Player Outlook
Minshew is one of the best backup quarterbacks in the NFL, but as long as Jalen Hurts is healthy, Minshew belongs on the waiver wire. If Hurts misses time, Minshew will be a must-start option in two-quarterback leagues and a quality streamer in formats where you start one quarterback.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Makes two spot starts in 2021

    Minshew completed 41 of 60 passes for 439 yards, four touchdowns and an interception across four appearances during the 2021 campaign. He also added nine rushing attempts for 21 yards. While he made four appearances, the majority of Minshew's production came in two spot starts. In Week 13, he drew the nod against the Jets while Jalen Hurts (ankle) was sidelined, leading the Eagles to a win by completing 20 of 25 passes for 242 yards and two scores. In regular-season finale, Minshew once again took the reins from Hurts -- who was resting for the playoffs -- and completed 19 of 33 passes for 186 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, while leading Philadelphia past Dallas. Minshew is under contract for the 2022 season, but his name likely will be mentioned in trade talks after the Eagles expressed confidence in Hurts moving forward.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Throws two touchdowns

    Minshew completed 19 of 33 passes for 186 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 51-26 loss to the Cowboys. Minshew got off to a decent start, capping the Eagles' opening drive with a three-yard shovel pass to Tyree Jackson for a touchdown. He later had a deep, would-be touchdown dropped by J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, who also couldn't haul in a pass that floated on Minshew before being intercepted in the second half. Fortunately, though, the signal-caller closed on a high note, hitting Quez Watkins for a 36-yard score with under two minutes remaining. Although usual starter Jalen Hurts (coach's decision) should reclaim his job for next weekend's playoff game after resting Saturday, Minshew at least embodies a serviceable backup if needed.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Getting spot start Saturday

    Minshew will start Saturday's game against the Cowboys with Jalen Hurts (ankle) inactive, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. The Eagles are giving Hurts the week off to ensure he's as healthy as possible for the postseason. Minshew thus will make his fourth appearance and second start with the team, which so far has translated to 22-for-27 passing for 253 yards and two touchdowns to go with four carries for 11 yards.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Eagles-Washington moved to Tuesday

    Minshew and the Eagles will no longer play Washington on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. The delay should also provide more healing time for Eagles signal-caller Jalen Hurts, who sat out the Eagles' Week 13 win over the Jets with a left ankle sprain before Philadelphia went on bye Week 14. Hurts returned to practice this week and upgraded to full participation Friday after limited activity Wednesday and Thursday, but the Eagles still gave him a questionable designation heading into the weekend. Head coach Nick Sirianni previously said that Hurts would be the team's starter when healthy, but if the Eagles have any reservations about the second-year signal-caller's status by the time Tuesday arrives, Minshew will be prepared to make his second straight start. Minshew continued to share first-team reps in practice with Hurts this week, coming off an impressive Week 13 outing in which he completed 20 of 25 attempts for 242 yards and two touchdowns.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Sharing first-team reps

    Minshew and Jalen Hurts (ankle) are expected to split practice reps this week, with Hurts considered truly questionable for Sunday's game against Washington, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Head coach Nick Sirianni said Wednesday that Hurts is trending up, but Garafolo suggests that's relative to Week 13, when the Eagles knew all along that the 23-year-old in was unlikely to play in the team's eventual win over the Jets. While Hurts has a better chance to suit up after the team's Week 14 bye, him playing is apparently no sure thing, so Minshew could get the chance to make a second straight start. He completed 20 of 25 passes for 242 yards and two touchdowns in the 33-18 win over the Jets, and the upcoming matchup could be similarly favorable with Washington's defense hit hard by COVID-19 absences.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Accurate in win

    Minshew completed 20 of his 25 passes for 242 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sundays 33-18 win over the Jets. Minshew drew the spot start with Jalen Hurts (ankle) inactive and led the Eagles offense to an efficient performance. He ended the first half having completed 14 of his 15 pass attempts for 188 yards and two touchdowns, finding the end zone on completions of 36 and 25 yards. Despite the strong effort, his production was curtailed in the second half by game script as the Eagles relied heavily on the run to maintain their lead. Even with this impressive effort, Minshew will likely be limited to this lone start because Hurts will have the team's bye in Week 14 to allow his ankle to heal.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Picking up Week 13 start

    Minshew will start Sunday's game against the Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. With Jalen Hurts (ankle) inactive for the first time this season, Minshew will see his first extended action as a member of the Eagles, as his lone prior appearance with Philadelphia came during garbage time of a Week 8 win over the Lions. While Minshew isn't nearly as threatening as Hurts as a runner, he could amount to an upgrade for the Philadelphia passing game. In 23 games (20 starts) with Jacksonville over the past two seasons, Minshew averaged 240.4 passing yards per contest while posting a 37:11 TD:INT.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Spot start likely awaits

    Minshew could be in line to earn a spot start Sunday at the Jets with Jalen Hurts (ankle) trending toward inactive status, independent reported Derrick Gunn reports. Hurts came out of a Week 12 loss to the Giants with a sore left ankle and proceeded to log limited practices Wednesday through Friday, splitting first-team reps with Minshew in the process, per Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer. The contingency plan set up Minshew to be the Eagles' No. 1 quarterback if Hurts was unable to go, and that scenario seems as if it'll come to pass. The Eagles will confirm as much approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. While Minshew has only made one brief appearance with the Eagles back in Week 8 -- he completed both passes for 11 yards -- he previously averaged 240.4 passing yards per game, tossed 37 touchdowns versus 11 interceptions and racked up 497 yards and one score on the ground in 23 games (20 starts) for the Jaguars.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Could draw Week 13 start

    Minshew took about half of the available reps with the Eagles' first-team offense this week and could be needed to start Sunday against the Jets with Jalen Hurts (ankle) listed as questionable for the contest, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Head coach Nick Sirianni noted that he's confident in either of his two quarterbacks, but Hurts will retain the starting job if he's able to make enough progress in his recovery from the sprained ankle that limited his practice activity this week. Since the Eagles kick off among the early wave of Sunday games at 1 p.m. ET, fantasy managers looking for clarity on Hurts' status should have alternatives available in the event he's inactive, with Minshew representing one of those options. Though his lone game action this season has come in garbage time of a blowout win over the Lions in Week 8, Minshew showed during his previous two seasons in Jacksonville that he can do an adequate job of directing an offense while presenting some threat as a scrambler, though not nearly to the degree of Hurts. Over 24 career games, Minshew owns a 63 percent completion rate to go with 6.9 yards per attempt and a 37:11 TD:INT.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Moving up depth chart

    Minshew moved up the depth chart to No. 2 behind starter Jalen Hurts after the Eagles traded Joe Flacco to the Jets on Monday, Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "We feel really good about Gardner Minshew being our No. 2 quarterback," coach Nick Sirianni said. Since he landed in Philly on Aug. 28 after playing out the preseason with the Jaguars, Minshew has been the Eagles' third quarterback behind Hurts and Flacco, relegating him to inactive status for each of the team's seven games to date. Now with Flacco back in New York, Minshew will be on hand in the event of a Hurts injury or demotion. In his first two pro campaigns in Jacksonville, Minshew went 7-13 as a starter, averaged 240.4 yards per game and posted 37 touchdowns versus 11 interceptions in 23 appearances. He also made an impact as a runner, compiling 497 yards and one TD on the ground.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Inactive Thursday

    Minshew (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers. Minshew hasn't been active for any of the first six games of the season. Joe Flacco will serve as the primary backup behind Jalen Hurts once again.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Sitting again Week 3

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Not playing Week 2

    Minshew (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday against the 49ers. As he was in the season opener, Minshew will be in street clothes while Jalen Hurts starts at QB for the Eagles, with Joe Flacco in reserve.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Healthy scratch Sunday

    Minshew (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game at Atlanta. Minshew arrived in Philadelphia back on Aug. 28 via a trade with the Jaguars, but he won't be in uniform for his first potential game with the Eagles. Instead, Jalen Hurts will be under center, as expected, with Joe Flacco the only other available QB to coach Nick Sirianni.

  • Eagles' Gardner Minshew: Traded to Philly

    Minshew was traded to the Eagles from the Jaguars for a conditional sixth-round pick Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. It appears as if the quarterback competition orchestrated by coach Urban Meyer paid off as the Jaguars were able to land a sixth-round pick, which could turn into a fifth depending on how much Minshew plays on his new team. It's a curious move on the side of the Eagles considering Joe Flacco was supposedly locked in as the team's top backup, but the move to acquire Minshew might mean the veteran Super Bowl winner could slide down on the depth chart. It's hard to imagine the 2019 sixth-round pick will challenge Jalen Hurts for the starting spot, but Minshew is a cheap asset who has proved to be a relatively quality backup during his handful of starts thus far in his career.

  • Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Backup status official

    Head coach Urban Meyer announced Wednesday that Trevor Lawrence will start Week 1 in Houston, leaving Minshew to handle backup duties, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Meyer took his time in officially naming a starting quarterback, but it ultimately comes as no surprise to see the rookie No. 1 overall pick finishing ahead of Minshew on the depth chart. Minshew will be one of the more competent backups in the NFL, to his credit. Across 23 appearances in the first two seasons of his career, Minshew logged a more than respectable 37:11 TD:INT. The 25-year-old could even still garner interest around the league as a trade candidate, should the Jaguars opt to go that route.

  • Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Throws costly interception

    Minshew completed 13 of 21 passes for 149 yards and an interception in Monday night's 23-21 preseason loss to the Saints. Minshew entered after watching rookie top pick Trevor Lawrence complete 14 of 23 attempts for 113 yards in the first half, managing just three points on six drives. Although Minshew was more efficient and had the Jags on the doorstep of scoring, his interception from the opposing two-yard line put a big damper on his performance. The third-year pro already was facing an uphill battle to be named starter over Lawrence, and even though that determination is yet to be made, it wouldn't be surprising if Minshew learns his second-string fate sometime soon.

  • Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Could be traded soon

    The Jaguars' signing Wednesday of quarterback C.J. Beathard could set the stage for Minshew to be traded, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Moving on from Minshew would represent a downgrade for the backup quarterback spot, but potentially worthwhile for Jacksonville if it could get draft picks or a useful veteran player in exchange for the 24-year-old. With the team widely expected to draft Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the No. 1 overall pick in April's draft, it's hard to imagine Minshew having any objection to a trade.

  • Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Relegated to backup

    Minshew will act as the team's backup Sunday against the Bears after it was announced Mike Glennon would start the contest, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Minshew's relatively solid surface numbers against the Ravens last week (75.9 completion percentage, two touchdowns to one turnover) masked what was a quietly toothless Jaguars offense albeit against a difficult matchup. It's not entirely surprising to see the team turn to Glennon as the starter after both quarterbacks split first-team reps throughout the week, but considering the veteran's track record as as a below-average starter at the professional level, it's hard to imagine much will change from an offensive perspective in another difficult matchup on tap for Week 16.

  • Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Competing for Week 16 starting gig

    Head coach Doug Marrone said Minshew and Mike Glennon will split first-team reps in practice this week before a decision is made on the Jaguars' starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Bears, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports. Minshew took back the starting role after shining in relief of Glennon in the Week 14 loss to the Titans, but the former struggled mightily to move the offense for most of the day in last weekend's blowout loss to the Ravens. Though Minshew only turned the ball over once and finished with a 75.9 percent completion rate, 7.8 YPA and two touchdown passes, most of his production came in the second half during garbage time. As a result, Minshew will be forced to compete for his job once again, but no matter who wins the battle, fantasy managers likely will want to avoid the Jacksonville quarterback situation Week 16.
