBs with two games to go. It's enough to make us shrug off the poor real-life play for Hurts, especially given that it came against a good defense. He'll find more favorable spots against the Dolphins and Commanders the next two weeks.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts threw for 303 yards, 1 TD, and an INT in Sunday's win over the Rams. He added 72 yards and a goal-line TD for a strong fantasy outing. It marked Hurts' second straight game with 300+ passing yards and his third game among the past four with at least one rushing score. Hurts visits the Jets in Week 6 before meetings with the Dolphins, Commanders (rematch), and Cowboys.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts racked up 319 yards and 2 TDs passing in Sunday's OT win over the Commanders. He found WR A.J. Brown for both scores, from 28 and 59 yards out. Brown and DeVonta Smith combined to draw targets on 59.5% of Hurts' pass attempts. They also accounted for 79.3% of the team's receiving yards. TE Dallas Goedert managed just 2 receptions for 25 yards among 4 targets. RB D'Andre Swift ranked third on the team with 4 receptions on 4 targets.

Outside of two deep balls to WR DeVonta Smith, Eagles QB Jalen Hurts struggled to get much going through the air in Thursday night’s win over the Vikings. He finished with 193 yards, one TD, and one INT on 18-of-23 passing. But Hurts added 35 yards and two TDs on the ground to turn in a big fantasy day. Both of those scores came on the evidently unstoppable tush-push play from the Minnesota one-yard line. Philly’s passing game has yet to click through two weeks. But there’s too much talent for it not to get going soon. In the meantime, Hurts’ rushing production will buoy his fantasy value. There’s nothing scary on Hurts’ schedule until a Week 6 matchup vs. the Jets.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts threw for just 170 yards and ran for 37 in Sunday's win over the Patriots. His lone TD came on a 5-yard, first-quarter pass to WR DeVonta Smith. Hurts lost a fumble on a run and took 3 sacks. It was a meek fantasy performance for a top QB, but there's nothing to worry about here. We'd bet on New England's defense ranking among the best in the league this year. Hurts gets a much more favorable matchup at home against the Vikings in Week 2.

In case you were wondering about how Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has fared in training camp so far, here's an update from The Athletic's Bo Wulf: "Hurts seems to have picked up where he left off, which just so happened to be playing the best game of his life on the biggest stage. ... There’s no doubt he’s been more consistent than ever over the first week-plus of camp." Hurts finished eighth among QBs in fantasy points in his first full season as starter in 2021 and then climbed to third last year. He's a safe bet for top-five production in 2023, with the upside to lead all QBs in fantasy points.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert enters year six looking to play a full season for the first time since 2018. Goedert missed five games with a small fracture in his shoulder last year. Still, he remained a big part of Philly’s passing game. Including the playoffs, he posted a 19.9% target share that only five TEs beat. He finished TE5 in fantasy points per game. While he remains the No. 3 target in a low-volume pass offense, Goedert’s proven highly efficient throughout his career. In fact, he paces all pass catchers in yards per target (10.6) over the past two seasons. The Eagles lost OC Shane Steichen to the Colts, but this unit shouldn’t change much following the promotion of QB coach Brian Johnson. Goedert, 28, profiles as a mid-level fantasy starter in our TE rankings.

The Eagles and QB Jalen Hurts have agreed to a five-year contract extension, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The deal reportedly includes $255 million in total money, with $179.304 million in guarantees -- plus an extra $15 million in incentives. The pact also comes with a no-trade clause, the first the team has ever given out, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This obviously locks Hurts in as Philly's starter for the foreseeable future, which is good news for his spot in the dynasty rankings. This could also be a key move in the Lamar Jackson saga. Hurts' deal -- along with other recent second QB contracts -- seems to set the market.
