The rookie quarterback turned in an outstanding Week 15 performance against the Arizona Cardinals, making him a valuable waiver wire claim heading into the last two games of the season. What should we expect from Jalen Hurts on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys? Let’s break it down below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Eagles QB Jalen Hurts

Last week against the Cardinals, Hurts had a dynamic performance as he went head-to-head with Kyler Murray. Despite being sacked six times, Hurts completed 24-of-44 passes for 338 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. He also had 33 rushing yards and a touchdown on ground. Hurts ultimately scored 37.82 fantasy points, which is unheard of from a rookie quarterback in only his second career start.

The second-round pick has made a strong case to be a fun play in DFS and a solid streaming option in standard fantasy football. This week, he’ll be going up against a Dallas Cowboys’ defense that is allowing 30 passing touchdowns and 19.2 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks.
