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.

Hurts is the Eagles' top QB after they traded Carson Wentz to Indianapolis, though the team could still draft another signal-caller, according to Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Inquirer.
ANALYSIS
Already owners of the sixth overall pick, the Eagles added a 2021 third-rounder and a conditional 2022 second-round pick in the Wentz trade. What they do next depends on their confidence in Hurts, who had eight total touchdowns -- but also three INTs and six fumbles -- over the final four weeks of 2020. The 22-year-old is a clear favorite for the Week 1 start at this point, but the Eagles still have time to add competition, or at least a high-end backup.
