Well, Jalen Hurts came through in a big way for fantasy managers in week one against the Atlanta Falcons defense. Hurts was able to throw for 264 yards and three touchdowns, while adding 62 yards on the ground as well. The Falcons secondary looked abysmal though and Hurts will have a tougher matchup here against the 49ers defense, despite what the numbers suggest from the Lions game in week one. With that being said, we saw enough from the second-year QB in week one to continue plugging him into our starting lineups as a low-end QB1. Even if he struggles as a passer in this game, he'll provide a high enough floor with his rushing output to return value on where he's being ranked.
