    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood will have a 'pretty significant role' in the upcoming season, according to Reuben Frank of 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Philadelphia Eagles rookie RB Wendell Smallwood rushed 13 times for 48 yards in the Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks and he added four receptions for 31 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood picked up the slack once both Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles exited with injuries. Smallwood might be a decent pick-up in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams as a flex fantasy option. If he gets a majority of the touches in the Philly backfield in Week 12 against the banged up Packers he could excel.

    Philadelphia Eagles rookie RB Wendell Smallwood rushed 13 times for 70 yards in the Week 10 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He did not have any receptions on one target.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood proved effective on his chances and could see more opportunity in the future. For now, though, he should be reserved for a difficult road matchup in Seattle in Week 11.

    Philadelphia Eagles rookie RB Wendell Smallwood is averaging 3.8 yards per rush on 29 carries, but he fumbled away his only carry in the Week 8 loss against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood has shown some flashes, but with veterans Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles ahead of him, Smallwood is fighting with Kenjon Barner for scraps and can ill-afford any additional fumbles.

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (head) left the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 27, in order to be evaluated for a head injury.

    Huddle Up: At this point, Smallwood should be viewed as nothing more than a late-round flier in fantasy leagues containing 12 or more teams. However, he could make a viable in-season option if the Eagles suffer an injury at the position.

  • Posted: 8/9/2016 10:53am ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (quadriceps) will miss the first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: Smallwood would need an injury ahead of him to crack fantasy rosters as more than a late-round flier. Keep an eye on him late in camp.

  • Posted: 8/5/2016 3:34pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (quadriceps) did not practice Friday, Aug. 5.

    Huddle Up: That's three straight days now on the sidelines, which isn't helping the fifth-round rookie's quest to learn the offense and earn snaps.

  • Posted: 8/3/2016 1:29pm ET

    Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (quadriceps) is out of practice Wednesday, Aug. 3, due to a quadriceps strain.

    Huddle Up: Training-camp injuries and absences are particularly tough for rookies, who need the reps and work to get up to speed in their new offenses at the pro level. Something to keep an eye on with a back who's on more than a few sleeper lists.
