Carson Wentz will be the backup
Eagles’ HC Doug Pederson is naming Jalen Hurts his new starting quarterback and the rookie will start Sunday vs. the New Orleans Saints, sources tell @AdamSchefter and me. Carson Wentz will back up Hurts. (Chris Mortensen on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Hurts came in for Wentz last week against the Packers and while this move may give the team a short-term spark it remains to be seen how much of an improvement this will have on the offense. The Eagles have scored more than 17 points in their last five games. All skill position players other than TE Dallas Goedert have been underperforming fantasy assets.
