Jalen Hurts Practices Thursday, A.J. Brown Not Spotted Ahead of Wild Card Game

The Eagles are sputtering into the playoffs missing a few feathers, but it looks like the head of the whole operation - Jalen Hurts - should be good to go for the final matchup of super wild card weekend when they take on the Bucs in Tampa Bay. As for A.J. Brown, the picture isn’t as rosy at this current juncture - he wasn’t spotted at practice on Thursday as he tends to a knee injury. It’s just Philadelphia’s first practice of the week, so there’s no reason to panic just yet if you planned on drafting any of the Eagles’ playmakers for your DFS contests this weekend – but close attention should be paid to the status of A.J. Brown. If the star receiver were unable to suit up against the Bucs, Jalen Hurts’ value would likely suffer as a result. Despite the lull the Eagles are currently riding out, Hurts has continued to be effective as a fantasy quarterback, rushing for 171 yards and three touchdowns over the Eagles’ 1-5 stretch to buoy his otherwise meager passing production. He should be drafted and started according to the regularly scheduled programming if he plays - and it seems like he’s trending that way.
