Gardner Minshew II tosses two touchdown passes in Week 18 loss

Eagles quarterback Gardner Minshew II completed 19 of his 33 pass attempts for 186 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in Saturday's loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Minshew was playing with nearly all backups on Saturday, and the Eagles kept the game close in the first half before Dallas broke things open in the second half. Minshew finishes the season having completed 41 of his 60 pass attempts for 439 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception.

Gardner Minshew II to start on Saturday

Eagles quarterback Gardner Minshew will draw the start against the Cowboys in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact

Minshew gets the nod after the Eagles chose to rest several key starters, including Hurts. Philadelphia has a playoff spot locked up and now waits to see whether they'll be the sixth or seventh seed in the NFC. Fantasy managers should view Minshew as a low-end QB2 in Week 18.

Gardner Minshew II impresses in win over Jets

Eagles quarterback Gardner Minshew II completed 20 of his 25 pass attempts for 242 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions in Sunday's win over the New York Jets. He also rushed for 11 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Minshew filled in admirably for the injured Jalen Hurts, completing 80% of his passes and leading the offense to 33 points against a bad Jets defense. Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said after the game that there is no quarterback controversy in Philadelphia and that Hurts remains the starter, but Minshew's performance likely makes any potential Hurts leash that much shorter over the final month of the season.

Gardner Minshew II reportedly starting in Week 13 vs Jets

The Eagles are reportedly starting Gardner Minshew at quarterback in Sunday's Week 13 game against the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Jalen Hurts is battling an ankle injury and with the Eagles having a Week 14 bye it seems as if they don't want to push things with him. Minshew isn't a fantasy option himself, but he also doesn't sink the values of DeVonta Smith or Dallas Goedert.

Gardner Minshew traded to the Philadelphia Eagles

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Jaguars are trading QB Gardner Minshew to the Eagles for a conditional 2022 sixth-round pick.

Fantasy Impact

Minshew's days in Jacksonville had been numbered as soon as the Jaguars drafted QB Trevor Lawrence first overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, so this is a move that was somewhat to be expected. The more interesting piece is the landing spot for Minshew as he joins the Eagles and QB Jalen Hurts. The Eagles had been linked with adding another QB behind Hurts for some time, the question of course being is would this be a move to add depth or to potentially challenge Hurts. Right now, given the draft capital involved, a sixth round pick that can turn into a fifth rounder based on playing time, it would seem that Hurts isn't in trouble of losing his job. However, this could be the change of scenery needed for Minshew and given the lack of long term commitment from the Eagles towards Hurts, Minshew could be in the conversation for starting QB in the future. Minshew played in nine games for the Jaguars in 2020 and compiled 2,259 yards for 16 TD's and five interceptions. This move automatically gives the Eagles an improvement at the backup QB spot with a high upside player that could step in on short notice if needed. For fantasy football purposes, unless Hurts suffers an injury, Minshew is unlikely to have much fantasy appeal in 2021.
