    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) rushed once for five yards in Week 8 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added one catch for nine yards on two targets.

    Huddle Up: While there is no official word from the team, Smallwood had been limited due to a knee injury and the team might have simply powered his down in Week 8 with rainy and slippery conditions on the fieldturf in Philadelphia. Plus, the game was well in hand from the outset and that might have been a factor rather than having him possibly aggravate his ailment. Corey Clement benefitted from Smallwood's absence, serving as a nice understudy for LeGarrette Blount.

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood should serve as the No. 2 running back for the Eagles and will receive a limited amount of touches during the game. Owners in deeper leagues could consider Smallwood as a flex option.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 1:10pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood returned in Week 7 after missing some time and finished with 39 total yards. He should continue to serve as the team's No. 2 running back and will see limited playing time this week. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but can also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 4:17pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood fought through injury to play Monday, and he managed eight runs for 25 yards with two grabs for 14 yards. Right now he should be treated as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy play heading into Week 8 until he proves he is fully healthy and his touches increase. As long as LeGarrette Blount is healthy Smallwood's fantasy ceiling is rather limited.

  • Posted: 10/21/2017 12:39pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood was a full participant during practice this week, so he should have a good chance to play in Week 7. He will receive a limited amount of touches if he plays but could still be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 2:01pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day on Friday, Oct. 20.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood appears to be on target to play in Monday's game against the Redskins. He remains a solid RB3 or flex fantasy play heading into Week 7, even with the presence of LeGarrette Blount.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 12:27pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood was impressive in his last game, totaling 79 yards and finding the end zone once. He's the Eagle's most versatile healthy running back right now but his ceiling is limited because of LeGarrette Blount. Wait at least a week before plugging Smallwood back into starting lineups.

  • Posted: 10/17/2017 9:37am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB1 Wendell Smallwood (knee) told reporters he expects to play in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins after participating in practice Tuesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: The Eagles have been getting by fine without Smallwood for the last two weeks, but he was starting to come on in the Darren Sproles role of this offense prior to going down. Assuming he is able to return this week, owners should view him as a capable flex option in a game where his abilities as a receiver may be needed more than usual.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 8:55am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: If Smallwood can't go against the Carolina Panthers, LeGarrette Blount would enjoy another week of increased usage. If Smallwood suits up, it's probably in a limited role. He's not a great fantasy option this week. Blount is worthy of flex consideration regardless.

  • Posted: 10/9/2017 4:21pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) did not participate in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 9.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood was not able to play in Week 5 and probably does not have a great chance to play this week because of the short week. Corey Clement and Kenjon Barner will continue to see increased work if Smallwood sits again but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 5:10am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) is unlikely to play in Week 5's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood was listed as questionable on the injury report despite not practicing during the week. LeGarrette Blount, Corey Clement and Kenjon Barner are likely to see an increased number of carries if Smallwood is inactive but they should all be viewed as nothing more than risky flex options in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 1:40pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) did not practice for the third consecutive day Friday, Oct. 6, but he is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: The team appears to be holding out hope Smallwood will be able to go through pre-game workouts and be ready despite not practicing. If he is limited or inactive, LeGarrette Blount figures to see a bump in usage, while Kenjon Barner and Corey Clement are also likely to see a larger role.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 7:53pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) is expected to be listed as questionable to face the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5, according to a source close to the situation.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood filled the void left by Darren Sproles last week, but if he is sidelined, Corey Clement and Kenjon Barner should see increased roles. However, neither Clement or Barner would be more than DFS lottery tickets.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 2:13pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Smallwood will be ruled out for Week 5. He has received a bigger role since Darren Sproles suffered his season-ending injury but is a risky option this week. Corey Clement would see more work if Smallwood is ruled out and could be a flex option.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 12:28pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Smallwood's status later in the week to see if he is in any danger of missing the Week 5 game. He has been more involved in the offense since Darren Sproles suffered his injury and posted 79 total yards in Week 4. He could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues if he is active.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 7:50pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood finished with 10 carries for 34 yards and a touchdown and four catches on six targets for 45 yards in a 26-24 win over the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: Carries were split up between Smallwood, LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement, but Smallwood's role in the passing game could make him a flex candidate in PPR formats going forward.

  • Posted: 9/26/2017 11:26am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood will have more opportunities going forward due to RB Darren Sproles (knee, arm) being on the Reserve/Injured list, according to offensive coordinator Frank Reich.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood is one of the top waiver wire pickups this week, but both Corey Clement and LeGarrette Blount will stint his fantasy ceiling. Still, Smallwood has the most upside in Philadelphia's backfield, but don't expect him to serve as more than a flex.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 4:26pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood rushed 12 times for 71 yards in the Week 3 game against the New York Giants and he added one catch for nine yards on two targets.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood and LeGarrette Blount shouldered much of the load in this one. Until one of the backs in Philly emerges as the go-to guy, Smallwood should only be considered as a RB3 or flex option. The Eagles travel to meet the Chargers in Week 4.

  • Posted: 8/14/2017 6:28am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 14.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood was making some noise before he lost a week due to injury. He has some work to do, but he's in the RB5 category.

  • Posted: 8/7/2017 6:21am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (hamstring) is out Monday, Aug. 7, due to a hamstring injury.

    Huddle Up: It's unfortunate timing as he was starting to carve a larger role. Smallwood is an RB5 flyer if he returns quickly.

  • Posted: 7/24/2017 9:26pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood will have a 'pretty significant role' in the upcoming season, according to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com. He added that the team likes Smallwood.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood shined at times last year during his rookie campaign, but it may be wishful thinking to believe he can carve out a significant role, at least for fantasy purposes, in the new season. After all, the Eagles signed workhorse LeGarrette Blount and drafted Donnel Pumphrey, not to mention they already have Darren Sproles, making it highly unlikely that Smallwood will be a consistent contributor in 2017.

  • Posted: 3/2/2017 7:05pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood in the mix at running back, according to head coach Doug Pederson, and Perderson said he wants to see where Smallwood is at physically coming off a knee injury last season.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood could emerge as Philadelphia's starting back this season, but he could also be part of a committee. He has RB2 upside if things break in his favor, so keep tabs on him throughout the offseason.

  • Posted: 12/12/2016 10:04am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) will 'miss time' after being diagnosed with an MCL sprain following a Week 14 loss to the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: MCL sprains are typically multi-week injuries, so it's a good bet Smallwood will not be available again during the fantasy playoffs. Albeit with a few high points along the way, his rookie season has been something of a wash in Philadelphia's muddled backfield. With Darren Sproles also dealing with a concussion, Ryan Mathews could be featured in Week 15 versus the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 8:31pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles rookie RB Wendell Smallwood rushed eight times for just 19 yards in the Week 13 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He also had zero catches on three targets.

    Huddle Up: With Ryan Mathews sidelined again, it was a very disappointing performance for Smallwood and his fantasy owners. He will look to rebound in Week 14 against the Washington Redskins, but should be treated more as a RB3 for that matchup.

  • Posted: 12/3/2016 6:10pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood said he is more comfortable with the lead back role heading into Week 13 than he was last week.

    Huddle Up: The Eagles abandoned the ground game early in Week 12 when they fell behind against Green Bay, but a friendlier matchup against Cincinnati Sunday should mean more work for Smallwood. He is a potential flex option in standard formats and a low-priced sleeper in DFS games.

  • Posted: 11/28/2016 8:51pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles rookie RB Wendell Smallwood rushed nine times for 37 yards in the Week 12 game against the Green Bay Packers Monday, Nov. 28, and he added one reception for 10 yards on his only catch.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood didn't do much against a Packers rush defense which is strong. If Ryan Mathews is able to return in Week 13, Smallwood's fantasy window of usefulness gets, well, smaller.

  • Posted: 11/26/2016 9:02am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood has filled in at practice for Ryan Mathews (knee) all week and it appears he has done nothing to dim some of the positive buzz he earned shortly after the draft. 'I really like what we see in Wendell, both in the run game and in pass protection. I like everything about him. I think he's a really good football player, and I think the more he plays that's just going to show more and more,' offensive coordinator Reich said.

    Huddle Up: With Mathews likely limited or out for a few weeks and Darren Sproles dealing with a rib injury, Smallwood could actually serve as something resembling a lead back in an offense that has shuffled through as many as four running backs this year. Kenjon Barner should mix in as well, but it sounds like Smallwood will have a chance to start fast against the decimated Green Bay Packers' defense in Week 12.
