Philadelphia Eagles second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts once again turned into a solid performance for fantasy football last week against the Raiders. He’ll now try to lead the Eagles to a win on Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles QB Jalen Hurts
Hurts did not have the best of games against Las Vegas in Week 7, but he managed to not throw an interception after having two in the previous two games. The second-year QB completed 18-of-34 passes for 236 yards, two touchdowns and had a team-high 61 yards on the ground.
For his efforts, Hurts turned in his seventh straight game with 20 fantasy points or more (23.54). We could potentially expect another 20-point performance from the young QB as the Eagles may be without starting RB Miles Sanders. If that’s the case, we could see Hurts running the ball more and continuing to be a focal point of the offense.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
The Lions’ defense is giving up 20 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, making Hurts an easy must-start this week.
