Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said benching Carson Wentz for rookie Jalen Hurts would be a "knee jerk reaction." “No, you don’t go there," Pederson said when asked about the prospect of benching his franchise player. We're not sure making the move would be "knee jerk" after Wentz's immense struggles through three weeks. If his job is safe after completing 59.8 percent of his passes and throwing six picks in three games, Wentz likely won't face a benching this season. Wentz's adjusted yards per attempt has plunged to 4, or half of his career high A/YA. His rushing prowess might make him usable in superflex formats next week against the 49ers.

Jimmy Garoppolo (ankled) remained sidelined Thursday. Nick Mullens has taken every first-team rep this week. Garoppolo is going to miss another game vs. the Eagles. With zero reps under his belt since getting injured in Week 2, Garoppolo is looking questionable to return in Week 5 against the Dolphins.
