2020 Stat Predictions: Quarterbacks
While wide receiver seems to be one of the better areas to predict this year, the quarterback room has plenty of unpredictability this season. Will Jalen Hurts be used in 10 percent of plays or more? Will Carson Wentz stay healthy? All of these questions will be answered later this year, but for now, this article will take a shot at guessing where the quarterback group will finish this year.
Wentz receives an unfair amount of doubt and criticism in my opinion. It's only been three years since he was lighting up the NFL and should have brought home an MVP trophy despite a season-ending knee injury. This season, we will see glimpses of his 2017 season. His first game with speedster DeSean Jackson he threw for 313 yards and three touchdowns. He now has plenty of weapons and will throw for 4,389 yards (new franchise record), 33 touchdowns (tie franchise record) and eight interceptions. Wentz will add 158 rushing yards and three touchdowns.
Hurts will see time this year. It won't be as a starter, but he will definitely get on the field with his playmaking ability. He's impressed the coaching staff enough to earn that playing time. While he won't light up fantasy scoreboards anywhere, he will have a productive year on the field. Hurts will pass for three touchdowns, rush for four and have a receiving touchdown by the end of the 2020 season.
If this 2020 circus year forces Nate Sudfeld to take snaps due to injuries by Wentz and Hurts, I might light myself on fire...
