2021 Fantasy Outlook
Hurts started the final four games last season, displacing Carson Wentz and causing a rift between owner and coach that eventually led to the latter's dismissal. Out of college, the knock on Hurts, the Eagles' second-round pick last year, was his accuracy and arm strength. He did little to prove critics wrong. Among the 40 QBs with at least 140 attempts, Hurts ranked last in completion percentage (52.0) — lowest in the league since 2017. He didn't fare well throwing deep either. On attempts of at least 20 yards, only 36.4 percent were on target (34th of 38, min. 20 attempts). Part of the problem was an utter lack of playmakers in the Eagles offense. The leading receiver was the uninspiring Greg Ward, while tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert each missed five games. And compared to Wentz, Hurts was better. Hurts' bad-pass percentage was 20.9, while Wentz posted a league-high 28.4 percent; his YPA was 7.2 to Wentz's 6.0. Hurts also showed reason for optimism with his rushing. Fast and elusive, he averaged 68 rushing yards in his four starts, a 1,000-yard season pace. The Eagles cleared the way for Hurts this offseason by trading Wentz. They then drafted WR DeVonta Smith with the 10th overall pick, and last year's first-round pick, Jalen Reagor, is healthy after an injury-plagued rookie season. A healthy year from Goedert would go a long way too. Former Colts OC Nick Sirianni is the new head coach, while the new offensive coordinator is Shane Steichen, who oversaw Justin Herbert's emergence last season with the Chargers. That bodes well for Hurts, but he needs his young receivers to blossom. Read Past Outlooks

Ankle
January 19, 2022
Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said Wednesday that Hurts (ankle) showed enough to keep his job as the starting quarterback entering the 2022 season, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The Eagles have the requisite cap space and draft picks to pursue an upgrade, but Roseman said his plan for the offseason is to build around Hurts, who went 8-7-0 as a starter in 2021 and finished the regular season with 3,144 passing yards, 784 rushing yards, 26 total touchdowns and 11 turnovers. While he placed just 26th among 31 qualified passers in completion rate (61.3 percent), Hurts was above-average at avoiding sacks and turnovers, in addition to leading all signal-callers in rushing yards (784) and rushing touchdowns (10). That's solid work for an age-23 season, especially given that Hurts has been stuck with a different coaching staff four straight years dating back to his college days. He'll now have continuity with head coach Nick Sirianni and offensive coordinator Shane Steichen, as well as his top two targets in wideout DeVonta Smith and tight end Dallas Goedert. Next, Hurts will likely take some time to rest and recover, hoping to avoid offseason surgery on the ankle he initially injured in late November.

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.
