Philadelphia Eagles DFS Spin
Jalen Hurts will start in Week 15 against the Cardinals. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson on Sunday night pretended he hadn't made up his mind about which QB would start against Arizona. He had no choice but to roll with Hurts after he led the team to a stunning upset victory over the Saints. The rookie completed 17-of-30 passes for 167 yards and a touchdown against New Orleans, tacking on 18 carries for 106 yards. Hurts was the eighth highest scoring quarterback in fantasy on Sunday. Philadelphia pass catcher have a much lower floor with Hurts starting, but fantasy players who were patient with Miles Sanders could benefit from championship-winning upside in the coming weeks. Hurts is a borderline QB1 option against Arizona based on his rushing opportunity alone.
Arizona Cardinals DFS Spin
Kyler Murray completed 24-of-35 passes for 244 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals Week 14 win over the Giants, adding 13 carries for 47 yards. Murray's rushing line isn't immense but it is his highest yardage total on the ground since Week 10. He has been dealing with a shoulder injury which many believe to be the reason his rushing numbers have been down. Murray looked fast and aggressive when running the football versus the Giants. DeAndre Hopkins racked up much of Murray's passing yards while running after the catch but Murray was taking what the Giants gave him and simply letting Hopkins do the rest. Murray remains a top-five QB option against the Eagles next week.
