Fantasy Football Week 14 QB Rankings: Jalen Hurts to Start? Drew Brees Returns?

Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings Week 14

Getty Jalen Hurts #2 of the Philadelphia Eagles celebrates following his first NFL career touchdown pass during the fourth quarter of their game against the Green Bay Packers.

Welcome to our Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 14 of the 2020 NFL regular season. This week Tom Brady returns from a bye, while Drew Brees may make his return from injured reserve. ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that Brees is “tracking to play” as early as this week. He is eligible to return this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Speaking of the Eagles, is there a new starting QB in Philly? Let’s take a look.

Quarterback Outlook Week 14

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson has declined to name a starter at quarterback for Week 14. With that said, it appears that he is leaning towards a change to Jalen Hurts (QB29), as he informed NBCS’ John Clark that he wants “to get Carson right.” 

Hurts added a spark to Philly’s offense late in their Week 13 loss to the Green Bay Packers, most notably hitting Greg Ward for a TD on a fourth and 18 play. Furthermore, his rushing ability makes him a viable add at the position, as does any QB who offers a similar threat on the ground. Even more important, the Eagles offense has proven capable of housing a QB1, as Carson Wentz was the third-highest scoring player at his position from Week 3-7.

With all that said, Hurts is best avoided this week as his matchup is daunting, to say the least. The New Orleans Saints have allowed an average of just 9.44 points to QBs over the past month (fewest in NFL). That average includes three games against former league MVPs (Tom Brady & Matt Ryan twice).
