The Eagles can clinch a playoff spot with some outside help, but they also need to beat the Football Team in Washington. That said, are they even a good bet to cover as a 4.5-point road favorite?

Jalen Hurts (ankle) was limited during Wednesday's practice. This is likely just maintenance for Hurts, who followed a similar routine last week. He likely will be ready to face Washington on Sunday. He put up three total touchdowns against the Football Team back in Week 15.
Washington Football Team DFS Spin
Washington did not activate Antonio Gibson from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of the team's Week 17 game against the Eagles. With J.D. McKissic on IR because of a concussion, Jarett Patterson is in line for a massive workload this week. His only completion for reps is Jonathan Williams, who has 10 touches on the year. Patterson plays for a struggling offense but the increased volume sets him up for RB2 fantasy numbers.
