The Philadelphia Eagles got a big win over the Jets on Sunday as they head into their late-season bye, and head coach Nick Sirianni spoke to reporters after the game about Jalen Hurts, his injury, and why he’s still the starter when he’s ready to return. He also noted that Gardner Minshew had a good game, their run game is successful because of the offensive line, and Jake Elliott’s consistency makes them comfortable kicking the ball.
Sirianni went on to say Hurts has shown to be one of the best in the league moving around and making plays and when he's healthy, he'll be the starter. Minshew looked good against the struggling Jets and while Hurts has looked good at times, he's also struggled, especially last week against the Giants. The Eagles have a bye in Week 14.
PHI K Jake Elliott - Week 19 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 19 at New Orleans Saints
Just how charmed the Nick Foles-led Eagles are will be tested this week, as the Super Bowl MVP and winner of four consecutive games travels to New Orleans where Philadelphia lost by 41 in Week 11. The Birds have the third lowest implied team total this week at 21.75 points. That keeps us from liking Jake Elliott.
