Eagles HC Nick Sirianni said Friday morning that QB Jalen Hurts is "trending in the right direction" for playing Sunday against the Giants. Don't be surprised if he carries a "questionable" tag on the final practice report. We'll certainly be watching Hurts' status right up until his game's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. Let's hope fantasy football managers get clarity before then, though.
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.
The Eagles promoted Brian Johnson to OC. The 36-year-old has spent the past 2 seasons as Philly's QB coach, helping QB Jalen Hurts develop into 1 of the game's best. While this will be Johnson's first NFL OC gig, he does have 4 years of OC experience at the college level (2012-2013 at Utah, 2017 at Houston and 2020 at Florida). With Johnson's promotion and HC Nick Sirianni back, there should be plenty of continuity for the Eagles' offense in 2023, despite the loss of OC Shane Steichen.
Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 15 of 25 attempts for 121 passing yards in addition to rushing for 39 yards and scoring a TD on the ground in Sunday's NFC Championship win vs. the 49ers. Next for Hurts is a showdown against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII. The Chiefs' defense ranks as the 2nd-best matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs.
Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 16 of 24 pass attempts for 154 yards and 2 TDs in Saturday's Divisional Round win vs. the Giants. Hurts also added 34 rushing yards and 1 TD on the ground. The dual threat looked much better and healthier than he had in Week 18 vs. this same Giants' defense. The playoff bye week seems to have been what Hurts needed to give his ailing right shoulder some rest. Whichever team the Eagles end up playing next will certainly have their hands full if Hurts and company can replicate the dominant success from this Divisional round game.
Eagles QB Jalen Hurts did not appear on the team's initial injury report on Tuesday ahead of Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Giants. Considering the dual-threat QB missed 2 games due to a right shoulder injury sustained in Week 15 vs. the Bears, his lack of being on the report is tremendous news. Hurts last played against the Giants in Week 18 and posted modern numbers. Hopefully, with some rest behind him, we'll see production closer to what Hurts did in Week 14 with 77 rushing yards and 30.4 fantasy points. A presumably healthy Hurts is easily a top-3 QB in playoff fantasy contests.
