Heading into the fantasy football finals, these rankings are more up in the air than ever. We have numerous injury situations around the league to monitor, so be ready to change your lineups at a moment’s notice. One thing is for certain, however, and that is the fantasy upside of Jalen Hurts. In his first two career starts, Hurts finished as the QB13 against a tough New Orleans defense, and then followed that up with a QB1 overall finish against the Arizona Cardinals in a shootout. Hurts has rushed for 169 total yards in his first two starts and gets a below-average Cowboys defense that he should be able to exploit. Hurts is a locked-in QB1 for the fantasy finals, and comes in as my QB5 overall.
