The Philadelphia Eagles have traded for quarterback Gardner Minshew. Philadelphia surrendered a conditional sixth round pick to acquire the signal-caller. The pick becomes a fifth round selection if Minshew plays 50% or more of the snaps in three games this season.
The Eagles needed to address their backup quarterback situation and have found an answer in Garnder Minshew. Minshew has starting experience and will make for a solid spot starter if needed. Jalen Hurts' fantasy value is not affected by this acquisition. He remains a potentially elite fantasy option and is currently our 10th ranked quarterback. Trevor Lawrence's fantasy value also remains the same as the 'competition' in Jacksonville was always viewed with skepticism.
