Bold Prediction: Jalen Hurts Will Finish as a Top-4 Quarterback

Jalen Hurts will finish as a top-four fantasy quarterback. He finished QB9 overall last season, and we saw some development while Hurts still left points on the field as a passer. He led the position in rush attempts, rushing yards and rushing touchdowns last season. Hurts averaged 21.4 fantasy points per game. His 7.3 yards per attempt were higher than Ryan Tannehill, Tua Tagovailoa and Josh Allen. The Eagles went hard for a true No. 1 receiver in A.J. Brown, who excels in yards after the catch. In short, Hurts does not need to morph into a high-volume passer to take a step forward in fantasy production. He just needs the bump in passing that Brown can provide and to do what he’s already done well with his legs.”

Jalen Hurts 2022 Fantasy Football Outlook

In his first full season, Jalen Hurts was the QB6 in fantasy points per game as the Eagles’ starting quarterback. An ankle sprain dropped his rushing numbers from 57.9 to 29.7 yards per game over his final three contests. Without that ding, his full-season numbers could have been even better. With another season in this offensive system incoming and A.J. Brown now on the roster, Hurts has top-three fantasy quarterback upside in 2022.
