The New York Jets look to make it two straight wins when they host the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 13. FanDuel Sportsbook has the Eagles slated as big 7-point road favorites.

If you need some help with your fantasy lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Week 13 showdown.

Jalen Hurts Fantasy

Start Jalen Hurts, QB, Philadelphia Eagles: The New York Jets defense is terrible against both the rush and pass, but actually allows just the 11th-most points to opposing QBs. Still, Jalen Hurts could be in for a monster week because of his abilities as a runner. New York allows 128.7 rushing yards per contest (6th-most) and Hurts just torched the Giants, who allow the 7th-most rushing yards, for 77 yards on the ground. He's the only reliable playmaker in Philadelphia's offense and leads the team with 122 rushing attempts, 695 rushing yards and 8 TDs with his legs.

Elijah Moore Fantasy

Start Elijah Moore, WR, New York Jets: Elijah Moore has been on a tear since finding himself back in the starting lineup in Week 11. In two games, he's averaged 9.5 targets, 6 receptions, 93.5 receiving yards and 0.5 TDs, and ranks as WR7 in PPR leagues. Philadelphia ranks just 23rd in Football Outsiders' pass-defense DVOA metric and Moore should continue rolling in Week 13.

DeVonta Smith Fantasy

Sit DeVonta Smith, WR, Philadelphia Eagles: DeVonta Smith hasn't stood out as a fantasy producer in his rookie campaign and owns only three games with at least 9 targets. He averages just 4 receptions and 57.2 yards per contest as a result. Philadelphia already rushes the ball at the highest clip in the NFL, in part thanks to Jalen Hurts, and that trend will continue against a Jets defense that ranks 30th in rush-defense DVOA.

Ty Johnson Fantasy

Sit Ty Johnson, RB, New York Jets: Ty Johnson is only fantasy relevant because of Michael Carter's placement on the IR. However, he continues to play second fiddle to Tevin Coleman on the depth chart. Johnson managed 7 yards per attempt in Week 12, but was only given 6 attempts compared to Coleman's 16. New York even stopped using Johnson as a pass-catching back as evidenced by his total of 2 targets in the past two games. Leave Johnson on the bench against an Eagles defense ranks middle of the pack (16th) in Football Outsiders' rush-defense DVOA metric.
