On Sunday, it comes to the duel between the NY Jets and the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles come into the game with a loss in the bag, while the Jets can go into the game with a broad chest.

Reason enough to take a close look at the respective matchups. Who should you start and who should you sit on your fantasy football teams?

Start: Jalen Hurts, QB, Philadelphia Eagles

In the loss to the rival NY Giants, Jalen Hurts had his weakest game of the season. He completed just 45.2 percent of his passes and threw three interceptions — the most he's thrown this season. Still, Hurts is someone you should start on your fantasy football teams.

The Jets have allowed 22.5 fantasy points to quarterbacks over the last three weeks. This would also be the number of points to expect for Hurts against the Jets. Finally, Hurts has only had four games under 20 fantasy points so far this season.

Start: Zach Wilson, QB, NY Jets

Even though Zach Wilson helped lead the NY Jets to victory last week, he looked anything but good. Wilson completed 15-of-24 pass attempts against the Texans. In the process, he threw one interception and no touchdowns. He did, however, score a rushing touchdown on his two rushes for three yards.

It's safe to assume that Zach Wilson didn't do well in this win. The Eagles defense ranks in the middle of the league in allowing 19.6 fantasy points to quarterbacks over the last three weeks.

Add to that four passing touchdowns allowed and two interceptions in the last three weeks. 
So the conditions aren't too bad for Wilson to continue to improve his performance.

Start: Elijah Moore, WR, NY Jets

Elijah Moore is the number one wide receiver on the Jets so he should start. Add to that the fact that he has never scored under 10 fantasy points in his last six games. This is to be expected against the Eagles as well.

Even though the Eagles have the fifth-best pass defense over the last three weeks and have allowed just 24.1. fantasy points per game, there is a lot to be said for Elijah Moore.

After all, Moore is the only receiver who consistently gets targets — no matter the quarterback — and also knows how to convert those targets into yards accordingly.
