News Articles > Eagles | Nate Sudfeld has edge for backup role

(thehuddle) Philadelphia Eagles QB Nate Sudfeld is viewed as the frontrunner for the backup job over rookie QB Jalen Hurts, according to head coach Doug Pederson. 'Early on in this season ... teams are going to have to rely on their veterans. And Nate (Sudfeld) is one of those guys for us. ... I have a ton of confidence in Nate becoming our backup QB.' Pederson added Hurts will need to 'learn and pick up our system.'

Analysis: Neither Sudfeld nor Hurts will enter the season with fantasy value in redraft leagues, but either one could become a hot waiver commodity if starting QB Carson Wentz were to miss any amount of time. Hurts is an option in dynasty leagues in hopes of one day earning a starting role in Philly or elsewhere.
