Fantasy playoffs are underway, and even though the Eagles offense hasn't provided much success for fantasy managers this season, the script might have been switched now with Jalen Hurts under center. So let’s take a look at the Eagles offense and who is worth starting in your fantasy lineups if you are still in the running for your league's championship.
Jalen Hurts- Start
It seems like the Eagles made the right decision with Jalen Hurts last week. We didn't see Hurts throw the ball all over the Saints, but he did run all over them. He was able to run for over 100 yards on the team ranked second-best against the run. We may not see him get 18 carries again this week, but we may still see him with a solid number of rushing yards. Based on his rushing upside, Hurts can be a risky start this week but could provide a big reward.
Miles Sanders - Start
Against the Saints, Sanders had 14 carries for 115 yards and two touchdowns. He was also targeted in the passing game five times and finished with 4 receptions for 21 yards. The Saints did not allow a 100-yard rusher in over three seasons, and the Eagles ended that streak with two 100-yard rushers. With Hurts in the gameplan now, Sanders is worth starting every week the rest of the season.
Boston Scott - Sit
Last week Scott only had three carries for six yards and he only had one target, which he caught for 11 yards. Miles Sanders is healthy and has been playing well, which means we will only see Scott in a very limited role moving forward. He should not see your starting lineup and maybe worth dropping at this point.
Wide Receivers - Sit
With the upset of the year occurring last week for the Eagles, they still did not have a standout performance from any of their wide receivers. No wide receiver had more than two receptions. Greg Ward had the most targets and he only had five of them. On top of that, Jalen Reagor led the team in receiving yards and he only had 46. When looking at these numbers, none of the Eagles receivers are producing enough in the offense to be in your lineup with the fantasy playoffs on the line.
Zach Ertz - Sit
The Zach Ertz we see now is not the Zach Ertz of old. Ertz had played in two games since coming back from injury, and in that span he has just four receptions for 39 yards. These numbers are not the numbers you would expect from Ertz after big performances in seasons past. We have seen him struggle all season and for those reasons, he is not a start this week.
Dallas Goedert - Start
If you are going to start anyone in the Eagles passing attack, it is going to be Dallas Goedert. Against the Saints he had four receptions for 43 yards. He also led the team in targets with six of them. His numbers are not amazing, but he has been consistent. He isn’t going to blow you away, but he can help your team in your tight end slot if you start him this week.
