Fantasy Football Player Notes
Week 12 Rankings
As Ryan McDowell noted on Twitter the other day, Hurts has finished as a top-12 fantasy scorer at quarterback 10 times this season, and no other quarterback has more than seven top-12 finishes. Hurts had 69 rushing yards and three TD runs last week in the Eagles' 40-29 win over the Saints, fueling a 30.8-point fantasy performance. One concern is that the Eagles appear to have had a major philosophical shift on offense. From Week 3 to Week 7, Philadelphia's running backs had 53 carries - an average of just 10.6 carries a game. In the last four weeks, the Eagles' RBs have logged 123 carries - an average of 30.8 carries a game.
