2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Eagles surprisingly made Hurts their second-round pick in this year's draft despite Carson Wentz cemented as the starter. But Wentz is injury prone having missed eight games in four seasons (and was knocked out of the Eagles' wild card game last year), so it wouldn't surprise if the 6-1 Hurts gets some time under center this season. In the meantime, he can continue to develop as a passer, as he already has the mobility to kill defenses on the run. Hurts, who ran a 4.59 40 at the combine (second fastest among QBs), set a school record as a freshman at Alabama with 954 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. As a grad-school transfer to Oklahoma last season, he was a Heisman Trophy finalist after rushing for 1,298 yards and 20 touchdowns. The knock on Hurts was his accuracy and arm strength, but he completed 69.7 percent of his passes last season (7th in nation) with 32 TDs and eight INTs and then wowed scouts at the combine with his downfield passing. Still, if Wentz stays healthy, he won't see much action, other than perhaps a Taysom Hill-like role. If Wentz gets injured, though, Hurts can at least use his legs to extend plays. That has value.

Coach's Decision
September 13, 2020
Hurts (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday at Washington.
ANALYSIS
A healthy scratch to begin his NFL career, the 2020 second-round pick will don street clothes while Nate Sudfeld serves as Carson Wentz's backup. Without an injury to the two quarterbacks in front of him, Hurts may be a regular inactive for the Eagles for the foreseeable future.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that while Hurts will have the opportunity to compete for the No. 2 quarterback job, the rookie is likely to begin the season behind both Carson Wentz and Nate Sudfeld on the depth chart, Matt Mullin of PhillyVoice.com reports. "Football teams are going to have to rely on their veteran players, and Nate is one of those guys for us. I have a ton of confidence in Nate to become the backup quarterback," Pederson said. "Nothing is ever handed to anybody, and we always try to create competition at every position, and quarterback is not exempt from that. But I fully expect Nate to come in and be aggressive and do the things that he's capable of doing and become the backup to Carson."
