Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) is trending upward, according to head coach Nick Sirianni. Hurts and Gardner Minshew will split first-team reps in practice.
Huddle Up: Hurts is a low-end QB1 if he's able to play. Minshew played well enough to keep rostered to block other owners in case he's called upon.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) will keep the starting job even though QB Gardner Minshew performed well in Week 13, according to head coach Nick Sirianni.
Huddle Up: Hurts will have an extra week to recover from his injury, so fantasy players should check on Hurts' practice participation next week. Hurts can be a low-end No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 quarterback when he returns.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Gardner Minshew completed 20-for-25 passing, resulting in 242 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 13 at the New York Jets on Sunday, Dec. 5.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Gardner Minshew will be starting quarterback for the Week 13 game, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Minshew will replace Jalen Hurts for at least one week. He has not played much over the last few weeks and will only be a low-end No. 2 quarterback in two-quarterback leagues.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) is meeting with the club's training staff prior to Week 13's game Sunday, Dec. 5. It still appears unlikely that Hurts will play at this point, meaning that QB Gardner Minshew would likely receive the starting nod versus the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners should not count on having Hurts available for this week's game and even if he was unexpectedly cleared to play, he would not be a recommended fantasy option due to having limited mobility. Minshew has shown moments of brilliance in the past but should be avoided in most fantasy leagues despite the matchup.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) appears unlikely to play in the Week 13 game because of his ankle injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. NFL reporter Derrick Gunn says that Hurts has been ruled out of the game and that QB Gardner Minshew will be the starting quarterback.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can check the inactive list for Hurts' official status, but they should not count on having him this week. Minshew has played well at times in the past but can be avoided in most leagues despite the matchup.

Jacksonville Jaguars QBs Trevor Lawrence and Gardner Minshew are in a open competition to start in Week 1 of the regular season, head coach Urban Meyer said Thursday, Aug. 12. Meyer said the starter for Saturday night's preseason opener will be announced later Thursday.
Huddle Up: The lip service continues in Jacksonville, as the overwhelming majority still believe that Lawrence will be the Jags' starter from Game 1 going forward. He's currently valued as a high-upside QB2 in drafts while Minshew is viwed as one of the league's top backups.
